CSX-Sucks!

Harassment and Discrimination Racial Sexual Religious

(Fill in the blank)
All employees are treated             .

    This area of the site will be an open forum for CSX employees to discuss all forms of harassment and discrimination on the job. As many of us have seen, the company's first priority is the company, not the rights of it's workers.

    Coming soon... Audio Files of real employees being harassed and discriminated against.



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.

WARNING


Hit squad is running around yards with radar guns. Don't know if they
got them from CSX police or if they have them helping them. Just wrote
some people up for speeding.  Bet they charge them with conduct
unbecoming and that will be a major.  Everything they can charge you
with can be trumped up to a major with the new discipline policy.

I hope they take them to court and demand that they show when the last
time their little radar guns were calibrated and registered to be
correct.   The next time anyone see's a supervisor blow a stop sign in
the yard or speed to beat a train or hump cut out of the yard I hope to
god they get them on video and make a citizens arrest!

Fellow workers


Talked to my LC and he had no answers on what is going on with our
agreement talks and about our pay.  Said they are talking and are
supposedly not agreeing on some of the issues the company wants to
change like medical cost and pay raises. Still want to talk about one
man crews. rumors are flying that HH wants one big super pool at all
terminals. No more running rosters. Everyone is qualified on everything
and seniority isn't good for anything but vacation day. That's going
to go over real good with guys who have 20 years or more and haven't
worked anything but one pool for the last 10. Have over 200 people who
aren't qualified on everything and they say they will give each person
one ride on each job. BULLSHIT! One trip does not make a person
qualified. Just more FRA violations to file.  What good is it to have
years and years of seniority to lose it to someone who has a year or
less. Freight is still backed up our here and industries are not being
serviced. They are bringing in new TM's every week to replace the ones
HH had fired or forced out.  That was a slap in the face to the good
TM's we already had and new the terminals.  Its been to quiet. There
has to be something going down and the Unions and the reps are talking.
What the hell are we paying union dues for? Thought it was for a
contract. They are working for us. taking our money to provide us a
service. What is going on? They better start talking to the people who
are paying them!

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

to there home terminals or even regionally. No fucking reason to go to

WRONG!  Yardmasters are not supervisors. They are administrators for
the Trainmasters. Yes, they issue instructions on movements in the
yards but they are not real line staff supervisors. Nor are
dispatchers. They do not have the power to discipline crews or order
them to violate the rules. They must report problems to upper
management such as the DTO. Sorry if it sounds degrading but the fact
is union contract employees are not real supervisors in the legal sense
of management verses union employees. Apparently you haven't been
around when a big headed yardmaster has instructed a crew to do
something that is in total violation of the rules or FRA law and the
crew demanded a "Supervisor" to step forward and issue the order.
Most yardmasters have sense enough not to go that far but some have and
some still will. The trainmaster if fully responsible for the actions of
the yardmaster and they know it. The yardmaster may go down if he does
something totally unsafe or orders someone to do something that goes
all to hell, but the TM on duty is still his supervisor and is held
accountable as well. The difference is the yardmaster has a union to
back him and fight for his job and the Trainmaster does not.

The big question now is how in the hell can a yardmaster be on special
assignment working out in the field helping out the Trainmasters. Just
what the hell are they doing. They cant discipline or do observation
testing of union contract employees. They may be able to run crews
around that need rides or act as clerks(that were all fired) but they
cant do anything in a "real" supervisory manner. No one is fooled.
Many know not to trust them in the field. One has already been seen
following workers around watching their every move. And what for???? 
They belong in the yardmaster seat doing yardmaster duties as covered
by their union agreement and working with their fellow union contract
employees. None of this started until HH showed up. If this isn't and
attempt to union bust then what the hell is! Other railroads have
yardmasters who are not covered by union contracts and they are
supervisors. Maybe the yardmasters don't see what might be coming. If
they lose their union status then let them play supervisor all they
want. But until then need to keep their loyalty checked at the right
door.

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.

 You idiots who post your stupid crap can count your jobs goodbye. Are
you so stupid you can't see whats going on around you. They cut the
hell out of tm jobs then turned around and started replacing them. Now
if you haven't noticed they are taking yardmasters who have sucked
butt and are putting them on special assignments. They can't
discipline anyone. They are not supervisors. All they can do is run
crews around and assist the tm's including the hit squad teams. Some
have been running to the Tm's and snitching crews out on stupid petty
crap. One of them from Avon put a God awful nasty post on another rr
sight calling all the crews 5th grade level idiots. Even though this
person went through the same school and hired just like everyone else
he thinks he can walk on water and is singing the praises of PSR and
agrees with HH that the meltdown is the crews fault.

You better start watching your backs. These YM are trying to secure a
position as soon as they can and they will stab you in the back.  Do
everyone a favor and stop posting your stupid crap and post information
that can do the crews some good. Your being manipulated and your to
stupid to see it!

he worms his way into TM status.  Pay attention!

RRJim 

You are correct. The company does monitor this site everyday. The
public safety director and their PR team need to know if anything is
being posted that would violate privileged information or something is
being leaked that could cause major internal disruption. Posters need
to remember that the FRA view this site daily as well as customers,
other class I railroads and the public. 
If you post information make it factual. Make sure you can prove what
you post if you are revealing information that is contradictory to what
the company is putting out there. If your going to whistle blow it is
best not to do it on this site. The arbitrators have a history of not
showing any sympathy to those charged for using this type of media if
they can prove it was you. That usually only happens if you use your
name.  Just make sure you have your facts and can stand behind them. 
There was a warning added in the new discipline policy in regards to
using social media.. It is listed under the Major category of offenses.
However the company is well aware it is within your legal rights to do
so and has a disclaimer added to their pod programs explaining your
rights. Im sure it can be produced if anyone needs it.

SOCIAL MEDIA:

Nothing in the social media guidelines or social media policy is
intended to interfere with your rights under the Railway Labor Act or
the National Labor Relations Act including criticism of CSX's labor
policies, treatment of employees and terms and conditions of
employment.
Some managers may argue that this statement is only intended to protect
your legal rights as a Union member who is engaging in organizing
activities, campaigning or union disputes. TRY AGAIN!  Just about every
decision the company makes affects the Union agreements or the treatment
of employees in one shape or form.

it is not true that Harrison wants everyone to violate rules, just the

be a railroader. Harrison is trying to change the culture and based on
what I read here, he has a long way to go. eventually he will get at

If anyone is told to violate a rule first thing is to get a witness

instructed don't be insubordinate. That's a heavy charge. Most likely
will get the job back but when? That could take up to a year or longer.
When I was confronted with this situation I would have the TM sign off

CSX converted seven of its dozen hump yards to flat-switching facilities

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.

visually inspect both sides of the cars your adding to a train before
you do a roll by inspection when doing a class I brake test. That's
not the way we are reading it in our rules or in the FRA code of
regulations. They are claiming the Fed's said it was ok. You can't do
a good inspection of each car for defects when it's going bye you at 10
mph on the roll bye.  Did they change the laws or not? We think TM's
are being threatened to rush and are skipping one side to save time.

All crews 
Your lunch time begins when you enter your crew building. IT DOES NOT
START WHEN YOU ARE TOLD TO GO TO LUNCH.  Securing the equipment and
walking to your lunch/crew room is not and has never been considered
adequate time for your meal period. 20 minute lunches are short enough
and a major joke to begin with. We would all be better off taking 30
minutes unpaid than having them abuse the crews and make them choke
down their meals because they are paid. You may not agree but you would
have a better chance of getting a humanly fair lunch period. When you
are given a short lunch fill out the complaint forms and file for a no
lunch. Put in the comment section just how long you had and who forced
you to return to work with a inadequate lunch period. Of course they
will deny it but keep the claims coming. We need as many filed as we

HhasaTP  

You have a lot to learn. How dare you come on this site and insinuate
that all railroaders are stupid and do not know how to use proper
grammar. If you were a true railroader you would not have to be told
how stupid you have made yourself look. Second,young man, why would
anyone (watchdog) post any information about a policy created by the
company that clearly shows how it can be manipulated to be used against
the employees in a negative and manipulative manner. No one in
Jacksonville would do this unless they were disgruntled with the
company or they wanted the truth about policies that can entrap an
employee revealed. You say you read this site everyday and look for
these HQ posers and determine who you feel is not legitimate and expose
them. Sorry but you have been totally wrong on some of your targets. If
you have the time to monitor the site every day then you must not be a
working railroader. Our guess is you are a Csx mole or a furloughed
conductor. Since your server is out of Nashville TN it's a safe guess
you were in the group cut back there and have not been called back. You
are not helping other railroaders with any of your dick Tracy tactics.
Leave the site to the professionals who have been helping the webmaster
and know when to step in. An example would be now! None of us need
another "PINES" on this site. We truly hope you get your job back or
find something more constructive to do.

Attention!!!

When HH made the comment he wanted to "weed out the non believers" he
was not making a joke. It has been reported that several employees were
aggressively approached by appointed managers from the HH regime when
the employee was expressing his opinion on the new roll out of
precision railroading. They were told that their attitude was not
acceptable and they were not needed at CSX. 
These hit squads will be everywhere and they will be listening to your
conversations. Don't expect freedom of speech to cover you when they
pull you out of service. The operating rules are written so you don't
have any freedom of speech. Don't be boisterous, combative,
argumentative, disloyal. These term leave the door wide open for
interpretation and they will use them against you. If you must engage
in a conversation with one of these managers make sure you have a
witness with you and make it very clear that you want permission to
speak freely and off the record. If the manager refuses to let you do
so then disengage and do not have any further conversations with them.
Many may have tape recorders and there is no doubt your name will be on
a watch list at your terminal.  This isn't a joke people. You better
pay close attention to your surroundings and who you are with when
having private personal conversations while you are on CSX property or
on the clock elsewhere.

For those of you in the public who view this site and do not understand
the depth of the Employee behavior policy, below is the exact wording as
printed. Many restrictions are totally acceptable but there are a few
that leave the door wide open for a disgruntled manager to retaliate
when he feels his authority is being questioned or the employee is not
a "Believer".

Employee behavior must be respectful and courteous. Employees must not
be any of the following.
a.dishonest,or
b.insubordinate,or
c.disloyal,or
d.quarrelsome

The following behaviors are prohibited while on duty, on csx property,
or when occupying facilities provided by csx.
a.boisterous, profane or vulgar language, or
b.altercations
c.practical jokes or horseplay, or
d.carelessness, incompetence, or willful neglect of duties, or
e.behavior that endangers life or property

As stated before, many of these rules are totally acceptable but being
"Disloyal" is NOT!  What is disloyal? Deserting ones  allegiance per
Websters dictionary. Speak out against your employer for their
treatment of all employees and now you are being disloyal. You are now
being insubordinate/rebellious/mutinous. If you express your opinions
to loudly then you could be considered boisterous. 
Argue with your employer when he clearly violates your working rights
or is yelling at you then you risk the charge or quarrelsome.

Its pretty obvious that these rules can have a detrimental impact on
your future employment with CSX if you engage in a conversation with
one of the managers from the HH regime. BE SELECTIVE OF YOUR WORDS!
Better yet do not talk to any one of them. If you are approached by one
and you sense a negative attitude from them if you wont have a
conversation with them, immediately let your union representation Know.
There is a good chance your name will end up on a list. It is sad that
it has come to this but it is what you are dealing with. Protect
yourself and be very careful when you open your mouth.

A few things-regarding all the stored locomotives-rode by Hamlet the
other day, was shocked at the locos in storage-way surpasses 2009
recession..by far...looks like Trinity Rail is going to be slammed too;
anyway the locos in storage make no sense at all..seems like you would
have very gradually reduced headcount and locos...I'm struck by the
fact that greedy Paul Hilal at Mantle Ridge can't liquidate any CSX
for 5 years-why the rush???

Second-in Monroe NC today train watching-say a yardman walk out from
the depot to the yard there and when he came back towards the depot he
took off his gloves and slammed them down on the ground as hard as he
could and DID NOT LOOK HAPPY AT ALL...never seen anything like
this....I was up on a hill and he did not see me-sure he thought he was
not seen by any other workers...pure frustration it seemed

Third - a train that passed thru Monroe-had a US Army engine in tow -
made it to Hamlet just about when I did by fast moving car-pretty
impressive-lots of old cars, CR, C&O, Rock Island paint schemes on
cars-wtf??? This on Monday the 3rd of Sept.

Finally, CSX is being destroyed in my opinion...I wish the old pieces
that make up CSX could separate and compete..of course
impossible-competition will improve a property..lets face it CSX is in
liquidation of sorts

I only wish a pox on activist investing and hedge funds..pure evil

No empathy at all..and EHH thinks he's a star-all he is is a glorified
raider  with no empathy at all for his fellow man....I get just about as
worked up about CSX as I do seeing prosperity preachers flying around in
their jets

You need to be a little more specific about which posters you are
accusing of being HH drones and mole out of Jacksonville. So far we
have seen no post on here that haven't said anything that isn't true.
Were you referring to the post that stated Many employees have whale
sized mouth and bug sized balls?  TRUE!  How about the company doing
what needs done to reduce union employees? True!  Be a little more
specific before you point the finger.  None of these post are coming
from Jacksonville servers.  You seem to be pointing a negative finger
at factual statement.  HH will be looking at reducing divisions and
possibly preparing for a merger. CSX is too large and there would be
too much of a monopoly if they were to merge with someone else at this
time. The NS has been buying up their stock and pooling their assets.
Rumors are always flying on a hostile take over. If you can come up
with something more concrete on any of these posters being drones for
HH then we will all be more than happy to front them out as we see them
but so far you haven't. In the meantime the mediators will continue to
watch the servers and where post are coming from.

Wake up people!
Instead of wasting your time and energy posting stupid crap about
posers all of you better start preparing for battle. The post from guys
who have already been through the new nut job CEO harassment and hostile
work enviorment are sending you a message loud and clear. CSX employees
went through this shit already. Post about what went down in 2006 were
as true as it comes but it sounds like HH is sending in a hit squad
that has gotten away with this shit several times. This is going to be
a battle ground. You guys better get your priorities straight and start
watching each others backs. Know where these guys are at all times.
Don't make a move without double checking everything. Try to be where
you have another witness and stick together. Fill out the complaint
forms. Watch all managers. They break rules report them. File ethics
charges.  Everyone knows we can't strike and a sick out ain't going
to happen. The days of hell and watching over your shoulder is coming
back. Total bullshit we have to go through this again. Union already
has numerous forms out for complaints. You don't have them call other
guys at other terminals and get some from them. Fax them to your GC
office too.  Screw them if they get mad.  Fax them to them anyway.
First it was the NS rejects now it's going to be CN. This is going to
be a test between the boys and the men. This ain't Canada. Let's see

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.
Employees & management alike.  Way it is, way it's always been.

All railroaders

Here is something for you to think about. Everyday there are lawsuits
filed by convicts who are claiming their rights are being violated and
they are being treated inhumanly. These are people who have done the
worst of worst crimes and yet they file these cases and win them. There
are numerous bleeding heart groups who defend these criminals and even
pay for their cases.  How can anyone defend someone who has robbed,
raped, mutilated and molested children when they start crying that they
aren't being treated fairly in prison and not defend the railroad
workers of America?   Because they don't know! You get 10 minutes to
eat. Your bathroom breaks are timed? You are yelled at daily and forced
to work faster and unsafely?  Maybe your union representative should
start talking to some of these groups that back the treatment of hard
criminals and find out how they feel about this kind of treatment. How
do they feel about the hard working men/woman in this country being
treated like pack mules and gum on the bottom of managements shoes. 
Just a thought I would throw out there to you. You should be treated
better than convicts. You should be allowed your day in court.

T&E

Its been posted on here what to do if you are denied your lunch break.
Make an issue out of it with the medical department. second I have read
the union agreement and it makes it very clear that they are to take
into consideration the time it takes to secure your equipment and
prepare to eat. The avon yard crews went through this years ago and
when they finally had enough of the abuse they layed down and marked
off sick. The big boys from Jacksonville showed up and when they found
out what was going on the put a stop to it. told the TM's and
yardmasters to allow the crews time to tie down their equipment and get
their meals ready. they had the guy call the tower 2 ym when they walked
in the building. they gave them a reasonable amount of time to tie down
and come in.  This crap is happening again then you better start
bombarding your union reps and filing out forms to send to them. Again
if you need to eat and they don't let you and your told to eat on your
locomotive and you don't have a microwave or any way to warm your food
up and are being forced to eat cold meals all winter long you need to
blast your international.

Rd crews need to start showing up for ride at away from home terminal at
on duty time.  There is no way we can be required to get into company
paid transportation before we are on the clock.  This is one of many
perks we provide the carrier for free.  They want to start rushing us
around then give nothing back.                                         
                                                                        
                                                                        
                    Some dumbass came up with the idea of letting the ym
know if your not in a van or on a train within 15minutes of being on
duty and give a detailed summary of why not. PSR is a sham would be the
correct answer.

The reason for the crew applying 58 hand brakes is it was 178 cars on a

The post by Legal contains some valid points. 


National Rail Contract -- then,  Agreements may differ from General
Committee to General Committee, RR to RR, property to property.

The corporation can make changes - but believe the GCs are supposed to
be at least consulted/informed/warned prior to when changes affect
member's working conditions.   Company\corporation policies are not
contractual agreed to agreements.  

Harrison was quoted he'll "eat the spaghetti" in reference to the
CSX rail network not being the same as the others that were changed.

Advice is to do your job and if necessary learn your job. read someone
put 58 handbrakes on a train and the relief crew operated with half of
them left on. 2 potential reasons for this, not knowing the job or
playing screw around. many of you don't understand this guy. he is
very demanding and knows your job as well as or better than you do. if
the goal is to survive him, be a dedicated railroader. not trying to be
a wiseass here but I survived this guy by doubling up my efforts and I
learned 10x more from him than anyone else. I had the books out of my
grip all the time.never met him and don't care to but he is the real
thing. all other RR CEO's are posing compared to this old head. not
looking to offend anyone but if you want to stay a railroader this is
the time to become one. at best, he'll only be here 4 years. you can
survive that! 
best of luck, a retiree.

UTU/BLET members,


Read your agreements and understand your working CONDITION rights. What
many of you don't understand is that your unions do not have the legal
right to interfere with the corporations rights to restructure.
Furloughing hundreds of employees is not a violation of your
agreements. Cutting jobs is not a violation of your agreement. Closing
yard is not a violation of your agreements. What is a violation is not
notifying your unions that working conditions and rules are going to be
changed so the proper representation can sit down and discuss the
situation and see how best to handle it. Policy rules belong to the
corporation. Collective bargaining belongs to the Unions.

Many of you do not under stand how the unions work and what legal
rights they have in regards to the corporations right. 
A lot of complaints have been posted on this site for some time now
about the lack of service to the customers. To be blunt, this is not
your problem or responsibility. However I commend you on bringing the
reasons for this problem to light. Blaming the crews for the problem
was not only unprofessional but unethical . Your new CEO knows exactly
why this happened and should be ashamed of himself for blaming it on
the workers. Step back before you post and look at your complaint. Is
it a valid complaint because it is a violation of your collective
bargaining rights or is it a personal complaint. 
Being forced to work overtime and called back on your rest day after
day because man power shortage is at an all time high is a complaint
that your unions should be handling under working conditions. Mangers
doing the work of contract employees is a major violation under your
agreement. All things that need to be handled by your unions. Putting
hard workers on the street for the sake of the all mighty dollar is
horrible but that unfortunately is not an illegal move by the carrier
and all the Unions can do is argue the consequences of doing so.
Working without a lunch break is a serious concern. The health and
welfare of the employees  are put in harms way. Working with defective
equipment because no one is around to fix it is something that should
be brought to the attention of OSHA. Being intimidated to move freight
with defects and unsafe conditions warrants FRA action. There are
numerous things that are affected when the work force is down sized.
Learn the difference between what is a bargaining agreement violation
and what is a violation of state or federal law. The more you
understand both the better armed you will be to direct your complaints
to the proper departments. Do not forget that this site is viewed
everyday by numerous railroads, government agencies, lawyers, customers
and public agencies. Your messages are not going to be taken seriously
by those who understand how bargaining agreements work or the
corporations rights to restructure. Make valid post. Bring issues to
light that are unsafe and put employees and the public in harms way. Be
honest. Most of all be respectful. It makes you the better person.

