his boss made racial remarks about his culture and race in front of
company officials and peers  he called CSX-HR and begged Terri Shray
and Melloti for a transfer because he wanted his tribe/ family at home
to be proud of him HR  let him remain there after reporting
discrimination his boss in turn retaliated on him and every time they
had a derailment  they would call him last 2 or 3hrs later he sent a
voice recording of the violence in the work place and the remarks his
boss made to him in front of people he was suppose to be managing this
Indian guy done everything he could for CSX  and he ended up having a
nervous breakdown CSX done nothing to help this minority get the
training he deserved does anyone on here know how to get in touch with
him. I would love to speak to him. Diversity my ass people make the
difference wrong How tomorrow moves need to worry about today

Old retires who worked under HH have constantly posted how managers
were are forced to work the union brothers jobs because of shortages.
Let me assure you, this is not Canada and if HH thinks our unions are
that easily busted he is in for a surprise. Once again as it has been
posted on here before, if you witness any supervisor doing the work of
any union member REPORT IT IMMEDIATELY.  File a claim and report it to
your LC immediately. This is one of the highest violations of our Union
agreements and will not be tolerated. This claim has been paid in the
past several times and the Managers were punished accordingly. This
will not be tolerated!

Is doubtful if other RR heads have a whole lot of faith in or respect
Harrison much, if at all.  Been making shareholders happier - at least
somewhat, so far.  Someone will inherit\take over the business, rail
shipment traffic that the csx now doesn't seem to want.  Maybe the
other rail companies are just fine with what's happening at csx. Been
posted on this particular website many times: the big shots plan things
(or are supposed to) for years - the employees & their unions usually
have to play catch-up. Only time will tell.....

will the rest of the railroads follow harrison's lead or sit back and
laugh as he destroys csx? 

when hunter harrison moves on in a couple years from old age, how long
will it take the employees of csx to recover from the mayhem he caused?
 or will csx ever recover?   

and will the harrison family name be forever associated with other
names such as bernard madoff and enron?

i personally think he's a great guy, and i wish i could buy him a

Did any body check their time tickets early this morning and discover
that every single one of them that were already reported had all the
information on them deleted. Everyone one for the last 35 days. Said
system error in upper left hand corner of screen. Legal posted that
info that was already reported and stored wasn't supposed to modified
once it was. How did the system make all the info of all our tickets
disappear??? Funny how this happened after someone posted about info
being hidden or missing from a lot of recrew tickets. Other guys looked
at theirs too and the info was gone. Something smells rotten.

I agree with Conductor 30+. Keep bombarding payroll with penalty claims
and keep a copy to submit to the LC after it's rejected by CSX. We did
that for decades. People need to learn how the system works. I've heard
people complain they were shorted on a half. It turns out it was a
penalty claim that wasn't paid. That's the way it's been forever.
It's one big game "us vs them". Every railroad banks on 85%-90% of
all denied penalty claims to not be submit to the LC then the GC for
further handling. I would write them up with half of it filler words
just to make payroll scratch their heads. Pulling up a printout for the
half at times I had claims I couldn't remember from 7 years ago. FRA
isn't going to do anything. It's a waste of time.

Give the system a few more days to generate that ticket so that you can
print it. Try as much as you can. Go into work if it isn't too much
trouble and try. Call the chessie help desk. If they cant give you a
solution, HELL YES call the fra hours of service director and tell him
you think you have a ticket out there in limbo and the company may have
not reported your hours to them. If they are hiding it after it is
reported then they will find out. Keep at it. Don't let it go. You
have to report your hours of service. That is federal law and if it
isn't being done properly you need to let someone know. Don't get
beat down like the last guy who posted. They whip and beat and cheat so
much it finally wears people down and they just give up and don't put
in claims or speak up. That's what they want. That's what they are
counting on. That's the difference between being represented by a
union and not an outside contract. If they did this crap to a private
contractor they would have their asses in court for breach of contract.
We have a thousand hoops to jump and red tape. 

1-317-226-0390 is the number to the Indianapolis FRA office if you are
in Great Lakes division. If not they will give you the right number and
should give you the number of the Hours of Service agent in Washington

Ah, c'mon. If you've been around a little while you should know how it
is:  The co. violates Contractual Agreements constantly. The recourse is
to submit penalty claims.  Employee history is something
at least.  The real reason for penalty claims is to make 'em ante up -
stop the practice of whatever. Hit 'em with extra expense(s). Bear in
mind that if you work at/in a terminal where many claims are put in,
multiply that by each & every terminal on the system - payroll sees a
lot.  Go ahead if you wish, waste your time with the FRA.

