CSX-Sucks!

Denied Claims

Claim Invalid??

    Railroaders work, and expect to be paid. It's a simple idea. Less work means less pay. Likewise, more work should mean more pay, but that's not the way things work on the CSX. According to union contracts, there are situations that warrant additional pay, for additional work, but more often than not, these claims are not honored by the CSX.



Webmaster's note:

Since I go through the server logs regularly, I just thought I'd take this opportunity to point out that all of the comments in defense of the company seem to come from Jacksonville, while complaints come from everywhere that the company does business.

You do the math.

From my understanding, the carrier wants to have this in place by July! 
Us guys up north are opposed, but the General Chairmen of the south 
thinks this is a good deal?  Better wake up because we opposed the
single system agreement for a few years.  We kept our bumps and
agreements in place.  The only reason we ended up with it was because
the other 85% of the system agreed upon it.  Then it was shoved down
our throats.  How do you guys like it now with no time off?  The hourly
rate will be the same thing, full of surprises that only benefit the
carrier in the long run.

OK Gents, Most of us guys up north are opposed to this hourly rate. Our
General Chairman is opposed to it. But we are being told that you
southern guys are all in favor of it because you guys have mostly low
mileage runs that don't pay that much, and you'll make out on the
hourly rate. Up north we have a lot of high mileage runs and will take
a bath on those runs. So where is the truth my Southern Brothers? Are
we being lied to by the company or union? Is it the old divide and
conquer? Speak up boys! We all want to hear from the south and the
middle!

We already have one super pool. We get paid for no extras.  We're
called for whatever whenever and we do any bullshit they can come up
with.  Is this what I or anyone else wants?  Hell no it's not but this
is are reality.  Do I think the carrier wants hourly for our welfare? 
Hell no, they don't care about any of us. They break our contracts
everyday. They have ignored federal laws.  Screwed over those laid off
fmla. Laid off and fired thousands with more to come.  This place sucks
ass and we all know it.  What beats the shit out of me.  Is why some
young man would stick around.  Anyone with less than 10 years and under
30 you best find something else to do.

Hourly rate is coming.  You can take that to the bank.  Some will be

People had better wake up!  Do you actually think the carrier is doing
this for your best interest?  From what I understand, this will also be
the start of the one big extra board and the end of seniority.  They
will be able to call you into work, and make you work any job or
position regardless of your seniority.  Its bad enough that we will
become slaves.  IS THIS WHAT YOU REALLY WANT?  If not, you had better
speak to that general chairman who might be selling you up the river.

One Union would help.  But that will never happen.  
Things have changed for the worse and we haven't seen the end yet.  
We do as were told or we are insubordinate.   We speak of work rules be
trading for hourly wage .   What work rules?  We do all the horseshit
now and aren't compensated.  If we  can get over 40 an hour we better
jump on it.  We only make about 29 now.   None of this matters anyway
if the company wants it that's what it will be.   This regime does
whatever they want.   They prove this everyday.  They don't even 
follow federal law. Why would we begin tho think they give a damn about

Thanks spoken like a true union Brother noone cares about the bottom

all at odds with one another. It's dumb fucks like you that agree to do
what ever the company wants them to do. If a company is offering you
something it isn't to benefit the employees, or that they feel as if
we are not making enough.  Utu Ble not sure which one is the best we
need to stand together and get rid of one and keep the other and see
how much the company gets away with that is what really needs to be

IT SEEMS THE COMPANY HAS APPROACHED THE BLET ONCE AGAIN WANTING THE
HOURLY RATE!

From my understanding, the General Chairman representing the south want
this?  ARE THEY NUTS
The word is that it will be under $50 per hour with no work rules, and
overtime after 10 hours.  For starters, you will become a slave to the
company, and they don't even have to work you past 10 hours.  This
will also eliminate thousands of jobs because the slaves will be in
place.    Why do you think the carrier wants this so bad?  It isn't
going to benefit the employees!  WAKE UP GENERAL CHAIRMAN, unless you
are just selling everyone up the river again?  Remember if this passes
through, there will no longer be the need for a union.

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

the calls, i cant afford that garbage guarantee pay that the yard pays.

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.

This is unlike running a red signal.   The court system can get involved
immediately. CSX and their managers have broken federal law.   You may
have to go through the process to get your job back quicker per
arbitrator.   But you absolutely don't have to wait to file a demand
letter with CSX.  Then a complaint with the court system. Finally file
suit against CSX and their blind managers. 

This may take a few years but it will never see a court room.  CSX will
be writing all who suffered a check to settle. They will also offer the
men their job back or will be forced to pay future lost wages too.

To all the penis envy men.  Those men you despise.   When it's all
said and done.   Will have their job,seniority and more than they could
have saved in 20 years. Meanwhile you will continue to work and bad
mouth those wrongfully terminated.  ONly to watch those men be better

I don't have fmla and hope I'll never will need it. 

Your statement is partially correct but how is someone who has a
certification by a health care provider.  That lays off on federally
protected UNPAID leave living off someone else.  Fmla is far from
welfare these men and women are not getting paid.  I seriously doubt a
licensed health care provider is going to falsify a certification and
place their license in jeopardy. 

I for one don't care If  one works or doesn't work.  I've always
made  about the same and have worked about the same.   I also believe
that those on fmla, displaced,union, sick, or whatever keep the junior
man working.  If or when csx finds X amount of people to marry the
railroad there will be massive layoffs.

Do you know what 2 men working 60hrs a week equals?

Got their point across.  Where do you work?   Men are laying off FM as
much now as before.  CSX can't scare a man to good health.   This
place turns out fat broken down bodies.  If 60% of the men are on Fmla
it surprise me the number wasn't higher.

P.S. Go fuck yourself. Hope you get laid off punk.

You're one of those who has a standard for everyone else that you
don't Measure up to.

It's easy to talk about another man's sin.     Ask yourself have you
ever stole time from your beloved CSX.  Waited to tie up to miss a
train catch your off day. Have you ever passed the work along to the
next Crew.  Talked to everyone in the Crew room instead of starting
your deadhead.  Took your time to kill a train.  Laid off Union.  Laid
off sick when you felt fine. Called the man to get flipped home when
there was rested crews. Cried to get the boards cut.  Put in pl days
before anyone else could. 
Bitches like you are the worse.  Complain about everyone when they're
not around just to suck them off the next time you see them.   You
might not lay off Fmla but your doing other shit just as bad or worse. 
 I hear the men I work with that live on the rails tell me how they
support their family.   I ask them which one and does the current
family know you? They are the most miserable, untrustworthy men like
yourself.

Save your self righteous bullshit for your fat lazy cheating wife.

Crews 
The facts.
The pay rates Will change.
Seniority will be a thing of the past.
Super pools will be implemented.
Work rules will be drastically reduced.
Crews will swap trains at a halfway point and bypass the hotels. The
plans are already on the table. 
Yard and road work will be combined. Everyone will become multi purpose
employees. Crews will be reduced.

It doesn't matter what happens to the stock. It doesn't matter how
they restructure. It doesn't matter what assets they sell. You are a
blue collar in the field worked with absolutely no control how CSX
handles its business. You are no body. You will come to work and bitch
every day like you always do and do your job as your told or be
fired.You can't even control you union's let along a corporation as
big as CSX. So learn to adapt to the changes. Keep your mouth shut and
do your job as your instructed. There's not a damn thing you can do
about it. The union's have no federal rights that prevents CSX from
restructuring. If you still have a job when it is all done then
consider yourself blessed. Do you job and take your paycheck. If this
pisses You off TOO BAD! The truth hurts. You cut your balls off years
ago so deal with the game you are being given. Conform or leave.

I have been a signal man for csx for more than five years. Recent rumors
of job cuts have left everyone with the attitude of screw it i am
getting laid off so why try to do good work. Trucks are trashed, tools
are broken or left laying on the job site, and quality of work are all
directly related to this new attitude. For example a 1 year employee
who worked at a warehouse making $9 an hour before csx hired him is
willing to learn everything he can about signal systems while  a 3 year
employee spends most of the day complaining about csx, playing on his
cellphone, and generally getting paid to make everyone else miserable.
Seniority determines who stays and who’s cut. Good luck if the cuts
happen because work quality will be trash.

Wake up idiots!!!!

The writing is on the wall. We will all be on an hourly rate. All trip
rates will be abolished. There will be no assigned limits. You wont
need them. You will work every direction on every job. There will no
need for locals. You will get called to do any job. It will take the
company a long time to get everyone qualified to do all the work but
they will eventually get you to do it. If for some reason you don't
get called for a particular job because it just doesn't come your way
on the one big super pool you will only be allowed 1 pilot for one day
for a refresher. 

The only upside to this is you wont need to worry about filing claims
for out of route, mishandled on the job or being screwed out of double
tickets. No penalties for combining yard and road tickets. This will
decrease the work of your union representatives. 
When this happens it will be time to file a petition against our unions
and demand our union dues are decreased. They are already some of the
highest dues paid by any union member in the country. We don't need to
line their pockets if their work is cut in half and our seniority rights
have been demolished.  So sit back and wait for the changes to happen
because they will. You have lost all control of your unions. the only
thing you will have left is to go after them to reduce the dues and
keep your money they don't deserve.

It's the company's fault for allowing people like you to know why
people are laid off so you can pass judgment on everyone.  The company
abuse far outweighs the fmla abuse.  The attendance policy created fmla
abuse.  If you think the policy is fair then maybe you're on a regular

Union lovers

I have voted, I have attended meetings, I have supported them because I
was born and raised by them. Now Im just sick because of them. I wish
for just once we could get an LC or any damn Union rep who would do
their jobs and keep the members informed on what the hell is going on.
ITS THEIR JOB! They took the positions knowing good and well what they
were getting into. We have union boards. Has anything been posted on
them about all these proposed changes or those that have taken place
over night while we sleep? HELL NO! Has any local chairman circulated
information around the crew rooms for the members to read? HELL NO! I
was a member of a union before and our reps were on it the minute the
rumors started. They kept everyone up to date on the talks and meeting
they were having. They posted on the union boards. We got LCs now that
are telling people they aren't being kept in the loop and don't know
anymore than we do. If this is true that means one thing and one thing
only. The union is corrupt as hell. The LCs should be bringing charges
against the damn international. A deliberate attempt to hide
information and subjects of negotiations from their own damn LCs is
just cause to file federal charges under the LMRDA and United states
federal laws for protection of union members. You don't have to go to
a union meeting to get info. Your LCs are supposed to provide this
info. A good LC knows not all his members can attend. Only an idiot
would think other wise. I have never seen a union so hush hush and
hidden behind the scenes more than the UTU and the BLET. Shutting their
own reps out and leaving them in the dark is a sign of a corrupt union.
One no better than the Mafia had!  Its about time the members started
getting serious about their rights as members and start putting the
hammer down on the international for more transparency. Their getting
as bad as our government. This shit is getting bad! 
Oh... can any LC please explain to me how the company can abolish a job
and a 3 months later put it back on and reduce the miles and the pay on
the job. The same miles are being traveled and not a thing about the
job changes accept the job symbol. No rail was torn up. No short cuts
are being taken but all of the sudden the route is shorter and they pay
is less. Please explain this to us. We already know the carrier was
crying we were getting paid too much on these jobs. Doesn't change the
fact they were agreed and the rail miles never changed. Where does this
shit come from???

finally hold a job with good pay and good days home. Now anyone with a
single day of seniority can get called for the good runs and make
1000's more than me because the union didn't fight the fight for

I have been with CSX for most of my adult life. I’ve chased this job
from place to place knowing that when I gained the seniority that I
would eventually be able to hold a job close to home. I came to a point
in my life where I’m sure most have been where I decided it was time to
look for a career not a job. I paid the money for school took the
chance and joined the CSX railroad. My thinking was the railroad has
been around forever good pay good retirement but bad schedule and after
hiring in questionable at best work conditions referring to the way
people are treated. Since joining the railroad I started my adult life
so to speak got married had kids etc. The railroad has been good to my
family and I financially and been here long enough now I couldn’t
imagine myself doing anything different. Then what seems like overnight
huge changes to the point where I may not have a job tomorrow. Don’t get
me wrong I’m like everyone else I complained about claims and pay  as
well as unfair treatment. I swear mid level to upper management have no
regard for their employees for the most part or that’s how it seems. But
with all that being said I need my job. I have always done what I was
paid to do. I work the XB and the pools I’m not a kiss ass my outlook
has always been out of sight out of mind. I put my claims I when the
agreement is violated just to have them denied like everyone else. I
guess what I’m saying is in a way I’m scared of losing my job so a
elite few can reap the benefits of an inflated stock price. I don’t
think there will be much left of CSX when they are done. Best of luck
to all.

LOCO

They are getting ready to have a meeting with the BLET repts about
making super pool on east end out of Indianapolis. As for Nashville
they already combined several pools on that months ago. 
Another thing that's coming across the table is the old plan that HH
had to shut down the UP RR line that runs off the St. Louis line to the
UP RR/Salem depot. HH didn't think it was necessary and the traffic
could be sent via the terminal in Roselake. Its only 25 miles of rail
and isnt worth keeping CSX employees qualified on UP book of rules and
keeping CSX employees supplies with current paperwork and books. Rumors
were he was going to have UP crews pick up the freight from roselake
since they come there anyway. Only 2 maybe 3 trains a day come in there
and leave salem. Usually just 2. 

Hey , the guy who posted that a TM at roselake told you that you were
going to start delivering to Missouri like they did in conrail days how
about telling us who this TM is.  Is this cone yard that keeps being
referenced on the ST. Louis line dispatcher bulletins a yard that the
UP interchanges at?  What do you know about that. You got to know
something. Don't sit on the info. Going over there and deliver out of
advertised route with out any extra pay?  That tells all of us the
unions are going to negotiate new advertised job limits and aren't
going to ask us a thing about how we feel. But then , when do they ever
ask us a damn thing. Just take our money.  Big changes coming and you
wont find out until it happens. LC isn't going to know shit until the

No, I didn't even want to glare at a waiver. After 5 hours of
repetition, of listening to some woman on conference call read out the
system notices and saying how you are a violator and that you caused
all of the things to happen pertaining to the sanborn letter. Ughh,
I'm already tired again of thinking of today... it's basically their
little court, you're lc will present good evidence and the company
puppet will over rule, it's really a comedy. its just a big waste of
time, set through it and keep your cool, they want you to come
unhinged. All and all they're blindly reaching for shit, hoping
you'll slip up and incriminate yourself. That's all for now, sorry

All crews 

Get over it. You have no choice.  Your working conditions and work
rules are going to change whether you like it is not. Your all to big a
pansies to do anything about it. Your professional bitchers and that's
all. Your LCs can't do a thing about it and they know it. The GCs are
in the carriers back pockets. When was the last time your union leaders
at the international asked any of you what you thought about any of
these changes. The only time you here from them is when its time to
negotiate a new agreement. How many side letters have been made without
one question presented to the members? ALL OF THEM! The union's own you
and don't give a shit what you think and they don't care because they
know you won't do a damn thing about it. So just pay out the ass on
those over inflated union dues and live with it. You got federal rights
that protect you from union abuse. There's groups out there that can
help you with protecting your rights as members. Do some homework. Make
an appointment with a labor law lawyer. Do something other than
bitching. If not then suck it up.

Courts have ruled that managers and supervisors can be held personally
liable for FLSA violations. And now, in a new twist, courts are saying
they can be individually liable for FMLA violations as well. ... And
employers can be held liable for FMLA violations — even if those
“employers” are individuals within a company.Mar 22, 2017

The firing question
Yes, companies can fire an employee who’s on intermittent FMLA leave.
Despite the fears of many employers, FMLA doesn’t confer some kind of
special dispensation for workers who exercise their leave rights.
OBVIOUSLY, workers CAN'T be FIRED FOR TAKING LEAVE. 

When an employee on FMLA leave is terminated, the DOL decrees that the
burden’s on the employer to prove the worker would have been
disciplined or terminated regardless of the leave request or usage.

Wake up people! 
 Reality check. It's over for you. The union's aren't going to stop
it. You will become a big super pool. You will have no seniority except
for vacation bids. They already did it to the Nashville division. Get
used to the idea. You will become a big "bitch"board who will go
everywhere and do everything. You won't get second tickets. You won't
get to retire on one job close to home and working 5 days a week. It's
coming and the union's won't fight it. You won't know where you
working day to day. I'm the road, in the yard, on a local, etc. Expect
many to say the hell with this and quit. Hourly wage is coming. 
Everyone on the same pay for every job. It's coming. Face it. The
railroad industry is chsnging right in front of your face. The upside
to all of this is if everyone gets the same hourly rate to work every
job they are called for and there are no assigned pools and anyone can
be called to do any job then the mishandled call claims should
disappear and violation of work rules should as well. NO NEED FOR A
UNION accept to protect vacations and unfair discipline. Union dues
should be decreased. No reason in hell to pay your union those ungodly
dues. So get ready people. Your next big hurdle will be getting those
union due cut in half.

All OOS you best  be talking to an attorney.     Notice how your unions
haven't been in contact with you.  Do you believe they're working on
this?   Do not sign a waiver and do not settle for back pay.  Keep all
paper worked mailed to you.  Keep dates, times and names of any contact
with managers. Make a note of all derogatory comments by employees. 
Have you been treated differently or held to a higher standard?   Have
you showed proof to discredit their "honest belief" and they still
refuse to reienstate you?   Do not show weakness at their
investigation.  Stand your ground.  Don't be bullied into a waiver or
signing a resignation.  There is nothing they would like more.  By
signing such it releases them and you would be entitled to nothing.  If
your union rep recommends signing.  She  is not supporting you.

So the back pay? 
Normally I have 5% of my check put into my 401k, so all this time that
5% going in would have been more each check going into my 401k. The
markets have performed exceptionally well over the last year or so and
I would have made money on my 401k contribution that was not
contributed because we went without a renewed contract. My back pay
(chump change) should have been to account for that as well. WTF? 
Also FYI google company bonuses from the Trump tax cuts. There is a
list of companies cutting thousand dollar plus checks to their
employees. Wal-Mart made the list, Starbucks made the list, hundreds
more made the list. I did not see CSX on the list, I guess these
greedy, greasy, turds don't think they can spare anything for the ones

elsewhere before it gets bad or you might end up not able to get a job
or falling below a lot of other former railroaders. Look around your

Well folks this is my last post on here, I have officially quit CSX. I
was furloughed October 2017 and found another job starting at
$15.63/hr. I have been at my new job for 3 months and I love it. I have
a Monday-Friday 7:00am to 3:00pm schedule, every weekend off, double
time for holidays and time and a half if I want to work Saturday or
Sunday. I have a company match 401k, and my insurance is 100% paid by
the company. I work indoors and never get dirty or wore out. I always
thought the railroad was a great job, and it use to be, but my eyes
have opened up now. I initially was going to stay furloughed so I could
one day come back if I wanted to but now I wouldn't even consider it. I
turned in all of my CSX gear and officially quit so I could cash out my
401k. I pocketed 76K after taxes and fees. I am using that money to pay
off almost everything I own. I will be debt free and free from the
misery of CSX. There are better things out there people so don't loose
hope. I didn't think $15.63 an hour was enough but my checks are not a
lot less than at CSX. I make a little less but it is so worth it.
Goodbye CSX family, it's been good but I found better.

The Feds Can Be Your Worst Nightmare:

Going to the feds to report corporate thugs can backfire. Especially if
you don't initially contact the right department, because your
complaint  can get passed around to several departments, and someone in
between will alert the railroad's lobbyist. And the lobbyist will
notify the connected board member, who will then, notify the railroad
about your 
complaint.

Union Pacific is represented one of the largest lobbying firm in
America:

Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Felp, LLP....This firm advises the Department
of Labor of employee complaints in the Transportation Department.

The firm played an important role in reducing UP'S Drug Running Scene,
to a substantial reduction of fines and possible jail time.

Jose H. Villarreal serves as a board member for UP. He also works as a
consultant for the named lobbying firm. So, when an employee files a
federal complaint, the Department of Labor seeks advice from the
lobbyist, and the lobbyist notifies the board member (Villarreal), who
will then notify the railroad.

Be advised to know who your company's board of directors are, and
what's their field of expertise is. And most of the time, the road
leads to the Feds.
Has anyone ever wondered why most of the FRA officials are in inactive
status from the railroads they're suppose to be monitoring?

How Do I File a Complaint with the Secretary of Labor?

You may file a complaint with the Secretary of Labor. You should
contact the nearest office of the Wage and Hour Division of the
Employment Standards Administration, U.S. Department of Labor. Record
your complaint in writing and then present it in person, by letter, or
by phone. At that point, the merits of your complaint will be reviewed.
If the Department does decide to take action, it will first try to solve
your problem administratively by negotiating with the employer. If these
negotiations are unsuccessful and if it believes the FMLA was in fact
violated, the Secretary may sue the employer on behalf of the employee.

Here is a free one.   When you speak to your attorney be sure let them
know how are layoff board works.   Employers are not allowed to show
why someone is off.     The RR had a direct hand in a hostile work
environment by providing anyone the information how or why someone is
off.

" QUESTION :Can one employee say anything to another employee that
constantly takes FMLA and is putting a burden on coworkers?

ANSWER No. This is absolutely inappropriate, and as an employer you
need to put a stop to it. Federal law permits an employee to take up to
12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave under FMLA. That same law
prevents the employee from being harassed by the employer or coworkers
for using FMLA. Such actions are illegal retaliation and as an employer
you face fines and other penalties if you permit an employee to do
this.

As an employer, it is your obligation to hire, train and schedule
enough staff so that use of FMLA is not a major imposition on
coworkers. The problem here is not the use of FMLA — it is
understaffing."

Better add this to annual pods training.

Thank you for the information regarding the waiver, just as I
suspected.

I also agree to NOT sign the waiver. Doing so is almost certain
termination if one was to ever be investigated for FMLA abuse again. It
also takes away all ability to sue, because you'd be admitting you did
abuse your leave.

I'm on my third twelve month period of FMLA intermittent leave, and I
have NEVER received any "warning letters" concerning my actual use of
FMLA leave. I know of those who have, though.

CSX also requested me to re certify my FMLA leave due to an increase in
the usage estimated by my health care provider. Not only did I complete
the re certification paperwork(which has already been approved by the
FMLA department), I had my health care provider write a letter stating
my leave during the time period of the charge letter was in fact for my
personal serious condition. Still no word from the company.

As for the "honest belief" claim in defense of a retaliation lawsuit,
it's really hit or miss, when you search online for the outcome. In a
nutshell, the defense is that the company had an honest belief of FMLA
abuse, and even if they are wrong, they can't be held liable in a
retaliation lawsuit. BUT, everything you read online shows examples of
where the company had some sort of actaul proof the leave was being
misused. In our case, the only proof the company has is that leave was
taken. Not that it was taken for other reasons, just taken period.
During a certain time frame. I don't think it works that way. Neither
does my lawyer.

Best of luck to all involved. Please keep others in the loop as to
what's happening. 

My lawyer is aware of all this. He has advised me on how to proceed if
the investigation is completed. I have plenty of money to wait this
out, even if it takes years. I will admit to nothing.

offered 30 day actual suspension.  With time served going against it.  
They wanted me to admit I abused my leave.  I did no such thing.  I've
proof on to top of my certification.   So I told them there was no way
I'd be signing a waiver.   There were others also I dont know if any
took their waiver.

Also we had several in the last year who received "warning letters"
stating they were using their leave not for its intentions. 
conclusion they are holding all who didnt receive said letter at a
different standard.  Be sure to tell your lawyer about these warning
letters that werent received.

They are trying to build their case on an Honest Suspicion.  Which if 
they can it's near impossible to bring charges against them.  Non
union places of employment can fire let go their employees for almost
any reason.  The union shields us of this. So the honest suspicion rule
is all they have.  
Only use your leave for it's intentions. Never post on social media.
never talk to co-workers about your leave.  Never forecast leave. 
dont do anything that could be videotaped an used against you. Your co
workers will hang you if given a chance.

To whomever that was offered a waiver, would you care to elaborate on
the specifics of said waiver?

My investigation was over a week and a half ago, which was postponed
after I submitted documentation from my health care provider regarding
my FMLA use during the time period covered in the charge letter. My
postponement date is still over a week away, and no word from the
company concerning the documentation I provided.

Thanks in advance.

died? Just so you know, marking off Fmla for any reason other than what
you have Fmla for is Fmla misuse. Fmla is not for you to have a day off
when you need it or just don't feel like working.

His current employer paid 25 million to settle his theft or espionage

Filing a complaint with the dept of labor is what you do before you're
terminated.  They get involved and push the company to resolve the
matter.  It lets the company know that you will not sit Quietly.  
After termination the company is less likely to freely listen and must
be served a demand letter from an attorney.

The laws of the land protect illegals.criminals,terrorist animals all
sorts of religions any thing you can fathom.   There are people who
will go nuts for those mistreated.    There are even laws for working
class tax payers that have a medical condition or taking care of a
loved one.   It's very difficult near impossible  for a large
corporation to trample over a large group of people just doing the best
they can do.   The burden is on the corporation to show fault.  Laying
off on a holiday under your protected leave doesn't warrant
termination.

HR


We don't doubt that for 1 second.  CSX lawyers have warned them what
they can and cannot do.  CSX doesn't give a damn about the law this is
all about arrogance.  CSX thinks they are above the law.   We know CSX
has paid lawyers. That's good because they're going to need them in
every state east of the Mississippi.  CSX previously  screwed 1200
managers. Currently screwing their customers. Now they think they can
screw the T&E.  You can count on us having "Our ducks in a row" 
New York will come down on CSX like a hammer. This is blatant
retaliation over their new paid time leave. That's how it will be
perceived anyway. Last I checked if CSX is silly enough to let any of
these countless suits make it to court.  A group of our peers decide
the outcome not some paid arbitrator.

