All this talk from the Gossip Queens about the BLE/CSX hourly rate
negotiations.  Does anyone have a internet link, article or letter to
validate these rumors?  Didn't think so, just more B.S. rumors.

Only the BLET has reached an agreement. The not so SMART is not
negotiating. Just because they reached a deal doesn't mean it will
pass a vote. That's up to the members.

I'm just messing with you guys.  Our General Chairman are total
complete jokes, but I don't think even they would be stupid enough to
agree to anything lower than $40 per hour. Some of you guys really bit
on this one.

Give up what rights?   We don't have shit.  You best vote yes. We
can't get a better offer in this political field.  That's more money
than any of us deserve.  The GCs have went above and beyond for us.  I
think they deserve our thanks for all their sleepless nights working on
this deal.  I'm truly grateful for their leadership and all they
selflessly  do.

Just received information today 4-11-18.  The proposed hourly rate of 
$36.45/hr has been agreed upon.  There will be a vote by the membership
sometime in May.  It was a hard fought fight by  our elected
representation.  I'd like to thank each and everyone for their
determination in negotiating such a long past due hourly rate.
All union members should be proud. This is a historic victory.

Thanks, I needed another dip shit to tell me not to believe the post on
here.   I come on here and read this non-sense for deviant
entertainment purposes only.  It's mind blowing how stupid the men I
work with are. If there is ever an hourly rate and someone ends up on
the street.  BIG DEAL!!!  If I end up on the street.  BIG DEAL!!!

It wasn't a week ago someone posted how the unions put a stop to all
the hourly rate rumors.  Now it's on Foote's desk for approval. 

No one cares about the new hire getting laid off.  If we can make a
lirttle more screw them.

Oh my were to begin. I only hope other shop employees see this and
contribute. But as the lead in says, I hope my more literate and not
some of my complete idiot coworkers join in.  

1st. Field guys think we have it made. In some ways yes, we are
spoiled. We're home every night. We aren't on call. In other ways and
I hope the field guys take this to heart, we are screwed. We are stuck,
most of us cant bid out. Its like being in jail. We have 2 managers
running around watching us and nitpicking us. Please take note of this,
when we get nitpicked it really goes over and above what the situation
calls for. Example, we had a guy scratch his poor finger with a
screwdriver bit. 1st reportable injury in 25+ years. We all suffered on
account of this one dickless wonder. None of the rest of us would think
about turning in a sissy injury, but it didn't matter. Instead of
thanking the rest of us we had to sit and listen to rants. We got
useless training. We got more ranting.  

2nd. Speaking of managers. Ours has some mental health issues. No joke.
No exageration. The guy is egotistical and childish That is the good
side. The bad side? He is off the charts nuts when ever he feels any
job pressure. Temper fits have been observed. When ever a guy pisses
him off he asks the foreman all the pertinent questions trying to get
the guy with something. Our clerks have a great HR claim, if any of
them grow a set and start calling on him. 

3rd. Our material/assistant manager. This poor guy has no authority. As
a material manager he cant change pricing. He is totally dependent on
our procurement people. 2 guys, a clerk and a foreman were told to stop
contacting procurement. The reason being if they contacted them the
people in procurement would start wondering why we needed a material
manager. They were told that we had to justify our material managers

4th. Morale? The only people working in the shop that claims to love it
right now are butt sucking fakey types or complete idiots. Today is
4-10-18, in one building 3 guys are actively looking for a new company
to work for. 1 has a job offer. 2nd is applying with Norfolk Southern.
3rd could work for the Ports.

The Signal Shop is not the wonderful place the field guys immagine. Now
we have cameras, 1st was all over outside. Next we're getting cameras
inside. Couple that with managers up your A%% all the time. Some might
say, if your in your work area doing what your supposed to be doing you
don't have anything to worry about. Yeah, OK but when you have a
manager that looks for anything he can to F**ck with his employees it
doesn't matter.

The shop has become the Savannah Correctional Facility. The work
atmosphere is toxic. I used to care. Now I show up for work and watch
the clock counting down the minutes until I can go home. Each day I
come to work I wonder what kind of BS will come up before the day is
done. The foreman in one building hates his job and isnt shy about
saying it. Another foreman is retiring soon, sooner than he wanted to
earlier. God bless cameras.

