CSX-Sucks!

Courtesy and Professional CSX Style

You'll do what yer told, you little &%#$@!!!

    CSX likes to picture itself as a company where all of it's employees, customers, and contractors are treated with the highest levels of courtesy, professionalism, and respect. The employees, customers, and contractors know differently....



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.

We don't have increased track speed in the yard on our division. They
threw a few speed increases out on a few tracks but cancelled them. its
still 10 MPH in the yards and on tracks other than main and signaled
tracks.  If you read the rules it states very clearly what you are
supposed to do. 

For those of you out in the public who might be interested in what our
rule says and how fast we can go here it is.

Trains using other than main or signaled track MUST MOVE at a speed
that permits stopping within half the range of vision. short of a
train, a car, on-track equipment, an obstruction, s stop signal, a
derail, or an improperly lined switch and MUST NOT EXCEED 10 mph!

It is up to the sole discretion of the the engineer at what speed he
wants to travel to safely move the train. Blind curves, rain, fog, yard
lights, workers light, foggy windows, no mirrors for use, condition of
the locomotives all play a part in the engineers decisions.

It has already been discussed with the FRA whether or not an engineer
could be written up for moving slower than designated speed and the
answer was NO! NO! NO! if the engineer feel that the speed he has
chosen is to move the train safely. The company can not tell any
engineer "You will run track speed and if you cant then we will write
you up for delay of train"!  
As for the head hunting, its the same crap HH did on the other
railroads.  He will stop at nothing to increase the bottom line in the
expense book and increase the profits.   There is a big difference in
saving money verses making money. HH isn't making money. He is saving
money right now and only because he has cut the workforce. No way in
hell he is making money with the customer base he has lost. He is using
his own investments to fill the gaps. Everyone knows how to cook the
books. If he has it his way everyone who is left standing will be doing
the work of 2 men thus saving him millions in expenses. Problem is that
humans aren't built that way and cant be expected to do the work of 2
people all the time. Doesn't matter how much of raise he offers
everyone. We average 27 bucks and hour. He wants each man to do the
work of two then he better be offering 65 an hour. The cost of two men
and the cost of wear and tear on the body! Muscle and back injuries and
fatigue. 
They had a name for a man like that in old days.... they were called
Plantation slave owners.  Used their mules like a dog until they were
worn out then discarded them for younger stock. Get ready for it. 
You take a hourly wage increase and you better be able to work the
labor or two men. If not you will be gone!

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!

One good thing about railway jobs is they can't move the railway to

all the manufacturing jobs. And it cost big money to train a

Retired after thirty five years my last five years was with Hh. I see a
lot of articles that the union is not doing much at CSX. Maybe so the
only thing they can do is submit paper after an incident and wait for a
response from company,to act. I hear a lot of hourly wage talk for
engineers. The company can propose,the pay change to union heads at
which time has to be presented to the membership to vote. That goes
with all the changes to the contract. Democracy at its best.what I
found working on the railway was the biggest whiners never attend d
union meetings or voted on anything. But when the result came out they
cried all the time. It's your railway job and your union. Now is the
time to get involved and get educated what is going on.

OK OK


First off let me begin saying to you that NO ONE WANTS OR NEEDS YOUR
FILTHY FOUL MOUTH AND ISSUES WITH ANGER MANAGMENT SPILLED ALL OVER THIS
WEBSITE.  I can guarantee you that the webmaster(Atom Smasher) wont find
what you posted appropriate either because you have not posted anything
helpful or productive just filthy and hateful.  Get some help!!!


?????? 

To answer your question that no one seems to understand, YES you are
correct. As of close today CSX stock is valued at $52.12. That is what
it would cost you to buy 1 share if someone was willing to sell it. You
would incur fee's of course from your broker or who ever handled the
transaction for you. Same goes if you were to sell 1 share. I
understand exactly where you are coming from. You are probably not a
long term investor and only look at making a quick buck. Buy low sell
high.  Invest was correct in stating that the shares of Hershey are
worth more if you need a quick buck due to some hardship and you were
able to find someone who wanted to buy it for 110.00 a share. Most
people don't understand the long term investments of buying stock.
Most the people only look at how many shares the company has given them
and how much they can sell them for if they could and need hard cash
now. 
Do not think CSX is going to make you millions just because stock
prices are rising.  The only reason it has risen is because Hunter
Harrison attached his name to it and has a tract record of bringing
companies out of the dirt and into record profit highs. 
Stock goes up and down based on numerous factors and the rumor mill and
big shot promotions will always create a feeding frenzy. 
Its one big gamble. He has to put his money where his mouth is and
it's just to early in the game. You cant bring a company like CSX out
of the dirt by reputation alone even though it brought the stock prices
up!

WAKE UP!


$54 dollars a share is NOT SHIT...Jesus people. Hershey's is 110.00. A
damn candy company is worth twice what csx is. Take a good look at the
other railroads. CSX is chump change. Look at other companies in this
country. Hell there are more candy companies that have better stock
than CSX!   All the stupid stockholders have this pipe dream that csx
will eventually be as successful as the other class one railroads.  You
have got to be totally retarded if you think so. You have to treat your
customers right. You have to keep promises that you make. You have to
DELIVER!  The only reason CSX has made it as long as they have without
going belly up is because they have outside investors keeping their
heads above water. They done nothing for the last 3 months but destroy
customer satisfaction and reliability. The stock isn't going down
because someone is playing the market and the media along with wall
street. Again, 54$ is not crap for a class 1 railroad!

From a local newspaper today:

Have you wondered why in Toledo you wait so long for trains? I can tell
you why. CSX is under new managers.

Their main goal is to use the least manpower. That is why you see 200
plus cars.

CSX is run by a robber baron E. Hunter Harrison. His main goal is to
“cut the fat.”

A good idea if you’re a stockholder. Not a good idea if you’re an
employee. Building trains this size, should be regulated.

The local political factions are more than willing to take political
action committee money and ignore the facts.

Men are losing there jobs. It all fits into the fact that Mr. Harrison
couldn’t care less about local life. After all, look at his property
for sale. $50,000 chandeliers for his horse barns in Florida. Is the
state of Indiana this scared of a railroad baron?

One comment on here mentioned that it has been quiet...that's because
the stock has been going up and the STB had to move their hearing. When
money talks...everyone shuts up. The stock just closed at $52.48 on
Friday and HH is patting himself on the back.  See...PSR is working. 
The proof is in the stock.  Who is complaining now? Customers?  Who
cares!  The stock is climbing just like HH said it would and he will be
the big hero. Our savior. 

 Lives destroyed, customers lost, a railroad in shambles...none of the
matters because it is the almighty dollar that is controlling HH,
Mantle Ridge, The Board and the rest of the greed that has consumed
CSX.  HH is a puppet being controlled by a hedge fund and big money -
and they will get their money back come hell or high water (hell is
already running the company and high water just blew through so.....). 
They will continue to cut jobs, continue to cut your pay, continue to
cut benefits, continue to pit you against one another until they have
wrought every penny out of CSX and then...they will dump it or find a
way to merge it so they make more money. 

It has been said on here many times but...it is ALL about money. 
People and lives don't matter anymore. Morale and job
satisfaction...who cares?  Workers despise each other and
management...good!  The plan is working!  Looking over your shoulder at
every turn?  HH says that's the way it should be. By the time HH is
gone, every worker at CSX will have a legit PTSD claim.  Hopefully he
is gone sooner rather than later for the sake of everyone who has
worked hard to build CSX and for all of those who lost their jobs and
want to see him pay for what he has done to them and their families.

Phyco logic warfare on the union membership. Hh wants to cause as much
termoil to employees as possible. If he can get the union membership
fighting with each other and reps. It takes focus off him some what.
Senior guys start resenting newer employees getting better jobs,and so
on. It's all part of his plan he did it at CN and CP wait till he cuts
employees so deep that all office staff will be trained to run trains.
You can google that on cp office staff running trains. He knows that
really hurts membership. And your union can't do a hell of a lot. Till
after the fact,then they can just put in a grievance and wait for it to
be heard by an arbitrator. It's frustrating but this will keep
happening till Hh is gone and then common sense might be return to CSX.
Seen all this play out at cp. Creal thinks he is running cp like the
military but contracts are coming up so he has to soften his stance
with union. It's all about controll and breaking you down one at a
time,then reprogramming your mind to think,Hh is the greatest. Myself I
hate the fucker for the families he affected .

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!

Legal   

What you should have done is to advise "DAVE" if he/she is aware of
violations of federal law then it is his/her duty to report it.
Willingly  and knowingly holding back information of someone committing
a federal offense makes that party just as guilty. 

Dave....if you know of such offenses then it is your obligation as a
U.S. citizen to notify the proper authorities. If you are afraid for
some reason such as legal suits filed against you by csx then you can
always send all the proof that you have to both union internationals by
means of certified/registerd mail. That way there is proof you sent it

You see what Hh is doing to CSX he gets these managers to go out and
fire who ever they want. One less body helps get his operating ratio
down. And brings stock price up,but when they cut so deep that they
have trouble crewing trains. He just fills the spots with management.
Another thing all the people that are fired will go threw the process
to get there jobs back and most will. With back pay and benefits. Hh
will be long gone when a lot of these hearings happen. So he does not
care how many people get fired. And csx. is going to have to make all
employees whole again at a big expense. Again not Hh problem,he wants a
high stock price then they will all cash in and run. Hh is getting away
with firing people,but in the end CSX is not.

You are 100% right.  This no napping issue was brought to the FRA's
attention when it first came out and they claimed they didn't know a
thing about the rule change. We asked them if we needed to file
complaints with the fatigue specialist and the office in Chicago said
no that they would look into it.  So far not a word has been heard from
anybody in the FRA. No one in either union has said anything about
taking this insane rule change to the mat with HH.  So in the mean time
it is suggested that everyone and we mean EVERYONE  take the safest
course of action and follow the previous rule if you are tired as hell
and do not feel rested.  Take notes of every time you are woke up in
the middle of the night by crew callers running the rosters to fill
jobs because of man power shortages. Some people have reported their
phones ringing over a half dozen times through out the nite. They know
the calls are not for them. They know what trains are scheduled on
their pools.  Not only are they woke up continuously but so is the rest
of their family. If you need to rest you are empowered to take the
safest course of action.  If you tell crew management that you cant
take your call because you are tired as hell from being woke up all
night they will charge you for refusing to take the call and pull you
out of service.  They created the situation that you are in. Make notes
of every time they do it.   Take your nap!

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.