Read up on FMLA the federal law leans strongly for the employee.  Ward
was wise enough not to cross the line in the sand.  The countless
lawsuits won't be just against CSX there will be individuals also
named as defendants.

That's right it will all be sorted out.  The ones who are legit and
have been pulled out have more owed to them than a weeks back pay.  
I'm not saying it's right but the others have a lawsuit also.  There
will be fines and lawsuits over this.  There are lawyers already making
contacts ambulance chasers but they will sue CSX.  CSX knows if it goes
to court they lose.

use will be looked at and if there is a pattern you will be dealt with
if there is no pattern you will be fine. You know if you abuse the

over some idiot just wanting a day off.   Is there some who use it for
other reasons? Possible but most do not and who are you to judge your

There needs to be an investigation in CSX.  Who would pay someone 300
million dollars when everyone knew that person would be taking a
medical leave.  I didn't think "key employees" were allowed any sort
of medical leave.     

I bet there were no substantial difference of layoffs over the holidays
verses any other given day.   New York requiring 8 weeks of company paid
leave Jan 1st is suspect to why CSX would choose now to to pull this.  

I love my job and union co- workers but I think this company keeps
going down hill.

I hope everyone out of service sues CSX the HR directors, managers and
who ever else that can be placed  on the lawsuit.

Looking over the TA for the Carmen and I’m quite embarrassed that our
union took 3 years to negotiate this. You literally took 3 years to
accomplish nothing but a petty raise that’ll get swallowed up by
increased union dues. Scardelletti will get hundreds of thousands of
dollars in bonuses when this contract is ratified. While us workers
will get a swift kick in the nuts. I love how their number 1 selling
point of this TA is retroactive pay-on average over $3000. Give me a
break, what a joke. Number two is increased wages over the contract
period-on average over $20,000. I don’t know who does their math but a
compounded wage increase of 13.1% over the five year contract period
does not add up to $20,000. Ok I’m done now, bye

Blah blah blah

Your actions and comments are making a hostile work environment. System
notice had a hand it that too.  That in itself is a direct violation of
fmla.  How about that one person who needs it and uses it and now he
has to deal with assholes like you.   1 or  12 men layoff regular
doesn't make anyone work more or less.  If or when the carrier finds x
amount of men who live on the rails.  There will be massive layoffs. 
All you fucks who have been out here less than 10 years better hope the
more senior man doesn't  start living on the rails  or you can  kiss
your ass goodbye.  For the dumbass who believes someone has lost their
job because of laying off over Christmas/New Year.  You best put the

Examples of prohibited conduct include:
1Refusing to authorize FMLA leave for an eligible employee,
2Discouraging an employee from using FMLA leave,
3Manipulating an employee’s work hours to avoid responsibilities under
the FMLA,
4Using an employee’s request for or use of FMLA leave as a negative
factor in employment actions, such as hiring, promotions, or
disciplinary actions, or,
5Counting FMLA leave under “no fault” attendance policies


2 has been violated with With the new system notice and the removing of
employees from service for Layoffs over the holidays.

5 has been violated with the caps attendance  policy


Those pulled out of service may be entitled to thousands of dollars in
damages.
I spoke with an attorney today out of Orlanda sounded very promising
and he only gets paid if Iwin my suit. 

He said it's too late to apologize.  That a hostile work environment
is the result of the company's unilateral move. Which is also a

you think your employer has violated the FMLA, you should schedule a
consultation with an experienced lawyer. A lawyer can review your
situation, identify any legal problems in the way your employer treated
you, and help you decide what to do next. For example, you might want
the lawyer to coach you on how to talk to your manager, to write a
letter to your employer on your behalf, or even to file a lawsuit in
court. Many employment lawyers charge you only if you win your claim,
so you may not need to pay a lawyer up front.

Anyone laid off FM over the holidays are being pulled out of service.  
Contact the Dept. of Labor immediately.   

Filing a Complaint with the Secretary of Labor

A complaint may be filed in person, by mail or by telephone with the
Wage and Hour Division, U.S. Department of Labor. A complaint may be
filed at any local office of the Wage and Hour Division.
The complaint should be filed within a reasonable time of when the
employee discovers that his or her FMLA rights have been violated.
Filing a Private Lawsuit

An employee also has the right to file a private lawsuit under the FMLA
in any Federal or state court of competent jurisdiction. The FMLA is
subject to a statute of limitations. This means that, generally, suit
must be filed within two years after the last action that the employee
believes was in violation of the FMLA, or three years if the violation
was willful. (It is up to the court to rule whether the alleged
violation occurred and, if so, whether it was willful.) A state
employee's right to private action may be limited.

something and the old prick caught the cold! My bet is he got a cold
and turned into Pneumonia. The worst thing that can happen to someone
who has a lung disease and on oxygen is getting pneumonia.i wonder if
the person  who gave it to Hunter infected him on purpose!!! If he did
do it on purpose we should erect a statute of this manager sneazing on

Anyone wanting the stock to crash with massive sell offs is cutting off
their own foot. Investors give corporations a cash lifeline. What
happens now? Mantle Ridge pulling out the $1 billion it invested? Stock
could get cut in half. I sold all my CSX stock which I've bought &
owned for decades while working this year at a healthy profit. I'd buy
back in if hits back in the $20's & '$30s. Mike Wards people are gone.
I don't know anything about Foote. Today there's no CEO on CSX. The

Mr. Foote, Please take the time to check out what everyone is saying
about your late friend Hunter on social media. Despite your rosy
memories of Ewing, He is/was a VERY HATED man. A lot of the job cuts he
made went way beyond what was necessary, a lot of the changes he made
were out of malevolence against the working men, and the unions. He had
very little regard for the personal harm he caused for so many people,
communities, and even our very own customers. I urge you not to follow
his path, but instead to be a voice of reason and compassion when
dealing with the employees that make this company successful. An army
divided is doomed to failure. But a company that is united can form a
great empire!

I can't speak intelligently about The Ble-t website.  Other than their
the dumbasses that negotiate our contracts.  They seldom ever
understand  the meaning of a contract they signed off on. They
regularly have an arbitrator to rule on the wording of a contract after
it's passed.  They probably didn't realize or don't care that we are
tied to the national on wage increase and H&W. They may need an
arbitrator for this too or it may have been a typo.

I forgot to mention Dumbass. You will get a check around February for
the CSX BLE-T SSA productivity bonus. From what I hear seeing I'm
retired it'll be pretty good this year possibly maxing out at 12%.
Which one would I take? If I made $100,000 this year that would be
$12,000 productivity bonus. Or, the national contract back time for
2016 & 2017 getting maybe $3000-$5000. There is no productivity bonus
under any national contract. Maybe you'll also get a wage increase
under the SSA not sure of that schedule. You're clueless.

HELP!!!


Some one needs to start a watch dog group and find out how certain
engineers are getting  second tickets and getting them paid when others
cant. You are called for short turn around service to relieve line of
road trains and after 8 hours, 130 miles or traveling over 35 miles in
one direction you are entitled to a second ticket. Its so black and
white it isn't even funny. The trick is they are giving J tickets
under kind of service 4 as a road switcher instead of a ticket for the
train you relieved( such as a Q12311R. Then you demand your second
ticket after 8 hours they make it another J job with either the date
changed or the symbol but still make it a kind of service four and
insist they have the right to combine road switcher tickets and only
pay one.  We are not relieving road switchers and the the union
agreement says that road switcher jobs will be assigned and have set
days to work with no more than 100 miles per day. How the hell can they
call you a road switcher when the agreement is very clear they are
assigned jobs with assigned days to work. They are ripping every one of
us off except...... the ones who are sucking up and taking every single
job they can get called for and volunteering all the time to do extra
work for no extra tickets. We have been watching these guys and every
single time they get two or more tickets and get paid. Someone got a
hold of their info and its showing when they get away with this and a
lot of times their history states that they had no home terminal
available at released location! This is total bullshit. They are called
out of their home terminal to dog catch and return to their home
terminals with the train. So how does that work. They drag a train in
and when CMC puts in the second ticket they make it look like they took
a train to an outlying point where there was no terminal or hotel to go
to and came back so they get another ticket for going out again!! They
aren't making them take a second J ticket either. They have been
getting the through freight train symbol. I don't get it. This is
outright lying and false information. I would live the see the mile
post they put on these guys tickets to show where they left from and
came back! 
This is total bullshit that these guys are getting favoritism when we
are doing the same thing they are and they are no better than we are.
They are called for J jobs just like us and should be screwed over the
same way with the bogus road switcher crap they are using on all of us
who are not doing one single thing as an assigned road switcher. Its
time we all started demanding that our tickets reflect the real work we
are doing. If we are going out and dragging in dead through freight
trains then we all need to demand that our tickets reflect the kind of
service it really is, Kind of service 2 and not this bullshit road
switching service. A road switcher is called a road switcher because it
does switching service. The damn through road freight trains on long
pools are not road switchers. 
Enough of this shit and this favoritism. We need to start blowing these
guys in who are getting these tickets when others aren't.

I have consistently dogged out our unions since I started at CSX and
have done so openly. On several occasions, these pro union guys in the
locker rooms have told me that 
"you know if it weren't for the union"....
1. We would be called to work and they could make us do whatever they
want.
2. We wouldn't make the money we do, or even get decent pay raises.
3. They could hold us over for 12 hours and not give you an option or
another ticket.
4. They could fire anyone of us just because they want to.
5. They could combine the work of several jobs and put it on one crew
so they could cut jobs off.
6. They could get rid of weekend off days
7. They could generally make life miserable for us any way they wanted
to.

Well there is more but here is a good start if anyone else wants to add
on here.

Corresponding examples for each:
1. Y134 in the job description says 1st shift pulling job. Oh we need
you to go work this industry because Y138 layed off and we can't fill
it. Oh yeah and bleed off the 28 cars you brought back so we don't
have to give it to the carman.
2. Decent pay means I should be able work 40+ hours a week and
comfortably support my family. This last pay raise was a joke, my cost
of living went up more in the last 2 years than my raises.
3. I sure thought there was a protocol for such situations, but if
there is no relief for your job you are staying.
4. They sure have been targeting individuals in the past 6 months or
so.
5. Look how many jobs have been combined and how many jobs have been
cut off.
6. Weekend off days? There might be 3-5 jobs per terminal with weekends
off, guess who gets those and guess how long you will have to be here to
get it.
7. It has become more and more miserable and it will get worse. 

Bonus item: The Crew Attendance Point System sucks 
Extra bonus item: The Daily Vacation and Personal Leave days caps can
and do get manipulated, it's bad enough now that guys end up carrying
over days not because they want to save them but because they can't
use them.
Last bonus item: Where did demand days for conductors go? Thanks Union

Final thought: Thank you union,I am so glad to know that we pay our
dues and you have our backs when we need you! You are worthless and
need to earn your checks. We don't pay you to get in bed with the
company! We know the company pays you better than we do but what we do
pay we should something out of it! You are a joke!!

Our only hope is to make the news with something big, we can shut this
country down within a few days, especially this time of year!

A previous poster had it right when they stated its the unions that
have all of us in a trick bag. Its the language in the agreements that
cause all the trouble and if you want something done you better start
getting together now and start demanding that the article be cleaned up
and the gray areas tossed out.
Someone keeps complaining about doing the local work of industries on
through freight trains.  Look at the engineers agreement. Pay attention
to the language.  
Look at article 57. After you have read it thoroughly look at article
50. They are using the language "road service" to blanket line of
road/through freight service. Look how they agreed in article 50 to
allow them to work you two or more classes of service in a day or
trip.
This is where the unions have screwed you and opened the door to make
you do two different jobs. If you are called out to work and you are
forced to work an industry that is not setting off cars in line of
road. That is working an industry. If you think it is going to delay
your trip to the AFHT or the HT then you should demand that your KS
should be road switcher rate with overtime after 8. Ask around. Find
out what kind of pay rate a road switcher would make for the miles you
are trip rated for. Good chance you will make more money with the
overtime after 8 hrs.  Article 50 makes it clear you will be paid the
highest rate applicable of any class of service. You also have another
penalty claim because if you are working as a road switcher and your
trip is over 100 miles that is a violation. The road switcher article
makes it clear that road switcher runs will not be over 100 miles. They
shouldn't be making road freight trains do the damn work in the first
place. They are violating the articles all over the place!

You want things to change then do something about it. Read the
language. Go after the unions for all the garbage inserted so the
company can use it for loop holes.  You better start pushing to get the
language cleaned up or start figuring out how to get the better pay rate
you are entitled to.

If your retired then you should know that all retirement saving plans
are formulated on a 3% inflation formula. That is playing it moderately
safe. We all know that the government can make or break our entire lives
with the stroke of a pen. We are in the middle of that right now! 4% is
the safest course of action to make sure you are not going to be in the
poor house if the economy tanks, medical insurance companies run rampant
again and our new POTUS doesn't tax us to death or end up taking
control of our RR retirement, which the feds have been trying to do
forever!  The feds are never going to tell anyone the whole truth and
nothing but the truth. If they were to tell the American people that
inflation was higher than 2% then people would expect their social
security raises to be treated as the same. Bottom line is, its nice to
get a raise. Of course it is, but every time we get one we end up
having a chunk  of this or that taken out of it. If it isn't medical
premiums or out of pocket expenses, it is a raise in our union dues and
a work rule change that screws us out of pay or trip rate changes or
they agree to add a heavier work load on us to cut jobs. Just like the
road crews who are supposed to be working through freight. They have
then doing local road switching work and cut local road jobs out.  We
have never ever had a raise that didn't come with a price.  As far as
Im concerned 4% is bullshit if they are going to keep pinching out of
it every time!

Yes, the pattern contract if one union or group signs before all have
resolved issues. Seen it, had it happen in the past. It can work two
ways by holding out it can accomplish getting a little more or one can
get screwed. I understand that railroads & corporations are making
record profits and they still list labor costs as the major block to
making more profits. Welcome back my friends to the show that never
ends: Ronald Reagan and Trickle Down Economics. The same old BS of give
backs and give a ways to those on top that'll never reach the middle &
bottom. Labor has become the fall guy. Same goes for the middle class.
Within my lifetime of 63 years I've witnessed the rise of the
multi-million class by the late '80s to the rise of the billionaire
class starting the in late '90s to today. Labor is stagnant. The only
thing certain jobs like railroads have going for it is the ability to
work more. We've never made what I consider a decent hourly wage. As a
locomotive engineer working the road under mileage my income was based
on how many runs I made within a half & the mileage of the run. Been
retired for a few years but we were under $26 an hour when it was
broken down by basic 130 mile day.

Our negotiations are at the same point as the BLE. Our contract ended
in 2015, like everyone else we've went without a raise for over 2
years. If any one union ratifies this contract it will be considered
the pattern agreement that all other unions will be expected to abide
by. For the last decade railroads have enjoyed record profits off our
backs. There should be zero concessions.

I don't know if striking is even an option at this point. Why did the
BMWE opt out of the union coalition and go on it's own? The BMWE is
the only other member with the BLE-T in the IBT Rail Conference. I
don't know where your contract negotiations are within the RLA. The
RLA is a long dragged out process with negotiations, cooling off
periods, back the table, more cooling off, mediation etc... which can
go on for 3-4 years till both sides agree to disagree with no
resolution.

Labor's strength didn't come from some bullshitting politicians. It
came from men who had the balls to stand up to greedy corporations and
demand what was rightfully their's. If you think some political party
is going to do the dirty work for you, you are sadly mistaken. Vote no

To those wanting to vote "no" on this contract better do your homework
on what are the next options. There are none. Trump can appoint a
Presidential Emergency Board or let Congress handle it. A PEB under
Trump would be disaster mostly his rich cronies who would side with the
railroads. Congress you don't want to go there, it'll open up
Pandora's box. It'll give them the right to not only dictate the
contract but also the right to go after Railroad Retirement, single man
crews, letting outside contractors in, the list goes on. Paul Ryan has
tried to go after RRB for years. He wants to strip it down to Social
Security levels. Even though RRB doesn't cost taxpayers one thin dime.
As for healthcare yours is inexpensive compared to what's out there.
The unions managed to cap it so no increase in the premium. The
railroads wish list was premiums of $750 for employee add the family
for another $750 totaling $1500 a month. Look at PEB 219 back around
1991 at what happened. Railroaders lost a lot. This contract only runs
to 2020 which there's back time included. Those unions on CSX that
already have on-property contracts till 2020 like the BLE the national
is about healthcare. Under HH most likely the last on-property
contract. Unless he gets his hourly wage package. Which would cut
around 30-40% of all jobs.

To Amazed, 
                     I respect your opinion. We are all entitled to
one. However, if you’re going to degrade railroaders for being less
intelligent than you, I suggest you spell check first. 
“appenertly” is not a word. Also, I know of very few craft workers that
earn an average of $100k annually.  And if they do earn that much, it’s
definitely a detriment to their quality of life. We’re talking 65-80
hour work weeks. Even offshore-men get decent time off away from work,
generally 21days on 21days off. Every penny railroaders make is earned.

The only chance you have to fight this CEO is help from the government.
Pushing for the government to issue a cease and desist to the CEO for
interfering with interstate commerce and numerous contract violations
for both the union and shippers is a great option. Someone needs to tie
that meddling fools hands before he destroys anymore lives. The shippers
coalition is a union alliance must. Maybe together they can stop him.
Others have not banded together and the result was a mess. Do not wait.
Push hard and fast to remove him. He is pushing faster and harder now
that this is his third go around at this. Hunter Harrison is relying on
employees being afraid to comply with the rules in order to move
freight. He is relying on each employee being afraid to stand up and
say something because there will be reprucusions. Essentially silincing
the work force while he has his way. Do not be afraid, under different
circumstances this is considered rape. Legal professionals, not
everyday “I think I am a lawyer but I don’t have a degree” individuals
need to be avoided. This belongs is true professional legal hands.

To Locomotive Engineer with less than 1 year of service; 
It’s imperative that you and everyone else read this contract proposal
in its entirety. The $220 a month is only agreed upon until the end of
2019. At that point it can and probably will increase drastically .
Also keep in mind that your deductibles for individual and family are
increasing to $350/$700. That’s quite the hike. As per work rule
changes, the national agreement is just a guideline in my opinion. The
individual carrier can go back and make amendments as they see fit. I’d
rather work without a contract for the next 8 years than keep giving up
more and more of our hard earned benefits. If CSX can afford to pay one
man $300 million for 4 years, they can afford to leave our health
insurance alone and give us 3% cost of living raises annually. We have
the right to self-help (strike) after the PEB meetings conclude. Let’s
see how it plays out.

insurance. I looked into it and for us to pay $220 A month is a deal.
Compare what you can get on the open market and compare where we will
have if it passes.just go to Obama care page and you can see for
yourself. We actually don't have bad insurance compare to what other
people pay. Now you can all call me a asshole or I do t know what I'm

GET SMART!

The writing is on the wall and every seasoned railroader knows that if
the Union wants the proposal passed it will be. A no vote is a yes
vote. When was the last time anyone was able to force a recount or has
even challenged the unions.  No one sticks together or even wants to
try. There was a post on here from someone who said they quit paying
their dues in april. Let him explain how he has done it and see how
long he has a job after the company finds out and they fire him.  My
family has made a big decision. we will ride this contract out. In the
meantime we are cutting corners on everything. No more wasted money
spent. No big purchases. No more designer clothes for the kids. No more
eating out. Cheap bread and peanut butter for everyone. Every dime we
can stick in the bank we are doing and waiting to see what happens
later on down the road. If you guys are wise you will do the same
thing. This isn't a joke anymore. This clown is going to be here

become a place from hell to work for! It is bad enough that they lay
jobs in on Christmas and refuse to allow anyone who has days on the
books to use them to cover that day when they couldn't get them by
bidding but now they want everyone to be on call like mules just like
any other day of the year.  If he does this then you all know that he
is no better than the devil himself. Mark off for church. Mark off for

the message that your families come first on this holiday no matter how
evil he his and you will not let him come in between you and your
family on this holy day.  I have already bought my plane tickets and
will spend this sacred holiday with my family. I don't care how many
points they punish me with. I refuse to let the evil take my time away
from me and my family to Celebrate Christmas. I hope everyone does the
right thing and stands up for their rights as I will. Discipline me.
Give me your points. Threaten me with your nasty availability letter.

ATTENTION ALL INVESTORS!
 
Us employees are watching this place unravel at an alarming rate. Many
of us had hoped that Hunter Harrison was going to reveal some real
changes that would really turn this company around. But NO, it isn't
happening! 

He's a HOAX, a CON MAN. a BULLSHIT artist of epic proportions! 

Those of us who have worked here for many decades have seen many
management styles. Some better than others. This guy has nothing! He is
making changes around here that are just devastating our customers,
Slowing down the operation. Chasing away customers. Then he lies about
it to Wall St. and comes up with fake stats. that show things
improving, when they are most definitely NOT!

 This part of the railroad where I work has managed to stay fluid up
until recently, mostly because he hasn't made any big changes, up till
now. Now he has modified things drastically and everything is coming
unglued! WE ARE CHASING AWAY ALL OUR BEST CUSTOMERS! He has his goons
threatening the workforce to the point that everyone feels that they
are going to all be fired tomorrow. Now the men are just blindly
following orders given, by men who haven't a clue about the operation,
and who are one making bad decision after another. We aren't even
questioning it anymore! If you question anything you are severely
punished. 

 The board of directors are all in Hunters pocket and will not go
against him. He is scuttling this ship, and it is going down. Most of
us employees are stockholders as well.

AND WE ARE UNLOADING ALL OUR STOCK!

YOU SHOULD TOO!

2 Top Railroad Stocks to Consider Buying Now -- and 1 to Avoid



Beware of the turnaround sequel
Shares of CSX jumped more than 20% last January, after word leaked that
activist fund Mantle Ridge would attempt to replicate the turnaround
Bill Ackman's Pershing Square Capital Management spearheaded at
Canadian Pacific. CSX's stock eventually hit an all-time high as part
of the excitement. 

Part of the CSX playbook was recruiting 72-year-old Hunter Harrison,
the architect of the CP turnaround, to run the U.S. railroad. Harrison
was named CEO of CSX in March.

CSX freight train in Washington, D.C. Image source: National
Transportation Safety Board, via Flickr.

It's still early in the process, but so far the big winners were the
existing CSX investors who took their gains as soon as the activists
got involved. So far Harrison's playbook of slashing costs and
streamlining operations has at least initially led to service delays
and added rail congestion.

The STB, the industry's regulator, in September held a public session
to hear complaints from shippers about CSX service disruptions.

CSX tends to run shorter routes through more congested, urban areas
compared to its Western and Canadian Peers, making streamlining a more
complicated proposition. The company, thanks to the stock run-up, is
also by some measures the most expensive in the sector. Add in that
Harrison has had health issues and the faith that the turnaround will
be completed and the valuation will be justified must be brought into
question.

CSX, a hodgepodge of dozens of railroads consolidated over a
three-decade span, culminating with the disastrous 1999 takeover of
Conrail, certainly has considerable costs to trim and efficiencies to
be extracted. But previous efforts to do so have ended up as quagmires.
There's no compelling reason to be confident this time will be any
different.

UNION MEMBERS

Old retires who worked under HH have constantly posted how managers
were are forced to work the union brothers jobs because of shortages.
Let me assure you, this is not Canada and if HH thinks our unions are
that easily busted he is in for a surprise. Once again as it has been
posted on here before, if you witness any supervisor doing the work of
any union member REPORT IT IMMEDIATELY.  File a claim and report it to
your LC immediately. This is one of the highest violations of our Union
agreements and will not be tolerated. This claim has been paid in the
past several times and the Managers were punished accordingly. This
will not be tolerated!

will the rest of the railroads follow harrison's lead or sit back and
laugh as he destroys csx? 

when hunter harrison moves on in a couple years from old age, how long
will it take the employees of csx to recover from the mayhem he caused?
 or will csx ever recover?   

and will the harrison family name be forever associated with other
names such as bernard madoff and enron?

i personally think he's a great guy, and i wish i could buy him a
beer.

Crews 

Did any body check their time tickets early this morning and discover
that every single one of them that were already reported had all the
information on them deleted. Everyone one for the last 35 days. Said
system error in upper left hand corner of screen. Legal posted that
info that was already reported and stored wasn't supposed to modified
once it was. How did the system make all the info of all our tickets
disappear??? Funny how this happened after someone posted about info
being hidden or missing from a lot of recrew tickets. Other guys looked
at theirs too and the info was gone. Something smells rotten.

Ah, c'mon. If you've been around a little while you should know how it
is:  The co. violates Contractual Agreements constantly. The recourse is
to submit penalty claims.  Employee history is something
at least.  The real reason for penalty claims is to make 'em ante up -
stop the practice of whatever. Hit 'em with extra expense(s). Bear in
mind that if you work at/in a terminal where many claims are put in,
multiply that by each & every terminal on the system - payroll sees a
lot.  Go ahead if you wish, waste your time with the FRA.

ANYBODY!!!


What the hell is going on here. Its bad enough we get our valid claim
denied after being forced to do work in violation of our union
agreement which I might add was signed by CSX and agreed upon, but now
all the sudden we are having problems with getting information to prove
these claims. I have noticed that most the time it is when you recrew a
train. Every time you activate your bulletins the TMCI screen is
supposed to reflect that you were the second crew on that train. My LC
has asked me to give him a copy of this as more proof I was on that
train and lately the info has been missing. Sometimes I cant print a
ticket when I recrew a train because the computer says there isn't any
info for the date of the ticket. How the hell can there not be any info
for a ticket you just submitted. I have even waited a few days to see
if maybe it was just not going through yet. Only proof I got that I was
called for that train is in my history. That isn't shit.  That ticket
has FRA hos reporting info. Do I have to call the FRA and ask them to
get that ticket now. That's what legal posted. Maybe they should be
looking into this pattern that's happening with recrewing trains!

