CSX-Sucks!

Courtesy and Professional CSX Style

You'll do what yer told, you little &%#$@!!!

    CSX likes to picture itself as a company where all of it's employees, customers, and contractors are treated with the highest levels of courtesy, professionalism, and respect. The employees, customers, and contractors know differently....

FUH2 survival guide 

I've been at CP for 30 years. Unfortunately you're about to be
royally screwed. His first move will be to fire multiple employees
across the system in an effort to change the "culture ". Then he'll
go through your contract, and reinterpret every comma, to the
company's advantage. He'll send his minions to fail you with the aim
of having every man on the verge of dismissal. All calling procedures
and local rules will be suspended. Engineers will be forced to work as
brakeman. Crew transportation companies will have their contracts
canceled. You'll be tossed a set of keys and told to drive yourself.
The union will be powerless to stop him, due to the clogged legal
system. But not for lack of trying. Your union dues will double, all to
no avail. 

Start working on your resumes! Take correspondence courses to upgrade
your skill set. Buy CSX call options, with an expiration of Jan 2019!
HH will triple the value of your stocks, come hell or high water,
thereby increasing the value of your options tenfold. You'll take cold
comfort in the devastation around you knowing that you can escape when
it becomes unbearable! I wish I had done it 4 years ago. Good luck
brothers!

This is to.-Me locomotive 10 to 20 years, I'm sorry I put Up instead of
Cp. You clearly are an ignorant son of a bitch who clearly bends over
the desk and gets butt fucked by every manager you come in contact
with. Open your eyes and look what the fuck is happening. Your wishing
for your ticket to the unemployment line you free loading prick. You
are clearly oblivious to the power of HH. EVERYONE WHO WORKS FOR CSX IS
WORRIED FOR THERE JOBS EXCEPT YOU. You clearly swallow like a good boy.

It's my guess you are referring to Bill Setser. He will be heading up
the Northern Region.  What you stated about his chop and fire mentality
has been confirmed as true.  Several supervisors who worked with him
have confirmed he did in fact make it well known that if they weren't
in the fields finding someone to fire they weren't trying hard enough
and were not doing their jobs.  If you can confirm any more factual
information in regards to his lack of ethical reasoning it would be in
the best interest of everyone to be made aware of his actions.  Some
may argue your post does not belong in the safety forum but they could
not be more wrong. When someone new comes to town and takes control
they ALWAYS COME ON FULL FORCE TO MAKE SURE EVERY ONE OF THIER LINE
STAFF UNDERSTAND EXACTLY WHAT KIND OF POWER THEY HAVE! There will be
pressure on the supervisors to show their ability to follow his wishes.
If he is testing them to see which ones can cut the mustard and have the
back bone to fire workers in the field without hesitation they will all
be head hunting without any regards to the rules. This is going to
cause a frenzy in the field and create serious moral problems and
hostile work environment. This in turn creates an unsafe working
environment.  Follow the rules to a tee.  Do not make a single move if
you are in doubt of the exact rule governing the job. We all know the
supervisors have a history of twisting and turning the rules to favor a
failure if they need one bad enough. It has always been this way and
will never change. Do not be afraid to pull your rules book out and
argue the fact if you are wrongly charged. There are major changes
coming to the company and a lot of new heads of state taking over. With
new operation changes and changing of seats there will be pressure out
in the fields. Do your best to follow all rules IN WRITING and contact
your local chairman and General Chairman of all NEW VERBAL RULE CHANGES
the supervisors quote to you as a new rule that has never been put in
writing.

Dear Colleagues,

Strong leadership on the Operations team is critically important as we

in whom I have the utmost confidence based on their deep experience,
passion for our business and unwavering commitment to CSX. Together,
they will help us continue to expedite our advancements in safety,
service and efficiency.