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!

Don't listen to the idiots about wild cat strikes. Go ahead and strike
if you think it will do you any good. Fact is the outcome wont be any
different than when the air traffic controlers and pilots decided to do
so. Fact is by federal law you cant.  Use your damn heads and think of
why you cant. Do you even bother to read why. Stopping the movement of
U.S. commerce freight is detrimental to everyone in this country. You
are no better than HH when you say this stupid shit. Customers are
hurting now. You think striking is going to help them any more. USE
YOUR HEADS. Think outside of the box. You have a union no matter how
bad you think they are. Grow balls and make them get involved. What the
hell do you think the media is for. Force your unions to act.

Try using your imagination at work.  Can any of you think outside of
the box? Are you not educated enough to figure things out? 

I will give you one example of thinking outside of the box. 
Rumors are flying that management is so scared of HH now because the
work isn't getting done and the industries aren't getting switched
that they are forcing crews to work through their lunches.
Does anyone not have diabetes? How About hypoglycemia? How about high
blood pressure?  You get the idea. They wont let you stop and eat and
you get weak or dizzy you tell them you need to eat!  If they wont let
you take your break for lunch file your claim then CALL THE CSX MEDICAL
DEPARTMENT! Tell them what happened and get a paper trail started. Get
it on record that the company is forcing people to work through their
lunch breaks and are creating a dangerous environment for people who
need to eat a meal at lunch or dinner time. You don't need the unions
to get things started. You just need to use your heads and think a
little harder. I know of many people who have won claims without filing
one piece of paper with their union reps because they know what stones
to roll over and what needs to be done to make things go away. Start
using your heads. Start thinking of your human rights. Start thinking
of state a federal laws. They don't call it whistleblowing for
nothing!

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.

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.

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!

If you cannot attend the STB hearing, then there are a couple of things
you can do.  Send letters/emails to the STB and FRA about unsafe
conditions, harassment and intimidation.  The second thing is to have
your union reps there to represent your interestss if you are worried
about retaliation for attending (even though it is a public hearing) .
However, I don't think the purpose of the meeting is employee safety
or working conditions. 

 Unfortunately the main objective of the meeting is to make CSX get
trains moving and EHH will trot out his new metrics to  show how
amazing he is.  Hopefully there will be customers there to tell a
different story.. Fake metrics do not equal service to customers .

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
bit counts.

Conductor 1-10

This is a question for your LC. Have you not called and asked him? If
you cant get an answer then call the General chairmans office everyday
if you have to until you get an answer.  If you are eligible for
railroad unemployment after you haven't worked for a week demand they
furlough you and then apply for it.  Yeah, it doesn't pay squat but
its more than sitting homeout with a dime while they play games. I have
seen them starve men out. they sit by the phone waiting for calls or
watch the boards everyday hoping to grab a crumb when they can just to
get bumped every time they go to work.  Its a game. You need entries in
your employee history that you are furloughed. They will want proof.
Check with state unemployment as well if you are just working part
time. Yes you can apply for it even if you are working for CSX.  Don't
remember how many hours is considered part time.  Some guys just go to
where they can hold work and stick it out at a cheap cut rate hotel. If
you can find someone else to go with you then do it and split the cost. 
the family suffers but you got to do what you got to do.    Maybe that
oxygen breathing old man will be gone soon and things will get back to
business.

I have a winning strategy for old greedy Eugene and Paul....store ALL of
the locomotives and lay off 100% of the employees. This would result in
a MASSIVE cost reduction thus major reduction in operating ratio and
the stock would skyrocket.

I think I'll call EHH now we can suck on some oxygen, pop blood clot
pills over some scotch and get this implemented, so simple I can't
believe he hadn't already though of this. If there are any ill effects
we can blame them on the employees and customers greatly exaggerating
things.

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!

If the below is true, all of us will be at step 1 in the non major
category of IDPAP, and can be terminated for a second "offense" for
same rule in three years.  This way any t&e can be fired at any time
for the most minor of things, excerpt from southern region:

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

 shutting proven hump yards down, Ripping up tracks, selling off

read the post of "busy otr driver, thanks to csx". apparently ups has
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.

In the end, either you're on board or out finding another job. Been
around Harrison for decades and he will not be deterred. It is correct,
it is not only about the money. Like anyone, he'll take what he can get
but it is all about the railroad. The Hunter camps will educate
management on all aspects of railroading and that is always needed on
any railroad. I know what I would do if I was there, head down and be
part of the solution and not the problem. I just never wanted to lose

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.

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.

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.

Smarter than you

Open your buttocks wide and take your foot out!   There are numerous
anonymous complaints made to the STB that YOU HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE OF AND
WOULDNT BE ABLE TO HAVE ACCESS TO! So before you spout off any more
know it all comments try doing your own research.


As for the idiot who said the price of stock jumped 20.00 bucks when
the rumors that the black knight was coming on board, you too are
uneducated and know nothing on how the stock markets play out. Its as
old as the hills how the "counting your chickens before they hatch"
theory works.  Its over inflated. Santa claus is coming!  Then you open
the big shinny box and it wasn't what you thought you were getting.
Everyone knows that rumors and fantasy will always start a feeding
frenzy and can cause stock to rise when it shouldn't. Smart investors
play for the long haul. I wouldn't buy a dime of CSX stock until I
were you until HH shows he is heading the company in the right
direction and he puts the millions he has where his mouth is.


To the other idiot who just posted the praises of trump.....call his
ass and tell him to get everyone their jobs back! 

Car inspectors
CFR 215.7   Prohibited acts. Go on line and read the federal safety
standards for railroad freight cars. Numerous people can be fined and
charged for violations of this regulation. Willful violations and
grossly negligent violations or a pattern of repeated violations can be
charged against someone up to the amount of $109,819 per violation. Each
day a violation continues shall constitute a separate offense.  
ABSOLUTLEY NO ONE CAN INSPECT A CAR IN 30 SECONDS AND DO IT PROPERLY BY
FRA STANDARDS.

THIS IS NOT CANADA. I don't give a shit who HH thinks he is or how he
did his crap elsewhere. Welcome to the U.S.A where we have the right to
follow federal law and whistleblow if we are forced to do otherwise!

You have any idea what's going on,

The stock holders are happier than a pig in shit, the customers maybe
not so much, and the employee's only want to stir up trouble.  EHH
isn't going anywhere so you might as well quit crying about him and
get on board.  It's hilarious to read the comment's about getting
blamed for "Employee Pushback"  and yet that's what every one is
preaching.  Your whining and moaning and trying to show that you
actually care whether a customer gets their car's is comical at best. 
If you knew what was good for you, you would be trying your best to get
the work done and not hoping that this new system fails.  It only shows
that your not on board with seeing that the customers are served. 
Somehow you guys seem to think that if you continue to "push back"
you'll have accomplished something other than to show that you are a
failure and blame it on someone who doesn't know what they are doing. 
Switching cars and serving the customers isn't rocket science and it's
a reflection on you.  Everyone knows that EHH is no dummy and that's
why the stock went up 20.00 a share just on speculation that he was
coming.  Think about that, stock almost doubled just on speculation,
and once he gets rid of all you guy's that don't want to play, it
will continue to rise...........

Some of the crap you guy's post is ridiculous.  It's no wonder you
aren't taken serious, so uniformed and "fake" stories posted on this
site.  Do some research and you'll see that the only major complaints
to the STB are from a few coal companies.  Most have been resolved and
the others are being taken care of now that some employees who are
"pushing back" have been taken care of as well.  Quit fooling
yourself, things have changed and won't go back to the way it was. 
Get over it.  Some how the major media got wind of your complaint's
and reported on it and for this i commend you, really amazing that the
media would report news based on less than 1% of employee's whining. 
Reminds me of the fake news bashing "President Trump", just goes to
show you it's all about headlines and not about reality.  To the 20 or
30 nut jobs that think they represent the operations of this company, I
hope your identity remains protected, there could be huge fines imposed
for your mis-representations of what's going on.  You really think your
un-educated ass has any idea of the big picture and where this company
is headed.  Don't you realize the stock is up more than 25.00 a share
from where it was prior to EHH coming on board and that that's what
it's all about.  It doesn't matter that there are a few hundred
disgruntled employees and a couple of customers that aren't happy, the
stock holders are making money.  It's so funny to read your ridiculous
post about your yard's or hump's closing and how you think that's
going to be the reason CSX is going to go out of business or that the
"Board" is going to demand EHH step down.  He's making money and
that's what it's all about.  And for the rest of you idiot's that
want to blame this on TRUMP, it's a free market and company's are in
business to make money, not to provide employment.  If you owned a
business that would be your goal too, so quit your whining, pull your
big boy panties up and do your job or quit and open your own business,
then we'll see how much you care about providing for everyone else.

A few months ago they sent one of our trainmasters to Avon, then we got

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

The customers know that their freight is sitting out on sidings. They
are well aware that Harrisons knows this shit. He is no better than a
worthless politician telling bullshit stories out of both sides of his
mouth. Let me tell you from experience that the worst thing for any
company is BAD PUBLICITY!  There is a area on this site to post
pictures. Post the date but leave the time stamp off of it.  Take a few
pictures of the cars sitting out in the sidings. Send in a couple that
have been sitting out there for over a week.  I have seem 3 loaded auto
rack cars that have been sitting in the same siding for 4 days now.  I
have seen cars moved from one siding to the next and then moved back
again. He knows this is going on. This a game they play to make it look
like the freight is not sitting but is being moved to its destination. 
People are not stupid. Harrison just likes to patronize people.  Find
out who these cars are supposed to be shipped to.  Call them.  Tell
them where their freight its.  Don't be an idiot and give them any
info to figure out who your are.  Many trains pass these sidings. They
cant pin point it on anyone without a time stamp on the photo.  

You want to put a stop to his lies and deception then put the truth out
there on the front street! Customers have the right to know the truth
the whole truth and nothing but the truth!

Well mr. Harrison, now you're saying the customers are "grossly" over
exaggerating? We see their freight sitting in sidings for a week,
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

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.

Your a prick. Waiting 30 minutes is not acceptable and you fu..king no

with your pie hole. Never said anything that deserves being talked to
like that.  Your pie hole post reaks of management. Next time I can't
get my pay ticket put off because computers are screwed up and I can't
get someone on phone I'll just go tell a TM to get his ass on the phone
and sit for 30 minutes because I got a damn life and need to get home
and get my rest. CSX isn't the damn electric company. Corporation this

Unprofessional as hell. You miss a call you got 10 MINUTES to call back

On hold for whatever, c'mon man, call your bank, or call the electric
company, that's not an unreasonable time to hold, you're just
impatient. The only reason you held for the second 20 minutes is
because you hung up and cried about it. Sure something may be going on,
but really? It's all about me and they need to answer my call because
I'm important. 
And to the engineer looking for a bonus, I'm sure you'd sign your
best friends job away for a few bucks. Our company is collapsing and
you're worried about a bonus. They aren't giving you a bonus.

Me,
Just to be clear I wasn't knocking driving a bus as a profession, only
meant maybe they have a better contract and representation.  As for my
"source", I know people who know people who know people.  The BLET
has always looked out for the Engineers and made sure their contract
was as fair as they could get and that they would continue to have a
better than average income.  This comes right down to regulating the
pools so that they are working "full time", unlike the conductors who
have to keep rest days turned off in order to make a living.  Ever
wonder why there are almost always more conductor turns on a pool than
engineer turns, it's not because the utu cares more about their
members, only seeing to it that those dues keep coming in. Pretty soon
this will be just another suck ass job with mediocre income until you
make engineer and can hold a turn regular.
BTW, the gaurantee XB for EN will be 3800 a half.....

is a division of the Teamsters which represents 1.3 million truck
drivers.  

   You also mention the BLE-t has negotiated for $51.50 an hour. What
is your source of info for this? Let me guess, you heard it at work in

The time has come to say goodbye SMART.  Should have done it when the
UTU let their self be overtaken by another Union, and for what, more
bargaining power, maybe if u want to drive a bus some day...Goes to
show you how strong the UTU was, couldn't even talk their way out of
that outcome.  I'm not bashing UNION'S, just UTU and SMART.  They are
absolutely not looking out for our best interest, not at the National
level.  It's ashamed that there are great LC's out there that truly
care about the members, but their hands are tied when it comes to any
support from above.  It should be a punishable crime for some of the
inequalities that exist in our contracts amongst the exact craft,
class, and group of employees.  In the last 10 years the Northern
Region representation has cost their members about $ 200,000.00 EACH ,
compared to the Southern Region.  That should be a crime.  That's
based on an assumption that that each member would receive their shares
of stock, bonus,and 401k match per year over 10 years.  That's O.K.
though boy's, "They aint taking our bump".  And they can't even
stand up for our 48 hour rule in our GD contract.  Wake up IDIOT'S,
the same BS is about to happen again if we don't act.  The BLET has
already reached an agreement for 51.50 an hour, the Southern Region is
in talks, and the Northern Region say's, " Hey Guys, we ain't going
for this bullshit, they gone listen to us". And we gone get Fuc**d yet

called the blue flu if your balls are big enough to stick together. He
never said anything about striking. Didn't you read his comment about
strikes. what he said was when supervisors treated you like a piece of
crap and walked all over you and your agreement and stole your money
they did what they had to do to protect their rights and their work
environment. I bet he could make a list a mile long of what to do to
get the point across. I know exactly where he is coming from. Railway
labor act has nothing to do with standing your ground and doing what
needs to be done. Kissing ass, running 90 miles an hour and bowing down

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!

Sounds like you might have received a few failures from this Joe Berry.
Did you deserve it?  Did you run your mouth to him? Egg him on?

Not defending this Berry character but was it at the time when the Nazi
headhunting was going on in Jacksonville? Was it when every single TM
and RF were told if they didn't get at least 25 failures a month they
could start looking for another job in another craft? You have no idea
how bad the heat was on them to get failure rates so the company could
show the lawyers in court that the employees were being trained to work
safely and if they didn't they were reprimanded. 
We had some real good upstanding TM's and RF's in our area who were
god fearing and well respected and hated dishing out the failures. They
thought is was a crock of shit but had no choice. Several of us took
minor failures for these guys just to give them some relief from the
heat. Sounds crazy? HELL YES IT WAS!  We did it because we didn't give
a rats ass and we knew once we had a failure they would move on and keep
us off the radar. You scratch my back and I'LL scratch yours. The
southern region was the one who started the stalking and reporting crap
on the employees. Once someone got a failure they were put on a list and
a target was put on them. When this employee showed up at another
terminal or crossed a division line the word was out that they were
there and to go out and watch their every move.
This crap finally made its way to the Greatlakes but got blown out of
the water when the plan got exposed. The orders for the hits were still
out there and the orders for failures was still being crammed down the
supervisors throats.
No one knows what's going to happen with the new King of the Railroad
in place or how he's going to take over this process of stalk, harass
and destroy the employees for use in the legal system. Don't be an
idiot and think it will stop. Good chance it wont. So if you ran your
mouth or argued to much or even stood your ground for what you thought
was right be careful if you do it again. It might be a mole brought in
by Harrisons lynch mob and you will be sorry as hell!

Something you should know before you come, the ATDA is the most useless
Union on the damn planet.  And the only people they care about are the
pre-08 dispatchers.   So don't plan on them actually looking out for
you, they will sacrifice the 300 post-08 people to give the 75 pre-08
people something.

CN OTHER  

So what your trying to say is Mr. Harrison had no problem allowing
crews to ignore Federal regulations on the movement of restricted
equipment. Its is well known that yard supervisors will fudge and look
the other way in order to move freight out of their yards to meet
departure times to save their own skin but if the CEO is aware and
allowing it we have a whole new ball game here. Does anyone have any
proof he was aware of it and allowed it or maybe encouraged it?

Me,

I'm not a company officer....but I was, and know, or knew a great many
officers and how this RR worked, I told uncle hunter to go F himself
back in the Spring for reasons I'd like to keep between us.  I'm just
letting you know what is out there.  They have technology and tools to
run off those that aren't getting with his program. (I helped develop
them  with CSX technology under the Ward regime,)  Take it or leave it
its your choice.  I know one thing don't do what is expected of you
and youre out with insubordination charge on top of whatever they can
dream up on you.  No BRCF, No UTUIA, No Lempca....and if enough do it,
a whole terminal is closed down.

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

You all should be patient and expect higher wages in the future and

isn't getting a dime.  The operation ratio is over 70% right now. So
much shit was wrote off when Harrison invested in the company that it
made the debt ratio look great but the fact is that didn't change the
operating cost and it's higher than ever. Smoke and mirror book
keeping and we are going to pay for it.  Just plain sick over this

JEDI, your obviously not a very educated person, as many who post on
this website, and you know nothing about business.  Nothing is in
defense of EHH and his business ethics.  You just don't understand how
a corporation works and that's ok, many do not.  If anyone thinks EHH
actually reads the crap on here and is going to get his feelings hurt
by your comments, well, your sadly mistaken.  If he does view this site
I'm sure it's purely for a good laugh before he goes to bed.  As for
the UNION comment you made, with out it we'd be making 10 bucks and
hour so I'd say the UNION is a good thing for sure, although they
(UTU) just turned down 48$ an hour in exchange for the bid system and
giving up work rules and arbitrairies that 90% only benefitted pre 85
guys BTW.  Who gives a f**k about claims they don't pay any way.  If
you don't believe it do some research.....Every cod would make 5000 a
half but the UTU would lose some members to furlough so the dues coming
in is more valuable than the members earning a favorable wage to support
their families.

profits even after loosing 30% of its revenue from coal.CSX was a little
top heavy in management,but they managed to keep the operating ratio in
the low 70s and still keep expanding its business.Now they are in a
regressive slide for only one purpose,to make them prime for a merger
while the current stock holders take their money and run.Wait till the

To the idiotic post about brake sticks :  The policy can't be changed
to optional because some kid will hurt his or her self climbing on a
car and applying a hand brake and in turn will sue the company because
they didn't have a brake stick and if they did they surely would have
not suffered an injury.  So if none are allowed on the property then
the blame is on you for not being able to work safe.  Other RR's
don't have them so quit whining about it and be a man or woman......As
for all the post about EHH's health, who gives a rats ass.  This is
such childish comments that it really doesn't warrant a response but
it's getting ridiculous.  As for customer's lost, this man's no
one's fool.  He's protecting the one's that we are achieving a 65 %
or below operating cost.  He could care less about anyone bringing the
average down.  For those that can't comprehend, if you owned 100
stores and 50 were making 100% profit and 50 were making a 50% profit
then while you are making good money overall ( 75% ) it would look
better to investors if you were at 100% profit so get rid of those 50
stores even though your earning good money and making a profit.  As for
the whiner's about EHH putting blame on "pushback from the troops",
while I don't appreciate it either, many are to blame, if you don't
think so, just look at some of the comment's posted.

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.

around 92. Been getting this kind of power alot. Call the mechanical
desk if you can't change it.  It's been slowly happening over the

we won't notice to get ready for winter montbs. Bet your bottom dollar
it's an TH move.  Few says 90 pds for freight. PERIOD! Report this

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

I am completely convinced Eugene is nuts, really I mean it, not just an
insult thrown out. He has many plans and positions that run 180 degrees
in conflict with his goals of efficiency and cost cutting but the one
that tells me he has lost his mind is the helper engine matter. Anyone
knows the time it takes a crew to double a hill and that it ties up
even a double track main for hours in many miles both directions each
time one train has to perform that operation. It is totally in conflict
with his supposed goals.

Every day we come in and check the news with the hope ther is a news
item that he took the dirt nap the night before....can't come soon
enough.

These investment hedge fund greedy MFR's are so totally blinded by
greed and I hope they lose a bundle as a lesson, they never get it.
Sears is a great example as CEO Eddie Lampert has been there 13 or 14
years totally screwing up Sears/Kmart and they keep him in
there....amazing. I think we have to hope Eugene's emphasyma gets him
soon.