All Crafts

FRA law 227.221 addresses record keeping requirements and explains in
detail how these records can be stored and your right to obtain your
own personal information. Read it very carefully. A specific question
has been submitted to us several times over the last few months and it
involves the right of the employee to ask for a copy of his/her
employee records. Many want to know how to obtain a copy of a pay/time
ticket that has been removed from view because it is over 35 days old.
You have a right to receive a copy of this record. Contact your human
resource department and be governed by their instructions. If you
encounter any problems you do have a legal right to involve your FRA
inspector who handles the operating rules. For those of you who are
concerned that pay/time tickets are being altered or any information is
not being submitted as intended this law makes it very clear that each
record can not be modified in any way, or replaced, once the record had
been transmitted and stored. If you feel that this law has been violated
then you must contact your FRA representative immediately and be
governed by his/her instructions. Paper copies of electronic records
and amendments to those records ,that may be necessary to document
compliance with this part of law shall be made available for inspection
and copying/photocopying by a representative of the FRA. Remember, it is
very important that you make a copy of all information that you have
submitted whether it be a pay/time ticket, claim or correspondence with
a company representative. If you encounter problems with this then you
should immediately request the help of a company official. If you are
unable to obtain a copy of the information that you were requesting
before you leave your place of employment make sure you document the
time, place and name of the company official that assisted in your
ability to do so. If your attempt was unsuccessful and was due to
technical errors on any electronic devise such as a printer you must
get the address of such devise. This information will help the FRA
inspector that you chose to involve with his request in retrieving your
personal record.

Anyone heard that the great idea of precision railroading is an illegal
scam? The idea revolves around pushing the switching work out on the
main line and then not properly air brake testing trains while every
other class 1 has to . If there are two or more separate blocks of cars
to be set out or picked up the entire train needs to be retested.
Managers are designing this work, handing it out, overseeing it on the
mainline and claiming ignorance of properly arranging the required air
tests.? It’s a joke, a very illegal one at that. All of the other
carriers who are following federal requirements should be pissed that
this guy gets to do this and post lower operating numbers because of
illegal activity. He is also creating an unfair market place for his
competitors while they adhere to federal requirements and he does not.
The management is responsible when they design work that they also
require the proper air test be done. They are not . They are also
banking on the opposite.

Dear Monitor,

The Chief doesn't update train schedules. The computer does that or
Jax not closing out old profiles. Only trains ordered to be called by
the chief show in ur lineups as ordered. And they don't have
answering
machines to leave a message. Lol.


- 
  
JAX being net ops, NOT crew management.  Callers can go in and
"delete" anything from the line up but if its still a profiled train
the system will regenerate it automatically; no matter how many times
its deleted.  The train must be annulled for it to drop from the line
up I believe.  Crew cannot annul any trains, only call with the
authorizations given on a train. Some- not all callers should be able
to explain this.  Many new callers with minimal training working at
Crew now, so answers may vary depending on your caller

How much money did csx waste building north baltimore..... $175
million,...hunters 300 million dollars to run the railroad (that
includes hunters cp buyout..... $84 million) plus let's say another 25
million (conservertly) to hire all of his ex cn Minions plus buy outs
for ex csx managers and bosses (Michael ward). 500 million dollars.....
a half of trillion??? Congratulations to the csx board of directors,
your greed got you hunter harrison  (after 9 months he shaved off 9
tenths of 1 point off the operating ratio..... buy the way Jim squires
of the NS got there operating ratio lower then csx's already) and your

Please don't advice people to call CMC about the train line up fields
they view to see scheduled trains.  This is the responsibility of the
Dispatch center. If there are trains on the line up that don't exist
or have already been called and haven't been removed it is something
they are doing. I know that usually after a train is called it will
disappear from the schedule. For some reason some trains are not being
removed. You need to call your Chief and let them know what you are
seeing. We have no control over this. I cant say for certain but I
think there is something in your union agreements that cover this. If
you are called short or surprised by an extra train or maybe you miss a
call because a train is called out of order or an extra is called with a
different date other than what was listed you are protected because it
states that train line ups must be accurate. Again Im not sure how it
is worded but I have been told you are protected from discipline for
this. I know I have to miscall people all the time because they don't
think they will be getting called after viewing the screen and they get
caught short. I have to explain to them they need to contact their union
representation because I cant help them. My hands are tied. This is an
issue with your dispatch center.

If those jobs are regular assigned jobs that have regular starting and
off duty times then yes they are supposed to give you another ticket.
They can ask you if you want the over time but they cant force you to
work another shift on a regular assigned job without paying you their
shift.  Call you local chairman. 

Right now as we speak the train line up information on the great lakes
division has bogus trains on the schedule. They are also showing trains
that have already been called and worked or are working at this very
moment. As usual they have information screwed up and are leaving
people wondering if they are going to run a second train and just
haven't bothered to change scheduled dates and times. 
This crap needs to be addressed as soon as it happens, You should be
calling  the CMC and asking why they are showing duplicate trains and
trains that have already been run and delivered.
Everyone needs to start jumping on this crap and start making calls.
Call your Local and point out what is going on. Nothing is going to
change if people don't start standing up for themselves and start
making noise.  Call the FRA fatigue specialist and hours of service
inspector and tell them what's going on with these train line up
problems. Its better to raise hell as a group. Flood their phone lines.
 Start raising some hell!

"Why is the FRA not listed. Are they not considered supervisors of the
railroad? "

FRA are regulators, aka government agents, they are not supervisors,
nor employees of CSX.  CSX operating rules do not apply to FRA or
federal agents (such as TSA).  They have their own rules,regulations
and policy's regarding activities, behavior and conduct.

There are plenty of people leaving, and there are people who have had
their jobs cut that have no intention of coming back. We sacrifice
quality of life for a good income and security of our jobs and
benefits. Alot of that is either gone or alot less promising than it
was before this old bastard got here. My seniority was getting good and
meant alot just last year, now I'm on the bottom and worse than i was
my first year! I got a great job myself. It's a pay cut to start, but
within a year, I'll be equal to or greater than where I am except
I'll sleep at home every day, I'll know when I work and know when
I'm off. I'll be able to control when I sleep, what I eat, whether or
not I can exercise, I'll be able to keep my grass mowed, I won't have
to carry 70 lbs of bags everywhere.... And you know, a year ago, I
would've said I plan on retiring on the railroad with no intention of
ever doing anything else. I would've taken my lumps, taken another
furlough if necessary, you know, but with all the extra bullshit and
changes, all the extra stress, the insecurity that is moving in, I
don't have the slightest bit of hesitation to leave. I'm ready. Next
week brothers. I love(d) the job and the people I worked with, but

VANGUARD MARKET PRESS RELEASE

CSX SERVICE DISRUPTIONS TO BE DISCUSSED AT WASHINGTON REGULATORY
HEARING


8:02 AM EDT, 10/11/2017m(MT Newswire)--CSX service disruptions will be
addressed at a Wednesday "listening session" before the U.S. Surface
Transportation Board in Washington D.C. according to a report filed by
Reuters.
Dow DuPonts Dow chemical unit and privately held agricultural
manufacturer Cargill (DOW) are expected to speak before the top U.S.
rail regulators about their experiences with the CSX rail network. The
network has been hurt by service problems since the summer.
CSX will be given the chance to defend its new operating strategy, the
report said. 

Will be real interesting to see what HH has as an excuse for disrupting
one of the largest well known manufacturing companies in the country!

For the guy that said get involved with the union. I am a former local
chairman and have voted for my local the way they voted to in the past.
After some of the PTC agreements passed I asked for a vote count and was
told no. It’s hard to get more involved when it feels like the company
has the union in its back pocket and just passes what they want. This
new tentative agreement seems good but hopefully everyone reads the
whole thing even the co-pay part on how they go up and is not blind
sided by it when it happens. I just wish they would add a few sick
days, when on the road all the time and you get sick you have nowhere

I would hope those furloughed would get the back time they're entitled
to seeing they still have a relationship with the carrier. Those who
resigned are SOL seeing they signed off on everything ending the
relationship. It's been many years but I remember getting back time
after the 1978 contract and I was furloughed at the time for my regular
winter furlough out of Walbridge. It wasn't much seeing I hired out in

Hey CSX wanna save millions a year and make crews happy?
Run a train from point a to b and one from point b to a and put one in
the hole half way and when they meet have the crews swap. This way you
will run half way the go back home. Everyone is home every night and
you don't pay millions to the hotels annually. Then with the money you
save you could pay us a little better or at the very least pay for our
boots again.

Hey guys, this is my first contract renewal. As far as the back pay is
concerned, do they pay that soon after the contract is agreed upon? Do
you get it if you are furloughed? What about someone that resigned?
Would they still get that too? Technically they were under the contract
at the time. Any info would be greatly appreciated!

 Eugene goes to the vet and says, "My horse is constipated."

The vet says, "Take one of these pills, put it in a long tube, stick
the other end in the horse's ass, and blow the pill up there."

  Eugene comes back the next day, and he looks very sick.

The vet says, "What happened?"

 Eugene says, "The horse blew first."

All Crews

A few more Trainmasters have hit the dirt.  Hell days are returning.
Like the days when CSX took over Conrail and they ran the good ones
out, the new HH hit squad is doing the same. Three more TM's are
stepping down and getting out while they still have a soul.


Word from payroll to TM's.... It is not your responsibility nor should
it even be your concern if the crews get paid. If they have an issue
with their pay they can create a case and take it up with their Local
representation!

So when the Chief refuses to give any one a second ticket as agreed
upon per your union agreement or cuts your miles or puts you on the
wrong kind of service, it wont do you a damn bit of good going to your
TM for help. If they promise they will get you your second ticket while
you are out doing the extra work then they are just blowing smoke up
your butt or they just don't know they have no say so any more. HH is
hell bent on destroying the union agreements and making ever member
miserable. Everyone knows what to do. In the meantime it is now more
important than ever to stick together and file as many claims as
possible. This is a war now.

You got it all wrong about North Baltimore, have any of you been there
to see the place?

Double leads on both ends almost a mile long on west end, mile half on
east...


Take out the cranes and you have a perfectly flat , super flat
switching yard taylor made to pump out freight.  They will be closing
all manifest freight out of Willard, New Castle, Garrett, Toledo and
switch it there. And since it’s an intermodal property, all work will
be done by private contractors in the yard.

It really is closing. Think about it this way, csx intermodal has
agreements to use private contractors, utility men that aren't csx,
Carmen that aren't csx, it's all private contractors that were agreed
upon when north Baltimore opened. If the same work is done in Willard,
which is csx transportation, not csx intermodal, by csx guys that are
already there, and are going to be without work soon anyways, then they
save alot of money. Repurpose Willard, you're utilizing assets. Sell
north Baltimore, it's too small for our needs anyways, and you make a
profit to cover the changes

Has everyone got there csx magazine. This magazine would make Joseph
Goebbels smile from his nazi grave. My favorite part of the magazine is
the 2 pictures of hunter harrison. The one picture gotta be from at
least 5 years ago while he was at the CP and then there was the current
picture of him sitting in a chair at his first "Hunter Camp" with
about 30 kool-aid drinking managers behind him.this guy looks like he
is on his death bed. Funny how he has to cut costs or as he likes to
say "control costs" across the system with job cuts and furloughs,
but how much did he spend on this magazine? Paying people to interview
the kool-aid drinkers, take pictures, printing and  the postage alone
probably cost thousands. That on top of remodeling his office in
Jacksonville that's he's never at.... millions of dollars wasted for
his pet projects, but call me a brake man when I have 150 cars to
switch with 98 cuts is out of the question.

If a co. officer (or other) performs a function\task that is supposed
to be done by a contact employee - penalty day claim.  If an officer
(or other) supplements a crew [ie: works a shift, day, trip as a

2-T/E extra boards will soon be combined so you can be called for any

3-Managers will soon be required to protect engineer and conductor

4-Freight pool guys, local guys, and regularly assigned yard guys will

There are things that road foreman didn't know. Most managers became

means they've never spent time on an engine. Probably like yourself

BLET MEMBERS

Rumors are flying around that the BLET turned down offer of pay raise
offered (53.00) and said no to other offers. Asked LC and he said he
wasn't sure what was happening.  What the hell am I paying these damn
union reps for if I can get an straight answer from an LC. None of us
at work want this super pool crap. No way does any of us want to be on
one big extra board working every single job in our division. Besides,
we have shit load of territory to run over from Toledo Ohio to St Louis
Illinois with locals and yard jobs. Half the guys are qualified both
directions and it would take over a year to get everyone qualified
everywhere. Some ex TM's who are back on the ground are saying HH is
saying everyone only needs one qualifying run to be trained. IF this is
true this quy is a frickin crazy nut crack case. Especially when we go
on foreign lines and some yards are screwed up as hell. One trip does
not make someone truly qualified. The FRA has to stand up on this one.
A pilot extra board better be established too.  This whole thing is
starting to smell like one big unsafe loser stink pile to most of us!

The last furlough I heard about was before the stb got involved. That's
what made me think that. I know in other situations, the stb made them
call people back, and imposed fines for manpower shortages. Even under
the old regime, this situation calls for cuts. I think this guy is
waiting for the meeting, or possibly/probably the fourth quarter to
make his numbers look good

Did the surface transportation board put a stop to furloughs until the
meeting or something? With the lost business and the normal fall/
winter slowdown starting, there isn't much work. Our extra board has
had 21 turns for a month now, and it's not turning. It takes a week to
go to work for 1 trip. I'm not wishing for it, it just seems strange to
keep that many turns on it and keep paying guarantee when it's not even
being used. Anyone know anything about that?

I notice awhile back there was a system notice about how the selection
for engine school would be. They said training would be in Atlanta. I
thought they shut down the redi center down? So why the fuck would I
have to travel 500 plus mile to go to engine school if the redi  
center's shut down. Rumor I heard the last day a class was finished
(I'm not sure what the traing was for) they were taking  stuff off the
walls and boxing it up and shipping it out.why not train people closers
to there home terminals or even regionally. No fucking reason to go to
Atlanta if there is no redi center.

UTU/BLET MEMBERS

Your union reps are keeping too quiet.  They are either being left in
the dark or they are being told to keep their mouths shut if they want
to keep their positions.  HH is no doubt sitting down with his teams
and labor relations. They are hashing out what they can and cant do and
how close they can skid on thin ice with the language of their new
working terms and conditions. Your International reps are not wanting
anyone to know what is in the works because they know if the members
find out and don't agree with some of the issues all hell will break
lose and they will either be forced to continue a fight with the
company or lose their positions on the next elections. You have a right
by federal law to know what your unions are planning for you. Corner
your LC's every chance you get and demand they find out what is on the
table right now. What are they discussing. If they wont give you answers
start calling your GC office and faxing letters demanding they give you
the info on active discussions. You can bet your bottom dollar if
anything is agreed on behind closed doors with out the members being
made aware first and it ends up being a negative impact on the members,
someone got a kick back under the table.  Its bad enough that we now
have yardmasters who are union contract employees and turning on us.
The last thing we need is union reps at the negotiating tables padding
their pockets.
On another note, if you hear any Yardmaster make any remarks that are
degrading towards any T&E craft and accuse any of them of "pushing
back" or accusing them of deliberate sabotage of any job you need to
report this to your LC immediately and call his LC and report him for
conduct unbecoming a union member in violation of his union
constitution.

YARDMASTERS ARE UNION CONTRACT EMPLOYEES. THEY ARE NOT SUPERVISORS BUT
THEY ARE ACTING UNDER THE SUPERVISION OF A NON CONTRACT EMPLOYEE. THEY
ARE NOT IN THE SAME UNION BUT THEY ARE STILL UNION BROTHERS IN OUR
BUSINESS. IF THEY ARE UNDERMINING THE MORAL AND BASHING OTHER UNION
MEMBERS THEY ARE CREATING A HOSTILE WORK ENVIORNMENT FOR OTHER UNION
MEMBERS. REPORT THEM TO THEIR LOCAL CHAIRMAN. FILE A COMPLAINT! THEY
REPORT TO UPPER MANAGEMENT. THEIR POSITION IS ALREADY A CONFLICT OF
INTEREST. THEY HAVE TO DIVIDE THEIR LOYALTY BETWEEN THEIR UNION
BROTHERS AND MANAGEMENT. THEIR FIRST PRIORITY SHOULD BE TO THEIR UNION
BROTHERS. IF THEY CANT DO THAT THEN THEY NEED TO STEP DOWN AND GO BACK
TO THE CRAFT OR GET OUT OF THE SEAT AND MOVE UP INTO A MANAGMENT
POSITION. THER IS NO ROOM IN THIS BUSINESS FOR SOMEONE WHO PLAYS BOTH
SIDES.

CSX converted seven of its dozen hump yards to flat-switching facilities
and has made 1,300 train plan changes since March. The pace of change
has moderated over the past few weeks, and in late August, CSX reopened
the hump at Avon Yard in Indianapolis to relieve congestion at a half
dozen terminals on its western corridor.

And the only reason the numbers look better, is they changed the way
things are measured, and instead of showing cars parked in a yard, they
show a whole train parked in a yard, which doesn't show as dwell time,
it shows it as crew change, terminal staging, but it's the same cars
sitting, just like they were before. We're on our 7th trainmaster in 2

Baltimore trains aren't making it in without a recrew. Our trains that
work get recrewed every day, some of them get recrewed 3 or 4 times!!
Every siding, I mean every one is full of loaded auto racks that can't
get unloaded in lordstown because they cut too many jobs. There are over
a hundred loaded auto racks just parked. No plan for them. They won't
call extra jobs to get them processed, and the utility jobs are gone.
Nobody is in charge of it because Willard has too much on their plate.
It's fucked up bad. A chemical place sent an email that if they
didn't receive their cars in 8 hours, that they would have to shut
down, and the city of Akron was in a position to declare a state of
emergency because it didn't have the chemicals needed for the city's
water supply. How the fuck do they think anything is fixed???? What a

History lesson for the PUPS!

You think its bad now? Just wait. History is getting ready to repeat
itself. You young pups weren't here when CSX first took over conrail.
When they came to avon yard they slowly weeded out(HH favorite term
along with one funeral at a time) the conrail managers. Then after they
had their pawns in place they started bringing in rejects from the NS
that believed in the Nazi Southern way of railroading. That's when the
whipping and beatings really started rolling out. Tony Ingram and Dave
Brown were two of the worst arrogant rejects the NS had and CSX took
them in with open arms. Years of failures and stalking took place and
mandatory failures were a must or managers were threatened to find
employment elsewhere. Many supervisors spilled their guts as they
walked out the door. Tom cook was another one who would wage bets on
who could get the most failures in a week and the who ever lost had to
buy him a steak dinner. Talk about a piece of ,,,,!  It wasn't until
the crews grew balls and laid down or as HH says pushed back that the
Unions finally got involved because they were told to do something
about their members or else. We all know what else was. $$$$$$$$! 
After Ingram was out things got a little better for everyone and moral
picked up for a while. 
Now we have a new King taking over CSX and this one has a history of
being just like the old Nazi Southern regime. However I hate to say
this but its going to be worse for everyone. The old head reps who were
around when everything went down around 2000-2002 are gone. The new reps
have no experience and haven't seen any of this crap yet. Your old reps
in the International are old aged men ready to retire and don't care
and you don't have enough young blood. You need to clean house and
start fresh with younger more gun-ho go getters. Your going to find out
just how good your guys are that you have now. You better pray they will
stand up to their unions and do what's right for you!  Good sign that
things are getting ready for a change is the move they made at avon.
Took the managers out of the Multi million dollar new building 5 and
put them in an old asbestos lead paint ridden hump building that smells
like dead rats all the time. Now why the hell would you do that. Why
would you leave the crews in a brand new building all by themselves and
put management on the other side of the yard? Because mark my word HH is
going to bring in his hit squad and fill those new offices with them.
The CSX managers are going to see how Karma works HH insist on weeding
out csx managers and replaces them with CN and CP recruits he has had
under his thumbs for years.  $$$$$$$$!  Cant beat the brides and
promises. So the crews at avon better get ready for the military camp
to form. Its coming. Better have the battle boots spit polished and
ready to go!

Have to read, review Contractual Agreements.  
The ol' B&O Agreement:
Lunch, General Rules \ Road - Rule #58.  Yard = Article 13.  

There are allowances for missing meal periods - albeit not much $$.

Been pretty much an accepted practice for very many years to leave a
lodging facility before on duty time to allow time for transport, stop
enroute for food, etc. - so as to show up at an on-duty point at
on-duty time.   Yeah, sometimes circumstances can/may differ. 

Getting ready for work, regardless of what all, is supposed to be done
before on duty time.  
No one wants to go back to the old ways = staying at a dorm with a 24
hr. greasy spoon restaurant and just one hour notification for work.  


Like it or not, some have taken advantage and ruined things for others.

ALL CREWS


AS stated before, it is a serious violation for managers to go out into
the fields and do the union employees work. It has been posted on here.
If you find any manager doing the work of union contract employees you
need to contact as many furloughed employees that you can and tell them
to start calling the hell out of the international and let their
neighbors and anyone in the media they can know that they are on the
street while CSX allows their managers to do their work and violating
the hell out of the union agreements. Take pictures of managers
working. Take notes. Dates and times and what job the managers are
doing. It doesn't matter if they throw a switch. Make sure the FRA
knows that managers are running engines. They have to turn this into
the FRA as hours of service. They cant work and have to be rested just
like everyone else.  Cant believe that HH would let them run and then
be off 10 hours. Bet your butt they are right back at work as soon as
they get off the power.  Do what is right and report these violations.
Report all OSHA violations. HH wants to cut the throats of hard working
people they better be shooting back while they are going down.  This war
is just starting. The Unions will not step in to save the day until all
members have started a major media stink.   THIS IS A FACT PEOPLE.
Anyone who was around in 2006 remembers what happened that year. The
worst attack of observation testing and failures in the history of CSX.
It started with the southern regions 2006 safety plan that was set up to
train managers on how to stalk selected employees. The Great Lakes
division got the ball rolling with their 2006 safety action plan.
 "All new hire employees will be mentored with a Great Lakes manager.
The use of contract mentors will be limited and used only where
absolutely needed. There has been great value realized from
indoctrinating new employees with CSX values and safety culture as
opposed to UTU VALVES"!

WOW!  Did they really thing that was going to fly. Have you got to be
kidding. Now that was a slap that no one in the Union was going to
take. Then there was the organizing campaign that took place. Everyone
should remember the bumper sticker that came out. "The Nations
railroads they use us-then abuse us!" It wasn't until employees were
threatened that the union stepped up and came to the rescue. If you had
a sticker on your car you were told you couldn't park on the property.
The UTU reps had one locked in their union boards and were told to
remove them or people would be pulled out of service. Nasty arguments
and threats started between management and the reps. After the fire
really started burning because the members and a few VLC and assistants
started making suggestions that the media and people in Washington D.C.
were going to get involved, the Union decided to fire off a letter to
the division managers demanding that the harassment of Union employees
cease or charges would be filed for violating their right to organize
and their rights to freedom of speech. It wasn't until the members
started the entire blow out that the Union officials stepped in and did
what they had to do because they were under the gun. Local business were
aware of what was going on and were asking questions. Local news
stations were aware.  
So if you want to get something done then you have to stand together
and use the media to get things started. Put your unions on front
street and make them do what is right when the time comes. Believe me
when I say the time is coming. This is going to be a repeat of history
and hopefully the new hires today will have the backbone that their
fathers and grandfathers and fellow employees had that were and still
are hard working union members. Don't work through lunches. Don't run
like a dog. Don't stand there and be threatened with insubordination
when it is not warranted. Do not let a manager tell you he doesn't
care if what he is ordering you to do is a violation of your union
agreement when you point this out to him. This is a hostile manager and
is anti Union and he should be reported immediately to your LC and the
General Chairman's office. When you are entitled to extra pay per your
union agreements and managers promise you an extra ticket and they
don't come through, report the incident . This is an ethics
violations. They have lied to you. Told you what you wanted to hear.
Report the incident.  Your Local reps are swamped. They have their
hands full now. They always have. Fax your complaint forms and letter
to the General chairman's office. Demand action. You have the rights
to be heard. You are paying for representation to the fullest extent by
your unions. Your dues are paying for a service agreement. You have
every right to demand that service. Listen and learn from older
employees who have been through it. 2006 was the year of the Union
employees and their voice was heard. Proof that you can do something!

So Mr. Harrison, As it is my opinion that your big ego has you
monitoring this site from time to time, and YES even replying once in a
while. I have some questions for you?

1. As I have noticed that you like to play the big hero that will take
on all those BIG LAZY T&E GUYS that are making it so hard for the
railroads to make a profit.  
What then? When you come into a terminal and all the guys are just
ordinary hardworking guys, trying to provide for their families. And
they are not trying to resist your Precision Railroading Masterplan? 
As it is my experience that most of the guys ARE hardworking and are
not looking for a fight as you so often try to portray us as. Why do
you still bully everyone around?

Believe it or not many of your changes have been applauded by the rank
and file. The firing of wave after wave of useless managers, that knew
nothing about railroading, whom only skills were to fire 
every railroad worker that they could, for bullshit rule violations. We
loved that! Getting rid of cumbersome rules that truly DID NOT make
anthing safer. Just appeared to make things safe. Good Job Mr.
Harrison!