If your streets are closed due to the weather and you can not get out
and your company does not believe you, you can call the state police
and request they send someone to get you because the railroad is
denying you the right to stay off the roads because you must move us
commerce freight. If they can not get you a ride then you call the
railroad back and tell them to call you some railroad transportation.
They have shuttle services for you I believe? If the state police order
everyone to stay off the roads the railroad does not have the authority
to break state law. They are federally regulated but they are not
federally owned. They can not break state laws and put their employers
in danger. Some companies/ business are exempt such as state and
federal prisons if they have shortages of staff but that is due to the
extreme need of safety in protecting citizens from possible harm.  Good
chance the state police will laugh when you ask them for a ride or you
will be disciplined for not showing up but you need to do it anyway.
They will have it on report and if you need it later to fight the
charges you can get a statement from them.

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.

The railway had its own culture for over a hundred years. There where
many specials crafts and different types of jobs. At one time
management respected employees and the work they did. After the
computer and video cameras came in that all seem to go down hill.  I
can remember when the big shots came into town and they made there
rounds to shake everyone's hand and give out some credit. But now days
management have lost that human connection. It can all be done on
computer. Upper management don't want to even know your name anymore.
They just want spred sheets and bonuses. And who ever stands in the way
of there bonus they try to make life rough for those people. Once robots
take over they will. Be in there own element. No people skills is the

Here is what you people don't understand. An employee does not have to
do anything really wrong to get pulled out of service or fired. Think
of it this way your work ethic was good till Hh came along. All of a
sudden it's not and your sitting at home. The company knows you will
most likely get your job back threw arbitration.  But the name of the
game is for you to run your ass off so you think you not are next to
get fired or pulled out of service. Hh did the same thing at the last
railroad companies he was CEO at. Your union can not do nothing about
it till after the fact. Like representing you at arbitration hearing.
This is your new reality while Hh is CEO. It's a game for him he's
already been paid and the more he increases the value of csx stock.
That is more money in his pocket.

will work all the numbers to get stock value up. That is his goal and
loyalty to share holders. He could care a less about employees. The
people he is empowering to fire people will get fired in time. In Hh
eyes you are all just the bottom feeders on the food chain. If your
number does not get pulled ,consider yourself lucky. He has done the

 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!

Carman here,I feel the only time a crew should have to change a knuckle
is on the road. If mechanical staff can't get to them. The lock lifter
and thrower could be broken also. Which crews are not familiar with. Any

Carman at cp with company running long trains they broke knuckles like
crazy. When we did our train inspection under blue flag protection. We
had to look threw the hole to inspect inside of knuckle. If we found
any cracks we had to record car number. We supplied the knuckles and
the conductor had to change out all the broken knuckles by himself
because we could not work on open unprotected track. Conductor changed
a dozen or more per departing train. Company felt this would solve pull
apart on the road. A lot of times they put blame on hogger for being to

Brother carman you are doing right thing by following there orders.
Record train symbol track you are working, Start and finish times. And
supervisor that told you to do it this way. Give a copy to your union
and keep copy at home in a binder. They pay your wage so you have to do
what they say even with you knowing it's wrong. It's there way to get
trains moving faster and to cut carman jobs. Do not protest to
supervisor let the union rep. Protest and it is up to the union to give
information to government inspectors.  Something will happen sooner or
later. Pretty hard to see cracked couplers etc.  From inside a truck.So
with these long trains they will pull apart on the road and try to blame
carman for it. Cover your ass all of you. It's the blame game and they
will try and blame the carman. Safety first my ass.

They are driving us down one side and expecting us to inspect the cars
at the same time we are checking the set brakes. We always had to walk
it and were told no vehicles but guess that ok now if you drive slow
enough to be able to see defects or damage or other stuff you are
supposed to inspect on the pre inspection. The problem is they aren't
letting us inspect the other side until it is pulled out on the roll
by. That's not what the FRA rules book says you can do.  Guess there

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.

To csx Carmen when a train came into yard that had to be switched. The

it is now Carmans job. Also with thirty second test and inspect,each
terminal was given a different colour chalk. We had to put chalk mark
on coupler or striker casting to show you inspected it. We where given
two minutes to change break shoe. They changed CIM when you entered all
your work for the shift Into computer for 8 hour shift. All your work
had to show 8 hours of productivity,it is new system and really sucks.
They made lots of changes for mechanical dept. I was told that with

A CP guy mentioned on here that HH ordered 30 second inspections on
cars when doing test. There are a few TM saying you don't have to
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

HH is winning the information war (see article below)!  He will continue
to reduce assets, reduce head count, sell off line segments, property,
terminals and push his vision and ideas down through the CSX
organization and out into the media.  As long as the board supports him
nothing will change.  This is the same playbook he used at CP and CN.  I
would like to believe it will be different this time, however I do not
believe it will, it will simply be more painful for everyone at CSX. 
The sad truth is a lot of good people will lose their job.  

Labor leadership appears to have a policy of appeasement with HH and
concerned on with the long-term, however, once autonomous trucks become
acceptable, how long before there are one man crews or in some cases no
crews.  

Remember the STB hurdle/requirements for any new class 1 merger, quite
a different set of requirements versus the CSX&CR, NS&CR, UP&SP and
BN&ATSF mergers.  It may be HH's biggest challenge.  

Stay focused and safe.

Progressive Railroad Article today

CSX has made "very good progress" in its transition to a precision
scheduled railroading model, with the railroad returning to a "normal
operating rhythm," President and Chief Executive Officer E. Hunter
Harrison announced today.

Harrison is now confident many of the service problems recently
reported by CSX customers "are behind us," according to a CSX press
release.

"Fluidity in our terminals largely has been restored and we are
appropriately resourced to continue making progress. Car dwell has
improved from week to week for the last five weeks, and system-wide
velocity is increasing," said Harrison. "I am confident that as CSX
continues to implement the precision scheduled railroading model, it
will provide profound and lasting benefits to customers, employees and
shareholders."

CSX's progress on its operational restructuring also was addressed
this morning by Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer
Frank Lonegro at Cowen and Co.'s 10th Annual Global Transportation
conference in Boston.

In light of CSX's operating challenges in July and August, the company
has refined its 2017 full-year guidance from an operating ratio in the
mid-60s to an operating ratio around the high end of the mid-60s, and
earnings per share growth from around 25 percent to a range of 20
percent to 25 percent, in each case after excluding restructuring
charges, said Lonegro, according to the press release.

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
can to keep the paper trails piling up. Don't back off on this. Now is
the time to support your agreement. The union's can't do anything if
you sit there with your mouth closed and act like a whipped pup.

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.

CSX is way too large to merge with another class I railroad. The enemy
you have made in your minds is hunter harrisson. The real enemy is the
people behind him. Hilal and akman, and their hedgefund cronies. One
unalienable rule in investigations has always been,,,follow the
money...who benefits. ask yourself some other questions....how much
would warren buffet pay for everything from birmingham east along the
southern coast...The ports at new orleans and wilmington,,,jacksonville
etc...BN would become the southern coastal trans continental railway.
What would UP be willing to pay for the middle....Chicago east....the
ports of new port news and maryland.   What would CN be willing to pay
for the northern corridor everything from the canadian border south to
marylend....6 months ago the STB would have never entertained such an
idea......The rules for parceling out these routes one at a time are
very differant than a merger. You would have the top two rail carriers
now running coast to coast and one major head ache out of the way.
Hilal will get paid,,one way or another,,,we had all better hope and
pray for hnter harrison and his plan to work,,,because if it doesnt
that is exactly where we will be....and if you think akman and hilal
dont have a mergers and acquisitions team working on this very scenario
right now...
incidentily cindy sanborn would leave with north of a billion dollars
and most likely a board seat on of the acquiring carriers.
Fruila would leave a multi millionaire and most likely board seat.
commen sense conclusion....Harrisson is not our enemy, hes whats
standing between us and  our REAL enemy.

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.

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.

I retired after thirty five years as a carman. I told the new guys that
the only reason we have jobs here inspecting trains is government
rules. The railroads have tried for years to get inspections from a
1000 miles to 1500. Miles if the rr gets there way our terminal  will
just be a crew change off point. And the mechanical will be gone. And
we all know how much control big companies have over the government. We
go on strike in no time we are order d back to work by government. I
really feel sorry for these young people coming into work force. All
the manufacturing jobs have been given to Asia. All the politicians
sold us out. Look at Detroit all those jobs went to Mexico and
overseas. Haley Davidson had to put on there bikes,assembled in USA the
bike is built in Asia. But with harley name you pay 15000.00 more for
the bike. We are a very stupid bunch to keep voting in these
politicians,that just fuck us good and we vote them back in. I give
trump credit for trying to get jobs back. This nafta agreement will be
interesting. We owe china 1.8 trillion dollars.

years you can get a trade,from most trade schools. With artificial

No one can say they didn't see this mess coming a long time ago. Your
UTU and BLE general chairs saw this coming and no matter what kind of
propaganda they put out they work for HH and his regime using your
monthly dues. I guess I'm saying prepare for your next screwing coming
down the line. Do you guys really think that Hunter would make things so
bad on the customer that the STB had to get involved? Do you guys really
believe that HH is shutting down terminals to save a buck? Does it
really have to be broke down at what's going on here? He's bringing
in the CN calvary by the month, he's organizing CSX like the CN. He's
purposely causing major disruptions and cutting the role because it's
not about CSX failing. The tail here will be how the CEO of CN came
down and had CSX pay him to organize the company in a way that it could
be merger approved. He probably stands to make a bunch of cash out of
this. Why in the hell would a man of his age leave a job to go to
another job just to be compensated the same? Think! By the way the more
terminals he slashes, property sell offs etc makes CSX
smaller.........Less problems with govt intervention. Not only that we
have a POTUS who will be even friendlier to mergers to reduce
competition.

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

Canada here things they pulled out of service for. Not having your vest
zipped to the top. Not having boot laces tied to top of boots,not
wearing safety glasses or glasses lowered on your face. Anything to do
with PPE getting on and off your locomotive or rail cars. Walking foul
of the track. Not checking switch points for debris. No being on time
to work or meetings any little thing you can think of. Took to long in
the shitter. Not talking properly on company radio. Taking to long on
the computer,looking away from train on a pull by inspection. If they
can't find anything they will make it up. If you are pulled out of
service don't panick don't argue with them just go home and get ahold
of your union rep.Managers and supervisors will most likely have there
tape recorder on there phone recording you. They are told to pull out
as many people per month as they can or they get fired. They the
company want to get as many stains on your person file as possible.
That way they can show you have been disciplined many times in the
past. And it helps them fire you down the road. When I was pulled out
of service for next to nothing,the union had me reinstated with back
pay. And they had to remove it from my personal file.  Some managers
where making up failed audits and putting them on employees files. The
union found a 160 failed audits in one terminal that the employees new
nothing about. They have to give you written copy of failed and passed
audits. Retain all documentation that you get from the company. And you
do have the right to review your personal company file. They will get
lower than the lowest just watch.

