Terminating men for over speed.
Down loading locomotive for not going fast enough in yard tracks. 
Down loading engines because hear say.
Low on man power
Twist agreement to suit carrier needs 
Show up on rest while working extra board
Forces to away from home terminal yet carrier says you canít stay at
hotel and you will not get three hour call but you have to show up on
rest. I know men who are getting less than 4 hours sleep because of
this and working 18 plus hours daily due to driving and working 12
It seems to me the CN is probably a good place to work now since we got
all there incompetent managers. Local Trainmaster are scared to death no
Iíve come to the conclusion that termination is imminent so why worry
about it.
From what Iíve seen itís not to this level everywhere.
FRA defect found reported mechanical said do not move locomotive
Trainmaster said take it until he heard what mechanical said then he
was told to download locomotive from assistant super and find something
anything the engineer did wrong in 12 hour trip and charge him.
As any railroader knows if they download looking they will find
something I donít care how good you are.  This place is an awesome job.
I wish they would hurry up and get stock price up from there liquidation
sale so they can move on and the railroad can get back to railroading
