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...

well, it's not directly relevant, but note that even many fast food
workers now have tuition assistance and health insurance. as well as
$15 per hour. CSX are working towards a hostile work environment, less
health care, and inferior pay. We haven't reached taco bell yet, but
we are drifting gradually down as other jobs - with much less
responsibility - are climbing up. how far can it go before people
realize that we aren't that great?

BAD NEWS!!

UTU lost its battle over the 48 hour rule for conductors to make a move
when displaced. No one knows for sure how long it will be before mass
mailing and emails are going to take place to notify the members that
there was an agreement that members will only be allowed a 12 hour
window to place themselves.

If you are a newer employee and are unable to find a position to place
yourself in the 12 hour period( 48 as of now) then you have the right
to call the Manager of crew operations and demand a place be created
for you or they need to put you on furlough. You have a right to file
for railroad unemployment if you are not holding a job position with
the company. The railroad unemployment office will want to see a note
put into your employee history that you have been furloughed. DO NOT
SIT AT HOME FOR WEEKS AT A TIME trying to find a place to go. The
company has left employees hanging in the wind with no place to go for
weeks at a time. If you are not working and can not hold a job position
then you are not an actively working employee with the company.

if you want to see a out of control circus, then pull up a chair and
watch what CSX will be doing in the next few months. Lots more cuts, T
& E and Managers. Cuts and havoc will continue until Dec of this year.

I wish investors really knew what was going on out here. If they knew
Sanborn would be out of here. She has ruined this company. It will take
years to undo the damage she has done, if it can even be fixed at this
point. Sad thing Sanborn is only concerned about her own pockets. Aso
long as she is getting richer that's all that matters to her. Why
investors keep her in her position I will never understand

THERE IS A RUMOR GOING AROUND THAT CSX / CINDY IS RECONFIGURING THE
SYSTEM TO HAVE 3 CORE ROUTES AND 3 CORE FEEDER LINES, WITH STRONG BIAS
TO ONE WAY RUNNING, SO A SINGLE CORE MIGHT ACTUALLY CONSIST OF 2
RELATED LINES, ONE FOR EACH DIRECTION. NOW.....IT APPEARS THAT AVON TO
ROSE LAKE / SALEM IS NOT ON ANY RETENTION OR PRIORITY LIST, LOGICALLY
MEANING THAT THE AVON YARD AND MAINLINE WEST COULD BE SOLD TO SOMEONE
ELSE. ANY HINTS OR THOUGHTS?

The System is Rigged and The Fox is Guarding The Hen House:

Union Pacific's HR Department in Omaha, nearly every senior company
representative has had prior employment with the state and federal
government's EEOC office. The EEOC offices are revolving doors for all
future employees. And also, the UP will encourage current employees to
seek employment opportunities at the EEOC offices, as a means for
gaining access to cases that may be detrimental to the company.
This influence is similar to current employees who are on extended
leaves of absence...while employed as FRA representatives for the
federal government.

Did the BLET AND UTU sponsor the Csx race car? Is that their logo

Would any employee like to donate or sponsor our race car? You could
consider donating your bonuses for the next few years. Wait, you
probably aren't going to get one. Well, anyway just consider it.
Please pass the word to the furloughed employees to.

RE; Local Chairman // Vest Pocket Agreements.

The BLET (Bible) Bylaws allows for the General [Chairman] Committee
(GC) to make their owned rules. And those rules can be to the detriment
of your agreed upon Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA)...especially
if your GC and Local Chairmen (LC) are in a personal agreement with the
carrier to sell you out. Railroads have numerous ways to funnel
kickbacks to corrupt union officers to save cost. If one hundred
engineers are due a thousand dollars in claims, it only takes one
corrupt union officer to throw those claims away, and the union officer
will be awarded a weekend-off with pay for attending a bogus safety
meeting.
Follow the money...ask and demand for disclosures from your union
officers because they will sell you out for a weekend-off with pay!

Yard Rat

Did you get your question answered?  

I bet CSX failed to mention while you were in Atlanta that you WOULD be
laid off.  How much money they make from running students through
school, especially veterans, and how hard management works to fire you,
once you're finally marked up

Good luck staying marked up.  Things are getting thinner and thinner,
as CSX works hard fire as many people as possible.

Hey csx the Crash Railroad.

While I'm not surprised that CSX would beat out every class one, when
it comes to wrecks, I would like to read and share the article that you
are talking about   

Would you please post a link to the article you are referencing?

Thanks

Hey!
We just beat out UP for the most and wild derailments in the US.
We should have gotten the tracks closed to the house.

Oh, well. This job sucks more and more every year.

ALL EMPLOYEES


Ok people, LISTEN UP AND PAY ATTENTION!  It has been voiced by too
numerous a number of members to count that there is a serious problem
with communication within the crew management center. 
 Now, we all know that is has been a pain since they went to the IVR
system. Wait times to reach a live crew caller were a problem when it
was new, but now that it has been in the works for years, there should
not be the lengthy on hold times that are occurring!

There are several complaints that have been forwarded to the General
chairman's office bringing to our attention the blatant violation of
the union agreement that allows an employee to call back in 10 minutes
because when selecting to 'REFUSE" a call because you are not
qualified or you aren't sure what the job is and need to ask, the IVR
instructs you to hold while you are transferred to a crew caller then
puts you on hold for 20 minutes or longer.

There have been several crew callers that have put miscalled charges in
the employee's record while they were on hold the entire time trying to
get through and refused to remove them.
MAKE SURE YOU TAKE ALL CALLS ON A PHONE THAT SHOWS WHAT TIME YOU
ANSWERED THE CALL AND HOW LONG THE CALL LASTED.  YOU ARE EXPECTED BY
THE CARRIER TO COMMUNICATE WITH AN AUTOMATED SYSTEM IN PLACE OF A LIVE
CALLER. IF YOU ANSWER THE PHONE IT IS NOT, I REPEAT, NOT A MISSED CALL.
IT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE A LIVE PERSON TO BE CONSIDERED MAKING CONTACT FOR
A CALL. IF YOU ARE LEFT ON HOLD BEYOND YOU 10 MINUTES AND ARE THREATENED
AND RECEIVE A MISSED CALL YOU NEED TO FILE ETHIC CHARGES IMMEDIATELY
AGAINST THAT CREW CALLER. MAKE IT VERY CLEAR THAT YOU DID NOT MISS A
CALL FROM CREW MANAGEMENT. YOU WERE CALLED BY THEIR IVR SYSTEM AND
PLACED ON HOLD BEYOND YOU AGREED TIME LIMIT AND THEREFORE YOU
CONTRACTUAL RIGHT WERE VIOLATED BY CSX CREW MANAGEMENT.
THIS IS NOT A JOKE PEOPLE. IT IS GETTING OUT OF CONTROL AND THE WAIT
TIMES AND LACK OF COMMUNICATION IS OUT OF HAND AND FRANKLY SAD AS WELL
AS UNACCEPTABLE BUSINESS PRACTICES. FILE THE CHARGES. ONLY YOU CAN GET
THIS UNDER CONTROL. DONT SIT AROUND BAD MOUTHING YOUR UNIONS WHILE YOU
SIT ON YOUR REARS AND DO NOTHING. NO ONE IS GOING TO DO IT FOR YOU. YOU
PAY DUES DONT YOU???  THEN PUT THEM TO WORK. START FILING THESE CHARGES!
