Denied Claims

Claim Invalid??

    Railroaders work, and expect to be paid. It's a simple idea. Less work means less pay. Likewise, more work should mean more pay, but that's not the way things work on the CSX. According to union contracts, there are situations that warrant additional pay, for additional work, but more often than not, these claims are not honored by the CSX.

Lesson 101

The cold hard facts are as follows:

No one stands for their unions anymore. The young cubs of today come
from a different breed of Union families. They have very little
experience with them and didn't stand on the battle lines when scabs
were picketed and Union brothers stuck together to kick worthless Union
officials out of office. Todays Unions are no better than they were when
the mofia ran them. They count on everyone complaining and not doing a
thing about it. Pay them their dues and reap what you sow!

Csx has shown itself time and time again as an inept company. Putting
out bulletins just to cancel them hours after they have been published
along with not being able to get proper work orders, locate 
information on cars on line or road, not having foreign line rules
classes, not providing rules books and info in a timely manner, giving
failures on rules that aren't even in existence anymore, losing
training history of employees, failure to pay new hires on a timely
manner, misclassifying deadheads, failing to call taxi's for relief of
crews, losing trains on the GPS systems, missing paper work for RSSM
cars and the list just goes on and on and on.....This is all just a
joke of a nightmare or just one big Disneyland ride!
The only thing that keeps this company afloat is the backers. READ THE
EMPLOYEE GATEWAY!  When was the last time you took a real good look at
all the pat me on the back propaganda. Inflated stock prices and smoke
and mirror business is the only thing that keeps CSX afloat,
You want your job? You want to retire with a good check?
The only thing you can do is come to work and keep your mouth shut. If
you don't have the balls or friends to back you out here and who are
willing to make the Union International reps life miserable then you
have nothing.
You can however take care of yourself and make sure you are not the one
being set up or stalked for standing your ground! CSX is not a federally
owned company. The are regulated by the Feds but they are not owned by
them. CSX MUST FOLLOW ALL STATE AND LOCAL LAWS. CSX IS NOT EXEMPT FROM
LAWSUITS CHARGED AGAINST THEM FOR BREAKING THESE LAWS.
FRA LAWS ARE TO BE FOLLOWED. If you are being forced, intimidated or
harassed into breaking any of the stated laws you have the right to
report/whistle blow if need be.
Unfortunately there is no protection for your pay issues. Your only
recourse is to deal with your unions. Good luck with that if you are a
wimp and wont follow through on your claims. 
You can however look at what your problems are and if you are smart you
can figure out what other avenues can be used to settle your issues. 
One of my favorites was when I was denied pay for a trip the company
claimed I never did. Now this was just plain insane and it wasn't
necessary to take this to the union. After I faxed enough information
to the payroll/HR/Operations and corporate lodging it was taken care
of. Someone had a lot of egg on their face but it was paid. 
There are a lot of avenues one can take. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO USE YOUR
UNION AS THE FIRST COURSE OF ACTION IF THERE IS A PROBLEM WITHIN THE
DEPARTMENTS OF CSX. IT IS YOUR DUTY AND RESPONSIBILITY AS A STOCKHOLDER
AND EMPLOYEE OF CSX TO BRING ANY PROBLEMS FORWARD THAT YOU HAVE
ENCOUNTERED OR DISCOVERED WHILE BEING INVOLVED WITH CSX IN ANY
CAPACITY.
If you get anything out of this post, let the last paragraph be the
information that sticks in your head. You may not be able to control
the changes that are coming with job descriptions, classifications or
wages but you do have the power to protect yourself and others and work
in a safe and harassment free environment as well as a productive and
lucrative one.   
Don't be small minded. THINK OUTSIDE OF THE BOX!

You're a dumbass.  An operator is a skilled trade. It can be used
anywhere in the world in any industry.  Takes years to become an
operating engineer.   A locomotive engineer's FRA cert is shit at
best.  I've trained chimps in two days to run a train.  One cannot
intelligently compare the two.

Yeah right! 51 bucks an hour? Are you serious, lol! More like 22 an
hour. Don't post carp on here like that. 

This is a company mole trying to make sure more people dont quit. They
know most furloughed employees are not coming back and the pressure is
being felt so this idiot put this on there to help retain employees a
while longer. When May comes there will be a post about some delay in
the negotiations but back pay will be offered. Don't fall for this bs.

