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....

I was the target of a bunch of Generation X CEO,s who know  nothing of
how to operate a business.  They are more concerned with stuffing their
pockets rather than work with the workers who do their job. After I turn
60 they treated me like was something from hell. I am not surprised.
They did everything to me to force me into a corner and stab me in the
back and out the door. The generation X brats (under 55) running the
company have no respect for anybody but themselves. This explains why
CSX is such turmoil, When the previous generation ran it was slightly
better place to be. The was not as bad to work with at least they
respected for their work ethics. If had been three years older I would
made my out at 65.  I feel bad for the younger guys who have wives,
children, homes and Pick-Up trucks they are going to hurt if they get
booted out. The hand writing is on the wall for most employees stand by
for the big ram unless your the bosses boy looks they are going out.
this looks like the picture for the poor working fool.  The Gen X Me
kids whine and cry like a bunch of 5 year olds when something happens
complete with runny noses. The upper management need to grow up and be
responsible adults like there grand parents. Remember CSX will go down
the same track as Penn Central if do not know this read your history,
Penn Central went tits up

Trainmasters are going to be cut next. Study is showing that the
Yardmasters are doing a great job moving crews and trains. Company will
save millions on this move. Trainmasters are proven to be useless. This
will take place by 2020 or soon after.

Only work the hours you are required to by your contract not a minute
more. Let the phone ring off the hook looking for there important
loads. Let HQ tell the customers it will get there some day. But for
now we have to cut staff to get operating ratio down. Ceo and the board
of directors should be in the nut house for shock treatment.

What Ass-Clown would sale their vacation for 1.5X?   What dipshit is
going to stay marked up the entire summer?  What simpleton would admit
Fmla abuse?  What kiss ass believes the horseshit Ed Harris is putting
out?  What dumbass pays over 100 bucks to their union? What piece of
shit lays off Union every weekend? What moron moves out of state for
this shithole?

Csx you want to buy back my vacation and personal days, I get sick for 3
days and have a Dr. Note and still get points, caps on personal days,
and you wonder why people go out and get FMLA..Maybe if you gave
employees an incintive for not marking off like maybe starting with
negative points , banking negative points to use for emergencies...
thanks to the unions for always looking out for us everytime the
company makes changes why do we have a contract if you allow so many
side letters  and bulletins to change shit.

Operations 

Jesus people! Do you ever take one minute to look at what the hell is
going on out here!! Just recrewed a train that was profiled with 2
engines and when we got to the recrew location it had 8! Then when we
got it in the tmci screen had one engine listed 3 times and 1 was
missing. Just how in the hell does your info get so screwed up. I just
can't understand for the life of me how this company stays afloat. If
the banks kept records the way you do our economy would be the worst in
the world.  God people, just get it together.  Just do some damn
homework. Quit embarrasing yourself. You have to know our family
members know this stuff and share it with neighbors, friends and co
workers. For the love of god, get it together!

Moody Law Firm, How is this not Fmla interference?  It's time for a
class action lawsuit for all who have been on Fmla. 

CSX corporation, CSX transportation, Foote, Harris, and Johnson should
be listed as defendants in the lawsuit and whoever else took an active
role in this outrage.

You're a bitch.  Enjoy your time in the Spotlight.  You're on limited
time.  You will be replaced with the next puppet within 24 months.  

Keep your insincere thank you on the gateway for working Mother's Day.
  There wasn't no more layoffs in 2017 than this year.   Your system
notice fell on deaf ears.  There's not a railroader one in HQ.

CSX 
Talked to the trip optimizer help desk and asked them why they cant
Call us on the radio when we have problems but the PTC help desk can.
They said PTC is a federal mandated program and the TO is not. They
wouldn't say anything else. Doesn't Take a rocket scientist to figure
out what they were getting at. YOU DON'T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT IT. why even
have it up and running then. The rep also said they know we can't use
our phone's on the engines to call them so it is imperative we report
not using it because of this reason. 
Another interesting fact....all of the sudden all Work orders for
trains running on the st.Louis line from Avon yd to Roselake are not
being submitted. Every train has to be built by the TO department. Why
is that? Because you know we can't call them on the engine and there
is no contact with them on the radio so we just got to run without it.
Admit it. The program sucks and you know it. It runs under track speed
all the time when it doesn't need to. Your full conservancy numbers
arent worth the loss of track speed.  Someone is deliberately screwing
with the input of workorders. Get rid of it! I'm tired of reporting
issues with the damn thing. You know it sucks. Just get rid of it!