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

$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

Thank you SMART-TD General Chairmen for sticking up for us!!!!

http://www.myutubo.com/News.html



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.

NEWS FLASH!

The evil genious known as Hunter Harrison have once again pulled one
off and did it in style. By closing down the diesel shop and cutting
the fueling/prepping staff to the bare nubs, along with closing down
90% of avon yard (located in Indianapolis Indiana) he has managed to
not only cut this months electric bill in half, but the cost of
overhead for the month as well. In the meantime he used his precision
railroading plan for an excuse to upgrade the CSX Hawthorne yard for  a
buyers market. The run down yard and buildings were not of any real
interest to any short line railroads but with the track improvements
and new structures it is now a buyers markets. With buildings for
maintenance and the ability to fuel engines along with a crew building
the short lines are now turning an eye to the property.   The INRD
would be the best investor in the property as they already have
business out of Indianapolis and are partnered with the CN in an
already booming Intermodal business. The belt around Indianapolis has
always been a thorn in CSX's side and Hunter will have no problem
giving that business away. 

This is why Hunter is known as the king of railroading. He knows how to
turn a profit and bamboozle everyone along the way.

Hope he make a fortune on the property at Hawthorne. Now, if he really
is the king as Progressive railroading has always claimed, he will
strike a deal with the buyer. Maybe even lease it with usage rights and
profit sharing.  Great yard for more Intermodal business with the
INRD/CN!

“Service has declined to the point that it appears CSX is trying to
drive my plant out of business. I have missed customer orders and been
forced to idle my plant numerous times due to failure to get service.
The only answers we get are basically, ‘That’s tough. Get used to it.’
The situation is untenable, and I am actively looking to switch my
business elsewhere wherever possible, as soon as possible.”

Not defending any one from not doing a class one air brake test right,
but once you have had the air pressure up to 75 or more on the rear and
flow below 60 and you have done your set and release you can leave the
yard with less on the rear. Its not necessary to have 75 pds on the
rear to leave. You already had 75 when you did the class one test. Read
your rules before you say something to an official that sounds like you
are an idiot. There are air brake and train handling rules for starting
a train and they are black and white. "Allow sufficient time for air
brakes to release".  Doesn't say anything about having 75 on the rear
or the flow below 60 again. Its up to the hogger to decide if he feels
his air brakes have released and he needs to wait longer before
departing.

Pay more attention to the other crap they are violating out on the line
of road. Like illegal roll by inspections when picking up cars on line
of road. TM's have been following crews around and rushing them. Been
making them skip a full inspection of both sides of the train before
doing a roll by. That law hasn't changed.  Also running trains without
proper clearance bureau messages and no paper work for engineers on
tonnage weight and load empties. 
Turn off the PTC AND THE TO if you aren't given the proper info in
writing. If they give you info over the radio call the PTC help desk
and the TO desk and report who and when they told you the info.
Both departments have made it very clear.

IF YOU PUT UNDOCUMENTED INFO INTO THE PTC OR THE TO AND THE PROGRAMS
HANDLE THE TRAIN INCORRECTLY WHICH RESULTS IN DERAILMENT OR BROKEN
KNUCLES OR DRAWBARS YOU WILL BE HELD FULLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DAMAGE!
DO NOT MAKE UP/GUESS THE INFORMATION DISENGAGE AND REPORT IT TO THE
PROPER DEPARTMENT.  
CSX's inability to provide paper work for your pickup is not your
fault nor it it your responsibility for make a million phone calls to
get or nor do the work of the YM or TM. Cover your ass and turn the

Avon-Hawthorne

The place is crawling with new Tm's and supervisors from Florida and
elsewhere. WATCH YOUR BACKS. Right now they are swamped with all the
crap HH has created at avon but when things don't look like they are
happening as  fast as HH had planned, the retaliation is going to hit
the fan. We can hear the old man yelling..."OFF WITH THEIR HEADS!"
Its going to get real ugly. Don't think for one moment that any of you
will stop the ego maniac from doing as he has planned. He will not let
up. He will change you or break you. His comment to the STB to go
f....k themselves and they wont tell him how to run HIS RAILROAD should
show all of you what level his mentality is at. This old man is no
different than Tony Ingram or Dave Brown was. Both of them always
bragged that CSX was their railroad.  They all forgot that each and
every one of us who own stock are owners of this railroad. We are all
investors. We may not have a seat on the board but we have the power to
influence it.  There is also a confidential number you can call and
report problems to the STB! You can inform them of any customer you
know that is not getting serviced properly and is having problems
because of it.  This is not HIS RAILROAD!  It belongs to all of us.
Lets not let him ruin it for everyone who has had their lives invested
in it for years!

who are on the bid system. Crew management has not been fully briefed
on the situation and will be calling crews to work areas they are not

explaining the situation and having them make entries in your employee

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.

In regards to blaming crews for my failures. 
"If those pesky crews would stop closing yards and hump terminals and
bottlenecki ng everything, customers would get their cars. We wouldnt
be losing customers to NS and trucking companies. The pesky crews
demand 2 mile+ trains with set off and picks up along route. They
refuse to have enough power to run trains and demanded I put engines in
storage. They've ran off all the management with their fear tactics.
They want to keep everything secret until it happens without notifying
anybody about whats going on. Theyre not wanting to pay more in health
insurance and give up rights to help the greater good of this company
and help pay my salary and bonus."

So yes, I do blame the crews because if I had to run this railroad my

Great attribute of a leader.  Is one who accepts responsibility.  Good

If that old fuck won Railroader of the year.  He wouldn't give thanks
to the men for their long hours and sweat.   But he'll pass the

Crews

Hunter is on his last leg of medication. He has had to double his meds
and is just about to lose his ability to breath without a machine. 

People wake up!  This is his last chance of trying to be the king of
Railroading. The more you fight his changes the more he is going to
buckle down and show you he will do what he says and what ever he
wants. He has nothing left. He is going to die of either lung failure
or heart failure. He also has a limited amount of oxygen provided to
his brain which will cause him to lose any sense of recognition.

His partners are just sitting back and waiting like vultures. He wont
last that long. The stress will take its toll on him. He just wants a
tomb stone that says he was the greatest railroad CEO in the world. 

He is no better than trump when it comes to his ego and his control
freak attitude.  Give it time. He will lose it to his illness.

LET THE BALL GAME BEGIN!


First pitch. The STB sent a letter out to Harrison on July 27th
requesting weekly briefings with their department heads.


Second pitch. Harrison informs lower staff that the STB can go F*%#@8K
themselves. They are not going to tell him how to run his railroad.


Third pitch...... still waiting in the stands to see how the STB is
going to react to this blatant "I'm god and Im not answering to you
or anyone"!

Stay tuned for further broadcast from the box!

Hunter Harrison and his financial backers are pursuing a hostile
takeover of the Union Pacific. The Team presented a proposal to UP'S
Board of Directors, and described how inept the current management team
is. And that is due in part, to UP's CEO unwillingness to eliminate
10,000 employees, and an acceptance of all liability for running drug
trains out of Mexico!

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

Hawthorne has over 800 card stuck up their arsses for Avon and can't

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!

Precision!

Be very careful what your post. The post from under radar sounds a lot
like a post from management. This has happened several times over the
years when they are feeling threatened or names are being thrown out.
We haven't had a chance to look at the server location. Do not post
the names of industries that are not being served properly by the
company. This would allow other competitors to contact them and
possibly make better offers to take their business. Be very careful
that you do not cross the line in this area. Do not use any dates or
times that you were involved in any of these jobs or any times you have
witnessed poor service or failure to service the company. The company
moles that work at your yard/terminal will rat you out even if they do
not have proof. This will put a target on your back. Do not discuss
with anyone that you are posting on this site. YOU WILL BECOME A
TARGET. DO NOT TRUST ANYONE YOU WORK WITH. There are company moles in
every terminal and on every division. THIS IS A FACT. Don't be afraid
to post or be afraid to tell the truth just do it in a manner that it
can not be traced back to you or create a bidding war with competitors.
 You have obviously brought some heat down on someone. His threat was
subtle but clear. Most likely a supervisor who cant get his work done
in his area to satisfy the new KING of CSX!

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.

ALL TRAIN AND ENGINE CREWS!!!!!

 Heads up to all crew employees who have been working long pools for
most of their careers. As of now the plan is to cut all long pools a
little at a time to see how few crews can be used to handle the
existing freight. Since most of you are working on self sustaining
pools it is suggested to make plans to be away from home until you can
get 6 or 7 starts. Some pools have already been eliminated in other
areas and more cuts are to come.  If your territory can not handle the
reduction in man power then trains will be doubled and blocked so they
can be swapped in route. If there is still a problem with man power
shortage in your territory then trains will be rerouted. Mark my word,
there will be a reduction in manpower. There will be future furloughs.
The format of precision railroading includes reducing the number of
trains run thus reducing the number of employees in the company.  Be
prepared to work long hours and getting called out as soon as you are
rested. If you need to be at home with your families then you might
consider taking a yard or local job. This may be your only option.

We know which TM is now assigned over the St.Louis line which includes
Terre Haute IN. We are also well aware of previous threats of
insubordination on other T&E employees in this area. Reports are coming
in that many supervisors are using the threat of insubordination. If he
was forcing them to do a move that was on the good faith challenge list
then they should have called him out on it. Nothing has ever been put in
writing, that we are aware of, that states you can no longer use a good
faith challenge. If it wasn't they can still file ethics charges and
contact OSHA to see if the act he was forcing them to do was considered
unsafe enough to put them in harms way and could be considered a serious
work place violation. 
  
All employees are issued a life insurance policy when they are hired.
There are guidelines that employers must follow under these policies in
order to protect the insurance company from having to pay out claims
that could have and should have been prevented.
MetLife is the policy holder. You were also given a policy for
accidental health and dismemberment. You can call MetLife and put them
on notice that there is a supervisor who is putting employees in harms
way. File a formal complaint with OSHA. Have it on record just in case
you are pushed by this supervisor or any supervisor for that matter and
you do get hurt.  Start a paper trail. There is no place for harassment
or intimidation in the workplace no matter how much the new CEO is
breathing down their necks. Expect the threat of insubordination to be
the most used course of action by your supervisors. This action
warrants the toughest course of action from the employee. A formal
complaint also needs to be filed immediately with your Local
Chairman's. A hostile work environment has already been created
throughout management and is now trickling down to the T&E workforce.
Again, there is no place for this kind of brutality in the work place.


MetLife-  1-800-357-4482
OSHA staff can discuss your complaint and respond to any questions you
have. IF THERE IS A EMERGENCY OR THE HAZARD IS IMMEDIATELY
LIFE-THREATENING CALL YOUR LOCAL OSHA REGIONAL OR AREA OFFICE OR 
1-800-321-OSHA.
Work safely, watch each other in the fields and under no circumstances
do you ever allow a supervisor to threaten and intimidate you or anyone
into doing something that can threaten your health or that of others.

EEH -- This was confirmed correct this morning through senior management
at the CN. "Hunter didn’t voluntarily retire from CN. CN wasn’t
planning on renewing his contract.”

CSX employees -- I feel very bad for the employees. Both for the
families that no longer can make there house payment and the ones left
that are going crazy with work. No one in management wants to answer
anything even how small it is for fear of there job. Customers have
started finding other routes that have the CSX in the route least
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.

Can't use BNSF to access my plants in the deep southeast, they get only
as far as B'ham.

Service problems are visibly worsening last week and this week,
multiple terminals and lanes.

I am very familiar with the UP during the 98-99 meltdown. It was made
much worse by Dick Davidson's arrogance and my way or the highway
attitude. Was longer and deeper than it should have been because his
pride would not let him admit he was wrong and alter the game plan. It
was so bad, there was a coup attempt to get Davidson out in 99. It
failed. Many referred to him at UP as a switchman in a suit.

As bad as Davidson was, Eugene is worse as he is not only a big ego
arrogant type but also driven by extreme greed. I am seriously
considering a third problem....he is possibly losing his mind,
really....His hatred of hump yards makes no sense to me if he is all
about efficiency, statements of trying to single track the waterlevel
route add to my wondering but the one that tells me he no longer has
both oars in the water is the cutting helper locomotives and doubling
the hill.....a horrendously inefficient mode of operating and will
really gum up lanes badly....from a guy that is supposed to be about
cost cutting and efficiency ? He talks about longer trains but is
parking power and cutting HP on trains, I already have cars pulled off
manifest trains and parked as the cars were overweight for the HP
assigned. Joke if you want about not enough oxygen getting to his head
but I am seriously considering this guy is off his rocker at this
point. The fact the wealthy investors and Mantle Ridge stand by this
guy show how blind their own greed has made them......you can't make
this stuff up. I hope the stock tanks enough that they kick EHH out and
take a bath, maybe that will wake some up that support EHH when they see
what their blind greed has taken them.

Careful with that axe Eugene.....

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?

Customer here....we feel for you guys. Eugene is the worst thing I have
seen in business, industry or the railroads. We are pulling business as
much as we can going to truck or other rail due to CSX misrouting cars,
sitting on loads, running us out of empties etc. We have a business
type we really cannot shut down a plant and realized back in March CSX
was headed into the drain and would not get better due to Eugene's
greed and arrogance, we started to make changes early.
Many inside contacts I have say EHH has emphasyma which based on the
few med details we all do know and his appearance certainly looks like
a realistic explanation. This is no surprise as he got the shareholders
to approve the 84 million he walked away from at CP last month and now
he hints as being a short timer. Thus the reason he is ramrodding major
changes through with little planning and a totally unrealistic time
slate...so he can get his bucks before his time runs out. Pictures of
him at June board meeting looks so gray one has to wonder if he has one
foot over the grave and the other on a banana peel...sure hope he checks
out soon before he burns CSX to a cinder...best of luck

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.

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.

Good info UP NORTH.  That's right on with the information we are being
told by UNION Reps that have been in contact with CN,CP counterparts. 
They also said while it was a big adjustment and unstable times they
all came out making more money and have had 2 opportunities to go back
to the old agreement and chose not to.  This EHH is certainly a monster
to the industry and the company it seems.  Guess he knows what he's
doing, time will tell....

Name: UpNorth
E-mail: needoxygen?.com
Employed as: Other, non-employee, for N/A
Posted: 23 July 2017

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.

Some of you guys are absolute IDIOTS.  Proves my point that a lot of you
need to be fired.  First off you fools, you don't get that my remarks
being a short timer and an interim president relates to my 3 year
contract.  In the RR business that is a short timer, and if I choose to
leave before then, my money's been earned.  I've proved that most of
you morons in JAX weren't needed and I'm working my way down the
ranks.  As for the the T&E nut jobs that think the FRA is in anyway
concerned about a train tied down, or too long for the EOT to work,
just shows you know nothing about railroading.  I'm a true old school
REAL "RAILROADER", I know how to get things done in this business. 
You think the shareholders are going to listen to any thing you
IDIOT's are saying, you are sadly mistaken.  We are in this for the
money.  All these investors are backing me to make us money, not to
worry about a bunch of snotty nose, pandering, whining, candy ass cry
babies.  PS.  Don't think my oxygen tank will run out any time soon,
the shareholders have been very generous, I've got the latest version
designed by NASA.  Besides, my minions are in place for the CSX plan of
tomorrow if anything should happen to me.  GODSPEED FELLOW "TRUE
RAILROADERS". I WILL CONTINUE TO RETURN US TO A TRUE RAILROAD AND GET
RID OF THE CRY BABIES.  Eventually all that's left will be the
veteran's of the USA we pushed to hire and we will prosper
again....GOODNIGHT ALL. "I need a refill Michael".

FRA!!!!

There are trains stacked up outside of Avon yard for miles. Some of
these trains are over 2 miles long and have been siting on road
crossing.  Some have been blocking private drives where its the owners
only way out. They are tied down and no one on them!
You also know that there is no way in hell the Tele's are working
properly on them.  The communication drops on every train I have been
on that's been this long.  What do you plan on doing about this. You
going to step in and start talking to the crews about it?  You all told
the Nashville division guys to file reports and complaints and we all
know they have.  Whats your next step. When you going to step in.

Extra board guys are dog catching every single day. the Great lakes
division chiefs are threatening engineers if the wont go drag a train
in that's not in their qualified area. Some guys haven't been east
and west out here and they are telling them if they don't go get on
the trains where they are current anymore they are pulling them out of
service and they will go qualify on their own time with no pay.
Refusing to give them pilots!

They have been told about FRA LAW 240.231 and just do what they always
do and just laugh and blow it off.  
What are you going to do about this!!!!!  They are so desperate they
are doing what ever they want to keep HH happy including raping out
union agreement. 

You FRA inspectors better get your arsses in gear and start stepping it
up!

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.

Oh yeah, here's a neat one: trainmaster was to start vacation tomorrow,
finished his 39 hour shift at 18:00, by 19:00 he received an email
stating that all management vacations and scheduled days off have been
cancelled until further notice! I believe it was sent to all
trainmasters. Not sure if anyone else in management is included. Does
he want them all to quit?? What's the real plan here? Out of maybe 8
or 10 trainmasters that I see, I'd say 5 or 6 are considering
quitting, like soon.

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

“We had a rule that said you could take a nap while you worked,” Mr.
Harrison ( Eugene) said in a recent interview. “We don’t have that
now.”
 Looks like the old horse thief Harrison is up to his arrogant
propaganda and  worker bashing again. Big man on campus with his Wall
Street journal lackey,  I mean reporter, Paul ziobro controlling the
narrative how lazy and entitled we are. NO NAPPING. You overpaid lazy
under worked lay abouts is what all the Headline readers Thoughts are.
Little mention of schedules. Forced work days. Nor a few other reasons
this was helpful. When they brought necessity up  it's well down in
the article.
 Eugenes other slightly less than stellar actions include stealing a
guys lunch money and giving it to fat pink palmed paulie, paramount to
horse thievery. Paulie is the enemy. Every time that sorry classless
bastard walks out of a Walmart someone should belittle him. Harass him
verbally. Hope he touches you. Then bash his gold fillings down his
throat. For the rest of paulies life he should be looking over his
shoulder. No paulie the teamsters do not like you. Nor are they afraid
of you. You will reap what you've sown  paulie. Have no doubt. 
Paul.Ziobro@wsj.com
https://www.wsj.com/articles/no-more-naps-on-the-railroad-says-new-csx-boss-1500024602
Need to post this article on social media. Explain the facts.  Don't
let Eugene regain the initiative in the propaganda war. Post it. Spread
it. Get the truth out there. Kinda ironic the old horse thief steals
workers money. 12+ hours days without breaks or lunches then lies and
claims we have an entitled culture. While giving paulie our stolen
lunch money. Unbelievable. Rotten Eugene to the core. Works from home
while denying us sick time. Capitalism run amok. This cannot stand.
Strike? Refuse return orders? Stand like men or die like worms. Horse
thief's use to get hung. That would be to good for these two. Guy
works his ass off to provide for his family and these two steal his
money. Refusing to pay earned overtime. Miles ran. Contractural claims.
Then lie to the press. Where's Justice. When's Justice. How's
Justice. 

Ps. Conrail merger brought chaos. Service interruptions. Government
stepped in. Perhaps that's what is needed.....

Pps. Eugene says this is his best gig ever. Obviously because he has
more workers to abuse, demean, humiliate, and  steal from. Lucky us.

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
is currently holding thousands of customers cars everywhere throughout
the company with no plan to get them to their destination.

truth out here. I know service hiccups will happen in his plan, but
there's some unnecessary intimidation and abuse of power going on.

you northern whiners keep complaining and will add to your own demise if
you don't straighten up and be railroaders. Here is how this works.
Things get screwed up and you complain, and contribute to the problem
merilly. Business gets lost and more cuts come as a result. You are
playing against Harrison and he never loses. Nothing is constant but
change. Stand up or be gone, simple as that. BTW, this always happens
initially when Harrison takes over an operation. Don't take the good
railroaders down with your piss poor attitudes. Face reality. For those
who survive him, you will make more $, be home more often, and
eventually be better railroaders. I paid dues for 30+ years and the
union can't do anything for you because of corporate power. It is
today's business environment for all unions. Trust me, Harrison would
love it if you went on strike, as would wall street. Just set up the
pickets, but please stop complaining.

