In North America railroaders have more security than any other industry.
They can lay people off. But they canít move the tracks to China
overseas or Mexico. There are so many companies that took tax money and
are setting up shop outside the USA. A carrier employee made 23 bucks an
hour in USA. A Mexican worker is paid 3 bucks an hour. And labour is
cheaper across the pond. I was layed off nine times in a 34 year rr
career and was able to retire. If your low man on seniority list save
some money for times you are layed off. The rr I worked at had 35000
employees in 1980. Today there are 12000 employees. Technology was the
game changer. You put up with lots of shit being a rr today to make a
living, but hang in there there is a reward called retirement where
most people will never see outside rr life. But most of all folks have
a rainy day nest egg and it is there when you need it. Been there done
that more than once.

SO WHAT TRUTH

This isn't economics one class. WE DONT CARE. 

Brothers 
They are starting to double up trains again. Hauling 2 trains at once.
Don't bother putting in claims because it aint going to work. You cant
say your handling 2 different trains even though you know it. The
freight will be classified as one train and the other will be
abolished. When the weather gets warmer the long ass 3 mile trains will
be back. TM's are talking about the new tele that can supposedly
communicate at longer distances. PTC will show you were your train is.
DP remote units replace the tele but it isn't fail safe. You just run
30 when all the shit hits the fan.  Still talking about chopping
Willard. Where will these guy move to. Brothers, you better start
saving your money and get a moving plan in order unless you got 20
years seniority. You might be in the seat now but don't count on it.
You might just end up pounding the rocks again. Hope this shit doesn't
get bad but it looks like we are headed for a shake up!

You talk about Wall Street greed, I assume you are a unionized employee,
that takes part in the payroll deduction to buy CSX shares. You want
bang for your buck. By taking part in this program you are a
capitalist. I ask you then are you part of the problem or part of the
solution ?

The truth

So what the hell is your point. Just how is all you wisdom going to
help us in the field today or tomorrow. You didn't post one damn thing
that has anything to do with this forum. We have to deal with the here
and now. We have to deal with the everyday crap AT WORK! None of us can
do a damn thing tomorrow about the crap you posted. We have families to
feed and bills to pay today. We have a hard enough time coming to work
and keeping ourselves out of investigation and fighting for our pay. 
You dude are on the wrong website. Go fight on some political website.

I would like to know what happened to the company and the union
agreement that all new testing devices are to be discussed and shown to
the crews before they just start throwing them out there. And how in the
hell can they put them below the rail and take them out with their
hands.

Wall Street is what is killing the Railroad at a time when it is needed
most by putting maximum pressure on corporate to make short term
profits over logical long term sustainability. I know we all look at
times how it effects us personally in the now. But what is happening
:Greed at a very evil level is ruining the whole country. And the
Railroad being Butchered by " wall street" is going to effect a awful
awful lot of other industries in the near future. So too the Power's to
be and there lust for Money...Be happy for a short while why you get
"yours" and the heck with the hard working common Man/Women and there
Family's..There will be some harsh reaping for the sowing that is being
done.

More important than operating ratio' s is service innovation and
"Happy Customers ".The problem with letting Wall Street be Your
Master is that Wall Street thing's that all industries exist primarily
to help wall street earn even higher rates of return and there is in
fact no rate of return which wall street consdider to be enough. True
to if they can make more money by Wrecking your buisness,then that is
what they will do.

Alert!  

They put a switch tag like that folded so you couldn't really see the
reflection. This is horseshit!  They are taking pictures of crap after
the crews leave and coming back with charges.  This is more bull crap.
This has been discussed before. They could easily lie and set a crew
up. It's time to consult lawyers. Screw the unions. Word has it an fra
guy was involved with taking pictures. This is getting deep out here.
It's like a repeat of the old nazi southern Ingram days!

Nature built China, Nature built Japan and Nature drove our trains to a
Nature built Wal-Mart. Nature will keep these countries from taking us
over while we sing Cum-ba-ya.
Sounds Great if we could all just get along.
Fact is, we are providing transportation of foreign made goods by train
to our market place and are active in destroying our nation. It's hard
for some We Have brain washed to see it any other way.

