"CSX long time disgusted slave”

Very good post! I’ve said the same thing for many years. Remember,
politicians all fly, using the US airline system. They would never
allow the FAA to have one pilot in the cockpit. Remember, AMTRAK is
the
one who started this “engineer only.” It was never this way in the
past.
These are not street cars that are being operated by one
person/engineer. You can blame the Unions for the crazy attendace
policy, they’ve allowed it. If the CSX had their way, you would be
back
to the 16 hour, law with no days
off.__________________________________

Just had to comment on the above post from CSX slave.
1 All politicians do not fly the US airline system.
2 FAA does allow pilot only on some aircraft.
3 Correct engineer only was after AMTRAK took over.
4 street cars for the most part,,, but not all had a Conductor.
5 Blame the crews for seeking and obtaining the guaranteed day.
6 the 16 hour day/ 100 mile day as standard with layoff anytime was
 sweet son.

Just saying
GOOBER

HEADS UP AVON!!!


MUNOZ AND SANBORN ARE SUPPOSED TO BE IN AVON ON THE 27th. IF THEY HAVE
THE GUTS TO ACTUALLY HAVE A SIT DOWN WITH THE CREWS, DO NOT FORGET TO
POINT OUT THE SCREWING THAT IS BEING GIVEN TO THE WEST END CREWS. THE
CREWS WHO ARE BEING FORCED TO WORK OVER 10 MILES OUT OF THEIR
ADVERTISED JOB LIMITS. THE CREWS WHO ARE ON THE ROAD ALL DAMN DAY AND
AWAY FROM HOME AND THEN  HAVE TO COME HOME AND HOSTLE TRAINS FOR THE
REMOTES IN THE YARDS BECAUSE THEY CANT GO OUT OF THE YARD AREA. AND WE
SAY YARD AREA BECAUSE THE MANAGERS IN INDY CALL IT ALL TERMINAL LIMITS.
THEY ARE TRYING TO BLANKET THE ENTIRE INDIANAPOLIS AREA UNDER TERMINAL
LIMITS SO THEY CAN MAKE ALL ROAD CREWS TRAVEL TO THE OLD TRANSFER YARD
AND CRAWFORDSVILLE LINE TO SET OFF BLOCKS OF ROAD TRAINS AND SAY THEY
ARE IN THEIR RIGHTS TO DO SO BECAUSE THE CREWS ARE ASSIGNED TO DELIVER
TRAINS WITHIN THE TERMINAL LIMITS. THE TRIP RATES ARE SET. YOUR
DESIGNATED TERRITORY ON JOB ASSIGNMENTS ARE SET.  THEY ARE RAPING OUR
AGREEMENT AND THE UNION IS SITTING ON ITS ASS RIGHT NOW AS WE SPEAK AND
NOT DOING ANYTHING ABOUT IT. THE CREWS ARE DOING 200 MILES OF WORK ON
180 MILES OF PAY. THEY ARE USING US AND REFUSING FAIR PAY FOR OUR
LABOR! ITS ONLY GOING TO GET WORSE!
ASK THESE TWO HOW THEY CAN WORK THE CREWS LIKE DOGS, BABY THE REMOTES
AND RAPE OUT AGREEMENT AND FEEL GOOD ABOUT THEMSELVES. ASK THEM HOW CAN
THEY SIGN AN AGREEMENT AND THEN RENEGE ON EVERYTHING THEY SIGNED. ITS
GETTING REAL BAD OUT HERE PEOPLE AND YOU BETTER WAKE UP SOON. OUR UNION
IS JUST ABOUT GONE RIGHT ALONG WITH OUR UNION DUES AND THE COMPANY MAN
KNOWS IT. THEY HAVE BEEN CHIPPING AWAY AT OUR RIGHTS AND HAVE GOTTEN
AWAY WITH IT. BETTER WAKE UP!
THIS IS NO JOKE. YOU LIKE THROWING YOU MONEY IN THE SHITTER JUST TO
WATCH IT BE FLUSHED THEN GO AHEAD AND SIT ON YOUR BUTTS AND WATCH THE
WATER FLUSH! YOU BETTER START TALKING TO YOUR BUDDIES IN THE STEAL
WORKERS UNIONS AND SEE JUST HOW "SMART" THEY REALLY ARE. FIND OUT HOW
THEIR BOYS HANDLE THIS KIND OF ABUSE BY MANAGEMENT!