2. So then if you are truly dedicated to making this a better more
profitable company. Why all the hostility towards the workers? Common
sense and logic says that a business whose workers are against it is
doomed to fail
 or at best, have marginal success.  Most of us are stock holders as
well, and have every interest in seeing this company succeed. Surely a
man who rose up through the ranks should have some sympathy for the
worker bees themselves. Furthermore just look at what happened after
you left CP Rail. Keith Creel put out an olive branch out to to the
rank and file, and asked them to work with him. Can't we just all get
along? 

3. How are we supposed to support you and your endeavours when we hear
from our counterparts on your former railroads, that you disrespected
their contracts, broke labor laws, disregarded safety, treated
customers poorly, fired employees who merely questioned those things
which they had been taught to question their whole lives. If you have
an employee who wants the best for this company, and they question that
which seems absurd or counterproductive why are you so quick to cast
them off? Or do you just want mindless drones that will never question
a bad idea?

I would like to think that you learned lessons from your previous
endeavors, and that you are going to do better this time. But the
current state of affairs seems to suggest that you just want chaos and
disorder. And that you really don't seem to have any real action plan,
that is different from anything that we have seen before. Not to be
overly critical, but we employees would like to do our jobs to the best
of our abilities without having come to work feeling threatened every
day. Is it so hard to treat us decently. Being chased out to our yard
jobs within the first 5 minutes of work, not even giving us a
reasonable amount of time to eat our lunchs in peace? I've seen
minimum wage warehouse workers treated better than this. We are human
beings Mr. Harrison! Not to mention we ARE NOT valueless employees that
can be shrugged off like an old food wrapper. A basic trainmans training
is over $30,000.00. For an Engineer it's more like $100.000.00. It's
literally like training a Doctor or Lawyer and then firing them just as
fast as you can.

Mr. Harrison, I urge you to rethink your attitudes toward the
hardworking men and women of CSX. We would like to be part of a team
with common goals! Not the enemy you erroneously think we are.

No one should expect the media, government agencies, politicians, the
populace, to be on your side - UNLESS catastrophic accident(s) occur --
and if/when that should happen then there'll be even more regulations
and rules for workers to adhere to.
  
This is year 2017 and many people think RR employees already have good
pay & benefits.  Doesn't matter if all the work circumstances and
conditions are known by some. 

Yes - you can claim contract violations - depending on the particular
situation, and yeah, you'll wait for retribution. 

Lead a wildcat strike?  Do so without much support, if any, and hide
from federal marshals.   

Things will get better. Harrison will fail.

Retired CP

I don't know what kind of union contracts you had but if managers/non
union contract employees cross the line and come out into the field to
work there WILL BE HELL TO PAY!  It is a serious violation for any non
contract employee to take the work from a union contract employee. 
This claim goes straight to the international and is awarded 5 days pay
for each violation.  The union brothers in the United states have stood
this ground for over 50 years and you can bet your sweet ass it isn't
going to change. This is one issue the Unions have to stand up and do
what is right unless they want a battle in court from the union
members. This kind of action is so serious that it is protected by
federal law under Union rights in the United States. NO UNION can sit
back and do nothing and take the chance of this getting out in the
media. It would be a major blow and other Unions would agree 100%!
MANAGEMENT DOES NOT TAKE OUR WORK AWAY FROM US!  If one manager is seen
in the field doing any union brothers work I would hope they would have
the balls to do what is right for all union members and file a
complaint immediately.  I personally have done it and yes I was paid
along with my hogger. This can not and will not be tolerated. Look what
happened to the managers who did this in the 60's and 70's. There were
casualties and people were shot.  This isn't a joke.
This site is a great place to expose any manager who is seen out in the
field doing union contract work.  POST NAMES, DATES, AND TIMES. BE
HONEST!  Don't post crap because you are pissed at a manager. Be an
honest grown up adult. Don't be afraid to get it our there. If HH has
a history of this blatant violation of Union rights, then he needs to
learn it wont be tolerated by U.S. union members.  If we have to bring
the 60's back then so be it.  Like he said in his interview. Cultures
are changed one funeral at a time. If he is a non believer in our
rights then time to start reminding him. He is 72 year old and was
around when the Union strikes we at full force in this country. He
knows the power we have if we stick together. Get our butts in gear and
be men. Do what is right and stand up. He cant fire us all!

RAILROAD SAVIORS POST

If you haven't read the interview that Fortune magazine did with
Harrison I suggest you do.  A link was provided on this site for you to
view it. 

The article is very lengthy but there are numerous messages through out
it that send very strong and disturbing messages. 

Most arrogant messages: "I know how to run a railroad. I wrote the
handbook! I ain't leavin a failure."

Most disturbing message: "Cultures change one FUNERAL at a time." 
Then he emphasizes the importance of detoxing the culture by WEEDING
OUT the non believers. 
This comment is almost understandable after reading that his father was
a traveling preacher after he retired. Not hard to figure out where this
mentality comes from. Reverend Harrison had spoken and is telling you he
will rid his house of the non believers.  

Harrison mentions several times his plans to making csx great and
making the investors and stockholder rich.  He talks of reductions in
Locomotives, cars, switching equipment , etc, etc, etc. but not once
did he have the backbone to say he would reduce the workforce and put
people out of work. He mentions disruption to customers and some
casualties to their service but nothing as to the amount of people he
would be putting on the street. When he was asked how he felt about the
comments that people were saying that CSX is a spaghetti network and his
plan would not work as it did with his other railroads his comment was.
"I'll eat the spaghetti!"

READ THE INTERVIEW. FORGET ALL THE CRAP YOU HEAR! You want to see where
this mans mind is at read it.  We are dealing with a lot of issues here.
All I can say is good luck to management. They are going to need it!
Reverend Harrison has spoken!

CSX Corporation (Nasdaq:CSX) will participate in a public proceeding
with the Surface Transportation Board to update the federal agency on
steps it is taking to correct service problems. Rail shippers and other
stakeholders will also get a chance to inform the agency about the
effects of service problems they have experienced with CSX.

The proceeding will take place on Sept. 12 at 9:30 a.m. at the STB's
office in Washington, D.C.

 It might be a decent idea to try and get as many of us to this meeting
as possible. If it is made clear that Hunter Harrison has enabled this
unsafe culture at CSX he might be removed faster.  At the very least it
would be terrible PR for them as all the comments would be public
record.  

 I don't know how many boys we got up in Washington but every little

Brilliant

YOU COULDNT BE MORE WRONG!  I guess you never got to read the training
manual that came out for the southern region managers during Michael
Wards reign. The class room training was set up to teach the managers
how to pick out their problem employees and how to set up a
communication network with other divisions to let them know when their
targets where in the area so they could be ready for their arrival and
be ready to targeted. When it fell into the hands of subordinates
outside of the classrooms it was brought to Michael Wards attention and
of course he denied he knew anything about it. Did his blow hard apology
and the stalking training was ordered to cease.

Memos were circulated within the departments. I'm guessing this memo
that is out is one that is set up the same way. Just like the internal
memo that was sent to all managers at the beginning of the new CEO's
reign that made it very clear if they took a sick day they better be in
the emergency room. If they weren't they could look for a job somewhere
else. Only comment for that action is "WOW!"

If southend has seen this memo or knows who has then all parties better
be getting on the phones to their Union International offices and start
putting the word out. Blatant stalking and harassment of employee's
just to get failures is not just a violation of the ethics policy but
it is against the law. This happened several years ago when CSX was
screaming down the throats of field managers to up the failure rates. A
form was provided by the unions for the members to fill out and submit
when they were given excessive failures and felt they were being
followed/stalked on a regular basis. It might be time to recirculate
this old form.

PEOPLE...Our industry is federally regulated but it IS NOT Federally
owned and operated. CSX must follow all state and federal laws as well
as your union agreements.  Any time you are assessed any discipline for
failures this goes into your employee history and impacts your
employment with the company. Unjust and unwarranted failures and
discipline is not a laughing matter. Stalking an employee is AGAINST
THE LAW. 
 
READ YOUR NEW IDPAP POLICY. SYSTEM NOTICE 103 Dated July 7th,  2017

PAGE 2 LAST PARAGRAPH READS: MANAGERS WILL RETAIN THE DISCRETION TO
HANDLE APPROPRIATE NON-CRITICAL MATTERS THROUGH INFORMAL COACHING! 

What does this mean?  What is APPROPRIATE non critical?  Who gets to
decide if an incident is minor and doesn't warrant anything other than
a coaching? These are questions you should be asking your Union
representative and getting answers to NOW!  Have they provided you with
a list of what they feel is minor. Not having a side shield because you
lost one while working does not warrant a failure.  Not having your
lantern on while its still bright enough to walk but close enough to
listed times does not warrant a failure. Coaching is the only action
warranted and only if the employee had reasonable time to correct the
situation.
In partII/Major offenses there is a very disturbing action listed that
leaves the door wide open for interpretation. Example 14-significant
loss or damage to equipment or property. Is this monetary amount the
same as the FRA guidelines for damage during accidents or is this an
amount the company wants to pull out of their hat. There are many
unanswered questions to this policy that your union representation
needs to address. 
Get with your reps and start getting list and answers . If you sit on
your butts and do nothing then you will have a long fight to clean up
your employee records when you get picked as a target and little minor
things are considered violations that should have called for coaching.

DONT BE NAIVE! The extreme stalking and failure rates have always been
part of the company plan. They took a stand down when the heat just got
too hot and the cost of investigations began to sky rocket. Questions
were starting to pile up as to why so many csx employees were unable to
follow the rules and why was it happening. Was their training plan a
failure? Were the managers to blame?
Now they have a new sheriff in town and it is real easy to blame all
the sudden changes on him. Not all the changes are because of the new
CEO. This is an opportunity to bring out policy changes they always
wanted to but couldn't because they ran out of people to pin it on.  
GET WITH YOUR UNION REPS!

TO FURTHER ENHANCE AND LEVERAGE DISCIPLINE FOR OPERATIONAL PERFORMANCE
AND SAFETY:

MANAGERS ARE NOT TO BE IN THE TOWERS OR SITTING DOWN ANYWHERE, THEY
WILL BE OUTSIDE OPERATIONAL TESTING EMPLOYEES ON A CONSTANT BASIS. 
EVERY EMPLOYEE MUST HAVE A TEST FAILURE BY THE END OF SEPTEMBER. 

IF AN EMPLOYEE IN YOUR AREA OF RESPONSIBILTY DOES NOT HAVE A FAILURE BY
THEN, THEY WILL MEET WITH THEIR SUPERINTENDENT. WHO WILL COACH THEM, AND
PUT MANAGER ON PROBATION FOR 60 DAYS.  AFTER THIS 60 DAYS IF ALL
EMPLOYEES UNDER A MANAGER'S RESPONSIBILITY DO NOT HAVE A FAILURE, THE

Many unfounded and grossly exaggerated statements have been going
around.   They seem to place the blame of CSX's downfall directly on
me.    I only accept praises when CSX is doing well.   When the company
is doing great that's because of me and only me.   The company is
really sucking ass now. It all falls on T&E they don't want to play
nice.  They're making fun of my precision rr and even lower level
managers are making fun of my oxygen tank.  That's not being nice.  I
only use it every once in while and when I visit the gay brothels.  I
came up with new metrics with the help of my horse Mr.Ed  that will
show everyone that PRR model can't fail.  PRR is more than making
three wittle trains into one really big one,leaving cars for weeks at a
time in between point,trashing chairs, no nap times for you sorry sobs, 
 shutting proven hump yards down, Ripping up tracks, selling off
property,making trainmasters suck my ding aling, making
tMastes play cab driver,laying off managers, laying off maintenance
men, firing off T&E with insubordination for any reason, moving
dispatchers back to Jaxville, placing the blame other than where it
belongs, and you sorry fuckers will water those foreign line locos
I've been paying my idiot brother in law to rent.   PRR is much much
more than this.

told csx to kiss their ass, pulled their intermodal trailers and has
went to truckers and others who can run their freight to its
destination without the bs of precision railroading.fed ex probably
pulled their business too and many other shippers whose loads are time
sensitive, yesterday now, new york minute, etc.
    we all figuired that would happen. hh will keep on, csx will lose
more business including the intermodals. these guys can't afford to
wait on csx to pull the finger out of their ass. time is money to them.
we all know ups and fedex are very time sensitive businesses. they
handle most everything that comes to small businesses to large
industries.example would be a time sensitive shipment of a computer
part or a plc unit badly needed to resume a plant's operation, down,
money lost, people sent home for lack of work waiting on that crucial
part or plc to resume production. hh precision railroading problems
screw these folks.this even affects ebay and amazon shipments by
ups/fedex, smart post,etc and your ground shipment package your looking
for is delayed. they are not going to tolerate delays.the small business
is screwed when their ups shipments of merchandise is delayed.
   the clincher will be a military shipment , time sensitive, doesn't
arrive on time due to csx bs. the feds will be in this wanting a chunk
of somebodies ass for the delay namely hunter harrison.the lost
business may not come back to csx ever. csx will fold like a sorry
poker hand. maybe the bastard harrison will be happy then unless he is
in dirt nap mode at that time. its not the fault of the t&e folks but
the sorry management above you.

Thanks to CSX right now I am running UPS trailers between Chicago and
Boston for enough money that well I am thinking about a new truck by
the end of the freaking year it will be a glider kit since I do not run
CA anyway.  UPS hired about 100 Owner Ops over Teamster objections and
we are independent contractors for them via their UPS Freight division
is how they did it.  However all I have been pulling for the last month
running team is UPS Big Brown boxes from their Willow Springs facility
to Boston or other points in the NE as fast and myself and my teammate
and our HOS will freaking allow it.  UPS is paying for all tolls we get
meaning IN OH NY MA PA hell anywhere the state charges to use the roads
over the fuel tax they are paying for it.  Why they terminated all UPS
contracts with CSX and now need to move all their own stuff so they are
short.  So drivers that can move them fast aka teams are raking in the
money for a while.  Thank you EHH for screwing up one of the best
business deals in the history of Railroading by running UPS off the
railroad on the East Coast.  Now to grab my next load East and haul
butt back to Beantown.  We both needed a reset on hours 70 hours in 6 
days killed our log books so we took 2 days off at home.  However that
almost 30 large in the bank this week will look nice on the books.

Well, the major shareholders wanted a change and the Board Of Directors
supported it.  The ol' CSX that was loved/hated is probably gone. 

Hasn't been that long yet since headhunter took over. 
We'll see - time will tell. 

If thinking government agencies will be of much help regarding all the

on the little guy employee but usually kiss big business butt.

Good luck to all.

Everyone knows that Precision RR is a sham.  Evelyn can blame anyone or
everyone.  The blame rest on Evelyn's shoulders and all his yes men.  

The last few days I worked.  I've heard tm, ym and dispatchers all
making fun of this madman's insanity.  Where I'm from we now stage
autoracks for weeks at a time before they're picked up.  One train
sets off blocking the main and siding and about a week or so later
another train blocks the main and siding to pick up.  There are over a
100 racks sitting in an interchange. About 100miles from where they're
original picked up. 
That's all for now I have to take a precision shit.

BRAIN DEAD T&E


When are you going to wake up and GET IT!  If I see one more post about
HH and his greed agenda I'm going to puke!  Wake the hell up and use
your heads.   This IS NOT ABOUT MONEY!  This guy has more money than he
knows what to do with.  This is about power. This is about EGO! This is
about doing one last stand before he dies or retires. Which ever come
first doesn't matter.  He is going to be buried with a tomb stone that
says....."Here lays the greatest CEO in the world!" The only CEO who
could turn several dying railroads around and make them profitable for
everyone! A man who came in and took charge of a large class 1 railroad
and made it great!  Showed everyone how smart he was and showed everyone
they were wrong and he was right.  THE KING OF THE RAILROAD. HIS NAME IN
THE HISTORY BOOKS. I MADE CSX THE GREATEST!

What it wont say is he was a 72 year old man dragging around an oxygen
tank and popping blood clot and blood pressure medicine and sadly
grasping at his last attempt of fame and glory. A man who wasted his
last years alive on this earth trying to show everyone how wrong they
were and went to his grave doing it.

You cant compete with that kind of crazy old man conviction. You can
only make it more complicated for him by standing your ground and
filing complaints every time he breaks federal laws and violates your
agreements. Violations of OSHA. Violations of the EEOC. Safety
standards set by the USDOT.  Take pictures. Tape record if necessary.
Circulate copies to outside parties any memo that orders unsafe work
practices. This man wants to win his crown dead or alive.  That my
friends makes him very unstable and unpredictable. Hope your Local
chairman are getting their butts in gear. Their jobs are under attack
as well.

A few months ago they sent one of our trainmasters to Avon, then we got
a guy from connelsville. Then our train master of 5 years quit and
bought a coffee shop about 3 weeks ago, so he's gone. Then the guy
from connelsville slipped and fell last week, he got hurt and is gone,
then the guy that they replaced him with, a former trainmaster of ours,
had a stroke 2 days ago. He's gone. Then they sent a guy from Ashtabula
yesterday morning.. he's out of service already for chest pains. He's
gone. Not sure who the next one is or is going to be. I'm sure the
railroad will be running smooth any day now. These are just bumps in

sitting in yards for 10 days, we tie trains down because you're out of
people everywhere while you continue to cut our pools and eliminate our
jobs. Eliminated utility employees system wide, but you'll want the
same work out of us without them, even though it was already not enough
with them there. Don't work more than 8 hours though... It's not going
to work, you're going down in flames. Thanks for fucking us, our

For those worried about losing their job.... I lost mine, after many,
many f--king years at that damn railroad, I'm gone. All those worried
about what to do, if it happens to you, well here you go: States,
counties, cities, and industries serviced by CSX know what he's doing.
They feel for you, on many levels. If you do loose you're job, you will
have about five job offers in a week or two, I did. In the interview,
explain what happened. Believe me, many will already have knowledge of
what's going on. With jaws dropped, they can't believe what this
greedy bastard is doing, the job offer follows shortly there after.
Here's why, the employer knows that if you put up with CSX, and Hunter
Harrison, you can handle anything. So no worries about you're family
starving, mine is better off. Some day in the near future, you will
probably have the opportunity to return to the railroad, if you choose.
Cause no RR can run like this, mass hiring will take place, and you have
the experience. So worry not, Hunter will be gone or dead, in hell, soon
enough! Take care guys! Good luck! I do miss the guys at CSX, they were
good people, but I don't miss the railroad!!!

i read the posts you csx folks post everyday.although i am a member of
the general public,i can understand what y'all are going thru these
days with that sob, hunter harrison at the wheel and his asinine ways
such as "precision railroading"and ass kissers who probably hope to
suck his dick one day.(turn up the oxygen,johnny i'm gonna come now)
what a load of bs.he's got you folks job scared to the point of"not
knowing whether to shit or blind".he and your supervisiors making up
rule changes on the fly and y'all get nailed for petty bs as a
result.(i don't blame the immediate supervisors as much as the upper
level of the food chain as they are stuck in the middle pressured and
threatened with being fired constantly to follow orders from above.they
have usually worked your job in years past and know how you feel stuck
in a shitty situation.) i've never worked the railroad but have
friends who has.i attended the 1 day orientation for new applicants
with southern railway in 1976( norfolk southern predecessor) and the no
schedule/call in, 90 min notice and living and dying by the phone,
leaving a trail of call back numbers,pre pager and cell phone days and
seeing the railroad as a god not to be defied did not appeal to me.i
found employment in a chemical plant that paid good like the railroad
without the bs.
    i read the post from"radio"dated today 17 aug 2017 about
hendricks county, indiana ref csx former customers willing to hire
furloughed csx folks. it is admirable in the sense that they are not
blaming the rank and file employees for their csx shipping troubles but
the management including that cocksucker and oxygen gulping
bastard,hunter harrison.i don't even work for csx but just looking at
his damn picture pisses me off.i'd buck up on him too.
    i would recommend y'all check out the jobs and take them. probably
a lot less stress and you can get your rest with a predictable
schedule.if you can survive csx,you can get thru anything else in this
life and add years to your life. your families would like having you
home more.if your close to retirement, i would say try to ride it out
and get your retirement benefit. since coal is going down, the railroad
industry will continue to cut jobs and not recall low seniority
folks.hunter harrison will continue to ass rape csx,lose most customers
until csx folds like a sorry poker hand. you have to provide for your
families and be prepared to do the same.i would sell off your csx stock
if you have any and bank the money for a rainy day.

To furloughed Employees

Today it was announced by radio that Hendricks County (Indiana) has
stepped up to help out the employees of CSX that have lost work at the
Avon rail yard.  They have a website you can go to that list jobs
available in Hendricks County.. The county announcement also stated
that several customers that CSX services are offering job positions to
the CSX employees who lost their jobs. 

It is admirable that customers are offering employment to people who
have not been able to serve them and have not been able to give them
any explanations as to why they haven't. 

It was also stated that CSX would not give any information as to the
future operating plans for the Avon rail yard. 

Now is the time to take advantage of these offers. Don't let them pass
you by. Hendricks county is willing to help those who have lost work.
Maybe more counties will step in after the announcement on the radio.

Young cubs and Hoggers!  

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce quote..  "U.S. supply chains are
critically dependent on the quality and capacity of the American
freight transportation network. We are anticipating 100 million new
people in the country and 4 billion more tons of international freight
to move around America by 2050. The railroads are one of the most
heavily used transit system in the world."
And you cant understand why you cant strike...really?

Now lets get to the point. Your harassment and intimidation didn't
really get rolled out until the company realized that they had a golden
opportunity. The old heads were getting close to retirement and the talk
of the 30 and 60 and you were up for retirement was in the works.
That's when they began to hire again. They were anticipating serious
man power shortage if they didn't get people trained and in place. So
how were they going to handle the large turn over and the incoming of
so many new cubs? First train them and then bull whip and intimidate
them to death and make them scared to death to stand up for themselves.
CASTRATE ALL OF THEM! How many of you young pups remember your trainers
telling you not to listen to any of the old heads. They are just
disgruntled and will only get you in trouble. Tons of heard it!  Why?
Because we had balls. We wouldn't tolerate management violating the
hell out of our union agreements. We wouldnt take having our pay stolen
that was rightfully ours. we wouldn't take a beating and just stand
there like little boys with our pants wet. Moving freight in a timely
manner is a must! No if's and's or but's!  When they got abusive we
did what we had to in order to get the attention of Headquarter
officials. They wanted 400 cars switched a night they got 200. It
didn't take long for the white collars to show up and want to talk to
us and find out what was going on. The problems were fixed with a
temporary bandaid for awhile but at least they were fixed. If we had to
do it again, then we did. 
Management is well aware of the power that you have. This industry
demands that freight move and keep moving quickly. A stoppage would be
detrimental.
So now comes your observation testing. Some of you may remember when it
was called "Performance evaluations" instead. For some legal reason
they had to change it. This was a great way to scare the hell out of
the new pups and send the fear that there will be eyes on you all the
time and maybe in the bushes as well. Old heads didn't give a shit.
Any of you remember an old head that could turn a 6 hour job into a 12
and they couldnt find a damn thing to charge them on? EXPERIENCE! You
screw with our agreement and our pay and we will remind you just how
much power we really have. You pay us right and treat us with respect
we will switch the shit our of your yard and give you 500 on a great
day! This isn't MacDonalds boys! This is a serious business that
demands movement of freight.
If a manager ever walked up to us and told us "I don't care if Im
violating your agreement. File a claim and take it up with your union
rep. Now get out there and do as your told or you will be charged with
insubordination he would have been one sorry supervisor. He could
explain it to the white collars when they flew into town! 
Some of you young pups probably don't come from a union family and
have no idea how hard blue collar workers have fought to get them.
Yeah, they aren't worth a shit half the time anymore but it doesn't
matter.  You got more power than you can ever imagine. Grow a set of
balls and stick together. MAN UP and stand up. We did it. When your
right, your right. Don't work 8 damn hours straight without a lunch.
This no lunch shit is for the birds.  How did you ever let management
brow beat you into going all day with out a lunch break when your
agreement allows it. I don't know of any industry that refuses to let
someone take a damn break during the day. I have been hearing a lot of
crap that's been going down and I just cant believe it. I'm floored
on how you pups have let this get out of hand. Run your ass into the
ground, spy on you all day, take your lunch, steal your pay, and
threaten you?  Use your heads!

For those of us that work into and out of Chicago we know the CT crews
are some of three laziest around.

 EUGENE finally found out how little the crews do up there and has
started charging them with insubordination stealing time. Charge 10 of
them last week , so in retaliation they started to lay down  and he
said fine I'm shutting the whole thing down, sending all traffic he
can To BRC Clearing, IHB Blue Island, and CN Kirk (via the new Cline
Ave connection at MP DC 1). 

The Danville, Garrett and Grand Rapids crews will take their trains to
these yards vs. BARR.  Only a skeleton crew will be left at Barr to
switch local customers. In case you're wondering, CSX technology has
provided him and HQ with a tool that uses GPS off every yard locomotive
to provide a report on when locomotives start moving vs. Going on duty,
where it went during shift, switchlists issued and when locomotive
stopped moving vs. When crew finally tied up.  Kinda easy to see crew
on duty at 0700, locomotive parked next to yard office shut down, and
doesn't start moving till 0900. Then see loco parked at 0230 but crew
marks off at 1700, like click work....every day.  They think no one
sees, but they do.  If it's going on where you work it's only a
matter of time, we next change our ways, or the ax and charge letters
will flow...