HE CAN'T SEND A EMPLOYEES LEAGALY HOME FOR NOT WALKING INTO THE
BUILDING WITHOUT HIS VEST ON IF HE WASN'T ON DUTY YET. YOUR ON YOUR
TIME AND NOT CSX'S TIME.IF YOUR ON DUTY AT 1500 AND YOU ARRIVE AND
1455 AND WALK IN HE HAS NO RIGHT TO SEND THE EMPLOYEES HOME. THAT
SHOULD GO TO LABOR RELATIONS AND SHOULD GET BACK PAY. NOTHING MORE THEN
HARASSING A EMPLOYEES TO SET A EXAMPLE. WON'T BE FUNNY WHEN SOMEONE

HUNTER IS PLAYING THE "CUSTOMERS AND THE STB" . HE REOPENED AVON TO
HUMPING . AS SOON AS INDYS BACKLOGGED CARS ARE HUMPED AND SENT OUT HE
WILL GET TO SWITCHING OUT THE CUSTOMERS. THEN THE CUSTOMERS WILL BE
HAPPY AGAIN AND THE STB WILL BACK OFF CSX AND HUNTER. HUNTER MAY WAIT A
WEEK OR TWO OR EVEN A MONTH OR TWO BUT I GUARNTEE HE WILL SHUT AVON DOWN
AGAIN. THEN WE WILL REPEAT THE PROCESS AGAIN. HE WILL KEEP DOING THIS
UNTIL HE SUCCEEDS.  HE WAS QUOTED " I WON'T LEAVE CSX AS A FAILURE"
THE ONLY WAY HE LEAVES CSX IS IF THE CSX BOARD OF DIRECTORS FIRES HIM
OR HE DROPS DEAD FROM HIS HEALTH.

Top RR CEO Salaries:

Hunter Harrison's salary tops all "active" Class I railroad CEO'S
combined...with $84,000,000.00 annually.
Jim Young (deceased) from UP is running a distant second place with
$54,000.000.00* (due annually until age 65). The rumor is that the UP
Corporate was blackmailed for his silence (secrets in his grave) for
running the lucrative drug trains.

Harrison was touted as a rail management genius because of his invention
of a cost-cutting restructuring concept he calls “precision scheduled
railroading”—which at this point appears to be neither precision, nor
scheduled, nor railroading (to paraphrase Voltaire).

Unions have helped so give 'em some slack but they take
advantage also - if\when possible.

The article from warning u,the guy is 100percent right on the money. My
last 4.5 years railroading was having Hh as CEO. Then there was talk at
cp how Hh treated the the employees at cn. We thought good luck trying
that at cp,we will push back. Well all the rumours where true what this
man planned on doing to Cp employees.Everyone got a big surprise,before
hh they had to have cause to fire you or pull you out of service. Like
the guy said in his article they had a quote to fill or the managers
where fired. They violated as many contract rules as possible. There
where over whelming number of people fired that,those cases went in
front of arbitrators first. Most employees where reinstated with back
pay. All other grievences where secondary. Hh will bog down the union
with a train load of cases to be fought out. The unions in Canada did
well for the members. But it took time,which Hh liked. Your going to
have those holy ---- times and not believe what Hh plans on dishing
out. It is like the employees are the enemy of the company. That's how
he treated us up north. Be prepared for the big fights. It is easy to
trash the union which hunter likes you to do. Support your union
because now the reps. Will be tested by Hh and his team. This will
seperate the men from the boys in your union. Help the brother sister
hood out all you can. Be proud people who just want to earn a living
and do the good work you have always done for your company csx. Rome

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!

Canada here again,most people can't be bothered.But every time the
company violates your contract put in a grevience threw your union. A
year or more might pass but chances are your grievences will be heard
and you will be made whole. If you do nothing you will get nothing. If
your mistreated record times dates people involved and the issue. Then
go to your union rep. If he fails to help,file with human rights. The
person that is going to help you most is you. Without a paper trail
from employees it is just hear say. I took my employer to court cost me
lots, of my own money I won my case and they ended up paying my legal
fees in the end. If you do nothing you get nothing. We live in a time
where we want fast fix,or someone else to do the leg work. Stand up for

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.

How about being timed for being in the shitter. It gets dumber and

they do,your stress level is going to be pushed to the limit.

Rd crews need to start showing up for ride at away from home terminal at

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.

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.
May very well end up eating those words too.  Guess we'll see.

As a union member and paid dues for many years. I was told a company has
the right to manage there company as they see fit. The collective
agreement protected workers to a point. Which was suppose to of been
agreed to in good faith by both parties. The company and union,where
the problems lie is the interpretation of the language in the
agreement. For example the company will provide safety equipment when
available. That statement let's the company off the hook. It should
read the company will provide safety equipment. When the company goes
to the table they have there fancy lawyers etc. To include these sucker
words. Some people are elected to the union are clueless. Some union
officials get wined and dined by the company during these talks and
lose focus. It is up to you members to review the contents of the
collective agreement before you vote on it. But you lose sight when the
company throws out a few crumbs to members. Which you think is good and
sign off. Knowledge is power you vote on these agreements make sure you
do your homework. And a union rep. That is not doing his job can be sent

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!

Wait till someone jumps in unit with you guys with a. Clip board and
times everything you do. Or is parked in a truck with binoculars timing
everything you do switching or threw the cameras. Those kind of audits
will happen. And if people are that disfuntional that only ten percent
of managers could do field work. Hh is going to get rid of all the dead
weight. He does not care how long you have worked for the company. He
has a plan and he will role it out and no one will stop him. Trust me

Sickout Sept 2-3. Do it, don't wimp out. We must be united in order to
get this to work. Safety must always be a priority and EHH is going to
cost people their lives for the stakeholders' benefit. This must END.

The concern trolling is helping no one, saying that nothing will work.
That negative attitude does not spark progress.

Managers and office workers are not in physical shape for the RR at
CSX. That's not going to be an equivalent substitute. Maybe 10% are
capable. This isn't Canada.

We must try every possible angle to get rid of EHH if we are going to
come out of this on the other side. He is going to get people killed
because safety is no longer a priority to him.

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!

One thing to think about is if you have wildcat strike or go out for any
other reason. Your just making his case to train office staff and
managers,to get there conductors and engineers certification. He will
justify doing this to the government that if union employees , disrupt
service he has management and other staff to resume service. If there
was a walk out it work cause hardship to csx and customers.  So I would
be careful about talking wildcat strike or what ever.

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.

Lots of good publicity going around for HH.  
The Fortune article. 

His "make nice" letter to the STB about the new field personnel he
has installed to help customers...after he fired many of the people who
knew what was going on and could have avoided a lot of this. He fired
them out of spite and venegance...men and women who have worked 15-20
years with spotless records. Why?  Because he was pissed that CSX
refused his merger offer and now he is hellbent on punishing everyone
he can...except the VP's and above who have golden parachutes so he
can't fire them.. 

And what happens...stock is going up.  Shareholders are happy that
CSX's CEO is looking good to the public and shareholders. Good
publicity is making him out to be the railroad savior. All hail HH. 

No one knows the truth but workers and customers who aren't getting
service. Get the word out there. Stop his publicity machine. The truth
must be shared. Now is the time to be heard. Call reporters. Email.
Keep the pressure on.

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

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

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

Things will get better. Harrison will fail.

We have the same rules in our collective agreement in Canada. No
managers or supervisors where aloud to do our work either. But when hh
took over,he said no one will be sitting at a desk with there feet up.
All managers and supervisors where told to do our work they did and
still are. Hh layed off so many people. That all office staff where
fast tracked to train as conductor and engineers. Managers where
driving the trains with unionized conductor sitting in same cab. The
training time for office staff was cut in half. They had little to no
field experience. Most training was done in a simulator. And approved
by transport Canada. You can google this about office staff running
trains at cprail. What I'm saying and witness is Hh does not care
about union rules and laws. He will do the same thing at csx,just wait
and see. He will do what he wants and deal with grievences later. So
big deal if he has to pay out on some grievences,he knows how long it
takes to get to arbitration. That is why he is braking all the rules.
To over whelm the unions with paper work and hearings. And the cost to
get grievences in front of an arbitrator .I payed my union dues for
thirty five years ,and union did good job. But in the meantime you have
to watch all this unfold before they can react. You are going to get a
lot of surprises from Hh..Just trying to give you people a heads up !

Retired CP

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

Retired CP employee I've seen business admin guys with top marks come
out of university. Hired on to CP 'elite ' team. Hired on as local
managers right out of school. He was one of many CPRAIL's future
shining stars. Then along came HH . In 4.5 years move this guy, $190k a
year, so much that he quit. Now making $45k a year and happy because he
has a regular work life. This is how HH works. He gets his management
out into the field to try to fire as many employees as they can. With
all those people fired it lowers the operating ratio for Wall Street.
Now all the managers think they've done such a great job for HH that
when there is a shortage of crews, they are the ones that will make up
for the shortage of employees. He has only been your CEO for 6 months.
We had him for 4.7 years. You Managers think you are such loyal people
to HH by firing people. Now, this is what is going to happen. Trains
will have to be run and there won't be enough crews and you Managers
are not protected by a Union. He will get you Managers to make up for
the people that have been fired. He'll work you 16 hours a day or
more, 7 days a week. He has not rolled out yet the he's going to abuse
you Managers. You think you are the 'chosen ' ones. If you have any
doubt in this call the boys in Canada to see if I'm bullshitting you.

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!

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

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.

Anyone know if reverse lodging is an agreement in our contract?  I'm
being told as of September 1st that reverse lodging is no longer being
allowed due to excessive time in the hotel compared to the away hotel. 
Was told that HH is eliminating hotel stays anyway so why does it
matter. Well, it matters because since dickhead cut off jobs in my
terminal I can't hold anything ......came from another dick sucker aka

FACTS!

Cut of cars ran out of newly revamped yard(state street) set up for
flat switching. No protection for run out cars  was installed to
protect main line. The crew DID NOT run into the cars as being reported
by the news stations. The crew was given enough warning to get off the
locomotives before they were hit. Facts, not fiction. Thank god the
dispatchers were quick on their feet and were able to tell the crew to
get off otherwise they could have been seriously hurt. No one seems to
know why the news media are reporting this as the train ran into the
cut of cars. This is not true.

The guy that says he is a manager, and runs the railway you are right.
This is what is going to happen mr.manager. When your full of the
koolaid and maybe do some time at hunter camp. Hh will look after you.
He will cut so many employees that you mr.manager will be working 16 or
more hours a day. Seven days a week. And if you complain or have family
problem.  To bad Hh wants bang for his buck you are salaried
employee.So you will end up making about ten dollars an hour. Hh loves
you for that. And if it gets over whelming you can quit. Or you slow
down Hh will see you as not being a team player. You will be fired and
will have to hire a lawyer to try and get pention money from company.