JEEZZ YOU FRICKIN MORONS!  

Now for important info.  There is a new switch tag testing device out
that we have not been briefed on per the rules. FRA rules states that
all testing devices were to be reviewed. This is a square tag that is
white with red lettering and it fits below the rail. They are putting
it as far back as 3 feet. It they remove it with their hand they will
have to reach below the top of the rail.  ILLEGAL AS HELL!  You can not
always see it with your flash light. Watch your ass!!!!

Some of you probably could use some basic education in economics.  Here
is a link to a half century old essay about pencils.  It's so simple a
child can understand.  Read it and decide for yourself how evil you are
being when hauling those TFOC.  https://fee.org/resources/i-pencil/

Most professional teachers in university are pushing communism. The
hardcore socialists. Students are against free speech, anti capitalism
to the max. They want the goverment to pay for there education, and
every other det they incurred while in school. 60% of women are
graduating with nonsense degrees like gender studies. Not the stem 
degrees. That is now racist and sexist if you expect scientific facts
to be considered. And these teachers pushing the nonsense are making
300 grand a year and life time pensions that they pay nothing into.
These are the new leaders folks, Democrats have brainwashed these
people to open the boarders so you can work your ass off to feed the
worlds , needy. And if ms13 kills your family, your tax dollars with
rehabilitation him to prepare him for when he gets out of jail for a
lifetime of welfare. Your tax dollars,at work. Who needs border  walls
to protect the people trump must be crazy to suggest such a thing. The
money the tax payers would save not having to deal with illegals would
pay for a wall 100 times over.  All the Democrats live in protected
gated communities. Union is suppose to vote Democrat left. But in the
end it will cost you everything importing third world people.
Immigration is good if done legally and people are vetted. Cheap labour
and votes is all the dems care about. Protect your country and standard
of life before it gets totally out of hand.

APE for less than 1year.

AOC must be your girl. You sound just like her. You obviously sleept
through anything related to economics in junior high school and you
refuse to what is placed right in front of you. We all are just one cog
in the giant machine that is mother natures way of efficiently bringing
the worlds marketplace to your front door. And we help deliver Americas
wonder to the rest of the world.  It's called capitalism and no one
loses. Oh, the closed stores you describe? They were the stores that
sold buggy whips that no one needed anymore. They refused to adapt and
followed the democrats who tried to buy their votes with promises of
new, gov't owned buggy whip stores and there was no real market for
them. There's just nothing like the blind who refuse to see.
Capitalism!! It's mother natures way!!

CSX

The next time we're out shopping, pick up a product and see where the
product came from.  Then we should all pat ourselves on the back for
getting almost everything from a foreign nation to our people. On your
way home look for the businesses that are closed that WE ran out of
business by making foreign transportation of goods possible. Now look
for the homeless and poor who WE put out of work. Again that deserves a
pat on the back while we blame some one else, Foote!

CSX

The railroads are destroying our nation!

1. We lost our jobs due to infair marketing. American companies
couldn't compete with slave and child labor so they moved to foreign
countries.
2. BUT how do you get this cheap crap back to American markets? EASY! 
TOFC and you guys will put  TOFC to any American store.

Forget about Foote, Russia and the Middle East, they are just
distractions while railroads build a high speed infrastructure for
transportation of goods with high tariffs.

APE/ 310 to Yuma

Your thoughts are correct unfortunately too late. Railroads and
government have too much invested to allow employees to stop things.

We have spent millions each year Brain Washing the people and
employees. We've done a good job. Just watch this site. Say something
bad about CSX and you immediately  bash the poster!

Want proof?  The PTC and Remotes are foruners to eleminating your jobs

Hereís an idea,    Letís all stick together for once and get our
Railroad back to the way it used to be.       A lot of people bashed
the Conrail guys but one thing is for sure they always stuck together. 
The main problem is you have too many suck asses and wanna be Kool aid
drinkers out here.     Then you have the guys that will say ď yes Iíll
do whatever it takes to get the job done mentality and will break rules
and backstab whoever they can.    

Letís put all of our money in and just buy the damn railroad and Elect
a new CEO!!
