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 want Ward back.... Never thought I would say that. 
What do we do now to save our railroad before it's too late? Any
suggestions? What would happen if a lot of us all of a sudden started
selling our stock would that do anything? Someone thats smart should
come up with a good plan for us to follow before csx is completely
derailed.

i have read over the many comments and have my 2 cents to add.i have
never worked for the railroads.a new applicant orientation in 1976 at
southern railroad,now ns changed my mind then and i found other
employment.the idea of so much time on the rails and yard and not at
home would not have worked out nor living by the phone like sr wanted
like they were god would have not worked out.
  some of the bs you guys put up with from your superiors is just
that.the constant call ins,short on sleep,can't plan anything on a
family level,constant "rule" changes,job injuries,etc.ask for a day
off with reasonable notice--your then noted as being lower than snake
shit.too many bs rules and your union helping you?-tough shit.they only
want your monthly dues. y'all are rode hard and left out to dry.you
don't know whether to shit or go blind so to speak.
  in reading the comments,i thought i had some hard bosses but compared
to csx management and supervision, these people look like jesus christ.i
am retired on disability at age 62 and don't live in the past but i do
look back at my work for 40yrs and compared to the railroad it wasn't
so bad after all.
  y'all bust your butts to keep the trains moving.folks like me
appreciate your efforts,your pr by waving to folks going thru a
crossing.y'all would do better if csx would show appreciation for its
employees and treat all with respect and dignity and reasonable time
off for family obligations, funerals and birth of your kids.again as
john q public, i appreciate your efforts.my2cents in the pot.i read
your posts everyday and wish y'all the best.

Our union steward has been laid off for over a month.  Meanwhile  there
has been an ID pool lost and two of our pools have been combined.  
Response by said union steward  "O they can do that."  I've never
heard that one before.  I guess the carrier was just being nice to let
us have different pools.  Well  not NOW thank you.  


Whoever doesn't take two minutes to vote on their proxy is a damn
idiot.  Even if it makes no difference at least you cast your thoughts.
  

There is a slim chance HH "Mantle Ridge" money could be voted down.
              So FUCK Those GUYS  you think they care about us

“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

Harrison's regime has made operational changes. 
Sure would be decent of 'em to trash the present CAPS policy,
or at the very least, change it so an employee isn't penalized
and/or tortured with hassles for getting sick.

No, I'm saying specifically that coal IS making somewhat of a comeback.
 I attribute that largely to Trump. Many obstacles remain including the
cost of other fuels like natural gas has come down significantly and
they require less controls on the smokestacks.  The OP started the
thread by stating, essentially, that all a new CEO would have to do is
go after coal as if no one else has ever thought of that.

one edge that Hunter has, beside his reputation, is that there is no
competition. Who is the other choice? I would suggest talking to
Stanley McChrystal (sp?) and his management group, offering a 2 year
management contract with incentives but less than EHH wants, and
hopefully a less frenetic set of management changes that achieve the
same or better results in a manner that involves ALL the employees,
motivating them without the inept thrashing around that the OLD gang
and now the NEW gang seem to do. Just IMHO.

So, you also discovered Google!  Good for you.  Have you ever had an
Econ 101 class.  Where do you think the coal shipments went?  Were they
sneaking it down to the power plants in mini-trucks?  Or ANY trucks? 
Obama said there would be no new coal plants and then made it happen. 
The demand went away and the coal trains went away.  Now, there's a
new sheriff in town.  Things seem to have changed a little including
his ability to negotiate with places like China and they've increased
orders from us.  Who knows if that will continue?  So...tell me again
why ANY of those numbers mean anything because they don't.

Coal is primarily used as a solid fuel to produce electricity and heat
through combustion. World coal consumption was about 6,743,786,000
short tons in 2006 and is expected to increase 48% to 9.98 billion
short tons by 2030. China produced 2.38 billion tons in 2006. India
produced about 447.3 million tons in 2006. 68.7% of China's
electricity comes from coal. The USA consumes about 14% of the world
total, using 90% of it for generation of electricity. 

 6,743,786,000 short tons / 365 = 18476000 short tons world wide / day
(2006) 

 US use is 14% of that or 2587000 short tons daily (2006) 

 second reference: 
 Coal mining in the United States is a major industry, and reached an
all-time high of 1.06 Gt (1.17 billion short tons) in 2008, being mined
in 25 states. The US was a net exporter of coal in 2008, with the
surplus of exports over imports equalling 4% of the total mined. 

 1.17 billion short tons = 1 170 000 000 short tons or 3205400 short
tons per day 
 factoring in the export ratio, that is 3205400/1.04 = 3082000 short
tons consumed in the US daily (2008)