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!

Fortune Magazine piece on HH

http://fortune.com/2017/08/24/csx-hunter-harrison-trains/

Precision Railroading is all about asset & resource reductions. 

That said,  IC, CN & CP were linear RR's and operated in natural
resource rich Canada with only 36 million residents.  CP's average
length of haul under HH was 1,600 miles.  CSX's average length of haul
is 600 and CSX is a network RR. So, as he continues to try to figure it
out, expect the unexpected with HH. 

Come hell or high water, HH believes he will figure out how to make CSX
operations work by continuing to make changes and tweaks till he
believes he has figured it out.  If a manager is not getting it done,
he will have him removed and put someone else in, and he will continue
to do this until he finds one that finds a way to make it work. 
Meanwhile, he will shed the competitive low margin traffic and
eliminate T&E employees.  He will also continue to eliminate
management.

Many unfounded and grossly exaggerated statements have been going

CSX Hawthorne yard in Indianapolis located off of Emerson Avenue is now
shut down after thousands were poured into it for repairs and upgrades
to the tracks, walking stones, switches and buildings. The upgrades
makes it perfect for purchase if your wanting to start something small.
Have heard the INRD railroad is looking to work out a deal. CSX owns
around 82% of the INRD so it would make sense to keep it in house and
profit share but the door is still open for negotiations. Wouldn't

that is what separated the men from the boys. We had cabooses to duck in

thought it was great at first. A lot that got laid off it motivated
them to look for other jobs or go back to school. Younger people today
have more education. And in some cases it is a wake up call to get job

Don't be a dirt bag prick and make shitty comments like that to anyone
who just got furloughed!. No one gives a rats ass about what you did in
1982.  I was there too when everyone got cut. What you failed to see or
learn is that the new guys today have to go through a lot worse than any
of us did to get our damn jobs.  Don't even try to tell me we went
through worse. Yeah we got put on the street. Some of us for years, but
we didnt have to go to some monkey ass horse shit school that didn't
teach us squat then come to work for OJT for months with head hunter
breathing down our necks looking for any little failure they could get
on us before we could get our union status. These kids who are getting
hired today have to deal with more stupid horse shit and blow hard bull
than we ever did. When we were cubs we were worked hard and given shit
but mostly by our hogger or other fireman or who ever we were stuck
with training. These guys got to have eyes in the front and the back of
their heads and a set in their ass so when they bend over they don't
get it up the rear.  I feel sorry for how they are demeaned and treated
like stupid little kids who cant tie their own shoes.  Then after they
go through months of humiliation they get tossed thinking they might
have a chance at a good future for their families because they bring in
some dying old man who tears their lives apart.  I hope they all find a
good job somewhere that they can get their dignity back and start
living with their families again.  As far as I'm concerned they are

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.

HH will relentlessly pursue his goal of reducing assets and that
includes people.  Mantel Ridge won over the majority of the
institutional shareholders to remove Michael Ward and install HH to run
this company.   He has the full backing of the board, and until that
changes we may continue to expect the unexpected from HH.    I suspect
an additional 1,500 to 2,500 T&E jobs will be eliminated along with an
additional 300 to 700 in management cuts will be made as well.  

He will continue to push back on the STB and customers in his pursuit
to fundamentally change how CSX operates in order to reach an OR below
60.  Till then, expect the unexpected.  He does not give a rats ass
about what anyone thinks except those who put him in power.  

Customers and employees will continue rant and complain, however HH
will continue to do what he has been doing until the Board of Directors
removes him from power. The investment community is monitoring the
impact to CSX so it will be interesting to learn how if at all, the CSX
board reacts.  When does enough become enough and they stand up and take
the necessary action?

I suspect they will provide HH cover and support till at least next
spring.  If the situation is not improved, then and only then do I
believe the board will feel the pressure from the investment community
to take action.   In the mean time, the reductions will continue in
pursuit of a lower OR.  

Recent Investor Advisory comments on CSX

Rail Shipper Survey: CSX Service Disruptions 

INVESTMENT CONCLUSION: 
This week we conducted a rail shipper survey focused on CSX’s recent 
service disruptions as the company continues to implement various
operational changes under Hunter Harrison’s leadership ( see more
commentary in our August Rail Update). 

We felt this was a timely exercise given an increasingly heightened
level of attention around how these recent service disruptions could
present potential near-term risks for CSX (i.e., reduced network
fluidity and market share losses) and potential near-term opportunities
for other transportation providers (i.e., market share gains for
NSC/truckers and also contribute to tighter supply/demand dynamics in
the broader freight market).

In this survey, we asked various questions on these topics and
have summarized the consolidated results (from 56 respondents) and
selected commentary in the attached slideshow. 

KEY POINTS: The Magnitude of CSX’s Recent Service Disruptions
 On a scale of 1 –10 (with 1=very poor and 10=very strong), the average
ranking  of CSX’s current service levels was 2.3. The average ranking
of CSX’s  service levels prior to Hunter Harrison stepping into the CEO
role was 6.6 and the average ranking of NSC’s current service levels was
6.9. In  summary, since the beginning of the year, we have seen a
substantial  deterioration in CSX’s service levels on both an absolute
and relative basis.  

When Will These Service Issues Be Resolved? 
Most shippers (60%) have not been provided with a time line on when
CSX’s service levels  are expected to recover.  For others, the message
around the timing of  a recovery has varied between several weeks (21%),
several months (12%) and several quarters (7%).  We also asked shippers
if they believed these disruptions were temporary and would lead to a
better service product over the long term. In response, 51% said maybe,
42% said no and 7% said yes.  In summary, shippers remain uncertain
about both the near-term and longer-term progression of CSX’s service
levels.


Potential Market Share Shifts.
When the shippers were asked if they had plans to shift business away
from CSX based on the recent service disruptions, 70% said yes, 23%
said maybe and 7% said no.  And on average, the respondents said that
34% of their current business with could shift away from CSX by the end
of the year.  As it relates to who could pick up this market share, 48%
said NSC,39% said truck and 13% said other railroads/modes. In summary,
it is clear that the near term market share shifts could be meaningful.

Damn right it is all about ego and power with the new CEO. He doesn't
need a penny. If it was about money it would only be because he is so
ill that he knows it going to cost him out the butt to keep himself
alive. Lung, heart, liver or what ever transplants he might need or
balloon surgery and god know what else with his piss poor circulation
isn't going to come cheap.  But then I doubt very seriously he is
paying for meds like the rest of us.  Bet your bottom dollar he gets
his meds from Canada at cut rate cost.  What ever he does you can lay
your money on a safe bet he is going to pop the pills and do whatever
it takes to live this contract out and do as he has said he will do
with the help of SATAN!

I think the first renovation Hh,should do at head office is put nets
around the outside perimeter of the building. So when the stock tanks
and csx loses all its customers..and the brass jumps out the windows.
The nets will save then. Then they can take them to the coocoo farm.

Hey former LC:

Do you get a royalty payment every time you spout off the typical union
line conservative bullshit?  Pretty sure that was Clinton that signed
NAFTA, and it was Obama that openly said what he was going to do to the
coal industry BEFORE he got elected and he damn sure made good on that
promise.  Neither of them were conservative.  Only reason unions stroke
the dicks of democrats is for the Presidential Emergency Board. Nothing
else.  Equal blame on both sides. Crooked political influence is an
equal opportunity employer.  Was "encouraged" by my rep to "vote for
Obama" and "for Hillary".  I haven't seen the first recipient of my
dues deductions calling out HH in the media for what he is doing to CSX
or its customers.  The Government taxed Industry out of this country,
and it was and is greedy reps in both parties that are to blame.  The
working man always gets fucked, double fucked when you can't strike.

Whether Trump succeeds in bringing jobs back remains to be seen, but I
hope so.  More people working, means more union members working, means
more chances for organizing.  Equals more dues paying members, right?
or should I say, Well, duh?

In the meantime, let's stay on topic of Hunter Harrison who is
actively destroying this company and contract employees' future job
security, and the daily operations of other businesses.  I believe we
can all agree on that.

Before hh took over cp,we had twelve full time car inspectors in the
yard. And yes we where told you have thirty seconds per side to inspect
cars. And you chalked striker castings. Once that started we where down
to two inspectors per shift. Some shifts no dinner break of coffee
break. And if it got really busy they took carman out of the shop to
inspect a train then sent them back once they did inspections. And yes
they where doing pull by inspection and break test. On the potash
trains then they had to yard potash trains because they needed two
hundred brake shoes each train. Because they where neglected. And once
they hit the yard we would find twenty to thirty bad order wheels. 
They can defer repairs but sooner or later it has to be done. So in
reality they gained nothing.  They cut back on so many carmen. They had
to fly managers in on the weekend to do repairs.  AAR rules are the same
in Canada and USA. Hh is not scared of government. I'm sure he will get
around to doing same thing there as he did at cp.

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.

supported it.  The ol' CSX that was loved/hated is probably gone. 

Hasn't been that long yet since headhunter took over.

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

BRAIN DEAD T&E


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

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

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

In Evansville, Clayton Hodges is finally a roadmaster after ten years.
ADE Travis Johnson promoted him. Clayton had his finger driven in a
bolt hole holding a bolt on a joint bar that was hit by a sledgehammer
held by Travis Johnson. An injury not turned in. Did not Travis learn
from his dad Rick Johnson when KJ McDivitt's injury was covered up and
turned in? Clayton who had his leg driven under a tie when he stepped in
the backhoe red zone. He broke a window out of a csx vehicle and nothing
happened. Also the time he took out of service the morganfield branch
but would remove the orange lock off the switch to allow the local to
work the industries and would put the lock back on after the local was
done. Good luck to evansville and see them on CNN later.

I worked in the Csx technology area for 5 years.  I got out a few weeks
after HH arrived.  Went to a company close by for a 50% salary increase
and 1% of the aggravation.  All these technology positions are just
replacements for all the contractors that HH let go.  In another
brilliant HH concept he released all contractors who keep a very
complicated technology system together to run the RR and replace them
with FTEs off the street with no RR experience.  They are one major
tech event away from shutting the RR down for days or weeks.  Too bad,
it was a great company with great people but it will take years to
recover from this a hole.  Good luck Csx.

