APE

Let me set the record straight. Your comment that you are unsure if you
can have your cell phone in your grip even if it is turned off is not a
correct assumption. For one, the company requires that you have a
secondary number if you need to be contacted via another phone. An
example would be if you were staying at your away from home terminal in
a hotel. If you are out to dinner, lunch, etc. they have to be able to
contact you. Crews can not be expected to stay by their phones in the
hotel as soon as they are rested. Many stay in the hotel several hours
if not 24 after they are rested. Second, you need an emergency contact
number. If you have a family and someone is injured or needs emergency
assistance then you need a way to be contacted when you are not at
home. If you are on a local job the same rule applies. The dispatcher
is to contact you via the radio and you need a way to contact your
family. Third, I have been told by numerous railroaders that the CMC
calls them on their cell phones in their hotel rooms instead of calling
the front desk and having the call transferred to the room. I am
assuming the callers have learned that the crews may not be in their
rooms and it saves them the time of having to make a second call. If
any manager tell you that you can not carry a phone with you in way,
shape or form then you need to immediately contact your union
representation and file a safety charge for not allowing you to be able
to be contacted or be able to contact any of your family members quickly
if an emergency situation arises. You also need to let them know that
they are not allowing you to be able to be away from your hotel rooms
without the fear of being miscalled. Everyone is well aware that train
schedules are never correct and "GHOST" trains are called out of the
blue. No one should expect any railroader to stay in his/her room by
the phone just because they are rested. If you have any issues with
this it would not hurt to talk to an attorney and find out what your
rights are in regards to your safety and your families ability to
contact you. You are not in an office environment. Can you imagine if
they came out with a law that all truck drivers could not have a cell
phone in their possession while driving their trucks. They had to find
one to use when they arrive at their destination? Im sure CSX has more
common sense than that. At least I would hope so.

Eugene doesn't care about intermodal.   He's ran off plenty of
buisness.    He closed Caskey Yard and put a stop to ID runs.   He
doesn't give two shits about 10 years down the road only the now.  He
knows he won't be here anyway.

Willard is now switching trailer trains, the eastbound class yard is
being shut down entirely, rumored to get sold to wheeling. North
Baltimore closing, for real, selling cranes, or maybe moving them to
South Carolina. New castle getting 30-40 million in upgrades to handle
more freight. Good luck.

Have been through a lot of these types of things.
If a person is going to report violations, they'd better get their
ducks in line per se; be correct, have documented proof, etc. Know for
sure.  Have seen very many penalty claims and/or regulation violations
submitted that were just about plain worthless.  Most won't do it all
because they're afraid of having a target on their back. Yeah, it can
be a chore to do it all correctly & it takes time; but that is what it
takes to beat the co. - it can be done - it has been many times before
- & the RRs hate that.

FRA!!!!

We all know you read this site everyday! So when you read this you are
being made aware that rules are being violated. Yeah, cant prove you
read it so cant charge you for not reporting to Washington but you know
what right!
Ha (poster) is 100% right. At least once a week you have to LIE on your
hours of service reports in order to get paid. You cant tell the truth.
A lot of times you cant report where you really were when your done
with your work or the real times that you did the job. Dead heads and
recrews are some of the worst, If you get 2 tickets(frickin miracle)
you run into problems with that too. One little trick they play to
screw up double tickets is to put a one minute difference in between
the off duty time on one ticket and on duty time on the next. The HOS
report screen wants to know what you did for that one minute and you
cant get it to take. Freezes the tickets up for days sometimes until
you can get it fixed. No one believes these crew callers don't know
what they are doing. They also don't put Taxi(deadhead) tickets in a
lot of time so you can show were you were working and how you were
transported. What if we were in a wreck in route to a train or from a
train? No dead head authority to report,

Now to the ON BOARDS! Management is back to making crews complete the
OBWO after they are OUTLAWED!  I remember reading an email that YOU PUT
OUT when they started using these devices. You specifically stated the
crews were not to do these reports after they were outlawed because it
is performing duties for the company and it was a violation of HOS! It
stated it was to be given to a supervisor to complete. You need to
recirculate this notice and refresh the memories of management.  With
the new bulletin out that takes effect on the 17th on restriction of
electronic devices, no one should be using this device after they are
outlawed. It also said that quick tie up of tickets was all that was
allowed when you were outlawed.


CREWS!!!!!  Quit doing the OBWO after you are outlawed. Your violating
hours of service and using an electronic device that belongs to the
company after you are outlawed. If they threaten you for not finishing
it for them CALL THE FRA AND REPORT IT! Wait to tie up your ticket.
Don't tie up and then finish it. Don't put your time off as 12 hours
either. You put the TRUTH! When it ask who ordered you to stay on duty
after you were outlawed and why to tell the truth! Say you were forced
to complete the OBWO device for management. Quit being chicken sh...
and start standing up for what's right. You want this target crap to
stop then start banning together and do what's right!
