Parole, don't jump to conclusions I do have a family which I was able
to keep in spite of the railroad I had health insurance before I got to
the railroad and I got it now it's not the only place to get it
Working and CSX sux is not conclusive to a family man I would assume
when you say you retired that you're riding solo as the divorce rates
at the railroad that my terminal were 35 to 40% well above the normal
I'm sure

Is anyone else just sick of this DP power and all the horse shit that
is going on with it.  Every time you turn around you get some damn
bulletin about don't do this and don't do that.  Now this latest one
with the rules that if your on undulating grade you put up the fence
but put it in dynamic before you start. Then release the brakes and
blah blah blah... what the hell happened to the knock down mode if your
independent is applied when your using the dynamics. How can you even
use it when the brakes are applied.  I just don't get this crap. I
hear engineer after engineer say how much they love this shit because
it gives them a smother ride. Well guess what brothers. It aint going
to be worth it if you tear up a train because you didn't follow one of
these insane asinine rules you have to know and cant understand a damn
THE LITTLE TRAILOR IN THE PARKING LOT. Everyone of you better not make
one move out there without reading the books and every single bulletin
rule and have them in your lap before you take off. All of this is
horseshit. I know damn well most engineers are good enough to run a
damn train without these things.  I can guarantee you I will be ripping
one apart before its over because I will be screwing something up they
have written that I either missed or just don't understand.  This
sucks..   Im so ready to take a job with a shortline! Just give me an
damn old fashioned train and leave me the hell alone!

Legal...look up this guys name on google  he will go to any lengths to
get his 5 minutes of fame.  He has shared pictures of a CSX accident in
the Birmingham yard and supply abc/33 40 with his photo credits. On
Instagram he is posting pics of him in the cab and giving his location.
Isnt that a code of ethics no-no. Someone high up isnt doing their job
monitoring social media.   Im sure he has no conscience about who,
where, and how this affects others and how it can destroy others
reputations.  Im with everyone else stir clear of this looney

If this man is making videos of fellow employees and using that
information to have them reprimanded or fired and the company knows
about this you can open a very big can of worms. First, if you can
prove this it needs to be reported to the manager of the hotel that you
are staying in. Who is to say that this person is not taping other
occupants of the hotel that do not work for CSX.  This man's behavior
is no different than stalking. You should also inform corporate lodging
that this is happening and that you do not feel comfortable staying in
the same hotel. You must report his behavior to your ethics committee.
If you can not catch him in action then you must be able to prove that
he in deed is the one who is doing the video taping. CSX is regulated
by a Federal Agency. They are not under their complete control. CSX is
privately owned. They must  follow all Federal, State and Local laws
and regulations. If they willingly allow an employee to violate your
rights of privacy and allow an employee to stalk other employees in
order to entrap them then they are in gross negligence of the law. You
must be able to prove that this employee is the one who is doing the
actual taping and submitting the footage. If you have that proof then
you can take your case outside of CSX and retain your own legal
counsel. It does not matter if you are staying in a hotel or other
lodging that is provided for by CSX. This employee is violating laws
outside of your bargaining agreements and under State laws you have a
right to request protection from harassment while staying in your
lodging. I am confident in stating that you do not have any language in
your bargaining agreement or your contract with CSX that states in order
to be employed by CSX you must agree to be video taped in any lodging
provided by the company by a fellow employee or fellow officer. This is
not the same as your agreement on video cameras in the cab of your
locomotives. Csx will have to come forward and defend their actions if
they have not addressed this situation as you have claimed. I would
think this employee would use common sense and step down from his
behavior if he knows the cat has been let out of the bag. If he has
been recruited by the company to commit this behavior then they are
just as negligent as the employee and can be held accountable and
charged with violations of any applicable laws.

Ive dealt with problem people like this in the past. They keep getting
away with everything, and it gives them a feeling they can do as they
please. But one day they just go to far, and they end up in the lime
light and self destruct. You know the saying give them enough rope and
they will hang them selfs. This is so true!

Hey ethics, 
The yard master is telling the truth.  Im the wife of a person Cade
done this to.
Management hid it and it was reported various times to ethics.  Ethics

guy.  He is a problem child.

Your a liar.  All it would take is one phone call to the ethics
committee about this behavior and this man would be on the street. If
you know about it then others do. If you know and haven't reported it
your just as guilty. Don't believe this is happening. You put his name
out here for all to see so let's see how this goes down now. You got a
grudge against this guy you just brought on the crap.

I am going to bring some light on a situation that is happened in
Birmingham Al. He has been behind getting a few workers fired here and
in a lot of trouble. All need to share it because the company does not
seem to care enough to put a stop to it.  An employee at the Birmingham
 known as Michael Cade Breasseale has a problem videoing his fellow
coworkers in the hotel rooms and on the job. He then shares the video
he has made on his phone with other coworkers to make fun and "fit
in". He and his buddies makes fun of any of you coworkers that
stutters or has any kind of abnormality at all or another color than
himself. Csx is aware and allows this. This really shows how immature
you guys can be.  He represents CSX.  He represents you workers.  He
has no problem downing the company as most of you do.  People like Cade
are snitches, they portrait themselves as your buddy while finding out
on you and running and telling to make himself look good.  He likes to
stir crap between everyone texting and spreading gossip.  If you work
along side M Cade Breasseale in Mobile, Montgomery, or Nashville, be
alert and aware-he is going to video you and send it to a fellow named
Mike Stone (partner in his crime and one of his union buddies that will
snitch you out) If you are in a hotel room please for God sake make sure
your windows..blinds, peep hole and all are where he cant look in on
you. There is a question as to if he is gay or not, why else would he
like to video you guys.  He posts on gay porn websites. Stir clear of
this psycho he is nothing but trouble. He has a problem stalker his
victims and will go as far as following them around on boards and lying
about his placement.  A liability waiting to happen.  Protect yourself
from him!!

Please take some time to bow your heads and say a prayer for the lost
brother and those who work out there everyday in this horrible
environment.  Its a shame that they wont lower the flags for just one
day for a lost brother. They wanted them lowered for the evil HH but
not one day for the backbone that makes this railroad run. God bless
his soul. May he rest in peace and his family find comfort to get them
through this awful time.
