All employees are treated             .

    This area of the site will be an open forum for CSX employees to discuss all forms of harassment and discrimination on the job. As many of us have seen, the company's first priority is the company, not the rights of it's workers.

    Coming soon... Audio Files of real employees being harassed and discriminated against.

They have to know where trains are. Ask a dispatcher.
Denying penalty claims (even valid ones, for whatever reason) is an age
old tactic.  Uncommon that one is paid right away.  Have to submit all
info properly to your LC when claims are denied & hope that they're
handled & forwarded. Then be patient.  May take yrs.  If valid, the RR
eventually has to ante up -- at the pay rate applicable when submitted.
 Aggravating but the way it usually is.

CALL HOMELAND SECURITY


Labor relations is at it again!  Just denied my claim and 2 other guys
stating that the GPS data system says our trains never ran on the
territory we claimed.  THEY LOST OUR FRICKING  TRAINS AGAIN! THIS IS
BULLSHIT. HOW CAN A RAILROAD LOSE THEIR FRICKING TRAINS. HOW CAN THEY
NOT FIND OR KEEP TRACT OF OUR TRAINS AND WHERE THEY ARE TRAVELING. WE
HAD HAZARDOUS MATERIAL CARS ON THE TRAIN THEY LOST. DOES THE PUBLIC
HAVE ANY IDEA HOW INSANE IT IS THAT A RAILROAD CANT KEEP TRACT OF WHERE
THEIR DANGEROUS TRAINS ARE TRAVELING.

Maybe we should be calling the USDOT and tell them whats going on too!

The problem is that current RR management are not a team. They do NOT
want improvements. They are a TEAM in the sense that Hillary and the
Donald are currently campaigning as a team to help the electorate make
better choices. If you come up with a miracle additive that adds 20% to
fuel efficiency then you are the bad guy and a target. Somewhere there
is an official in charge of purchasing that and you made him look bad.
and, HE WILL TELL HIS COUSIN HIGHER UP ABOUT THE THREAT FROM BELOW.
Your trainmaster will take heat for having an employee who sticks his
nose in company business And this goes all the way to the top. A sharp
division general manager, if such exists, is a threat to many vice
presidents. A terminal superintendent makes the division guy look
bad...not good. If you want to rise on CSX you must play the not so
bright, member of the gang, absolutely non threatening to anyone
simpleton. These are good paying jobs for managers who cannot survive
in a competitive environment.And of course this absolutely means NO
action by a common engineer or clerk. Unfortunately we have engineers
with engineering degrees...very threatening, and PTI drivers with
MBA'S in Logistics...VERY scary. No way in hell do we want bright
people exceeding their pay grade. We have rent seekers observing the
Peter principle to the max. YOU are not a lifeboat selectee on this
mans Titanic, just one of the unfortunates that get letters of regret.
It should be mentioned that many officials are relatives, dear friends
and lovers, etc. So co operation just isn't in the cards.Maybe that is
true of life in general, but it is very obvious on the RR.

Engineer Mallard,  I don't think you work for CSX or you wouldn't be
saying such nice things about them.  Maybe you have been on their
Facebook page or you have some CSX engines on your model train set in
your moms basement where u reside.  CSX sucks in a big kind of way. I
could go on for hours about how they REALLY operate their business and
treat their employees, but i'll save my time as the real CSX employees
already know.

Engineer Mallard

Bullshit with that. We here on this class 1 make a lot more than YOU
post-85 hoggers on the c-sucks corporation from the NS. We out here on
the West Coast know that.  Don't bullshit another BLE guy. We all know
who and what is being made. You must be blowing some of those TM's and
or RFE's over there like some of those SP Engineers in LA and
Bakersfield used to do to "kiss ass" and keep good with the officers.
Don't BS us on here. CSX sucks C*&K. 

Enough!