What the hell is going on here. Its bad enough we get our valid claim
denied after being forced to do work in violation of our union
agreement which I might add was signed by CSX and agreed upon, but now
all the sudden we are having problems with getting information to prove
these claims. I have noticed that most the time it is when you recrew a
train. Every time you activate your bulletins the TMCI screen is
supposed to reflect that you were the second crew on that train. My LC
has asked me to give him a copy of this as more proof I was on that
train and lately the info has been missing. Sometimes I cant print a
ticket when I recrew a train because the computer says there isn't any
info for the date of the ticket. How the hell can there not be any info
for a ticket you just submitted. I have even waited a few days to see
if maybe it was just not going through yet. Only proof I got that I was
called for that train is in my history. That isn't shit.  That ticket
has FRA hos reporting info. Do I have to call the FRA and ask them to
get that ticket now. That's what legal posted. Maybe they should be
looking into this pattern that's happening with recrewing trains!

Karma is right. Its not just one supervisor doing either. They are
using radar guns. If anyone has any training in law enforcement or has
dealt with this after getting a speeding ticket, you can demand to see
when the device was last calibrated and who did it and if it was done
by a trained qualified technician. Yeah its just csx but a judge would
see in your favor. Wonder were they are getting their equipment and who
is keeping it legal. They will down load the engines and use the info
from that to use against you. that will be harder to beat but if the
engineer is doing his job and telling you when your traveling 4 mph
they cant do a thing to you. Don't get off unless the engineer tell
you when he is down to 4mph. 

Another thing you should know. The hours of service notice for
reporting that came out was mainly because the fra wants to know how
long the crews are sitting on engines after they are outlawed. If you
read near the end of the notice you will see that it addresses the
situation when they forget to call someone to get you or basically
within a reasonable time.  When this happens it is considered
co-mingled service and it is the same as being on duty for the
How many times has this happened to you? Its happened to me so many
times its not even laughable anymore. You are to report this as your
time on duty when reporting your time relieved. Because of this there
have been supervisors warning crews that if you don't report to the
dispatcher when you have 3 hours left to work they are going to charge
you. This is a retaliation tactic. PLAIN AND SIMPLE FACT!!! The
dispatchers know and should know where there crews are and how much
time they have to  work. Its is their responsibility to do a job
briefing with the next dispatcher who comes on duty. If they fail to do
so or do a thorough one that is not the crews fault but they are going
to hang it on the crews if you DARE TO REPORT WAITING ON A RIDE!
Make sure you notify the dispatcher. Don't delay.

You boys and Gals watch your speed when mounting and dismounting moving
equipment. A CSX Manager on the Great Lakes Division is charging people
for mounting/dismounting more than 4 mph. Pure Chickenshit.

Anyone heard that the great idea of precision railroading is an illegal
scam? The idea revolves around pushing the switching work out on the
main line and then not properly air brake testing trains while every
other class 1 has to . If there are two or more separate blocks of cars
to be set out or picked up the entire train needs to be retested.
Managers are designing this work, handing it out, overseeing it on the
mainline and claiming ignorance of properly arranging the required air
tests.? Itís a joke, a very illegal one at that. All of the other
carriers who are following federal requirements should be pissed that
this guy gets to do this and post lower operating numbers because of
illegal activity. He is also creating an unfair market place for his
competitors while they adhere to federal requirements and he does not.
The management is responsible when they design work that they also
require the proper air test be done. They are not . They are also
banking on the opposite.

Dear Monitor,

The Chief doesn't update train schedules. The computer does that or
Jax not closing out old profiles. Only trains ordered to be called by
the chief show in ur lineups as ordered. And they don't have
machines to leave a message. Lol.

JAX being net ops, NOT crew management.  Callers can go in and
"delete" anything from the line up but if its still a profiled train
the system will regenerate it automatically; no matter how many times
its deleted.  The train must be annulled for it to drop from the line
up I believe.  Crew cannot annul any trains, only call with the
authorizations given on a train. Some- not all callers should be able
to explain this.  Many new callers with minimal training working at
Crew now, so answers may vary depending on your caller

How much money did csx waste building north baltimore..... $175
million,...hunters 300 million dollars to run the railroad (that
includes hunters cp buyout..... $84 million) plus let's say another 25
million (conservertly) to hire all of his ex cn Minions plus buy outs
for ex csx managers and bosses (Michael ward). 500 million dollars.....

your greed got you hunter harrison  (after 9 months he shaved off 9
tenths of 1 point off the operating ratio..... buy the way Jim squires
of the NS got there operating ratio lower then csx's already) and your

All buffalos frontier yard switching jobs (used to be 6 now down to 4)
are going to RCO's. I thought hunter hated RCO jobs? Gonna be fun
handling 30/35 cars at a time off 7 lead, only way you can set up a rco
zone without tying up the north yard up at bailey Avenue coming off the
Pullman. Gotta love the dumb fucks left down in Jacksonville fucking up
buffalo,one of the few yards that didn't meltdown during hunters
implementation of his precision railroading.

Stop it! Quit acting like a company mole. Leave the distraction tactics
to them. If what was posted is true then the chief dispatchers(acting)
should be notified every time there is an error on the scheduled train
line up. Just leave a message on their voice mail if they take more
than 10 minutes to answer. Its better than nothing.
