To answer your question about the train changes it's going on
everywhere. This Foote character is doing the same roll the dice
railroading HH did. One week you pick up the next you set off. One week
you got one train symbol then it changed the next. We went through
destroying and doing away with yards and played with hump yards. Now
their chopping trains in half, rerouting, changing blocks around. Have
no idea what your doing. The work orders are a joke as ususl. Missing
pick up and set off info. Nothing unusual with this outfit.


TM had the nerve to jump our asses because we didnt stop at an industry
on the way to the home terminal and get cars THAT WERE NOT ON THE WORK
ORDER. Bitched we should have asked someone if the work needed to be
done. Asked him why we would challenge a system bulletin that was black
and white. No gray area. Not our fault the company screwed things up.
Quit blaming the crews for deparmental problems. Ordered us to check
with dispatch for now  on. Who the hell is he to override a system
bulletin from HQ. This shit never ends. Next time I'm calling
operating rules department and finding out what they want us to do with
this conflict. Sure it will be a pass the buck answer. Same crap just a
different day!

Fellow brothers 

Still can't get anything out of the LC's. Their just as clueless as
us or lying to keep us in the dark. I think they know shit is coming
and it's going to stick us in the ass.  Their scared we're going to
raise hell and strike against them. Stop paying the full dues. We
don't have to pay all of them.  Opt out of the legislative portion.
They need to talk to us. What the hell do we pay them for.  No one has
a damn clue what is going down behind the closed doors. It's no
different than paying a lawyer to work for you and he never returns
your calls.  BULLSHIT!

Foote and the A team do not give two hoots about CSX. He is getting his
orders from mantle ridge. So if your an employee expect the companies
decision making is to benefit mantle ridges share holders. As an
employee you are just a pawn in this game,the company could care a less
about any of your grievances or working conditions. If the Foote A team
can eat your lunch they will, to them they could care a less if your a
good employee or bad employee. You are a deficit  to the company. You
are working for a group that cares about one thing mantle ridge and
themselfs. The time they are with CSX donít expect anything else. If
you can avoid the job cuts your doing good. After this raid on CSX by
this group and only after they leave CSX, will there be change. It took
about seven years after Hh left cnrail that change is starting to
happen. My gut tells me that Foote is going to fail rolling out Hh
plan, and getting positive results he will crash and burn or board of
directors will try and can him.

Hh and Foote plan is to streamline CSX by running north to south with
the hot traffic. It looks good on paper for the share holders. And
exclude any branchline or intercepting lines. That involve a drag train
that has to do a lot of switching and going out of the way for the
customer. These lines and customers are profitable and where the bread
and butter for the railways. But the volume is not there to get get
fast huge profit. By taking these lines out of there plan. They donít
have to show any delays equipment or crew issues. They just want to
present the nice stuff to the share holders. Drive the share price up
and get the hell out. Because the plan they want  present to the share
holders will not hold up for long because they are not generating
customer revenue. The only thing falsely supporting that they are
making a profit is cutting staff and selling assets. And that will not
last long doing that. They know that to continue making profit you have
to retain the customers you have and getting new customers. You donít do
this by selling your equipment and rail lines. Cn rail is finding this
out today to stay with customer demand. They have to spend millions of
dollars to stay in business. Hh and Foote sold all cn assets that they
could to get share price up. Then sell the stock and move to the next
victim company  They made millions at the price of turning cn into a
skeleton railway from the big company it once was. Now they are
repeating these practices at CSX.

Like I said Foote is a bean counter. He is getting his ideas from some
so called experienced manager planners. What ever they roll out, there
plans are going to be full of holes. Then it is back to the drawing
board. Kick back watch the gong show, because lots of screw ups coming.

Political blah blah 

The damage is done. The white house is full of crap from the potus on
down. Now blah blah till the cows come home. It's not going to change
a damn thing Foote and his money hungry greedy little bench men are
going to do. You think they give a rat's but what trump or his cronies
are doing this morning. It's business as usual and that means chopping
us to death and screwing our eyeballs out. Conforming his little flock
of sheep. Send a letter to congress. See how far that gets you! We're 
going to lose our work protection,seniority and any quality of life we
have left. No job choices. Higher union dues. Longer hours. Whipped
like a mule. What for? Some idiots who think an hourly rate quote looks
good on paper in front of their faces. A bunch of retards who can't see
a bait and switch scheme right in front of their faces. Type of men that
buy a new car with the company discount with dealer cuts and a coupon
then after they add the wheel tax, top coat, shipping tax, etc...end up
paying full cost anyway! Unions going to get rich off this and have less
claims to deal with because our rights to work with some control will be
gone. This is gonna be the biggest mistake union members have ever made
in this business if we let it happen.

of the rail road he was proud to have gone to hunter camp and feels CSX
is on the right track I know his past he come from the crafts and was
known as one of the top laziest in his craft and now he a manager and
truly thinks CSX is doing the rite thing what a ass kisser I wonder how
he will feel when they show how much he is needed down the road and
falls victim to the greed of mantle ridge I'm sure he will have a
change of heart just to show you what is left in management is not

Well they're smart guy who do you think pays the taxes that's right
you and me so the next time some dumbasses from the union come in and
start talking about taxing the company all they're talking about doing
is tax and you and me. Production Cost Plus profit equals sales price
when they say we're going to tax the company they're just making you
and me pay more

Cn was Hh first slash and burn rr in Canada. Sold everything he could
cut lots of jobs. Ran the existing equipment into the ground, bad order
cars where never taken off trains. Had the highest fatalities under his
watch. Major derailment month after month. Today ceo replaced they have
to spend millions of dollars to go back to the way the company was ran
before Hh destroyed it. Cn and cp has left so much money on the table
by not shipping grain. Now the goverment will force them to. CSX
employees this is how it is going to go down at CSX. Because will even
get worse the way your network of tracks are laid out. Donít lose focus
who Foote really works for mantle ridge. My point there are going to be
many mistakes and screw up by this management team before they realize
they will have to go back to the basics. Serving customers and looking
for new business. Foote never mentions new business. Because cutting
everything he canít take on new business. Not away to run a railway.

To Foote,
                Who did you think elected our new CEO?
The answer is none other than the board itself, which is run by Paul
Hilal and Mantle Ridge. Theyíre not going anywhere for 3 1/2 more
years. Sorry boss.

Reading article in trains magazine,Hh checked out they put Foote in ceo
job. Not really the right fit for ceo. He is following Hh plan to slash
and burn CSX. But they said he really does not have a clue going forward
with existing customers and new customers. It said all departments have
been cut so bad that footed office staff is just calling customers
telling them shipping prices are going up. I think this Foote is just
buying himself time. Till the board of directors figure out he is just
a fraud. So hang on folks donít get to use to new changes just yet.
Because there will be many changes before someone at the top gets it
right. He keeps telling investors all the more cuts he is going to
make. And how he is going to stream line CSX. The investors eat all his
BS up for now. But if things donít start paying up he has to go , or
investors will go elseware

I was pulled OOS for alleged Fmla misuse over Christmas.   I've 
recently been marked back up and working.   CSX  kangaroo court found
me guilty of misuse but reinstated me with time served.   I did not
sign a waiver.   I'm posting this because I know some were pulled out
and were terminated.    If I'm found guilty just like my co worker. 
Why are some reinstated and others let go?  My understanding is there
are multiple law firms working on bringing suit over this matter.   I
for one will seek reimbursement decided by a court for their blatant
disregard of my protected leave.  My lawyer and I have decided to file
suit against CSX and multiple individuals.