Just remember CSX employees, the CEO of your company got a big payout.
He is going to get all the executives below him to break every rule in
the book and enforce it. He is doing this for his own personal gain. He
will be dead. The people who did his bidding, who had to do his bidding
will be left holding the bag. They will be the ones to pay.for his
selfishness and greed. By the time this happens you, the workers, will

The retired Canadian guy here again-yes, we got a written memo that we
had 30 seconds per side and we chalk the striker casting at each car to
confirm that you looked for cracks on the coupler, etc. If you did not
play ball you were left in the dust because other inspectors played
ball. They would find a way to pull you out of service for not playing
ball. Transport Canada are in bed with the railways. If they find
violations they impose small fines. Transport Canada is no threat to
the Canadian railways and the railways know that. So if HH imposes this
on you guys at CSX and fires an employee for not complying with a 30
second inspection, your telling me he can get on the hotline and call
the government . That employee will be reenstated the next day and the
government will have CSX shaking in their boots? I call bullshit! HH
has just started with you guys at csx. We had 4.5 years of this prick.
He will violate the collective agreement and government regulations
because he knows he will e gone before all this stuff goes to the table
and is sorted out.So when a supervisor tells you to do something and you
know it's against the rules and you are fired for insubordination take
that to the bank and tell cupcake and kids that you stood your ground

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

What is going on today at CSX is totally unacceptable. This Wall Street
driven greed is what caused the 2008 financial melt down we all 
experienced. These "gains" will all  be short lived and this puppet
master will be gone once the house of cards he's creating collapses...


I was a Conrail employee prior to the merger and left in 1996 for
another rail road because of the same things Conrail was doing prior to
the merger. Conrail like CSX were making huge profits. But to the pigs
on Wall Street it just wasn't enough... They can never be satisfied
with making a good profit. They always want more and more.  This is
what's ruining profitable businesses everywhere .....EXCESSIVE
GREED... 


Now for the people who are living this nightmare, as fellow railroader
I can only offer this advice......


Car Inspectors...You all know the requirements for performing your
inspections including air brake tests. Don't take any short cuts. "
Roll By's" don't count as inspections.  Walk your trains and make

road worthy. If you write a Bad Order... Make sure you document
it...Keep a CYA book to document the trains you inspected. It will help
you in the event the FRA gets involved.  

Make sure that you have CFR Part 49 : 218 Blue Flag Protection in place

2. You are not doing anyone a favor by taking a short cut and not using

Well to all of you that think this precision
Railroading is working and only a few customers are not getting there
cars i can tell you for a fact that one of csx largest customers isn't
getting any. In louisville we have 2 ford auto plants that load cars and
trucks. One can get 120 rack spot a day and for the last month they have
only gotten a full spot like 2 times. Many days they don't get any
racks because there are none in the yard to spot. Some days I have seen
3 racks and many days less then 30. It definitely isn't the employees
not wanting to spot the customers but the fact that there are none to
spot. Ford is 5000 cars behind that need to be loaded so where do you
think that they are going to go. TRUCKS?

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
a guy from connelsville. Then our train master of 5 years quit and
bought a coffee shop about 3 weeks ago, so he's gone. Then the guy
from connelsville slipped and fell last week, he got hurt and is gone,
then the guy that they replaced him with, a former trainmaster of ours,
had a stroke 2 days ago. He's gone. Then they sent a guy from Ashtabula
yesterday morning.. he's out of service already for chest pains. He's
gone. Not sure who the next one is or is going to be. I'm sure the

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!

money. He does not want to be bothered with small customers. Not enough
profit,but combine all small customers together equals profit. He is
decreasing everything to get operating ratio down. To drive shares up
then bail. New guy will have to upgrade infrastructure and equipment
all at once.  And csx has spent millions on training employees,which
might be picked up by other railways. Time will tell how this is all

Everything I have read or watched in the media,regarding how Hunter is
destroying CSX. He has pissed off employees of csx,customers
shippers,government and has only been in charge a short time. If the
shareholders and board of directors are not taking notice of this and
not rethinking Hh results as to date. Then they better start looking at
the real facts and real numbers not manipulated facts and numbers. And
start getting results before hh has taken csx to no return. It is the
boards duty to do best for shareholders and csx. Not what is best for
one man. If they can't do this then they should resign.

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.

In my thirty five years with the rr. I was layed off nine times the
longest 2.5years a total of five years being laid off. When I was laid
off I just went and got another job that did not pay that well. But it
got me threw till I was recalled to the RR.well I made it to
retirement. My advice if you are laid off. If you need money do not
pull you pension leave it in the plan. In canada if you took your
pension out it was the same as quiting and you lost all your seniority.
Do not burn the bridges behind you. Good luck people.

On hold for whatever, c'mon man, call your bank, or call the electric

because you hung up and cried about it. Sure something may be going on,

I'm important. 
And to the engineer looking for a bonus, I'm sure you'd sign your

In the short time Hh has ran csx,there sure has been a lot of factual
negative reports on his performance.  It is starting to shake
shareholders up. Dwell times up speeds down. Now that he has cut
management by more than fifty per cent,they will have to make more
desions,and work many many more hours. And burn out will set in and
mistakes will be made. There will be accidents derailments,and pray
there is no loss of life or injuries. Then Hh can just fire them and
replace them with yes men or women that know nothing. They will have
turn over like never before. Seen this at cp,so be careful people these
people could get you in trouble with lack of job knowledge. And if
manage ment make mistakes they will try putting the blame on you.
Record everything that you can to back yourself up if this happens.
With Hh you are dealing with a criminally minded person. Your life
means nothing to him,if you get killed your just a stat part of doing

Hunter is sitting at home with his oxygen and morphine. Thinking all as
I have to do is the same thing I did with cn and cp.Now he is realizing
that what he did up north will not work at csx. And his henchmen are to
scared to suggest anything to him. He is getting heat now from every
angle so he has to get things moving by reinstating,yards etc. He is
trying to sell off fire more people to get his numbers to show he is on
the right track. But it is not working like he hoped. And it is getting
harder for him to make his sell on precision railroading. I read O
Hedge.com tells a lot about Hh and destruction of csx. They should of
not given him pay package up front. No results no money,if he fails I
hope csx can recover some back. Who knows what was in his contract.

This is what Hunter did at CP. If the unions don't stick together he
will destroy them. The people that are voting for a higher hourly rate
will see it will come at a cost. It won't be worth it later, you're
being just as greedy as Hunter and the board members. Stand up, you
have rights. People have died in the past so you could have a voice, so
don't throw all the hard work of others away because he's dangling a
few more dollars in your face. He has a motive and he knows what people
will do for a dollar. He's not stupid but he thinks his workers are.
Pray that God removes this man before there is nothing left.

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.

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

All CREWS


You have Federal rights that protect you as a union member in the
United States. Read your LMRDA members bill of rights.

Members who wish to sue union officials for violation of the fiduciary
duty provisions must first request that the union itself take action.
If the union does not take action WITHIN A REASONABLE PERIOD OF TIME 
the members may request permission of the court to sue.


The best way to protect and enforce your rights is to organize with
other members to put pressure on the "Boss" of the union through
petitions, group grievances, campaigns at union meetings and the best
of all create newsletters gaining support from outside groups.

Work place harassment, hostility, abuse and intimidation should be
considered an emergency work issue that your union should be not waste
any time addressing. If it seems that it is always one particular shift
or crew that is always on the target, then that should be filed as
"stalking" or discrimination against that particular group or person.
 Don't sit around and let it grow into something that is way out of
control.  You must put your union on notice and file complaints. You
have rights as union member for protection by your union as well as
state and federal laws.

The union has to file grievences and have them heard by arbitrators,if
they can't solve problems with the company. To register all these and
put a case together takes time. Then arbitrators take there time to
give dission,like thirty day. Rome was not built in a day!And all of
you are the union. The reps are nothing without your support.

We where forced to work overtime,if you refused you where fired. In the
collective agreement they could only force you to work over time in an
emergency. Some of us went to labour board. We where told before the
government could get involved,the union had to exhaust all avenues. In
canada that was the law. We eventually won and where not forced
anymore. The same week Hh put on an overtime freeze. He just liked to
fuck with everyone. In the end he had to open his wallet and make

Good luck with that, Hh said no employee will sit with feet up. Mainly
supervisors at cp they where not allowed to work either. That all went
out the window when hh came. They use to fly It clerks managers from
all over to do our work. The only thing we could do was try and record
the times they worked. Put in grievences there where lots. If we
protested we where told just put in grievence.But  now we are doing
what we want,and all union could do was wait till the grievences where
heard by arbitrators. Priorities for arbitration was dismissals. On the
bright side I give the union credit for winning most grievences..And if
there is an award from management working it was divided by employees
affected,ie laid off employees. Yes record everything and give to your
union make records of all of it.

If your non union supervisors are doing your work, you better be
getting on the horn asap with your rep and making a call to the
international office.  No supervisor is ever supposed to be doing union
contract work. PERIOD!  If someone is walked off or suspended for taking
a needed a break, there are laws that cover how often an employee can be
worked without a break. You work for a private company. You do not WORK
FOR THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. You are still considered a civilian and
also governed by laws of the state in which you work. Now is the time
for you to be shouting up the butts of your union reps and demanding
protection from unfair labor practices and hostility in the workplace.
Excessive discipline needs to be documented by everyone and your
international made aware of every case that happens immediately.  
The unions are there for a reason. You pay them to represent you and
you have a right to demand that representation. Your right to go after
your union for not representing you to its fullest is protected under
federal law.  Now is not the time to sit on your asses and cry and
bitch because you think your union is worthless and wont do a thing.
Your power is being lost because you have let it. You have sat on your
butts and haven't been holding your union accountable. You want the
attention of your union then start doing things that make them take
notice.  Put them in the hot seat. You can go to the press if your
union isn't doing their jobs. You can picket your union.  You want
your workplace cleaned up then get your union off their asses!

leaned out the union employees. He will then lean out managers and
supervisors, and they will be a bare minimum. And salaried employees
will find themselves working many many extra hours.To the point where
they will be making a lot less per hour than there union employees.
They will start asking them selfs if it is worth it once they can't

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!

You have to give some credit to HH for pulling a huge one.  Seeing what
he has done with CSX it reminds me of the story of the emperor with no
clothes.  Harrison is the swindler and the board and investors are the
the foolish emperor.

"There existed an emperor who loved wearing fine clothes and spent all
of his people's money on them. He had a different set for each hour and
was, without doubt, the finest dressed man in the land. 

One day, two swindlers claiming to be weavers entered the Emporer's
city and proclaimed they were capable of making the finest, lightest,
most magnificent cloth the world has ever seen. So extraordinary was
this cloth, it was invisible to anyone who was incompetent or stupid. 

Hearing of the weaver's amazing "talent", the foolish Emporer
thought he could use such cloth to weed out undesirables in his city.
He paid the swindlers an enormous sum of gold and  they set out to
"create" the clothes; knowing they would only need go through the
motions. 

The Emperor sent several advisors to gage their progress and all the
advisors reported the cloth magnificent, not wanting to appear unworthy
for seeing nothing at all; the cloth didn't exist! 

