Red-

My post was not intended to be "pro-company", I am as anti EHH as
anyone and voted my shares as such.  My point was that with all of the
bitching over the years, over people that really were not that bad, we
finally have someone who should be hated and feared.  Like it or not,
CSX deserves this.  Wall Street doesn't give a shit about employees
and even if Eugene dies before his contract is up; he is already
bringing in his minions (Jamie Boychuk from CN for one) to succeed
him.

As a manager for 20+, I walk into work everyday like "my six is in the
chopping block".  I have survived numerous cutbacks, but I act like
everyday is my last in order to survive.

Louisville has become a nightmare of a place to work in the last 2
weeks, and supposedly will be getting worse! This place sucks, glad I
have an income but my god, Ford, Toyota, or any of these distilleries
around Louisville are looking better and better. Side note why in the
hell do we pay union dues around here, just for fun? No taxation
without representation right?

Alot of what is posted here is 1st hand accounts of things we see
everyday,have we been forced to apply, no we most of us anyway paid our
own money for a chance at the conductor training program, myself had to
take out a $8000 loan to attend, went through the 8 week program unpaid
in another state, commented myself to this line of work as so many
before me did as well, for a chance to provide for myself and my future
family. I  have been furloughed multiple times and came back because im
a railroader, its what i do. Sorry for being on such a high horse but
take pride in my craft anx will not walk away from what i have earned,
myself along with thousands of other boots on the ground women and men
over the decades have helped build this railroad, and the relationships
with our customers, as well as the yr over yr profits csx and its
shareholders have enjoyed. So dont down play our investment in the
company and make sound so easy to walk away from something we feel we
helped build. Remember our sacrifices we often see the pepole we work
with more often than our own families, i know i know u will say well u
signed up for that and your right, and im still signed up and not
walking away, just dont want it taken away.

If you are not employed with the railroad in any capacity,you have no
credibility in posting any comment on the dysfunctional culture of
Railroad life.Hunter Harrison is applauded for his business acumen but
it does not take much talent to rape another company for their own
personal gain.This is the typical hostile takeover were the objective
is short term gains and profitability without any regard for longevity
and growth. The multimillionaire's compensation package is ridiculous
and immoral with his cut and gut and cash out strategy.Everyone
employed by him is seen as a liability on the balance sheet.You are
disposable.He is looking to further secure his elitist family on the
backs of our labor.Double H Farms is an expensive operation to
maintain. I am sure he thinks more highly of his horses than common
laborers. I voted no likewise in less than five minutes to thwart his
narcissistic effort for personal enrichment.

Too much of what is posted on this particular website is just 
complaining from unhappy employees. 
Surely & truthfully, there are many legitimate valid concerns,
complaints, etc. 
HAS ANYONE EVER BEEN FORCED TO HIRE ON AND THEN MADE TO STAY?

You guys on the CSX have it really bad.
I know that being a SMART/ UTU officer and
sell my guys off for extra cash to get what the
company officers here in Bakersfield want.

Don't feel bad. You are all going to get fucked
with the next national agreement when it expires and
just have to take it in the ass.

Have a good weekend.

I somewhat agree with the trainmaster. Almost all top management were
determined to provide themselves, buddies and kinfolk, and the
management mafia with high salaries and an easy life, with
stockholder's shares a very secondary concern. Nobody in authority
tried  to re-mediate the family life issues, the poor workplace
concerns, etc. The habit of bullying labor and lower management was
long term, sick leave / FMLA was a joke, and the solution was to marry
into West Virginia mafia or burrow into a cubbyhole in JAX, and to hell
with people out of service for being a target, or the many operational
inefficiencies tolerated. EHH is blunter and quicker, and doesn't
share as much of the pie with medium / top management, preferring to
give surplus to shareholders. If we saw managerial resumes you find NO
education, not a spark of managerial acumen, and NO talent whatsoever
to improve CSX. A good criteria is to ask is: could this boss be a
shift manager at Taco Bell? Are other companies in other industries
swarming around to get the "precious talent" we are shedding? Oscar
Munez, who was chosen for CSX from Pepsi / Frito Lay, quickly was taken
by United. Clearly not a perfect person, he was promoted in many
industries, and CSX picked him over Cindy, Dave Dech, John Bradley, and
hundred's of other RR managers.Not one of them is likely to get a job
at Coca-cola, Microsoft, or Wall Street. Not one of them is likely to
get a MacArthur genius award, innovate new procedures in steel, health,
or computers, or do anything higher than high school drop out levels.
They may get a buy out to reward them for doing nothing useful for 20
years, or to thank the well connected father for siring a child of no
ability. Many others will get far less.

All of these shenanigans to line the pocket of a multimillionaire, who
has no regard for real people . We have dedicated our lives to CSX and
sacrificed our families to accommodate the company through the years by
working very demanding schedules.We are very special, tough people
despite the views of corporate elites.EHH's primary objective at every
Railroad he has led is to rape the company for his own personal gain and
impress the boys on Wall Street with his impressive profit margins.
People in the financial industry only see his numbers but do not see
the real casualties on the ground. He is in it for the short term to
enrich his family's enormous fortune already accumulated upon the
backs of hard working men and women at other railroads.He is a
narcissist. This is like a bad storm upon us. We must hunker down and
pray for the best outcome. Now to deny a hard working, high skilled
labor force the opportunity to make overtime and provide good customer
service is clearly transparent. He does not care about you or the
customer. The customer is the reason for our existence.Pleae vote
against every nominee upon receiving your proxy. It only takes a few
minutes to complete. Prayers to all my CSX brothers and sisters!

Hunter Harrison has a few years left to live and yes he will be
remembered as the railroad master of the world he has accomplished that
and he will be leaving his family millions of dollars. If he quits right
now this will happen if he works till he dies this will happen. Why not
make some memories with your grandkids before you die?

Railroaders never cease to amaze me:

Everyone hated Ward
Everyone thought Munoz was a clown
Everyone thought Brown was a dick
Everyone thought Ingram was the biggest prick to walk the face of the
earth
Everyone though Conway was a dumbass
Everyone thought Crown was a jackass
Everyone thought Carpenter was an asshole

And now, everyone hates Hunter.  

Face it, if Jesus became CEO of CSX you would bitch about that too.

We are all fucked, big money owns 80% of this company and they want
Eugene H. Harrison in the seat, period.  He will gets the vote, easily.

There has been over 1000 managers let go.  How is that not 1000+ votes
against HH and Mantle Ridge.  Almost every CSX employee owns stock.  I
say cast your vote make your voice heard. It Takes less than 5 minutes.
 Mantle Ridge is buying advertisement pushing HH.   Merril Lynch is
pushing for HH vote.  Screw these guys. The working class owns this RR
and "they"  don't want us to ever come to that realization.   We can
shut this place down overnight if we so desired.  Something as simple
has voting an old man out is child's play.   Come on brothers cast
your vote

I've worked for Csx for over 20 yrs. and this is as bad as it's ever
been.  We were just  told no more ot. Now that's been done in the past
but somehow it seems different now. I just want to put the word out
Never forget the nuts run the asylum. And yes we're the nuts!
Engineers make sure to calendar day your locomotives. If you find a non
complying issue shop it. Road engineers if you got to use the bathroom
let the dispatcher know and stop your train. If you lose com with your
eot get it down to 30mph. Foreman protect your shoves. Take your lunch.
Report any switch hard to throw. If the handle doesn't spring up and
just flops to the ground report it. Make sure you stop 30 minutes
before your off duty time so you can tie down your power and job brief
the yard master what you didn't finish. Now these are just a few
things everyone should be doing. In unity is strength!
