just to clarify something for y'all T&E operating folks. I know most of
you know this, but it may help some newbies better understand.
This has to do with mainline speeds, which you have been discussing.

First off, a TT covers basically 2 components, 1. Station pages and 2.
TT Special Instructions. 

Your speeds in the TT appear on the Station Pages, and are the Maximum
allowable speeds also referred to as Normal speed. Normal speed is the
max allowable on block signal system tracks. 
Bulletin orders, current and Summary, can modify those speeds up or
down. Therefore, your Bulletin orders are more current and supercede
your TT station page listed speeds. When the new TT revision is put
out, the speeds which have been permanently modified by Bulletin
order(s) will become permanent in the TT. Then the Bulletin process
starts all over again  because speeds will change over time, higher or
lower. 
When it comes to TT Special Instructions, that is a little different. A
TT Spec Inst  is something which modifies a current Rule, because the
Rule itself does not adequately cover a specific operating condition.
TT special instructions are usually tethered to a Rule number, but adds
to the Rule because the actual operating condition does not fit the Rule
perfectly. ( this also applies to other operating conditions such as Air
Brake use)
I've been gone for a very long time but there are some things one
never forgets. 
Let me know if this made sense and if you have any questions, I'll
answer them as best I can. 
Safety is of first importance.

Engineers. 

DO NOT RUN 70 MPH IN THE ST. LOUIS LINE OUT OF INDIANAPOLIS! 
read your rules. When rules and special instructions conflict SPECIAL
INSTRUCTIONS SUPERSEDE!
Your timetable special instructions do not allow you to run 70 period!
Yes, you can run 60 with approved freight but not 70. Do not act like a
hot shot and run 70 just because you have a news bulletin that changes a
rule. You will not win the charge of speeding when you go to
investigation. This is a set up. Do not fall for it. Follow your
timetable special instructions!

Loco 

Timetable speeds on the st.Louis line out of Indy are 60/60. Therefore
we can run 60 as stated per the new speed chart on the new bulletin.
I'm hearing most timetables state the same.

Timetables and special instructions over ride bulletins. I was informed
today by management to follow your timetable instructions until the
timetables are changed or bulletins are issued with direct orders to
change your timetable specific speeds.

Red the final offer today.  All I can say is WOW.  The Engineers are
going to have pride in their job again.   There is going to be a real
pay difference between the Engineer and their sidekick and it's about
time.   

Congrats to all

Speed change

What the hell is going on with this new speed rule changes that came
out on the new bulletin. Everyone I have talked to so far is not
running 60/70.  Most are saying they don't really know whats in their
train by looking at the tonnage graph. Lumber cars, flats, bulkheads,
contents of loaded gons and who knows what else. A solid intermodal
should be no problem. Go 70. But the rest Im inclined to agree with. Is
anyone else staying at 50-60 until this gets straightened out?

LC2,

  Like I said a few days ago, there is no negotiations between the UTU
and BLe with CSX in regards to Hourly rates.  Please go somewhere else
and spread your ignorance.  Do you have something to validate your
claims? Didn't think so.

OLD HEAD GONE

AMEN brother. You couldn't have said it any better. Every topic you
touched was right on. I learned a lone time ago that its the skeletons
in the closet that get things done. Rattle some bones. File complaints
on laws that are broken. Beat them at their own game with their own
rules. They can spit on and disrespect the signed and sealed union
agreement all they want because the Unions have to sit down with them
and negotiate everything but they cant break the law! No matter how
high above it they think they are they can not. We see it out here in
the fields every day. FRA turns their heads for the right price. A
picture is worth a thousand words and the tongue is mightier than the
sword. There is nothing CSX hates worse than bad publicity. Doesn't
look good for the investors and the supporters on the employee gate
way. Today it is worse than ever. You cant blow your nose without
someone being offended or you having to apologize for it. Now is not
the time for CSX to have the spot light put on them! If the guys would
just wise up and see how much more powerful they are than the unions
they would realize what they can accomplish!

