Harassment and Discrimination Racial Sexual Religious

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.

FTW,
Yeah, happens all the time. 

Each situation is different. Again, document/keep records.

The worker/union side does win the vast majority of cases that have to
go to arbitration.  Csx piddles away too much money\recourses &  loses
way too often.  Sad.   Management should wise up.

East St. Louis, Roselake:

Unless you are a real jag-off\screw-up, & even if you are, that person
had no right talking to you & treating you that way.  

Sure seems there's something wrong with management in E. St. Louis.

Sad.   Where in hell are the real brains of this company?

Ethics is just more co. BS rhetoric. Calls/complaints to the ethics
hotline are recorded by an outfit that is sub-contracted. However, if
you all would just bombard them with calls & also blast 'em with
unsafe condition reports, csx would have to do something.  

Keep records. Write things down. That's for your own best interest.
There is no substantiation without documentation.

I just want to say that Rose lake yard is very impressive. The things
that impress me if how stupid Aleek and his little want to be
trainmasters are. If I was a customer of CSX I would take my business
else where. I know my job relies on customers but I can make way more
money on other railroads and I wouldn't have to be harassed like Rose
lake Managers do...
  I was taking a number 2 and Trainmaster Williams came into the
bathroom telling me he needed me and "I needed to cut it off!" I said
please can I have some privacy please. He then preceded to tell me he
has the authority to fire me for subornation." Because I wasn't
following the instruction of a superior." So I cut it off asap and
then went into his office and then he told me he needed to talk to me
about how he didn't care for my attitude in the bathroom. I explained
how I was sorry that he thought I had an attitude and I wasn't trying
to sound that way. He told me " really I should just shut the fuck and
see what I get for the disrespect of a former US Marine"....I cant
believe how crazy he went on me and really it freaked me out how he is
almost after me. This isn't ok and I shouldn't have to deal with this
at my workplace. I have enough to worry about with safety at work....I
shouldn't have to worry about my Trainmaster freaking me out and
making me feel unsafe ...mentally and physically
  Customers should be the ones thanking us for what we have to deal
with everyday!

Well, Half of that is right. First off it was West Colton, California
and that is where all the "Ex- Cons, Child Molestors worked and had
Criminal convictions for such. There was a RFE named "LINDA" and it
was actually a male- SP officer who liked to dress up like a female and
suck off Trainmen and Engine men. Her queer side kick was a
RFE named "Lester Sack" and he was a RFE out of Bakersfield and they
used to hide in the bushes and "TEST" crews and get info from SP
company suck asses and RAIL BUFFS that worked for SP and give and DO
bad Crew testing. The whole LA division is a fruit cake and nut ball
wonderland. UP stills has a bunch of them up in Bakersfield and they
are part of the good ole boy queer element. Suck off on the UP to get
and keep a job.

Conductor 1-10

The favorites game has been going on for ever. All you can do is watch
the boards really close. You will figure out who gets calls out of
line. Extra board guys will get run around for good paying jobs to be
saved for dog catching and other crap jobs when a good train is
scheduled and an old head is line second out. They claim they have the
right to hold them and not use them.  All you can do is put in a run
around claim for wages lost because they gave an old head a good long
pool run and gave the extra board guy who was rested and available
first out a basic day pud job. The union agreements have always said in
black and white the company will keep enough men on the extra boards to
cover anticipated shortages in man power. You can count on the guys who
always suck up to the crew callers and take every thing they call them
for get set up for jobs they want. Watch how they will hold certain
trains until certain people are rested. You will figure out soon enough
who the company sucks are. Life of the railroad!

For The Retired SP Engineer...

That terminal in Riverside California, why was there so much
malfeasance going in that terminal? One senior manager was caught in a
love triangle with his secretary and a junior manager...another one got
got hiding injury claims...another used corporate funds to get a sex
change operation...another one got caught having oral sex with a rank
and file employee while on duty...and a large number of managers hangs
out at a Bi-Swingers Club just north of the terminal in order to get
initiated into management!

I have no idea why this shit company has a bidding system they don't
use it like its should be used they just put people where they want
them, then deny their claim for being run around when all you have to
do to hold a job that you want is payoff Bradford in crew management
cause we have seen he sure doesn't know how to do his job or he failed
basic math, if I knew that being stupid was in his job description I'd
act like a retard and apply for his job.