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

Many questions need to be answered by full-time union officers.

Why are the salaries so high when they do 5 day work weeks with
holidays off?  They also get per diem & expenses if/when have to
travel.
Who actually pays for their insurance?
Who's dues monies provide them with a union pension - that's in
addition to RR Retirement?

Railroad brothers, 

We need to get serious about what is happening to not only this
company, but our jobs, our lives, our families' lives.  Because of the
dismantling of our company by Harrison and Mantle Ridge, only for them
to flip stock, each of our futures are in jeopardy.  The lives that we
all have worked hard to secure and the future that we all have worked
hard to ensure is at serious jeopardy.  Now we can all keep complaining
and keep talking about it, while watching it happen.  Or we can get
serious and plan a hostile takeover so that we can physically take our
company back!  This is a time for us all to become one and take a
stand.  We need to do whatever it takes to show that we will not stand
for this any longer. We can start with organizing a strike.  I know it
gets talked about all of the time, but what are we going to do?  Are we
going to wait until all of our jobs are gone and then say, "we should
have gone on strike a year ago"?  Or are we going to do it now and
stand up for once!  

We are made up of strong, smart men and women.  We do not have to take
this!  People like Harrison do this because they know that we will not
bond together and put a stop to it.  If we have to take lives, then so
be it!  There are people who need to be killed!  We need to take
action!  I'm sick of seeing our company be dismantled!  I'm sick of
watching friends and co-workers be wronged for absolutely no reason!  I
know that all of you are sick of it too!  

What are we going to do about it?

What are you going to do about it?

Let's bond together for once!  Let's take action!

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!

Loco 1-10

You are 100% right. Just as the Trump has a vice, HH has a selected
henchman to do his bidding after he is gone. As long as the stock is
rising and their pockets are getting filled nothing is going to change.
They already have their plan of action down to the last letter and no
one will change it unless the new CEO that takes over after HH is gone
is just playing a game and is waiting to change course to better pad
his pockets. If your unions are not already paid off under the table
then they should have already done their research and should know who
will replace HH if and when he is either too ill or incompetent to run
the company. They should have had an extensive back ground check done
on the man and his legal team and should know his past history and
where his head is at. Your GC should already know all this. Corner your
LC'S and find out what they know. There is a dusty rag in every closet.
No one gets to the position that HH is in without stepping on a lot of
toe and calling in favors. Your only an idiot if you think their path
has been one of moral high ground. A good business man never "poops"
where he eats. The work force can make or break a company. There is not
enough experienced management to handle running the Railroad if the
workers decide enough is enough. Calling in the scabs and doing things
the old fashioned way just doesn't cut it anymore. People are more
demanding and want what they want now. They have no patience for a melt
down. Blue collar workers are more ignorant than ever because they
don't know what it was like before there were unions but if given the
right push they can become like a herd of sheep. One starts the herd
and the rest will follow. Start asking questions.

T&E Employees

It seems there is some concern about the possibility of a new
attendance policy in the works that may be considered more stringent
than the last. What ever policy is developed can not break State or
Federal laws. An attendance policy is not uncommon in large
corporations. Unfortunately you have workers who do not want to come to
work on a regular basis and therefore the burden to do business is put
back on the workers who do. This burden is a company policy that
usually ends up punishing those who do not deserve it.
No matter what policy is developed you have medical protection rights
for yourself and your family. The laws are too lengthy to post. 
All children are protected under several child protection agencies and
any medical treatment they may need comes first before any attendance
policy that lays ground rules for absence from work for medical
reasons. It is not necessary to get into the details about the medical
rights/protection of children. Most company/corporations do not want to
test the waters on this subject and are usually very accommodating.
Second, if your family physician feels it is necessary for you to miss
work due to an illness or injury, their written orders should be
considered adequate enough to excuse you from your duties. Many have
expressed their concerns that the company has said they can deny a
doctors order if they feel it is not proper or not an eligible excuse
and the employee can be ordered to return to work and given points
towards future discipline. This is something that you must discuss in
detail with your physician. Many medical doctors find this action not
only a form of slander but boarders an insinuation that they are in a
habit or writing orders that could be look at as a form or malpractice.
If a medication is prescribed and your doctor orders you to miss work
while using it there should be no denial to that order. There are many
medications that the USDOT has listed that do not allow any one working
for any company/agency that is involved with the transportation of
commerce/goods to consume and work at the same time. You doctor is well
aware of the side effects of the medications they prescribe as well as
many state laws that govern the use of them while driving a motor
vehicle. Remember, your corporation is not exempt from following all
state laws. If your attendance policy has a point system that is used
to determine progressive discipline steps and you are given points for
taking medical days that are deemed necessary by your physician then
you not only have an issue to forward to your union representative but
you also have grounds to take the issue to your state health department
and outside legal counsel. You may be bound by state laws that do not
allow you to operate a motor vehicle  and federal laws that do not
allow you to work with any transportation department.  Points assigned
to an employee who are absent for medical issues or other personal
reasons are considered discipline points. These points are not given to
any employee as a form of reward. They have one purpose and one purpose
only. To eventually discipline the employee for taking too many days
off from work. Discipline points should never be given to an employee
with written orders from a legally licensed physician. 
Do your research on your medications and give a copy of your policy to
your family physician. Discuss their choice of action if you been
denied an excused absence due to their orders or given points because
their order was not considered legitimate enough to warrant your
absence from work. Be prepared. The best course of action is to educate
yourself on your State and Federal laws.

Employees
Just accept anything we offer in this next National Contract agreement
and just vote on it and move on. You all won't make to your retirement
anyways.

The healthcare we are offering along with
the 2 percent raise and the signing bonus are good enough. We just need
more cheap
working blacks and hispanics to sign on

Thanks for reading.

I'd be careful about threatening to punch and kick the CEO. All this BS
being thrown about by certain CSX employees is because they now have to
work at someone else's pace, not their own. I can tell you from
experience, better to shut up and follow the rules. If someone does not
want to work, there are options. When I was confronted with this during
my stint, I kept my mouth shut and worked harder and survived to
pension. I learned more and became a better railroader. It's not too
late to look at it as a challenge and change your work life.

State facts. Not gossip. Not one single female driver has even
suggested they were harassed. Not one PTI driver has heard one bit of
evidence of seen anything inappropriate. Do not say they are afraid to
come forward because that is a lie. In fact two have already filed
complaints and charges against PTI for their treatment. None of them
are afraid of anything. You are obviously disgruntled because he has
become your boss now and isn't as chummy with you as in the past.
Maybe your are a TM who was asked to leave and then was replaced by a
promoted YM when you feel you should have been offered your job back.
Maybe you are a PTI driver who is mad because this TM wont let you have
your pick of shifts and you are retaliating. What ever your reason, if
you have proof put your money where you mouth is. If you know something
and they find out later that you did you will be charged with failure to
report. Come forward , state facts or find something better to do with
your anger.

Great idea!   I just posted my review on glassdoor and indeed. Everyone
needs to do this.   Lets bring all the attention we can to this company.
  The contract proposal is a joke.  The idpap is a joke. The previous
idpap wasn't strict enough?  Caps is a joke.   I just heard from tm
that there is even a worse attendance policy coming out soon.  I think
this will be about 7 policies I've read since hiring out.  I don't
know how it could be any worse.   I heard Peter was coming back to.

Its not a new low in the RR industry. Corporate has been harassing
management to get as many failures on the employees as they can for
years. Over 20 years for that fact. Several Tm who quit spilled their
guts to workers. Couldn't handle the threats and some even had a moral
conscience. It was "get your failure rate up or start looking for a
craft to move to because you wont be working in management. Many
explained that it was for legal reasons. Employee gets hurt and wants
to sue if they have anything on the employee they can use that in their
defense claiming that they have extensive training on safety but the
employee just "Wont work safely" and follow the rules. A lot more to
it than that as well. HH is dangerous to all union employees because he
is not only money hungry and power hungry but he has an ego that makes
trump look like a prep school baby.  The UTU and the BLET have their
work cut out for them. The trumped up charges(no pun intended)are just
a beginning to what is to come. The members better start taking a hard
look at their rights and protections covered under federal law in
regards to their rights as a union member in the united states. The
first place to start is with the LMRDA! Read it and start educating
yourself. 
When the RF's were weeded out and the TM's took their
place(restructuring) there were several that were supposedly told if
they wanted to remain as a TM they better be able to work 7 days a week
and be available on call 24 hours a day. It was also mentioned that if
they took a sick day it better be in the emergency room because
anything less would be a guaranteed walk to the front door. 
Can you imagine if all T&E did that. Insurance companies would lose it
and the company would be in a panic when they wanted to pull out. Sure
there would be some larger co pays for emergency room visits but in the
long run it would hurt the carrier more.
Long story short, the members better get educated, learn their rights
under federal and state law. This is a business. It is NOT A
DICTATORSHIP IN A FOREIGN COUNTRY!  Make your union do what's right.
If they wont then you have options. Look into forming a different
union. Pool your resources and hire outside legal help. You think it
was bad when all the rejects from NS came to CSX, you haven't seen
anything yet.

ATTENTION CREWS AND OTHER POSTERS


Seems that the disruption is hitting an all time high in the last two
week. After scanning the servers, there seems to be quite a few hits
coming from North Carolina, Georgia and Florida(Jacksonville).
Apparently the posters have struck a nerve with upper management and
their moles have crawled out from under their rocks again. Below is a
list of the most hit topics under review with the cause of concern.

#1- IDPAP-Discipline harassment and excessive charging
#2- Vierling-Conduct unbecoming and embarrassment to the company
#3- Brake sticks- lack of concern for safety and injury protection
#4-Hunter Harrrisons health- Concern for stockholders, wall street, and
investors reaction to unstable condition of CEO.

Keep up your discussions and do not let the moles distract you. They
love nothing more than to drag you into worthless childs play such as
longshoreman and others have done.  You have the attention of
corporate! Use it wisely!

T&E

You were warned on this site that the new IDPAP was going to be an open
target practice policy. Like you were told, keep the previous copy. They
put in writing examples of what the company agreed were minor or serious
offenses in the past. No reason to make an offense they turned their
heads to more offensive since Hunter took over. It is unacceptable.
Meet with your local union representatives and begin a plan of action
to combat what looks to be a plan to impose excessive discipline.

The old rule of thumb was that IF you were a really good manager in one
industry and were forced out you would be snapped up or even promoted
in another industry. Even at the least, a related industry. What CSX
manager is getting grabbed up to run Sears? What manager is grabbed up
to run a trucking line, or airline, or rent a car business, or
something related? No Bill Gates, or Jeff Bezos, or Elon Musk here.
Oddly enough, Oscar Munoz partially fits the description. No other CSX
manager is snapped up for anything, although I heard that John
Bradley!! got fired and actually was hired by BNSF! Who would have
thunk it!

Medical premiums up. C0-pay up- deductibles up.  2% pay raise each year

Doing away with bidding and bumping. All self supporting pools. 
ELIMINATE ALL EXTRA BOARDS.
COMBINE ROAD AND YARD AND CREATE NEW ZONES TO WORK, 25 MILES FROM
TERMINAL OR FIRST MAIN LINE SIDING WHICH BOTH ROAD CREWS AND YARD CREWS
WOULD BE REQUIRED TO HANDLE ANY LOCOMOTIVES,CARS, TRAINS AND PERFORM ANY
WORK INCLUDING SERVICING INDUSTRIES- WITHOUT ADDITIONAL PAY!
This frickin nut job is out of his mind.  What the hell is a local job
for. What is a road switcher job for. Yard crews can do work within the
limits of the terminal. Conrail had that shit figured out and we did
just fine. 
I was on duty 10 hours last trip out of terminal. Got to hotel and was
there for 21 hours before we were called out. Stuck on the train 9
hours before we got off of it at home. 40 dam hours away from my
family. 40 hours away from my kids. If this idiot gets away with this
that means we could roll in and be sent out to switch some dam industry
or go get a train out of a siding outside the yard, or hostel  power in
the yard, or switch out cuts or WTF EVER for 3 more hours after we've
been gone from home for 40 stinking hours. Its time to go home. Its
time to see the family. Its time to go make the wifey happy! That's
what a yard crew can do. That's what a yard conventional crew can do! 
And don't tell me to get on a yard job if I need to be home because
that doesn't solve the dam problem. It just puts that yard guy out
were I was and he's got to be putting up with the same shit.  FRA and
union blew smoke up our ass said giving us 10 hours rest would give us
a better quality of life. All it did was give us a chance to sleep 5
hours. Didn't do shit for quality of life.   You better be talking to
your LC and letting him know that you aren't paying dues for this shit
and we better be getting double time on a separate ticket after we knock
down the home signal at the terminal if we got to stay and do yard and
local work after we have been gone for days!

So are you the same guys that cried like babies when brake sticks first
came out and they told you that you had to use them??? He doesn't want
them because they are an expense, he doesn't want them because it's
another unnecessary rule where they absolutely require them, and at
those same places, I've seen hours wasted looking for one or walking
to get one. All it's doing is requiring us to be real railroaders
again. Same with the moving equipment rule and others. If you're
afraid of everything and not capable of climbing a car, then you don't
belong out here. I'm not a manager, I'm just embarrassed to be called
a conductor when my union brothers are crying about simple tasks that
we've always had to do. Get over it and go to work.

I've been around forever and I have rarely seen much evidence of
managerial ability. The few that might have any are called in by higher
management and threatened if not focused on discipline (primary
measurement), followed by excessive hours worked, time spent in strip
bars,and family connections. Despite RR myth, very few are educated,
and if so, are forced out. Per org chart, a few folks in Operations
Research ARE educated (you have to be) and are typically foreign, with
actual PhD's or good quality masters degrees. Usually people with
those backgrounds go to better jobs, often with high security clearance
required. CSX doesn't need security clearance, Boeing does. Regular RR
management jobs have zero education, or mail order BS, or possibly a U.
of Phoenix or Excelsior MBA. Ward had a summer session quicky course
from Harvard, for people already executives with money. He did NOT have
a Harvard MBA. Sounds better when you mumble it. His Ma had a Pizza shop
and pool hall, IIRC. David Levan was a Public Accountant w/accounting
degree, but no CPA (I know, I asked him) nor anything else. Seemingly A
decent guy, too, IIRC. EHH? I'm guessing he has the same gang structure
as CSX, EXCEPT ALL EX-CN, CP, IC, etc. It's a shame we couldn't get
Jeff Bezos, who PLANS in advance and then makes radical changes ONCE
THEY WILL WORK. No thrashing around, no mass confusion.

ALL T&E employee's


KEEP YOUR COPY OF THE PREVIOUS IDPAP POLICY. EXAMPLES OF VIOLATIONS MAY
BE THE ONLY THING YOUR UNION REP CAN USE TO KEEP YOU FROM BEING
TERMINATED FOR A MAJOR CHARGE THAT SHOULD BE CONSIDERED NON-MAJOR.


Previous IDPAP... Three groups: Minor-serious-major.

New IDPAP.....Non-major and Major

Previous IDPAP....List of Minor and Serious offenses. A single serious
offense will not be considered sufficient to warrant dismissal.

Previous IDPAP....List of Major offenses

New IDPAP....List of almost identical offenses. One MAJOR CHANGE. THE
THREAT OF A CHARGE FOR THE VIOLATION OF SOCIAL MEDIA POLICY. Please
view page #4 closely (example #11)

The new IDPAP policy is extremely condensed and vague as to what should
be considered a non-major. No examples were given as what should be
considered minor or serious. This leaves any action not listed in the
major category as open for interpretation. Remember the
disclaimer....Listed examples are illustrative only and not intended to
limit appropriate handling. Example of minor and serious offenses in the
previous IDPAP are examples the company  put in writing that they felt
were to be handled under a specific level of discipline. There is no
valid reason any of the previous examples under minor or serious should
be trumped up as a MAJOR offenses unless the employee is a repeat
offender.

Social Media charge under Major.....You can find the social media
guidelines in the csx codes of ethic on page 38 and the gateway.
However, do not be afraid to use any social media site, including this
one.  As previously posted:

NOTHING IN THE SOCIAL MEDIA GUIDELINES OR SOCIAL MEDIA POLICY IS
INTENDED TO INTERFERE WITH YOUR RIGHTS UNDER THE RAILWAY LABOR ACT OR
THE NATIONAL LABOR RELATIONS ACT INCLUDING CRITICISM OF CXS's LABOR
POLICIES, TREATMENT OF THE EMPLOYEES AND TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF
EMPLOYMENT.

Please remember that many view this website on a daily basis. Do not be
afraid to use this site to have healthy and productive discussions.
However, when doing so remember that post done in a professional manner
are more credible than post that consist of nothing but gossip, garbage
and extreme hostility.

ALL T&E employee's

Do not discard your copy of the previous IDPAP policy. The information
printed in section II under serious offenses may be the only thing that
your union rep can use to reverse a ruling of Termination if the
violation you are charged with is interpreted as a MAJOR offense but
would have been viewed as a serious offense as stated in the previous
IDPAP policy.  

The new IDPAP policy is written in two sections. Section I-NON MAJOR
Section II-Major offenses warranting removal.

You should have noticed that minor offenses and serious
offenses(previous policy) have been grouped together under section
I(non-major) in the new policy. 

NOW LOOK VERY CAREFULLY AT THE LIST OF MAJOR OFFENSES UNDER PART II OF
THE NEW IDPAP POLICY. These violations are almost identical to the
previous listed violations in the previous policy.

No where in the new policy are the previous serious violations listed.
These serious offenses were considered offenses THAT WOULD NOT BE
CONSIDERED SUFFICIENT TO WARRANT DISMISSAL unless you were a repeat
offender. If you are charged with any of these offenses you have
grounds to argue that they should be considered under part I of the new
policy. 
The new IDPAP policy has been extremely condensed and is very vague on
what violations are truly considered offenses under section I.

Now lets get to one of the biggest changes in the new IDPAP policy
listed under MAJOR OFFENSES.
READ example/paragraph 10 on page #4 of the policy. No where in the
previous policy was there a reference made to "SOCIAL MEDIA POLICY".

You can find suggested guidelines in the CSX codes of ethics handbook
on page 38. Do not let this discourage you from having healthy
discussions on any social media site.  

                      SOCIAL MEDIA TRAINING
          NOTHING IN THE SOCIAL MEDIA GUIDELINES OR SOCIAL MEDIA 
          POLICY IS INTENDED TO INTERFERE WITH YOUR RIGHTS UNDER
          THE RAILWAY LABOR ACT OR THE NATIONAL LABOR RELATIONS
          ACT INCLUDING CRITICISM OF CXS's LABOR POLICIES, TREATMENT
          OF EMPLOYEES AND TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF EMPLOYMENT.

Always remember that your post are viewed by numerous groups outside
the railroad industry. If you have a serious topic to address do it
with class and tact and not with trash and garbage. It will make your
post more credible.

When is that ass clown Jack Vierling going to get the axe and go back

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

The IDPAP policy is a company policy. Our union's have no
authority/right to dictate the development of the policy. However they
do have the right to address any issue of a policy that may create a
hostile work enviorment or unfair labor practices.

APE 20-30 
You need to see a therapist. Your workers are losing their jobs. Yards
are being closed and jobs are being cut. You must be management because
you have nothing better to do than post pure smut about one of your
fellow TM'S.  Is he doing well enough that your job position is
threatened? Are you worried HH might think you can't cut the mustard?
It's dog eat dog again. This happened when Ward came in as CEO. Stab
each other in the back to insure your position. It's sad. You should
go back to the craft if you can. Your days as a supervisor are limited
with your obvious lack of professional skills. Let's not forget you
have also drawn attention to a wagon driver. Did it ever occure to you
that the drivers may all be put under a spot light now? Get it together
or see a company EAP counselor.