Lesson 101

The cold hard facts are as follows:

No one stands for their unions anymore. The young cubs of today come
from a different breed of Union families. They have very little
experience with them and didn't stand on the battle lines when scabs
were picketed and Union brothers stuck together to kick worthless Union
officials out of office. Todays Unions are no better than they were when
the mofia ran them. They count on everyone complaining and not doing a
thing about it. Pay them their dues and reap what you sow!

Csx has shown itself time and time again as an inept company. Putting
out bulletins just to cancel them hours after they have been published
along with not being able to get proper work orders, locate 
information on cars on line or road, not having foreign line rules
classes, not providing rules books and info in a timely manner, giving
failures on rules that aren't even in existence anymore, losing
training history of employees, failure to pay new hires on a timely
manner, misclassifying deadheads, failing to call taxi's for relief of
crews, losing trains on the GPS systems, missing paper work for RSSM
cars and the list just goes on and on and on.....This is all just a
joke of a nightmare or just one big Disneyland ride!
The only thing that keeps this company afloat is the backers. READ THE
EMPLOYEE GATEWAY!  When was the last time you took a real good look at
all the pat me on the back propaganda. Inflated stock prices and smoke
and mirror business is the only thing that keeps CSX afloat,
You want your job? You want to retire with a good check?
The only thing you can do is come to work and keep your mouth shut. If
you don't have the balls or friends to back you out here and who are
willing to make the Union International reps life miserable then you
have nothing.
You can however take care of yourself and make sure you are not the one
being set up or stalked for standing your ground! CSX is not a federally
owned company. The are regulated by the Feds but they are not owned by
them. CSX MUST FOLLOW ALL STATE AND LOCAL LAWS. CSX IS NOT EXEMPT FROM
LAWSUITS CHARGED AGAINST THEM FOR BREAKING THESE LAWS.
FRA LAWS ARE TO BE FOLLOWED. If you are being forced, intimidated or
harassed into breaking any of the stated laws you have the right to
report/whistle blow if need be.
Unfortunately there is no protection for your pay issues. Your only
recourse is to deal with your unions. Good luck with that if you are a
wimp and wont follow through on your claims. 
You can however look at what your problems are and if you are smart you
can figure out what other avenues can be used to settle your issues. 
One of my favorites was when I was denied pay for a trip the company
claimed I never did. Now this was just plain insane and it wasn't
necessary to take this to the union. After I faxed enough information
to the payroll/HR/Operations and corporate lodging it was taken care
of. Someone had a lot of egg on their face but it was paid. 
There are a lot of avenues one can take. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO USE YOUR
UNION AS THE FIRST COURSE OF ACTION IF THERE IS A PROBLEM WITHIN THE
DEPARTMENTS OF CSX. IT IS YOUR DUTY AND RESPONSIBILITY AS A STOCKHOLDER
AND EMPLOYEE OF CSX TO BRING ANY PROBLEMS FORWARD THAT YOU HAVE
ENCOUNTERED OR DISCOVERED WHILE BEING INVOLVED WITH CSX IN ANY
CAPACITY.
If you get anything out of this post, let the last paragraph be the
information that sticks in your head. You may not be able to control
the changes that are coming with job descriptions, classifications or
wages but you do have the power to protect yourself and others and work
in a safe and harassment free environment as well as a productive and
lucrative one.   
Don't be small minded. THINK OUTSIDE OF THE BOX!

LC and LC2,

   There is no Hourly rate being discussed on any CSX property right
now. I Personally called the UTU G.C. office and spoke the the 1st Vice
G.C. and he said NO. A co-worker called the BLE G.C. and they also said
no.  

   Please quit starting rumors and stirring up shit, go somewhere else
and start your rumors. If you have proof of Hourly rate negotiations by
all means post it on here and quit making an ASS of yourself drama
queen.

