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.

Re; Jim Jones:

Per your concerns, one would say: Where is your union? And then a
Corporate Officer would say: A corrupt union officer is the lowest scum
on earth! They will sell out there mother just to get a paid weekend
off. And then a Rail Ceo would say: Corrupt union officers are easy to
find as long as we wave a twenty dollar bill at them, they will keep
throwing away claims and continue looking the other way!

No one is forcing anyone to work, so leave. Mr. Harrison has plans for
the new hires!

Hey guys.  That 300 million you are paying Hunter is way too much.  I'd
screw up your railroad for a fraction of that.  I come cheaper because I
bought my degree from a diploma mill.  Hunter cut off 1000 workers
before he even started.  That's pretty good, but I'd also cut off any
tuition assistance cause that's a waste.

Dear Colleagues,

Strong leadership on the Operations team is critically important as we

in whom I have the utmost confidence based on their deep experience,
passion for our business and unwavering commitment to CSX. Together,
they will help us continue to expedite our advancements in safety,
service and efficiency.

These leadership changes reflect our stated intention to reorganize our
operations around the primary and local networks to improve efficiency
and service to our customers. The leaders will report to me, unless
otherwise indicated. Effective immediately:

Mike Pendergrass will continue to serve as Chief Transportation
Officer, leading the implementation of our network segmentation
strategy. Reporting to Mike are:
∑         Jermaine Swafford, who is appointed vice president of
Transportation, with responsibility for our Primary Network;
∑         Gery Williams, who is appointed to the newly created position
of vice president of the Local Network, with responsibility for helping
us further improve first-mile, last-mile service to our customers; and
∑         Bob Frulla, who will have expanded responsibility as vice
president of Network Operations, with oversight of Customer Service,
Passenger Operations and PTC.
The corridor structure will be further supported by the leadership of
Larry Koster, who will serve as General Manager of the Eastern
Corridor, headquartered in Florence, S.C.; David Hamby, who will serve
as General Manager of the Central Corridor, headquartered in Atlanta,
Ga.; and Bill Setser, who will serve as General Manager of the Northern
Corridor, headquartered in Indianapolis, Ind. Larry, David and Bill will
report to Jermaine.

Brian Barr is promoted to vice president of Mechanical, in recognition
of his strong performance as chief mechanical officer for the Southern

John Bradley is appointed vice president of Service Design, having
previously served as vice president of Southern Region Transportation.
The Car Management and Process Excellence teams will now report to

Rod Logan is appointed assistant vice president of Safety, responsible
for further strengthening our focus and performance in this critical

Ricky Johnson will remain as vice president of Engineering, with
expanded responsibility to include oversight of our Highly Automated
Railroad initiatives.

Mike Smith, Jim Marks and John Hart are retiring. Mike, Jim and John
have made important contributions to CSX during their many years of
service, for which we are immensely grateful. We wish them equal
success in their future endeavors.

The Operations leaders will work together over the coming weeks to
finalize their reporting structures. Please join me in supporting them
as they take on new responsibilities and help us safely and reliably
serve our customers and our nationís economy.

the rhetoric; double standards, lip service, hypocrisy, BS.

I agree, a lot of claims that are submitted for review are not valid.
However, I have personally called employees in the Labor Relations
Dept. and asked them what conditions have to be met for a specific
claim to be valid.  I have submitted the valid claim per Labor
Relations instructions only to have it declined. Once declined, I have
called the specific Labor Relations employee back and asked why it was
declined. Their answer is "Their is a Process that must be followed to
get the claim paid" and they say forward it to my Local Chairman.  

