Rule #1 -- Don't get hurt.

    Safety is the first priority. Er, or is it the second, after money.... Or the third after getting the trains out....

It's too bad your not as smart as you think you are. I got news for
you. People need to be afraid of their shadows when any deal is made
with conditions that Money of any kind has to be returned. I was part
of it. I had my orders to stalk and prevent bonus pay outs. I was one
of the many who were given orders to get failures or look at another
craft. I know the shit that goes down and the underhanded tricks that
were ordered and still will be with any agreements that involve money
changing hands. the only protection an employee has is to pay low,stay
in the shadows and don't ask questions. You will be out on a list of
you dont. Remember when everyone was warned not to do any interviews
with the company editors who needed articles for the monthly division 
Flyer because you would eventually be written up for something. Ask
around and see how many people were. There are reasons for the
behaviors and they aren't for the crews benefits. Your gone. Did your
time and got lucky it went well for you. Those who are left know how it
works now and those with half a brain know what needs to be done.

If you cash in your CSX stock you have made money, now if you reinvest
it in a stock that pays a good dividen. It will continue to grow your
in a win win position. You would be surprised after letting it grow for
years how much money you will have. And if you need cash take the
divedens you make. And leave the principle lump sum invested.

Yes I watch the markets, cn cp stock is on its way down now because they
have to replace everything that Hh sold off when he was in charge.
Employees share program was a good deal. People made money, CSX stock
will make gains, buy it being top off with the assets sold not by
generating new revenue.  I see where cp and cn is now, shortage of
equipment employees etc. I would not buy railway stock with all the
risk involved. There are much better stock. If you want a monthly
dividen that pays 14.50 percent here is a ticker  to look at.  FTN

You don't look at the stock market. Do you? CSX is up after beating
the earnings projections. I sold all my CSX last year. Wish I would of
held on to a couple thousand shares. 

When did CSX pay HH $300 million? I know about the $84 million to buy
him out of his CP retirement. That should of never happened. As for the
$300 mil he died before completing his 4 year contract. They don't pay
that up front that was over the life of the contract.

I have to agree with loco go to work do as required go home. I worked in
the yard at cp when Hh was there. They would pull you out of service for
any little thing. So we all did what was required of us nothing more or
less. No favours no or overtime, two managers would park in a truck
with binoculars and watch everyone. It did not matter how careful we
where they found something to pull you out of service for. They the
people in the ivory tower made the big bucks to make decisions. We did
not help them in anyway shape or form. Foote is doing this at CSX and
his methods are going to put CSX back years. Take these people for what
they are thieves, and they will line there pockets at anyoneís expense.
Only do what you are required to do and then go home. I figure you
people have about two more years of this bs.

Of course there are requirements that have to be met. If you get fired
or quit within 3 years you have to pay the money back. You sound like
you are afraid of your own shadow. CSX did the same years ago offered
relocation bonuses. Those that took it did good. Those complaining
about CSX here's a chance to go work for another railroad. If UP is
the same as CSX then it isn't just a CSX problem. Is it?

Let us do a little math.

CSX pays Harrison 300 million while laying off 900 train crew. That 300
million would pay every single employee of that 900 $100,000 a year for
the next 3.33 years. Think about that. You may not have noticed how big
of an effect that would have on CSX... but your brain did.

Harrison takes the money then dies from the stress of realizing he is a
shit snake oil salesman with not a clue about quality or foresight into
understanding what it takes to invest in a company and take care of its
most critical component... its people.

Fast forward to this month when an over worked and tired CSX crew ends
their shift with a main line switch left open which sends an Amtrak
Engineer and Conductor to their deaths and injures over 100 passengers
and the resulting class action lawsuits that will after the lawyers
finish with CSX eat up another 20-40+ million or more not to mention
the millions of dollars in destroyed equipment all of which CSX is
liable for.

