Its already started. The rath of the great white HUNTER has already
started. Avon hump crews are already following one of his orders that
ALL CUTS WITH BE CUT OFF ONE CAR AT A TIME.! Doesn't matter if a block
of 3 cars are going to the same place, each car will be cut off
individually. Now I don't know about you but it sounds like someone
might end up getting carpal tunnel of the elbow! Can you image standing
on a hump for 8 hours pulling cut levers on 110 car trains going over
He also has put the order out that 8 hours on a local or yard job is 8
HOURS PERIOD!!! You cant bust your arss anymore and get the car count
that Jacksonville has always required so you can get done a little
early or take just a few more minutes for lunch. If you are on an 8
hour job your butt better be there 8 hours. You actually get your local
work done early and get back to the yard if you got any time left your
going to be put to work in the yard. Your on a relief dog catch crew
and you drag in a couple trains and got time left you will sit on your
butt for the remainder of the time or the TM will find you any crap
they can think of to keep you moving around for no less than 8 hours.
Interesting to see how they rape and violate long pool crews coming in
as a J JOB or dog catching job out of the hotel. You sit in the hotel
for 15 hours and they decide to dead head you home because there are
too many crews there the chief will put you on a relief crew ticket and
make you work for 12 hours. There is no such thing as an 8 hour job on
trip rated long pool hauls. No assigned start and end times for these
pool. You get put on a dog catching ticket they are going to run you
into the ground for 12 hours. If there is nothing to drag in on your
way home in the wagon you will be put to work when you get to the yard.
3-4 hour wagon ride then a J JOB dog for no less than 4... Its coming!
If your pool is being used as an extra board all the time get ready to
get your eyes screwed out.
So get ready to buy some new boots and FOR GOD SAKES START FILLING
THOSE CLAIMS FOR ALL THE TICKETS THE CHIEF GIVES YOU AND PAYROLL
COMBINES THEM AND TAKES THEM BACK! YOU THINK YOUR GET A SCREWING NOW
YOU HAVENT SEEN ANYTHING YET!