Finally the clothes were "finished", the swindlers already having
counted the gold and jewels they had received. A procession was
arranged to show off the Emperor's new clothes and the entire city
gathered in the center to view them. Having been "dressed" by the
swinglers, who remarked how wonderful he looked, and how light the
cloth appeared on him, he appeared before his people. 

The people, having heard of the weaver's abilities and the cloth's
fictious properties, were amazed and offered thunderous applause to the
now beaming Emperor. None of them were willing to admit that they
hadn't seen a thing; for if anyone did, then he was either stupid or
unfit for the job he held. Never before had the emperor's clothes been
such a success. 

While expressing admiration at their Emperor's new "invisible"
clothes, a small boy cried out... "But the Emperor has no clothes!"

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!

those cars in the past 250 miles out of the way just to bring them

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?

Hh did the same thing with cn and cp. the hottest trains, had to cut off
pick up a block of pre air tested blocks. Some times just a dozen
cars,some where tagged with special handling on them. ie speed
restriction that where ignored. With crews not being made aware. In the
bitter cold sometimes when train was put back together. The trains had
to pump forever to get the flow down. Which caused long delays and held
trains out until train in town was able to go. Hh way of thinking is the
railroad is just one big conveyor belt,and no cars will be dormant. You
went with his plan or you were canned. Delays the numbers could be

HH

Do you even know what the hell your block swapping precision
railroading is doing out here. You got them adding slop freight to 60
mph intermodal trains reducing their speed to 50 and delaying delivery
times because they have to set out and pick up extra crap in route. 
Did you know that one of the foreign lines we do a shit load of
business with refused to take one of these screwed up trains and it sat
on our main for almost 2 days tied down till it was fixed. The
intermodal trains on that foreign line are hot shots for them and step
on step off and haul ass. You try to send them this stupid shit and
delay shipments to do what??? Sneak in some extra blocks on them.  You
think screwing with their schedules and yard routine is ok because you
don't care what they think? Your god of all railroads.  Turning 60 mph
trains into 50 mph just to move a block is really moving freight quickly
and efficiently? Pissing off the competitor is smart? Better upgrade
your oxygen brand!

June 2017 6.2 million new jobs in the USA.highest since 2000. So that
being said economy is starting to move forward. Everyone benefits when
GDP is up. Now Hh thinks he is preparing csx for this future growth, by
selling off csx assets and has the blessing of his hand picked board of
directors. I hope the share holders can see threw his scheme and
protest threw proper channels. For common sense for the future of csx.

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

And is going to clean up your great country. Getting people off well

Companies are going to pay people what they are worth in most cases. I

politically correct. What you see is what you get. Not a bunch of
snowflakes.Keep putting in grievences when your collective agreement is
violated pile them up. Human rights complaints,and down the road when
things settle down that is when the company will have to answer to all
the violations. And make employees whole. They think they can abuse
employees and when hh is gone so are the memories of the way management
treated every one. They will have to answer for it and they will. Keep

has increased by at least 20%!

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

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

When hh cuts the staff to the bone. He will train office staff to run
trains. So if there are no available crews office people will put on
there work boots and get the trains moving. This will happen after the
overtime freeze.  He will run csx very lean yet to come. Before hh we
had 16000 employees after hh 11000 employees. Forty percent cut of
staff. And when management run the trains and have an insident,it will
be covered up. I seen this at cp.. if he cuts at csx like he did at cp
and cn it will be a shame. But even if the bean counters say he can't
do it. He still will and management will be ran off there feet. Your
lucky this Hh is not going to make four years at csx. You haven't seen

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

That was a good article about a dieing  mad man. That is true he has

to look it up on you tube. They look dangerous to use if hand break
wheel was bad order and you slipped. I have never used one so won't
judge. I would not want to be holding one when it is lighting out. Up

brake to slow car movement down in switching yard. I bet a year from

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
https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2017/08/01/rail-a01.html

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.

with all the violations and layoffs.  How many CSX workers got let go
under Obama? Trump  duped us with lies and false promises. Making
America great again only for the super rich and greedy people like
hunter and trump's family.  Voting matters. Greedy folks like HH are

Pay attention to your air pressure.  Been noticing a lot of these long
trains have been showing 92-95 on the rest and the break pipe is up
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
last few months. I think they been ordered to slowly turn it up hoping
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
crap!

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 reviewed railway maps of track in Canada. Very simple straight line of
track from east coast to west coast. And lines going into the USA.Then I
looked at railway map of,csx from  border in north east USA to south
coast of USA. It is quite the network of track. Complicated compared to
the tracks in canada. I can't see how Hh is going to streamline the csx
trains..I can't see his precision railroading work. Especially after
cutting all the experienced rail roaders. And think he is going to
improve customer service. I will be watching this,gong show and I'm

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

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

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

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!

To the managers you are under hunters spell to treat the employees like
shit. And hunter warrants your behaviour.But remember hunter is not
there for long and you might be. And karmas a bitch. The employees can
make or break your career in the future. So treat people like you want
to be treated. I have witnessed managers quit there jobs,because they
refused to treat the employees the way Hh wanted them to. This took
place at cn and cp. Do what is right.

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.

Cp and the union had to bring in extra arbitration people to hear all
the cases dismisal case and every other grievences. Well on judgement
day the union won most of grievences. Hunter got up when he heard the
news on his way out the room he said he is not paying for grievences.
Guess what happened he paid every one. I got two checks for my
grievences. The arbitrator said most of the dismissals should never of
happened. Again the only weapon he has is to fire people for nothing.
He is just giving employees paid vacation. And I also got check from

Retired cp employee my last four years was under Hh. Pulled out of
service twice returned to service both times with back pay. Now that hh
plans are failing he want to beat up the back bone of the railway
employees. All he has is to pull employees out of service to send a
message across the board. This fixes nothing of the problems he is
facing with media and government. If you find yourself being pulled out
of service don't defend yourself to management . Just go home and
contact your union explain what happened. Get ahold of insurance and
start a claim. They will be pulling people out of service across the
system. Again it does not change the situation hh is in. They just have
to scramble to replace the people that are out. It's the domino effect.
Just comply you will be made whole in the end. Media is hh biggest fear.
Because his colours are exposed. And it gets share holders and board of
directors thinking. The mess he is creating the board knows they will
have to fix in the end. Hang in there brothers and sisters.

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
way......

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

Second pitch. Harrison informs lower staff that the STB can go F*%#@8K

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

Don't know what you spring chickens think you'll gain by hoping the
stock tanks. I've got my retirement in the bag. For those that are
celebrating the stock dropping,your a bunch of idiots with out a
future.  I've seen a lot of changes to this railroad in my time and
this too will pass but things aren't going to return to the way they
were. Get over yourself and move on. And another thing, for you cry
baby whiners giving information to the media and sniveling about this
company eliminating rules protecting your safety, go change your diaper
kid. Those are one less rule to get fired for, real railroaders look out
for one another and protect ourselves. We don't depend on a rule made
up by a idiot lawyer in Jacksonville that ain't never been around a
train.

Why is it the unions aren.t sharing any information as to contract
talks. Absolutely nothing other than the gossip going on.  Funny how
neither web sight has any updates,guess we'll find out when they
finalize an agreement and tell us to vote on it or else. I'm referring
to direct bargaining and not national.  Was just reported trump
appointed not so friendly labor lawyers to the nrlb.  They need to act
quick and come up with something. Why are we paying all this money and

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.

discussing the lack of planning of precision railroading and bad

service they have ever seen, and were even questioning if there was a
hurricane no body knew about disrupting service. The surface
transportation board  wants to have a meeting with all the top
executives at CSX to discuss ways to improve service and delays. 

I think the shareholders should know about this and proves how HH
doesn't care about customers and only cares about cutting things to

At one time if an employer,had employee do unsafe work and employee was
hurt or killed they usually just fined the company. Today's laws if a
supervisor of a company gets employee to do unsafe work. And employee
get hurt or killed, that supervisor could face jail time. And company
also get fined. In  Canada our workers comp sucks they can just cut you
off benefits even if you still injured. The USA system is much better
you have the right to sue.Workers  compensation in Canada is all about
protecting employer in most cases.

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.

I could make along list of minor stupid things that,employees where
pulled out of service for at CN and CP. A manager was fired for not
having enough failed audits for the month. The best ones are when an
employee is pulled out of service. And because it is busy,they deferred
to a later date his punishment to stay home. They forced overtime and
when employees refused they where fired. They where all returned to
work threw arbitration. They can only force overtime in an emergency
situation ie train derailment where public is in danger. They will try
and do anything to rattle employees. So if you find yourself pulled out
of service under this management. Try not to let it get to you to much.
I'm sure your union has been informed by canadien unions on all these
cases. And Hh will find himself paying a lot of back pay like he had to
do with CN and CP.

Hh gave these managers the power to pull anyone out of service. When
they try to get employees to do unsafe work etc. And intimidate people
it might work with some. If something happens where it does not stay in
house. Hh loves it when his guys intimidate employees. But if something
happens that it makes it to the media ,Hh will play stupid. And address
media that this will not be tolerated and will fire the suckers that
brought heat to csx. These managers are stupid scape goats,and think Hh

With big changes at csx,a lot of guys are frustrated that your union is
not doing anything. This management does not care about laws or
contract agreements. Grievences pile up like crazy. Our union went
threw this at cp. I retired after 35 years the union did good by me.
But it takes time to fight grievences. I was pulled out of service two
times under Hh.  A majority of dismissals where returned to service. 
Don't try and figure out what this Hh team is doing. You have to show
up to work to get paid,and do as asked.  Keep a journal on everything
that you feel is not safe etc. Under the law you have the right to
refuse unsafe work. Hh and friends will get caught up sooner or later.
Braking the rules. We had incident where transport Canada got two
search warrants to raid head office.  Tm told crew to park train on
grade and not to put hand brakes on train. It was the eve of strike.
Crew turned in tm and he thought he was doing Hh a favour. For his
effort,Hh fired him.

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

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?

Saftey is NOT important here at CSX anymore. This has been shown time
and time again and no official and can say CSX is operating safely with
out telling a lie.    

Customers are NOT important anymore. To many in this area are not
getting serviced because how upper management is running CSX and some
is actually losing business because how CSX is delaying trains. Not
because they can't get cars, but because management doesn't know how
to run a railroad. 

Employees are NOT important anymore. Actually heard a couple managers
talking that they did not care if an employee was run over by a train.
They are only numbers and can be replaced, and they were only worried
about their bonuses.

Hunter Harrison IS ONLY IN IT FOR THE MONEY. Not the company well
being. Harrison is holding a grudge against CSX because CSX would not
merge with CP and it made him look bad in the eyes of the public and in
the railroad community. Now he is over the first railroad that turned
the merger down, he is out for vengeance. He has already gotten his
money and he will run CSX into the ground and jump ship while he can.