Don't really see how bad CSX is. Worked 10 years with Nazi
Southernschwitz and CSX is much nicer to me. Guys, this ain't a white
collar 9-5 job. You are transporting freight. You're gonna be treated
like shit sometimes and you gotta deal with it. Don't come into the
industry wanting a lavish working condition. There's times when I
wanna blow up at the dispatcher, but that's just part of the job. When
you factor in CSX's pay is arguably higher than any Class 1, and the
usually well kept locomotives most with ACs and good radios, you can't
hate on the company. Time is money, and we are just little laborers to
management but that's what it's like anywhere. Go join NS if you
think CSX is bad, and I'll be sitting here laughing my ass off while
you got high blood pressure and denied pay rates. The Chicken Shit
eXpress will get even better once MJW leaves in 3 years, he'll
hopefully get replaced with someone who has bigger balls and won't
negotiate with EHH for a merge.

AVON CREWS

LISTEN UP!!!  When you are called to work on a WORK train IT IS NOT
REVENUE SERVICE. You are to be issued a ticket under kind of service 9.
CMC had been issuing these tickets as through freight under kind of
service 2. They are doing this because they are in violation of article
47 in regards to work trains. If they call a work train at least 4 times
in a week they are supposed to put the job up for bid on the electronic
bid system. The company does not want to do this so they are hoping
that putting the tickets under kind of service 2 as through freight
will not draw attention to what is happening. Kind of service 9 is also
a higher rate of pay for a days work. DO NOT TAKE a work train out until
you call cmc and make them change it to a kind of service 9. If they
give you any trouble them you make sure they understand that you know
this is NOT revenue service and it is not through freight If they keep
your ticket under through freight then they are admitting that it is
being considered revenue service and they should be reporting the
service to the IRS for tax purposes.

partnership? with CSX? The BLE was founded, and flourished, based on a
need for skilled employees. Drop by an operating steam museum, show
them your newly minted engineers card, and ask to start up a steam
engine and drive it merely 50 feet. Look at a trained conductor and his
6 months or less training. That's the goal...make every employee
replaceable in 90 days. Signal forces may last a little longer...clerks
a little shorter. BTW, this links to lower management salaries. If an
engineer makes $60k over many hours, then a TM must make 60, if the
engineer makes $40k in constant dollar terms, than the TM salary will
go down. The price point is what the trucker makes, although RR
Retirement makes a difference. This is especially true as TM are
usually unskilled with "degrees", if present, from obscure schools
that have trouble placing anybody anywhere. and, of course, the trucker
has to invest in, and manage, his own truck to make best money. Almost
no operating person craft or management has any control in influencing
investment decisions, which helps guarantee poor ROI.

It's 92 degrees and this P.O.S. GP-15 has no A.C. or fan, baking in the
sun. And what do we see, Joe and Brian's fat Ass e-testing us from
inside the cab of their pick-up truck.  As usual, looking for something
chickenshit to nail us on. Fuck us to death if my conductor doesn't say
he's in a place of safety or something else while making a million
moves. It's ok to work in miserable heat while not thinking clearly
due to heat exhaustion but these fat fucks set in a air conditioned
vehicle and expect 100% rules compliance.  Safety First is a fucking
joke at CSX. Fuck you fat pieces of shit.

IN THE MEANTIME LETS TALK ABOUT THE BULLSHIT WE ARE DEALING WITH AND
TRY TO FIND A SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEMS. 

GOING TO TALK TO THE STATE HEALTH DEPARTMENT ABOUT THE AC NOT WORKING
IN THE CREW ROOM AT AVON. IM HEARING THAT SINCE WE ARE CIVILIAN
EMPLOYEES AND NOT EMPLOYED BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND THE COMPANY
HAS TO FOLLOW ALL STATE LAWS AND REGULATIONS THAT WE HAVE A RIGHT TO
FILE A COMPLAINT WITH THEIR HEALTH DEPARTMENT AGAINST THE COMPANY. THEY
ARE PUTTING THE EMPLOYEES IN UNNECESSARRY RISK OF A HEAT RELATED MEDICAL