Just a heads up. Barr yard in chicago is likely to be shuttered very
soon. More than 60 men were cut off this week alone. That number is
about to go up again. Barr yard is responsible for a full 25% of ALL of
csx income. Thats right...do your research. Barr keeps the lights on.
Barr is the only terminal consistently running in he black. And hes
closing it. What do you think is going to operating ratio? Way up
 Know what that means? Deeper job cuts. 15 years of seniority is no
longer a safety net. This monster at the helm hates you, and this
company. He never came here with any intention to improve anything.  He
is here to dsmantle it. Want to know why? Because CSX told him no. This
is a temper tantrum. Pure and simple.

Since the inauguration of my Presidency, and the enforcement of my

has increased by at least 20%!

You all should be patient and expect higher wages in the future and
expect more of a conciliatory tone from management due to a tight

I have to commend you on your lengthy but true post. You hit the nail
on the head on how the real dedicated workers feel. I hate to say this
to you but unfortunately you wasted the skin off your fingers and your
valuable time doing it.

People,  WAKE UP!    You are not getting it!

This is a 70 something year old man who is popping blood clot medicine
pills like they are M&M's.  He can not breath on his own like a
healthy person should and he knows his time is limited on the good
green earth. He has been awarded a title of one of the best CEO's in
railroading and is convinced he is the king of railroading. His ego is
the only thing that drives him and keeps him alive today. 
He has one last goal before he dies and that is to bring back CSX like
no one has ever done in the past and put one more stone in his crown. 
It doesn't matter how much you dog, trash, curse or threaten this man,
he will do what he says he will do no matter how much death and
distruction he leaves behind.  He has a certain message he want on his
tombstone and that is one that says." I the great and powerful CEO of
CSX turned it around and went to my grave showing all your asses!"  
He is not reasonable. He is ill and he knows it. Ask any doctor. They
will tell you the damage that is done when the brain is constantly
deprived of oxygen. Any person who has sleep apnea will tell you the
damage it does to your heart and organs.  He will not go down without a
fight and his last breath.  If he has a stroke he will be declared
unable and unfit to continue his position and his right hand man will
take over. In the meantime he has a final stand to make and by god he
will make it. 
Remember, this is his last and final mark on this earth and he will not
go down with out a fight. Now stop thinking of this man as a man who is
just a jerk or a...hole.  He is worse. He is a man making his last
stand on this earth and that my good people is worse than a rabid dog
pushed in the corner! You have no idea what you are dealing with. Its
higher than you and will take the support of all your union heads along
with all federal agencies to bring some sense to all of this. In the
meantime do not give up hope. No one lives forever.

Railroad workers at CSX face the dictates of Wall Street

CSX railroad workers denounce Wall Street plundering
https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2017/08/01/rail-a01.html

Mr Harrison,
 You personally dont know me, and I personally dont know you, but your
comment of personnel "push back" has struck me in the wrong manner.
I, as a dedicated 8 year employee and 4th generation railroader, take
that very personal. I have held many jobs within CSX ranks over the
last 8 years, including Conductor,Swithchman(RCO), Yardmaster, Retarder
Operator, and Locomotive Engineer. I come to work at
night,holidays,weekends,in the snow,ice,thunderstorms,you name it Im
still there. When you 1st became CEO things looked very very promising.
We went to 2 man hump jobs, Engineer Foreman/Brakeman bowl jobs. My
terminal was absolutely moving the freight. My terminal alone was
processing,( thats arriving,inspecting,humping,classifying,and
departing) anywhere from 2000-2200 cars in a 24 hour period. Thats 2nd
to none on your system. We would rival your "premier" hump number
wise on a daily basis. After time though you all fired all our
managers, cut jobs, piled the freight in,( 1000 cars every 8 hours),
and expected us to move it with half the manpower. After it was all
said and done, we were told we were failures and we would be shut off.
The upper management has done this with every hump you have closed thus
far. Its not only unfair, but makes those of us who actually have pride
as railroaders, well lets just say its a ding in the old paint. Also
our new management that most have came from the CN are more like mob
bosses, than leaders. Men are constantly threatened with their jobs on
the line, we are told to switch cars like back in the 50's when
injury/fatality rates were high, and its just a matter of time before
we have a headline injury or fatality. Men are getting cussed up one
side and down the other, and shown no absolute professionalism in the
least little way. Even with that aside, Ill give you and whomever else
that reads this a little insight as to why their are service
disruptions on csx. Ill just go over some speaking points from quotes
you have put out.
“Together, we will implement precision scheduled railroading — a model
proven to improve safety, create better service for customers, produce
a proud and winning culture for employees, and generate exceptional,
lasting value for shareholders,”
This is the farthest from the truth. Your increase in pace, to try to
compensate the flat switching instead of humping, is going to end with
injury and possibly someones life. Its already proven this is not,and
will not work as far customer service. Morale is at an all time low.
Our stock, well, ya know how thats going.
 The prevailing view in the rail industry is that more locomotives,
more cars and more crews allow for the movement of more volume.
Precision railroading challenges this view,”
You have stored alot of locomotives. Took away alot of switch engines
as well. Where Im from we are not "flat landers" if you will. If and
when we get to the customer, we now run the risk of not being able to
service them due to not having enough power to do the work at hand.
Also almost every one of your road trains has foreign power on them.
What your making up in storing locomotives, your paying right back out
in horsepower hours to another railroad. Crew availability system wide
is an absolute joke. You have intermodal trains sitting for days at a
time, due to either conjestion, or crew availability. You have cut
extraboards, and regular jobs to below minimum standards. Also you have
cut off the pushers system wide. Im gonna tell ya a little secret you
may or may not know though. One of my former territories has had a
pusher district for over 160 years, its the steepest mainline grade,as
side from saluda, east of the mississippi. You cut the assignments off,
but they are calling extra jobs off of the freight pools,and extraboards
there to push trains, every 12 hours. They are just advertised as extra
turn jobs, and not pushers. Trust me though they are still there. Every
terminal you have piled the freight on, has a back log of traffic
sitting in sidings, waiting to be switched. I have read your book and
alot does make sense but no two things are alike. CP was a majority
bulk hauler from their reports, as we are a major mixed manifest
hauler. We are not a place where blocks of cars can ride a 1000 miles
across the plains before it needs to be classified again. If your a
brain surgeon, and Im a spine surgeon, does that mean we can do open
heart surgery together? Im not undermining your CEO abilities, but from
where I and the rest of your workforce stands, its the upper management
that has this place in the turmoil that its in. I understand you did
not need 12 humps, but your cut and slash of 8 humps, 2 of them I know
being major players, is borderline absurd. The old saying of "
Attitude reflects leadership" comes to mind, and to be blunt your
"pushing the blame" off on your employees, just shows what style of
leader you are. Everyone in my terminal,and for the majority system
wide are doing all they can do,to try to make this happen, but its
going to fail because you are leading us this way. CSX was a very
profitable railroad, and I personally think if you could blend some of
CSX's old methods, with a blend of "Presicion Railroading" we as a
whole would be unstoppable. Either way it makes me no difference . If I
get told by my local "Capo" to go run an engine of the drawbridge
tomorrow while its open, well I will because Im a team player, always
have, and always will.
 Sincerly,
 Well I best not say.

I work on the OTR industry and my boss also is a RR customer for bulk
plastic resins that thankfully we get via the NS or BNSF.  As of last
night my boss had 2 teams doing nothing but running UPS trailers
between Boston and Chicago as fast as they can turn and burn the
suckers as even the Water level route was getting congested they have
been on that for a week.  Our customers in the south have been
screaming for whatever we can come up with for them in the way of raw
materials that CSX hauled for them.  JB Hunt Schiender Fed Ex are
screaming for anything that can move a trailer or container to get
their stuff moved anywhere CSX goes and are moving as much as they can
to NS.  90% of the drivers at my company are forgoing their first
weekend at home this year why our customers need serviced as CSX has
dropped the freaking ball and we have to pick up the slack.  Spot rates
aka the rates for a truck in major metro areas were CSX has melted down
are up as much as 70% for trucks to get the freight into and out of
those areas.  My hazmat boys are running out of hours from trying to
keep up with deliveries needed at water plants CSX was supposed to
serve with chlorine for water purification.

I hope the BOD at CSX or the STB comes to their senses and runs him out
soon.  The OTR industry can only pick up the slack on major shippers for
a while before our drivers wear out It takes 4 trucks to equal 1 boxcar
or tank car load.  We just don't have the carrying capacity we need
help and I am not sorry to say that.  My drivers are going to be worn
out in a month running flat out.  Yes even the OTR industry has a
breaking point and a meltdown of a Class 1 Railroad on the east coast
would be very close to what would bring us to it.

The company moving all the dispatchers back to Jax is going about as
smooth as everything ole HH is changing.  


I think they finally realized there are a lot more of us that aren't
moving down than they expected.  

Friday they contacted all 30 of the Huntington dispatchers that got
screwed over last year when they killed the division and asked if they
would be interested in coming back to dispatching.   Apparently each of
them in their own creative way told them NO.


Well the moves start on September 1st, although no one actually knows
who is supposed to show up that day because the company refuses to talk
to the union about it. 
So expect your dispatching to go downhill here soon.  You'll have a
bunch of people scrambling to be trained on desks  they've never
worked before.  And sometime soon they'll have to be a large influx of
brand new dispatchers hired and trained...  And we all know how much fun
that is

2021.
3extra pl days and mandatory 5-2 schedule.  100% availability each
quarter receive 25 shares, abolishment of caps with 1 sick day every
28, no personal business or union mark offs fri-mon unless there is an
investigation.   48.50/hr if we agree to run  one man trains. If and
when the carrier decides to.

If this is true it sucks! 27.30 per hour is less than we make now, 3%
increase per year doesn't keep up with inflation, insurance the same
for 4 years (gee thanks) 3 extra pl days per year wow a $600 value! 5-2
schedule take it or leave it I guess. $50 per share x 25 shares wow a
$1250 value every 3 months for the few that are available 100% Caps, I
can mark off 3 days in a row now then get my points back, once allowed
every 28 days what if I need to be sick for 3 days in a row? Who wants
personal business Tuesday Wednesday or Thursday? One man crews goodbye
railroad cause it ain't gonna work! 
P.S. 3% of $27.30 is 82 cents, wow what a raise. I guess I can use that

Mr. E. Hunter Harrison
President and Chief Executive Officer
CSX Transportation, Inc.
500 Water Street
Jacksonville, FL 32202

Dear Mr. Harrison,
The undersigned General Chairmen are deeply disturbed by comments you
made to CSX customers in a letter, widely distributed in the media,
pertaining to the “push back” and “resistance” of employees that you
allege are the root of service disruptions. Although your accusations
did not specify labor at the ballast level, the impression is that
contract labor is responsible for the service disruptions.

The Organization refuses to accept responsibility for service
disruptions that negatively affect the customers when we have no input
on operational changes. We receive minimal and, in most cases, no
communication from any department about the significant changes being
implemented almost daily. We have a proven track record in this
industry for promoting changes that benefit our members and the
company. The undersigned have repeatedly requested to be involved in
the “new plan”, but have been ignored. If you recall, our support and
advice was offered directly to you on the conference call held May 12,
2017. 

Our members, the ballast line employees, rightfully take your comments
as a personal attack on their professionalism. Your letter was a kick
to the gut and a severe blow to their morale. They have worked through
numerous operational challenges and changes to their work routines.
Despite harsh treatment, furloughs and repeated violations of their
collective bargaining agreements, it has not deterred the employees
from fulfilling their duties. If anything, our members are “pushing
forward” even though management is providing limited guidance and
resources.

As a reminder, our members are dedicated career employees and also
stockholders with a vested interest in the direction of the company. To
suggest contract employees would intentionally disrupt operations
misleads the general public and insults the integrity of our crafts.
This Organization will not allow our members to serve as an excuse for
management’s inability to communicate and execute your ‘precision
scheduled railroading’.

In the future, alleged issues related to the performance of labor
should be addressed with the undersigned General Chairmen.

People hate him because everywhere he's gone massive amount of job
reductions and property sell offs happen.

To put this in perspective - in the 5 years he was at CP over 6,000
people lost their jobs. The company now employs about 11,000 people, so
that's roughly 40% of his work force that was eliminated. Was some of
that work waste? Yes. But no company has 40% of their work force doing
nothing. Railroads also own a lot of land - they need it. Expansion is
necessary at some point and land is the one thing they don't make more
of. At CP he sold nearly all their idle holdings and then gave the
profits of those sales to the share holders. People from CN say he did
the same thing their and once he was gone the new management had one
hell of a time managing their business as he had more or less
bankrupted it, didn't hire properly, etc

As someone currently in the railroad I can shed some light on some
things. He puts massive bonuses on bosses finding ways to lay people
off. I can't list many other things he's done but the list would be
long. The short of it is he makes a lot of money for share holders
while annihilating his work force to do it. The rich love him and hail
him as the greatest railroader ever. The real railroader see what he
actual does and despise him

Thank you SMART

John Risch, a spokesman for the transportation division of the SMART
Union, which represents CSX operations employees, said "significant
delays" had been caused by Harrison's changes, such as doubling the
size of trains and shutting down hump yards where a freight train's
cars are separated onto different tracks.

"No one is more to blame for CSX's service disruptions than the man
who ordered the dramatic changes to operations and that's Hunter
Harrison," Risch said by email.

Edwenna is blaming the men again for his failures.

Time to blame crews and deal with them...

To our valued customer, 

Over the past four months, CSX has been undergoing a tremendous amount
of change, including an operational transformation that will ultimately
result in better service to our customers. We’re not at the finish line
yet, but I’m personally writing you today to reaffirm our commitment to
working with you individually to ensure you receive the support you
require to meet your business needs. 

I think we can agree that more-reliable service and improved asset
utilization is a win-win for your business and ours. It is with these
intentions that we have focused our efforts – moving our customer’s
freight consistently, reliably and cost efficiently. 

The pace of change at CSX has been extremely rapid, and while most
people at the company have embraced the new plan, unfortunately, a few
have pushed back and continue to do so. This resistance to change has
resulted in some service disruptions. To those customers that have
experienced such issues, we sincerely apologize. As we move forward, we
will continue to address these internal personnel matters and our teams
have recommitted themselves to reaching out to those affected to work
through any service issues and resolve them as quickly as possible. 

Throughout our transformation, one thing that has remained constant is
our dedication to our customers and the great effort we put forth to
deliver the service you expect from CSX. Our operating and sales and
marketing teams are collaborating closely to better ensure you are
prepared for and work through any planned changes that may occur. I
will remain engaged in overseeing our customer service and
communications efforts, and appreciate your partnership and willingness
to also remain engaged. 

We value your business and thank you for the opportunity to be your
transportation provider. 

Sincerely, 

Hunter

We have been paying union dues all this time and now when we need them
where in the hell are they? They have no problem taking our money where
is our help. Our union is worthless. Even before Harrison our union
sucked, the union didn't fight to get you your job back when you got a
switch or hit a bumping block, the railroad brought you back because
they don't want to hire and train someone every time a 50 dollar
mistake was made. Do you know how much money that would cost csx if
they terminated everyone the first time they messed up? Not to mention
there would be very few people with more than 5 years of seniority. We
have the same union now that we had before Harrison but can't the
union get them back now? Because they never got you back to begin with,
the company was just more forgiving!

Of course Hunter isn't going to respond to the comments in that article
because he wants the public to think it's just rumors. It's fact! And
as a matter of fact, alot of those same cars I told you about are still
parked everywhere while customers get no shipments. We went past
probably 40 or 50 autoracks today, loaded, sitting in a siding 70 miles
from where they go because all our other sidings are full of Willard
freight that they can't handle. 2 main in new castle has about 150
cars parked on it. There is a stone yard customer in Girard that
hasn't received his freight on a week, and there are probably 100 cars
for him parked in 5 different places. They are pissed and have called NS
for a quote. There is a cold storage place in Warren that handles french
fries for McDonald's, they are making arrangements to utilize another
facility where a different railroad can deliver to them. They received
a reefer car that sat so long, it ran out of fuel and damaged the whole
load. These are not rumors. There is a pipe manufacturer that gives us a
loaded train about once a week or so, we can't get their loads out and
their empties back to them because our yards and sidings are congested
with week (or two)old Willard freight. Again, not rumors. These aren't
small customers. Tell the truth Hunter.

possible. Customers can understand floods or hurricanes but cycle times
going from 2 weeks to a month due to internal changes is not so
understand. The overall bad part is that this will end up with more
product in trucks and not trains so it is a lose for everyone. EEH will
not be there long due to health reasons. I just hope there is a railroad
left. This is good read and covers a lot of things from stock price,
crews, management, power/loco per ton issues/ hump yards but does not
address other not so seen issues as the CSX pulled out from the
national box car pool and pulling out of long standing agreements with
other lines with giving a few days warning etc. I will be praying for
the railroaders families in this time of need.

Per pay half let's say you bring home $4000 that's $8000 bring home
per month. That's 96k per year take home, so in a 30 year career you
would have brought home a little shy of 3 million. Your entire life on
the railroad and you bring home less than 3 million dollars. This guy
gets 84 million up front and might be here 3 years. So basically HH
makes in 3 months what you make your entire life. Is this guy really
worth 84 million? If so we are worth a hell of a lot more we actually
make the railroad work we are the ones in the elements and filth that
go home tired and beat down every day.

Hey Smoked Out

Assuming your not some random troll, Trains stopped all over the place
blocking crossings is the fault of poor management, and bad
dispatching. You would've had my sympathy if not for your false
assumption that our guys are a bunch of lazy careless guys. Do you
really think that our guys like outlawing in the middle of nowhere and
waiting hours on end for a cab ride home. Most of us like the overtime,
but after 12 hours on duty, that's just blood money. As long as your
calling us lazy. Why don't you get up off your lazy ass and drive the
long way around. Why don't you get up off your lazy ass and  start
voting for political candidates that don't give the rich corporations
everything they want. Why don't you get up off of your lazy ass and
call the police when the crossings are blocked. So we can get some heat
on the railroads, for running such a piss poor operation that doesn't
give a shit about employees or the general public or safety in general?

Typical American management. Eliminate thousands of jobs to streamline
operations that will never work but will create enough fake profit for
bonuses and other perks such as new offices, increased management
salaries, etc.

But, but the economy keeps slowing.

Easy answer, Eliminate thousands more jobs. Yes, now we're really lean
and mean...... more bonuses.... Higher management salaries

But, but, the economy keeps slowing.

Easy answer, Automate and eliminate even more jobs..... first
bankruptcy,,, more bonuses.... 

But, but, the economy is still slowing!

Rinse, Dry, Repeat...... Out of business....Liquidation.... more
management bonuses..... final management salary payouts....
Unemployment, EBT, ADC, Welfare for employees.

Management 'team members' move on to the next business in need of
saving.

ALL CSX CREW/ALL DIVISIONS.....NOTICE!

It has been brought to our attention that some managers/supervisors are
forcing engineers to run on territories that they are not qualified or
have not traversed in several years in violation of FRA LAW 240.231 It
has also been reported that Chiefs as well as supervisors are using
intimidation and threats of insubordination if the engineer does not
take the job. Some of these threats include having the engineer pulled
out of service and having them re qualify on their own time with no
pay. Threats from a union contract employee(Chief) should be reported
to their Union representative and their union officials should handle
the steps necessary to counsel their member. Ethic charges should be
filed immediately against and supervisor that threatens or intimidates
any engineer who is requesting that the FRA LAW be followed. The FRA
inspectors in your division should be notified immediately. 
Several divisions are under complete melt down due to the overflow of
freight that has been shifted to their areas. Hunter Harrisons
precision planning has caused freight to be backed up for days along
all divisions and some yards are in complete gridlock and unable to
handle the freight. This however does not allow supervisors who are
under the gun to force engineers to violate FRA LAW. Crews are short
and over worked and many are getting 6 and 7 starts. Locals are not
being run and trains are sitting outside of the yards waiting to get
in. Supervisors are desperate to move the freight any way they can
including violating FRA LAWS.
 240.231-
(b1) For a locomotive engineer who has never been qualified on the
physical characteristics of the territory over which he or she is to
operate a locomotive or train, the pilot shall be a person qualified
and certified as a locomotive engineer who IS NOT an assigned crew
member.

(b2) For a locomotive engineer who was previously qualified on the
physical characteristic of the territory over which he or she is to
operate a locomotive or train, but whose qualification has expired ,
the pilot may be any person, WHO IS NOT AN ASSIGNED CREW MEMBER,
qualified on the physical characteristics of the territory.
THIS DOES NOT MEAN THAT A CONDUCTOR WHO IS ON THE JOB AND QUALIFIED IS
ALLOW TO BE A PILOT. THE LAW IS DIRECT AND IN BLACK AND WHITE. THERE IS
TO BE A PILOT IN THE CAB WITH THE ENGINEER AT ALL TIMES. THE CONDUCTOR
ON THE JOB CAN NOT BE A PILOT FOR THE ENGINEER.

(C)Pilots are not required if the movement is on a section of track
with an average grade of less than 1% over 3 continuous miles , AND

(1) the track is other than main track: OR

(2) the maximum distance the locomotive or train will be operated does
not exceed ONE MILE: OR

(3)The maximum authorized speed for any operation on the track does not
exceed 20 Miles per hour: OR

(4)Operations are conducted under operating rules that require every
locomotive and train to proceed at a speed that permits stopping within
one half the range of vision of the locomotive engineer.
CSX chose to remove the controlled speed rule so this would be
considered running at RESTRICTED SPEED.

Engineers are being forced by intimidation to violate these rules and
are not getting the proper pilots as well as running on main lines with
authorized speeds well above 20 MPH. The dispatcher MUST GIVE THE CREW
an EC1 mandatory directive to run at restricted speed. The dispatchers
can not set intermediate signal to restricted speed therefore they must
issue an EC1 directing the crew to run at restricted speed. 

If you encounter this problem on your division you must immediately
report this to the FRA and to your union representative.
This is also an issue that should be addressed with the USDOT. 

This IS NOT A LAUGHING MATTER AND SHOULD NOT BE TAKEN LIGHTLY. The
chaos that is happening at this very moment is beginning to make all
supervisors react without thinking things through thoroughly.
Desperation to save their jobs and their yards has made many of them go
the extremes to get what ever they can done, including violating FRA
LAWS and the ethics policy. This can not be tolerated no matter how bad
things have become because of Hunter Harrisons new precision planning.
Rules have to be set now. Management must understand that LAWS trump
any new plan that is being set in place.  You must report all
violations as soon as they happen. Its up to you to send the message
that intimidation and violation of FRA LAWS will not be tolerated. Make
a copy of this post and give the information to the crews you work with.
Many do not have code of regulations books or know where to look for
such laws. Educate your fellow crew members and look out for each
others safety. Its a hornets nest out there now and all crews need to
start looking out for each other.

Mr. Harrison, it's not that people can't see your plan, you are
screwing over customers that have paid you for a service that you
aren't providing. If your new plan can't provide the service, then
it's not the time to initiate it. Cars are sitting everywhere, trains
are parked, customers freight is buried under hundreds of other cars
with no capacity to handle it and process it. We are losing these
customers daily. Smaller plants and shops have to shut down and maybe
even go out of business while you figure things out with a skeleton
crew that works under the fear of "get on board or get out". That's
a direct quote that was given to a yardmaster. Your customers that
you're fucking are the reason that you had a railroad to pay you the
rediculous amount that you requested. There are no crews to take these
trains even when we do find a spot for them, and nobody cares. We are
all doing our jobs out here, but you say we are not. Come out and see.
We'll show you.

On the CN when he was here, we went to an hourly rate, from a mileage
rate. Tossed out almost all of the then current working agreements.
Went to a basic 10 hour day. Overtime rate for everything over 10
hours. With some basic agreements. Like calling procedures, and being
run-around for an assignment. Rules covering Holidays, Birthdays,
Personal Days, and Vacations. One thing that became easier was putting
in our time tickets. We no longer had to keep track of every mile we
traveled. It was Start Time to Finish Time. 

No more Yard/Road Jobs......just Jobs, no distinction between the two.
If we got to any terminal with time to work, we worked. Up until we
reached that 10 hour mark, then we tied up. But, once they got us out
working, we usually managed to do that two hours worth of work in four
or more hours, often not even finishing what they gave us. 

Some of the guys only wanted to work in the yard, others only wanted to
work on the road. We bid on regular assignments, some that worked in the
Yard, and others that worked the Road. 

I remember we had a bunch of Turn Jobs. I worked them for a couple of
years. Started at about 17:00, headed toward Chicago with a train. Met
a Chicago crew coming with a train and we swapped trains and returned
to our starting point. 

This was quite a comedy for a few months. One crew in particular, hard
runners, Notch 8 always......   They would return to Battle Creek with
like maybe 5 hours to work, 3 before starting overtime, 2 more at
overtime. But they wanted to just tie up and go home. Nope......the
orders were "Make sure you talk with the Yardmaster when you get in."
   We'd hear them crying and sobbing, and a lot of comments on the
radio to them were like: "What are you doing back so soon?" 
Eventually they learned ..... DON'T COME IN WITH TIME LEFT TO WORK. 

So most of the trains that were taking say 5 to 6 hours between Chicago
and Battle Creek began to take a little longer. But, what was happening
was NOBODY CARED. Nobody was wondering why the trains that were
normally only taking 5 to 6 hours between start and end points was now
taking 7, 8, maybe even 9, or more hours. Nobody cared. 

I wish that I could have kept records of the train times from before
EHH, to after EHH. I know for a fact, that some of the trains coming
into Battle Creek from Chicago, that were only taking 6 or 7 hours took
longer, and a lot of them never even made it all the way in 12 hours.
And the trains between Battle Creek and Port Huron started taking
longer, and then into Toronto from Sarnia was taking longer.  If I
could show it some how, but I can't, you'd see the travel time
between Chicago and Toronto go from about 18 to 20 hours, to like 30 to
36 hours. But nobody cared!!! 

