CSX Attendance Policy

NO!!! You CAN'T have a day off!

    The railroad practically invented the term 'on-call'. Many CSX employees do not have schedules, but are forced into working a 'list'. Most lists are on call 6 days a week, 24 hours a day, and often the employee cannot even choose their day off. It is common to be called to work during an assigned day off.

    Unscheduled days off are usually not granted for family or religious obligations. There are many CSX employees who have been unable to attend their childrens' birthday parties, their wedding anniversaries, and even funerals because they were not allowed time off.

    We've even heard of people who had to call out sick, to attend their own wedding! We're sure that some of these stories that can top even that one...

I'm taking it that Brian Edwards had a few minutes of free time again,
and has been lurking on this sight again? (now that he's no longer
having to keep tabs on who EX WIFE #3 is sleeping with at 31 E. Georgia
St.  Because we all knew it sure as hell wasn't him.  And can you blame
her? Seriously. How would you find his little pecker under all of those
HUGE rolls of fat?  )  

The post below sure looks like something Brian Edwards regularly says,
and of course would do.  Although.... now that Edwards has had yet
another wife has divorced him, he may no longer be as "protected" as
he use to be.  You know, like when he was married, and his wife was
having sex with Larry Kosner.

Hey Brakeman,  

I'm taking it it was another long day at work?  :-)   You might want
to reread what I wrote.  I wrote "CSX just put several thousand
employees on the street."  SEVERAL THOUSAND, not SEVEN THOUSAND.

Have a good evening

I think it's funny how this company demands loyalty from its
employees..especially the union employees. But here's a thought..Treat
your employees well and CSX wouldn't have to demand loyalty. When a
person or company demands loyalty that means they don't deserve it in
the first place. This company has went down so much..Ward and Sanborn
have killed morale. Oh well..investors should part ways with these two
before they ruin things any further.

The car operation in Selkirk has some top notch managers these days.
only a couple have a clue as how to run a yard. I'm surprised were
still employed with the back wards thinking of these guys. One just
yells and screams when things get a little screwed up. We are waiting
for him to blow up and assault some one.  Another will just disappear
and hope it all works out. Some of the others are just trying to get
through the day. I genuinely feel sorry for a few of them. Jacksonville
probably thinks they are doing a good job.

exchange , I think your numbers are off....... 7 thousand laid off?????
csx has about 28,000 people working for them and that includes t&e,
mangers, dispatch and everyone else. if they laid off 7000 people then
they would have gotten rid of 1/4 of there work force. I say maybe 2000
system wide in all departments and I'm sure that maybe on the high side

Stay where you're at.  Let me quote what several members of management
have told myself, and many of my co-workers on more occasions than I
care to remember.  "If want the holidays off, you'd better pray you
kill someone while you're on the train.  Because if you don't kill
them when your train hits them, and you take the day off, then you're
abusing the system.  I'll personally make sure you regret it."  Does
this sound like a member of management that you want to inspire and
lead you, let alone work for?

Here's one other thing to think of.  CSX just put several thousand
employees on the street.  In my terminal, if you don't have 5 years or
more, you're on the street, and quite possibly out of a job.  A few
years ago CSX offered all of the conductors with 4 years or less a
$3000.00 bonus if they would approve the Northern Mid Atlantic
Agreement (NMAD)  In this agreement, it clearly stated that if you were
furloughed (off work) for more than one year (366 days) you no longer
had a job.   The conductors only saw the $3000.00 (blood money) and
voted the agreement in.   Guess how many conductors this applies to
that got the blood money, and how many conductors this applies to that
didn't didn't get one red dime, yet will lose their jobs because some
of the conductors ahead of them, sold out their rights.

There's a reason that CSX is the only class one with a CSX-Sucks
website.  This is where the employees go to give everyone a heads up on
how EVIL this company is, what tricks management is up to and bemoan
what Tony Ingram, David Brown and their puppet Cindy Sanborn have done
to darkened the doors to this company.  

Unless you're ready to know EVIL on a first name basis, stay where
you're at.

Most hotel vans that I have seen appear to be newer and cleaner, perhaps
because they are not driven much. PTI buy USED vans (that's why they
are not the same color) and often have over 300,000 miles on them, with
many unmet repair needs. With recent pay raises PTI pay less than Taco
Bell, Wal-Mart, etc. despite having erratic routes, strange hours, etc.
Many cities do NOT let taxi's, etc. put that kind of mileage on before
dumping them. Railcrew express look newer, but I don't know the
details.

The number 1 complaint with this company is the management. Management
has no clue on how Railroad operations are ran. Warren Buffett had it
100% right when he said " CSX management is terrible". 
  The following could fix this company
 
1. Overhaul  management.  Start cutting from the top. There's to much
fat on the steak. Trainmasters,RFE, Etc falling over each other. 

2. Payroll.  Train those idiots on how to pay the employees by their
contract. Stop cheating them out of their money. This is the number one
hatred that employees have toward the company. 

3. Labor relations /payroll ...Just get raid of them all together. Go
with a mileage day equal to a 12 hour day daily. This would cut off
labor relations and simplifily contracts and the employees would be
happy. This would save the company millions. Less employees in labor
relations / payroll is less liability for the company. 

None of this will happen, but I'm glad to get it off my chest.

Well maybe the UP investors have seen the light..CSX investors are still
in the dark..but they are willingly in the dark..that's the difference.
Apparently these people are going to let Ward and Sanborn sink the ship
completely. Hope that they let them drown with the rest of us instead
of coming to their rescue. CSX investors are not very wise.

Well Oscar is just starting back to work at the airline after his heart
replacement. An investor group wants him replaced at the airline by
Gordon Bethune, chair about 2 official back. If Oscar gets booted out
of the airline business can he come back to CSX?

All the excess managers could also be utilized as trackmen, signal
maintainers, co. police officers, crew callers, -- even train
dispatchers.  What the hell - wherever an ape is needed in whatever
occupation.

Its ok to cut more jobs off. We have enough Trainmasters and RFE's to
run those trains. The management is falling over each other. People on
the outside look at this company as a complete cluster.