Harrison claimed to be the top of his game on railroad operations. From
day one trains have been backed up, and customers were not getting
serviced more than usual, and the service to them is getting more and
more unreliable some have actually stopped shipping CSX. Contracts
between CSX and customers are not important to Harrison. If they were
why are you not trying to service them instead of trying to run them
off? I tell you why CSX has more locals and switching operations than
any other railroads you ever ran Mr. Harrison. These locals and
switching operating interfere with your timed freight plans and you
don't like it, so you think in the best interested of CSX to run all
these customers off so they don't have to be switched.   

The FRA doesn't care how CSX is running, what FRA laws are being
violated and how it treats the communities they run through. Crossing
are being blocked hours at a time. Crews are being made to run on
territory that they are not qualified on. There is too many other FRA
violation not being address. When calls are made to the FRA it is like
talking to the wall. I don't think they care about their own rules and
rugulations anymore then CSX cares about them.

from claiming workers are to blame for train delays, to shutting
efficient hump yards,trains stacked up on the mains, Engineers being
forced to run out of territory, etc, etc. Could it be a ploy to force a
merger. Ultimately by just screwing up the CSX system and saying "only
a merger at this time could alleviate the pressure on this system?

Typical American management. Eliminate thousands of jobs to streamline

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....

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.

Gigantic Egos!

Like Trump, Harrison believes that he alone can run CSX and make huge
profits while cutting 50% of the workforce.  Trump told us that he
alone could negotiate everything and make America great again. Trump is
failing big time and up to his eye balls in scandals. Harrison is
ruining a good company and trashing customer service to make short term
profits for himself and investors.  FRA start doing your job, please!

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

Priority for hh and his team is disapline. That is the only control he
has with employees. Before hh supervisors where not aloud to touch a
tool etc. That had all changed,there where many times they had so many
people out of service. That supervisors had to make up for no
employees. The trains would get delayed. The phones would ring off the
hook looking for answers why. They worked these guys 16 hours a day.
They would fly managers in from all over to try get work done that out
of service employees should of been doing. Then the managers that flew
in for two weeks. They abolished a lot of the managers jobs. Because
they showed they weren't needed back home. These the ones that did not
volunteer to go out of town work 16 hours a day where not team players
in hh eyes. And no extra pay because they where
Salaried. A lot packed it in they seen, the light they where working
for no extra pay. And threats  of divorce for some. And yes it pays to
play stupid. Do what your told nothing else. Most managers took those
jobs to avoid manual labour. They are knee deep in it now,a lot forgot
where they live and spouses name. The price of being loyal to hh. Which
they also hate.

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....

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.

Before hunter Harrison. Disapline the company used the brown system. 60
demerit points against you and you where fired. If you got say 40
demerits. You could burn 10 a year off your 40. If you had no more
incedents. They did away with the brown system now they send you home
and you come in for statement at later date. I was pulled out of
service twice as a carman. Sat at home for six weeks. But they where
bullshit charges. The union got me back to work both times with back
pay and incedents removed from my personal file. I assume you local
reps have been in touch with canadien reps on all this dissapline shit.
They are in the know. You guys and your union reps have some big fights
on your hands. Nice part is when hh loses and has to pay back pay to
people that where pulled out of service. He turns grey. Lack of oxygen.

Not sure if other shops had this as their standard but Cumberland shop
has always had for all crafts line up before starting their shift where
they get their assignments of what they will be working on. As a group
all crafts would meet in the locker room. They always started with the
Pledge of Allegiance and mandatory pre shift stretches. Their reasoning
was it prevented injuries. They had several posters in the locker ro
showing how to do the stretches and the reason behind them. All
supervisors were required to lead the pledge and lead the stretches.
Then the supervisors would give out shift assignments. As of yesterday
all of the safety posters were removed and they are no longer saying
the Pledge of Allegiance or doing pre shift stretching. They were told
it was wasting 2 minutes that they could be working. Cumberland also no
longer has a 3rd shift. Supervisors also came in last week and removed
every chair and bench from the shop. They said there is no reason ever
to be sitting while on the clock. They also made a new rule last week
that all vehicles in the parking lot must be facing out of parking
spaces and are required to now back in to their parking space. Besides
all of the layoffs in Cumberland people are quitting left and right.

Some of you guys are absolute IDIOTS.  Proves my point that a lot of you

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

In Waycross, if you complain to the super he is going to find a way to
write you up for insubordination. 

If you get in trouble for something they will write you up for
insubordination also so you won't get any run off insurance. 


They are going to make on duty trains go to service center instead of a
tower because people complained about walking. 

Built a gravel parking lot at south Waycross for swap out trains going
south. If you bring a train back north that goes into the yard you will

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.

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.

After reading good article on Railage .com I decided to submit this.
Retired from Cp as Carman after thirty two  years. I retired asap took
a hit on my pension. Was scared to get fired. I have seen many changes
on the rr over the years. But when Hh took over I could not believe
people could be intimidated and belittled in the way Hh had done. The
new hired conductors as soon as they finished there student trips and
put on there own. Some had not worked tracks in certain yards. One
young family man first new to yard got crushed between two cars. He was
a news flash in safety bulletin. Hh was sorry for the interruption in
service. Just a pawn in his game. Cn hogger and conductor where
crossing old tress all with train that had heavier new units. Bridge
collapse the units with crew went into the river, no survivors. Hh that
bridge was inspected just last week. Liar. Just two more pawns. I could
go on and on. I'm still affected from his time at Cp. Before Hh came
to Cp there was a compassionate management and employee culture. That
was there to help no matter what colour helmet you wore. The management
that where friends and good people did not stay in those positions
unless they showed there teeth. And only thing that mattered was
production. Lots of people where fired for next to nothing. Families
suffer employees have union that returned many to work with backpay.
Management had to hire lawyer. Stick together people Hh will just be

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

MERGER...BLAH BALH

I sware to god of I hear one more person say We are going to merge Im
going to puke.  Been hearing this same old song and dance for so many
years its just pathetic.. First it was the UP and CSX for years. Then
it was with the NS and then the threat of the CP.   You people talk to
much shit and don't spend enough time doing what is right.

Stupid conductors are the worst. They are letting TM's go out there
and do their work. Throw switches, line air hoses and put on tele's.
Don't these stupid pups know that is a serious violation of our union
agreement for management to do union contractors work. That goes
straight to the international. Goes right past the LC and GC for
review. 5 day penalty pay. These pups don't give a shit about their
union rights but bitch when the union doesn't get their claim paid
right away.
How about the suck asses who keep doing work in violation of the
agreement. Know of 4 hoggers on the extra board the take trains out of
their  assigned territory every time they are asked and don't question
the chief one time about it. They don't put in claims either.

Nothing but a bunch of such asses and union busters who are bringing
everyone else down. We brothers who fight for our union rights got to
fight two battles. Management and scab brothers. No wonder our unions
have been going to hell for years. Bad enough the company has them in
their pocket, but now we got to deal with turn coats who wont even try
to fight them.   We might as well just bend over and take it cause we
got two wars to fight.  Getting to old for this shit!

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

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

“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.

Someone touched on a very interesting aspect earlier today.  When that
functioning lunatic EHH was at CPRS, he went through not one, not two,
not three but FOUR Chief Financial officers during his 4 1/2 reign of
terror.  That simply doesn't happen at most companies and that there
were rumors abound that he was being investigated by the SEC for
possible stock fraud during his stay at CPRS should be telling at the
very least.  With the apparent meltdown mode in seemingly full swing at
CSXT that ultimately leads to frustration among customers (big AND
important customers at that) and lost business, it wouldn't shock me
if there's some book-cooking that is or will be going on.  

Honestly, if EHH wasn't running a railroad of some sort where he
couldn't exercise his power and bullying/intimidating, he'd likely be
in a mental hospital instead.

GO AWAY! Don't go away mad just go away.  Go tell your little csx
public safety director that you are not wanted. Go find another
"FAKE" post to put on here.  

Sidings are plugged for 90 miles on the greatlakes division. Cant get
the freight across the road and customers are not getting their goods.
On the brink of gridlock. What's happening out there?  Is it because
so many yards have been cut down or so many people have lost their jobs
and said screw it and just quit instead of moving 100's of miles away.
Is it because they have cut so many local jobs that no one can get
anything done. Extra boards are exhausted and trains are sitting out
again.  Now crews are dealing with the new PTC on the greatlakes
division and it isn't working with the TO program. Train after train
is going into suppression because the programs just aren't compatible.
Many complain the TO is too fast. Runs to hot for the PTC. Now is not
the time for train delays. Its always something with this outfit and
now the new CEO and his precision railroading plan has everything in
turmoil. Avon yard was plugged and couldn't take anymore freight. 

How the stock is going up is beyond all of us. Do the investors crunch
numbers, count their un hatched chickens or just live on pure fake

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

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

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?
Heck, many local reps will take advantage too.

Is no wonder why dues are costly & support \ union membership has been
dropping for years.

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!

that you might enjoy or works out for your family schedule.  I hope to
god that our Union doesn't throw us under the bus and agree to take

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.

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.

When we  had hh at cn and cp regional managers checked a car out without
blue flag protection. All managers had to go for drug test. One was
dirty and out of service.  It sent a message to us unionized employees.
That hh has no problem eating his own. A majority of these managers knew
the job well. I was shocked at how many just up and quit. I see adds now
for these positions. That they can't fill and existing foreman have
tried to pick up the slack. With all the union job cuts there has not
been man power to cover the work. There solution any salaried employee
work them to death. Even if they have no experience in that trade.
Which is not safe for no one. The lives that have been lost because of
the intimidation and fear that hh has instilled in the companies he
controls is almost criminal. Some managers that pushed rushed broke
safety rules got fired in the end for all his effort. You can walk up
to the line but don't cross it. In the end when they do investigation.
The rule books come out and your other reasons don't matter in an
investigation. If they do an employee audit and can't find any fault
they will make something up to appease upper management. We found out
they where failing employees with there audits. Putting failed audit in
a persons file and not informing the employee. We had our union rep.
Look at all employees files. And he found 160 failed employees audits.
That had to be removed from employees file. These managers or managers
foreman where dissaplined.  They had to have so many failed audits a
month on employees. When they could not find any they fabricated them.
There is a new low in the railway industry when hh is involved.

I was hired in 2015 with a big group to the Cleveland Terminal. The day
we all marked up, we were furloughed. That was 2 years ago.

After submitting multiple transfer requests over those 2 years, I was
finally selected to transfer to a different division (still NMAD) and
quickly got to qualifying in my new spot.

5 weeks into it, they furlough me again. That's right, they decided to
pay me my entire temporary transfer bonus (5K) to boot me out again;
instead of keeping me there to work in an undermannned subdivsion.

