Hey former LC:

Do you get a royalty payment every time you spout off the typical union
line conservative bullshit?  Pretty sure that was Clinton that signed
NAFTA, and it was Obama that openly said what he was going to do to the
coal industry BEFORE he got elected and he damn sure made good on that
promise.  Neither of them were conservative.  Only reason unions stroke
the dicks of democrats is for the Presidential Emergency Board. Nothing
else.  Equal blame on both sides. Crooked political influence is an
equal opportunity employer.  Was "encouraged" by my rep to "vote for
Obama" and "for Hillary".  I haven't seen the first recipient of my
dues deductions calling out HH in the media for what he is doing to CSX
or its customers.  The Government taxed Industry out of this country,
and it was and is greedy reps in both parties that are to blame.  The
working man always gets fucked, double fucked when you can't strike.

Whether Trump succeeds in bringing jobs back remains to be seen, but I
hope so.  More people working, means more union members working, means
more chances for organizing.  Equals more dues paying members, right?
or should I say, Well, duh?

In the meantime, let's stay on topic of Hunter Harrison who is
actively destroying this company and contract employees' future job
security, and the daily operations of other businesses.  I believe we
can all agree on that.

The guy that wrote and said with Hh it is now about his ego and legacy
not the money is 100 per cent right. He is backed into corner now that
things are not going as planned. Who know what crazy shit he will do

Before hh took over cp,we had twelve full time car inspectors in the
yard. And yes we where told you have thirty seconds per side to inspect
cars. And you chalked striker castings. Once that started we where down
to two inspectors per shift. Some shifts no dinner break of coffee
break. And if it got really busy they took carman out of the shop to
inspect a train then sent them back once they did inspections. And yes
they where doing pull by inspection and break test. On the potash
trains then they had to yard potash trains because they needed two
hundred brake shoes each train. Because they where neglected. And once
they hit the yard we would find twenty to thirty bad order wheels. 
They can defer repairs but sooner or later it has to be done. So in
reality they gained nothing.  They cut back on so many carmen. They had
to fly managers in on the weekend to do repairs.  AAR rules are the same
in Canada and USA. Hh is not scared of government. I'm sure he will get
around to doing same thing there as he did at cp.

Thanks to CSX right now I am running UPS trailers between Chicago and
Boston for enough money that well I am thinking about a new truck by
the end of the freaking year it will be a glider kit since I do not run
CA anyway.  UPS hired about 100 Owner Ops over Teamster objections and
we are independent contractors for them via their UPS Freight division
is how they did it.  However all I have been pulling for the last month
running team is UPS Big Brown boxes from their Willow Springs facility
to Boston or other points in the NE as fast and myself and my teammate
and our HOS will freaking allow it.  UPS is paying for all tolls we get
meaning IN OH NY MA PA hell anywhere the state charges to use the roads
over the fuel tax they are paying for it.  Why they terminated all UPS
contracts with CSX and now need to move all their own stuff so they are
short.  So drivers that can move them fast aka teams are raking in the
money for a while.  Thank you EHH for screwing up one of the best
business deals in the history of Railroading by running UPS off the
railroad on the East Coast.  Now to grab my next load East and haul
butt back to Beantown.  We both needed a reset on hours 70 hours in 6 
days killed our log books so we took 2 days off at home.  However that
almost 30 large in the bank this week will look nice on the books.

complaints - give that up account those outfits may come down hard on
the little guy employee but usually kiss big business butt".

Ape less than one.

I believe you are on the safety site spouting off ideas of cutting
customer service.  And how is that a safety issue.  Talk about the pot
calling the kettle black! Not fooled made a hell of a lot more sense
than you.

If anyone in any craft is given a memo or views a memo that instructs
anyone to cut corners or intimidates anyone into thinking they have to

immediately contact the USDOT and file a charge letter. If you can not
get a copy of it then make sure you get as much information as you can
as to where it originated from and who may be the responsible party for
its original circulation.   This is not CANADA!  HH may thumb his nose
at the STB but its constant complaints and bad publicity that gets

Well, the major shareholders wanted a change and the Board Of Directors
supported it.  The ol' CSX that was loved/hated is probably gone. 