These leadership changes reflect our stated intention to reorganize our
operations around the primary and local networks to improve efficiency
and service to our customers. The leaders will report to me, unless
otherwise indicated. Effective immediately:

Mike Pendergrass will continue to serve as Chief Transportation
Officer, leading the implementation of our network segmentation
strategy. Reporting to Mike are:
∑         Jermaine Swafford, who is appointed vice president of
Transportation, with responsibility for our Primary Network;
∑         Gery Williams, who is appointed to the newly created position
of vice president of the Local Network, with responsibility for helping
us further improve first-mile, last-mile service to our customers; and
∑         Bob Frulla, who will have expanded responsibility as vice
president of Network Operations, with oversight of Customer Service,
Passenger Operations and PTC.
The corridor structure will be further supported by the leadership of
Larry Koster, who will serve as General Manager of the Eastern
Corridor, headquartered in Florence, S.C.; David Hamby, who will serve
as General Manager of the Central Corridor, headquartered in Atlanta,
Ga.; and Bill Setser, who will serve as General Manager of the Northern
Corridor, headquartered in Indianapolis, Ind. Larry, David and Bill will
report to Jermaine.

Brian Barr is promoted to vice president of Mechanical, in recognition
of his strong performance as chief mechanical officer for the Southern
Region.

John Bradley is appointed vice president of Service Design, having
previously served as vice president of Southern Region Transportation.
The Car Management and Process Excellence teams will now report to
John.

Rod Logan is appointed assistant vice president of Safety, responsible
for further strengthening our focus and performance in this critical
area.

Ricky Johnson will remain as vice president of Engineering, with
expanded responsibility to include oversight of our Highly Automated
Railroad initiatives.

Mike Smith, Jim Marks and John Hart are retiring. Mike, Jim and John
have made important contributions to CSX during their many years of
service, for which we are immensely grateful. We wish them equal
success in their future endeavors.

The Operations leaders will work together over the coming weeks to
finalize their reporting structures. Please join me in supporting them
as they take on new responsibilities and help us safely and reliably
serve our customers and our nationís economy.

Sincerely,

Cindy Sanborn

Nice but pitiful post in content. CSX is a profitable Corporation that
makes money to pay all that work there. It is not your mother or father
just a job.

<p>I am one of the 1000 being purged in the initial stages of what
will
become the Hunter Harrison era.  It has been a great privilege to work
for CSX.  I work in the Technology area and can truly say that this is
the best place I have ever worked.  I want to personally thank Mr.
Ward
and the board for looking out for his employees during these very
difficult times.  It speaks volumes for the character of this
man.</p><p>What is going on now is a tragedy.  It is nothing more than
a hostile takeover of a company pandering to the big stockholders and
the market.  The operating ratio will be achieved by drastic cost
cutting, heavy employee attrition rates, and a culture change that
will
be ruled by fear and anxiety.  HH has never grown business, only
achieved goals by significant employee cutting, rolling stock
inventory
reductions, real estate sales, and accounting tricks.</p><p>What CSX
means to Jacksonville will drastically change, if it remains a
Jacskonville company at all.  HH at CP wanted to merge with CSX and he
failed.  He moved on to target a NS merger and that failed.  Now he
wants to take over CSX with the ultimate goal of merger with CP by
negotiating with his hand-picked successor.  His precision railroading
works well on railroads where the ride from point A to B only faces
bad
weather and elk crossings.  It is a very bad fit for the congested,
short routes CSX and NS face in the heavily congested East
Coast.</p><p>I still hold out hope that stockholders will not support
this man and tell him to take his nurse and retire quietly.  His offer
includes promises that won't be backed by incentives based upon
performance and he is fighting the request for an independent health
assessment.  Stockholders have a right to know if this $300 million
man
is healthy enough to last 4 years before giving him
guarantees.</p><p>To
my fellow CSX employees, God bless you and may you find peace during
these difficult times.  Contrary to what the market analysts say, CSX
is a well run company greatly impacted by the utter destruction of the
coal industry thanks to the growing administrative state.  The loss of
revenue there is the greatest reason for the operating ratio
stagnation.  We are witnessing the destruction of a great institution
that will resonate through the industry.  No one should be
celebrating.</p>