Trump Chimp


Once again TRUMP HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH OFFERING SIGNING BONUSES! It is
no different than the bonuses offered to engineers in the union
agreements and bonuses offered to conductors their first year for not
reporting injuries or getting a failure on their records. You know
nothing about how the railroads decide on how to recruit new hires.
Take you political agenda somewhere else. This is a csx sucks site and
not a trump chump propaganda site. 
 
Why are you distracting? What post bothered you? Could it be the one on
the new speed charts being blasted as inept and having too many gray
areas that may cause crews to be charged with speeding? Or was it the
discussions on the TO not working properly?

Make America Great Again!

Bring back the weasel Obama if you want social engineering and a PR
President!
When was the last time any railroad offered a $25K signing bonus?

The best hire for corporate America [before Trump], was an illegal with
a Green Card. Companies use that green card as a threat against
worker's rights, including injuries and organizing for better pay.

In most cases, the companies scheme with corrupt union bosses to
undermine the worker's rights!

Received a call from The GC.  Will be meeting with him and many other
LCs this week.  We will be discussing the hourly pay rate.  51.23/hr
has been negotiated.  Will post more details about the meeting the
middle of the week or when more information becomes available.

Hiring Bonuses:

Corporate America no longer recruit the undocumented and hand-out 
Green Cards like candy, in order to supplant the "true" American
workers!
So, giving the demand for workers, railroads are offering cash bonuses
for new hires.

Thanks President Trump for Making America Great Again!

Hello all you dumb ass csx employees;

We as of now need more stUPid CSX and NS employees

that have been fired or laid off to come to the UP

and work for us. We have a meltdown in service and 

need more experinced railroad employees from any where.

As of now I have 10 drug trains backed up all the way to

Mexico City and they are full of Marijuana and Crystal meth

destined for Los Angeles (LOST ANAL) that my Southern Region

Vice President of Operations, Chad Wilbourn, who is a professional

UPRR faggot has contracted with the Mexican cartels to move

this money making product for us.

We need employees for West Colton right now.

Thanks again,

Lance Fritz

ALERT!!! ATTENTION!!!

Be very careful about the way you interpret the new speed rule chart.
 
One, ask your supervisor to clarify on every train whether or not you
have stump wood in your gondolas if they show loaded. What exactly is
stump wood? Cut up railroad ties? Cleared brush? Old poles?

Second, the rule on running 50 if you have empty "Bulk head flats" is
not clarified on work orders and tonnage graphs. You have a 3 digit code
on an engineers tonnage graph that can identify that you have a flat car
but it DOES NOT IDENTIFY THE TYPE OF CAR! Anyone who delivers freight to
the UP RR from CSX knows of this problem. There are sections on the UP
that require a train that has an empty bulk head flat to run 40 mph. It
was discussed with UP management on how to handle this on their railroad
as CSX does not specify the type of car on the paperwork and crews were
speeding on their line. UP management agreed that if the information
was not provided and the crew did not see their entire train they would
not be held accountable.

Avon yard is a fine example. When outbound trains tie their power onto
their cuts it is very rare they see their entire train. Inspecting the
head six cars are expected to make sure there are no hazmats improperly
placed in the train. This was brought to the attention of two previous
superintendents and both said they would make sure it was noted on the
air slips of trains going on the UP lines but it was never done. 
To prevent any chance of having an empty bulk head flat car in your
train instead of a regular flat you must either request that the car
inspector who is doing your roll by advise you that your noted empty
flat is a bulk head or regular flat car or the conductor must inspect
the car/or cars. This will be the only way that you will be able to
protect yourself from being charged with speeding. This issue has been
on going for sometime and has yet still to be addressed properly. If
you are in doubt as the type of empty flat that you have in your train
do not leave your terminal until it has been identified!Make note also
that there is no specific reference to the speed of a regular empty
flat. As of now according to the new speed chart a non bulk head empty
flat would be considered 60 mph in the mixed freight category.