I've posted similar to this before, I hope someone paid attention. The
RR, whatever it's called on a certain day, is erratic, unstable, and
rewards bad behavior. Your goal: survive. 2 things: be thrifty, and
prepare you AND wife (or S.O.) for post RR life. Prepare a
"portfolio" (like a resume) listing everything you have done that may
translate to college (i.e. Marine Boot is 6 credits of Phys. Ed., not
really the same but plays the game), any scrap college credits,
technical training, edu. things you forgot but need to document NOW,
this is not a 2 hour exercise, take it seriously, check out tech and
trade schools, perhaps wife can upgrade from Wal-Mart to pharmacy tech,
(or if lucky from LPN to RN or better) don't buy the new Silverado,
don't know if CSX will pay any tuition but try, (Indiana if can get
Indiana address ex. 901 S. Emerson Hawthorne or friend lets you choose
Western Governors University) or any certificates you can pick up, if
lucky it will work out. You are in iceberg alley, same as Titanic,
don't assume iceberg won't hit you. If near retirement note you and
wife each get 8% EXTRA $$ per year COMPOUNDED so hang on long as
possible, goal is extra $$ NOT promotion or making friends.ANYWAY,
PLAN. Don't stew and drink and hope for a miracle. Assist your
brothers if possible but remember your TM's and union reps are ALL
looking out for themselves.Good luck!

No doubt, the CSX system is (was) very different than the others.
The Board Of Directors \ shareholders put EHH in overall charge.
Not employees or any shippers who can/may be hurt.

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.

Safety glasses 2 times in 3 years, gone.  Attendance policy violated 2

  THIS POLICY IS DESIGNED TO PROVIDE EMPLOYEES AN OPPORTUNITY TO
IMPROVE
  AND SUCCEED THROUGH A MEASURED, OPEN, AND JUST PROCESS AS THE

TEAMWORK
  AND COMPANY OBJECTIVES.

  CSXT INTENDS TO CONTINUE TO PROVIDE A SAFE WORK ENVIRONMENT IN WHICH
  ALL EMPLOYEES CAN EXPERIENCE MEANINGFUL WORK AND CONTRIBUTE TO THE
  TEAM'S SUCCESS. CSXT REQUIRES MANAGERS TO PROVIDE FAIR AND
CONSISTENT
  TREATMENT TO ALL EMPLOYEES UNDER THEIR CHARGE AND TO USE
ALTERNATIVES
  TO FORMAL DISCIPLINE WHENEVER APPROPRIATE.








  GENERAL GUIDELINES

  PROCEDURES FOR NON-MAJOR OFFENSES ARE ADDRESSED IN PART I OF THIS
  POLICY. INCIDENTS OF A MORE EGREGIOUS NATURE ARE ADDRESSED IN PART
II.
  THE EXAMPLES LISTED IN PARTS I AND II ARE ILLUSTRATIVE ONLY AND NOT
  INTENDED TO LIMIT APPROPRIATE HANDLING FOR OTHER SIGNIFICANT
OFFENSES
  THAT MAY WARRANT CORRECTIVE OR DISCIPLINARY ACTION, UP TO AND,
  INCLUDING DISMISSAL.

  FRA REVOCATION EVENTS

  IF AN INCIDENT IS COVERED BY FRA CERTIFICATION REGULATIONS, IN
  ADDITION TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS POLICY, THE INVOLVED
  EMPLOYEE IS ALSO SUBJECT TO THE APPLICABLE FRA REGULATIONS AND ANY
  FEDERALLY MANDATED REVOCATION TIME PERIOD. BASED UPON THE
EMPLOYEE'S
  RECORD, ACCEPTANCE OF RESPONSIBILITY, AND THE EMPLOYEE'S WORK
HISTORY,
  DIVISION MANAGEMENT MAY ELECT TO PROVIDE THE EMPLOYEE WITH
ADDITIONAL
  TRAINING FOR UP TO ONE-HALF OF THE TIME THE CERTIFICATION IS
REVOKED,
  CONSISTENT WITH FEDERAL REQUIREMENTS.
  PART I: NON-MAJOR OFFENSES

  NON-MAJOR OFFENSES ARE DEFINED AS RULE VIOLATIONS, POOR PERFORMANCE
OR
  VIOLATION OF CSXT'S POLICIES, PRACTICES OR PROCEDURES THAT DO NOT
  RESULT IN DERAILMENT OR DAMAGE TO EQUIPMENT AND THAT ARE NOT
OTHERWISE
  IDENTIFIED INDIVIDUALLY IN PART II OF THIS POLICY.

  A SINGLE NON-MAJOR OFFENSE NOT IDENTIFIED IN PART II OF THIS POLICY
  WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED SUFFICIENT TO WARRANT DISMISSAL. SUBSEQUENT
  NON-MAJOR OFFENSES WITHIN A THREE (3) YEAR PERIOD WILL BE HANDLED
  PROGRESSIVELY. AN EMPLOYEE WHO COMMITS THREE (3) DIFFERENT NON-MAJOR
  OFFENSES WITHIN A PERIOD OF THREE (3) YEARS OF COMPENSATED ACTIVE
  SERVICE MAY BE SUBJECT TO DISMISSAL. ADDITIONALLY, BECAUSE REPEATED
  RULE OR POLICY OFFENSES ARE CONCERNING AND REQUIRE MORE SIGNIFICANT
  HANDLING, EMPLOYEES VIOLATING THE SAME RULE WITHIN THE THREE (3)
YEAR
  ROLLING PERIOD WILL BE CONSIDERED REPEAT OFFENDERS AND WILL BE
HANDLED
  IN ACCORDANCE WITH PART II OF THE POLICY BELOW.

  MANAGERS WILL RETAIN THE DISCRETION TO HANDLE APPROPRIATE
NON-CRITICAL
  MATTERS THROUGH INFORMAL COACHING.

BE
                           | ASSESSED)
    
----------------------|--------------------------------------------


  A MAJOR OFFENSE THAT DOES NOT RESULT IN DISMISSAL (SEE PART II,
MAJOR
  OFFENSES) WILL BE INCLUDED AS A STEP UNDER PART I OF THIS POLICY FOR
  PURPOSES OF THE PROGRESSION OF DISCIPLINE FOR SUBSEQUENT NON-MAJOR
  OFFENSES WITHIN A THREE (3) YEAR PERIOD.  FOR EXAMPLE, IF AN
EMPLOYEE
  RECEIVES A THIRTY (30) DAY ACTUAL SUSPENSION FOR A MAJOR OFFENSE AND
  SUBSEQUENTLY COMMITS ANOTHER NON-MAJOR OFFENSE WITHIN A THREE (3)
YEAR
  PERIOD, THAT OFFENSE WILL BE CONSIDERED THE EMPLOYEE'S SECOND
  NON-MAJOR OFFENSE UNDER PART I WHEN DETERMINING THE APPROPRIATE
LEVEL
  OF DISCIPLINE.

  PART III: PERSONAL INJURY HANDLING

  THERE WILL BE NO FORMAL HEARINGS SOLELY TO INVESTIGATE AN
INDIVIDUAL'S
  PERSONAL INJURY.  FORMAL HEARINGS MAY BE HELD TO ADDRESS ANY RULE
  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.

If my husband is unfortunate enough to be pulled out of service over 30
days for something as simple as a little safety glasses rule because the
new boss is making everything an insubordination charge and his out of
service insurance wont pay, you can bet your bottom dollar we will
cancel it and since they are tied to the unions Im sure they wont like
that either!   Just think what their insurance department will do if
all the csx t&e guys all start dropping that premium they pay every
month. How many thousands upon thousands of dollars will they lose each
month. How much interest do you think they will lose because they don't
have the money to invest anymore. Maybe we will just call our Insurance
union guy and ask him what they plan on doing to protect their business
if this new boss wants to play hard ball with everything being an
insubordination charge. Money talks!

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

Can easily remember when a stop signal violation = an automatic year off
before they'd even talk to you IF you survived. Knumbnuts worry about a
suspension, heck, could be dead. 

Everyone employed is provided with all the company rules, etc.
True: Trying to claim "didn't know" won't help much if/when in
trouble for a rules violation. 
True: Job Protection\Income Insurance doesn't cover Insubordination. 
If the brass is going to start charging that all the time there's going

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!

Humps are expensive to operate & maintain.
Depending upon what you hear & read & where - word is that slop freight
car loadings are down.  We all know how it is: they like intermodal,
unit trains, through freight; care very little about small-time
shippers.   
Still, someone, somewhere will have to perform rail car sorting & that
won't get done cheaply.  
The big shots know what they have planned.  Think it's just a
coincidence the changes are happening while national rail contract
negotiations are still in the works?   Guess we'll see how it all ends
up.

That's not all that's going on either. HH has them TM's so stinking
scared they are pushing us to cut corners on brakes test to get the 
move expedited faster.  Im not taking the fall for this crap. If the TM
is around and the FRA shows up, you can bet your bottom dollar Im
pointing out the idiot who's trying to whip me into do a half ass test
to get the cars picked up in route. They have the TM's out there on
line of road going to every place that a crew is picking up cars in
route to make sure they are putting the whip on them. This bull shit
intimidation by HH is going to get someone fired. I hope they sue the
hell out of him too if they do. People take notes. Keep times and
conversations. He can only bully for so long before the shit  hits the
fan. If you are a real dispatcher then you should know the rules on
brake test. Your supposed to be allowed 3 minutes for inspections on
each car your picking up. Your supposed to inspect both sides before
you do your brake test. You ask the crew how many cars they are picking
up. Then add their walking inspection time and doing the hand brakes and
then a set and release. Do the math if a crew is picking up 30 cars. If
the tm is around and they are doubling back to their train in less than
an hour bet your ass that's the reason why. Yeah some guy walk fast but
there should be a reasonable amount of time allowed for this. Its
frickin FRA Brake laws.  So expect a crew to be awhile when they are
picking up cars that got to tested in line of road!

Witness:
What you described is not just unprofessional, it's unsafe. 
 

Watchdog:
Lame-ass FRA can or will come down hard on employees but lets the
companies get away with all kinds of violations.  A good-sized civil
penalty assessed is a huge worry for an employee but a drop in the
bucket to the RR.  And, even if/when a RR company gets fined & the
charge sticks they'll argue & probably get the amount reduced. 


To those that may be unaware:  
Wasn't until after the Rail Safety Improvement Act of 1988 that
individual employees & management officials could be fined for
knowingly & willfully violating rail safety laws.  Prior - only the
carriers were fined (of course if an employee was of any fault - would
be raked over the coals).

CREWS!


#8NOBRAKE is 100% correct on his warning they are watching travel times
of all trains. A lot of us have been out running and have heard the
dispatchers front out crews on the radio asking them why they had
delays between point "A and point "B"!  It just happened recently.
Dispatcher wanted to know why it took the crew 1hr and 18 minutes to
get from one cp to the next and then after a lengthy grilling the
dispatcher finally realized they were profiling the wrong train symbol.
  What was unprofessional as hell about it was all this  grilling on the
radio was done where other crews could hear it and probably put the crew
on the edge and they were most likely distracted from it and not paying
100% attention to their job. That kind of counseling should be done in
private or the crew should be instructed to call a supervisor after
they are safely stopped.  Ethics violations could play a part in this
kind of behavior.

It is very nice of you to relay this information to the T&E employee's
but your post sends a message that trains running 30 mph because of
telemetry failures will be under the gun and managers may possibly
download the locomotive to look for negative reasons for delayed runs.
This kind of comment may intimidate Engineers to over look failures and
run over 30 mph to prevent any hassles from upper management.

Let me assure you and any Engineer who is reading this post that if you
have a failure that requires you to run 30, YOU BETTER BE DOING IT! Your
computers can be downloaded and will be by the FRA. When the carrier
decided to build trains so long that the HTD is incapable of keeping
communication they took this problem upon themselves. The FRA offices
are quite aware of this problem. Several complaints have been filed. We
know the situation that the crew has been put in and are watching these
extremely long trains. 
Word of advice. It doesn't matter if you have a FRNocom for 20
seconds. You better be throttling off. You have an HTD that is going in
and out you notify your dispatcher immediately that you will be
adjusting your speed for the HTD communication throughout the trip. If
you are using the TO system you must report any failures of your HTD as
part of your delayed usage of the system. There is no time limit as to
how long you can run with a failure waiting to see if the communication
will return. You have a failure, you immediately begin to reduce your
speed to 30 MPH. No exceptions. If your communication returns then you
can continue to run at your prescribed track speed. It is up to you to
report the problems to your dispatcher. We suggest you do so
immediately to protect yourself. We also strongly urge you to follow
the rules completely as written in the CFR 49 codes 200-299: RULE

Just lost 2 more long pool trains out of avon, Indiana yesterday. Looks

of the day!  The cuts just keep coming.  They are still working on a
plan to close the hump yard and move everything across town. Spending
thousands upon thousands to build new buildings and expanding an old
yard in a horrible part of town.  Oh well. Guess the brand new building

Many don't understand how all the changes are affecting the "APPEAL of

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.

I thought all trainmasters were now standardized at $93k per annum,
meaning they could, and will, work 7 12 hour days plus be on call 24/7.
This does NOT involve extra pay for some big shot calling you and
screaming at 0300 telling you to pack your bags. The "company car"
program meant you paid for the SUV the company chose for you, beat it
to a pulp on company roads, and bought an insurance program heavily
biased towards company needs. Super high ranking officials did very
well, the trainmaster in the shack at flatwheel junction did not. The
kool aid promised that some day you will move to JAX and SOMEDAY,
maybe, you will get the dream job IF the big bosses cousin Bubba does
not get out of jail and take it first. BTW, many people may remember
the intro College PSYCH book show the boss screaming at the employee,
the employee shaking his fist at his wife, she screams at the little
boy, and the little boy is shaking his fist at the cocker spaniel
cowering in the corner. Sound familiar? CSX management at work.Only the

Grapevine posted that Osborn Super is quitting and they are getting rid
of a few TM, sounds like they are cleaning house in Louisville. How do
you know the super is quitting? maybe he is really getting fired but
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

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

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.

How has it been handled thus far when locomotives have to be coupled
together, MUed per se, and a FNG doesn't have a clue as to how to do
assist with that?

ALL T&E Employees

Be vary careful with the new system bulletin change which has removed
Operating Rules 414.1-414.9.  Many of you have expressed your approval
of the deletion of the 3-step protection rule. However there were other
rules that were removed as well.  Look very closely at rule 414.9. 

This rule allowed the locomotive operator to foul the locomotives in
his/her charge. It also allowed other members of the same crew to foul
the locomotive to assist the locomotive operator. 

THIS RULE IS GONE NOW.  DO NOT GET YOURSELF CAUGHT UP IN A TRICK BAG
BECAUSE YOU THINK YOU CAN STILL DO AS THE RULE ONCE INSTRUCTED.

Locomotive engineers have protection under Chapter 7-Locomotive
conditioning. Coupling and uncoupling locomotives addresses the right
for the locomotive engineer to go between the locomotive in charge. 
No where in any chapter does it state that a CONDUCTOR can do the same
or assist the engineer. If we have missed something in the Employee
operating manual that allows this then we apologize but so far we have
not.

The removal of rule 414.9 must be addressed further my upper management
to clarify what should be done now that those procedures have been
abolished. Be very careful that you do not set yourself up for any
failures by believing you have the right to foul locomotives unless you
are the operator in control. 
Do not confuse rule 414.9 with other rules on fouling equipment. Rule
414.9 was written specifically to address LOCOMOTIVES. Not other
equipment.

Be safe and read all changes in operating rules THOROUGHLY. Anyone who
has any time under their belt working for the railroad industry knows
that a "GRAY AREA" is their worst enemy.

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.

Loyd and All Posters

DO NOT ALLOW ANY POST TO DISTRACT YOU FROM DISCUSSING THE TOPIC AT
HAND(NO NAPPING ALLOWED) This is just another attempt from one of the
company moles to start an argument or disrupt discussions.

Look very closely at Loco 20-30's post. You all know that half the
time you hear T&E employee's discussing the unions they are normally
complaining about the lack of representation/protection they are
getting.

Now look at what he posted....."Anytime the UNION cant figure out
another defense to get someone out of trouble that's the tried and
true backup"!

Now ask yourself if any hard working Union member who pays their dues
for protection/representation would make a comment like that! 
Darn right your unions should be doing everything with in their power
to represent you to the fullest extent possible! Even using crew
fatigue if it is warranted! 

So, DO NOT FALL FOR POSTINGS THAT ARE BAITING YOU! Ignore them and
continue with your discussions. 

One thing that was not addressed in Watch Dogs post was the problem
with scheduled train line up on the IVR and the crew screens. There are
still ghost trains listed for several days and trains that show up hours
earlier than scheduled catching crews short. Going to bed thinking the
information made available to you should be right and 2 hours after you
lay down a train is called 4 hours early out of the middle of no where
and now you are not only freaking out but ready to keel over is a topic
that should never ever be left unaddressed. A train that is late is one
thing. But a train that shows up  hours earlier that posted on the crew
screen or IVR IS NOT ACCEPTABLE! They know where those trains are. They
know when they are running. Not updating information for the crews is
poor management.


LOCO 20-30:

Go back to your desk and find another topic to disrupt somewhere else.
Im sure HH will have plenty to keep you busy in the days to come!

I'll tell you what is ridiculous.  Anyone trying to defend that piece
of shit telling us we can't nap while we're stopped in a siding or at
a red signal.  Hogger is right.  If you're working continuously on the
pools on the road you're going to get tired.  I can't stand these
company men we have working out here.  Probably the same type of guys
that try to sneak in your home while you're working and the ones who
would rat you out if they saw you out while you are marked off.

afraid to nap.  The 1% will be thoughs who know it a new rule brought on
 by the new csx king and he'll have you fired for it! So blow it out
your arss. Who said anything about the union bringing it up anyway. I
didn't see that on the post. As for getting your sleep not everyone
has the luxury of living 5 minutes from the damn yard they work at and
10 hours isn't crap if you got an hours drive home and then kids, wife
 and responsibilities. Don't tell me you get your arss in bed everytime
you come home and get 6-7 hours sleep unless your a yard boy or local
boy who goes home every night and not woke up all night by roster
calls! If your frickin tired at 3 in the damn morning while your
sitting in a siding waiting to move or waiting to get into the terminal
there is no reason in hell someone should have to be worried about being
fired because they were seen taking a nap!  Go back to your supervisor
desk now and quit wasting our time!

ALL CSX CREWS


SYSTEM BULLETIN #004 DATED APRIL 3, 2017 ABOLISHING THE RIGHT TO BE
ABLE TO TAKE A NAP HAS BEEN FORWARDED TO THE PROPER WASHINGTON D.C
OFFICE AND WILL BE REVIEWED. QUESTIONS WILL BE FORWARDED TO A FATIGUE
SPECIALIST ON THE MATTER. SEVERAL CLASS ONE RAILROADS WHO USE THE
G-CORE RULE BOOK ARE STILL FOLLOWING THIS RULE AND ALLOWING THEIR
EMPLOYEES TO REST/NAP.  CSX'S CHOICE TO PROHIBIT EMPLOYEE'S TO NAP
MAY CREATE A SAFETY ISSUE FOR ALL CREWS ON LINE OF ROAD WHO MAY HAVE
BEEN CALLED OUT CONTINUOUSLY ON THEIR REST ARE MORE LIKELY TO BE TIRED
AS THEIR TIME AT HOME TO REST IS LIMITED. TRAVEL TIME TO AND FROM THE
HOME TERMINALS AND OBLIGATIONS AT HOME DO NOT ALLOW ALL CREW MEMBERS TO
GET 5 HOURS REST OR MORE. THE RIGHT TO NAP WHEN STOPPED FOR LONG PERIODS
WAITING FOR PASSING TRAINS OR WAITING TO GET INTO A YARD DOES NOT HAVE
TO BE ABOLISHED FOR SAFETY ISSUES OR CONCERNS. CREWS ARE REQUIRED TO
ANNOUNCE THAT THEY ARE STOPPED EVERY 15 MINUTES SO THERE SHOULD BE NO
QUESTIONS AS TO WHETHER SOMEONE IS ALERT/AWAKE ON THE TRAIN. AS OF NOW,
THE CHICAGO REGION IS RUNNING WITH THIS ISSUE. IF YOU HAVE AN CONCERNS
WITH THIS ISSUE YOU NEED TO CONTACT YOUR REGIONS FRA OPERATING RULES

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

OLD HAT & POS

Your opinions may be correct for the divisions that you work in at the
moment( if your lucky to keep it) but it does not hold true in ever one
of them. Flips do happen and trips do run quicker than 10 hours for
some. You are obviously unhappy at this time and are spouting,


PAY ATTENTION NEW HIRES!  

