Hey, Who Cares, productivity fund had nothing to do with production.
That was the money pre-85 guys got for selling the brakemen out. It's
over when the last of them retire and unless you have pre-85 seniority,
you didn't qualify anyways.

In other news, Foote says in another interview "throwing money at the
problem" wont solve it, yet not getting paid right is 50% of the
complaints. Guys might volunteer more and not do everything they can to
sneak out if you gave correct tickets like you used to. There was no
problem getting a train recrewed when you followed the agreement and
gave an R pool rate ticket. Our terminal has 8 new hires..... and 9
conductors who have quit in the last 3 months. Making a lot of

Someone should really write a letter to the board of directors and
inform them what is really going on with this railroad from top to
bottom.     It would be a real eye opener for them!!

Interesting how these crooks split the stock on June 28Ö 2 days before
the engineer stock award. Cut the award and future awards by 66
percent. Almost 5 grand this time. I hate this company

If the damn PTC IS SO IMPORTANT AND LIFE SAVING,  then please explain
why you allow CSX to have PTC rules like  1304.1! No speed displayed
and PTC WILL NOT ENFORCE but it is okay to continue running! Explain
this crap!  So your running up on red signals at diamonds intersecting
other lines and no need for the PTC to be working. Not that PTC is
needed for inteligent hoggers doing their job right, but if you want
crews fired for not setting it up and using it on active territory then
why would you allow them to keep running the train with it down and not
capable of enforcement. Keep the freight moving at all cost. The public
isn't stupid!

I'll comment on some of what I just read here, based on my personal

No, Foote is right. You can't hire these young people to be
railroaders. Now, I think Foote and his team are the worst set of
operators I have ever seen in my 47 years of railroading. They are
posers who snuck in through the back door when Harrison was on oxygen,
Foote was supposed to be removed in favor of Creel but he bullshitted
the Board of Directors and now the ship will continue to sink, while
his staff throws him anchors. On the younger worker, it's just not in
the cards. They all want trophies in addition to normal pay. Well
before the pandemic I know hiring officers who said it was hopeless. I
do say TAKE the 5 bills extra a week and sock it away. Someday it will
go toward RR retirement and that's what you want. Make it while you
Disagree with it as a facade to push one man crews. That issue is still
far off.

STB should approve CN and KCS. CN is the ONLY RR not cutting , but
putting money into the RR. Like it used to be. All the other roads
dabble in deferred maintenance and crew costs. This Ruest guy is old
school. Protect the future. Also, I see the STB Chairman as being a
pawn in this game being used by UP and BNSF to stifle their Mexico
competition by halting the merger. This enhances their position and
PUTS thousands of NEW TRUCKS on the highway. Just nuts. 

When you see so many derailments on BNSF, UP CSX you know it's the
RR's fault, period. Whether track, mechanical or fatigue they created
it. Bad time for the RR's except CN. BTW CP is run on a shoestring
still, Harrison Rules. So wherever you work take the money and suck it
up until things change, which may be never. The RR's will ALWAYS make
their money, they don't care about anything else. Their game is the
long con.
Good luck

Itís a scam.    Canít hire anyone.    Sir youíre completely 100%
accurate.  This is all about pushing for 1 man crew.   The government
will have to rubber stamp approval.   Where commerce doesnít stop.

Do you all not understand what is happening here,       Itís a dog and
pony show,     CSX is saying ď hey were HiringĒ.  To make it all appear
to look good.   Then when  they donít hire anyone they can cry to the
government and say ď weíve tried to hire people but we canít find
anyone to work,   Let us run trains with 1 person on themĒ 

Itís all a scam folks,    Donít let this crooks try to fool anyone!!!

I use to love my job. It wasnít so must about the money, but the proud
that I had as a Engineer. Even tho they stole more money from me and my
family that I could count I was still proud to say that I worked for
CSX. When Boychick and his Canadian stooges started growing like cancer
in CSX the love and proud, self worth diminished. Itís all about the
money now. Pay up Boychick itís time. Youíre a thief and the company
that we work for.

cut 33% of workforce and now wonder why there is a man shortage.  Foote
said you cant just throw money at someone to get them to work. 
meanwhile theyve come up with buying vacation back, mark up incentives,
referral bonus, giving away trucks and a vaccine lottery.

Worry about how to keep the men that you have NOW.  The days of some
mindless idiot working every 8hrs is over.   The generation of
employees now aren't going to do it.  It's as simple as that.  Leave
of the transportation men the F alone and be appreciate of someone
being on call 24-7 rather than trying to  make their life more

Now is the time for these shit unions to put the carrier under their

the new mark up incentive is BS. only way anyone is getting a dime is if
they stay marked up the entire time.  Even the ones who do if they have
any paid time off they lose that week. Dang near impossible to collect
the entire amount.
CSX Sucks  don't make any referrals  the referral has to stay employed
the entire year also to receive the bonus.  Anyone with a half a brain
would not last that long as a new conductor.
Who won the new Ford?  somewhat suspect!!!
don't sell any vacation time.  with their latest attendance policy. 
screw them do them no favors.

How many of these new hires are going to stick around once they realize
that CSX tries to make the lives of their employees as miserable as
possible?  Where abuse of power is a CONSTANT THEME, where they use the
SLIMMEST JUSTIFICATION to discipline their employees.  Where they push
their employees to such lengths that they're so disgruntled and
miserable that they're personal lives are almost nonexistent with high
divorce rates, unhappy families, etc.  This company sucks.  I would
never encourage any of my friends or family to work for this miserable
ass place

DV and PL days nullify bonus weeks. No marking off through holiday
season. This is a joke . No thanks keep your money Boychuk. Trying to
have a decent life with a little family time is worth more than $500/
week that you could lose in an instant.

system notice 110 

Don't be fooled to receive the incentive.  Trainman must maintain
perfect attendance from July to January.   There can not be any sick,
displacement, FMLA or any other non-compensated days.  If you have
perfect attendance the entire time and lay off sick 1-1-22 all
incentives are forfeited.  

The wording of SN 110 is deceiving just like the silly ass contracts
are foolish leaders sign off on.