Hourly wages

Just heard yesterday that some officials at the school in Atlanta were
saying that the hourly wages were a done deal and we just don't know
it yet. We all know how rumors are but this came from someone still
involved with the school.  Better be getting up your Local Chairman and
General Chairman's rear and get some straight answers on the
negotiations going on behind your backs!

Today, after the market closed, CSX reported record profits of over
six hundred fifty million dollars ($650,000,000.00). And it seems that
Hunter Harrison's hand-picked successor was the right choice.

We salute you Mr. Foote...!And now, we'll swallow or pride and drink

BLET/UTUE MEMBERS

I just got an email that stated that CSX/CMC did not violate any rules
in regards to notifying the engineers at Avon that there were going to
be changes to the west end pools
.

Per Article 74  of the SSA the CMC has to issue a message stating any
changes in on/off duty points, working limits, rate of pay, etc, Has to
be advertised early enough so that engineers can adjust their bid cards
accordingly.  Since they posted it in the crew management messages that
we can all view at work they claim they have followed the agreement with
no violations.

How many people actually read the crew management messages on a regular
basis.  OK people, its time to get it together. If this is how we are
going to be given a heads up on all the future changes that we are
headed for with the new CEO then we all have to stay on this! 

Another disturbing bit of info I was given was the unions are claiming
they had no idea that this was going down and was a done deal with the
company.   BULL CRAP!  If it was in the messages with the company then
there is no way in hell they wouldn't know. They started adding
messages 4 weeks ago sending hints this was going to happen. Look at
the Job descriptions in the JAD. Look at the crew management messages.
They conflict with each other. One says no days off and the other says
6-2. Other things conflict as well as the rate of pay for the salem
run. No way in hell the Unions don't know this is going on.  If they
say they don't they are blowing smoke up everyone's butts and
treating their own LC'S like they are retarded idiots! That's right!
Retarded. I said it!
The company is supposed to give the Unions a 30 day notice of any
changes they are going to implement in order for both parties to meet
and discuss the issues. If any union official says they didn't know
then they are just lying through their teeth. I don't believe for one
minute that CSX blindsided them and failed to let them know. They might
have done it in a way that left them fumbling in the dark trying to find
it but there is no doubt they did. Posting it on the CMC messages is not
the proper way to notify the unions. If they pulled a stunt like this
then its just plain dirty pool and that is grounds to file charges
against CSX for not negotiating in good faith.  We need some answers.
We need to know why our unions are playing dumb and keeping the LCs out
of the loop. This is bull crap.

In the meantime everyone needs to read the CMC messages everyday and
the minute they see a change they need to notify their GC and their
LC's immediately. No more playing games! The game is on! Stand
together brothers!

Brothers

The writing is on the wall. With the push of a newer super pool at avon
yard without any given notice from any union official including the
LC's as well, we are all going to get screwed and lose all of our
seniority rights and choice of working conditions. Come on people!!!
Wake the hell up. How did anyone find out what was going down. They
read it in the crew management messages on the computers at work. Its
total bullshit that you have to find out anything that they may be up
to by reading the damn company computers. Where the hell is our union
representation. People got screwed over on their bid cards because
there were no real official warnings from anyone that it was a done
deal and was going down. The men who were screwed because they didn't
have their bid cards changed need to file Ethics charges against crew
management and demand a statement from their unions. If the bid cards
still contained the wrong information and no official notification was
sent out that is grounds to file suit. This is just another example of
the total lack of respect for the employees and the inept actions of
the officials at CSX. Why does this crap continue year after year after
year. It has nothing to do with Foote or his  cronies. This has been
going on with this company for the last 20 years. They were a joke the
day they took over conrail. As for the unions we have no one to blame
but ourselves. We have ever right to sue them by federal law. Read the
LMRDA rights for union members in the United states. We close our eyes
and turn away and now we have unions who disrespect us to the point
that we cant even get an answer from them or any notices of changes
that are occurring in the work place. Its just a sad joke anymore. When
the hell is it going to stop! If we all put a hold on our union dues,
you can bet your bottom dollar we would get their attention. That's
the only thing that will work. Hit them in the pocket book. Right now
as far as Im concerned they are stealing us blind and not representing
us to the fullest extent possible. Leaving us in the dark all the time
and relying on the company rumor mill to learn anything is totally
unacceptable! Something has to give and soon!

Before signing anything, you better consider how much your livelihood,
your family, spending time with family are worth. Personally I wouldn’t
sell my soul for no less than 50 bucks an hour. Once the Railroad has
you then your life is done. 30 years experience talking here. Just what
is your freedom worth?
