It's cute that you nerds think that the process of bringing on EHH
started under Trump lol. Spoiler: It's been in the works for multiple
years. Dems are to blame this time. Trump had nothing to do with it.

Democrat policies do nothing to help trade and make your jobs harder
and fewer to come by. (Restrictions and regulations are expensive,
turns out!)

BTW: All those violent urban cities, all Democrat run. Enjoy that. :)

Worked for CSX Barr Yard and 59th St. Intermodel yard in Chicago in the
late '90's and I can tell anyone it was the the worst job experience
I ever had!! It was very disheartening that the dream job of working
for the railroad would turn out to be a "nightmare on elm street"!
The hate that employees had for each other and the double standards
that went on I couldn't see how  how anything got done!! I didn't get
off to a great start when I was acquainted with an uneducated fool
manager named mIKE sCHMIDT who after making small talk with me turned
around and asked my supervisor in reference to me "does that guy knows
his ass from a hole in the ground?" Luckily he got a promotion and I
didn't see him again because I was going to ask him "does he know his
ass from a hole in the ground!" And that sorry excuse for a union the
utu, unless you were related to a high ranking union rep, any issues
any nobody employee has with railroad management they very will be
certain  to get "thrown under the bus" by the very same people that
are supposed to have your back!! This impression that the utu
represents their members fairly and unbiased is a very crude joke! 
That experience has taught me to never trust any union any further than
I can throw up on any union!! Oh, and the rampant covert racism that
went on there, there's the one biggest lying biggot and closet racist
rAY jACKSON, a locomotive engineer I can never forget!! That uneducated
retard had utter contempt the first time I worked with him  and yet I
did nothing but cooperate and respected his presence! Since rAY JACKSON
and those other neanderthal mIKE sCHMIDT and that freckled face district
superintendent bIERMAN have that much hate for the likes of me, well
I'd like to reflect that hate back to them 1,000,000x back to
them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You sound like you side with Trump on colluding with Putin & Russia.
I'm not your Comrade. 

I served my country in 1971-74. Did you? I consider myself an American
Worker. Now retired I'll still fight for workers rights to make a
decent living. The way it's going a lot is going to be lost.
Corporations aren't going to raise wages or create jobs over lowering
the tax rate. If you think that then you're clueless. Just more
Reaganomics with Trickle Down BS that never trickles down. I expect in
10-20 years we might see a trillionaire class of rich. 30 years ago
even 20 years ago a billionaire was hard to fathom, but we have them
today. The American worker has been stagnant. If you work for the
railroad you're still fortunate to make a better than average living
all because of the unions. Be grateful for it. 

                      Signed

Hey Jim, I'll tell you like I told my LC  in a dead head bus 10 years
ago when he told me I "had" to vote for obumer, I had to vote for my
job...  I told him I could get another job, I couldn't get another
country... So if your wondering why so called "workers" are voting
Trump and Republican,just ask your self if your a "worker" or an
American, comrade

HELP!!!