All of this of course happening while a saftey system designed to
detect unset switches was being repaired and no one thought to take
precautions to verify anything with no redundant safety systems active.

I believe Harrisons last words were somthing to the effect that all
heretics must be burned including all heretical customers who think
delays that shut down their factories exist.

When shit goes this wrong you need to focus on quality no matter what
it costs.

Do you job right from the top of the pyrimid CSX and all the way down
or vanish into the mist like all the other railroads before you who
also thought debt based money substitute fiat currency was what
mattered most. What you were actually supposed to be taking care of was
a service to society and your people and the preservation and
continuation of a great legacy that you have failed to live up to.

Sadly all of this falls on deaf ears of those in power who seek to burn
heretics in the hope that having less qualified crews and trains will
somehow get everything where it is supposed to be on time without
another disaster.

Loco  20-

2 days???  LIAR!  

Now to something more important! UP hiring and signing bonus.
Read the entire article in wallstreet. If you quit or you are fired
within the 3 year signing agreement with the UP you have to pay back
all the signing bonus. 

Sounds like the same crap CSX tried to pull with the new hires and
their injury free bonus they offered their first year. When the FRA was
notified about it they made them get rid of it. It just encouraged
injured new hires to keep their mouths shut. They changed it to
discipline instead.  Just remember if they over hire the UP will
probably do the same thing. Stalk, discipline and reduce along with
getting some of their money back. What happpened with the UP borrowing
out our guys?

You're a dumbass.  An operator is a skilled trade. It can be used
anywhere in the world in any industry.  Takes years to become an
operating engineer.   A locomotive engineer's FRA cert is shit at
best.  I've trained chimps in two days to run a train.  One cannot
intelligently compare the two.

If other carriers are offering$25000.00 to hire on, this is the standard
fee they give employees to relocate. And they would pay market price for
your house that was sold. So for a recruiting company that is offering
this relocation fee is a good deal. And they are not going to invest
that money in you, just to fire you on there property. When a carrier
canít move a train because they donít have, qualified crews it cost
them millions. A friend of mine was layed off, received a job with
different carrier, and loves it they treat him like gold. And never did
take recall from the company that layed him off.

Kiss my ass loser. If you think being an engines is not a skill your a
loser who didn't pass your runs or your woethless at it and no one
wants to work with you. Anyone who is trained and skilled and gets
certification is a skilled worker. Heavy equipment, back hoe operators
etc...your just a company mole mouth piece on here to distract others
from looking at going elsewhere where the money and the treatment is
better.  You need your arss kicked to the curb.

Hh created the intimidation game  of firing people to get his way. Foote
doing the same thing. Treating employees like they are the enemy cutting
jobs to get the operating ratio down, mothballing and selling equipment.
And not serving customers and there needs. Employees that are fired or
layed off have options to work for other carriers. You are not moving a
train without the proper certifications. Like cn and cp the people that
where layed off found other work. Lots did not return, they need people
to run the trains yesterday and they donít have crews to do this. The
training of new people takes time,now all of a sudden qualified people
are important again. They will train many but only a portion will stick
it out after getting a taste of rr life. The stock at CSX is not
climbing like they had planned and I feel Hh pr plan is going to be
stale not bullish. If you are a qualified conductor or engineer take
that job at another carrier and donít look back at CSX.

I just read that BNSF & UP are offering $25,000 signing bonuses to
attract railroaders from other railroads. They have worker shortages
due to increased business. It didn't mention locations.

Certification?  That's a joke.  A conductor or engineer IS NOT A SKILL.
That certification is worthless.

With what you people are going threw at CSX with Foote cutting so many
jobs to manipulate the numbers. You all have certifications that is the
same as having money in the bank. If you are layed off from CSX. There
are lots of railroads in North America that would love to have you
working for them. Foote is going to pay down the road when they donít
have trained crews to run the trains. Watching that happen here in
Canada. You will go threw some rough times but will overall win the
fight and be more appreciated.