Oh yeah......did we make more or less money before EHH, or after EHH.
During the EHH days I was working a Local Assignment, with pretty
regular hours, getting in on time every day. Well, the last two years I
worked out on the road. 
I had been earning right around $100,000.00 a year. We were still
getting that Productivity Pay. But the last two years I worked I made
over $150,00.00, each year.  But I had to retire, a couple years early,
my knees gave out. 

A lot of what I've said here is just skimming the top. There were a
lot more things happening out there "After EHH", that wasn't
happening "Before EHH."   Before, the crews were calling and getting
all of our paperwork, and information written down, and calling to make
sure the taxi was there to pick us up 30 minutes early. It was run run
run.....and when we got home it was tie up and be gone.  But after EHH
arrived and changed everything, nobody ran for anything. We didn't do
anything, until we got to the yard office. When we went down to the
hotel lobby, if the taxi wasn't there.....oh well. It'll be along
sometime. 

If you really want to cause problems ......  DON'T THINK. DO WHAT THEY
TELL YOU. NOTHING EXTRA. EVERYBODY TURN INTO THAT STUPID IDIOT THAT THE
COMPANY ALREADY THINKS YOU ARE.

Eugene doesn't give a shit about intermodal.    

  Darth Eugene shut down and dismantled Caskey Yard. he showed up it
wasn't his idea to build it so he ripped up the tracks of a multi
million dollar cost to CSX. First yard to be built in 30 years lasted
about 3years.    
1st time Id pools were working!  

I red an article from 2015 that he had serious health issues that would
have caused a sane man to step down.  Power hungry Eugene would not no
matter the cost to CP.   Over 2 years ago had major surgery and still
tethered to an oxygen machine today. If he wore that oxygen mask to the
board then he must ALWAYS need it. The dumbasses at CSX handed the helm
over to him.  A lot of the men and women at Jax that was all for it are
now unemployed or on their way out.

As of mid afternoon today 7/19/17 CSX stock is down $3.25 from previous
close!!!! So for those that don't understand that means you just lost
3.25 for every share you have, if you have a measly 500 shares you lost
over $1500 today. Of course it doesn't close for another 3 hours but it

Do any of my southeast usa friends have any idea what ehh is going to do
with the clinchfield from spatanburg all the way north?  heard anything?
ehh has slowly been adding a train here and a train there back to the
route but not utilizing it as the quickest route to chicago from the
south?  Blue Ridge Subdivision, Florence Spartanburg McCormick
subdivisions.  Has anyone heard of any traffic increases in the area? 
What about the Georgia Road from Atlanta to Augusta?  Share some
insight if you can.  So much more freight can be routed up the
clinchfield to replace the coal, manifest trains can utilize it too. 
Any insight on if it is coming back to life would be appreciated!
Thanks!

Just worried ehh will pull the rails and abandoned this area from South
Carolina north up the Clinchfield.  It was mostly coals, with additional
freights and locols, now this area gets one train north and one train
south, maybe a local.

employees and is applicable to all employees except for a small number
of individuals whose work Requires knee pads and or  oxygen.

Safety Was of great importance at CSX, and is considered outdated and

supports and promotes the health and wellbeing of CSX through a wide
range of lies and intimidation. At the same time, employees are
expected to contribute to The ceo retirement fund  by ensuring they

on the system. Bleed them slowly and smartly.  Don't do anything
obvious that will bring attention to yourself. The yards are already
cloging up!!  Take a extra few minutes here and there to do things. No

Hey shareholder, this company doesn't care about the customers. The
board of directors doesn't care about any of it. They care about that
short term stock price. They have been telling the customers to go fuck
themselves for as long as I've been here. They don't care if you have
1 boxcar, or a thousand covered hoppers a day. If it inconveniences
them or if UPS is within a hundred miles, your freight is going to sit.
I saw them show up and remove a switch at a customers facility because
they just didn't want to deal with them. Spread the word to your
fellow shareholders. He's gutting the company for short term gains and

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

Will never forget talking with US Congresspersons & their staffs -
over 20 yrs. ago - they didn't understand complaints if workers were

when the new attendance policy comes out.  We will all bitch about it. 
We will talk about how this bs will not be tolerated within 60 days our
union will post or mail out a reply.   The letter from the union will
read something like.  "This was a unilateral move by the carrier we
extremely protested the new policy.  We will do everything in our power
to convince the carrier this is outrageous and unacceptable. But
remember our hands are tied this is a company policy. The company
ultimately can create and amend policy as they so desire. Hence the
last 5 policies stuck.

When the carrier will not agree on a reasonable contract on health
care.  The unions will take a vote on whether or not we should strike. 
The YES vote will be around 97% in favor of. There will even be meetings
about the strike and who is to do what and signs will be made.  The
local guys will be off union business making posters and bullshit. 
Then we will get a sub-standard contract. Pay raise will be less than
par.  Insurance will increase.  Work rules will be favor of the
carrier. The union will once again mail out toilet paper stating they
did everything they could and with a carrier friendly administration
this contract surpassed  their wildest imagination.   They will praise
one another for their relentless fight with the carrier.  They will pat
one another on the back for their great success.

A brief update for all the millionaire shareholders out there. HH is
going to make you even richer. REDI Center closed, Tilford Yard will be
sold (Atlanta is a small city anyway, who cares!). Next up, Radnor Yard
in Nashville, (Nashville is booming, we don't need that business),
we'll take the 750 million the city is offering. 300 more job cuts in
Jax today (you are welcome Mantle Ridge!) Wait till the guys and girls
in the field see the new attendance policy (they don't need families
or lives, the railroad is all they need!). If we find an employee that
makes $50 an hour, fire him, and replace him with someone for $20 an
hour (this is precision railroading!). The next union contract will be
complete shit, get ready for paying big dollars for health insurance.
We are doing away with 3-step as well, (so what if we kill a few dads
and brothers) we get to make more money while we sit on our fat asses
and suck on oxygen bottles!!!!

CSX workers, if you are in a city with competing railroads, apply there
now. CSX will be merged in the end. After HH leaves, stocks will crash,
CSX will be parted and sold. Any of your friends that want to work for
the railroad, tell them to run away, like they are on fire! CSX is the
most corrupt, morally bankrupt company in the world. The new executives
at CSX don't care what federal law says, screw the FRA, screw insider
trading laws. Anything to make a buck, and they are daring the feds to
come after them. They simply, are not afraid. You should be!

another unnecessary rule where they absolutely require them, and at

T&E

I don't know about you, but I was lead to believe if we ordered our
prescriptions through mail order they would be cheaper than if we got
them at a retailer (CVS, Walgreens, etc.) If you haven't read a copy
of the NCCC proposal it says that currently we are paying $25.00 for
formulary brand in network retail and $50.00 for formulary brand  in
network mail order.   Did our family read all this wrong in the past?
Were we not told that ordering our prescriptions by mail and doing 90
days at a time would be cheaper?

When is that ass clown Jack Vierling going to get the axe and go back
dispatching ? Daddy Frulla helped him escape from Jax Div Mgr to cushy
AVP job in Jax right when Hunter came in, left everyone else holding
the bag, while he hid.  Right before he left, told me to hold trains
out til we were ready to hump to keep arrival to hump and dwell number
down, making him look good. If you axe me, my dog knows more about
railroading from sniffin my shoes than Jackie V will ever know.  What a
lying, piece of shit, waste of fcking skin.

I remember what the pundits said when the news broke that Harrison was
coming to CSX. Network was different than CN and CP. Was more like a
bowl of spaghetti rather than long straight route miles. Ohhh but HH is
the RR messiah! If the stock price is the ultimate judge of success,
time will tell. Like a football game, talk all the shit you want, but
the score says who is the best. Hunter can bring in all the minions he
wants, but the price (score) tells the story. And if the score doesnt
change much from where it is now, the harder they are going to be on
us. His ego alone will kill his ass if he cant make good on all the
promises. Fear of Failure is the fuel driving the heavy handed tactics.
Hopefully we can ride out the Ego storm and little Paulie will do the
same as Bill Ackman did with CP. Like I said before, NS told HH to go
blow and they are just fine without his expertise! As of closing
yesterday, the scoreboard said so.

We're all fired, violating policy is non-major offense.  Second
non-major violation in three years for same thing results in a major. 
Safety glasses 2 times in 3 years, gone.  Attendance policy violated 2
times in three years, gone.  Major offense also counts in non-major
category.  Looks like two or three strikes and yer out!  Wonder what

  VIOLATIONS THAT AN EMPLOYEE MAY HAVE COMMITTED, WHETHER THOSE
  VIOLATIONS OCCURRED DURING, AT THE SAME TIME AS, OR IN CONNECTION
WITH
  THE INCIDENT THAT RESULTED IN THE INJURY OR NOT; SUCH INVESTIGATIONS
  SHALL NOT BE CONSIDERED AN INVESTIGATION OF AN INDIVIDUAL'S
PERSONAL
  INJURY.
  AN EMPLOYEE SHALL NOT BE DISCIPLINED FOR SUFFERING AN INJURY, OR FOR
  TIMELY AND HONESTLY REPORTING AN INJURY.  AN EMPLOYEE'S INJURY
RECORD
  WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED IN DETERMINING THE APPROPRIATE DISCIPLINE FOR
A
  RULE VIOLATION.

  FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH CSXT'S EMPLOYEE OPERATING MANUAL REGARDING
  INJURY REPORTING WILL SUBJECT THE EMPLOYEE TO APPROPRIATE HANDLING
  UNDER THE IDPAP, DEPENDING UPON THE NATURE AND EXTENT OF THE
DEVIATION
  FROM POLICY, AND THE UNDERLYING CIRCUMSTANCES OF THE FAILURE TO
  COMPLY.

reading up on my contract.  I forgot about the union bending over and
letting csx change the wording on this.  I wonder how many were paid
off or blown for this change.
ARTICLE 4 - SPECIAL PAY DIFFERENTIAL – ENGINEER CERTIFICATION
ALLOWANCE “EC”
 A. Effective on the date CSXT receives written notification of the
ratification of this
Agreement, CSXT locomotive Engineers (including locomotive Engineers
engaged in pilot
service) will qualify for a Special Pay Differential (Engineer
Certification Allowance, “EC”).
 B. Effective the date of this agreement the Special Pay Differential
(EC) will be
fifteen dollars ($15.00) per basic day in freight and yard service plus
$0.15 per overmile for any
and all trips (separate service deadhead included) in such service. The
$0.15 overmile allowance
is not payable to those CSXT Engineers with a seniority date subsequent
to the effective date of
this Agreement. The current CSXT rate will be reduced to eliminate the
$5.00 certification
payment. 

separate service deadhead included!  I remember those fucks saying just
because were letting them change the wording doesnt mean were giving it
up.

All of you better get your operating rules book out and start reading
it from front to back!  You know over half of you haven't even opened
it past the first page. Hell, you never ever read the general
bulletins. Then you cry like whipped pups when they change a claim code
of come out with a discipline change that bit you in the arss because
you got blind sided.

Hear this and hear this now. There are a lot of little word changes and
gray areas that will bite you hard when the king HH makes every little
failure a major crime. You will get 30 days on the street for missing a
side shield. Same as you would get running a red signal. 
Go ahead and laugh now but the last laugh is going to be on you. Ask
your local chairman's. Demand a meeting with your general chairman's.
See how hard they are trying to prevent the king from enforcing
excessive discipline.  It isn't happening.  Your days are numbered. 
And for those of you who are always smart with the "I don't care I
have out of service insurance" you better think again. They wont pay
for insubordination. Talks have it that HH is going to blanket all
these rules under  "you have been told and informed in writing that if
you brake these rules you will be willingly and knowingly defying 
direct written orders and you will be charged with insubordination. HH
want the OOS Insurance gone.  So you better start getting it together
because none of you have the guts to stand together and take on your
union heads.  The King can count on that!

Many don't understand how all the changes are affecting the "APPEAL of
the STOCK INVESTORS".  Let's say you own 100 franchises for a
business.  50 are operating at a 100% profit, 50 are operating at a 50%
profit.  Sounds great right!  Well those 50 at a 50% profit that most
all of us would be extremely happy with and are making us plenty of
money and certainly not costing us anything are dragging down the
average and we can't have that if we're trying to attract investors. 
It looks better if we get rid of those 50 and keep the other's and
boast a 100% profit rather than 75% average profit.  Corporate greed
and the love of money has and always will rule the world.  They ain't
in the business to provide jobs, just want to make a buck.....

#1 :  Rumor is Unions refusing to negotiate outside of National
Bargaining. EHH is going to implement his plan either way.  All pools
will be reduced to a basic day. Either go with the 550 a day for En,
and 450 for conductor's, or get another basic day for the train swap
to go back to your home terminal.  Saving's will be made for the
company regardless.  Claims, who care's, you'll put your train away
in as many tracks as necessary when reaching a yard. ( IE, yard
switching ).  Results in no more hotel bills.
#2 :  Who ever posted about the pools being cut was right on.  Lost all
long pools out of Richmond as of last night when bids went in.  Willard
will only run to Garrett soon, already have a Garrett to Chicago pool
to advance the trains. No need to have overlapping pools but yes, same
as in Richmond, there are not enough crews to advance the trains.  They
don't seem to be concerned with this at the moment and are calling
pools off the extra board to take up the slack.  Long story short we
are going to be starved out until the UNIONS agree to talk.

switches and large equipment already sitting in front of admin
building, tons of markings and stakes all through westbound receiving
yard ready to excavate and remove hump, and change track layout. None
of this was here 2 days ago. Many long pools already on bid screen as
short, turnaround pools. That Willard hotel csx paid for will be

Many managers\officials have been fired, let go, demoted per se, over
the years. 
Never did & never will feel the least bit sorry for those that came
from the field & then chose to take a company position - & later lost
that position - & then come back.  Low life traitors/turncoats.  Hell
with 'em.  Unions should charge one heck of a lot more to those who
switch & wish to retain seniority  OR better yet, just abolish the
practice of allowing a member to keep their prior seniority if/when
leaving the ranks & going into management.

don't want to tell that instead just tell everyone hes quitting to
save reputation?%# 

To anyone in a management position: Why in the hell wouldn't you quit
and go back to the ground? Total up your yearly income and divide it by
your hours worked (spoiler alert your pay sucks)

General example: 6 days a week 12 hours a day for 50 weeks a year is
3600 hours vs 5 days a week 9 hours a day at 2250 hours a difference of
1350 hours so managers work about 1350 hours more per year than non
managers say that manager makes 120,000, divide it by 3600 hours and
you get about 33 per hour. Say that conductor makes 75,000 a year
that's also 33 per hour and it's taxed less and you have more time
for your family or hobbies or whatever. 

The railroad sucks the life out of all of us but especially the
managers. Before HH there were a lot of management positions that I
personally know of where they just sat on their ass all day playing on
a computer or phone leaving the property to take care of personal stuff
and actually working 3 or 4 hours a day, sure it was worth it then but
now you actually have to work and not be an overpaid worthless waste of
space. Not worth it anymore! HH does not like managers, he started from
the bottom now he's there and that's why

Subject: Pool Changes Effective 7/1/17
 
Gentlemen,
 
Over the next few weeks, the ID pools listed below will be reduced to
zero.
All trains covered by the ID pool will either run in short pools or be
combined with other trains currently running in the short pools. 
These
changes are being implemented in an effort to balance the network and
establish an even flow of trains across each subdivision.
 
Effective Saturday, July 1, 2017:
 
*         BA RF A3 Richmond/Philly abolished
 
*         BA RF I1 Richmond/Philly - reduced to zero
 
o   BA BW I1 increases by 2 (8 to 10)
 
o   BA BE FP increases by 2 (16 to 18)
 
Effective TBD:
 
*         AY BE I1 Buffalo/Selkirk
 
*         AY BW IP Buffalo/Willard
 
*         BA WL I1 Willard/Chicago
 
*         BA CW I1 Cumberland/New Castle
 
*         LO BT F3 Cincinnati/NW Ohio
 
In conjunction with the ID pools being reduced to zero, the home
terminal
for Dewitt/Selkirk will be changed to Selkirk, the home terminal from
Connellsville/Cumberland will be changed to Cumberland, and the home
terminal for Cleveland/Buffalo will be changed to Buffalo.
These pools will go to zero:
 
*         AY DW F1 Dewitt/Selkirk
 
*         GL CN F2 Cleveland/Buffalo
 
*         BACW I1 Cumberland/New Castle
 
And these short pools will be reestablished:
 
*         AY SW FP Selkirk/Dewitt
 
*         AY-BW FP Buffalo/Cleveland
 
*         BACW FP Cumberland/Connellsville

Everyone lets make sure we are putting our claims in to even the ones
that you know they wont pay. We need to bombard them with claims
because the more they either pay or deny in claims the better hand we
hold when it comes to contract time, think about it. I hope this makes
sense because I will be hard for me to explain what I'm talking about.
It would be nice if some spectacular employee at each terminal would
type out common claims and exactly how to put them in, then print a
bunch of them and place them out for everyone to get a copy.

First of all let me address Smerry Smerners post.... Excellent read man
keep it up that was very deep, almost felt like reading a piece of art!

Now that that's out of the way........
Here are some things to get rid of
1 Brake sticks, the only car that needs brake stick are those tall
gons.
2 Drug test, or at least don't test for marijuana just the hard stuff
that has a tendency to wreck a family or get a coworker killed.
3 Reflective vest, or at least only mandatory when the sun is down.
4 Safety glasses, they fog up and they leave an ugly tan line on my
pretty face. (besides whens the last time someone got a train in their
eye?) 
5 We should be allowed to wear shorts and also sleeveless shirts
because sometimes it is hot and pants in 95+ degree weather is
dangerous. (besides why can't I get my tan on at work?) 
There are more but moving on.....
There are now several terminals that have an engineer, switchman and
foreman on every yard job Savannah is one of them look it up if you
don't believe me it's JX ST. I would like to know everywhere system
wide that is operating like this please post with the dist/sub-dist any
terminal that runs like this that you know of. 
Come on guys everyone should encourage others to get on here and share
what they know so lets do your part.

Subject: FROM JERMAINE SWAFFORD: Structural Changes

Dear Railroaders,

Today I am announcing changes to support CSX's transformation to
Precision Scheduled Railroading. Effectively delivering on Precision
Scheduled Railroading requires us to have a disciplined and consistent
approach to our railroad design and our operational guidelines and
policies. To that end, we are implementing changes to our team
structure that establish greater clarity and accountability for
executing on these responsibilities. These changes are effective
immediately.

Assistant Vice President Jamie Boychuk and the Service Design team will
lead all of our railroad design initiatives. Their guidance is critical
to help us achieve greater precision in our train schedules, which will
drive improved service, reliability and asset utilization. All functions
are required to adhere to their direction on how we develop our service
design plans and operate our trains to best serve our customers.

In addition, all dispatching offices will now report to Bob Frulla,
senior vice president of Network Operations. This change will deliver
improved communication across our regions, better alignment with our
guidelines and policies, and more efficient execution of our service
plans. With the addition of these new responsibilities, Bob will be
leading the consolidation of the dispatching offices.

I'm confident that these changes will help expedite our progress
toward achieving Precision Scheduled Railroading and look forward to
continued improvements that establish CSX as a highly efficient
railroad.

Remote control boxes aside; am pushing 40 yrs. now & can write honestly
that 10%, maybe less, of locomotive engineers worked with in all this
time did or would do anything that required physical activity. Vast
majority of 'em seem to think that breaking a sweat, getting a
fingernail dirty, etc., is beneath them.

Sit on their butts & move levers, push buttons, stare at gauges,  
screens. Yes, of course those responsibilities are stressful. But,
most have always been worthless when manual labor was needed.

A lot of truth in your post.   

But I've seen several ceo with totally different ideas.  CSX has made
money since it was founded by Snow.  The RR is an absolute monopoly. 
This place can and will make money regardless who is El Capitan. Anyone
can layoff men and close terminals down?HH isn't turning this place
around it was already successful before his. Arrival.    HH legacy or
anyone else affiliated with the RR won't be remembered 20 years after
passing.   No one will even remember his name in 10 years.       

You're correct I can only speak on divisions I've worked. The four
I've worked there are a few flips in a year, a few more dhs  and very
seldom is a trip less than 10 hours.   

I know everything on the RR is time consuming.  Let's say someone has
a 6 hour trip.  By the time lower management makes up their minds goes
over the bs you, talk to dispatcher, wait on dispatcher bulletins, talk
to customer service for work order go over paperwork find an error, talk
to everyone again get it ok'd. Now you're ready to go but the damn cab
isn't there. Call cab company call chief.  Trainmasters calls you so
explain what the hell is taking so long. Ride shows up dh to train
traffic slows you down. Finally make to train unlock it, fire up the
engines, take the brakes off buzz up dispatcher, buzz up dispatcher,
buzz up dispatcher, dispatcher answers ok bulletins. Tells you you will
leave after the 3rd train.  3rd train passes no signal buzz up
dispatcher buzz up dispatcher buzz up dispatcher dispatcher answers ask
if you stiil have a cab?  You tell him no he says I'll order you one
because you don't have enough time.etc etc etc

If you work off of an xtra board that draws guarantee then it would be
in you're best interest to drop a turn, mark off sick, or get personal
business at least every pay half because that way you won't get paid
any guarantee. If they pay out guarantee they will cut a turn off which
means furlough. Yeah it sucks to not get paid guarantee but it sucks
more to be furloughed. Think about it

After seeing the picture of Hunter Harrisons photo on stage at the
shareholders meeting and looking at probable health issues related to
poor circulation in his legs and that he needs CONSTANT oxygen, if you
took the oxygen off him and lay him in a casket he would look normal at
a layout. Are the shareholders that blind to think when he says his
health is not going to stop him from turning CSX around, I would tell
you the same thing to get the money. I bet when they saw this photo
they are now wondering how long they have before they have to sell
their stock options and cash in. Not long with the PAD problems he is
experiencing. Hope the next blood clot doesnt happen soon for your
sake. Good luck suckers. Hes got your money in his wifes and kids bank
accounts. Might want to think twice the next time a ceo has health
issues and the ceo says no to a independent medical evaluation. If he
had that independent evaluation he would not be ceo today. Think about
it he was on oxygen during the first conference call. He says oxygen is
used only sometimes,really....If thats true wouldnt he not have it on
full time in front of you while talking to you at the annual
stockholder meeting...THINK

Interesting reading, the post by 2 longs a short and a long.

Author is probably a jealous FNG who ought to bear in mind that 30+ yr.
employees have forgotten more than he/she will ever experience.

May be just another one of those type of persons that profit would be
made if they could be bought at true value & then sold for what they
think they're worth.

As far as to who is the better switchman, railroader, etc. - who cares
anymore?  Piss-poor switchman pay rate is the same as it is
for the excellent switchman.  Not much, if any at all, appreciation is
ever received for doing a good job.  

Every complaint about long term employees could be countered with 10 or
more regarding FNGs.

It's funny how HH has done shook everything up and now you see guys
with 15+ years that have held the same job for 10 years are having to
work other jobs and you really see who knows how to railroad and who
was just accustom to a routine. Guys with 15 years that can't switch
cars to save their life wtf. Humbling especially for the ones that were
so proficient in the job that they had held that did the same exact
thing day in and day out. Funny because it's a lot of the same guys
that are cocky toward cubs and xtra board guys. Been talking smack for
years not thinking they would have to back it up one day. More to come
when those yardmasters hit the ground you know who you are.
I respect the guy with no shame in asking a junior employee for a
little help on something.
I pitty the fool with too much pride that would rather just look dumb
faking the funk. Trust me if you don't know wtf you're doing we all
see and know it, your seniority doesn't mask the fact that you don't
know wtf you are doing. 30+ years of service doesn't make you good at
your job or make you better than a guy with 6 months.
Gal is to be used interchangeably with guy throughout this rant,
however the few females in this industry that I have come across are
damn good railroaders that put a lot of the guys to shame

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Jackmeoft from Corporate Office, let me say this, coming from both
sides of the isle. I was a RFE for Southern Pacific and retired as an
Engineer. Until you can walk a mile in someone else's shoes, don’t
judge them or their job, “Glorified Truck Driver.” How many times have
you gone to work at 6pm? Next morning at 6am you’re sitting in some
siding waiting for a relief crew, you finally get to a hotel about 9 or
10 that morning, then do it all over again that night. I’ve known many
of you MBA's at the corporate level. Many have more degrees than a
compass, but couldn’t find there way home without a GPS. Does that fit
your MO? The railroad industry is very hard on their people, management
included. Just ask many Trainmasters of Road foreman. But, your CSX
Railroad is by far the worst. Something I’m sure, many in Jacksonville
take as a badge of honor. As far as HH goes, only time will tell. When
it comes to people, the best indication of future performance is...past
performance.

I don't feel sorry for all the management positions that have been done
away with! There are a few decent managers that are worth having but for
the most part worthless. Does anyone actually feel like they need to be
managed? We could get more work done without them around! The sneaky
turds would hide out in the bushes to try and find a reason to fire
you! It's kinda hard to railroad when you're constantly wondering if
someone is watching you and looking for a reason to fire you! If HH can
get rid off 1000 managers pretty much overnight and still function then
apparently you were just an useless expense. Some of the managers have
no clue how to manage anyway.... Do they not know that having an
attitude and yelling and rushing us actually works the opposite of what

I Came in for my yard job and 3 minutes after my start time the
trainmaster was already hounding me to get in a csx vehicle so he could
 drive us to our yard power. This was before I could go over my work
with the yardmaster and ask any questions about the work.also no time
to go over our release forms and bulletins. i understand that I rarely
leave the yard to need the bulletins , but I still go over them.on top
of that I still haven't had a chance to give the work over to my
engineer and go over it with him on how and what we're are doing . I
understand they don't want us bullshitting in the bullroom with others
but these fucking managers are gona get someone hurt or killed .shit
takes time when you start your shift.  Then when there's a derailment
they will sure to blame the crew and not wanna hear how rushing us had
nothing to do with it.

