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.

Corporate CEO's....Be a patriot! Give-up your ill-gotten gains through
fraud, deceit, union payoffs, lobbying politicians, corporate welfare,
and greed. A "democracy" as we know it; cannot sustain such corporate
malfeasance and expect to survive!

Retired. Got really involved when a national contract was settled and
past claims where settled for an average of $1500 per member while the
Local Chairman got $7500 and worked half the time during that period. 

Theses claims were from certain incentives allowed for substandard
locomotive conditions and not allowed to eat after 5 hours on duty. 

The LC was involved in safety programs passing-out heat stroke
pamphlets in December. 

While 125 members got $6000 less in back claims. That difference of 125
x $6,000 ($750,000.00) is saved for the company and tacked on to the
CEO' salary including stock options.

There's nothing magical about railroad CEO's innovations after two
hundred years--just fine a Local Chairman who will sell-out his members
of 125 for $6000 a pop so he (LC) can get $7500.

I'm not suggesting that all LC's are corrupt--but repeat the same
process at say 200 terminals nationwide; do the math and maybe that
will help you understand why CEO's salaries and options are up 20-fold
the last 15 years. 

Everyone wants to complain about the carriers. It's your union bosses
plain and simple--from top to bottom.

Oops! Without explanation; the carrier quietly paid an average of $3700
more to each (125) member without (accounting oversight)"fault!"

The meaning of "cognitive dissonance" should be read and understood!

Nice post. They never have paid a claim that was not submitted.

Many never submit until after the fact. 

Hey man I have done that 50 times and never got a dime. OOPS forgot to
file the claim, but now want the result.

Oh well life go's on in a very wonderful way.

They never paid a claim that wasn't submitted.

They never settled a declined claim that wasn't appealed.

Know your agreement, sumbit your claims, and if they are declined, turn
them over to your local chairman for appeal.  Then stay on top of him to
make sure he does his job.

Just remember, when you submit a claim, you are the "moving party." 
As such, it is incumbent on you to provide ALL THE INFORMATION NEEDED
TO PROVE YOU CLAIM, not just the basics. It's your money, make the
effort, don't just go through the motions and expect miracles.  A
poorly submitted claim cannot be collected.

Just a little advise from an old fart who has collected thousands in
claims over my past 33 years at CSX.

I think I got a job at the Baltimore Coal Pier, in Curtis Bay MD.  Can
anyone tell me if this place is as bad as everyone says it is.  This is
a tough decision, because I have another job making more money offered
to me.

CSX has helped make the streets of Indianapolis less safe by allowing
Track Inspector Adam "A-Crash" Flowers to return to work this week.
  He was seen trolling around Hawthorn in his conrail coupe.  He said
his dad and Ralph pulled some strings and favors to get him back to
work and he even had help getting his driver's license reinstated.  I
guess it helps if your daddy is a union rep.
  It is another classic case of how CSX's rules and policies are this
way for certain people and another way for the others.

  These favors/strings pulled for Mr. Flowers only weakens the union
since it's obvious even though we pay our dues, we all do not get the
same representation.
  Several people are wondering how and why he was allowed to return to

The Union at the railroad will never be strong, unless someone educates
80-90% of its workforce to stop voting for republicans.  Just read the
facts people.  Republicans have already been responsible for many RIGHT
TO WORK states.  They hate unions and will do anything in there power to
bust a union, much like CSX management.  So stop listening to your NON
UNION bosses and do what is right for your much corrupted union at the

just wondering y and the hell the men cant stick together. the unions do
nothing. the bonus the conductors were supposed to get (by what was said
in the contract) on the first of july was pushed back to the 15th
without the union letting anyone know till the day before.....all
claims whether good or not are being deniedand i know the only guys
that are getting thier claims paid are taking them to arbitration
themselves..... ive been told stories of how combining the UTU and BLE
has fell thru in the past but maybe it is time to try again. im tired
of being screwed by this company, its time for both crafts to come at
the comany with one united union.

In response to the rear end collision in Mineral Springs, NC on   May
24, 2011 that killed the train crew:  I work in the Atlanta Division on
the A&WP and regularly speak with crews from Abbeville, SC about the
rear end collision.  I spoke with a man who has seen the download. The
engineer complied to the Approach Signal according to the operating
rules.  The crew then came back out on the power as if they were
displayed a clear signal at the intermediate siganl after the approach
signal.  The engineer blew the crossing a few hundred feet prior to the
collision and turned the bell off just seconds before. They obviously
were awake. This same employee told me that he has come out onto the
main in that area on a short local train and not show up on the
dispatchers board due to the tracks not shunting. Is there a known
problem in this area? Were they running on a clear signal? We will
probably never know cause CSX says the loco-cam was not functioning.
Its funny how if its something that can prove your guilt they always
can get the video but if its a video that can clear your name then it
never seems to work. Go figure.  I heard the NTSB took over the
investigation so maybe we will get to the bottom of it. Big maybe.

my daddy didnt work here you spoke that well, I am in about the same
boat you are.  This place is full of journeyman of nothing.  poor
training and only thing they know is strictly memorization.  Most
employees are also job scared.  Because no one else would hire them
anywhere else.

Everyone knew the circumstances when they took the job offer.     
On-call 24/7. I talk to guys everyday who say, "man I can't believe
they called me on my rest, thats crazy, man," or "man, i told you
they would turn that claim down!" (However, we do have a major issue
in this area that needs to be addressed. Its bad enough to work the
hours we do but then you gotta fight for your money. Its not right.)
Again, you knew what you were getting in when you accepted the job and
when you voted in your union representative even if he is a dirty
bastard. I feel like a shrink instead of an engineer. All the bullcrap
I listen to everyday up and down the rails from the conductor or the
guy thats in the yard office whose been here 40 yrs talking about how
he hates working for the railroad. Nobody is holding a gun to your head
making you go to work. If you can't handle the requirmemnts for
employmet then go work at wal-mart or something.  Oh yeah, wait a
minute. Where else are you going to make $100K+ year with a GED or high
school diploma?  You're not! So step-up, shut-up, get out or retire.

Have that added to your FELA suit against the UP. Contact your attorney
if you haven't already. Once in court jurors don't like to hear about
employers that fire someone in retaliation for an injury. It's also
against the law for the railroad to retaliate against someone with an
on duty injury who filed a case under FELA.

Im sick of our general chairman in the utu signing off on territory that
is new to us to be part of our assigned territory so we dont get code
75's but the engineers still get them because the blet wont sign off
on it being their assigned territory. What is the general chairman
getting in return for signing off so fast? We started going over to a
new siding on the inrd that we never have been to then the next week
the utu says thats now part of our territory its 5 miles from what was
our assigned territory

notification of discipline assessed reads "It has been determined you
failed to provide just cause for your continued absence from assignment
without authority.Therefore,you will be considered as having resigned
and your name removed from the roster per Rule 14 of the Agreement
between the Company and the Brotherhood of Maintenance of Way
