The rules are written in black and white with NO EXCEPTIONS as to how
you are to set up an unattended DP remote engine. 
It has been reported that Trainmasters have been ordering crews to set
out the DP units without the EC switch in issolate to expedite quicker
moves. It has also been reported that crews are getting DP units out of
their engine houses already locked up and are being instructed to stay
out of them and not to set the EC switch to isolate when attatching
them to the head end of a cut of cars or setting them out in a track by
themselves.
THIS IS A SERIOUS FRA VIOLATION AND SHOULD BE REPORTED TO YOUR LOCAL
CHAIRMAN AND YOUR RESPECTIVE FRA AGENTS. There is no room for these
kind of unsafe and dangerous actions. Cutting corners and demanding the
unsafe securement of remote or DP locomotives can not be tolerated.
Departure times of any train does not justify endangering crews or
other craft workers on the property. REPORT THESE ACTIONS IN A TIMELY
MANNER.

You got that right about management crossing our lines. Not just ours
either.  They have been hanging tele's, lacing up hoses, take off
brakes and I heard one of them moved an engine last week. This is
bullshit. These kind of violations are supposed to go straight to the
top. I bet no one is turning them in because they are scared of these
new CN cronies they are bringing in.  Sit back and bitch and let them
rape you and the agreement and not say a word.  That is one thing these
CN managers have on their side.

Corporate mole

You just gave it away. If you were real railroad you would know who HH
is.

Time for the distractors to chime in. Topics must be making someone
itch in Jacksonville. 
What about this accident that was posted????  Did not hear about it.
Bound to happen out here. The next one will be at the big 4 yard at
Avon. Breaking operating and timetable special instruction rules out
the arss! Management has been crossing into union covered territory and
doing the work of T&E. This is major no no crap going on there. HOS is
going to be their next thorn in the arss. 

OK company mole....bring on your best shot!

This is some crazy shitz! The CN guys warned us that HH ordered union
and federal rules to be broke, but the shitz going on now is just
jacked up! Hh is dead but these cronies are hell bent on following in
his foot steps. This ain't happening on my watch. Operating rules
departments needs to know how they are twisting rules and just outright
violating them. Where do these retards get the idea they can violate Fed
and  State laws any time they want. Hell no! Not on my watch. Looks like
whistleblowing is going to be the next norm out here!

Have you been asleep. Have you not watched them slip in CN management
littlt by little after the old man Hunter died. You were warned time
and time again by CN crews that lived his nightmare and his henchmen
who did his dirty work, it was coming. They are going to screw eyes
out. CN guys claim they won their claims in the long run. HOW? What was
their representation like. Don't forget boys, they know the mistakes
they made in the past and they are coming back with a new and improved
plan. This is not the time for little boys to be working out here. Grow
a pair or quit and go home. This is not a fair ball game. The gloves are
off. You better start thinking how your going to level the playing
field.

Yes it's illegal, but companies use third party contractors to collect
data on you. The best way to it reduce to a minimum is get a designated
work phone only, and do not upload any photos are apps. It's like
having a beeper during the old days.
And if you're off on Family Leave, leave your phone off (at home)
while enjoying your family leave away from home (the strip clubs) while
during therapy!

Tracking

I thought the only way they could track you is if you have your
location app on. I didn't think they had the capabilities to do that.
When you down load an app it usually gives you details on what they can
access. It is the law.  I will have to go in an look into the details of
their app. If they dont have info listed and they can access your files
then they should be reported. That is illegal.

Karma

Amen brother. That TM Chuck supposidly made a gentleman's agreement if
Avon crews take care of the 642 outbound work  their crews would do all
the 641 outbound work. It doesn't work out that way most the time.
There are certain laf. Guys who always seen to never get in on time and
Avon crews get screwed going that work too. There is no such thing as a
damn gentleman's agreement! The crooked Chicago supervisors took off
the first shift yard job so they could deny claims. Labor relations is
saying YW claims are no good because there is no yard jobs. If second
trip comes on duty while your working you should stop working and they
should take over.  Of course that ain't gonna happen! Add 2nd shift
yard crew to your claim. Put names and cars handled in their shift. All
moved made over 3. This bullshit that it's an intermediate terminal is
bullshit as well. You go to the hotel. It's the end of your run. It's
the beginning run for the outbound. Also, you need to report doing the
carmans work if you got to class one any tracks. They have one assigned
to the yard and he is never there. They say he can't class one cars
unless they are on air supply. You should never have to class one any
cars hooked to air. That's his job or a damn yard jobs duties. They
get away with too much shit there. Pulling in and doing 3-4 hours flat
switching to build the outbound train is bullshit. Crews should set out
their inbound Lafayette cars and get the hell off. Outbound needs to get
on their shitand do their jobs. Avon crews build their train at home
then come in and build Lafayetts outbound. Treated like dogs. This is
why NO ONE will answer a roster call and why so many take FMLA!

