I've been visiting this site for a long long time. I always use to
enjoy NoMo's annual Brown Banana Award for the biggest POS CSX
managers on the system.  Starting now, you can make your nominations
for who you think is the lowest of all lows, this is based on
Chickenshit failures, having the backbone of a Jellyfish, Habitual
Liar, Arrogant, Morally Bankrupt, etc...  after all nominations are
reviewed by other posters a decision will be mad as to who is deserving
of being the Biggest CSX lowlife on the system.  I'll start off by
making my nomination, this one is gonna be hard to beat boys and girls,
 Drum rolls please....Trainmaster Berry.

Racketeering is a serious crime, report all unethical conduct between
management and corrupt union officers. When your union officers is
getting claims paid while staying at home, the alarm bells should

Obama said " You didn't build this" the one single statement I
actually agreed with.
Originally government gave land, money and military backing taking
peoples land. 
Robber Barron's.
Harrison is just a Barron set to do the will of government.
What happens to the boards opinion of Harrison if those who really make
CSX work takes a walk even with a no strike rule?
It's your guys future.

Suck it up some Dis Gruntled Conductor.  When they get all the new
technology in place & operating the way they want it to (& how the
government will allow), you probably won't be making any long pool
trips at all.  Might end up not being a railroad employee period.   
Sure wouldn't hurt to try to be supportive of your union(s) & the
politicians they (and you) depend on for help.

While i share the anger with this company I'm more pissed with our
union representation at present.  Things are slow right now but the UTU
refuses to cut any turns, trying to keep those dues coming in !, so we
are working 1 time a week on a long pool! It doesnt matter any more
weather youve been out here 1 year or 20 seniority means nothing other
than holding a job.  Pools, yard jobs, extra boards are all paying the
same thing. 
NO bullshit, rest day turned off, worked once last week, and once this
week.  1600 for the half working a long pool. I dont want to see anyone
furloughed any more than any one else but this is bullshit.  I paid my
dues, furloughed multiple times, moved all over the system, etc. and
this is un called for.  
For all that reply, we're overworked i want to know where you work and
I'll be there next week

IN ACTUAL THEORY, HAVING ALL EMPLOYEES WORK ALL JOBS WOULD BE BETTER,
SINCE THEY SHOULDN'T CALL YOU 99 OUT IF THERE ARE SEVERAL OTHER
EMPLOYEES HIGHER ON THE LIST OF ALL EMPLOYEES. BUT WHAT ABOUT THE ADA.
REASONABLE ACCOMMODATION? WHAT IS REASONABLE FOR A YARDMASTER WITH A
SORE ARM? THE NORMAL STORY WOULD BE TO PROVIDE HIM WITH AN
ASSISTANT.URGENT NEED FOR A CONDUCTOR ON Q123? CALL THE YARDMASTER.
DOES HE HAVE BACK TROUBLE THAT LETS HIM DO THE YARDMASTERS JOB BUT NOT
CARRY A KNUCKLE? REASONABLE ACCOMMODATION. CALL A TRACKMAN OR
TRAINMASTER TO ASSIST, HE CAN DO HIS WORK LATER. WHAT IF BRIAN EDWARDS
IS THE TM, CAN HE CHANGE A KNUCKLE? DOES THAT LEAD TO A FELA CLAIM?
LOTS OF INTERESTING SCENARIOS.  AGAIN, I'LL BET A LOT OF JAX FOLKS ARE
FRANTICALLY GETTING TUITION ASSISTANCE, JUST LIKE AT CON RAIL PHILLY
WHEN THEY SAW THE END. ARE YOU MAKING PLANS?

Posting from Korea.   There is no bulletin.  We have received only an
email.

Here it is.

Obviously, everyone has seen the news and heard that we have a new
administration in place leading our company.  With that comes changes
that will be implemented by our new CEO.  
 
That being said, we know there will be new operating practices put into
place, and our jobs, from the top down, will be to adapt to the new
regime and comply with those new practices put into place.  Some new
practices have been communicated to us already, and you can be sure
there will be many more to come.  It has been made abundantly clear
that there is no room for debate with the new practices, and if there
is any deviation from the plan that has been laid out, it will be dealt
with immediately to ensure compliance.  I think it is imperative that we
not let ourselves be used to make an example for others who choose not
to comply. 
 
One of the changes that has been communicated is that we will have
employees work full shifts, and is effective immediately.  There will
be no “early quits” allowed.  What this means for us in the Operations
Center is this:  Dispatchers will not work less than 8 hours. If this
means that we have everyone on a particular shift scan in at 15 minutes
prior to their shift (0645, 1445, 2245) in order to comply, that is what
we will do.  Additionally, those employees will not scan out prior to 8
hours from the time they scanned into the machine.  Employees who are
posting will also be required to work an entire 8 hour shift.  We are
still responsible for complying with FRA Hours of Service regulations,
so make sure that your scan times enable you to remain in compliance. 
 
This is not an office-specific policy.  This is company-wide and we
have been instructed that there are no options regarding compliance. 
We will comply.  The decision has been made from the top to implement
this policy, and instructions have been passed down throughout the
company to put it in place. 
 
In summary, dispatchers will not work less than 8 hours when scheduled
to work.  This includes working a desk or posting a position.  Please
do not be that person that challenges this by not being scanned into
the STARS system for less than 8 hours.  There will be no flexibility,
no excuses, no latitude with this policy.  If there are any questions,
please feel free to contact me, any DTO, or STO **** ******

Conductor 30+:
               you are right. managers promoted from the ranks are
often the worst class of employee. Realizing that they aren't good
railroaders and incapable of performing work in the civilian sector or
effectively running a part time real life job, they devote themselves
to cracking down or harassing normal employees in the fond hope this
will earn them merit with higher managers. Many managers go back to
craft to be decent human beings......but the worst stay on.