Some one needs to start a watch dog group and find out how certain
engineers are getting  second tickets and getting them paid when others
cant. You are called for short turn around service to relieve line of
road trains and after 8 hours, 130 miles or traveling over 35 miles in
one direction you are entitled to a second ticket. Its so black and
white it isn't even funny. The trick is they are giving J tickets
under kind of service 4 as a road switcher instead of a ticket for the
train you relieved( such as a Q12311R. Then you demand your second
ticket after 8 hours they make it another J job with either the date
changed or the symbol but still make it a kind of service four and
insist they have the right to combine road switcher tickets and only
pay one.  We are not relieving road switchers and the the union
agreement says that road switcher jobs will be assigned and have set
days to work with no more than 100 miles per day. How the hell can they
call you a road switcher when the agreement is very clear they are
assigned jobs with assigned days to work. They are ripping every one of
us off except...... the ones who are sucking up and taking every single
job they can get called for and volunteering all the time to do extra
work for no extra tickets. We have been watching these guys and every
single time they get two or more tickets and get paid. Someone got a
hold of their info and its showing when they get away with this and a
lot of times their history states that they had no home terminal
available at released location! This is total bullshit. They are called
out of their home terminal to dog catch and return to their home
terminals with the train. So how does that work. They drag a train in
and when CMC puts in the second ticket they make it look like they took
a train to an outlying point where there was no terminal or hotel to go
to and came back so they get another ticket for going out again!! They
aren't making them take a second J ticket either. They have been
getting the through freight train symbol. I don't get it. This is
outright lying and false information. I would live the see the mile
post they put on these guys tickets to show where they left from and
came back! 
This is total bullshit that these guys are getting favoritism when we
are doing the same thing they are and they are no better than we are.
They are called for J jobs just like us and should be screwed over the
same way with the bogus road switcher crap they are using on all of us
who are not doing one single thing as an assigned road switcher. Its
time we all started demanding that our tickets reflect the real work we
are doing. If we are going out and dragging in dead through freight
trains then we all need to demand that our tickets reflect the kind of
service it really is, Kind of service 2 and not this bullshit road
switching service. A road switcher is called a road switcher because it
does switching service. The damn through road freight trains on long
pools are not road switchers. 
Enough of this shit and this favoritism. We need to start blowing these
guys in who are getting these tickets when others aren't.

New 2018 operating plan.

1. We will push out 1/2 of our customers. (The 1/2 who have other  
shipping options)

2. We will keep 1/2 of our customers. (The 1/2 who have no other
shipping options)

3. We will reduce T&E by a least 1/2.

4. We will run our trains on strict time frames.

5. We will charge our customers 2.5x their previous shipping cost for
PSR.

6. Our RR will double in value.  We will be making more money than ever
with this plan. With  1/2 the cost for manpower, less fuel cost, less  
 cost for power, 1/2 wear and tear on track and equipment.

That's why I make the Big Bucks

I've been to union meetings.  I get frustrated and I don't go back
for 6months to a year.   

The one conclusion I've came to  is they are a Total Waste of Fucking 

Time.   If every member of a local showed up at every single meeting
the only change would be that the meeting would be moved from a
telephone booth to a suite in Jax HQ.   

I am Pro Union hardcore 4th generation but without the power to strike
our union sucks and UTU sucks Mr. Ed's dick.

Stand

Don't forget, the utu has and continues to cost the conductors on the
northern region approximately 20 thousand a year for the last 7
years..that's right, what could we do with an extra 140 k right now? 
And all for what ....a seniority move every 2 weeks.  And all the while
the southern region conductors get to bid a move every week, stock award
if they stay available, bonus like the engineers, and 401k match. Oh but
we wanted to be able to get our buddies to bump us so we could ride it
out 48 hours....oh wait..can't even do that without the company
charging us, thanks utu

I have consistently dogged out our unions since I started at CSX and
have done so openly. On several occasions, these pro union guys in the
locker rooms have told me that 
"you know if it weren't for the union"....
1. We would be called to work and they could make us do whatever they
want.
2. We wouldn't make the money we do, or even get decent pay raises.
3. They could hold us over for 12 hours and not give you an option or
another ticket.
4. They could fire anyone of us just because they want to.
5. They could combine the work of several jobs and put it on one crew
so they could cut jobs off.
6. They could get rid of weekend off days
7. They could generally make life miserable for us any way they wanted
to.

Well there is more but here is a good start if anyone else wants to add
on here.

Corresponding examples for each:
1. Y134 in the job description says 1st shift pulling job. Oh we need
you to go work this industry because Y138 layed off and we can't fill
it. Oh yeah and bleed off the 28 cars you brought back so we don't
have to give it to the carman.
2. Decent pay means I should be able work 40+ hours a week and
comfortably support my family. This last pay raise was a joke, my cost
of living went up more in the last 2 years than my raises.
3. I sure thought there was a protocol for such situations, but if
there is no relief for your job you are staying.
4. They sure have been targeting individuals in the past 6 months or
so.
5. Look how many jobs have been combined and how many jobs have been
cut off.
6. Weekend off days? There might be 3-5 jobs per terminal with weekends
off, guess who gets those and guess how long you will have to be here to
get it.
7. It has become more and more miserable and it will get worse. 