Hasn't been that long yet since headhunter took over. 
We'll see - time will tell. 

If thinking government agencies will be of much help regarding all the
complaints - give that up account those outfits can/may come down hard
on the little guy employee but usually kiss big business butt.

Good luck to all.

Everyone knows that Precision RR is a sham.  Evelyn can blame anyone or
everyone.  The blame rest on Evelyn's shoulders and all his yes men.  

The last few days I worked.  I've heard tm, ym and dispatchers all
making fun of this madman's insanity.  Where I'm from we now stage
autoracks for weeks at a time before they're picked up.  One train
sets off blocking the main and siding and about a week or so later
another train blocks the main and siding to pick up.  There are over a
100 racks sitting in an interchange. About 100miles from where they're
original picked up. 
That's all for now I have to take a precision shit.

When are you going to wake up and GET IT!  If I see one more post about
HH and his greed agenda I'm going to puke!  Wake the hell up and use
your heads.   This IS NOT ABOUT MONEY!  This guy has more money than he
knows what to do with.  This is about power. This is about EGO! This is
about doing one last stand before he dies or retires. Which ever come
first doesn't matter.  He is going to be buried with a tomb stone that
says....."Here lays the greatest CEO in the world!" The only CEO who
could turn several dying railroads around and make them profitable for
everyone! A man who came in and took charge of a large class 1 railroad
and made it great!  Showed everyone how smart he was and showed everyone
they were wrong and he was right.  THE KING OF THE RAILROAD. HIS NAME IN

What it wont say is he was a 72 year old man dragging around an oxygen
tank and popping blood clot and blood pressure medicine and sadly
grasping at his last attempt of fame and glory. A man who wasted his
last years alive on this earth trying to show everyone how wrong they
were and went to his grave doing it.

You cant compete with that kind of crazy old man conviction. You can
only make it more complicated for him by standing your ground and
filing complaints every time he breaks federal laws and violates your
agreements. Violations of OSHA. Violations of the EEOC. Safety
standards set by the USDOT.  Take pictures. Tape record if necessary.
Circulate copies to outside parties any memo that orders unsafe work
practices. This man wants to win his crown dead or alive.  That my
friends makes him very unstable and unpredictable. Hope your Local
chairman are getting their butts in gear. Their jobs are under attack
as well.

In Evansville, Clayton Hodges is finally a roadmaster after ten years.
ADE Travis Johnson promoted him. Clayton had his finger driven in a
bolt hole holding a bolt on a joint bar that was hit by a sledgehammer
held by Travis Johnson. An injury not turned in. Did not Travis learn
from his dad Rick Johnson when KJ McDivitt's injury was covered up and
turned in? Clayton who had his leg driven under a tie when he stepped in
the backhoe red zone. He broke a window out of a csx vehicle and nothing
happened. Also the time he took out of service the morganfield branch
but would remove the orange lock off the switch to allow the local to
work the industries and would put the lock back on after the local was
done. Good luck to evansville and see them on CNN later.

I worked in the Csx technology area for 5 years.  I got out a few weeks
after HH arrived.  Went to a company close by for a 50% salary increase
and 1% of the aggravation.  All these technology positions are just
replacements for all the contractors that HH let go.  In another
brilliant HH concept he released all contractors who keep a very
complicated technology system together to run the RR and replace them
with FTEs off the street with no RR experience.  They are one major
tech event away from shutting the RR down for days or weeks.  Too bad,
it was a great company with great people but it will take years to
recover from this a hole.  Good luck Csx.

Hh takes the people with most resistant and the biggest mouth and orders
them fired.and sets an example. He brags about this. You can stand tall
and think I have contract and government rules to protect me. They will
fire your ass just because they can. The name of the game is to fire the
guys you thought where the rocks in your industry. I'm fucking telling
you this prick does not care. He will shake things up so muchto get
share price up you are just an opsticle that gets kicked out of the
way.warning if you go to media hide your identity. You have not seen
nothing yet what this prick has planned for csx.