You sound frustrated about the union. Well with all what you have said,
I was fired and held out for 3.5 years. The union put a case together
for me to present to the arbitrator, the company had all there big guns
to fight me and the union. I won my case and was returned to work with
full seniority. It took time and money to put my case together, I donít
think a law firm would of done as good a job as the union. The union
saved my life by getting me back to work. And I retired last year. The
unions first priority is to get people back to work that where fired.
Other issues are secondary. There are so many grievances in the system
that they have to be fought in order of importance and what affects
members as a whole. All as I can say is Iím forever grateful to the
union reps. That got my job back and my union dues was worth every
penny. When your knee deep in shit feels good when some one cares
enough to pull you out and wash you off. You could be next employee
fighting for your job back.

One thing a ceo knows if they donít produce they get fired in most case.
But at there rate of pay it does not affect them just there ego and
repritation. And they can leave a company upside down. Which in most
cases takes years to be what it once was. They can do a lot of damage
to a company in a short time. And the board of director for CSX seem
clueless. The proof is hiring a half dead ceo like Hh and giving him
the pay package they did. Company policy no insider trading, but I
think it is rampant giving partners in crime inside information so they
know where to put there chips. A lot of the craziness will go when Foote
leaves. And the new ceo is going to need cooperation of employees to
repair CSX from the hedge fund gangs raid.

LOCO

I get so sick of hearing you guys come on here and spout off about
going to meetings and getting involved. I was a rep. I know what it is
like to try to get one damn day off to do something you need done with
your personal life let alone spend time at a union meeting. The fact is
this BRO!!! The unions are well aware of what is happening out here. Its
their damn job to know. They are paid for that service. We are forced
into a union shop through the railroad labor act but the Federal
government controls how the unions organize and function with laws that
protect members from misrepresentation and failure to represent to the
fullest extent. The union reps and international reps will sit on their
asses and say they cant get involved until the members come forward with
complaints. I have personally witnessed these conversations. This is
total bullshit and they know it. It is their jobs to step in when they
see their members are being abused and their contracts raped. NO ONE
HAS TO COME FORWARD!  It is their job to handle all abuse. They are
well aware of it. You want something done you have to raise a stink and
get the media involved. They have no choice then to come out from under
the Carriers desk. THey have to do what they are paid for. Kick backs
and pay offs have made our unions corrupt and have made them climb in
bed with management. Going to meetings is not going to do a damn thing.
What will make a change is going after our unions for failing to
represent in a fair and timely manner. Union meetings are a damn joke.
Its the squeaky wheel that gets attention. Its the people who start a
stink and draw attention to the unions failures that get things done.
Its the people who make them look like they got egg on their faces that
get results. Its high time we clean house at the upper level of the
unions.
Ask yourself one question... when was the last time you saw any rep
from the international or field rep for organizing at your terminal.
How many times last year did you see them show up and talk to the
people. Let CSX know they are alive and well. Bet you never saw a
single one!  Too damn scared to get out in the fields and make the
rounds and show of support. That's what your paying for BRO. A bunch
of no shows!

At head office you have all these suits running around knocking heads
high fives. They donít know what they are doing but as long as the
stock goes up they feel they are on the right track. But the day is
coming that there spread sheets will not get a train out of the yard.
Then the panick starts managers getting fired etc. And when other
railroad hire all the people they cut, they will be screwed. And then
they will fast track managers and IT people to run the trains. Then the
scrap metal will pile up from the wrecks. Stay tuned folks the shit will
hit the tracks.

I retired last year had to get out stress big time. Best thing I did but
like a lot of railroader 35 years of service took its toll on the body.
Waiting for back and shoulder surgery. The older the worker the easier
it is to injure yourself. If you get pain in body parts donít ignore it
try and find out what is wrong before it turns into something worse.
Work safe people get assistance if you need extra help.

I love all you guys because we are all in the same box car, but bitching
won't do anything.  WE ARE THE UNION, not the people who represent us! 
If you are unhappy,go to your meetings, bond with your people, and do
something about it.   Yes the new management at CSX is running the
place into the ground, the same way they did at the CP.  But the stock
price is going up, and thats all they care about.  It isn't going to
get better, its going to get worse, so do something about it!

Running short staffed adding stress lack of rest. Incompetent people
giving instructions is just an accident waiting to happen. Trump has
lowered the unemployment numbers big time. The biggest problem for all
these companies is staffing. Then they have to be trained. Trust me the
railroads are going to be competing  for people. The ones that cut staff
are a blessing for other railroads because they pick up trained people.
It is going to be a win win for railroad workers as the work pool gets
smaller and smaller.

The railroad ran well till Hh came along they cut so much staff but
wanted the same production. People even where forded to work threw
there brakes etc. Then management had to get out of the office and do
the field work 7 days a week 12 to 16 hours a day. I seen many manager
resign over it. They only called people back when they had no choice.
It all came to a head after four years of psr. Now they have to put all
that money back into the company that they took out. And now ceo trying
to make peace with staff after years of abuse. In the end the employees
win and get it back. Short term gains for the share holders. Long term
problems for the company,
