Corporate raiders take over a company, fire people, sell assets, and
milk the company to boost the stock price.  They don't care about
customers or employees. It is a proven strategy to make millions in
short term and then move on. A major flaw of unregulated capitalism.

Sounds like hunter is starting his.shit at CSX like he did with CNand
cp. it's not pretty went threw it.i think a guy is better off taking a
layoff and collecting benefits. Because the guys left working,they are
going to work the shit out of you and chase you all day. We went threw
it you can get stressed out pretty fast. And company brags how they get
double production out of one person. And the bs gets thicker and
thicker,to where some just quit !

This is a one shot deal for Hh ,he has only been there a short time and
has made many cuts. Believe me he is far from done cutting at CSX. He
will sell anything that he can get a dollar for. And shut machines down
that he can. Turn the heat and lights off in the shops etc. I could go
on and on. It makes no sense to us to run a business this way. But just
watch the shares go up. I seen it all how one man can affect so many
lives in a negative way. But the share holders love him. Brace yourself
people,he is a dangerous hurricane to CSX.

Operating ratio is simple to get down when you only have 15 trains to
run. Get rid of all those pesky customers that slow our 15 trains down.
Close sidings and straightline switches. No reason to slow down then!!
Keep it up skeletor. By your 80th birthday, you should have effectively
raised the price of most commodities in our country while you are in
your casket with your money bags. Fuck you and your horses you probably
never rode!

Before Hh our rail yard was plugged ,major traffic in and out. Lots of
activity in the yard and main line. After Hh came threw most days you
could fire a cannon ball threw yard and hit nothing. We where one of
the busiest terminals in Canada. We built most trains that went into
USA. And we received trains from USA. Cp stock went up seven dollars in
one week. But no rail traffic I find it hard to figure out where all the
trains are. They are now closing nineteen sidings in western Canada ????
I don't see how this is preparing for the future and so called more
business.

Cprail had 16500 employees beforeHh came. After Hh we are now about ten
thousand. So if Hh tries to cut same ratio at CSX. You could see 13000
employees laid off. Sad but this guy will try and get operating ratio
to the lowest ever. He has lots of push behind him!!!

The last furlough I heard about was before the stb got involved. That's
what made me think that. I know in other situations, the stb made them
call people back, and imposed fines for manpower shortages. Even under
the old regime, this situation calls for cuts. I think this guy is
waiting for the meeting, or possibly/probably the fourth quarter to
make his numbers look good

T&E jobs will continue to be reduced under HH.  This is the same
playbook he used at CN and CPRS.  Rant all you want, however, as long
as Mantle Ridge and the investor groups which support them back HH, he
will continue to reshape CSX which means less T&E jobs.  Only the STB
provides a small glimmer of hope, however he has eluded them in the
past and his pronouncement of "We are back" weeks ago had the effect
of bring the share price back above $50.  It is quite sad to observe
some of the changes since March 6th.

In Canada all locomotives have gps now,and all company vehicles. They
can tell everything if you put you seatbelt on etc. I have seen many
trains come into the yard and there up in the cab downloading
everything. So if there was ever an incedent  the computer tells the
whole story. Good in a lot of ways the data can save you or crush you.

People if you're running on the main you run on signals or another
authority for movement all you need to know is the signal as crossing
you should know where they are if you're qualified on that section of
railroad it's not half the range of vision just cuz of the weather

Hogger

Just read your post and as an interested railroad person I agree 100%
that you and other engineers should have full control over how you run
your trains.  My question is what do you do when you are running in fog
or rain that is so bad you cant see more than a foot in front of your
window.  If you are coming into a yard and you cant see how do you move
in the yard tracks at all? You have switches everywhere. I've seen most
local yards. Do you not move the train and make your conductor get off
and walk ahead of the train or do they have someone make sure you are
already lined up in your tracks. Surely they don't force you to keep
moving your train when you cant even see half the range of vision

Did the surface transportation board put a stop to furloughs until the
meeting or something? With the lost business and the normal fall/
winter slowdown starting, there isn't much work. Our extra board has
had 21 turns for a month now, and it's not turning. It takes a week to
go to work for 1 trip. I'm not wishing for it, it just seems strange to
keep that many turns on it and keep paying guarantee when it's not even
being used. Anyone know anything about that?
