The post from LESSON101! is probably from another one of those yay-hoos
that have a huge, big mouth but in reality have small testicles.

True -  many new(er) people are 1st time ever union members & need to
realize that most management officials are not their friend.

True - Interstate commerce disruptions in this country will not be
tolerated.  The last national rail strike lasted 17 hrs.  Read & try to
understand the Railway Labor Act.

Young cubs and Hoggers!  

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce quote..  "U.S. supply chains are
critically dependent on the quality and capacity of the American
freight transportation network. We are anticipating 100 million new
people in the country and 4 billion more tons of international freight
to move around America by 2050. The railroads are one of the most
heavily used transit system in the world."
And you cant understand why you cant strike...really?

Now lets get to the point. Your harassment and intimidation didn't
really get rolled out until the company realized that they had a golden
opportunity. The old heads were getting close to retirement and the talk
of the 30 and 60 and you were up for retirement was in the works.
That's when they began to hire again. They were anticipating serious
man power shortage if they didn't get people trained and in place. So
how were they going to handle the large turn over and the incoming of
so many new cubs? First train them and then bull whip and intimidate
them to death and make them scared to death to stand up for themselves.
CASTRATE ALL OF THEM! How many of you young pups remember your trainers
telling you not to listen to any of the old heads. They are just
disgruntled and will only get you in trouble. Tons of heard it!  Why?
Because we had balls. We wouldn't tolerate management violating the
hell out of our union agreements. We wouldnt take having our pay stolen
that was rightfully ours. we wouldn't take a beating and just stand
there like little boys with our pants wet. Moving freight in a timely
manner is a must! No if's and's or but's!  When they got abusive we
did what we had to in order to get the attention of Headquarter
officials. They wanted 400 cars switched a night they got 200. It
didn't take long for the white collars to show up and want to talk to
us and find out what was going on. The problems were fixed with a
temporary bandaid for awhile but at least they were fixed. If we had to
do it again, then we did. 
Management is well aware of the power that you have. This industry
demands that freight move and keep moving quickly. A stoppage would be
detrimental.
So now comes your observation testing. Some of you may remember when it
was called "Performance evaluations" instead. For some legal reason
they had to change it. This was a great way to scare the hell out of
the new pups and send the fear that there will be eyes on you all the
time and maybe in the bushes as well. Old heads didn't give a shit.
Any of you remember an old head that could turn a 6 hour job into a 12
and they couldnt find a damn thing to charge them on? EXPERIENCE! You
screw with our agreement and our pay and we will remind you just how
much power we really have. You pay us right and treat us with respect
we will switch the shit our of your yard and give you 500 on a great
day! This isn't MacDonalds boys! This is a serious business that
demands movement of freight.
If a manager ever walked up to us and told us "I don't care if Im
violating your agreement. File a claim and take it up with your union
rep. Now get out there and do as your told or you will be charged with
insubordination he would have been one sorry supervisor. He could
explain it to the white collars when they flew into town! 
Some of you young pups probably don't come from a union family and
have no idea how hard blue collar workers have fought to get them.
Yeah, they aren't worth a shit half the time anymore but it doesn't
matter.  You got more power than you can ever imagine. Grow a set of
balls and stick together. MAN UP and stand up. We did it. When your
right, your right. Don't work 8 damn hours straight without a lunch.
This no lunch shit is for the birds.  How did you ever let management
brow beat you into going all day with out a lunch break when your
agreement allows it. I don't know of any industry that refuses to let
someone take a damn break during the day. I have been hearing a lot of
crap that's been going down and I just cant believe it. I'm floored
on how you pups have let this get out of hand. Run your ass into the
ground, spy on you all day, take your lunch, steal your pay, and
threaten you?  Use your heads!

You have to give some credit to HH for pulling a huge one.  Seeing what
he has done with CSX it reminds me of the story of the emperor with no
clothes.  Harrison is the swindler and the board and investors are the
the foolish emperor.

"There existed an emperor who loved wearing fine clothes and spent all
of his people's money on them. He had a different set for each hour and
was, without doubt, the finest dressed man in the land. 

One day, two swindlers claiming to be weavers entered the Emporer's
city and proclaimed they were capable of making the finest, lightest,
most magnificent cloth the world has ever seen. So extraordinary was
this cloth, it was invisible to anyone who was incompetent or stupid. 

Hearing of the weaver's amazing "talent", the foolish Emporer
thought he could use such cloth to weed out undesirables in his city.
He paid the swindlers an enormous sum of gold and  they set out to
"create" the clothes; knowing they would only need go through the
motions. 

The Emperor sent several advisors to gage their progress and all the
advisors reported the cloth magnificent, not wanting to appear unworthy
for seeing nothing at all; the cloth didn't exist! 

Finally the clothes were "finished", the swindlers already having
counted the gold and jewels they had received. A procession was
arranged to show off the Emperor's new clothes and the entire city
gathered in the center to view them. Having been "dressed" by the
swinglers, who remarked how wonderful he looked, and how light the
cloth appeared on him, he appeared before his people. 

The people, having heard of the weaver's abilities and the cloth's
fictious properties, were amazed and offered thunderous applause to the
now beaming Emperor. None of them were willing to admit that they
hadn't seen a thing; for if anyone did, then he was either stupid or
unfit for the job he held. Never before had the emperor's clothes been
such a success. 

While expressing admiration at their Emperor's new "invisible"
clothes, a small boy cried out... "But the Emperor has no clothes!"