Hunter Harrison is not in this game for the long haul. He is too old
and has questionable health issues. However, health issues are of no
concern for him.  He can afford the best of doctors and care.
What HH wants is to make his last stand. To be known as the greatest
CEO in railroad history. He wants a feather in his last cap and wants
the final chapter in his life and career to be known as the man who
took over CSX and turned it around. The great and powerful Hunter
Harrison did what no one else could do for a failing railroad. Your
biggest concern better be what the HELL HAPPENS IF HE CANT DO IT! Will
he take his cash and run? Will he leave it all a mess half done? Will
the shareholders and customers freak out and end up causing a crash in
your stock.  Start saving some money!  Put back now for what could be
an extra happy savings account or your mortgage payments.

His first decision was to get in and cut operating expenses. Cut the
over head. That is exactly what he is doing at this very moment.
Closing unnecessary yards and shops are minor. Unloading any
unnecessary assets that do nothing but take up space and are showing no
return will be his biggest task in the next few months. Trains can be
rerouted or doubled or moved in several blocks.  Do your homework and
you will learn that this is not a problem. Katrina did not stop the
railroad. Delayed it but didn't stop it. Shutting down a yard wont do
it either.

Now, ask yourself how he will deal with  manpower and how he will
utilize it , mainstream it and put it to use. His model is almost
comparable to a colony of ANTS!!!
Ever single breathing body will be utilized to its fullest potential.
You will be called to work. You will work no less than 10 and if you
cant be utilized in a single trip, you will be rested and used
afterwards. HH's number one goal is "on time and on the move
freight"!
If you roll in at either end and anything needs to be attended to and
you have the hours left, you will be used. Don't expect any sympathy.
You chose the railroad life. He has a legacy to leave behind. He will
do what ever it takes to make this his last stance. He wont go down
without a fight first. Money is no concern to him personally but his
reputation in history is.  Except that things are going to change.
In the meantime BE SMART and put your money away. No one knows how this
is all going to play out. One thing is guaranteed.  You will have bills
to pay!

Good post but come on, that's been going on for years - Extra list

[Many FNGs don't seem to realize that just 1 minute off in each,

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

You can forget about getting all worked up about the proper call logic
for filling vacancies.  We're all going to end up on one board
covering any direction out of our terminal when they reach an agreement
with the UNION's. Like any other contract it will pass regardless of a
vote.  PRO's : Will be quite a significant pay increase ( If you have
the seniority to make the cut), No more hotel stays.  CON's : Probably
25 % will be furloughed.  Think about it, suddenly you don't need
multiple pools carrying extra employees's, no longer need an extra
board, the carrier will be in control of the "availability list". 
You will be called in order and if someone marks off it will simply go
to the next in line.  This will result in  huge savings to the carrier,
that's why they want it.  For all you whiner's about having to
possibly get on multiple trains, look how often your on duty now 10
plus hours on 1 train.  Figure up or look on crew life at your total
hours worked for the month, multiply by $50 an hour and determine which
way you'd be better off.  Also figure up how many hours you actually
put in from the time you go out and return home after sitting in a
hotel, many times 14 hours 59 minutes getting nothing.  This is time
that could be spent with your family or friends instead of a hotel. 
I'm not debating the two issues, it's going to happen, like it or
not.  So, if you have the seniority to survive the cut, enjoy your new
quality of life..... For those that want to try to buck the system,
read the latest job posting for trainmasters.  Required to become
Engineer and Conductor qualified and "Occasionaly run trains". 
Don't think for a minute that you are in control, might as well get as
much as you can and hope for the best.

WEST END ENGINEERS AT AVON!!!!!!


Listen up and listen up good!!!!  The crew callers are violating the
hell out of article 36 of the SSA agreement.  They are not calling
engineers as CLEARLY WRITTEN IN BLACK AND WHITE TO FILL TEMPORARY ROAD
AND YARD VACANCIES!  

The crew callers have been calling pool engineers off of pools that
they are not assigned to in order to fill vacancies on other pools.
THEY HAVE BEEN TELLING WEST END ENGINEERS THEY HAVE TO TAKE THE CALL
OFF OF THEIR POOLS BECAUSE THERE IS NO ONE AVAILABLE ON THE WEST END
EXTRA BOARD. 
SSA ARTICLE 36#
when the designated extra board is exhausted, engineer vacancies in
freight and yard service will be protected in the following sequence.

#1- OTHER EXTRA BOARDS AT THE SAME SUPPLY POINT PROVIDED THAT THEY ARE
IN WITHIN THE SAME ZONE OR SUBZONE UNLESS THE APPLICABLE ZONE AGREEMENT
PROVIDES OTHERWISE.

THE EAST END ENGINEER EXTRA BOARD IS IN THE SAME ZONE/SUBZONE AND THEY
ARE NOT EXEMPT FROM BEING CALLED TO WORK THE WEST END. 

MAKE SURE YOU CHECK THE EAST END EXTRA BOARD BEFORE YOU CALL A CREW
CALLER BACK WHO IS TRYING TO FORCE YOU TO TAKE A JOB OFF OF YOUR POOL
JUST BECAUSE THE OTHER POOL IS ON THE WEST END. THEY MUST CALL THE EAST
END EXTRA BOARD AND PUT THEM ON THE ASSIGNMENT IF THEY ARE AVAILABLE.

EVERYONE ON THE EAST END HAS BEEN QUALIFIED WEST AND CAN TAKE THE CALL.
IF THE CALLERS TELL YOU NO ONE IS QUALIFIED THEN YOU TELL THE CALLER
THEY ARE FULL OF IT.  YOU EARNED YOUR SENIORITY. YOU DID YOUR TIME.
YOUR EARNED THAT SPOT ON A POOL. NO EXTRA BOARD MAN SHOULD BE ABLE TO
TAKE THAT AWAY FROM YOU.  NO CREW CALLER SHOULD BE SHOWING ANY
FAVORTISM TO THE OTHER EXTRA BOARD.  TO MISS CALL SOMEONE BECAUSE A
CREW CALLER DOESNT KNOW THEIR JOB OR DOES AND CHOOSES TO SHOW FAVORTISM
OR IS JUST TO DAMN LAZY TO RUN THE BOARDS PROPERLY IS NOT ONLY
UNACCEPTABLE BUT UNETHICAL.  DONT TAKE THE CRAP. CALL THEM OUT! CHECK
THE BOARDS. SEE WHO IS AVAILABLE. WE ALL HAD OUR DAYS ON THE EXTRA
BOARDS.  THEY CAN DO THEIR TIME JUST LIKE ALL THE REST OF US!

ALL CREW MEMBERS!

Crew callers have been calling people and not leaving any messages. It
just happened this afternoon again. Someone who has an answering
machine was in another part of their home and when the answering
machine picked up they just hung up and did not leave a message. The
employee did not both to check to see who the call came from. They
receive numerous scam calls and telemarketing calls so they just
ignored it. 10 minutes later the crew caller called back and left a
message this time informing the employee that they were miscalled. 

THIS IS TOTAL BULLSHIT AND SHOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED. CALLING YOUR HOME
AND HANGING UP CAN BE CONSIDERED A HARRASSING PHONE CALL. A PERSON WHO
CALLS YOU TWICE AND JUST HANGS UP IS SENDING THE MESSAGE THAT THEY
REALLY HAVE NOTHING TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT AND IT IS NOT IMPORTANT. NO
EMPLOYER SHOULD EVER CONDUCT BUSINESS IN THIS MANNER ESPECIALLY IF THEY
ARE TRYING TO CONTACT THEIR EMPLOYEE. YOU HAVE 10 MINUTES TO RETURN
THEIR CALL. IF THEY CANT BE BOTHERED WITH IDENTIFYING THEMSELVES THEN
YOU SHOULD NOT BE EXPECTED TO CALL BACK AND ASK THEM "WHAT DID YOU
WANT ME FOR"? YOU CALLED ME TWICE AND DIDNT SAY ANYTHING. DID YOU CALL
THE WRONG NUMBER? DID YOU NEED SOMETHING?

YOU GET THE POINT.  FILE A COMPLAINT OF THIS BEHAVIOR. ITS ONLY GOING
TO GET WORSE. THERE IS A NEW SHERIFF IN TOWN AND THEY ARE ALL RUNNING
SCARED FOR THIER JOBS AND WILL DO ANYTHING IT TAKE TO FILL JOBS AS FAST
AS THEY CAN EVEN IF IT TAKES VIOLATING THE SSA!

You better get it together as union members and start submitting  your
claims and complaints now. It doesn't matter if you think they will
never get paid. That's not the point. The point is to start a mountain
of payer trails and complaints. Put your GC on notice. Get off your butt
and start making calls. Its only going to get worse if you don't. If
you ever needed to stand together as union brothers now is the time.
This isn't a joke. Its not funny. You wont be laughing later when you
don't have a voice at all. Keep paying those union dues with your hard
earned money and sit in the corning crying. Better get a box of tissues
because your going to need them!

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

Csx constantly abuses our neighborhood by blocking the tracks for up to
9 hours and then another train blocks it again shortly thereafter. We
need to drive 3 1/2 miles out of a horseshor road that sometimes has a
train sitting at both ends. Then back up the mile between railroad
crossings. We had an emergency with no electric in the neighborhood for
over 8 hours. Csx was called to move the traim 2 1/2 hours later csx was
still sitting on the tracks and did not move the train. Csx blatently
blocks our crossing leaving two less frequently crossings open. I have
unbelievable pictures of the abuse. With over 200 feet of open double
tracks in front of them..and they block our crossing...

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.

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.

another, elections won't be held again until early 2020.

Just found out the UTU State Legislative Director is secretly checking
into Trainmaster jobs with CSX as he needs a backup plan if he doesn't
get re-elected to his do-nothing, over-paid job. Such a 2-faced
hypocrite to preach the UTU Brotherhood at the Union Meetings yet at
the same time considering taking a management job. Typical really,
he's always been out for only one person, despite what he says.

Mr. Harrison,
You and your hedge fund masters will have to answer to The Almighty one
day for your heartless greed & and lack of morals & human decency. This
company made millions under the former structures in manpower and
assets. I guess it wasn't enough, so pump up the stock by furloughs
and neglecting track, cars and engines. So that in 4 years CSX is a
shell of the company it once was, that has to merge to stay in
business. I hope you sleep well at night knowing your legacy as a
Raliroad Robber Barron was laid like crooked tracks on the backs of 4
railroads workers and their families. My prayers rest on your children
and your future generations to come that the 300 million is spent with
care and generosity. Because what will be said about a man with your
character in few short years, perhaps even months at your funeral.

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

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.

IMPORTANT NEWS IF YOU SUE THE RR UNDER FELA. The traditional way was for
an injured employee to contact a union approved attorney, who is
familiar with RR type FELA type claims, and "forum shop" to have the
case in a union friendly geographic location and the related Federal
Court. So Granite City, Il. will have juries of retired steelworkers,
who think $1 mil. is a fair settlement, whereas another location may
have rural folks that work for county highway, thinking 1/4 million is
way too much.
NOW, in BNSF vs. Tyrell (yesterday Supreme Court) per WSJ article, this
is no longer allowed. Anyway, I think that may mean that getting injured
in Avon In. means that you cannot sue through a union related attorney
in Granite City, Il. but will have to do it in INDIANA but Federal
Courts. Something to think about.

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
they think?

Conductors agreement has article that covers  jobs that have 8 hour
shifts with a new crew starting duty on the next shift.   Coming in on
road trains is not covered under this article. I PERSONALLY  watched a
division manager rip the ass of a YM for keeping a engineer on duty
after his shift ended while the next crew sat in the yard office
drinking coffee. He heard the engineer going off on the radio to the YM
about it. The division manager stood right there in front of us and told
him to put his claim in and he would make sure it was paid. He also said
it would never happen again. The engineer even told the YM at the
beginning of the shift he had to be off on time to make a doctors
appointment. He gave them a bull crap extra move that he knew they
couldn't get done before their shift was done. This YM was bad at this
and also abusing the lunch time and giving late lunches. Was great to
witness a manager with a set of balls do what was right and put the YM
in his place!

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
suggestions? What would happen if a lot of us all of a sudden started
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

In reply to Avon Sucks,

1st Yes, Avon absolutely does suck (it will get worse)

2nd Report Joe Berry to who?  The Great Lakes Division is falling apart
more by the day.   Do you really think they are going to do anything to
Joe Berry?  If you report him to Jacksonville do you really think they
will do anything?  Wakeup!  Nobody is going to do anything to any of
these guys.  They are so shorthanded right now.  Everyone has quit or
been removed.  Your only hope is to stay away from him ir hope he gets
fired or transferred .

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

More on hunter, methods, associates. 

Have no doubt ehh is here to robs us blind and humiliate us in the
process. He proclaims railroading has certain demands that are inherent
and harsh within this profession BUT is the first to use modernization
to eliminate jobs or even an entire craft. So much for nostalgia. His
latest sand kicking escapades included removing napping allowance and
being inside a locomotive cab. At cp he justified his actions, both
publicly and possibly within his own mind, by claiming they had "a
horrible entitled culture." He uses reporters, lackeys from buff
magazines and financial analysis's to spread his propaganda. Releases
stories like a wife calling him, a wife mad cause her husband didn't
get a quit and made it through to talk to a multibillion dollar
companies CEO TO COMPLAIN. Sure  she did. We all know quits benefit the
company more than us. It's about his ego. Give a railroader 8 hours of
work. Most will bust ass getting it done in 6. Everybody's happy.
Customers. Air men. Car men. Outbound crews etc.... except hunter.
Apparently ole hh has disproved the bell shaped curve model. Please
enlighten us all with your findings mr Harrison. Please provide the
empirical data and hypothesis supported conclusions to the scientific
community so we can create a new more sophisticated method for human
behavioral expectations. 

Next, following his cp model.  He will attempt to find the terminal
most likely to stand up to him. It was Alberta at cp.   Happy hunter
intentionally picks a fight. Flys in 60+ managers to break the workers
backs. This gives him time and space to further impose his will on the
workers. After something sets off a major issue or even a strike he
gets the Govt to bail him out. More time. More space. 

To our advantage we know what he does from his past play book. Also, on
our side is his egotistical arrogance. We are going to have to use other
tactics than a direct confrontation. At least. Temporarily. Try and work
with local managers. Most hate him as well. Those who drank his kook aid
are best ignored. Safe days, working extra cautiously, need not be
carried out for multiple days. Or even shifts for that matter.
Hopefully we can eventually organize where a safe shift occurs at
multiple locations or in succession. Let him get his people on jets.
Let them land to find hard working smiling workers. Let them circle for
days not knowing where to head. Gorilla tactics. Not approach march.
USA. not the red coats. Use social media and friends at other locations
to keep in touch. 

We are not the first generation of workers to have a meanie as CEO. Nor
a weak union. He even has slow business to help him. But his goal is
money for his cohorts in crime and his ego. If he doesn't deliver on
the first he may wake with one of his famous horse heads in his bed.
The second is laudable. There are no famous railroaders. Even
Vanderbilt was considered unsavory. All the robber barons are unknowns.
Hater will be but a footnote in the history of Cn, cp and assuredly CSX.


Our goal must be long term. Rid this company of a man bent on its
destruction for his personal gain. 300 mil??? 4 years? $75,000,000 a
year. $1,442,307 a week $206,043 a day. 2 workers salary per day.
That's not counting the salary of our new asst. Director of the board.
Paulie. Mantle ridge Bought a billion dollars of stock at its lowest
point. Mantle ridge was created in 2016. It has 4 employees. 2
advisory. 1-10 clients. 6 accounts. It's funded by ROBERT (Robbie)
JOSEPH CANNON. of horizon investments. 
https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/long-term-investment-horizon-helped-activist-score-big-win-at-csx/ar-AAo1UbY
We must boycott horizon. We must use social media to organize our fight
and discredit horizon. Horizon wants to enable a CEO who abuses workers,
ignores contracts and guts a company then we must be their bad press.
Remove funds.  Check with friends.  Ask them to so as well. Call them.
Ask them to remove support. Post on their face book page. Do all we can
to bring about public understanding of the abusive policies of harrison
and his methodology and who his enablers are. Thus making horizon and
Robbie rue the day they started a war with working men and women. 

We do not have a lazy nor a lackadaisical culture. We are hard
oworkers. Dedicated to our profession.  You WILL NOT change that hard
truth unto your narrative  Harrison. You will not!
This fight we did not ask for. Did not start. But yet here we are.

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.

and make a stand now rather than reacting after the mess is already
been done. A one two or even three day walk off would be catastrophic
to the stock prices and completely grenade in HH's face. Not to
mention put a hurt on his 300,000 shares. Time is running short, need

Harrison the Bully?

Apparently the hunter is loose with a few facts....

Attended university. No mention of graduation. 

Born in 1944. So in 1964 hunter was a ripe old 20 years old. But no bio
lists Military service??? Was Vietnam not going on then? 

Dates: Nov 1, 1955 – Apr 30, 1975. yes it was. Btw nearly 30% served. 

Let's just say the great HUNTER suffered from ailments, and not from a
lack of intestinal fortitude nor a fundamental lack  of a constitution
as a man, like a bad back. Palsy, flat footedness etc. With nearly 30%
of all your peers facing combat, 66% of those  volunteers, would you
really see or label yourself as " a new sheriff in town?" Allow
yourself to be labeled a brass knuckler? " Or label others as
"permissive?" "Demoralized?" Or  "cp suffered from a total lack of
leadership." " spoiled bad horrible culture." It's one thing to
accomplish manly things and wear it on your sleeve. It's something
else entirely to not have  shown the same courage as your peers, and
yet become a bully. Then when you start fights simply demand the
government step in and finish what you started. 

At CN he brought in American scabs and asked the Canadian government to
intercede when the unions went on strike. At CP, after he refused to pay
due wages and practiced many other forms of abuse, they too walked out.
Again, Hunter called on a conservative Canadian government to bail his
ass out of the fire. 

Mantle ridge and pink palmed paulie acquired 5.9% of csx stock while
its price was at a 52 week low. Hopefully the sec is looking into
exactly how that transpired. 

Stockholders, short turn gains are a lotta fun. Sorta like poo &
giggles but: Don't get out you're moral compass and don't ask
questions. Just take your money and run. BUT... hunter rolls the dice.
He's done so his whole career. Will American workers and an American
government allow hunter to abuse workers? Ignore contracts? Will the
workers just accept his abusive methods? What about streets to seats?
Managers are cheaper labor than union workers so it's win win. UNLESS.
something goes awry. Inexperienced folks on a pocket train on a sunny
afternoon is a walk in the park. How about 3 am with stormy conditions,
signal suspension and 95 hazardous loads with not one but two self
trained inexperienced managers. A Slidell or A Lac-Megantic in a
metropolitan area makes csx a penny stock and your dreams of returns
coal dust. 

Not here to take a man down or remove someone's pedestal from their
ass but things have obviously gone awry.  Mantle ridge is a corporate
raider not a hedge fun. Paulie is not a worker. Quote " now we can put
the wealth back into the hands of the shareholders where it belongs."
From where paulie? The  workers? Customers?

Csx biggest stockholders are its employees. If we all vote and vote
against MR and hunter. Or we just suck it up and wait for the apology
tour.

From a Trainmaster:
Hunter doesnt care about agreements, there will be no more work rules. 
Crews will be used where needed and you'll get one ticket to do it, his
way of forcing us to an hourly rate.  Go ahead and submit those claims,
they'll just go in the trash! Refuse to get another train on same
ticket and they've been told to remove you from service.
All field managers who made the cut must become Engineer's.  Training
to begin soon.  They have already used a road foreman to take a train
that struck a pedestrian and the crew refused to move.  Only one that
I've heard about so far.  They have already consulted with the FRA on
this, only concern from them is that when they are used they will fall
under the hours of service.
All cabs in yard service removed, managers will transport crew's.  As
for road DH, they'll be phased out too, crew's will DH on trains. 
The plan is to have crew's swap trains and turn back to home terminal,
thereby eliminating hotel expense, remember, your not getting another
ticket!

