I need to give a heads up on a closet gay and a snitch.  This man loves
to take pics without your knowledge (especially when your nude) and
share it with coworkers thinking it’s funny.  He manipulates the system
to try to be with certain engineers. (Yes he is a conductor) He will set
you up for management to get you in trouble.  Watch out for this snitch
who wants to be everybody’s friend.  He makes fun of all of you in
these areas. (Montgomery, Birmingham, and Nashville) He is based out of
Birmingham.  He talks about golfing and jeeps.  He has 3 really good
friends who he hangs out with sully, Mayo, and stone. Please be aware
of him and make Damn sure if your in a hotel with him that you make
sure you have your curtains fully closed. Yes he likes to video you on
his phone and share it with your coworkers to humiliate you.  If you
haven’t guessed who he is yet just ask anyone in Birmingham who the
snitch and is on the train constantly with Sully.  He’s a coward, if
you confront him he will run away from you.  Just ask Billy Ledger
about him. His initials are M C B. He started out at Stuckey’s in
Hayden Alabama as a cashier and CSX hired him as a conductor. (Imagine
that) So his mentality is still with Stuckey’s, no morals and no ethics
whatsoever.  If you see him call him Ol’ Stuckey boy.

Back in he day the car department use to do a standing inspection on all
trains every 500 miles. Then the main line trains where taken away from
the car department. And train crews did pullbys. We took 4 years of in
house training to be journey man in the craft. Trainmen get a crash
course it’s a joke really. They kept the carman away from mainline
trains because we would always find bad orders that had to be switched
out. Now the goverment lets the railroads do what they want and cross
there fingers nothing is going to happen. So when trainmen watch the
train by and give it the ok. And something happens they try to use them
as scape goats.

From reading footes address to shareholders in 2018.sounds like he still
wants to cut over3000 more employees in 2019 and sell off anything that
is not in use. He still wants to get operating ratio down a lot more. I
thing this is going to be a tough year for CSX employees. You better
save your pennies because this regime is far from there target numbers.
Hopefully these statements to share holders are to appease them. But in
his own words they are taking all the low hanging fruit they can get.
It’s going to be push push, so try and be as safe as you can. Don’t run
to please these pricks and cost someone there life. Safety first folks,
fuck mantle gang.

We run a shortline railroad that interchanges with CSX. For the first
three years of our operation the yardmaster that the local is
dispatched out of did not even know we existed. Our cars are never
delivered on time or even at all. I used to have respect for CSX but
that is all gone now.

With management putting in all there time in at CSX,the only records
that are going to be broken are by management. Is the amount of
divorces that are going to go down. Your new x-wife will get child
support vaginamony, the house etc.  Once your served papers her lover
can use the front door, and will not have to sneak in the back door
anymore. This will be the only records broken at CSX for 2019.

There are far better companies to invest in with nice dividends. And a
lot less risk than CSX. If you do your own trading at home or threw a
broker your aware of this. The guy that just get pay deducted to go
towards CSX stock that’s ok also. But be cautious of the messages sent
out by this regime.

shipments since this time last year.

SAVE SAVE SAVE!   No one should ever have to be out here more than 25
years. If you plan accordingly you can get out. This job has broken
down many a railroaders bodies and ruined their lives at home. Time
lost with your family is something you can never get back. And for
what?  A decent living with a little better retirement than others? You
can be smart and save. Don't live above your means. Don't try to keep
up with the Jones. Who cares. Leave early and enjoy your life. Now you
cant even claim your out of pocket expenses out here. Just another slap
in the railroaders face. Stop feeding the unions any more than you have
to. Be smart and get out early!

In Canada at the rr you can retire at 55. Your age and years of service
has to be 85 points. So if you start at age 20 work till your 55 that
is 35 years of service and a full pention.