You scratch my back I scratch yours,worked well with my guys.
Supervisors started getting fired for not enough failed audits. My time
as a manager I was instructed to fire an employee,that was just returned
to work from a nervous breakdown. I had two options fire him or be
fired. I gave my notice to rezine,and was threatened that I would never
work in the rr industry again. I put my company phone on the desk and
walked off the property. There is no special treatment for anyone.
These people in the ivory tower are ruthless heartless people. I make
half the money at my new job but have my sanity and dignity.good luck
people. Watch your back and your mates back. It is a shame the.
Companies that hh is involved with comes to people being treated so
unfairly. I hope Karma pays these people a visit one day.

Sounds like you might have received a few failures from this Joe Berry.
Did you deserve it?  Did you run your mouth to him? Egg him on?

Not defending this Berry character but was it at the time when the Nazi
headhunting was going on in Jacksonville? Was it when every single TM
and RF were told if they didn't get at least 25 failures a month they
could start looking for another job in another craft? You have no idea
how bad the heat was on them to get failure rates so the company could
show the lawyers in court that the employees were being trained to work
safely and if they didn't they were reprimanded. 
We had some real good upstanding TM's and RF's in our area who were
god fearing and well respected and hated dishing out the failures. They
thought is was a crock of shit but had no choice. Several of us took
minor failures for these guys just to give them some relief from the
heat. Sounds crazy? HELL YES IT WAS!  We did it because we didn't give
a rats ass and we knew once we had a failure they would move on and keep
us off the radar. You scratch my back and I'LL scratch yours. The
southern region was the one who started the stalking and reporting crap
on the employees. Once someone got a failure they were put on a list and
a target was put on them. When this employee showed up at another
terminal or crossed a division line the word was out that they were
there and to go out and watch their every move.
This crap finally made its way to the Greatlakes but got blown out of
the water when the plan got exposed. The orders for the hits were still
out there and the orders for failures was still being crammed down the
supervisors throats.
No one knows what's going to happen with the new King of the Railroad
in place or how he's going to take over this process of stalk, harass
and destroy the employees for use in the legal system. Don't be an
idiot and think it will stop. Good chance it wont. So if you ran your
mouth or argued to much or even stood your ground for what you thought
was right be careful if you do it again. It might be a mole brought in
by Harrisons lynch mob and you will be sorry as hell!

When a magician gets on stage and makes a rabbit appear and
disappear,the audience goes woh..Hh is the magician and his audience is
the board of directors shareholders and government. A Forman showed me
once how they can create a track that does not exit but in the computer
it does. And hide cars so they are not included in turn over. They have
so many tricks so they can make report look good.

Dragging cars around for nothing wear and tare,extra fuel used. Does not
make sense to us. But for everything to look good on paper makes Hh
shine in the end. It does not have to make sense to us. But when he
reports to shareholders that know nothing about rr industry they eat it
all up and Hh looks like a hero.i have seen them move cars from a yard
.put them in a siding out of town then next day bring cars back to the
yard. So they can show car was not dormant and in service. Which is bs
but not on a report.

Ok , so they dragged them 500 miles to be switched out but did they
drag them right past a yard that used to switch them out and are still
switching cars for other industries right in the same towns and areas?
why the hell run them past a yard that is actively switching and did
those cars in the past 250 miles out of the way just to bring them
back?   This is crazy shit!  Time lost on the cars being delivered to
the customer and extra track miles and times on the cars. How can that
even be considered precision railroading?

Cp would drag cars 500 west to be switched in a main yard and
consolidate it with another train. Then come back east ,and go as Far
East as they can. And they drag cars around so they don't sit longer
than 24 hours. It's like you can have a productive employee or a busy
employee.

Well it looks like that Fat Ass Joe resigned as a manager today. I just
hope the current managers that will be testing him in the future will
deal his Sorry Fat Ass a big dose of Karma. Hopefully he will get fired
for the same chickenshit failures that he dished out for countless
years.

Any one with a brain! 


Can someone please explain to me why you would send a train 250 miles 
past all the industries and yards where the freight is supposed to go
just to have it flat switched out just to turn around and send it right
back to where it came from. What the hell kind of crazy crap is this. We
passed every industry and yard and just laughed our asses off at how
stupid this shit is and wondered if we should have called the customers
as we went by and told them we had their cars but they got to take them
250 miles the opposite direction to switch them out of the train but
they would get them delivered in a couple of days. This is precision
railroading???? I just don't get it!

Transportation rules are ignored by Hh as well as collective agreements.
Hh will do what he wants. By the time someone is able to do anything
about violations he will be long gone. Hh everything is legal till you
get caught. Then no consequences anyways.  I can fire people without

Looks like they finally realized how many of us weren't heading down to
Jax after the move.   

Just posted 16 jobs on the website. 


So all of you Monday morning dispatchers can come and do the real
thing.

Something you should know before you come, the ATDA is the most useless
Union on the damn planet.  And the only people they care about are the
pre-08 dispatchers.   So don't plan on them actually looking out for
you, they will sacrifice the 300 post-08 people to give the 75 pre-08
people something.

When carman inspect a train and bad orders are found. We enter them in
the computer. Myself I kept a copy of bad orders in my book,and
retained them all. If the car should of come off according to aar
rules. The pressure can be put on the supervisor that switching train
will cause delays. Well now the super visor can go in and delete the
bad order as if it never existed.: That is why I always kept a paper
record because if something happened they would try and blame me for
missing it on my inspection. I've seen all the tricks these dumbies
do. They are so scared to answer for a delay. They would rather put
everyone at risk.

People go to work get your pay. Don't worry about the train congestion
or other problems.  Be stupid let the brains of company get the
ulcers,and stressed out. What you want me to do now boss. Fulfil your
collective agreement contract nothing more.  You don't get paid to
make big decisions.