Now I'm back to being out of a job. Is this happening everywhere?

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!

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.

your unions don't do anything for you so you better get your fighting

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

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

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

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.

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

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 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.

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

Holy crap.   I looked at mine after what you said and Im paying more
for my out of service than Im paying to insure my house for a year! I
looked when I got hired at the rosters to see how long it looked like
it would be before I could dream of holding a real job and there were
about 300 guy hired out of avon, hawthorne, pool guys and all the
locals and guys in the yard. If they all pay the minimum insurance then
the Insurance group is raking in around 25 grand a year just out of
great lakes. Got to wonder just how much they get a year from the
entire csx T&E employees.   That's a shit load!  Hell no they aren't
going to want to give that up!

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

After you threw the switch they would come out to look and see if the

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.

As you Avon boys know by now "Whistle Dick" is back to running a
engine at Avon after getting fired as a RFE. Be VERY careful what you
say and do in front of him as he still acts like a manager. He is also
quit chummy with Big Joe and a couple other managers at Avon, and i'm
sure he is giving Joe info on who is good and bad workers.  Hey Whistle
Dick, nobody gives a fuck about your "when i was a Road Foreman"
stories. Everyone knows that u use to be a manager and what kind of a
manager you were. Quit quoting rules to the guys and run that engine
assclown.

Willard westbound hump is closing in days, 6 to 8 yardmaster jobs will
be abolished in a week. 2 main to become a yard track. 2 big crossover
switches and large equipment already sitting in front of admin
building, tons of markings and stakes all through westbound receiving
yard ready to excavate and remove hump, and change track layout. None
of this was here 2 days ago. Many long pools already on bid screen as
short, turnaround pools. That Willard hotel csx paid for will be
bankrupt and closed if we aren't staying here anymore. Good luck guys.
Hope we all stay working. Tell us what's happening where you are

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

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

I know of Hunter from a long time ago, IC days, and have followed his
career as I worked for different railroads. I can tell you fighting him
will get you nowhere but on the street. I may not agree with his style
but reality is reality. Thing is if one survives him, all will be more
knowledgeable railroaders, like the surviving railroaders in his wake.
He will add pride to the organization because that's his DNA. He is a
reincarnation of old school railroaders where he knows what everyone
does and how long everything takes. Those who think he is doing it only
for money would be wrong. I don't know why the hell he took on CSX but
I gotta figure it's about pride in railroading, and not the FRN type.
That's his history. He just loves it.
The downside is many get whacked who were dedicated railroaders. That
sucks. Best to keep the head down and not wind up a casualty. Those
that fight the change will be looking for work elsewhere. I hate to say
that, but have seen it and heard about it from many who worked under his

reign. This is the time to step up and work together to get the job
done. Those who bitch and want to be radicals will get caught, and
hopefully they will not take others down with them.

Everyone lets make sure we are putting our claims in to even the ones

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

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

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

Cond. less than 1


Three step protection had nothing to do with the actual process of
fouling equipment. The 3 step rule was put into place so that hopefully
the engineer at the controls wouldn't be an idiot and run over your
butt! That's why you couldn't foul equipment until he told you he had
your protection in place. Im guessing they don't care anymore.   

Don't get the removal of the 3 step rule confused with your
responsibilities to foul equipment at other times...

Look at rules 2103 as example. You are still required to separate
equipment by 50 feet to perform certain task. 

Rule 100.6- When a rule book or timetable is reissued or amended it
supersedes ALL PREVIOUS VERSIONS ON THE EFFECTIVE DATE.
The new operating manual  effective April 2017 is the new RR bible. It
doesn't matter what was printed in the previous version. If a rule is
missing from the new book that was in the previous one then you are to
assume that the rule no longer exist. Those people who don't sit down
and read the new one are only setting themselves up for failure after
failure because the don't have a damn clue what changes have been made
and don't know how to protect themselves. 
Expect the system bulletins to keep coming. They didn't proof read the
new book and they did what they always do. Print a bunch of rules that
need to be revisited and clarified because supervisors don't know what
the hell they can write you up on and are giving conflicting info to
employees.  Rule of thumb. If its not in black and white don't do it!

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

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
INSPECTOR AND THE FRA D.C OFFICE TO FORWARD YOUR CONCERNS AND

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

Sit on their butts & move levers, push buttons, stare at gauges,

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!

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

T&E 
Your taxi flips will be out the door. You will flip on a train. You
will go to hotel if can't flip without outlawing. You will then come
home working a train or ride another as Jjob and recrew along the way
as needed.upon arrival you will assist in the yard to finish your 10
hrs. Don't expect to get any early quits. You will earn your 10
hrs.pay. wagon service will be cut in half to save money. You won't
get held away. You won't be in hotel long enough to get it. Getting on
the next train out saves hotel cost a a well. Only a one day charge from
lodging if you have to stay until your rested. Don't plan on $50 hr.
Other railroads agreements don't mean a thing to csx. You will get
what they see fit. A new lifestyle is in the making for everyone. Adapt
or find another career. Early quits will be 10 hrs.  That's what you
will be paid for.

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
full time in front of you while talking to you at the annual
stockholder meeting...THINK

   Believe what you want, I really don't care what you believe. With
the UTU's past history of Corruption, I fail to see why you would be
surprised as to the FACTS I have disclosed about a State Legislative
Director considering a T.M. job. I haven't disclosed his name because
it would not result in him being removed from his position. I know for
a fact that he visits this site frequently, and when he reads this, he
will know that the word is out. Would you like examples of UTU officer
unethical behavior? But, if you've been out here for 30+ years, you

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

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

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

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

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

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

Yep Kip it's true, no more flowbacks for EN.  That's why the recent
System Notice was cancelled referring to the bid card access on Crew
Life.  It was going to give the ability to deactivate your card and or
activate a card in a different zone if you were qualified.  Also
cancelled in my guess because as someone previously floated a rumor,
there will be a freeze on any moves outside of a terminal.  While
everyone will say "they can't do that", they will.  I'm sure a
bulletin will come out stating the need, due to "restructuring", and
a case will be made that to protect the nations movement of freight it
is necessary "temporarily". 
This will happen just prior to the mass cuts and closings that we are
yet to find out.  The motive is not to restrict seniority but until all
cuts are done they are not going to allow and pay for 50 people going
elsewhere to qualify, only to determine that when the next location is
shutdown those people who may be older in seniority will replace all
the others and will have to qualify, and the wave continues.....
And sadly the UNIONS are going to stand by idly and do nothing but say
, "Well we can't strike".
Well Bullshit I say

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.

Hamlet locomotive shop just went through a round of layoffs today. On
top of the layoffs, all of the rest of the employees were assigned as
"general workers" to work any job required and the shop itself has
been put to limited used. Now they are considering hamlet a service

RedBlock twice a year.  Hasnt worked 40 hours a week since REDI.  Takes
his shits only while on duty.  Sound familiar?  ApeFuck employees like

IG & IH will soon be combined.

All Train Dispatchers will be moved to Jacksonville.

T&E, MW, Mtnrs.... get ready to wait 30 minutes for anyone to answer
your phone/radio calls.

I hope every dispatcher quits/exercises seniority to prior craft before
letting this go through.

Dispatchers, I hope your union is ready for this atrocity.

Harrison's total pay package is north of $300 million. That's more
than CSX spends yearly in refreshing and keeping its locomotive fleet
running. That's also a large plan for a CEO, especially for a
high-profile CEO with health issues. A general recipe for
underperformance and disappointment is an overcompensated CEO with

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!

The conductors agreement has an article that covers on duty times for
assigned jobs. Coming in on a road train is not covered under this
agreement. If the yardmaster makes you stay out and work after your 8
hour shift is over and the next shift is supposed to be on duty there
is a claim for that.  I PERSONALLY watched a division manager rip the
ass off a ym for making a yard crew stay on their job while the next
crew sat in the yard office drinking coffee waiting for them to finish
up a move the YM knew they wouldn't get done in time and would roll
into the next shift. The engineer even told the YM at the beginning of
the shift he had to be off on time for a doctors appointment. The YM
didn't know the division manager was going to show up and when the
engineer went off on him on the radio for keeping him out there the
division manager heard it all. Made it clear he would see that claim
was paid and it would never happen again. Brought that YM down off his
high horse. Had a history of abusing the crews. Screwed their lunches
all the time and always gave them a late one!

So I hear things like avon sucks and it's terrible there, and comments
about combining pools and things. I think alot of us would appreciate
it if you could let us in on what's going on and where so we can get a
better understanding of what's going on with our jobs and what could
possibly be heading our way. 

What is happening at these places that are making it so bad? What
changes have you seen? What happened with the pools and how has it
affected you? How many jobs did it wipe out? I'm in new castle, and we
changed a few trainmasters. Allen Hall, tm, left today for avon. Another
guy came here a few weeks ago. So far, changing train symbols and
reorganizing freight on different trains, and doing our work a little
differently on line of road is about all we've seen. They added some
utility jobs and are in the process of calling some guys back. We lost
a new castle to wallbridge pool, but guys say that was coming for a
while. 

I'm not by any means sticking up for anyone or saying some don't have
it bad. Just thought I'd share what's happening here and see if anyone
can let us in on what's to come when he comes our way?

The problem with CSX is Greed!! They made over 1 Billion in profit last
year. They are only out to make more money at the workers expense.
Shutting down entire yards and displacing workers that have been loyal
for years, while paying the CEO an absurd amount of money. Some of the
new changes the CEO has made, is not only putting workers at risk, but
the public as well. Some of the FRA defects, workers have been told not
to shop cars, and some of the shopped tags are being removed by the
bosses. Hunter Harris main objective is to combine CSX with Candian

“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?

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.

We were told last week no more overtime on yard jobs.  I can understand
the actual yard flat switching jobs.  Time and time again, regular
assignment crews were sitting in the crew room waiting for the  power
that the crews making overtime were using.  We had times that crews sat
for 1-4 hrs.  without power while a crew is making overtime.  That's
poor management at the Terminal level. Not enough power for the crews? 
Good Mid-level Managers in business would get additional resources on
site so both crews could work. 

Unfortunately, this "Mid-Level Management Team" goes from one extreme
to the other.  Harrison wants cars moved in a certain amount of hours,
overtime for all! Harrison questions the overtime, no overtime period! 
The "Mid-Level Management Team", if you can call them "Managers" are
just bobble-heads with no clue how to manage overtime, customers, crews,
etc, etc, etc.  That issue is becoming more and more apparent.

Why do we pay union fees for? This is when a strong union force would be
able to go on strike for a week or so. Workers without unions have zero
leverage.

Most hump yds. are already old plus they are expensive to maintain and
operate.  Someone, somewhere will still have to handle, switch rail car
freight & that won't get done for free.

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