Things to come Brothers.                                                
                                    Physically, you can’t run as many
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

Gentlemen,
Per our recent conversations the past couple of days regarding the
translations of agreements. It has been agreed upon by the carrier
(CSXT) and the organizations (BLET & UTU) that all talks regarding
these matters be sent directly to a public mediator of the carriers
choosing. 
While in fact the carrier(CSXT) would like to resolve these issues
without the hardships that mediation will bring, and also the financial
strains that these hearings will place, not only on the carrier but also
upon both labor organizations. 
While this matter is being heard, and until in fact we (CSXT) get a
resolution from a public law board of our choosing, the operations
between Nashville, TN. and Memphis, Tn. will operate as an
interdivisional run. The run will consist of 9 turns with all equity
going to the Memphis PM roster. Additionally, all recrews will be out
of Bruceton, Tn. (000N95) off of a non guaranteed, 15 man extra board,
to be established on 05/06/2017.
Making Bruceton, TN. (000N95) the Home Terminal for all future business
is a decision made by CSXT according to analysis of future business
traffic reports by AAORD. This decision comes after the widening of the
canal and the upgrading of ports in both Alabama and Louisiana.

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.

As a “surviving” female employee it is demoralizing to see the caliber
of some employees remaining after the layoff in March and some recent
terminations. I’ve worked closely with several departments including
police and unfortunately I’ve heard degrading and offensive gender
biased comments made by CSX police officers.  Personally I've heard
Atlanta CSX police officers Casey Camp and Jeff Reed repeatedly refer
to a black female CSX employee (Sheree Bowman) as a bitch.  Although I
haven't worked for CSX long I see how difficult it is for women to be
respected at CSX and hearing these guys confirmed my belief.  I wanted
to contact ethics to report them but with pending upcoming layoffs I
didn’t want to be a squeaky wheel so I remained silent for fear of
losing my job.

Posting from Korea.   There is no bulletin.  We have received only an
email.

Here it is.

Obviously, everyone has seen the news and heard that we have a new
administration in place leading our company.  With that comes changes
that will be implemented by our new CEO.  
 
That being said, we know there will be new operating practices put
into
place, and our jobs, from the top down, will be to adapt to the new
regime and comply with those new practices put into place.  Some new
practices have been communicated to us already, and you can be sure
there will be many more to come.  It has been made abundantly clear
that there is no room for debate with the new practices, and if there
is any deviation from the plan that has been laid out, it will be
dealt
with immediately to ensure compliance.  I think it is imperative that
we
not let ourselves be used to make an example for others who choose not
to comply. 
 
One of the changes that has been communicated is that we will have
employees work full shifts, and is effective immediately.  There will
be no “early quits” allowed.  What this means for us in the Operations
Center is this:  Dispatchers will not work less than 8 hours. If this
means that we have everyone on a particular shift scan in at 15
minutes
prior to their shift (0645, 1445, 2245) in order to comply, that is
what
we will do.  Additionally, those employees will not scan out prior to
8
hours from the time they scanned into the machine.  Employees who are
posting will also be required to work an entire 8 hour shift.  We are
still responsible for complying with FRA Hours of Service regulations,
so make sure that your scan times enable you to remain in compliance. 
 
This is not an office-specific policy.  This is company-wide and we
have been instructed that there are no options regarding compliance. 
We will comply.  The decision has been made from the top to implement
this policy, and instructions have been passed down throughout the
company to put it in place. 
 
In summary, dispatchers will not work less than 8 hours when scheduled
to work.  This includes working a desk or posting a position.  Please
do not be that person that challenges this by not being scanned into
the STARS system for less than 8 hours.  There will be no flexibility,
no excuses, no latitude with this policy.  If there are any questions,
please feel free to contact me, any DTO, or STO **********

No one seems to be able to find the so called order from Harrison
either. Several Trainmasters and Road foreman have been cornered and
asked to produce a copy of it and they don't have a clue where to find
it either. No one can positively say when they saw it or who actually
circulated it.  It may have been something that came out as a system
wide order but it IS NOT a system bulletin or notice. As for the
Unions, they were not approached about the changes in working
conditions and are not aware that this is a closed order. Some one
started this and now no one wants to take responsibility for it. Once
again CSX has managed to put something out there that was not addressed
legally with the Unions. As for road crews being used as J Jobs when
coming out of the hotel, they shouldn't be!  All crews that recrew
outlawed trains should be given tickets related to the train and the
job symbol should be followed with an R. Example would be if you were
to recrew a Q53815 your ticket should be issued as a Q53815R. The
chiefs are using road crews as road switchers to recrews HOS trains
because of a loophole in an article in the BLET agreement, There are 2
conflicting article in the agreement that are causing all this trouble.
One of these article is #50.  You will have to bombard your General
chairman with complaints and demand that the article be reviewed and al
loopholes removed.  In the meantime, the extra boards should be the only
crews given a ticket that is classified as a J JOB! Rumors have it that
Harrison hates J JOBS and recrewing.  Maybe you will get lucky and he
will put a stop to this. The only crews that could possibly be
instructed to stay on duty no less than 8 hours are assigned yard jobs
that have on duty and off duty times of 8 hours or locals.  NO ROAD JOB
SHOULD EVER BE ORDERED TO REMAIN AT THE TERMINAL AFTER BEING AWAY AT THE
HOTEL AND ARRIVING HOME JUST TO MAKE SURE THEY WERE ON DUTY 8 HOURS. 
DOESNT MATTER IF THE CHIEF MAKES THEM A J JOB OR NOT!  The crews have
been away from home and their families and deserve to be able to go
home upon arrival.  If this happens to you again, call your general
chairmans office and file a complaint. Demand that the so called order
be produced and start a petition if it isn't. Doesn't matter if it is
produced anyway. No road crew should be held when they get home.

Crews

Did any of you see the so called system side order that supposedly came
from Hunter Harrison that ALL LOCAL...YARD...AND DOG CATCHING OR J JOBS
WOULD REMAIN ON SERVICE NO LESS THAN 8 HOURS. We have checked every
single system bulletin and notice all the way back to Jan.1st and it is
no where to be found.  
We were at the hotel 32 hours and were called out to dead head home and
on the way they made us a J Job to grab a train in the way in. When we
got done we were made stay at the yard for 2 stinking hours because the
chief said we were a J Job now and had to be on duty 8 hours. After
being away from home for 32 hours we get stuck on a damn j job and
forced to state at the wall for 2 hours because this hunter Harrison
character wants every working 8 hours or else. THIS IS TOTAL VIOLATOR

Crews

Did any of you see the so called system side order that supposedly came
from Hunter Harrison that ALL LOCAL...YARD...AND DOG CATCHING OR J JOBS
WOULD REMAIN ON SERVICE NO LESS THAN 8 HOURS. We have checked every
single system bulletin and notice all the way back to Jan.1st and it is
no where to be found.  
We were at the hotel 32 hours and were called out to dead head home and
on the way they made us a J Job to grab a train in the way in. When we
got done we were made stay at the yard for 2 stinking hours because the
chief said we were a J Job now and had to be on duty 8 hours. After
being away from home for 32 hours we get stuck on a damn j job and
forced to stare at the wall for 2 hours because this hunter Harrison
character wants every working 8 hours or else. THIS IS A TOTAL VIOLATON
FOR ROAD CREWS WHO ARE ALREADY AWAY FROM THEIR FAMILIES AND NOW WHEN

  As far as driving one's self to and from a train. That could

Agreements are different in various regions. However, PL and DV days
are set by caps. Almost all agreements when bargaining took place
allowed for a minimum set of number of people who bid on and could take
these days off at a given time.  If weekend days have been removed and
you have not been given your right to bid on them then you need to
corner your LC and demand answers. No way do I believe for one minute
that the UTU would agree to take away your right to bid on these days.
During manpower shortages they can reduce the number of people who can
take these days but they can not deliberately take away specific days.
Get with your LC and if you can't get answers then start calling your
General chairman.

Expect that a severe Shake-UP will happen once Harrison's name is

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

NEWS FLASH!


Its already started.  The rath of the great white HUNTER has already
started.  Avon hump crews are already following one of his orders that 
ALL CUTS WITH BE CUT OFF ONE CAR AT A TIME.!  Doesn't matter if a block
of 3 cars are going to the same place, each car will be cut off
individually.  Now I don't know about you but it sounds like someone
might end up getting carpal tunnel of the elbow! Can you image standing
on a hump for 8 hours pulling cut levers on 110 car trains going over
the hill. 
He also has put the order out that 8 hours on a local or yard job is 8
HOURS PERIOD!!!  You cant bust your arss anymore and get the car count
that Jacksonville has always required so you can get done a little
early or take just a few more minutes for lunch. If you are on an 8
hour job your butt better be there 8 hours. You actually get your local
work done early and get back to the yard if you got any time left your
going to be put to work in the yard.  Your on a relief dog catch crew
and you drag in a couple trains and got time left you will sit on your
butt for the remainder of the time or the TM will find you any crap
they can think of to keep you moving around for no less than 8 hours. 

Interesting to see how they rape and violate long pool crews coming in
as a J JOB or dog catching job out of the hotel. You sit in the hotel
for 15 hours and they decide to dead head you home because there are
too many crews there the chief will put you on a relief crew ticket and
make you work for 12 hours. There is no such thing as an 8 hour job on
trip rated long pool hauls. No assigned start and end times for these
pool. You get put on a dog catching ticket they are going to run you
into the ground for 12 hours. If there is nothing to drag in on your
way home in the wagon you will be put to work when you get to the yard.
3-4 hour wagon ride then a J JOB dog for no less than 4... Its coming!
If your pool is being used as an extra board all the time get ready to
get your eyes screwed out. 
So get ready to buy some new boots and FOR GOD SAKES START FILLING
THOSE CLAIMS FOR ALL THE TICKETS THE CHIEF GIVES YOU AND PAYROLL
COMBINES THEM AND TAKES THEM BACK!  YOU THINK YOUR GET A SCREWING NOW
YOU HAVENT SEEN ANYTHING YET!

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

Titan

It's my guess you are referring to Bill Setser. He will be heading up
the Northern Region.  What you stated about his chop and fire mentality
has been confirmed as true.  Several supervisors who worked with him
have confirmed he did in fact make it well known that if they weren't
in the fields finding someone to fire they weren't trying hard enough
and were not doing their jobs.  If you can confirm any more factual
information in regards to his lack of ethical reasoning it would be in
the best interest of everyone to be made aware of his actions.  Some
may argue your post does not belong in the safety forum but they could
not be more wrong. When someone new comes to town and takes control
they ALWAYS COME ON FULL FORCE TO MAKE SURE EVERY ONE OF THIER LINE
STAFF UNDERSTAND EXACTLY WHAT KIND OF POWER THEY HAVE! There will be
pressure on the supervisors to show their ability to follow his wishes.
If he is testing them to see which ones can cut the mustard and have the
back bone to fire workers in the field without hesitation they will all
be head hunting without any regards to the rules. This is going to
cause a frenzy in the field and create serious moral problems and
hostile work environment. This in turn creates an unsafe working
environment.  Follow the rules to a tee.  Do not make a single move if
you are in doubt of the exact rule governing the job. We all know the
supervisors have a history of twisting and turning the rules to favor a
failure if they need one bad enough. It has always been this way and
will never change. Do not be afraid to pull your rules book out and
argue the fact if you are wrongly charged. There are major changes
coming to the company and a lot of new heads of state taking over. With
new operation changes and changing of seats there will be pressure out
in the fields. Do your best to follow all rules IN WRITING and contact
your local chairman and General Chairman of all NEW VERBAL RULE CHANGES
the supervisors quote to you as a new rule that has never been put in
writing.

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

Ma’am you have rights and deserve to be treated with respect. As
someone who once worked in HR at 500 Water Street, I can assure you
that nothing will change unless you change it. 

Go here and answer the questions https://egov.eeoc.gov/eas/ 

At the end, a form will load on the screen. Print it off. Fill it out.
Mail it in. Be brief and just use the room they give you. Let the EEOC
decide if this deserves additional attention. You can withdraw the
charge if later you regret it. And if you are worried about CSX taking
action against you as a result of filling, they will not because that
gives you another reason to file a new charge, which is a lot easier to
prove. The EEOC comes down very hard if a company attacks someone that
files a charge.

If you don’t file, which is very easy to complete, no one will ever do
anything about what you are seeing. 

I have spoken with more than 10 educated professional people that have
all witnessed or experienced EEOC violations at CSX and only one of
them filed with the EEOC. That is why you are suffering. People are
afraid to take action and so more people get hurt.
 
Help fix the problem, protect others, get the respect you deserve, file
today.

Just frustrated and feel like venting....

Started in the field as a young woman then came to HQ still as a young
woman. As a woman I  can tell you that stereotypes around sexual
harassment at this company are so backwards.  People in headquarters
and far away from the field assume that sexual-harassment is all the
norm if you're a young woman working in the field.  However I can
attest to the fact that it is quite the opposite.  The further removed
I get from the field the worst of sexual harassment becomes.

  Honestly I have always worked in management of the company and never
experienced any sexual harassment in the field,  it wasn't until I
started working in headquarters that it started occurring. The "good
old boys"  Club is alive and well here and about as stereo typical as
you can get .  White males in their 40s to 50s deciding who moves and
when and where and how throughout the company .  God forbid somebody
makes a sexual advance towards you and you politely decline-  that's
all they need to put you on their "**** list."

  And it always occurs from the men who were never in the field, the
man who only ever worked banker hours and had to do little to get ahead
other than being friends with the right person at the right time .  I
literally grew up in this company and come from a long line of
railroaders three generation strong ,  I stayed away from attempting to
work in this industry for a long time because of my family strong
history of leadership within it .  I was worried that that would be
held against me, but now I see that my gender is worse than anything . 


  I've tried to do everything the men in my family did to get a good
reputation I started in the field,  I worked 24 hours a day seven days
a week,  I missed out on so much time of seeing my young son grow up , 
and all I have to show for it is  A dead end position that I'm kept in
just to keep me submissive to a chain of leadership that thinks they
know what's best without consulting anyone outside of themselves .

 And speaking of this leadership ,   There are some good ones I can
attest to that for sure but they are few and far in between
unfortunately.  The culture here has morphed into one where we are only
looking to get ahead for ourselves and we don't care about the
long-term success of the company or its employees .  When I was growing
up I felt like doing what was best for the company was the major reason
why people made certain desicions.  Sure no one is going to be able to
make a decision that makes every employee of a company happy,  but at
least I felt like that with this decisions were being made for the good
of majority both field and management employees . 

 I get it this industry has a long history of doing bad things to good
people ,  but at least in those times everybody was upfront about it . 
Now we just turn a blind eye and pretend like we don't see what is
going on .   I've worked at high-levels  of other male dominated
industries and moved ahead quickly at a young age and can honestly tell
you I've never experienced such long term blatant harassment like I
have experienced since I've  been in the most "progressive""
department our headquarters has the offer .

Ok- back to the super bowl...

case he doesn't get re-elected to his 6-figure do-nothing job, as he
doesn't want to run a engine ever again.  This man has many faces, you
have to look no further than his Facebook page to see who he is friends

Posters

Well it looks like our pines/imposter has managed to take control of
the site again. Drawing everyone's attention away from the important
topics at hand. If you are a regular poster on this site or have been a
visitor of it, you know the pines character goes back over 14 years.
Maybe longer. Cant say if he started the recent mess with posting the
incident about the unfortunate van accident but he/it has kept the ball
rolling.  There is a car hit in this country everyday by someone who is
either an idiot, tired or lazy or the unfortunate 
victim of bad view from vegetation, buildings, or improperly maintained
crossing equipment. There is also a car crash everyday due to the same
damn things.  Now, we must ask ourselves why has he decided to continue
this rant. Our guess is he is either off his medication, bored or he is
really the company mole who is paid to come to this site and disrupt
all discussions of topics that have the powers to be in Jacksonville
twisting in their seats.  

So lets take the time to put away Mr. pines rants for the moment and
focus on what is happening in and around our yards!
It may not be long before you have a new Sherriff in the CEO seat and
thing will be seriously changing. If you have not googled Hunter
Harrison then we suggest you do. Read his history, Read his ideas and
strategies. He will get a seat on the board of directors if not CEO. He
WILL be an influence. The supervisors are not protected. They are just
as vulnerable and expendable. They know this. Your unions better be
doing their homework. If there is a change of power you will finally
see what your unions are made of. Reducing the work force means
reducing their income or doubling your dues.

After serving as FRA Railroad Safety Inspector (Motive Power and
Equipment) for just over 34 years, I have retired. My decision to
retire was made on March 16, 2012, after being bullied and stalked on
and outside of railroad property by CSX Transportation Toledo Terminal
Superintendent Rob Burkett and  CSX Transportation Toledo Terminal
Trainmaster Lennon Givens, with FRA Region 2 Administrator Brian Hontz
and FRA Region 2 Deputy Administrator Larry Kish refusing to take any
kind of action. 

On the night of March 15, 2012, at the CSX Transportation Stanley
Yard,
near Toledo, Ohio, CSX Transportation Toledo Terminal Superintendent
Rob
Burkett and CSX Transportation Toledo Terminal Trainmaster Lennon
Givens
began following very closely behind my GSA vehicle. It was clear to me
that I was being bullied and stalked by those individuals. Because I
did not want that harassment to continue, I left the railroad
property.
However, Burkett and Givens continued to follow me in Burkett's
personal vehicle. After I made several turns and drove more than two
miles they finally turned away. CSX Mechanical Operations employees at
Stanley Yard are very aware of how CSX Transportation managers
attempted to intimidate me. I was told that one of those managers was
even bragging how the FRA Inspector (me) was run off the property on
March 15, 2012. 
FRA Region 2 Deputy Administrator Larry Kish told me that he would not
defend me. During a previous phone conversation, CSX Superintendent
Rob
Burkett had repeatedly accused me of taking pleasure in delaying his
trains. I assured him that it was the FRA non-complying conditions
that
were delaying his trains, and if those trains had been FRA compliant,
they would not have been delayed.

On March 28, 2012, at approximately 11 p.m., CSX Transportation Toledo
Terminal Trainmaster Lennon Givens again followed me out of the CSX
Transportation Stanley Yard. After driving about two miles and making
several turns, I entered the Lake Township Police Department parking
lot. Givens then pulled to the side of the road and waited for me.
Because the Lake Township Police were out on patrol, I called 911 to
report that I was being stalked. When officers arrived, I explained
how
Givens had been stalking me, and also how CSX Transportation Toledo
Terminal Superintendent Rob Burkett and Givens had stalked me on the
night of March 15, 2012. I then learned that that activity on the part
of CSX managers was in no uncertain terms, illegal. I told the police
officers that Burkett and Givens have been attempting to intimidate me
an effort to shield their FRA non-compliant outbound trains from my
inspection and the resultant delays caused by the serious defects that
I regularly discover. The police officers then took my statement and
asked where they could find Givens. I told them that his office was in
the newly constructed CSX Administration Building at Walbridge, Ohio.
I
also had an eye witness to the stalking and gave the police officers
the
name of that witness. Then, being extremely upset and nervous, I
decided
that I should just go home. A police report is available at the Lake
Township Police Department, 27975 Cummings Road, Millbury, OH 43447
(419) 838-6651.

On March 29, 2012, I sent an e-mail to FRA Region 2 managers and to my
AFGE union officials describing what had occurred the night before.
FRA
Region 2 Deputy Administrator Larry Kish again phoned me to discuss
the
matter. This time he did not say that he could not defend me, but did
not say that he would either.

When I was bullied and stalked by CSX Transportation Toledo Terminal
Superintendent Rob Burkett and  CSX Terminal Trainmaster Lennon Givens
on March 15 and 28, 2012, I believe that a Federal crime was
committed.
On those two days, serious attempts were made to intimidate a federal
law enforcement official in the performance of his official duties.
FRA
Region 2 managers should have immediately contacted the U.S. Marshals,
but instead went to CSX Transportation with hat-in-hand.

