Strike over at CP 
You guys got fucked by your union.  Why would you go back after only
hours of a walk out? You guys had CP by the nuts and let go.

Details of the agreement are being withheld pending ratification.  This
is typical ble bullshit to.  Why the hell is information being held?  I
so sick of the union not telling us what the hell is offered.

Engineers...HEADS UP!!!

Went to the rules class about 3 weeks ago and the guy they sent from
who knows where told us to start looking on our tonnage graphs for the
restrictions on equipment that restrict it to 50 mph or less. I saw it
a few times since then. I asked him at the time if there was going to
be a bulletin out informing of this change and that the info on it
would govern the speed of our train. He said he didn't know if they
would put one out or not. So I asked him what is going to cover our
butts if the work order department screws up and misses a car or we got
wrong car wrong train crap and get busted with a 50 mph car when we
thought we could do 60. He started some crap about observing our trains
and looking for restricted cars in our trains. We all started laughing,
Asked him if he even knew how it worked in our yard. We don't see our
trains most of the time. Just the head 6 as required. We don't get our
trains ready. The car man is the only one who sees the whole train when
he watches the roll by. He couldn't answer that. We told him if we
don't see a bulletin out stating that this change was made to or
tonnage graphs and we could count on using that info to govern our
speed we were running 50. Plain and simple.
YOUR GOING TO LOVE THIS ONE!!!!   He told us to go to rule 112.4 and
read line 4.  Do you know what is says...... Hold on to your hats...

It says....The ranking crew member, which we all know is supposed to be
the conductor, is responsible for ensuring PROPER DOCUMENTATION FOR THE

He threw it right in the conductors lap! So I said, ok since Im just
the engineer and not the ranking employee then I can just take my
tonnage graph and go get on my power and the conductor can eat shit if
there is a problem with the cars. That pissed the shit out of a
conductor in the class.  The instructor finally admitted that it was
not done properly the way they started it and if we felt unsure about
anything just stick to 50mph until there is something in writing.
So this is what your dealing with. If Jacksonville screws up or the YM
has a wrong car in the train or an extra your going to eat dirt as long
as that rule 112,4 is in the book and there is not a bulletin out
instructing crews to use the info provided in the restricted car
handling area of the tonnage graph! Well, the conductor can eat dirt
because he is supposed to make sure its right per the rules!  Sucks to
be the conductor right now.

You know that it is very sad that you can't even walk into crew rooms
and talk with managers on certain issues.  Chris Guenthur was in
moncrief the other day and my conductor and I walked in there and said
hello and he wouldnt even acknowledge our presence.  You often wonder
why crews are shitty?  This is why.  Very sad

ceo's and their top brass of RailRoads make obscene amounts of money. 
A lot of their employees would have to work 3 life times to make what
they make in a year. The same managers of these RRs believe the common
employee is over paid.  When we all know Goofy or any other Disney
character could be CEO of a railroad and it would still make money. 


Put it to them. Make them pay what your worth.

FMLA Interference  that's what all of this is and it is illegal.
CSX will put out some bullshit about availability improving due to fmla
not being as badly abused but its because they have intimidated
employees to not use it. 

CSX and their managers will be paying out a lot of money to those that
were wrongfully pulled out.  The thing is CSX doesn't care to pay
hefty fines and lawsuits.  They have plenty of cash to throw around if
their objective is met.  Same with contracting out Dekra it's all a
dog and pony show and everyone knows it.