Lower management positions are a waste of potential company profits.
These clowns are falling over each other and they don't know their
head from their ass.. !!!!!!  T/E management is one big joke. Many
managers have been caught stealing from the company like using the CLC
cards and the pro cards for personal use.. To many chiefs an not enough
Indians ..  These bad attitude mangers are what gives management a bad
name. I hold the company responsible because they know about those
losers and doing NOTHING about it.  As a share holder I'm very unhappy
with the  performance of upper management with the lower level
management.

Name: New Hire that Declined
E-mail: 
Employed as: Conductor, for N/A
Posted: 08 March 2015

This site has been running for many years so it has had a cumulative
effect I believe...

I am an individual who jumped through every hoop to land a position
with CSX. I did all the tests then was faced with the realization after
all the trouble I went to to prove to CSX I was worthy that CSX was
not.

Because I had other offers from other companies even though I had set
my first choice of a career to be CSX I had to reconsider my other
options after I learned more.

No one was more disappointed by this than myself as the amount of
bullshit you would have to heap onto a job driving trains to make it
some thing no one with options wants to do is mind boggling.

The reason you likely are faced with a problem of new hires that have
no clue what is going on could very well be a self fulfilling prophecy
that both employees and management are to blame for.

Every qualified candidate that really had the ability to make an
informed opinion already passed on your company. There is a pretty
strong possibility the majority of them easily found this site and
others like it when conducting their own background check while vetting
CSX.

What you now have are candidates who look good on paper but unlikely
were the type that make the effort to look into the environment they
are entering with an unbiased point of view and actually make an
informed opinion of what are the actual state of working conditions,
moral, job satisfaction and union effectiveness.

The most damning opinions did not come from this board ironically but
from the employees conducting the hiring interviews and their honesty
about what they look forward to most in their CSX career...

Retirement.

And these were the guys that managed to succeed in this environment and
advance in position to non T&E jobs... even they are only in it for the
money and can't wait for the ride to end.

Don't read this as a slight to them the did a good job.
However the factual and anecdotal argument against them presented to
candidates looking for confirmation of their level of job satisfaction
even though they are putting on their happy face through the process...
well they already were fighting uphill and it is likely a lot of
candidates wanting to be convinced that CSX is a company they want to
work at will be looking for their insights in unguarded moments.

They alone did not break the camels back.

watching an individual that posts youtube videos from their excitement
of being selected, finishing training then starting their job the
transformation in demeanor is striking.

this individual begins to look increasingly tired and disillusioned
with their career choice right up to the point the youtube videos
simply stop being uploaded. search the internet you will find this
exhausted demeanor on so many of the crews faces and you even arrive at
the FRA run website dedicated to justifying unsavory 24/7 crew calling
practices.

Even enjoyable jobs are not enjoyable when you are not given a chance
for uninterrupted sleep at 24 hour intervals. Whats worse is in
transportation it is downright dangerous.

All claims of safety ring hollow when faced with the actual new hire
conditions of being stuck on an extra board for years and having no
100% guaranteed way to get the rest you need when being on call 24/7.
It is unsafe and everyone knows it

It has not changed because it is motivated by greed on all sides of the
company from employees/unions to management to the top brass.

The irony is everyone would have more job satisfaction and the company
would have a lot less accidents if they doubled the labor pools and cut
the 24/7 on call in half and stopped paying people to be on the clock
for 24 hours a day while sitting at home waiting for a telephone call.

Cut that nonsense in half on both sides. Half the current on call pay
and half the current hours when on call would be a start. 

If you need people to crew trains on standby put them on call for 12
hours then let the bastards go to sleep and don't pay the greedy
buggers 24 hours a day.

You might argue this would cause a strike and the extra board would
starve... yes they might but this is a right of passage in other
industries that should have high levels of job satisfaction and the
root cause of why your industry does not. 

You all made it about the money to a point that it is a nightmare for
yourselves and everyone else. Seriously how did you guys fuck this up
so bad?

Then there are the actual reports of accidents and their causes that
simply confirm all this.

When trying to unravel most mysteries and problems so many can be
solved by following the money.

It seems the perfect storm of greed on all sides has created the
current conditions at CSX that make this company unattractive to
completely qualified candidates that would otherwise jump at the chance
to work here.

How many other qualified people has this company lost besides myself
because of these problems?