During the last few years, I discovered hundreds of freight cars with
ineffective air brakes and other FRA non-complying conditions that
were
prepared for departure in outbound trains at the CSX Transportation
Stanley and Lake Front Yards near Toledo, Ohio. And I documented most
of those defects with photographs. Had I not taken exception to those
FRA non-complying freight cars, they would have departed without being
repaired.

I believe that FRA management is beginning to cater to the desires of
the railroads. They have not told FRA inspectors to back off, but they
have been telling them to alter their inspection procedures. At a
recent staff meeting, FRA Region 2 Administrator Brian Hontz told us
that we would be operating in a new manner. A further statement from
Hontz indicated to me that railroad operational desires will be
honored
ahead of regulatory enforcement.

Prior to my retirement, I was also told that we should do fewer
outbound train inspections and more inbound inspections. Railroads
love
inbound train inspections because they don't cause outbound train
delays. However, inbound train inspections do not give a clear picture
of how the outbound trains will look after they are classified,
inspected and given a class I brake test-initial terminal inspection.
Only outbound inspections can verify that all freight cars have
effective air brakes, secure safety appliances and components that
will
not cause enroute derailments. Also, enforcement action can only be
taken after the railroad inspections have been completed and the
trains
are ready to depart. Again, if railroads comply with FRA regulations,
they will not experience delayed train departures account of FRA
inspections.

I was a dedicated Railroad Safety Inspector for 34 years, and never
received less than a Meritorious performance rating. In fact, most of
my ratings were Distinguished. Also, the accident, complaint,
inspection and violation reports I submitted will verify my dedication
to railroad safety, and to the oath I took back in 1978. I always
treated railroad employees in the manner that I would have wished to
be
treated. The only railroad employees that were offended were the
managers that believed on time train departures were more important
than dispatching safe and FRA compliant trains. 

By not providing proper railroad safety oversight, I believe that FRA
may be going down the same road that the Mine Safety and Health
Administration did a few years ago. Several coal miners lost their
lives due to that lack of oversight. It seems likely that MSHA started
catering to the wishes of mine owners rather than the safety of the
miners. And it seems to me that FRA is now catering to the wishes of
the railroads. Railroads are now operating with fewer employees and
expecting the same amount of work from them. One person remote control
locomotive assignments are a good example. Those employees are
expected
to accomplish the same amount of work as was previously done by two or
three employees. On several occasions, those employees have told me
that in order to accomplish the work assigned to them, they are forced
to disregard FRA and railroad safety rules. I have also been told that
their managers place a target on their backs if they do try to follow
all of the rules and consequently can't finish the work that was
assigned to them. And if they get caught breaking a rule, they are
usually disciplined and sometimes terminated. From the discussions I
have had with engineers and trainmen, work morale is very bad.
Yardmasters have also complained to me about how they are treated and
talked to by the trainmasters they work for. Unfortunately, those in
FRA Headquarters and Regional offices don't seem to realize what
really goes on in railroad yards. They seem to believe that the
employees are always responsible for injuries and accidents, and that
the railroads are doing all they can to prevent those occurrences.
Yes,
employees are often at fault when injuries and accidents occur, but
the
pressure railroads place on them for production and the movement of
trains is also part of the equation. And, placing profits ahead of
expenditures for safety improvements, including equipment and track
repairs, also enters into that equation. These problems have existed
since the first rails were laid, and is why the FRA Office of Safety
exists today. Unfortunately the FRA Office of Safety now seems to be
catering to the railroads' desire for production, movement of trains
and profits, instead of enforcing safety regulations to protect
railroad employees and the general public.

FRA INSPECTOR

When I was first hired we were told in training class that we were not
supposed to stay after work when we were outlawed to complete the on
board for the company. This electronic devise reports the work that we
SUPPOSIDLY DO to the billing department for CSX. We have a
trainmaster(Fister) who has been making us stay and report work after
we outlaw.  I was told it was their responsibility to complete this. He
says since it is not actually doing train work so we can. We get
overtime while we stay and complete the thing so some dont care about
it, but if its a violation of hours of service I dont want to get
caught up in this mess. Whats the rule on this. How about reporting
that you have pulled cars from an industry which you know you haven't
just to get it to billing. If we go back to get the cars the next day
and they derail all over the place and its enough damage to be
reportable to the FRA will we be charged for lying on the onboard. What
if the car needs to be shopped for repairs and the commodity isn't
delivered in time and csx charges the customer for work we never did?
We are being made do this as well but I bet your bottom dollar the TM
will NEVER admit he told us to do this.  What would you do about this? 
Im not the only one starting to get concerned about this! Why doesn't
CSX pay better attention to this stuff going on or are they just in it
up to their knees! Do they harass the supervisors to get customer
serviced on time just so they can get that service star award? Whats
the big deal with this award anyway. Do they get grants or money for
the award?

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,

replace you if you are the only one left on that engine?  How will
management treat you without a powerful union?  How powerful will your
union be if they get rid of 30 to 50 percent more of the work force? 
Will you even have a union then?  How much worse can the availability
policy get?  Will FMLA be available for you then or will these
companies use it against you?  

Seriously.  Ask yourself these questions fellow union members.  If you
can accept things the way they are then I guess you like being
manipulated and treated like a modern day slave.  The only difference
is maybe you get okay benefits and a decent wage just to feed back to
the system itself.  What is happening right now is NOT okay.  And if
you think it is maybe YOU are the problem.  

Now we've got maybe ONE opportunity to make things better for
ourselves.  I hope you do the right thing if you get the chance.

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.

SickOf CM,

   I'll bet those CMC callers and Managers are afraid to call anyone
now since you "Put them on Notice". Damnit man. I wish you wouldn't
have done that, they are all trembling in their shoes now and will be
afraid to call anyone for work.  

   Seriously dude, do you really think a crew caller or CMC Manager
gives two big shits about being turned in to the Ethics Hotline for
running the roster. You apparently have a very high opinion of yourself
to think that your gonna make a difference. Who do you think reviews the
cases called into the Ethics Hotline? It damned sure isn't a neutral
party that makes decisions that are Labor friendly.

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.

IN NO EVENT WILL AND ENGINEER BE REQUIRED TO ACCEPT AN ASSIGNMENT THAT

ARE OBVIOUSLY NOT QUALIFIED TO HANDLE THE JOB. THE ABILITY TO SUPERVISE
YOUR CREW CALLERS AND THE INABILITY TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE PROPERLY
TRAINED SPEAKS FOR ITSELF WHEN OUR PHONE RING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE
NIGHT BECAUSE YOU HAVE ORDERED THEM TO GET A WARM BODY AT NO COST. DO
NOT DENY THIS. SEVERAL CREW CALLERS HAVE TOLD US THIS. THEY ARE NOT AS

I'm hoping Hunter Harrison comes in and kicks out Mikey and Cindy on

positions based on  their ability rather than the current regime that
promotes people based on their skin color or other minority status. CSX
loves the positive publicity of hiring minorities and promoting them to
positions that they fail miserably in.  Take a look at Queens Gate and
Chicago for example.  These folks couldn't manage a Lemonade stand in
Siberia much less run a Railroad.

Did any of you read the latest rag mag from the greatlakes division we
just got in the mail.  Try reading the article under "Avon keeps pace
with business". Anyone know who this fletcher guy is that said the
train crews pick up the engines in the receiving yard???

Does he not know that we usually get them at the servicing fuel pad and
if not there somewhere where they have parked them after another crew
brings them in bypassing the fuel pad so they wont be held for
inspection or cleaning?
Yeah, sometimes the crews get them in the receiving yard because they
hand them right off to another crew when they are running behind
schedule and again don't want them held up for inspection. 

Not sure this guy knows whats going on with the power or he's just to
afraid to tell it like it really is!

Looks like Avon is taking another hit. They are supposed to be doing
away with 3rd shift in the engine repair shop. Guess they plan on
dragging the broke down junk to another terminal to be fixed. Its just
going to get worse. The writing was on the wall when they started
running the inbound engines around the engine house so they wouldn't
be held up for cleaning and inspections. Cant count how many by pass
the house to be parked somewhere else in the yard for another road crew
to take without ever being seen by the engine/fuel pad. Pretty soon they
wont even be cleaned. Just pulled out on the mainline to be fueled and
not cleaned or taken care of until the crews shop them for being filthy
dirty and the toilets stinking to high hell.  Wonder how long before
they close us down all together!

Let me enlighten you! Some of us paid for our damn jobs. Forked out

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.

Rumors through the grapevine has it that several upper level managers
are telling subordinates that they are getting a 125% bonus for their
performance. Now this seems a little high and 100% would be more
believable, but if something else is getting ready to go down then we
can understand why. Could it be a replacement for buy outs? It's also
being said that there will be several more divisions cut and merged
with the rest left standing. This should save them thousands of dollars
if they cut out unnecessary spending such as safety returns money and
middleman management. Sounds like someone is getting their pockets
stuffed full for something!

The knuckle on the first car did break off resulting in a derailment. 
The explosion was a result of a car being placed the seventh position

The consist manafest was in the first engine.
The railroad is a private industry with the FRA having jurisdiction
over the train and rail right- of- way only.
The resulting damages to other property is a civil matter in which the

I took a look see on the web of pics taken of details.  Most all the
major derails show the wheels  fell off and laying everywhere.  I
looked at the detail in Md where a CSX train hit a truck then derailed
and exploded.  If you want a look see go to the video taken from two
cameras mounted on a building.  One camera show the train hitting the
truck and no derail. The other camera picks up the train as it comes
out from behind bushes.  This video shows the numer one car tilted to
the left and a huge plume of ballast coming from under the car where
the wheel had fell off. You can see the wheels go under the car and hit
the second car then it derails and catches fire. After bout ten minutes
the ccars explodes like a bomb.  The first car had to disconnect cause
the engines and crew were safely way down the track.  The engines and
crew were safe so what's wrong with that.

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

As far as we know there is still the 180 day charge free forgiveness
period that allows one minor offense to be dropped when assessing
progressive disciplne. However, do not forget the loophole. If it is a
serious offense charge management is claiming it must be 180 days of a
solid half. In other words as example, If you are charged for a serious
offense in January your 180 days do not start until July. We have been
trying to get this cleared up with the unions but haven't had any

Feel for ya man for being terminated for 4 Minor (Chickenshit)
violations. A lot of the minor violations don't have damned thing to
do with safety or production. There are good managers that don't
really enforce these minor rule violations and then they are the ones
that write everyone up for everything.  Anyone who has ever worked at
Avon has experienced this. 
    There's one POS manager that comes to mind. His incompetent fat
ass has put a banner on the wrong main line twice that has resulted in
crews striking a banner on clear signals.  What happened to him,
absolutely nothing.  These managers are fucking Skum, I have personally

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
maintanence and save money.Run them trains full speed again on the

Re:  SP/UP Engineer

I stand amended on my description of dynamic braking. Your explaination
is much better than my own.  For the lay people, what the engineer is
describing can be compared to a " Jake brake on a tractor railer
truck". On a truck the engine is shut offf which creates resistance to
the wheels causing a braking effect. This is why you hear the loud
engine noise.  On a train, resistance is applied to the engine wheels
by using the traction motors to reverse the electro-magnetic force. The
Diesel engine turns the generator applying electrical power to the
traction motors, which turn the engine wheels.
Very knowledgeable post and the people thank you for your input.
Can we have your evaluation on the wheels falling off the train please?

Dynamic braking:  The generator and traction motor is reversed putting
resistance on the engine wheels..................................

You’re very ignorant about how dynamic brake system works. Nothing is
reversed. Basically, the traction motors become generators, you apply
more excitation to the generator field which makes the generator hard
to turn and slows the train/engine, you’re creating a stronger magnetic
field.

Train derailment open discussion and debate.

Derailments can be minor or catastophic events that have existed
unabated since the first railroads. We have regulators  (FRA) and
investigators (NTSB) who should have at least, some effect on reducing
these accidents.  Apparently these agencies could use our expertise to
reduce the number of derailments nationwide while reducing the dangers
posed to the public and train crews.

I'll open this discussion with a commonly used phrase in my
department: " How do you stop a train? Answer: The wheels fall off".
One may conclude this to be a rediculous statement, right? Actually
there are three types of braking systems on a train-
Dynamic braking:  The generator and traction motor is reversed putting
resistance on the engine wheels.
Emergency Air brakes:  Each car has brakes that are kept open by
compressed air.  When the air is dumped, brakes engage. The air
compression is maintained by hoses connecting each car in series.
Wheels fall off:  When the emergency brakes are applied the entire
consist weight is shoved into the back of the engines resulting in the
first car " jack knifing" turning sideways on the track.  When the
trailing cars start piling up the train is stopped.
So what about the wheels falling off?  The car knuckle is open at the
top allowing the car to disconnect from the engine or, the knuckle
breaks off.  At this point the jack knifed cars lift and the wheels
fall off.  Do we want a disconnect car with the wheels still on it,
running down a city?  
Another money saver in the wheels falling off is putting the derailed
cars back on the tracks.  A crane simply picks up the wheels and place
them back on the track.  Then the rail car is lifted and placed back on
its wheels.  Unfortunately, some of the cars used to stop the trains is
filled with explosive or, hazardous material primed to kill unexpected
first responders or, a towns people.
Oh! I forgot the proof or facts. Look at most major derailments and you
will see wheels scattered everywhere.

of the best outlets for employees to handle problems the company
continues to ignore or just brushes under the rug. It has been awhile
since real serious discussions have been viewed here. Either crews are
just tired of nothing getting done and are giving up or they are
quietly relying on their union representatives to handle things. Not
sure but it is a real shame they can't see the advantage this site

CSX LOVER

First, you better brush up on your grammar. Second you have absolutely
no idea how this website works. There was a very good reason that CSX
came after the owner of this website when it first came out. BAD
PUBLICITY!  Bad publicity is a major thorn in the side for companies
such as CSX. They solicit a lot of support for the company. They troll
for backers on a daily basis. If you were able to access the employee
gateway you would be amazed at the amount of "pat me on the back"
advertising that is done. Now, don't take us wrong. There are some
good programs that the company gets involved with but there are also
those things that are a total waste of resources and funds just to wine
and dine prospective backers.

Now as far as the company not caring what is posted on this site, once
again you are ignorant. The FRA,OSHA and other railroads along with
customers review this site everyday. CSX has a legal/public affairs
group that is responsible for monitoring this site. They look for
information that is posted that may be considered a breach of private
information, insider tips, illegal and "Squirrely" activity, whistle
blowing, embarrassing but true facts and bad publicity. CSX is
federally regulated but they are not a federal agency. It is a
public/private corporation. They must follow at state laws and
regulations. 
There have been several operating and safety practices that have been
changed over the years because people used this site to introduce the
facts and had healthy debates. When the employee's air such problems
on this site and the facts are true and can not be covered up the
company has no choice but to visit these problems and do what is
necessary to see that the discussion is closed.
A few examples would be the problems with dangerous filthy lodging. Bad
lighting and vehicle conditions. Bogus operating rules that can easily
be disputed as utterly ridiculous or mechanically impossible. CSX does
not want bad publicity. They would rather spend a million to keep
things quiet than have to deal with concerned supporters.
There is also the issue of the FRA reading anything that may be a
serious federal offense that may cost them a hefty fine. They love to
snoop around the yards but they don't always see what is right under
their noses.  If you get hired and are called to attend the csx
training camp, then I have a few suggestions for you.
One, check that suck up to the company attitude at the door. There is
nothing more that a TM or RF hate more than a snitch or suck up. They
will view you as nothing more than a piece to use to do their dirty
work then dispose of you. They have no respect for people like you.
They pick and chose who they want to stalk and fire. If you rat on the
ones they are trying to protect, you will be a problem. They also view
you as a threat to their own jobs.
Second, KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT and be a quiet little boy and do as your
told even if it brakes FRA laws until you are officially marked up. You
don't want to be a target your first 60 days. All your complaints will
fall on deaf ears! If you think your union will protect you THINK
AGAIN! They will already know what your reputation is and they will do
what it takes to protect their seasoned old heads over your butt!
Third, don't piss off your LC because when the company denies claim
after claim for pay that is legally yours by union agreement we
guarantee you that your cases will be set on the back burner.
And the most important one of all...... If you make it long enough to
get to 100% pay and accept the fact that you will have no personal life
or quality time with your family and you start making more money than
you ever have and you become ADDICTED to the pay check, BRING YOUR BUTT
BACK TO THIS SITE AND APOLOGIZE TO EVERYONE that you offended on here by
telling them to quit after they have spent years out here working so
much they don't even know what day it is anymore and live to deposit
the pay check to keep the family and the little wife happy because they
are never at home. OH, and come down off that pride too and have the
balls to post some of the violations and intimidation that you will
encounter as well, because you will!

you have absolutely no idea what goes on out here in our business. You

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

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

A combined unity of TE&Y employees with LEVERAGE can overcome any

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.

HI:
     In the past, at holidays, some divisions and locations would have
holiday assistance (food pantrys, clothing drives, help-a-family,
etc.)Typically the Great Lakes Division would refuse to support or
permit ANYTHING, whereas other divisions would slip in a few charitable
activities. Anybody know of ANY activities on ANY CSX location, and also
anything at anyplace on the Great Lakes Division. Just curious since it
seems we have been going down hill FOR YEARS in so many ways.

Cond. 30 
spoken like a true management man! Read the post again. Pay attention.
Was involved in something much larger than you. Far from voted out.
Just changed careers. Telling people they have rights and power always
scares managers too death. So instead of spouting off get off your
knees and do whats right for your employees or expect your job to get
rougher! Upper management doesnt care about the shot rolling down hill!

EX-Rep

That is somewhat right. The problem that exist and I am talking about
this crappy ass Smart Union run by a bunch a vaginas that are taking
money from the CARRIER to sell and fire out memebers and I am speaking
about here with the UP.  We need to lobby Sen. to bring back the
"STRIKE" clause and show that we are not going to take it in the ass
anymore from the existing carriers and get rid of thses low life
officers in OUR so called UNION. They haven't done anything and
harresment and imindataion is high and going strong.


Lets get that going and get this back to US, The memebers.

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.

Bendover

Just so you know, the company has been trying to call back furloughed
employees but they are not answering the calls. The rumor is that about
68% of those called are not coming back. They found work else where. Can
you blame them? They saw the work environment and the bad moral along
with crews constantly fighting for their pay they are entitled to per
their union agreements. As posted earlier, when a crew goes out and
drags in train after train beyond the agreed miles and instead of
getting a second pay ticket like they should they combine them, it does
nothing but send a message that the crews are noting more than slaves to
be beaten and whipped. The crews NEED TO SLOW DOWN! The old heads that
stood the ground steadfast and refused to be intimidated by management
are just about gone so its up to the newer younger employees to start
paying attention to the writing on the wall and grow a pair. USDOT will
have to take notice when things come to a stand still on the rails.

As for the incredibly lengthy trains, the crews have the power to take
care of that. The FRA is well aware that there is problems with the
EOT's working properly on these trains. Unfortunately you have crew
members who ignore the FRA law and continue to run track speed after
they lose communication or FR no com. This NEEDS TO STOP!  When the eot
and htd lose communication the train is to be reduced to 30 mph. NO
EXCEPTIONS! It doesn't matter if it is lost for 30 seconds. Every time
it fails the engineer should be reducing speed and it should be reported
to the dispatch center that the train is too long for the communication
to work properly. The conductor should be telling the engineer to
reduce speed and to follow the law. 
They want things fixed and they cry but they don't do anything to make
the changes. Everyone wants a quick trip and doesn't care about the
damages it does as a whole. when the crews constantly ignore
opportunities to take a stance for change they hurt everyone else in
the craft. The unions aren't going to help you. You have to help
yourself.  if you are an engineer follow the laws. Do what is expected
by the law. If management intimidates you for doing so report it to the
FRA. The USDOT has a hotline to report serious problems with the
movement of freight across the country. Get involved.

Don't complain about Robert Frulla cause if you do then the piece of
garbage will get promoted again. He just about got his stupid self
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..

CSX employees are the lowest paid employees of all class 1 railroads. A
basic day should be around $350 on a basic day due to all the horse
crap that we deal with. Our work load has doubled in the past couple of
years do they the increasing the size of the trains and them running