That issue has been known and practiced in this industry for as many
years as the safety programs have started. You are 100% correct. It is
just a safety net for them to use in court when someone files an injury
law suit. Not only do they use the record against the employee if they
have anything negative in it, but they use all others as well. They
will show the courts that it is an on going problem and they are unable
to stop it. The more failures they are able to show within their
workforce the better. This information has been posted on this site for
years. Nothing has changed. The question here is why have they called in
Dekra. It has nothing to do with reducing the amount of safety failures
or safety issues on the property. They want the failures. They need the
failures. Only thing they have to use as an excuse that an employee was
injured. The company needs something from Dekra. Most likely the
accredited title that come with the backing. 
If you were around many years ago then you would remember the famous
E.H Harriman ward that was given out to the railroad with the most
outstanding safety achievements.  The NS blew CSX out of the water for
years. They couldn't stand it! Drove them crazy. The bad thing was it
created a working atmosphere of intimidation and harassment and it
eventually became known across all railroads as the "HARASSMENT"
award and was done away with. Only thing it was good for was a pat on
the back and drawing in investors.
There is no doubt that CSX can use accreditation from Dekra to apply
for grants and influence the States that are involved in safety
regulations and monitoring csx railroads with the FRA. Someone posted
on here that you should not talk to anyone from Dekra if they approach
you. That would be a stupid thing to do. In fact, if they do approach
you I would not only talk to them but I would ask them what is the
purpose of their being there and question them about their company
background. I would ask them what they are looking for and if you
happen to be standing next to equipment of other issues of interest to
them that needs addressing I would be more than willing to point it out
and discuss it in detail. You may mention to them to keep your name out
of their reports if you feel that there may be retaliation down the
line for speaking up. They may or may not agree to do so but its better
to bring things to their attention while they are there then complain
after they are gone. Just make sure you don't blow things out of
proportion or stretch the truth. Be factual and only report what you
know for sure or is obviously right in front of their faces.

What the hell would they call Dekra for?  I just googled them and I
don't see the relevance of their main business having anything to do
with T&E crews dirrectly.  Just what the hell would they be looking
for? If they want to use them it is only to grab a certification from
them. Its just another way to put a notch on their belts as a safe and
reliable company. The only benefit of this would be to plaster it all
over the employee gateway and pat themselves on the back. It might help
attract a few more backers who are afraid of the history that HH created
with his numerous injuries and failure to maintain equipment and now it
is sitting in Foote's lap. I don't think they get any government
grants for this certification but I may be wrong. This is just another
business tactic that they are counting on to attract more support. We
all know how smoke and mirrors are used to fool the public into
thinking they are buying into a safe and reliable company. If Dekra is
as credible as they claim they will see through all of the bull just as
the previous poster pointed out about DuPont!

This is all about firing T&E and nothing else.  Csx doesn't give a damn
about safety. If Dekra approaches you for any info don't help those
bitches help csx fire us.

Following an initial three-month assessment beginning in June, the
DEKRA team will develop findings and recommendations. Should you be
contacted during the course of the assessment, please give your full
support and cooperation to the DEKRA team.

I know exactly what you are talking about.  I was one of those targets
they had on their list that got out and shit hit the fan. What these
stupid idiots don't understand is there is always a manager out there
that doesn't agree with the companies ethics and will let the cat out
of the bag or let everyone know what is going on. There was a bulletin
put out last year that stated NO SUPERVISOR was to give any observation
failures after the employee left the scene. They had to be present and
address the employee. There were a bunch of head hunters who needed
their failure count up and was going out and checking equipment and
saying it wasn't secured with handbrakes. They all claimed they had
witnesses but it was just another supervisor. I wish I had kept a copy
of the bulletin. I think it was actually in the notices. I would put a
million copies of it all over the system! They were told to never fail
any employee with having a direct one on one with them at the scene of
the CRIME when it supposedly happened. One smart arss supervisor stood
right in front of me and made a comment that he failed someone and the
guy was having a fit that the charge was bogus but it didn't matter
because it was the guys word against him and we all know who they are
going to side with.  I just wanted to punch his punk arss right in the
mouth. I hope this crap isn't starting again because if it does its
going to be dog eat dog. Catch one supervisor breaking a rule and Im
blowing up the ethics hot line and taking a pic if I got too!

only cancelled because they knew that there was no way the supervisors
were going to be able to meet the requirements set forth. 
Word is, from a very reliable source, that the head hunting for
failures was put back on the table and subtle threats were made. This
happened under the Tony Ingram reign of terror and any old head can
tell you what went down and how the unions did step in and take on the
company for excessive discipline charges.
In the notice it was ordered that every supervisor in T&E had to
observe/test 15 separate employees per month for the quarter. That is
45 employees for every single supervisor. They were told If a failure
is not found then they are not doing their jobs correctly. This is just
a tactic to reduce the work force as Foote has threatened without
looking like the villains by cutting more jobs and putting more people
out on the street. May also be expecting more lawsuits for injuries
from faulty equipment and improperly maintained tracks. An employee
with failures on their history never looks good in court when suing for
an injury.
Looks like someone is getting ready for round 2 of the old ballgame!