Bonus item: The Crew Attendance Point System sucks 
Extra bonus item: The Daily Vacation and Personal Leave days caps can
and do get manipulated, it's bad enough now that guys end up carrying
over days not because they want to save them but because they can't
use them.
Last bonus item: Where did demand days for conductors go? Thanks Union

Final thought: Thank you union,I am so glad to know that we pay our
dues and you have our backs when we need you! You are worthless and
need to earn your checks. We don't pay you to get in bed with the
company! We know the company pays you better than we do but what we do
pay we should something out of it! You are a joke!!

Our only hope is to make the news with something big, we can shut this
country down within a few days, especially this time of year!

CSX LAWYERS

HEY YOU!!!!   YEAH CSX LAWYERS!  While your reading this you better
plan on making some calls to your safety directors and make plans to
help out these idiotic Chiefs who cant seem to get it through their
thick skulls that just because an Engineer has an engine equipped with
PTC that doesn't mean he can run on territory he is not qualified on.
No where in the FRA law does it state that the PTC program can be
substituted for a human pilot! The law states the pilot cant be a
member of the crew. You want to get technical I would say the PTC is a
member of the crew. It on board with them! Its got the engineers ID and
password in it! Half the chiefs working out here have been dispatchers
and they should know that this shit doesn't fly. Why in the hell would
you not teach these idiots how the PTC works. It is not a DETAILED MAP
OF THE TERRITORY! It doesn't tell an engineer about the CHRACTERISTICS
OF THE TERRITORY! You cant stare at the screen like it is some kind of
camera that take clear visual pictures ahead and lets you know what is
around every corner. Does the damb thing tell you where every bridge
and gulley is when you have a flash flood warning. Does it tell you
where close clearances are when your working an industry and your
conductor is brand new and you don't know a thing about it either?
Even if it could you turn it off while switching. Im not going to even
get into the damn thing blowing at every dirt road that it shouldn't.
You need to have a staff meeting and start deciding how your going to
handle these chiefs who cop and attitude and threaten crews with
insubordination if they don't use the PTC to go on territory they
aren't authorized to go on by the FRA laws and regulations.  You
better start getting it together before ethics violations start pouring
in and endangerment charges are thrown in your lap! Time to grow up and
start teaching supervision the rules of the road. You represent a multi
million dollar company and it should be embarrassing the amount of
stupid mistakes and unprofessional decisions that are made every day.
Time to start acting like a grown up railroad!

unless it has miraculously changed very recently, RR unions have always
been very reluctant to do ANYTHING that relates to an OSHA Violation,
or ADA, EEOC, FMLA, Whistleblower, or anything that wasn't part of the
union agreement since 1880. These more recent things use big words,
require union reps that are best buds with their managerial cohorts,
etc. to perform about, and give them tools they are incapable of or
unwilling to use. The UTU? did a complaint on BN or UP about GENIE some
years ago but that was very rare. No union wants a real legal
department.

DO YOUR HOMEWORK, KNOW YOUR RIGHTS, AVOID VERBAL ORDERS IN QUESTIONABLE
SITUATIONS, GET IT IN WRITING, DOCUMENT EVERYTHING 
What the Carrier fears most is cross craft solidarity, what they fear
next is a knowlageable employee. FRA Good Faith Challenges (49 CFR,214
subpart C & 218.97) gives you the right by federal law, to challenge a
directive to violate ANY FRA law. This is SUPPOSED to be a topic
trained yearly by the carrier. And if you are retaliated by the carrier
for exercising your rights, you have the OSHA FRSA Whistleblower
Protection Act to cover you. Lots of Bad Order wheels on cars and locos
that could lead to derailment getting looked over these days, let alone
the countless FRA violations on ALL equipment on the line of road at
present. How many shops and service centers closed in the last 9
months??? Write it up, put it out of service, protect yourself, your
fellow railroaders and the community.

Anyone hear the rumor that the Louisville Osborn Yard is very close to
becoming a run through yard? The few industries around that dump do not
bring enough revenue in so it probably won't be long. Better get your
seniority started at Ford or UPS before everyone else does!
