HEALTH ALERT

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE EXPOSED TO UNSANITARY TOILETS ON YOUR ENGINES
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO REPORT THESE ISSUES TO YOUR STATE HEALTH
DEPARTMENT. EVEN THOUGH YOU WORK FOR A CLASS ONE RAILROAD WHO'S
OPERATING RULES ARE REGULATED BY A FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AGENCY, YOU ARE
ALSO A CIVILIAN. THE STATE THAT YOU LIVE IN CAN CONSIDER YOU A HEALTH
RISK TO SURROUNDING BUSINESSES AS WELL AS THE COMMUNITY IF YOU ARE ABLE
TO SPREAD CONTAMINATES FROM YOUR WORK PLACE.

WHEN YOU STEP INTO A BATHROOM ON YOUR ENGINE THAT HAS SPLASHED OUT ON
THE FLOOR DUE TO POOR MAINTANANCE OF THE UNIT YOU HAVE NOW STEPPED IN
URINE AS WELL AS FECES. WHEN YOU LEAVE THE BATHROOM AND WALK AROUND THE
CAB, YOU HAVE NOW DISTRIBUTED THE CONTAMINATES ONTO THE FLOOR. WHEN YOU
PUT YOUR GRIPS AND TRAVEL BAGS ON THE FLOOR YOU HAVE NOW EXPOSED YOUR
PERSONAL BELONGINGS TO THE CONTAMINATION. YOU CARRY THESE INTO THE
HOTELS, PTI WAGONS AND INTO YOUR OWN PERSONAL VEHICLES AS WELL INTO ANY
YARD BUILDINGS. THIS IS A VIOLATION OF STATE AND FEDERAL HEALTH LAWS. IF
YOU TAKE CHARGE OF AN ENGINE IN THIS CONDITION YOU NEED TO REPORT IT TO
YOUR SUPERVISORS AND TO THE ENGINE HOUSE FOREMAN. DO NOT....I
REPEAT....DO NOT SET YOUR BELONGINGS ON A BARE FLOOR. SET THEM ON
PLASTIC BAGS. 
RETIRED FRA IS CORRECT ABOUT FILING A COMLAINT WITH YOUR
REPRESENTATIVE, BUT YOU ALSO NEED TO LET YOUR LOCAL HEALTH DEPARTMENT
KNOW OF THE CONSTANT EXPOSURES AT WORK. YOUR FAMILY PHYSICIAN MUST KNOW
ABOUT YOUR EXPOSURES TO UNCONTAINED URINE AND POSSIBLE FECES
CONTAMINATION. YOUR DOCTOR MAY NEED THIS INFO FOR FUTURE REFERENCES IF
YOU BECOME SICK AND IT IS RELATED TO EXPOSURE TO BODILY
FLUIDS/CONTAMINATES.
IF YOU DO NOT FEEL SAFE REPORTING THIS ISSUE TO YOUR LOCAL HEALTH
DEPARTMENT, YOUR PHYSICIAN CAN FILE A REPORT FOR YOU.

I was told that CSX hired many of the former NS management people. Is
this just a rumor? If it is in fact true, itís no wonder there are so
many labor problems. Back in the 1980ís NS had to be forced to buy
toilets for their locomotives. At that time, they gave the train crews
a bag to crap in, then toss it out the window. It got so bad that local
farmers, and others, were bitching so much, NS was forced to buy
toilets.

No employee has the authority to verbally give you permission to take
or borrow anything that is railroad property. Proper protocol must be
followed, with paper documentation provided by the appropriate railroad
representative.

Apparently, receiving anything from CSX is a crime. I remain anonymous
because I don't want CSX knocking my block off.

I collect C&S stuff and had permission to get some stuff. I can't say
locations. The matter went down the shitter quit.
I got to "choose" my equipment. I brought home something "new" to
borrow (signal)for a train show and yet again, I guess that's not
acceptable. Being young-but an adult, I didn't think anything would
happen.

CSX shit down my neck. The long story short, CSX special agents got
ahold of me on my cell from Jacksonville and wrung my neck. Threatening
to "arrest" me for it. I had no intentions whatsoever to make a scene
so I listened. Most old heads would probably shoot me. JW, the VP of
engineering wants me hung up to dry, They suspended the manager I
believe and wanted to charge me for what was considered "stolen
government property". The matter was left to bake in the sun. I
didn't want to push my luck...

My uncles are employees and they had no comments lol.

Sounds like there are a lot of wothless people working for CSX. First of
all i only see through reading these post that the men and women working
for this company, are only concern about one thing, and that is
who,where are they going to get their next piece of ass!!!!!!,strip
clubs,drinking,ect!!!!.

This company only promotes the trouble makers and do nothing with the
ones that accually do what their are suppose to.

SP

YOU GOT THAT RIGHT!!! Moral at an all time low and falling, lowest
paying class 1 RR in the country, Nazi southern ruling tactics(rule
with fear and intimidation)claims to be in a class of their own,and
refuses to sdopt GCORE rules that everyone else has used for years!
Funny though how they are slowly adopting the same rules as another rr
and shadowing them under different names. Funny how they just cant beat
anyone else for top safety no matter how much money and publicity they
throw out to the public. Funny how they have the all time turn over
rate of employees. Yeap, keep stuffing those white collar board members
pockets and whip and beat the real backbone of the railroad in the
trenches. What goes around comes around.... Karma is a bitch!

