UP Management:

Profits will only improve when you decide to post bail for El Chapo, so
that the drug trains can start raining profits again. Maybe one of your
stogies can tap on Jim Young's grave, and ask how he got away with the
crime of the century....Or maybe not..,because Karma is a Bitch that
needs another Whore!

Make history gents, give the media something to talk about and be
remembered for the next 100+ years. Save your railroad. It won't take
much and it won't take long. This country is highly dependent on rail
transportation. With or without the union you have to save your
railroad. Save it before it's to late because it is almost gone.

Nothing I said was a complaint. Just a simple service update for my
fellow union brothers. I go when they call and I'd never take a
paycheck if I wasn't giving an honest days work. I think we should let
each other know, and maybe the public might read a few lines about the
truth out here. I know service hiccups will happen in his plan, but
there's some unnecessary intimidation and abuse of power going on.
Some bullying of crews and terminals. It's not right. Hopeful for the
future or not, we should still have a voice, and this might be all we
have...

..The jury also saw videotaped testimony by Matthew Stewart, a CSX
dispatcher who said he's been alerted by train crews spotting wayward
cows and drunk men wandering too close to the tracks. Stewart said he
can respond by ordering nearby trains to slow down and calling
authorities near the scene....

Velocity starts when a train departs and ends when it arrives. But the
dwell time is going to be pretty ugly. That's the time cars sit in a
yard or siding. Nc has cars that haven't moved in 8 days, and there's
no light at the end of the tunnel for them to start moving. Rule changes
and intimidation hasn't even started. This is gonna get ugly, and our
unions aren't even interested.

I didn't know that about Parked trains can't bring your velocity down
without a crew.    Thanks for the info


New dude 
I'm with you I'm sick of all the rule changes no one cam keep up
with.  The stress not being able to stay rested for a job.  Most of all
the intimidation of the new idpap.

Yup. And the lack of crews for these trains help to sugar coat things.
Parked trains can't bring your velocity down without a crew. I've
heard on both ends from dispatch that it's going to be a while because
there are no crews anywhere, and it's been the same story for more than
a week. Some buffalo crews were at Willard when their id pool ended, and
they left them there for an extra day, some of them longer with no
trains on their lineup, just to make a point. Fucked up. Ethics means
what again??

Hey precision

It's funny how we all know the truth.  Meanwhile csx is spreading the
lies about how well this is all working out.

Don't forget to include new castle and Willard in that meltdown. New
castle has about 700 cars for Willard and Willard is screwed and can't
handle any of it. One yardmaster now, and he looks like he's having a
meltdown as well. Willard is even sending cars back to new castle just
to get them out of the way. Trainmasters melting down as well. I worked
extra job the other day. 10hrs and never left the crew room. Not a track
to switch into. It's about as fucked as it has ever been since steam
engine days. Good job team. It'll probably work better tomorrow,
right?

Avon yard is shutting down?   That yard has been in operation for over
100yrs.  Where will all the men move to?  What would be the closest
move?

Melt down at Avon Yard, melt down on the St. Louis Line, meltdown at
Hawthorne Yard,meltdown everywhere.  Avon can't take trains in, to
many to hump. Hawthorne holding 400 Avon car's, St. Louis Line is the
Nashville Division's bitch.  Great plan, precision railroading at
it's best!

Conductor:

Don't blame 3-step on "CSX".  It was a former Conrail rule that FRA
loved.  Google the SOFA Analysis Working Group and you will find that
this FRA sponsored group of labor, company and FRA reps named this as a
recommended practice and the industry was highly "suggested" to
follow.  It will be interesting to see how the Trump FRA will react to
the "new" CSX outlook on safety, including charging employees for
injuries.

I don't disagree with you that all but a braindead idiot needs this
rule, but sadly we have a few of those around.  

Like everything in that rulebook, it is written in blood, by attorneys.

Don't know about anyone else but I'm afraid to lose my job. After 20
year's of being a locomotive engineer for CSX and being a loyal
employee and only marking off with days I've earned.  I surely don't
want end my career working for a place that could care less about
me.How much money does one man need at so many others misery.

Facts

Facts or no facts, it isn't going to matter in a month anyway. Avon
yard will be closed down and everyone relocated elsewhere. Your TM that
you want buried wont be a TM anyway. Your intimidated female PTI driver
wont have a job either. HH wants them all gone. Call cab service as 
needed. No one is condoning anyone for doing anything wrong but this
isn't the first time someone has moved up into the ranks and was
suddenly accused of sexual misconduct when things weren't going the
way someone wanted it. As for the person making the accusations, just
hope its not the same person that made those kind of accusations about
male crew members in the past and had those charges thrown out because
they were blown up to be more than what they were. Don't get egg on
your face. If you weren't involved and aren't a witness it is best
you keep out of it because running your yap can get you charged just as
well. Being charged with trying to instigate violence and harassment in
the work place will get you walked out the door.
