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...

Not complaining anymore.  If CSX doesn't care about my health, family,
or quality of life, then I don't care about CSX either!

If you get hurt in any way, fill out those green accident reports! 
Works safe and by the rules, we all know how its slows things down.

When it comes to reporting time, steal every penny you can, I'm gonna!
 If they want to break up my marriage, they are going to pay!  Everyday
is now a 12 hour day.

Stop reporting things with all these junk engines, let them fall apart!


If this is the new way of life, having none, the worst thing you can do
is help the company.  

Like Cindy said..."They are confident this new policy will address
your concerns and support a POSITIVE, PRODUCTIVE, AND REWARDING WORK
EXPERIENCE FOR EVERYONE!" 

Who says you can't make money and screw the company at the same time?

FUCK CSX!  They are not your friend.

It's like that everywhere -- industry \ job.
Every craft, contact or non-contact.

Damn FNGs.
 
Some are OK. Respectful.  Anxious, interested, & willing to learn & are
not lazy.  Majority aren't that way & probably never will amount to
crap.

"This company really,really doesn't want the employees to spend any
time with their wives,children,grandchildren,or their parents...this
isquality of life ladies and gentlemen......"

Deal with it. When you get the seniority to have a better quality of
life this won't be an issue. Bide your time just like everyone else
did before you. 

These young guys that hired out the past five years have a very lousy
work ethic. They feel entitled to the same thing old heads with better
seniority enjoy but without the work or time involved. Sorry pal but it
doesn't work that way. 

These new employees are the reason we now have this slacker policy
because they ruined it for others with excessive layoffs. 

Don't like it? Tough shit. Hit the bricks buddy. Tired of picking up
the slack for your lazy ass.

first off , before I post im not a manager and I think most of the
managers here are idiots . well I like the new attendance policy. I
think all the whiners here are probably the ones who abuse marking off.
for example ,if I mark off  sick 3 days in a row during the week . old
policy I would be getting a first step letter. new policy I have 12
point and no letter!!!!!! couple months goes buy and no sick days and
now im down to 6 points. see I have personal day and daily vacation
days I use to mark off { I use sick days if the days I need are taken}
so I only mark off sick like 6 times a year or so. this policy is to
taken down the abusers and other people who don't abuse who may get
sick and take off 2 or 3 days don't get harassed with letters

Sometimes, side agreements are made between the carrier & the union(s)&
the the masses don't get hard copies.  


B&O Conductors And Trainmen Agreement:
 
Rule 100 (Crew Consist), Section 7. Employment  - 

A. "" The Carrier will maintain, through recall of furloughed
trainmen and/or hiring of new employees, a sufficient number of regular
and extra employees to permit reason layoff privileges and to protect
must-fill vacancies.

B. This Rule will not have any bearing whatsoever on the administration
of discipline procedures, or the amount of discipline assessed, in an
effort to reduce the list of protected employees.
If at any time the General Chairman feels that this commitment is not
being honored, prompt conference will be arranged to review the matter
and whatever steps are warranted will be taken to alleviate the
complaint.""


Now IF that is all still in effect & the same now days, then the UTU
B&O & csx need to get together - & inform all affected, at least those
members still governed by this contractual agreement, just what are
considered reasonable layoff privileges, etc.

Why iisn't attendance policies part of the contract?   They should and
could be.   There is enough silly shit in there.   Ingram sure had the
bid system shoved down the engineers throats when he was here.   Was
the bid system not  to control  layoff?   Is this not attendance
issues?   Anything can be placed in a contract.   I believe most Union
members want this addressed in contracts.  The ble just happened to
sign their contract right before this notice was released to the men. 
This was no accident it just didn't work out that way.  This was all
carefully planned out.

The csx attendance polices are written - by co. dorks.

They are NOT union contractual agreements.

We'll see....
Just another csx screw up:  before long, more employees will apply for
FMLA leave & will probably be awarded such.  
Many already have.  Many more could.  

Brain dead ignorant stupid corporate ......

To stockholders:  Idiot management! 
Could be doing a hell of a lot better financially. Sad.
Stock should be worth at least double what it is. 
\
When is this Co.'s Board Of Directors going to wake up 
& realize that the past few years' policies are not working
- & will not, & then clean house?

Glad, fortunate & lucky to be outta there

I'm all about paying union dues and being a union member.   We
couldn't work for csx without an union or at least I wouldn't.   That
being said when I pay dues to my union monthly and all my co-workers do
as well.    I expect representation.  I expect the details of a
contract to be defined and understood before it's signed.  I expect
not to be harassed by the company with silly ass attendance policies. 
I expect my valid claims to be handled and payed in a timely manner.  I
expect my LC to keep his mouth shut about me wanting a day off.  When he
is seen getting drunk on social media while he's off union.   I expect
my union brothers and sisters not to be sleeping with the enemy.  I
expect my L/C not to take company positions or safety suck jobs. 

This attendance policy effective 3-1 would never happen if we had a
union not in bed with the company.   Correct me If I'm wrong but has
the utu or ble addressed this on their websites.  No they have not! 
Just like previous attendance changes not a damn thing will change.  Is
it not funny that the ble signed their contract right before this
bullshit.

I hope it doesn't happen if right to work is ever the law of the
land.
There will be a lot of brothers and sisters stop paying union dues
because our union is so passive with all csx's bullshit.

A buddy of mine who works for the former SP and now the stupid pacific
in LA told me we should all lay off at once "Rule G" Operation
Roadblock and force these class 1 College educated A holes to go out
and work for us and if they threaten to fire us, tell them to stuff it
and walk. These assholes are the ones that are killing this Industry
over profits. And yes, Fuck the UTU. They all suck anyways!

Our no good utu and ble lc are both laid off union again.   New system
notice released on attendance effective March 1st.   We all know
they're    not doing a damn thing but setting home beating their meat.
 I wish that  short fuck would work at least one weekend with the rest
of us.  Maybe just maybe this would be as issue with him.  I'm not
sure how the new utu lc will do  or where he stands but the ble lc is a
short no good bitching little fucker who thinks he's a rfe.  He handles
claims like my insane granny.  WE ALL KNOW CSX SUCKS COCK.   LET ME TELL
THOSE WHO DON'T KNOW THE UTU AND BLE SUCK  BIG COCK.  I FIND IT FUNNY
THAT THE CONTRACTS STATE HIS IS A CLOSED SHOP JOB AND THERE ARE MEN AND
WOMEN THAT BELIEVE THE UNION NOT IN BED WITH CSX.

uNION BUSINESS ON THE WEEKENDS AND HOLIDAYS NEED TO BE A THING OF THE
PAST.

HEY CINDY IF YOU HAD A REAL MAN KNOCKING THE BOTTOM OUT OF THAT THING

Wondering if there are any other multiple million dollar companies whom
treat their employees like grade school punks.....the respect that is
shown to the hard working contract men and women of CSX is quite a
shame to say the least.....and now if we are sick we get a scorecard to
keep up with .....sounds like a flu epidemic will soon be striking the
company....instead of not infecting anyone by staying at home everyone
will become infected......just hope no one gets Ebola cause the whole
company will get it....wipe us all out....thanks Cindy ....you must be
one proud American ....any chance of a company provided face mask to
wear like the Chinese have adopted?......
