Screwed

No one seems to be able to find the so called order from Harrison
either. Several Trainmasters and Road foreman have been cornered and
asked to produce a copy of it and they don't have a clue where to find
it either. No one can positively say when they saw it or who actually
circulated it.  It may have been something that came out as a system
wide order but it IS NOT a system bulletin or notice. As for the
Unions, they were not approached about the changes in working
conditions and are not aware that this is a closed order. Some one
started this and now no one wants to take responsibility for it. Once
again CSX has managed to put something out there that was not addressed
legally with the Unions. As for road crews being used as J Jobs when
coming out of the hotel, they shouldn't be!  All crews that recrew
outlawed trains should be given tickets related to the train and the
job symbol should be followed with an R. Example would be if you were
to recrew a Q53815 your ticket should be issued as a Q53815R. The
chiefs are using road crews as road switchers to recrews HOS trains
because of a loophole in an article in the BLET agreement, There are 2
conflicting article in the agreement that are causing all this trouble.
One of these article is #50.  You will have to bombard your General
chairman with complaints and demand that the article be reviewed and al
loopholes removed.  In the meantime, the extra boards should be the only
crews given a ticket that is classified as a J JOB! Rumors have it that
Harrison hates J JOBS and recrewing.  Maybe you will get lucky and he
will put a stop to this. The only crews that could possibly be
instructed to stay on duty no less than 8 hours are assigned yard jobs
that have on duty and off duty times of 8 hours or locals.  NO ROAD JOB
SHOULD EVER BE ORDERED TO REMAIN AT THE TERMINAL AFTER BEING AWAY AT THE
HOTEL AND ARRIVING HOME JUST TO MAKE SURE THEY WERE ON DUTY 8 HOURS. 
DOESNT MATTER IF THE CHIEF MAKES THEM A J JOB OR NOT!  The crews have
been away from home and their families and deserve to be able to go
home upon arrival.  If this happens to you again, call your general
chairmans office and file a complaint. Demand that the so called order
be produced and start a petition if it isn't. Doesn't matter if it is
produced anyway. No road crew should be held when they get home.