Investigative Reporter is a troll!

His comment doesn't even make sense. As If the Engineer would/could
make  a name for himself by what? Being reckless? Stupid? As others
have said don't jump to conclusions. If he can't remember what
happened its probably because he microsleeped. An unfortunate
consequence of sleep deprivation. Which is an all too common problem in
this industry. An industry that had the benefit of a work force that
commonly had people willingly working 80 hours a week (greed factor)for
decades. But that wasn't good enough for the greedy basterds in charge.
They had to make medieval attendance policies to close any gaps where a
guy could mark off when he had enough, and needed a day or two to
recoup, and get rested or just plain caught up with the personal
necessities of life (you know, food shopping, laundry, etc.etc.) then
there's the issue of 1 man in the cab. The fact that this has gone on
for so long without the Public and Unions demanding an immediate end to
this insanely dangerous policy is mind boggling. Just think how that
would play out in the Airline Industry if they had 1 man flight crews.
And every 6/8 months a plane fell out of the sky killing everyone on
board. Because the pilot had some sort of health failure/lapse, and the
computer just didn't quite get the job done in his absence.

Amtrak wreck:

The young engineer was going twice the allowable speed and was
obviously trying to make a name for himself!

The feds have been pondering the idea of completely isolating train
crews from management for better oversight.

The German Pilot Effect (copy cat crime) maybe?

New inexperienced conductors , manpower shortages, overworked and
fatigued employees are all a recipe for accidents and injuries. I guess
they don’t teach that in the MBA schools.

SP/UP

When you have a company that has thousands upon thousands invested in a
training school that receives  government grants to help train their
employees and high overhead cost on top of that, you get a demand for
turnover. You cant let a school sit empty. The seats have to be filled.
So there you have it.  BIG OVER INFLATED SCHOOL THAT COST THE CSX STOCK
HOLDERS AND INVESTORS THOUSANDS. None of this would have had to happen
if they had kept the promises they made when their new employees were
paying for their own training and lodging. False advertising of pay and
employment created law suits and thus the birth of the training center!
So slash slash....suspend suspend.....fail fail..... and keep manpower
shortages high!

I occasionally troll this website and a few other rail blogs. I have a
question for someone here that works or has been in management for the
CSX. Does the company’s efficiency testing and discipline come from the
Jacksonville corporate office, division or terminal superintend/manager?
I’m asking this as a  Southern Pacific/Union Pacific employee. Now, on
the Ole SP, if you basically did your job, you were left alone. If you
walked around the end of a standing car 15 feet instead of 20, no big
deal. But, if you were a “dynamiter,” the local officers were going to
bird dog you. Need I explain? Now,in 1997, when the UP took over,
things got really bad. Overnight, they wanted things done the "UP
Way.” I thought this was a “merger.” Well, we did it the UP way and
some of you older rails will remember, it was a  total melt down. But,
in all fairness to the Union Pacific, CSX makes the Union Pacific look
like Mother Teresa. All railroads are strict...and for good reasons.
But it would seem, the CSX goes out of their way to fire people for
J-walking. I mean, even on the UP, you really have to screw up to get
time off. It doesn’t seem to be that situation with the CSX. So, is
this “extreme" discipline local to high up? And, from what I read here
and have been told, I do mean “extreme." I can’t speak for NS or KCS,
but I can for SP, UP and BNSF. Believe me, CSX compared to those three
is extreme. Maybe management could glean something from the other
railroads. The Japanese philosophy is “a happy employee is a productive
employee.” I don’t think CSX Management feels that way. Or, do they even
care?  Even on the UP, there was some company pride, will all their
steam engines, etc. That pride seems to be lacking on the CSX. Maybe
they don’t feel it’s important.

Your either a TM/RDF or a T&E employee who is close to home on the so
called current events. Now, since you seem to be in the know, have you
been keeping up on the related current events for the last 6 months?
What is you angle here and your purpose. If you are a decent supervisor
I would think you wouldn't want anyone out there giving your "kind" a
bad name. But then a really bad unethical supervisor does make others
look better than they are. 
If your in the T&E craft why would you care. If your nose is clean and
you follow ALL THE RULES 100%(which I highly doubt)then you have
nothing to worry about, maybe, unless your number is up. So why the
comments and why are you edging towards trying to front someone out. Is
something hitting home with you? Maybe getting a little uncomfortable in
the seat?