What do we do now to save our railroad before it's too late? Any

selling our stock would that do anything? Someone thats smart should
come up with a good plan for us to follow before csx is completely

Our union steward has been laid off for over a month.  Meanwhile  there
has been an ID pool lost and two of our pools have been combined.  
Response by said union steward  "O they can do that."  I've never
heard that one before.  I guess the carrier was just being nice to let
us have different pools.  Well  not NOW thank you.

“Because track and yard capacity is finite, adding more equipment
creates congestion and slows down the system. While it may sound
counterintuitive, reducing fleet size actually enables a railroad to
move more volume. By running fewer and heavier trains, faster and on
schedule, assets can be utilized far more productively and can yield
significant savings,” EHH

Anyone that credits Hunter Harrison for the success of anything at any
railroad is a moron! Driving the cost to operate a business down will
obviously make the company more profitable, but a successful strategy
drives the cost to operate down in a way that is sustainable long term.
Basically what I'm saying is anyone can come in and fire thousands of
employees, shut down yards, sell off parts of the company, etc. 
Harrisons approach in a nutshell!

Option 2 that does last long term would be expanding business by simply
going after the coal and don't comment that coal won't last long term
until you do the research because I will embarrass you. There is enough
coal available right now to last well over 200 years that we know of.

Why isn't Harrison going after the coal?

Could he intentionally be destroying the company so CSX and all of its
assets are easily and cheaply acquired in a merger? 

Stock is down today $1.65 from yesterday! I already transferred mine
about a month ago it took 20 minutes online

Could be that Harrison & his backers prefer just "long haul" and
their plan is to let short-line RRs and the trucking industry have all
the other business & will just milk csx dry & bow out with $$.

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.

trains as they’re running now with the workforce they have. It’s
structurally impossible,” Finnson said. “We have a chronic shortage of
workers.”

CP cut its unionized workforce by 1,500 people or approximately
one-third under Harrison, who ran the company from mid-2012 until he
stepped down in January to pursue the top job at Florida-based railway

Really? In disguise? The hedge fund leader is the new CEO!
To think that HH gives a damn about the future of CSX is
ignorant at best. He cares about himself and short term gains.
After all he has one foot in the grave already. Why would he really
care about long term? This amounts to no more than legalized robbery!
If the man had any morals at all he would be home petting his horses
on the ass and baby sitting a classic car collection while counting
the millions and millions of dollars he all ready stole. Sick little

Witnesed first hand the SC DISPATCHER in Nashville fuck up and not
give
a southbound HD crew an ec-1 for a 25 mph around Ekin mile post. He
comes on the radio and says after they've knocked down the southward
Amqui signal .......hey can you guys just slow your speed down to
about
25 mph for the next few miles account rough track......Are you fucking
kidding me.....have a train crew miss that speed order and bam!  They
on the street. Garbage ass dispatching. Ol HH will weed their asses
out
soon enough.

10-20 Years?  How have you survived this long without a basic
understanding of how things work?  A dispatcher taking a slow order
from MOW can't be expected to instantly know where a train is, cannot
merely knock down every absolute signal until he knows either.  Cannot
give a signal if an unbulletined order exists when requesting the
signal.  We're better off not becoming cannibals attacking other union
brothers.  You need to consider that dispatchers & yardmasters are
having additional work out upon them without any additional
compensation.  I have seen every desk I deal with doubled in
responsibility since I started.  The yardmaster situation is even
worse.   While some RFE's were drones, many I encountered were decent
guys just trying to doma job per F RA and company rules.  It is my
understanding that the RFE's who were not shifted into Trainmaster
slots were not given anything, merely left to look for a place to work.
 Stranded, some far away from their seniority, with houses and families
to move.  We need to consider who the real enema is here.

since HH took over no one has been let go from CMC from management.
Why?
  Clerks though are now being furloughed due to the previous cuts made
under Ward.  With these cuts and the CAPS policies clerks will be no
more. 
 any ideas on how  HH handles union members who have had "protected
status" under the CBA?  
CMC Clerks or any clerk with minimal seniority who are not protected
are going to be let go with no chance of returning

### FMLA handling is being changed also where anyone new to FMLA will
have to reapply every 90 days instead of yearly

On time departure time crap has been a PITA for a long time.  
Company BS.
Fact:  Dispatchers, managers, would show train departure times
whenever, maybe even before a train's locomotive power was ready. A
major pay hassle back when road crews were entitled to ITD - even
though the ITD pay rate got frozen at the 1985 scale.  
  
[FNGs often are ignorant of the fact, or have forgotten that 15-20
min. of ITD is/was later encompassed into each daily trip rate.]

we here in the yard have been told, you will be ready to work as soon as
your shift begins. if your yard jobs starts at 1500 you will be ready to
walk out to your power at 1500. if its snowing outside , you will have
your anti slip spike boots on at 1500 and they are implying that they
want you putting your boots on , your vest on and safety glasses on at
home and being ready to work at your on duty time. and if you are not
ready you better have a answer for them why you are not dressed and
ready. only acceptable answers will be getting bulletins, getting job
briefing , or waiting on power. so if its 1505 and you don't have your
boots on you will be written up . you drinking a coffee and eating a
doughnut at 1503... bam written up......saying hello to a co worker you
haven't seen in a while and bam...... write up. so now you can get on
and off moving equipment and not get in trouble, but not have on YOUR
csx safety gear on and ready to go 2 minutes after you star time

Hey guys.  That 300 million you are paying Hunter is way too much.  I'd
screw up your railroad for a fraction of that.  I come cheaper because I
bought my degree from a diploma mill.  Hunter cut off 1000 workers
before he even started.  That's pretty good, but I'd also cut off any
tuition assistance cause that's a waste.

Dear Colleagues,

Strong leadership on the Operations team is critically important as we
work to deliver greater efficiency and regain our industry leadership
position. To guide Operations through this transition effectively, I am
announcing changes to my senior leadership team. These are individuals
in whom I have the utmost confidence based on their deep experience,
passion for our business and unwavering commitment to CSX. Together,
they will help us continue to expedite our advancements in safety,
service and efficiency.

These leadership changes reflect our stated intention to reorganize our
operations around the primary and local networks to improve efficiency
and service to our customers. The leaders will report to me, unless
otherwise indicated. Effective immediately:

Mike Pendergrass will continue to serve as Chief Transportation
Officer, leading the implementation of our network segmentation
strategy. Reporting to Mike are:
·         Jermaine Swafford, who is appointed vice president of
Transportation, with responsibility for our Primary Network;
·         Gery Williams, who is appointed to the newly created position
of vice president of the Local Network, with responsibility for helping
us further improve first-mile, last-mile service to our customers; and
·         Bob Frulla, who will have expanded responsibility as vice
president of Network Operations, with oversight of Customer Service,
Passenger Operations and PTC.
The corridor structure will be further supported by the leadership of
Larry Koster, who will serve as General Manager of the Eastern
Corridor, headquartered in Florence, S.C.; David Hamby, who will serve
as General Manager of the Central Corridor, headquartered in Atlanta,
Ga.; and Bill Setser, who will serve as General Manager of the Northern
Corridor, headquartered in Indianapolis, Ind. Larry, David and Bill will
report to Jermaine.

Brian Barr is promoted to vice president of Mechanical, in recognition
of his strong performance as chief mechanical officer for the Southern
Region.

John Bradley is appointed vice president of Service Design, having
previously served as vice president of Southern Region Transportation.
The Car Management and Process Excellence teams will now report to
John.

Rod Logan is appointed assistant vice president of Safety, responsible
for further strengthening our focus and performance in this critical
area.

Ricky Johnson will remain as vice president of Engineering, with
expanded responsibility to include oversight of our Highly Automated
Railroad initiatives.

Mike Smith, Jim Marks and John Hart are retiring. Mike, Jim and John
have made important contributions to CSX during their many years of
service, for which we are immensely grateful. We wish them equal
success in their future endeavors.

The Operations leaders will work together over the coming weeks to
finalize their reporting structures. Please join me in supporting them
as they take on new responsibilities and help us safely and reliably
serve our customers and our nation’s economy.

Sincerely,

Cindy Sanborn

I agree, a lot of claims that are submitted for review are not valid.
However, I have personally called employees in the Labor Relations
Dept. and asked them what conditions have to be met for a specific
claim to be valid.  I have submitted the valid claim per Labor
Relations instructions only to have it declined. Once declined, I have
called the specific Labor Relations employee back and asked why it was
declined. Their answer is "Their is a Process that must be followed to
get the claim paid" and they say forward it to my Local Chairman.  

   Well B.S. The "Process" if fucking stealing from their employees
and not honoring the agreement that was signed by the Carrier.  It is
nothing more than a attempt to overwhelm the Local and General
Chairman's offices appealing Valid claims that should have been paid
initially.  All this ethics training is just a bunch of lip service as
CSX is speaking out their ass about being a ethical company. Just like
their anti-retaliation policy, that's a story for another day. OUT

Everything you posted was 100% correct. What you did not post was the
fact that the members do not need the union to start a chain reaction
of worry within the companies upper management. What the members fail
to understand is the power they have in reporting constant violations
of federal and state laws. We received a call a few days ago from a
concerned crew member who was being forced to violate FRA laws and
regulations and wanted to know what to do. He was advised to
immediately call the appropriate FRA representative and file a
complaint. His first comment was one of fear of retaliation. He was
them asked why did he bother to call if he wasn't going to take the
advise and if he expected us to call that wasn't going to happen. He
was the one in the situation and knew what was happening.

People, if you know your unions are worthless and possibly bought under
the table then it is your responsibility to take control of your
situation. The carrier can easily violate your union agreement. If you
have not figured that out yet then your in for a long miserable haul
working for the railroad.
The carrier CAN NOT break state and federal laws. Yes, they do on a
daily basis but it is up to you to report these violations and to send
a message to the company that you mean business. If your rights are
violated on a daily basis then the state and federal regulators should
know when are being violated as well. This is not a fair game that the
railroads are playing and you can not expect to play fair and make a
difference. It doesn't work that way. 
Take a stance and do what is right. Report all violations and demand
fair play and treatment for yourself and your state and federal
regulators,

The post was not from Adam. Wrong assumption. Not sure he would
appreciate his name being posted on this site. Sure you meant no harm.
Now a little education for you and other posters.

As for your comment to sick, posting on this site that the CMC managers
are being put on notice is the perfect thing to do. If you have not read
any post on this site before, the FRA as well as an appointed team for
the lawyers of CSX reads this site every day. It is a blatant violation
for a crew caller to call someone in the manner that "SICK" has
pointed out when the crew managers are well aware that this topic is
covered in the SSA and is written in black and white. There is NO GRAY
AREA! The excuse they are using now is that the IVR is violating the
rule. It is set up to automatically run the rosters and anyone in AO
status will get automatically called in the window between 2201 and
0000. NO EXCUSE!!
They are responsible for the programing of the IVR system. They have
been using this as an excuse since they were down sized and jobs were
replaced by the machine. 
If you having issues with anyone in CSX and need to point out the
problems do not hesitate to post your notice to them on this site. 
It is a fact that TM, RF and other supervisors visit this site on a
regular basis and have been heard very frequently discussing the topics
posted on here. Therefore they can not say they are not aware of
situations that are taking place and therefore they are turning a blind
eye. Yes, they do nothing about what they read but that puts them at
fault according to the ethics policy.

You should have received a copy of the code of ethics in the mail. Read
page 38 covering social media. Read the first line of the last
paragraph!

IF YOU SEE SOMETHING POSTED THAT COULD BE POTENTIALLY HARMFUL TO CSX,
REPORT IT IMMEDIATELY! The csx group who is assigned to monitor this
site regularly is NOT EXEMPT from this policy! Actions such as those
that are occurring within the CMC could easily be seen as an attempt to
create hostility.

Official notice came in today. The Engineers bonus will be figured at
100% and will be payable on February 22nd. There have been rumors
floating around that some in upper management have been claiming they
were getting a 125% bonus. These are just rumors and nothing has been
clarified. However it does not matter. The contractual bonus agreement
states that the bargaining unit will not request an audit or review of
the corporate books to determine if your percentage is being figured
fairly.

A DAMN THING ABOUT WHAT WE BEEN THROUGH OR WHAT THE COMPANY HAS DONE TO
US. YOU JUST SPOUT YOUR CSX LOVIN CRAP CAUSE YOU JUST WANT SO BAD TO BE
CHOO CHOO MAN!

Let me enlighten you! Some of us paid for our damn jobs. Forked out
over 6 grand to get it. Do some research and see how many filed
lawsuits against the company for false advertising for the jobs. See
how many found out later they were told bullshit by the recruiters when
you went to take their test. Got new for you! The judges ruled in our
favor. Found out all the bull shit we were fed and the false pay
advertised in the papers. Didn't find out how bad it was going to  be
until all the training was said and done. We stayed to get our money
back. Then stuck around hoping our unions would help out. SOME OF US
ARENT QUITTERS.  We got a right to voice our opinions against the
people we work for and put our money into. We bought our damn jobs.
Money keeps us here when we get paid what the hell we are entitled to.
Its real easy for you to sit in your basement and play with your toy
train and judge others
Atom smasher created this site because he understands what the railroad
life is like when they treat you like shit and dump on your union
agreement and play F..games with you! You hack it because you got in to
deep hoping things would get better when you get more seniority. Real
easy to say quit when you don't know how many years you we got in or
how much we sacrificed to get the job in the first place!

So get off this site you worthless moron. CSX SUCKS is a site for real

Crew management

What the hell is going on down there. You know its a serious ethic
violation to put false and misleading information in an employees
history, right?

You busted several trains the last few days after the employees were at
work but you noted in their history that you busted it before they were
ever called at home. WHAT GIVES WITH THIS? I know for a fact you showed
one call busted 30 minutes before the IVR ever called the crew at home
and they were already at work for an hour. There has been a lot of
misleading info going into peoples histories including mine.  Whats up
with the cover ups. Who is ordering you to lie and put in bogus
entries. Is it the DTO or CHIEF trying to cover up stupid decisions on
calling trains?   Come on, be a man and tell us what is really going
on. Is it a way to get busted tickets denied. Labor relations can say
per the history we were never called? Put claims on the research
burner? This is sneaky shit if that's the game. Some of us aren't
falling for it.  We are watching your every move!

    Any info as to who the Moles are at Avon? I'd like to have some
names. Most of the managers at Avon have Facebook profiles and I look
at the managers friends. Why on earth would a T&E employee be friends
with a manager on Facebook, these guys aren't out fucking friends.

known as the geaorgia line.Since obamas war on coal csx has rerouted
their trains to save money.The Georgia line is not being used nearly as
much and the trains are only allowed to run 25 mph to cut back track

To all posters

We  have revisited numerous post going back a week before CSX LOVER
showed up and we just cant find any particular topic that would have
warranted a company mole coming out from under his rock to disrupt
further discussions. He might be the pines imposter under another name.
However, he does show more signs of rage than normal so if it was a post
that set the company off it had to be a damaging one.

We need your help. If you could take the time to review older post we
would greatly appreciate it. Something had to be posted that caused the
company to send out a red flag. It could be something as tiny as single
comment. In the meantime we will continue to look. Happy hunting!

CSX LOVER


First off, they are NOT your brothers when you get hired. You have to
earn the right to be called a brother. Second, if you think you are
just going to come out here and ride trains like a little boy who
fantasizes when playing with his toy train then think again. You will
be a low seniority boy who will play with a toy train(remote) and pound
the rocks first. You will have a hard time and wont last long because
you have absolutely no idea what goes on out here in our business. You
also sound like a foamer and no one hates a foamer more than an old
head who has sweat and worked his butt off for years doing the old
fashioned hard stuff and then have some young buck straight out of CHOO
CHOO-U who never pounded a rock in his life try to tell him how to do
his job! I would suggest you have a second job ready for you if you
even make it through conductor school This business is no place for
little boys who just want to "COME ON AND RIDE THOSE TRAINS!" Oh, and
don't forget to suck up to your local chairman if you get hired because
you will need him when the company steals thousands from you over the
years, writes your foaming butt up for something bogus and intimidates
you into breaking fra laws and rules and you don't have the nuts to
stand up to them! I hope you have a tight belt for those big boy pants
because its going to take awhile for them to fit you!


Sorry to offend those who don't like things posted on several forums
but this needs to be seen by as many little boy foamers as possible.

SAVE SAVE SAVE:

When I ran the RR a few years ago, one of corporates' biggest fears is
that, the rank and file will wake up some day, and start saving and
accumulating their hard earned wages. The benefit of saving your hard
earned wages is PERSONAL LEVERAGE. 
Imagine the leverage one could have with a solid foundation of assets
amassed when Uncle Pete comes calling with the same old rule book
violations.
A combined unity of TE&Y employees with LEVERAGE can overcome any
obstacle, from any overpaid CEO.

Do not spend your entire RR career being a whore to your bill
collectors and RR CEO'S!

Has anyone heard anything about what we might be getting as a bonus
this year. Thee are no rumors or gossip floating around. Most of us are
keeping our ears open to see if they are planning another stunt for
upper management to compensate for their bonus loss. Wonder what kind
of "TEAM BUILDING" trip they are planning this year. Cant do the
paint ball camp or the trip to Las Vegas anymore since that was
exposed. Got to come up with something they can keep low key. Something
they can hand out $10,000 pocket money for expenditures for each. We're
betting it will be some kind of cruise off the coast of florida. Some
kind of wine and dine for Marketing.... any clues?

THE CSXT CREED:
The cost of employees is bankrupting the company, especially when they
persist in demanding to do things that they know how to do. That
concept is obsolete. In order to protect management bonuses and stock
prices, employees will be required to do whatever we tell them to do
whenever we tell them to do it, whether they know how to do it or not.
However, if in the course of such work, said employees violate any of
the rules that apply to what they don't know how to do, management
will immediately hold a fair and impartial hearing as part of the
process of firing them. 

This policy does not apply to the accounting and finance departments.
Incumbants in those positions will be required to produce the required
credentials and keep them up to date.

Below is a post I copied from TrainOrders.com that someone posted. You
cooperate executives from CSX don’t need to hire these three piece suit
high dollar lawyers to write up some ambiguous agreement. Just copy this
post and take it to National Negotiations. I’m sure the Eastern Lines
BLE will rubber stamp it.

..................................................


Let me guess...the carrier wants: (1) one person in the cab, a licensed
engineer (2) An hourly wage, not to exceed Federal minimum wage scale,
overtime after 16 hours at Timekeeping’s desecration (3) Adapt CSXT’s
attendance policy of ONE DAY off per month. (4) Allow engineer to
perform all work normally handled by conductor, line de-rails,
switches, etc. (5) Eliminate tie-up for undisturbed rest rule, for all
employees (6) Abolish all regular Pool Assignments and establish one
common extra-board for operating employees. (7) Eliminate 25 mile limit
for all patch crews/dog catch jobs. (8) Allow $1.00 meal allowance (10)
Abolish all Held Away From Home Terminal pay (11) Dead Head and travel
time will not go against Hours of Service Time.
Have I left anything out? You Labor Relations people feel free to copy
this and take it to the National Negotiations.
 Have I omitted anything. Oh! (12) Engineer on pool freight assignments
to be attached to heart and blood pressure monitor, capable of remote
stimulation by dispatcher’s office or company officials.

ALL CREWS!!!

What retired posted about your unions is only half right. You can get
your unions involved in your plight. As a ex union rep with 10 years of
experience in a much more well known union I CAN tell you what you need
to do.

Unions are not as they were in the past. In the 60's the unions backed
their workers 100% with out any pay off/kick backs under the table. Yes,
you did have a group of dirty back stabbers but they were usually
handled in the appropriate way. The unions and their members had
backbone. Todays unions are nothing but yellow bellied corrupt elected
officials that have no interest but to pad their pockets and keep
management happy.

Now, if you want the support of your unions and you want to see them
step up to the plate, THIS IS WHAT YOU MUST DO!

First you feed on their arrogance. The unions that you are FORCED to be
a member of want and need publicity. They thrive on the theory "LOOK
WHAT WE DID FOR OUR MEMBERS!"  This fools the public into thinking
they actually care and deserve the money they take from you and put in
their pockets!

You HAVE TO draw attention to the work place. In the railroad business
the only thing that does that is slowing trains down. You can not
stike. The only recourse you have is to not show up or follow every
rule in the book to a tee.  Take the time to do as every rule says.
When those eots go out as retired stated, do as the law says. When cars
need to be shopped, DO IT! Timely production is a must in the railroad
industy.  

Once you start drawing the attention of the corporate office heat will
come down on the yard. There will be teams sent to your yards to
investigate the falling numbers. This is when you have the most power.
This is when you corner you LC's in numbers and demand some results.
Results that you are PAYING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY FOR!

This is when your unions will step in to save the day. This is their
opportunity to act like they had everything to do with what is
happening and come to the rescue of railroad management. You will now
have your unions by the balls. They have to do something in your favor.
They cant afford to walk away when you are holding the reigns.

None of this would be necessary if the railroads would just honor the
agreements and pay a fair price for your hard work done.  Taking years
to pay claims if just total bullshit and wouldn't be happening if your
unions did as they are paid to do.  The railroads are nothing more than
bullies because your unions have allowed it. 

Do what you must to get fairly represented. Its your money. You are
forced to be a union member, enforce your rights. Many do not know that
they can sue their unions for not enforcing their agreements in a timely
manner.  You can get your own representation. It is your federal right.
Taking control of your unions requires taking control of your yards.
The ball is in your court. You have the power. You just have to muster
up the gust to enforce your rights.

Don't complain about Robert Frulla cause if you do then the piece of

killed on the Huntington division when he enter DTC territory without
any permission from the dispatcher. Almost hit a train head on while
hi-railing, and he also hit a coal truck on a crossing. It was covered
up nicely. I don't know if you guys really pay attention or not, but
when officials screw up then they get promoted, but when we screw up
then we get put on the street. But, if your Godfather is John Snow then
you'll just get promoted like Frulla..

To the person that said CSX is run by clowns..you are right. My industry
was not serviced for 2 days last week and was not serviced over the
weekend. Now when I talk to the terminal manager he told me there was a
problem with a locomotive and they had no backup locomotives. Now when
the crew shows up this morning they tell me it was not true that the
real reason was crew shortages. So because CSX is refusing to recall
people my business should suffer? Productivity fell sharply last week
because of CSX not by my people and we bear the responsibility. No
longer..I will be on the phone today with NORFOLK SOUTHERN..Lets see if
they can get the job done.

I no longer complain about FMLA. The truth is that after CSX forced
people to relocate many had to get FMLA so they could just have the
opportunity to go home. In my view its wrong that everyone is governed
under the same attendance policy..some boards have 2 off days, some
have 1, others have no off days. So the boards with 1 or no off days
are the ones that CAPS hurt the most. Thats unfair that the only way a
persob can get off is to mark off sick. You can forget marking off
personal business with the boards cut way too low. CSX knows its a
problem but they dont care. So now people get FMLA so they can mark off
as needed..CSX has created this monster..I bet if Sanborn needs a day
off she doesn't have any points taken..Sanborn has killed
CSX..employee morale was already low before she set on the throne.
Anyway every employee should have FMLA..this place is the reason my
stress is high as well as my blood pressure..time to apply

I guess Mr. FMLA is fortunate enough that his terminal was not closed
and is not working 200+ miles from his home. CSX has forced people to
get FMLA because they are an abusive employer...this company is
horrible to work for..they don't have to be but they choose to be. I
will say Mr. FMLA if you did not have FMLA abd you got forced to
relocate to work you would be acquiring it for sure. Not everyone has
the ability to sell their house or relocate their famlies. So quit
bitching Mr. FMLA..you have no right to bitch

To those of you complaining about those employees that have FLMA might
as well get over it. CSX has forced people to go out and get it..and I
no longer blame employees for doing so. With all these terminal and
yard closures there are many employees now forced to work hundreds of
miles away from their homes..what do you expect those people to do? CSX
has disrupted many peoples lives this past year without regard or
concern for their employees and their families..so do you really expect
employees to care if they disrupt service on the railroad? The employee
morale is horrible and many employees are bitter toward this outfit and
rightfully so. CSX is not interested in moving freight. We have trains
sitting on our subdivision every week because they are stubborn and
refuse to call people back. No wonder they are tanking..how can they
attempt to recruit new business when they cannot even service the
business they have. One would think that this company would want better
numbers but with this regime its not going to happen. When the company
works against its employees the employees work against the
company..maybe one day they will be smart enough to figure that out

A supervisors gets unprofessional in your face and orders you by
intimidating you and harassing you to go out and drag in a 3rd train
on

Then the employee is pissed and while he is out he isn't thinking
straight and makes an unsafe move that might get him and his partner
in
trouble. Then after being screwed over all night he says the hell with
this hell hole and marks off sick the next day. This puts his butt on
the table now for having an availability problem.

The problem with using the National Labor Relations Act is that we are
not in it. Over the years our laws have gotten similar, and merging it
HAS OFTEN BEEN CONSIDERED, but we are still different. Best to remember
that. AND, both union and management folks have spent years keeping up
with traditional case law and black letter law, and do not wish to
learn a new system from scratch. Kindly note that laws not labor
related, such as EEOC, ADA, FMLA, etc. are neither labor law nor RR /
Airline specific labor law, and should be examined with great interest,
even if your union rep pretends it is not relevant and wishes to stay in
the 1930's. Neither the company nor the union wish to jump into the
1960's, with all those scary new words.