ď"Keep up the good work you bunch of girls...LOL.. Make our company
growĒĒ


Thatís a strange statement. As a CSX Officer, think about it a little.
I donít see a UPRR Sucks, I donít see a BNSF or even a NS scuk.com. on
the internet. rMaybe, just mabe some at CSX should take a close look at
themselfs. We all bitched a lot at the SP and even more at the UP, but
we didnít  have the feelings many of your employees seem to have. Just
a though from a retired SP Eng and X-Company Officer..

LOCO 10-20


First lets correct your comment. The UP has had cab red zone for years.
CSX is just adopting the same procedure but calling it sterile cab to
tie it into the military process. Everything they do is geared towards
a paramilitary look to appeal to military men and women in hopes of
recruiting them to their railroad. Looks good in the investors eyes and
on the front page of the employee gateway.

The UP cab red zone rule DOES NOT ALLOW THE ENGINEER  to be on the
radio nor talk to employees in charge of work authorities when running
on approaches and more restrictive signals. In fact their engineers
never talk to the employees of work authorities. They expect their
engineers to be fully focused on running the train fulfilling their
responsibilities. With extra computer screens now stuck in their
faces(trip optimizer, smart track and soon PTC) they wont be able to
focus any time to the other side of the cab. That's why the UP is
against any one man crews. 

If the newscasters are correct about it being single track, the
question is why where they on the same track heading in different
directions, No one had said whether they were running under TWC or CTC.
All I can say is if there are two trains running on the same track
heading straight towards each other, there had to be a very serious
lack of communication between someone or faulty signal displays. This
is tragic as hell!  I just hope to god they DONT try and pin all of it
on the surviving crew. Their lives are going to be a living hell for
them for a long time. I hope they come out of this ok and not crippled
or mentally ill for the rest of their lives. 

Everyone should say a prayer for them. Even if they were not CSX crew
members, they are in the same brotherhoods(UTU/BLET) and we should not
forget one our own has fallen! Their working conditions may not be that
different than ours!

ALL CREWS GREAT LAKES


PRINT OUT YOUR TIME TICKETS BEFORE YOU BEGIN ANY JOB YOU ARE ASSIGNED.

SOME OF THE GREAT LAKES CHIEFS ARE PLAYING GAMES AND DELIBERATELY
VIOLATING THE ETHICS POLICY AND THE UNION AGREEMENTS(NOTHING NEW)

POOLS CREWS ARE BEING ASKED TO RECREW TRAINS OUTSIDE THE TERMINALS AND
OFFERED RECREW TICKETS FOR THAT PARTICULAR TRAIN. THESE JOBS ARE NOT J
JOBS THAT ARE CONSIDERED DOG CATCHING JOBS. WHEN THE TRAINMASTER ASK
YOU IF YOU WANT TO DRAG A TRAIN IN AND YOU WILL BE GIVEN A TICKET AS A
RECREW FOR THAT JOB, MAKE SURE THE TICKET IS NOT GIVEN A "J" JOB
SYMBOL. YOU SHOULD SEE THE JOB SYMBOL SUCH AS...Q12314R

IF YOU ARE GIVEN THIS TICKET, AGAIN MAKE SURE YOU HAVE COPY. SOME OF
THE CHIEFS HAVE BEEN CHANGING THE TICKETS TO J JOBS SYMBOLS AFTER THE
CREWS ARE ALREADY ON THE TRAIN AND PERFORMING SERVICE. WHEN YOU BRING
THE TRAIN IN THEY WILL TELL YOU THAT YOU HAVE MORE WORK TO DO THAN YOU
WERE TOLD AND YOU HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO DO THE WORK BECAUSE YOU ARE A J
JOB-DOG CATCHER. WHEN THIS HAPPENS YOU WILL HAVE COPY OF ORIGINAL TICKET
AND COPY OF THEIR ILLEGAL CHANGE. FILE CHARGES WITH THE ETHIC COMMITTEE
AND GIVE BOTH COPIES TO YOUR LC. ALSO FORWARD COPIES TO THE FRA HOURS
OF SERVICE DIRECTOR. AFTER LONG TRIPS AND YOU ARE TIRED AND HAVE BEEN
TOLD THAT YOU WILL ONLY HAVE TO PERFORM SERVICE FOR ONE MORE TRAIN THE
FRA NEEDS TO KNOW THAT YOU HAVE BEEN LIED TO AND FORCED TO DO MORE THAN
YOU WERE TOLD BY MANAGEMENT.

THERE HAVE BEEN REPORTS THAT SOME MANAGERS HAVE BEEN MAKING COMMENTS
THAT IF YOU ARE A J JOB THEY CAN DO WHAT THEY PLEASE WITH YOU AND YOU
NOW BELONG TO THEM. IF YOU HEAR THESE COMMENTS MADE YOU NEED TO FILE
ETHIC CHARGES AGAINST THESE MANAGERS. DO NOT BE AFRAID TO DO SO! IF
THERE ARE MORE WITNESSES MAKE SURE YOU LET THE ETHICS COMMITTEE KNOW
WHO ELSE WAS PRESENT. ABUSE OF CREWS IS A SERIOUS VIOLATION OF THE
ETHICS RULES SET FORTH BY MICHAEL WARD. DO NOT LET THIS GO UNREPORTED!