The reason RR retirement is so good is retirement at age 60 rather than
65+

Do this retirement math.  Instead of the Tier 2 which is the railroad
retirement portion or 4.9% of your pay. If I was allowed to invest in a
401k or other retirement account drawing just 5%  annual rate of return
on $4,000 invested per year (my tier 2 was $4,700 last year) I would
have a balance after 30 years of 273k and 40 years at  496k.  Or
drawing 10% annual rate of return, it would be 693k and 1.86 million
respectively!  So, of your 4K railroad railroad retirement what is the
tier 2 portion?  2k per month?  That retirement account money would
almost assuredly go to my heirs instead of other “railroaders” who were
screwing me over for 30 or 40 years like railroad retirement will. The
point is that railroad retirement isn’t as great as it seems.

Try and find the loop hole where you can, resign a month before your
normal retirement date. And if you can transfer all you money into a
personal registered retirement plan. Then you can take it at your
normal retire ment date. Invest and live nicely off the dividend. And
if you die the money goes to your estate. There is a loop hole I think
to do this.

If you want any peace of mind and need to really figure out what is in
store for you, then make an appointment with the nearest rr retirement
office and crunch the numbers with them. I did just that. I walked into
the office with 15 years service and wanted to know what I would be
making if I quit in 20 years. They were able to figure out pretty close
exactly how much I would make after the penalties of leaving early if I
waited and drew my check at 62 or at 65. They also told me for every
year I worked after I walked out I could add another 100 dollars to it.
Cost of living raises, etc. could be figured in safely at that amount.
Rest assured I was happy knowing what I was looking at in another 5
years. It helped me tremendously in deciding how to invest and what I
needed to do to plan for leaving. Im old enough to not worry to much
about finding something to live on between leaving and 62. Maybe you
are not. You might find it will work for you if you want to get out
early and you have other income to tide you over. There are some rules
about taking another job after you quit if you leave early and don't
draw until later. They will explain this to you.  It was a load off my
shoulders knowing I didn't need to slave out here for 30 years if I
didn't want to!

LOCO,

The post was in reference to just the total amount of Railroad
Retirement Tier 2 taxes contributed\deducted\paid, the amount
over & above Tier 1 - the Social Security equivalent tax. {Not ALL
total lifetime earnings.)

Have recouped way more in RR Retirement Tier 2 retirement pay than paid
in during career and that's in just the first 4+ years.  
 
RR Retirement earnings amount(s) are based on yrs. of service and
RR income.  There are many RR retirees (including myself) drawing more
than 4K per month. A spousal annuity is roughly 45-46% of the
retired employee's.    

Railroad Retirement Sickness and Unemployment benefits are the pits
but retirement is tough to beat.

You got me thinking about this. Thank god my wife saves all my
paperwork. We just sat down and added up all my total wages earned for
the last 21 years using the info off of my pay stubs. I earned over
$1,437,456.00 in the last 21 years. Then we added all my bring home pay
after everything was taken out. This did include my 40lk money taken out
but it was never over 15% ever. In 21 years I brought home $752,504.00. 
 
752,504> 21 years is about an average of $35,833.00 a year bring home.
If the stock market crashes and I lose my 40lk money in order to keep
living like we are I need a monthly RR retirement check cleared at
$3000.00.  Please tell us your making at least double that. I cant do
40 years out here. No way in hell.

Get out your 2017 tax return or look at the ending pay statement. If
you add the federal taxable gross plus any money you put into your 40lk
and any money you may have contributed to it from a bonus you will come
up with the figure that you see on the service record you got in the
mail. You will also notice that it is not what is shown on your pay
statement as TOTAL GROSS.
That year I showed over 100,000 in total wages but the rr retirement
board gives me compensated credit for 95,000. Retired said he had 40
years of service so we can all assume he was smart and put most of his
money away. He must be getting one big fat check to have made
everything he earned back in 4 1/2 years just on his rr retirement
check. Most of us wont be out here 40 years. He was an exception to the
rule.

Retired

I just looked at my railroad retirement statement that I got in the
mail. It says that my career retirement record compensation is 
$1,418,379.43   So how have you made everything back in 4 1/2 years.
Every one that I have talked to so far has said they make around 4
grand a month for railroad retirement if they are single. Spouse adds a
little extra if she is getting it.