The FMLA Issue:

Lets put this in the proper perspective. FMLA was Enacted under the
Clinton Administration. Many years before the CSX takeover of Conrail.
It was enacted SPECIFICALLY to deal with ABUSIVE EMPLOYERS. Think about
that folks......

FMLA was enacted to deal with ABUSIVE EMPLOYERS!!!!
FMLA was enacted to deal with ABUSIVE EMPLOYERS!!!!
FMLA was enacted to deal with ABUSIVE EMPLOYERS!!!!
FMLA was enacted to deal with ABUSIVE EMPLOYERS!!!!

Okay now! Now that I've made that point lets talk about the
-- present situation vs. the previous situation.--

Conrail was in business many years after FMLA was enacted and had VERY
FEW EMPLOYEES on FMLA.

CSX Enacted VERY HARSH Attendance policies
CSX Enacted VERY HARSH Discipline policies

Now we have everyone on FMLA!!!! And these IDIOTS running CSX say we
have an FMLA problem !?!?

OK I'm going to yell here. But not at my fellow union brothers. I'm
going to yell at you Company suits on here. I'm going to yell at you
guys because your purposely dense. So I'm going to yell so that maybe
the light will come on in your thick heads, and maybe....you guys will
get a clue!!!!!

CSX IS AN ABUSIVE EMPLOYER!!!!! THAT'S WHY YOU HAVE SO MANY PEOPLE ON
FMLA!!!!! You IGNORANT MORONS!!!!!

It has always amazed me throughout my 35+ years on the RR. How
incredible the work ethic was in the RR Industry. The greater majority
of my fellow railroaders would work 70 to 80 hours plus every week
(albeit the greed for money was the overwhelming motive) But
nonetheless they did it. And this was for decades, during which they
were never threatened or harassed to do so.

So now we have Management regimes that are so greedy and arrogant they
won't even discuss the issues with the unions, Yes that is correct Mr.
Corp. The Unions NEVER AGREED to these Absentee/Discipline policies.
They were shoved down our throats. Bottom line is this
 THEY DON'T WORK!!! 

The present generation of RR workers have NO loyalty to their
employers. They don't merely dislike their taskmasters THEY HATE their
employers with a PASSION! This is not to be confused with not liking
their jobs. They love their jobs. why else would they put up with these
working conditions so long? They HATE THE PEOPLE who run these RR's I
see it everyday when I work. A decision comes along between whats best
for the RR vs. Employee benefit. Employee wins every time and when
there is no benefit THEY STILL choose the option where the company
loses. I've seen employees take the path that's harder to do if it
will cause the company harm, time after time. The Hatred is that bad! 

From a business point of view it is REALLY BAD POLICY to alienate your
workforce to a point that your employees are working against you.

Unfortunately the folks in Jacksonvile DON'T CARE!!
Unfortunately the folks in Albany DON'T CARE!!
Unfortunately the folks in your local Terminal Offices DON'T CARE!!

Apparently here at CSX we don't make money by transporting customers
products.
Apparently we make money by Threatening Employees! 
Apparently we make money by Firing Employees!

Apparently we like to create problems for ourselves that cause
motivated workers to lose motivation and instead focus all their
efforts at spending time with their loved ones, and friends, Instead of
fanatically trying to spend time at work every waking minute of the day
making money !!!  ..........

As my generation did!

ALL UNION MEMBERS!

LESSON 1 for this week!

The NMB(National Mediation Board) has no authority to investigate or
remedy employee grievances against an employer. The role of the NMB in
the railroad industry is to conduct representation elections and to
mediate agreement between the carrier and union in collective
bargaining negotiations,
A union certified by the NMB is the sole representative of the
certified group of employees(craft or class) as to wages, hours,
benefits and WORKING CONDITIONS!
If you feel your employer is not properly applying the collective
bargaining then the grievance procedure in the collective bargaining
procedure is the proper channel to follow.
Whether or not a union is required to progress an employees grievance
to arbitration is usually a matter of union discretion. When a
grievance is progressed to arbitration by the parties and the grievant
wishes to appeal the arbitrators decision it is done through the
courts. Arbitration results are usually final and binding under the RLA
BUT a grievant has 2 years from the ruling to seek a set-aside. Discuss
your options with an attorney.
If you are a railroad employee and have properly filed a grievance with
your union and are not satisfied with the results of the grievance
procedure you may consider filing a grievance as an "INDIVIDUAL" with
the National Railroad Adjustment Board(NRAB).
Filing as an individual means that you wish to pursue your grievance
with the NRAB WITHOUT the assistance or support of your union.
You can contact the NRAB directly at 312-751-4688

If you believe that your employer is in violation of a law of the
United states you can consult with a private attorney or contact the
government agency that has jurisdiction over such matters. 

It is strongly advised that all railroad employees take the time to sit
down and read their "WEINGARTEN RIGHTS"!

Now, pay close attention to this one!
UNFAIR LABOR PRACTICES-Section 8(a)2 of the NLRA makes employer
"domination" of a labor organization an unfair labor practice
Dominate mean to rule, control or SWAY! The post made by EX LC had an
issue with a supervisor who told employees to do as they were told even

UNREPORTED. 
An employer that commits an unfair labor practice must "cease and
desist" from unlawful conduct and post a notice in the workplace
promising not to repeat the conduct.

There is no doubt that this post will raise a red flag with railroad
management. This website is viewed daily by CSX and its legal staff.
The labor relations department will not appreciate this kind of
information circulated either. It encourages members to read and better
arm themselves with information to put up a good fight. There is nothing
more powerful than well educated and readily armed union members.

In response to the letter sent out by Cindy Sanborn in regards to FMLA,
what a joke that CSX is blaming poor performance on FMLA. True that
there are those who misuses it but this CAPS system makes for everyone
to go out and acquire it..thats on you Ms. Sanborn. Also I love that
Ms. Sanborn is so concerned that i might possibly be working too much.
Well this is true I am working too much but that is not because of FMLA
it is because the boards are trimmed down to thinly to meet the demands
of the number of trains. Basically CSX is padding the numbers trying to
keep investors happy but now service is at an all time low. I love how
CSX blames their poor performance on T/E crews instead of stepping up
to the plate and admitting that their poor management practices are to
blame..but this is CSX

I don't remember a "no strike" agreement, unless it was for a very
specific issue, but the Supreme Court basically decided rail unions
cannot strike except for "major disputes" around that period. Of
course in the court's eyes there is almost nothing that rises to a
"major dispute" plus rail unions have to go through a myriad of steps
before they can get to the "self help" (strike) stage.

Use your head & some common sense - go online, read\review & try to
understand the Railway Labor Act.    RR cos. know all about it.   

Rail service interruption which could idle businesses & thousands of
other workers will not be tolerated very long. 

The Govt. \ Federal Courts have a lot of power.  Long story short:
A strike by RRers is not at all an easy thing to do, or even try.

If you are receiving correspondences from anyone in labor relations,
payroll or any other department that your pay is not being issued as
submitted because information obtained from the GPS shows otherwise you
need to email Tim_ healey@csx.com. Mr. Healey is the Director of
Locomotive Engineering and oversees the installation of the GPS on all
locomotives. If there is a problem with the use of the GPS then he
should be notified immediately. This is an issue that should not be
taken lightly. Obtaining proper information from the GPS is a MUST and
any problems that are occurring must be addressed and resolved
immediately! Movement of all trains on the system must be documented
accurately. There is no room for error on this matter. The safe way is
the right way. Report any problems immediately. Your participation will

AVON CREWS

LISTEN UP!!!  When you are called to work on a WORK train IT IS NOT
REVENUE SERVICE. You are to be issued a ticket under kind of service 9.
CMC had been issuing these tickets as through freight under kind of
service 2. They are doing this because they are in violation of article
47 in regards to work trains. If they call a work train at least 4 times
in a week they are supposed to put the job up for bid on the electronic
bid system. The company does not want to do this so they are hoping
that putting the tickets under kind of service 2 as through freight
will not draw attention to what is happening. Kind of service 9 is also
a higher rate of pay for a days work. DO NOT TAKE a work train out until
you call cmc and make them change it to a kind of service 9. If they
give you any trouble them you make sure they understand that you know
this is NOT revenue service and it is not through freight If they keep
your ticket under through freight then they are admitting that it is
being considered revenue service and they should be reporting the
service to the IRS for tax purposes.

Shockednot the UNION HAS BEEN STEALING FROM ME FOR YEARS.

Old news in this business. They have been stealing from us for years
and always will. Our unions don't have the moral values like they did
in the old days where they didn't put up with these games they play.
They know exactly what they are doing . They do it to stall paying the
claims and drag it out longer. They know it take the unions for every
to sit down with any negotiator and get things paid because the
company
deliberately stalls on setting up meeting dates to cover all these
claims. They got claims backlogged from 4 years ago. I put in a claim
once for lap back of 48 miles off my assigned route. It was as good as
gold. The thieves came back with an answer like this....Claim denied.
Not valid. Crew was working in yard limits and is not entitled to lap
back on yard jobs.  Not only were we not even near a yard but we were
120 miles away from one. LP job with a straight shot route. NO ONE is
that retarded. Your right. A first grader could look at these claims
and figure it out. The mile post on the claims clearly showed we
weren't in any yard and the kind of service along with the fact it
wasn't a yard ticket should have been enough to come up with
something
better than that. Its out right malicious stealing 
and stalling on labor relations part. Someone needs to find a way to
sue them. A class action suit should be filed! If the public new what
they were doing Im sure a lot of them would back us 100%! Bet you a
million dollars the so called steel workers that are supposed to be
backing the unions wouldn't put up with this shit!

Shockednot

Old news in this business. They have been stealing from us for years
and always will. Our unions don't have the moral values like they did
in the old days where they didn't put up with these games they play.
They know exactly what they are doing . They do it to stall paying the
claims and drag it out longer. They know it take the unions for every
to sit down with any negotiator and get things paid because the company
deliberately stalls on setting up meeting dates to cover all these
claims. They got claims backlogged from 4 years ago. I put in a claim
once for lap back of 48 miles off my assigned route. It was as good as
gold. The thieves came back with an answer like this....Claim denied.
Not valid. Crew was working in yard limits and is not entitled to lap
back on yard jobs.  Not only were we not even near a yard but we were
120 miles away from one. LP job with a straight shot route. NO ONE is
that retarded. Your right. A first grader could look at these claims
and figure it out. The mile post on the claims clearly showed we
weren't in any yard and the kind of service along with the fact it
wasn't a yard ticket should have been enough to come up with something

CREWS!!

You aren't going to believe this but I just printed out my earning
statement and a claim that I put in for being misused on dog catching
services on line of road for pool crews 2 months ago was just denied.
It had been in research the whole time. Hold on to your hats cause your
going to love this one!

The answer they gave was not only irrelevant but was so far out in left
field my LC wont even be able to figure out where they pulled this one
out from. Its not even in the same claim code category.

I would love to give you the details but if I do it wouldn't take them
long to figure out who posted this. It is so frickin bad that Im
thinking of seeing a labor law lawyer about this. A first grader could
read what was wrote in the original claim and see that their answer was
nothing but joke! I bet they didn't even read the thing. They just
grabbed it off their stack of claims and just threw some bogus ass
answer out there  just the get it out of the way.
Our unions better get off their butts and start doing something to
clean house. CSX labor relations should be an embarrassing joke to
stockholder and anyone who invest in the company! Never have I seen
such and inept group of people in my life! Who the hell is paying for
these idiots to review and answer our claims. It sure the hell better
not be any of my money that Im investing in this outfit! I want it all
back to pay someone to come in and clean house!

Attention all crews

The new format for reporting your time slips does not allow an easy
option to print a copy of your tickets like the previous set up did. If
you want a copy you must use the tool setting in the upper right hand
corner of the screen. Select tools then print. Select print preview. A
copy of the screen will appear. Select the printer icon in upper left
corner.  Select the HP printer option. Click on it twice. You will then
see an option to locate a printer for you. Select this option and it
will list your local printers. You need the model of the printer and
it's IP address. You can find this on a sticker on the printer. Scroll
through the list of the printer models you have and you should find one
with a matching IP address. Select this printer then select print.
Do not waste your time calling the payroll department to request a copy
of your ticket.  They will tell you they can not help you with obtaining
a copy and you will have to contact your local union rep.to get one for
you. You have a right to have a copy of your pay tickets. If you need a
copy for legal reasons or for tax purposes and don't know how to print
one you can call a labor law lawyer for advice on your legal right in
obtaining one.

Recently, UP [agreement] employees (LA Service Unit) voted on a "No

Safety Officer [Doerr] and the transportation unions.

Fritz and Scott: coordinates with the Regional VP'S and local union
officers to make every effort in undermining the Collective Bargaining
Agreement (CBA)...by disposing of claims, targeting injured employees
with rule violations and compensating union officers who rubber stamps
investigations and or claims denials. UP IS THE ONLY MAJOR CARRIER THAT
HAS NOT SETTLED FRA FEDERAL REST CLAIMS. THE UNION OFFICERS ARE PAID!
WHY?

C SCOTT...Tademy v UPRR...Encouraged employees to harass a lone fellow
employee and got promoted during the process. Read the 'legal'
transcript!

Doerr: Left a trail of blood of concealed injury claims and awarded the
union officers (promised post employment consultant contracts) during
the process.
When forty (40) year conductors and engineers walks off the job,

I thought I had better pass this event on the everyone here, but mainly
skewed for CSX management, lawyers and bean-counters. I do hope this
goes to the top in CSX management circles. 
Apparently, a few weeks ago, a Union Pacific Los Angeles Division
Engineer, Bill Teele was working the Long Pool, LA-Yuma. He was called
on duty at Yuma for his return trip home on the UP’s hot Z-Train. This
is basically the old Southern Pacific’s “Blue Streak Merchandise” or
“BSMFF.” Now understand, this is the flag-ship of the UPRR. After the
train pulls into Yuma, if you’re not moving within 5 minutes, the
dispatcher is on the radio calling the engineer. This “Z” is max
freight train speed, 70mph on the Yuma Subdivision.  Anyway, upon
arriving at Beaumont, California, 2:30am, about 100 miles short of Los
Angeles, Eng. Teele stops his Z-Train, clearing all road crossings,
calls the UP Dispatcher and informs him that he is leaving the train
with the conductor and basically retiring on the spot. No pun intended
there. I guess he felt, he had been harassed too much over his railroad
years. This was his pay-back to the Union Pacific. I don’t think this
could happen on the CSX. Because, are there any CSX trains that move
over 50mph with more than 2 units on the line? They would just let it
sit and call a dog catch/patch crew, probably the next day. It is said,
this stunt, by Eng. Teele, cost the UP $200,000. That’s a little hard to
believe, but maybe. Now, if I was a top CSX official, I wouldn’t worry
too much about this happening on your railroad. You need to worry more
about some operating (or other) employee going “Postal.” Do I need to
translate to you CSX lawyers what “Going Postal” means? I can assure
you, CSX Management, you treat your people much worse than Union
Pacific ever has.

with record heat, high humidity and dew points in the 70s on csx
northern region, csx terminal managers and train masters thinks its ok
to keep crews working 4 to 5 plus straight hours outside without a
break. even thought this quarters safety video is about working in the
heat outside safely. all trainmasters who do this ought to be ashamed
of themselves who put productivity and car counts over employee safety
and wellbeing. unfortunately this practice will continue until some one
has to got to the hospital with heat exhaustion or die from heat stroke
and I hope then someone sues the shit ought of this shit hole company.
I don't know how you southern boys do it working in this oppressive
heat, but I got a lot more respect for yous now.

CREWS

Time to figure out what is bothering the company man sooooo much.
Lets see now.... I believe it all started around July 9th when our so
called MR. Pines showed up to distract everyone. He began by making
pokes at someone posting on the safety site with unrelated safety
topics.  At that time the subjects at hand were as follows:

1: Labor relations denial of claims due to totally screwed up
information gathered from the company GPS
2: Serious conduct unbecoming of company officials and the cover up of
a banner test going seriously wrong.
3: Blackmail of arbitrators
4: Links being posted to retrieve PLB awards
5: Intimidation and harassment in the work place.

We are pretty sure he was the one who posted the comment:  I hate this
site. I love csx.  He did manage to draw L&N into his little web if
deceit. For some reason he always does. Starting to look like they
might be working together. How could someone fall for his stupidity so
many times????

The real Mr. Pines is out of commission!  We all hope to god this
character is not an offspring from Mr. Pines. God knows we don't need
a repeat of the years of ranting and raving from the other mentally
lost soul!

Mr. Pines imposter. 
We all are quite aware of the horrific train wreck that occurred in
Texas. There is no need for a heated discussion on this website about
it. You are obviously not a true railroader!!!!!
If you were, you would understand the pain and grief that all
railroaders feel for another who has lost their life. We ALL FEEL THE
PAIN AND SUFFERING THE FAMILIES ARE GOING THROUGH. You of course could
not even begin to feel what we do. It hits all of un in our guts when
we begin to imagine what they were going through in the last minutes of
their life. We have all had that one moment when we thought that our
train may not get stopped or slowed down at a red signal or for a slow
order. We have all felt that moment when we are approaching a stop for
a work authority and we cant get ahold of the forman in charge. Its
something in the pit of our stomachs you could never understand. NO ONE
GOES OUT THEIR TO GET KILLED! Unfortunately no one will ever know the
truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth because the witnesses
aren't here to tell their side. GOD REST THEIR SOULS!
Show some respect or move on to another foamer site.

I don't know what an EOT will cost CSX.  But when the conductor has to
walk back and inspect the train, then send out recrews in a PTI Van for
all of the trains behind me that are backed up...., I would guess that
all of the EOTs CSX owns  would still cost less than what Payroll and
Labor Relations steals from everyone combined, each and every payday.

       everything you said is correct except the water. Complying with
federal, state, and company safety and operating rules may slow you
down slightly, but it is required. Stealing the water, ream of paper,
etc. is just foolish, since that gives them a clear cut reason to fire
you for being the bad guy, an excuse for the union to abandon you, and
you gain some really bad water, extra cheap paper, etc. Go to dollar
tree and get your dollar water, toilet tissue, etc. It's cheaper,
better, and has a different name on it, so if they glance at your
vehicle they will NOT see company property but rather wal-mart brand or
similar. You might even save a receipt or two. You REALLY don't want to
be signing a statement at hearing apologizing for YOUR unethical
behaviour, and begging for another chance.If you note, the RR is very
stingy on safety related items such as safety glasses, lanterns, etc.
which you have to get there.

me,

CSX doesn't know ethics, unless its to their benefit of course.

May I suggest, when CSX steals from you, you follow the advice I was
given by an old HOGGER.

I'm on a local that gets overtime after 8 hours.  I could get on the
phone, and sweet talk the dispatchers into moving my train, or I could
let the new conductor do what he does best.  Sit their with the radio
mike in his hand looking lost and confused.  My 8 hour local looks like
it may dog.  Oh darn.  Call another crew out.  We didn't hit our
windows, and I have an extra 4 or 5 hours of overtime in my pocket. 
Plus there's one less rested crew available.

I'm on an engine, and it has a defect that I'd normally over look and
take the train anyway.   But this time, being a SAFE employee, I notify
everyone and their brother that there's a problem with the engine. 
Someone needs to come out here and look at it before I can move this
train.  SAFETY FIRST.  How much is it going to cost that train master
in bonus money when yet another train doesn't hit its departure
window?  How much is it going to cost the terminal to send everyone out
to look at this defect and fix the problem I noticed when I did my
inspection?  Both time and money????? Maybe even another engine and a
recrew when we don't make it to the other end, plus the cost of a PTI
van to pick us up and drop the other crew off?

Now you can't do things like this all the time, but you can run a few
miles an hour slower when you're on OT.  You can take home a case of
water for your friends and family to drink every time you leave work,
and what person doesn't need an extra first aid kit or two with a CSX
logo on them?   Its those little things that add up over time, like the
ten dollars here or the hundred dollars there that CSX, Payroll and
Labor Relations keep stealing from my check. I'm only as ethical as
the company I work for.

Funny how CSX portrays themselves as a ethical company but yet CSX Labor
Relations won't honor the agreement. That's ok, I wonder how much it
cost to fix some bad flat spots on a locomotive.  They would be money
ahead to just pay the damned valid claims.

CREW MANAGER!!!

YES! YOU! CREW MANAGER!   What the hell have you been doing since 1830
pm tonight????


I just called your crew callers for over 2 stinking hours trying to get
through.  I drove 18 miles in my car home and let the phone ring. I
tried to recall several times hoping it might go to a different desk
and it never did.  I let the phone ring 175 times on the last call.  I
have proof of all of this. It is real easy to time how many seconds it
is between rings. Im going to have my phone records printed out to show
how many hours I tried to get through and how long I was on the phone
each time I called.  I can prove how many rings were on my phone with
each call.  What the hell is wrong with you that you cant see whats
going on!!!

I heard a rumor yesterday that one of your crew callers told a guy that
it they don't want to answer the phone they transfer the call to
another desk where no one is sitting at the time.
You better pray to god that we cant prove this because not only is that
crew caller going to be walked out the front door but you can just take
your butt with them.

175 rings.....175 rings...... 18 miles of driving in a car and
listening to the phone ring and no one answer.
Whats wrong with your people down there. If their medication off? Are
you giving them tainted water to drink? YOU HAVE NO EXCUSES FOR NOT
PAYING MORE ATTENTION TO YOUR CREWCALLERS. IT DOESNT TAKE 2 HOURS TO
PICK UP A PHONE. OH, I FORGOT, YOUR PEOPLE NEVER PICKED IT UP! I don't
believe for one minute that Michael Ward knows what the hell is going on
down there but he is going too!  GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER!

ALL ENGINEERS

The Blet is very well aware of what the carrier is doing in reference
to abusing the SSA agreement and not honoring the proper pay for
working Relief/recrew service for outlawed road/pool trains. The
agreement was written in very understandable English and the Letters of
interpretation are clear cut.

We will make this short and to the point without a lot of extra
language added.
If you are called to relieve an hours of service pool crew off the
engineers extra board that IS NOT a yard board you are entitled to 130
miles pay. End of discussion. Printed very clearly. If you work over 8
hours you are entitled to another ticket and a ticket for every train
after that.

If you are called to relieve local/switcher jobs then can issue a J-JOB
ticket. This should be kind of service 4 with 100 miles. Anything over 8
hours should be paid as overtime.

YOU ARE NOT TO BE CALLED OFF THE EXTRA BOARD AS AN EXTRA ROAD SWITCHER
(J-JOB) IF THERE ARE NO SWITCHER JOBS ASSIGNED TO WORK ON THE
ADVERTISED TERRITORY THAT YOU ARE DEADHEADING ON TO GO RELIEVE
ROAD/POOL CREWS AND DRAG TRIANS IN. YOU ARE TO BE ISSUED A Q-K-L ETC..
TICKET FOR THAT TRAIN AND IT SHOULD REFLECT THAT IT IS A RECREW.
EXAMPLE WOULD BE RELIEVING A POOL CREW WORKING A Q123. THE TICKET
SHOULD BE ISSUED AS A Q123R WITH A KIND OF SERVICE 2 AND 130 MILES
MINIMUM.

It has been brought to the unions attention that Labor relations has
come up with a new tactic to block proper payment of these tickets and
create more claims that will eventually flood the general chairman's
office to the roof.  These tactics create stress and are usually done
to force the unions into negotiating anything they can with the carrier
to create some kind of relief from the overwhelming overload of
paperwork.

Several people have filed complaints that they have been calling the
chief on duty after they have worked 8 hours improperly on a J ticket
and demanding they be given their second ticket that is rightfully due
them by the SSA Agreement(ARTICLE 68)before they go back out and drag
in a line of road pool crew. The chief has been telling them they cant
issue a proper ticket(ex.Q123R) but they will give them another J
ticket. 
Labor relations is denying the second ticket with the explanation that
is combined service and you are only entitled to one ticket.

Now, here comes the kicker.  When they take the second ticket back LOOK
VERY CLOSELY AT THE MILES THEY ARE PAYING YOU! They have been paying the
130 miles that you rightfully have coming to you. They are admitting
that you should be getting a minimum of 130 miles per the SSA. However
you are still not getting your second ticket.
Now, this is just part of the scheme.  Several crews worked 12 hours
and of course outlawed dragging trains in. These crews were NOT PAID
the 4 hours of overtime either even though they were on the wrongfully
issued J-ticket.
So what did they do you ask??? They paid the proper miles to fool the
crews when they looked at their earning statement. Most pointed it out
later that they did get the right miles but got cheated out of the
second ticket. 
Second unethical action that was taken was the fact that they knew they
put the crew on a J (local switcher ticket) in order to pay less miles
and a lower kind of service. They have been arguing that they have the
right to do so. Well, if they knew they had them on a switcher ticket
why did they not pay the 4 hours of overtime that was due the crew.
They are splitting the tickets down the middle. Paying the proper
miles, denying the second ticket and not paying the overtime over 8
hours.  OUTRIGHT NASTY UNDERHANDED TACTICS.  DO NOT...WE REPEAT...DO
NOT LET THIS GO. NOTIFY YOUR LC IMMEDIATELY AND IF UNABLE TO REACH HIM
CALL THE GENERAL CHAIRMANS OFFICE. THIS IS A SERIOUS ISSUE. GET THE
PAPERWORK TURNED IN SO IT CAN BE FILED WITH YOUR UNIONS LAW GROUP. TIME
IS OF THE MOST IMPORTANCE!!!

Been working for CSX for +10yrs and soon I will be slapping down my
