If they think that PTI isn't noticing these lies they are dead wrong.
We have and it's going to bite someone in CSX in the butt. When I get
called for a run I know where it is and how long it will take me to get
there and how long I will have to travel to the drop off point. I
schedule my time and road stops for bathroom breaks and to get a meal
based on my drive time. A lot of us need to let out family members know
how long we should be out there. It's total bull to show up thinking
your going on a long haul for an hour or more to just to find out your
crew is only going down the road to recrew the train. We got to call
dispatch and tell them if was a bogus call and change the destination.
We know what's happening. The crews tell us everything. They have a
right to. We get tired of the games CSX plays too. It's going to bite
someone hard in the long run. Just keep jerking PTI driver's around. We
get screwed out of work too. They think I'm going to be gone 2-3 hours
driving and I'm only with the crew 30 minutes to an hour if that much.
Then they give another short run to someone else that I could have done
because I'm in the area. Their lying screws us too!
