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.

Yeah...because we did so well under the last PEB appointed by Obama and
the "labor friendly" Democrats who were in power. We got f@#ked.
Labor's strength didn't come from some bullshitting politicians. It
came from men who had the balls to stand up to greedy corporations and
demand what was rightfully their's. If you think some political party
is going to do the dirty work for you, you are sadly mistaken. Vote no
on this piece of shit concession laden contract and strike if
necessary.

To those wanting to vote "no" on this contract better do your homework
on what are the next options. There are none. Trump can appoint a
Presidential Emergency Board or let Congress handle it. A PEB under
Trump would be disaster mostly his rich cronies who would side with the
railroads. Congress you don't want to go there, it'll open up
Pandora's box. It'll give them the right to not only dictate the
contract but also the right to go after Railroad Retirement, single man
crews, letting outside contractors in, the list goes on. Paul Ryan has
tried to go after RRB for years. He wants to strip it down to Social
Security levels. Even though RRB doesn't cost taxpayers one thin dime.
As for healthcare yours is inexpensive compared to what's out there.
The unions managed to cap it so no increase in the premium. The
railroads wish list was premiums of $750 for employee add the family
for another $750 totaling $1500 a month. Look at PEB 219 back around
1991 at what happened. Railroaders lost a lot. This contract only runs
to 2020 which there's back time included. Those unions on CSX that
already have on-property contracts till 2020 like the BLE the national
is about healthcare. Under HH most likely the last on-property
contract. Unless he gets his hourly wage package. Which would cut
around 30-40% of all jobs.

To Amazed, 
                     I respect your opinion. We are all entitled to
one. However, if youíre going to degrade railroaders for being less
intelligent than you, I suggest you spell check first. 
ďappenertlyĒ is not a word. Also, I know of very few craft workers that
earn an average of $100k annually.  And if they do earn that much, itís
definitely a detriment to their quality of life. Weíre talking 65-80
hour work weeks. Even offshore-men get decent time off away from work,
generally 21days on 21days off. Every penny railroaders make is earned.

The only chance you have to fight this CEO is help from the government.
Pushing for the government to issue a cease and desist to the CEO for
interfering with interstate commerce and numerous contract violations
for both the union and shippers is a great option. Someone needs to tie
that meddling fools hands before he destroys anymore lives. The shippers
coalition is a union alliance must. Maybe together they can stop him.
Others have not banded together and the result was a mess. Do not wait.
Push hard and fast to remove him. He is pushing faster and harder now
that this is his third go around at this. Hunter Harrison is relying on
employees being afraid to comply with the rules in order to move
freight. He is relying on each employee being afraid to stand up and
say something because there will be reprucusions. Essentially silincing
the work force while he has his way. Do not be afraid, under different
circumstances this is considered rape. Legal professionals, not
everyday ďI think I am a lawyer but I donít have a degreeĒ individuals
need to be avoided. This belongs is true professional legal hands.
Every occurrence individually isnít enough, but all combined there is a
case.

Everyone!  

Even though that horrible CEO has taken over and disrupted so many
lives let's not forget that it's Thanksgiving. We all have something
to be thankful for. If not out jobs then the love of family,friends,a
home,a loyal pet or our health. Let's all stop for just a few minutes
and thank someone for something good they have brought to our lives. Be
positive even if things seems hopeless. God works in mysterious ways.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.

Lloyd
"Negative morale" is not up for negotiation.
It's no secret that HH doesn't give a shit about you or me. Put in
your hours and collect a paycheck.
As far as the contract is concerned, I believe we will end up better
off ratifying it than if we leave it up to the government. Your ideal
contract isn't one of our options as far as I can tell.

VOTE YES

I don't give 2 shits or feel sorry about a dispatcher that gets a
moving truck and company buys their house through appendix 2. I read
the homeless article. Lots of facts left out of it. Like selling a
house before you get a definite move date. What did the ATDA do for the
Ex Huntington dispatchers that were cut off?  ATDA got the NS
dispatchers on the Central division that got closed a 170,000 dollars
to cut ties with the company or 6 years of New York Dock. 
Unbelievable!!! There's Union for ya!!!