   Yes taking trains to Lafayette is ridiculous. It's taking way more
that 3 moves to get the train ready for the outbound crew to take the
train to Chicago. Keep turning in those YW claims, Labor Relations will
decline them, just be very specific as to ever move you made and give to
you LC for appeal. Also, as with most other terminals, be very careful
what you say around those Lafayette Yardmasters, they are notorious for
throwing guys under the bus for everything.

Everyone should know by now, if you download your company app on your
smartphone, your employer can track your every movement (including
strip clubs), has access to your media files, contact list,
photos,and--can enable your camera/microphone for easy observation.

Conductor brothers

Does anyone know what the article number is for the time we have to
return a call.  I know I have seen it in the past that we have 10
minutes to return a call from CMC. The new IVR miss call procedure is a
bunch of bull shit and I can tell you right now, it is not a 10 minute
procedure from the time they call you first to the last call. I don't
have a secondary number and they did not call me 3 times like they
stated they would do with someone who does. I also know of 2 guys who
have already been miss called by this new IVR intimidation call system
and it was only 6 minutes after the 3rd attempt. They were both already
miss called. This company is just stooping to an all time low and its
time for some come to Jesus meetings. They can take this crap and stick
it.  I will take the miss call and the 12 hours off and file ethic
charges against their asses while Im drinking beer and enjoying my
sentence!  There is no doubt this is being done by the new CN regime.
Need to send their asses packing and back to Canada where they belong!

ALL ENGINEERS!!!


NOTICE! DANGEROUS INCIDENT!

If you are just getting the Trip Optimizer programs on your area and
you are running with PTC if you are not seasoned with it, then you need
to pay close attention to this. 

If you link the PTC and the TO program together please be aware that
ANY TIME you receive a consist review or you are sent an update to the
PTC , IT WILL DROP OUT THE TRIP OPTIMIZER!  When this happens, of
course you will have to take manual control of your train. If you are
running with a DP train you will have to move the control of the DP to
the front. This is just another distraction added to the current one at
hand.  THIS IS A DANGEROUS SITUATION! It takes several seconds to first
realize you have lost the TO control, then you have to go through the
process of moving the control to the front and then try to match your
throttle with what ever position it was in when the control was lost in
the first place. 
It has been reported that an engineer was caught by surprise when a
consist update review came across the screen and knocked out the TO
program. He was also on a DP train. He was in a steep down hill curve
and the TO was already holding the train back. The engineer was not
able to correct everything in time and was forced to speed and had to
bring the train to a stop. THIS IS A DANGEROUS SITUATION WITH THE
LINKED PTC AND TO PROGRAM. If you know where your train reader is after
you leave your terminal and you know that you will get a request to
review an update at some point after you leave, DO NOT USE THE TRIP
OPTIMIZER until after you get the request for the review. If the fuel
conservation desk wants to know why you do not have your TO turned on
do not hesitate to tell them that it will not be safe to use until
after you have received your consist review request. These incidents
should be reported to the FRA and the PTC desk.

FACTS GIRLS!

We all know who was crying on that last post. Lets get something
straight here.  when you roll in form Avon or from Chicago on a
specific train an in goes through with the same job symbol it is
because the train is considered THROUGH FREIGHT to the other end. The
yard you stop in on the way to do a pick up and set off in not
originating.  It is an intermediate location! Therefore it is no
different than stopping in route and picking up in a siding or even a
closed yard. So get over it!  The yard your are arriving at whether it
be from Chicago to your home terminal or from Avon to your away
terminal is classified as an intermediate point and you can do 3 moves
to build the thing.