I worked for csx for three years in the engineering dept. From day one,
they hire you to fire you. I was tossed around bumped and rolled
constantly for three years. The union is weak and your true union
brothers are legit but theres a few who will stick it in you. You just
lay a little cheese out to catch the rat fucks. But anyway, this hunter
harrison character is not for the working man. He is going to lay off
thousands. Look what he did to UP. share holders love him workers hate
him. He is the grim reaper of the railroad. He will cut jobs beyond
cutting and cut some more. Its ashame its going to this now because I
really did enjoy working with the people and having fun at work. Greed
is gonna fold this company while destroying thousands of homes and
dreams of the workers. Thanks chickenshitexpress

I sure hope Hunter Harrison fires some of these incompetent Diversity
Hires they have acquired over the years.  Maybe the new CSX will hire
and promote managers based on qualifications and ability rather that
trying to win some type of EEOC award to hang on the wall.

well, I hope they don't give Harrison 300 million to chop CSX. I am
sure he can do his job for far less, and given stock interests and (I
assume) his interest in his historical record, I suspect he would do it
for free. Think of Herbert Hoover and the public service works he did,
restoring his reputation. HOWEVER, consider the current CSX management.
Lots of nepotism, poor performers at all levels, effort put on craft
employees to subsidize the ineptness of management, with good bonuses
to higher managers who cannot manage ANYTHING properly.This has been in
effect an Appalachian family business with "family and kinfolk"
standards. Keep current management and CSX just sinks more slowly,
until all the loser management groups and cronies leave. Since they all
have families needing jobs, that could take forever. Best
solution.....give Bill Gates a big model RR with all cars painted CSX,
and hope he buys the REAL CSX for a year or two and straighten it out
(invite his dear friend Warren to run trains every Friday night..put
remote dispatch centers / simulators in Omaha and Seattle, invite
friends (Paul Allen?)to join in and make the system normal. Maybe even
Fix PTC that is going soooo slowly.

If you think for one minute that Hunter Harrison will grow CSXT you are
sadly misguided. This whole ego scheme is all about money for him and
the shareholders. They will make their money very quick within a few
years and they will leave the company and all the employees in shambles
for his cronies to take over. Harrison and Hilal are telling investors
that a 58 percent operating ratio will mainly be done within the first
18 months of his employment. CP cannot grow their business now that
Harrison has come and gone. They dont have the infrastructure rolling
stock or employees or a customer base to do that because he has
destroyed that. Thousands and thousands of jobs will be lost rails and
real estate will be sold off locomotives will be parked and the older
ones will be junked. A lot of new Managers will come in and they are
already trained to operate locomotives as the same method was done at
CP. A lot of yards will be closed as well as humps being done away with
or closing them all together. He hates them. TandE employees will take
the largest hit besides management but all departments will be affected
and those others that will quit due to the poor working conditions. Ns
will pick up a lot more of our customers as Harrison will have our
current ones to bend over for CSXT or get lost. His health is bad and
he wont be at CSXT but for a few years thats all he needs to do the
damage to bust it up. Do the history of CP from the time he started
until now and you will see the Harrison affect. So sad for all the CSXT
employees that have worked so hard to be forced to give it all up for
his ego and shareholders. CSXT will never recoup. Enjoy what you have
today as you better be looking for another place of employment
regardless of your seniority. Your new job will be his way or the
highway as the current working conditions will never be the same. He is
used to having thousands of greivances filed against his bullies and he
doesnt care about the employees. It will be a blood bath by this summer
to fall. If you dont think your job will change dramadically at any
level you will be amazed at how quick he makes the changes he thinks is
needed. Union reps will either suck up to him or they too will find
theirself on the street. His demands as a CEO for profits will be
unforgiving as he has stated that it doesnt bother him one bit to go to
sleep at night thinking about the carnage of the employees.. The board
better not agree to the Hilal demands for control of the board or all
we will be screwed for good. Good luck to all that are left.
