Yes there are lots of CUCKS in the rr industry, Iím not preaching just
telling you the facts of how we dealt with the Hh regime. Overall there
is still solidarity in the industry, and they will fight back I hope the
best way they can with the tools they have. There is just to much to
lose to do nothing. And there will always be those weak CUCKS that ride
the coat tails of the solid members and enjoy benefits, from there
efforts. Itís the companies job to try and break down the member ship
one at a time.

Donít fall for a manager saying an employee is willing to do others
work. Managers like it when there is in fighting amongst union
employees. It is a diversion of the issues of what management is really
doing. Stick together and bury CSX in paper grievances and what ever
else you have in the tool box, to make members whole again from bogus
discipline and firings. Stand strong you will over come this corrupt
regime.

It might appear that people are crossing over to other crafts willingly.
Well you said if they donít they are sent home. They are under duress to
do this forced or fired.  Not willingly. It can be rectified threw the
proper channels.

The shops that are craft crossing, if I was you guys attend your next
union meeting and demand some answers on what is being done with all
these, collective agreement violations. If you do nothing about this
then the practice will continue by the company. We went threw this with
Hh and won a majority of all our cases. The union reps. Came threw for
us it took a bit of time. But the son of a bitch Hh paid up. The shares
are slowing going up so CSX is going to keep doing more of the same at
employees expense.

At the least the union should be filing grievance for the laid off
employees. If they are sitting at home and someone else is doing there
job. Anyone that is filling these positions and guys are sitting at
home for every hour of pay they are losing it should be recorded by
union rep. It is violation of the collective agreement 100 percent
winnable if goes to arbitration. We won our cases and the moneys where
split between the laid off employees and who ever else was affected by
this practice. The case is on file why is your union not addressing
this. All this is a violation of the collective agreement they are
flexing there muscles. They know they will have to pay if goes to
arbitration. Itís been won before.

because there not the ones who got laid off and are afraid for there
jobs and seem all to willing to continue they don't care as long as
they still have there jobs.

If you are force to do other crafts work put in a grievance. Rr work
under aar rules if your not trained for doing the work of others craft
it is unsafe and a violation of the collective agreement. If you do not
feel safe doing work your not trained for put in safety hazard report at
once. If they get people to do this and someone gets hurt or worse
killed , someone is going to jail. All these change the company wants
to do has to be negotiated in the next contract. You will win these
grievances if it goes to arbitration, your union should be filing
grievances every time someone  is doing other crafts work. All of
affected people should be putting in grievance every time this happens.
And safety hazard reports.

I was told by union rep that working a,craft you aren't hired for is
CO mingled service and the other craft can file claims for you doing
their work. If you do work that pays the other craft more they have to
pay you the higher rate too. I'm making sure I file on everything they
violate. Order me to do the work but you better pay me the extra.

There are aar standards which is North American wide. If they are
getting you to do work that you are not trained for it could spell
trouble if something was not done to aar rules.  If there was an
accident or injury or worse fatality. The rr is in big trouble, and the
supervisor could be criminally charged. Every time you are made to do
work that you are not trained for. Do not hesitate to put a grievance
in. For one thing it is against your collective agreement and you will
win when it goes to arbitration. Everyone should be putting  grievances
in. We did at cprail and won most of them. That has to be negotiated in
a new contract. Trust me it is a breach of your collective agreement
some supervisor are pushing there wait around, but like I said if
someone gets hurt and management knows that person was not trained for
that job, someone will pay for it. You can even put in safety hazard
report if you donít feel safe doing a job your not trained for. All of
you should be doing it every time your told to work outside your craft.
Plain and simple it is not safe, leave a paper trail on all this. They
forced over time on us and we won most grievances, guys that where
fired where reinstated with full back pay. Your union should be telling
you to do this.

I retired last year from car department. My advice take all the training
your rr company is offering. You would be surprised in other industries
how hard it is to get a lot of the certificates that are provided by
the rr companies. Like first aid, confined space training etc. Those
certificates donít seem to mean much, but when you apply for a job
outside the rr it could make the difference of getting the job or not.
A lot of the training we get at rr we take for granted. They seem
trivial to us, but are valuable out side of the rr industry. Look at
the bright side the rr is paying you to take these courses, they
offered defensive driving course I took it and then got a reduction on
my auto insurance. It is a win win to take all the courses you can.

When I took my training to be carman to be journey man took 1044 days.
Plus all my welding plates had to pass. Crane training, track mobile
training   1A drivers license, i was paid to get all this training. 
And certified in many fields, if I would of had to pay for all that
training out of pocket would of been thousands of dollars. When your
fully trained and get pulled out of service and go else ware they hate
it. Because the new guy is just a shadow for years, you canít have the
green guy do anything on his own till he is certified.  By the time you
have worked at the rr for years , most people are certified, they are
coo coo, lol

That cross training rumour is bs. This regime most likely wonít be
around in 2020. Donít listen to rr rumours. That one is old heard it
for many years, if they want to train me to do other crafts cool I will
sign up and then take my new skills else ware after they spend all that
money to train me. Would look good on a job application to be multi
skilled.

NO!  And how did you hear about it. My lC hasn't mentioned it. Did you
read something about it on the union web page. It cant be good.
Guarantee you they found another way to stick it to us because HH'S
cut the work force bit him in the ass and they are having to hire
people back because of the man power shortages. They will stop at
nothing to find a way to cut us to the bare bone.  Wish we could get
and early peek at it and see if it needs to be forwarded to a good
lawyer for a plan of attack.  God knows the union wont do shit. They
did nothing about the last one. NOT A DAMN THING!