I haven't seen morale this low in my whole career. Everybody, including
managers, hate coming to work. It's pretty sad because CSX could be a
great company with happy employees. It's mind blowing that one man can
change a fortune 300 company....

I hate it for all the men and women who have loss their jobs or who have
suffered hardships under this minister of PSRR.    He has truly messed
over the train dispatchers.    The rumor is he is wearing adult diapers
now alongside his Vader mask.  How can a man get a million dollar
contract when he can't even purchase life insurance.  


Kellogg's is getting bent over now with about 500 of their employees
and another 1000+ spin off jobs.   We can't strike because of damage
to commerce but this lunatic can get away with his bullshit.

You guys look pathetic pleading for people to "vote no" on here. You
act like you're honestly going to get a better deal with today's
economy and business ethics. Probably the same people saying no that
want the hourly wage. So many people in this company who either don't
know cause they've only ever worked here, or forgot what its like in
other professions. You could be breaking your back for 70 hours a week
in a steel mill for an OK paycheck, working for $20 bucks an hour as a
L.E.O. risking your life everyday, or you can keep getting fatter
sitting in the seat and collect your already above average paycheck
thinking you deserve more. This contract, while important, should be
the last of your worries. How about all your union brothers losing jobs
throughout the system as they keep cutting terminals and jobs? Wheres
the union comradery there?

Well, i have been swayed i will vote no,even if it means trumps lackys
give us something worse. I think no matter what, we get the contract
and HH side letters will soon follow, im just gonna sit back and wacth
the horror show unfold, to all my brothers and sisters be proud of what
you do but always remember this job doesnt define us we worked hard to
get here and i hope we fight like hell to take it back, never give up
never settle for less and please never ever become one of the "we r
just lucky to have a job" pepole. HH is putting his hand in our
pockets, taking our time from our family's and treating us like
replaceable workers, we are highly trained professionals that have many
skills and an unmatched ability to adapt to changing work conditions,
and can change our plans on the fly to complete our tasks, stand firm
stand together dont be the weak link

To Locomotive Engineer with less than 1 year of service; 
Itís imperative that you and everyone else read this contract proposal
in its entirety. The $220 a month is only agreed upon until the end of
2019. At that point it can and probably will increase drastically .
Also keep in mind that your deductibles for individual and family are
increasing to $350/$700. Thatís quite the hike. As per work rule
changes, the national agreement is just a guideline in my opinion. The
individual carrier can go back and make amendments as they see fit. Iíd
rather work without a contract for the next 8 years than keep giving up
more and more of our hard earned benefits. If CSX can afford to pay one
man $300 million for 4 years, they can afford to leave our health
insurance alone and give us 3% cost of living raises annually. We have
the right to self-help (strike) after the PEB meetings conclude. Letís
see how it plays out.

Beware.... it may be a shit deal, but you will not get a better deal.if
you don't like the health care part go buy some government health
insurance. I looked into it and for us to pay $220 A month is a deal.
Compare what you can get on the open market and compare where we will
have if it passes.just go to Obama care page and you can see for
yourself. We actually don't have bad insurance compare to what other
people pay. Now you can all call me a asshole or I do t know what I'm
talking about... I know it's coming. Just stating my opinion.

GET SMART!

The writing is on the wall and every seasoned railroader knows that if
the Union wants the proposal passed it will be. A no vote is a yes
vote. When was the last time anyone was able to force a recount or has
even challenged the unions.  No one sticks together or even wants to
try. There was a post on here from someone who said they quit paying
their dues in april. Let him explain how he has done it and see how
long he has a job after the company finds out and they fire him.  My
family has made a big decision. we will ride this contract out. In the
meantime we are cutting corners on everything. No more wasted money
spent. No big purchases. No more designer clothes for the kids. No more
eating out. Cheap bread and peanut butter for everyone. Every dime we
can stick in the bank we are doing and waiting to see what happens
later on down the road. If you guys are wise you will do the same
thing. This isn't a joke anymore. This clown is going to be here
awhile unless his lungs finally give out. Better get your heads out of
the sand and start thinking about your families future!