   Well B.S. The "Process" if fucking stealing from their employees
and not honoring the agreement that was signed by the Carrier.  It is
nothing more than a attempt to overwhelm the Local and General
Chairman's offices appealing Valid claims that should have been paid
initially.  All this ethics training is just a bunch of lip service as
CSX is speaking out their ass about being a ethical company. Just like
their anti-retaliation policy, that's a story for another day. OUT

That's real easy to say not to step up or volunteer. Doesn't do a
damn bit of good when a tm comes up to you after you been gone at the
hotel for 48 stinking hours and you come in on a train after 10 hours
on duty and they grab you and ask if you can go drag a train in then
when you say no I am tired and want to go home they say " WELL WE
WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU SAY. HUH? We said no again then we were order to
do it or be charged with insubordination. Then they stand there and lie

Everything you posted was 100% correct. What you did not post was the
fact that the members do not need the union to start a chain reaction
of worry within the companies upper management. What the members fail
to understand is the power they have in reporting constant violations
of federal and state laws. We received a call a few days ago from a
concerned crew member who was being forced to violate FRA laws and
regulations and wanted to know what to do. He was advised to
immediately call the appropriate FRA representative and file a
complaint. His first comment was one of fear of retaliation. He was
them asked why did he bother to call if he wasn't going to take the
advise and if he expected us to call that wasn't going to happen. He
was the one in the situation and knew what was happening.

People, if you know your unions are worthless and possibly bought under
the table then it is your responsibility to take control of your
situation. The carrier can easily violate your union agreement. If you
have not figured that out yet then your in for a long miserable haul
working for the railroad.
The carrier CAN NOT break state and federal laws. Yes, they do on a
daily basis but it is up to you to report these violations and to send
a message to the company that you mean business. If your rights are
violated on a daily basis then the state and federal regulators should
know when are being violated as well. This is not a fair game that the
railroads are playing and you can not expect to play fair and make a
difference. It doesn't work that way. 
Take a stance and do what is right. Report all violations and demand
fair play and treatment for yourself and your state and federal

The post was not from Adam. Wrong assumption. Not sure he would
appreciate his name being posted on this site. Sure you meant no harm.
Now a little education for you and other posters.

As for your comment to sick, posting on this site that the CMC managers
are being put on notice is the perfect thing to do. If you have not read
any post on this site before, the FRA as well as an appointed team for
the lawyers of CSX reads this site every day. It is a blatant violation
for a crew caller to call someone in the manner that "SICK" has
pointed out when the crew managers are well aware that this topic is
covered in the SSA and is written in black and white. There is NO GRAY
AREA! The excuse they are using now is that the IVR is violating the
rule. It is set up to automatically run the rosters and anyone in AO
status will get automatically called in the window between 2201 and
0000. NO EXCUSE!!
They are responsible for the programing of the IVR system. They have
been using this as an excuse since they were down sized and jobs were
replaced by the machine. 
If you having issues with anyone in CSX and need to point out the
problems do not hesitate to post your notice to them on this site. 
It is a fact that TM, RF and other supervisors visit this site on a
regular basis and have been heard very frequently discussing the topics
posted on here. Therefore they can not say they are not aware of
situations that are taking place and therefore they are turning a blind
eye. Yes, they do nothing about what they read but that puts them at
fault according to the ethics policy.

You should have received a copy of the code of ethics in the mail. Read
page 38 covering social media. Read the first line of the last

REPORT IT IMMEDIATELY! The csx group who is assigned to monitor this
site regularly is NOT EXEMPT from this policy! Actions such as those
that are occurring within the CMC could easily be seen as an attempt to
create hostility.

Official notice came in today. The Engineers bonus will be figured at
100% and will be payable on February 22nd. There have been rumors
floating around that some in upper management have been claiming they
were getting a 125% bonus. These are just rumors and nothing has been
clarified. However it does not matter. The contractual bonus agreement
states that the bargaining unit will not request an audit or review of
the corporate books to determine if your percentage is being figured

Can any of you railroaders explain this?I know a guy that was told by
csx that he was hired for a track worker position.For some reason csx
kept giving him the run around made him take a drug test and physical 2
or 3 times but never told him he failed anything.For whatever reason he
was never hired by csx after being told he had the job and was never
given an explanation as to why he wasn't hired.Anybody know why csx
did this?
