Time to hold the utu accountable.  They either start working for us and
do something tangible or we all switch unions.  Let's give them till
June or we all switch.

Guys i know everyone has reasons for taking calls and doin what they
need to do weather it be to say out of a yard u dont know well, or just
work somthing ur more comfortable with. But this is dividing and
conquering at its finest, i am a conductor and will stand with any
engineer when it comes to standing up for and fighting for better
conditions and rules, and i cant say i dont know of any engineers that
wouldnt do the same. Stay focused, Stand together on our one uniting
issue, being uprooted over worked and misused, never forget we are
trained professionals, that do what most normal people can not, it
takes a railroader to understand that, to any non railroader no offense
to ur profession u just cant understand. We stand side by side wacth
each others backs we see each other more than our familys most of the
time, we fight and get pissed but still get the work done together. Mis
placed energy will be waisted vent bicth and yell get it out and then
step back and lets roll on together.

Yes you will pull into the terminal,a manager will download the
locomotive to see if you where playing games to delay getting into
town. You will get off and go switching in the yard till your time is
up. What the company wants is bang for there buck. And if your caught
leaving the property one minute before your time is up your fired.

Its going to work because our unions are worthless and don't stand for
anything ever. Ive been doing this for 24 years and i can tell you that
csx will do what it wants no matter what, the unions don't have a say
period. They put on a good show to make it look like they are earning
their dues money but in reality it is all show, the company will have
its way. Even with firings the union is not why you get your job back,
you get your job back because the company doesnt want to pay to replace
employees every week. Imagine the employee turnover if when someone got
fired that was it. It's all for show folks!

Ape 

Not going to matter. The super pools are coming. Exb will be a thing of
the past. Be no distinction between yard and road jobs. Only problem
will be getting everyone remote qualified unless Foote does away with
them. It's coming. With hourly rate there will be no trip rates or job
limits. You will go anywhere and everywhere for 12 hours. Use you like a
step and fetch dog. Might handle a road train, jump on a local then
finish up in the yard. It's coming. Watch. Union's will be right on
board with it. If your a train rider you better get in shape. Your days
of riding the rails are coming to an end.

With the changes that csx has gone through and will go through, anyone
that does anymore than bare minimum shame on you. If you take calls
that you don't have to, shame on you. We need to preserve what we have
and helping the company is not the way right now. You don't have to
work any assignment that is not covered by what your board is
responsible for.

I still dont know why all these crybabies keep crying ab cutback eng
taking calls in lville, listen, nothing is going to make them add more
turns back for engineers, just because people refuse to step up doesnt
mean the company is going to all of a sudden freak and decide to add
turns. If anything we need to take the eng calls, step up and protect
the work that we do have. if we dont, then they will just run the
trains elsewhere. I for one am forced on the yard xb, and i refuse to
work in that yard. I was one of the main ones that refused to take
engineer calls when cut back. But now that im forced in the yard, on a
yard xb that doesnt pay shit, I dont have much of a choice but to take
the calls, i cant afford that garbage guarantee pay that the yard pays.
to hell with that. so you best bet any chance i get to get out of that
yard im gonna take it. i understand how you all feel, i felt the same
way. but when it comes to finances, shit goes out the window.

I see mantle ridge LP Paul Halil acquired 42+ million dollars in stock
on FEB 9 along with others. Happened to look at the form 4 from the
securities commision for CSX. Mantle ridge is going to be around for a
while. Or they know something we don't. Look for stock rebound soon.
Good Luck

Regarding Louisville - people assigned to yard extra list taking a call
for a road job: What's the rule? If they get you on the phone and
you're qualified, rested, can you say no?

The guy complaining about yard guys taking road jobs is right. The
company only calls yard xtra board guys when the road boards are
exhausted. Why take a call to help the company? Make them miss an on
time departure here and there and the will eventually add turns which
adds jobs which is good for everyone.

legal fees

Attorneys work on contingency.  They cover all cost up front. This is 
how the little man can take on a large corporation.  If defendant is
found guilty. Your attorney fees and court cost will be paid by
defendant.  If you lose your case attorney eats all losses.  


If settled prior to..   Settlement minus attorney fees minus court cost
and fees equals your money free and clear.

Your attorney will have you agree to an engagement letter.  This is an
agreement to protect you and your attorney.  On whats expected from you
and the law firm.  Your attorney will draw it up but it will be written
so he has more protections than you do.  You do not have to agree to
this.  You can inform him that there are changes that will have to be
made.  He will change it. If he says no then he doesn't believe your
case will prevail.  If you are still unsure about the engagement
letter.  Pay a second attorney to go over it.  Once you agree to the
engagement letter you will be strictly bound to it.  You don't have to
sign an engagement letter for it to be binding.  A verbal agreement is
the same.   Most can't afford to fight an attorney.  So go over
everything he's there for himself then he's there for you.