UP Roseville

CSX upper management is claiming that everyone has been called back
across the system. Many chose not to come back or never returned the
calls. So how are you working with the so called cut back employees?
How about putting a list of some of their names on here. They cant
screw with you on this site and you wont get in any trouble for doing
it. We would all like to know who these guys are since no one was
supposed to be furloughed any more. How did these guy get the jobs if
they weren't furloughed? If they chose not to come back to csx they
cant be borrowed out. Are you sure they weren't offered jobs by the UP
because they were already trained and the UP saw a chance to take on
guys with previous training and bypass sending them through UP
training. A lot of unanswered questions here. If they are doing this
than I would love to sign on board as a "borrowed out" employee with
the money that you guys make. What gives with this!!! WE are so short
handed it isn't funny but yet CSX is giving you our guys and running
us ragged into the hole.  I smell a pay off!  Something is going down
between the UP and CSX!  Money is changing hands somewhere!

Crews/legal rest
 If you are at your away from home terminal and you are ordered to show
up on your rest your 10 hours rest is not being observed correctly. If a
wagon picks  you up at your hotel it normally arrives a half hour before
your ON DUTY TIME so you can stop for food. If you are ordered to show
up on your rest the wagon must be there before your legal 10 hours are
observed. You therefore are doing service for the company before your
10 hours are observed. You have every right to go to your hotel room
and sleep a full 10 hours of you legal undisturbed rest if chose to.
You are not required to give up any of your rest time early to
accomodate travel time. They tried this last year in the Chicago
division and the FRA got involved because several crew members made it
clear they would be getting in their transportation after they slept
their 10 hours. They threatened to charge them with being late. This is
bullshit and management was ordered to stop! The rules are different for
assigned locals or jobs that have designated start times  and jobs are
being held when crews worked late and they have no one on xbds to fill
the. You get a 2 hour call after you are rested. The FRA sided with us!

All union brothers 

It has been brought to the attention of the FRA as well as the
appropriate union officers that managers (chiefs, Tm's, etc.) Have
been instructing road crews at their away from home terminals to show
up at their outbound yards on their rest.
This a serious violation of the FRA LAW allowing 10 hours of
undisturbed rest. You are allowed 10 hours. PERIOD! Some in management
are arguing that it is your choice what you do during your rest period
and if you chose to come in when you are rested it is perfectly legal.
We assure you it is not perfectly legal for anyone in management to
suggest,intimidate or make anyone feel they must prepare and come to
work before they are called after rested and show up in exactly 10
hours. FRA rest IS NOT 8 FOR 10! Man power shortages and a severe
problem with trains running late has put management under the gun and
desperate to catch up. DO NOT show up on your rest. There is a proper
calling procedure and must be used.  If you are ordered by anyone in
management to show up at your home terminal or your away from home
terminal on your rest, immediately  call your FRA hours of service
officer and your operating rules officer. This can not be tolerated. 10
hours undisturbed means just that. Undisturbed with a right to report in
2 hours.

How Does a Fitness-For-Duty Certification Work in Practice?

CSX system notice does not apply to Fmla.  It would be in direct
violation of Fmla.    Can only be requested if it's a reasonable
safety concern and even then it can only be requested ever 30 days in
conjunction with a layoff. 

When an employer uses a fitness-for-duty certification as part of the
FMLA process, it is
 the responsibility of the employee to complete the certification
before being able to return to work after FMLA leave. In practice, that
means that as long as the employer has followed the regulations, the
employer has the right to deny the employee the ability to return to
work until the fitness-for-duty certification has been completed and
submitted. If an employee refuses to do so and does not request
additional FMLA leave, he or she may lose the right to job
reinstatement. (However, note that an employer cannot delay
reinstatement while awaiting clarification or authentication from the
healthcare provider.)

There are several other considerations as well:

Much like the original medical certification, the employer may only
contact the healthcare provider for clarification or authentication of
the information—NOT to obtain additional information.
Unlike the original medical certification, no second or third opinions
can be requested for fitness-for-duty certifications.
Fitness-for-duty certifications are allowed for intermittent FMLA leave
only if there are reasonable safety concerns related to the employee’s
return from each absence. Even in such cases, this certification can be
required only once every 30 days.

newest CEO.   Foote is an attorney he thinks he can manipulate the
laws.   This pos will push every law and agreement to the edge.   We