I find it quite amusing to watch 1 person to make numerous posts under
different names. Not to hard to figure out who's making these posts
based on the chain of events lately.  Very unfortunate u are unwilling

SPOKEN LIKE TRUE MANAGEMENT.  Yeah sure they can cross lines if they
want but they don't need too unless they are following crews from
their divisions working in areas assigned to them. The only time the
great lakes stupidvisors go to the Chicago division is when they are
stalking that divisions crews. Its a proven fact. Their repeat behavior
speaks for itself. Everyone knows the two divisions hate each other.
They trade their idiots off left and right. Its like stabbing each
other in the back! One gets real mad then they send their idiot over! 
Look at the transfers over the years. Started with rick reed after his
idiotic decisions almost killed a road crew. It will never stop. Rumors
have it that some are transferred to act as moles for the other side.
JUST A BUNCH OF IMMATURE CHILDREN.  OH, by the way it is a fact that
failures are mandatory. Trainmasters have come and gone over the last
25 years and SEVERAL WHO QUIT admitted they were told if they didn't
get their failure rates up they needed to consider moving to another
craft. A few said they were leaving because they couldn't do what
Jacksonville was expecting them to do. Being deliberately evil wasn't
in their blood. A few were just throwing names in a hat and drawing one
each day so they would feel like they were being fair before they went
out in the field and handed out failures. This is the kind of crap that
makes monsters out there. The supervisor who will do anything including
lie through his teeth to get the gold star from Jacksonville for
getting his failures.  If you have been around long enough and paid
attention then you should remember the old southern training program
that came out 9 years ago. The one that a whistleblower in management
circulated. The one that gave step by step instructions on how to stalk
and target your so called "PROBLEM" employees. The one Ward claimed he
didn't know anything about. The one that instructed supervisors to call
all other division and warn them that their target was headed their
direction and to get ready for them.  GUESS WHAT!  It may not be handed
out in their training program anymore but its still going on. So yeah,
let them cross where they are not needed. Let the childish game
continue. If your a manager you may not be around that long ..... but
then if you suck up long enough(upper management really hates a suck
up) and they want to use you like a bit.... you might!

I was removed from service witout cause. Until a week later when they
found a fb video I posted. Then That gave them reason to reject my
application. Matt Masterson / Trainmaster is the first person that
should've lost his job for harrasing, and bullying people he just
doesn't like until he chases them out of their hard earned job.

Watchdog 
sorry but it won't do any good to key your radio mic if your fellow
crew member is the only one in hearing distance. Not all divisions
record all radio traffic either. The Chicago division is an example of
one who doesn't record in all areas. The crews are not protected. The
supervisors know this and have even been reported as gloating about it.
They know it is your word against theirs. This is a topic of hot
discussion with the unions. Hopefully there will be a change soon. This
won't prevent the mentally challenged supervisor from fabricating false
charges but it is a step towards better protection. If upper management
didn't demand mandatory failures this whole mess wouldn't exist but
they do so until our unions can put a  protection plan in place that
works do whatever it takes to protect yourself and your job.

Pay attention!!!    

GLDV! Due to the extensive testing that is being done on supervisors
this month it has been brought to our attention that some supervisors
are going to the extreme. One tm in particular on the west side is
going to far. This would be one by the name of Edwards. It is being
reported he is obsessed with busting crews with the 25 foot rule. Make
sure you are no closer than 50 feet at all times. Without video
protection you have no way of protecting yourself from trumped up
charges.  

What is more disturbing is this supervisor was recently heard telling a
crew member that he had been following is that he was .."THE HARDEST
CONDUCTOR TO GET"!
this comment is not only unethical and unprofessional but borders
admission of deliberately stalking crews to hand out failure charges.
Do not give him any room to wiggle in. If he approaches you make sure
you have another crew member present during all conversations. If
necessary key your radio mic as a source of protection. If you are
wrongfully accused or verbally intimidated immediately notify the
ethics department. There is no place in the company for a supervisor
with this kind of malicious intent!
