The award for being the "Worest trainmasters in the Huntington
division" goes to  Shiloh Campbell and David Benson.  To achieve this
award these individuals had to show how dumb that they really are and
they have No respect from the employees. They have truly lost focus on
the real world. The hatered from the employees proves the lack of
people and management skills. True idiots.

Michael Kribbs ---The railroad/state/Feds cover this up as usual? I
figure they told the tv station what the railroad wanted the tv station
to hear. The truck driver should be filing suit on the railroad for fear
of death and the cops for false ticketing.

People other than railroaders read this site. Your comment that you
made 94 without a college degree insinuates that we are lucky we get
paid(or YOU)that much because we are not as entitled as a person with a
college degree. I know a lot of people who have college degrees that are
lazy, worthless human beings and don't work near as hard as we do and
are paid the same amount. Just because a person has a college degree
doesn't make them better or more qualified than others who have been
educated by time and experience. No doubt in my mind that a lot of snot
nosed college educated kids who think they were entitled wouldn't last
a year out here doing what we do. It take a certain kind of person to
last out here for years. Not one or two until they find something with
better working conditions.   Yeah, I don't have a college degree but
you can bet your bottom dollar every dime I have made is well deserved
and well earned. 

YEAP...Aint got one of them ther fancy paper diplomas sayin Im educated
smarter cause I spent years readin fancy books but I got experience and
a lot of worn years, blisters and 2 raised up kids and deserve
everything the company man is payin me!

BOXCAR, Did you even Read MATH's post? or is this the same person?

I have worked in the yard.   I have sat on the road for hours.  I have
spent 14 out of my 16 years on an extra board somewhere.

He is bitching about being away from home and making $18.69 an hour.
(per se)  

I'm pretty sure the yard and locals make more than $18.69 an hour.

Factories pay more?  Go work there.


I do feel sorry for you. (trainmasters watching, long hours, held away,
chiefs not deadheading when needed)  

But if this guy is bitching about pay, I have no sympathy for him. 
Period.

DISPATCHER

Your frickin kidding right? You suggesting the road guy go to the yard?
Yard doesn't pay squat compared to the road jobs. In fact conditions
are worse. Most road guys get on and ride. Yard men have to stand out
in it all day or night, all weather conditions and then have
supervisors breathing down their necks for production! Might get days
off but you sacrifice the pay for it. Same dues, medical etc. As for MW
or signal, they got it just as bad. On call all hours 7 days a week and
little pay for the hard labor. Don't know how good their union is in
getting what they get screwed out of, but if it is as bad as T&E god
help them. Your union mr dispatcher aren't you? How hard is it for you
to get your claims paid!

Go work in the yard or transfer to the mw or signals side.  You need to
help yourself because no one else will.

Conductor 10-20

Last trip from on duty time to hotel and marked off was 11Hrs 45
minutes
Hotel stay on company time NOT MY OWN was 13 hours

On duty time again to time off was 9 hrs 10 minutes.
Total hours working consumed by the company...33hrs and 55 minutes

Give them the 55 minutes and lets just make it 33 hours
Pay for the trips was $617.00
$617.00 divided by 33hrs is  $18.69 cents
Do you know how many jobs pay 18 bucks an hour. A HELL OF ALOT. Most
decent factories pay this or better. 
Yeah the pay isn't bad but its not alway's good enough to put up with
the constant violations of our agreement and the attendance crap such as
the guy posted because they don't trust your doctor. Its not worth the
phone wringing all night because they don't have anyone to work
because they ran them off! It isn't worth the crew callers playing
games and being unprofessional as hell on the phone or the supervisors
acting like they are god and bullying crews with their verbal threats.
Guessing you never had some new TM who's trying to make a name in
Jacksonville or get in the click at work try and bust you on some
stupid petty rule that he didn't know in the first place! BUT WE STAY!
YOU KNOW WHY??? BECAUSE WE NEED THE JOB AND THE MEDICAL INSURANCE!
We give them our lives and usually don't even see our first born.
OH and don't forget, that $617.00 bucks is BEFORE TAXES, UNION DUES,
MEDICAL DUES AND THE TIER 1 AND TIER 2 IS TAKEN OUT.LETS NOT FORGET OUR
401K IF WE CAN AFFORD IT!  WE ALL LOSE AT LEAST 34% of our check after
they take out union or medical. So don't act like they pay us so much!
 We earn every dime we make and deserve it. 
And as for not having a college education, I consider having to take 9
hours of rules test and a face to face class for 2 days every year part
of my education. I consider FRA certification as part of the  education
process. Same thing a teacher has to do every year. Checking for new
bulletins and updating all the changes that are made.
READ...READ.....READ
Bet you didn't know that all the courses that we take and the new
hires take is equivalent to 6 hours of credit in any transportation
course you take in a college. Don't believe me call Cincinnatti state
and ask them about their transportation program!
Guess you have been cutting yourself short!

SHIT!!! I just realized... I almost worked a 40 hour work week in 2.5
days!!!!Holly Crap!

I like how csx comes up with an attendance policy for having a drs
excuse to stay out of trouble so when you produce such drs excuse they
Deny it saying they won't except it cause it doesn't specify
symptoms.  So I guess when you get put on new meds and you don't know
how you will react to them you need to go to work cause its the safe
thing to do. Yes I am being harassed for this very thing. And now csx
is coming up with a new notice so the idiots in Jacksonville FL can
come up with new ways to get us. I think Micheal ward should be put out
on his butt for being an idiot and for being a set righteous sob

Reply to "true story", you are pretty much correct. The way you work
against that is to spend less than your income, work closely with your
wife and family, and try to have a plan "b" for another job. This
could be using the free tuition program that they ENCOURAGE in JAX and
DISCOURAGE elsewhere, leaving local managers the impression they should
actively frown on your ambitions. OR, it could be wedging in time to
learn welding, run a part time business overhauling brakes or building
decks, or something else that gives you a parachute, even if the
landing is rough. Remember, on an hourly basis your pay is not that
great, although in total it is very good from time to time.Multiple new
vehicles, 3 super cell$$$ phones, big cable bills, eat out all the time,
casual about money, etc. Does NOT Work!!
