The FMLA was for a child. It was never mentioned if this persons
medical problems were service related. It just states he was hired and
apparently he served in the military. I need to look up this stuff
about CSX getting federal funds for hiring veterans. Why is CSX being
singled out? It would apply to all employers hiring veterans. I do know
CSX has been praised for hiring veterans. What's wrong with it? You
still miss the point a new hire wanting time off. That's just wrong.
Apparently he missed the speech at orientation about what it takes to
work on the railroad. Same speech they gave in 1977 when I hired out.
Want a life forget about it. You're on call 24/7. If he hired on
thinking differently then he hired on fraudulently. My advice transfer
to another craft. People who work regularly are burnt out because of
those shirking the system.
