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...

to m of w company suckie,
if i worked for  mcdonalds  i am pretty sure they would live up to the
agreement between the workers and the company, not say ill pay you and
then just not live up to the agreement  like the rail road does. 
but then if i had a cushy job like you,where i was home every night
maybe i would get a set of csx knee pads like you seem to be wearing,
and

or uncles scrotum when i hired out for as being a generation x y or zer

if you think fela is gonna help you you are wrong..the railroad opted to
be self insured for a reason.it is cheaper to screw employees than to
pay a premium they could not afford..they pay lawyers tons of money to
screw people..think not......go ahead and throw the dice....loosers..

You sound like a disgruntled ex-wife or girlfriend. With all this liar
stuff plus actually naming names. As for the Rangers, a cook is
probabley the most hated individual so he has to be tough, like a
friend of mine who was Airbourne plus a cook he said he had shells
cracking all around him all the time.

We have Railroad Retirement Sick Benefits. Which we pay in to, to get
money out of the carriers (CSX) for an on the job injury you have to
sue them under the Federal Employees Liability Act (FELA). Now under
our national contracts we do have a short term disability policy in
effect, that will pay up to 2 years.

In Alabama there is an EMPLOYEE named Jason Buckelew who has made so
many claims it is crazy!! For 1 claiming to be a US Army Ranger, He
never was an Army Ranger he was a FOOD SPECIALIST for the Ranger
division after he could not pass RIP school. He wears Ranger stuff
which he should not be doing so because of all the Great Men and women
who have died for our great nations. And NOW Mr.Buckelew is acting like
he is hurt and is on workers comp with CSX for bumping his head on a
door. Now he can't play engineer but can sit at home, stay drunk, work
on cars, not pay child support, and take care of a house full of kids.
What is wrong with that picture??? So is CSX letting this loser suck
off on there workmens comp while everybody else takes up his
slack!!!!!! He is a LIAR!!!!

They tell me they are hiring at McDonalds, You could work for 10 to
15000. a year there and still not pick your hours, instead you're
probably making 50,000 a year, whining, or you could work when you are
called and make 100,000+ and have benifits,I'm sorry , but I don't
feel sorry for you, If you are unhappy maybe the railroad is not for
you, I'll bet your generation X or Y, grow up!

Hello, I am on the Intermodal (Trucking) side of CSX.  I agree with Big
Money.  After watching this company change so rapidly in just a few
years, I am currently seeking new employment.  True, I don't care for
the policies of this company but I am at risk of having my job
abolished in the very near future.  The new RF system was recently
installed and within 2 weeks they had abolished 8 jobs, with more to
come.  But I am not the only nervous one.   Not only that the way the
employees are treated is unbelivable, unless you are a Supervisors pet.
 I am currently seeking that position also :).
The attendance policy is horrific.  FMLA is a joke.  And let's not
talk about the mandatory overtime, 20 min lunch (and you can't leave
the property)and while your on this whopping 20 min you can not close
your eyes or even be in the position condusive to sleep i.e. putting
your head down or even leaning on your own elbows.  End less
investigations for anything that this week has changed (didn't you get
thee email that said disregard the first three emails, management trying
to qualify you on a job that you had 30 minutes of training on.  And we
don't have a contract to stand on not to mention are they concerned if
we ever have one.  TCU seems to have their hands tied doing who knows
what as contractors on the property are doing union jobs.  sorry I got
carried away.  The point is the less money management has to spend
paying us, the more money they get in their bonuses.  Bottom line if
they get rid of enough workers there won't be a need for as many
supervisors!  So mind yourselves, as they are working us out of a job,
they are workiing themselves out of a job also.

Thanks for listening, I just needed to vent to some people who could
sympathize with me.

Please quit.  We don't need losers like you.  Bring on the FNGs! They
have a better attitude.

You older guys don't have the guts to quit.  It's easier to whine and
blame the company!

I also am with you. However, it was'nt a slowdown in Selkirk, rather a
management initiated work the rules 100% or else. I was there knee deep
during that fiasco. They marched in with their we're the boss and this
is how it's going to be mentality. We said fine we can do that. And
then the threatened to shut the yard down. Kind of like saying I'm
going to jump off this highway overpass whether you like it or not,
then crying that you broke your legs. Fraternally engineer 1 - 10.

Last year, the New York Transit employees wild-catted and got what they
were asking for! I ask this question, why the hell don't the UTU and
BLE-T do the same thing? I for one am sick and tired of CSX in
JackASSonville ignoring our agreements and putting these bogus policies
like the attendance policy in effect without anyones knowledge, so they
say. So far, I am terribly DISAPPOINTED with this Teamster merger with
the BLE. I had high hopes, I guess a dream, that Mr. Hoffa would step
up to the plate for us and be a little more aggressive than what we had
in the past! I guess not.........

IT IS TIME FOR A WALK-OUT TO GET THE ATTENTION OF CSX LEADERS AND
RESTORE SOME KIND OF MORALE BOOST TO THE RANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Blah, Blah, Blah. Everyone seems to moan and complain about what the
other craft is or is not doing. How one union craft is lazy or how the
other sleeps on the job.  I know it's great to release your anger, but
your doing it toward the wrong individuals.  Those other craft workers
that we work hand-in-hand with everyday are also know as UNION
WORKERS!!!!! They have duties to perform just like every other craft
worker and they're dealing with CSX's harrassment everyday, just like
you and I.  

I read stories about the company (CSX) did this to me or wouldn't let
me do this or didn't pay me for that.  Put those things in writing ,
save a copy for yourself and give a copy to your local chairman.  If
you have a half-assed local chairman he would maintain those complaints
until he had enough similar instances to take to managment. It's
important to document, document, document.  A local chairman can not go
into an invetigation, claims conference , or managerial meeting and say
well, so-and-so said this or that.  You elected your union leaders and
they need your help fighting the battles that you want them to fight.

The point to make is simple, instead of fighting with your fellow craft
workers, band together and stand as one in your daily fight for your
job, health and pay.  A united front will prevail as long as it is
truely united.

To Corporate office 1-10:

Alot of people have stayed because they have time invested in a
pension.  Its hard to leave any company in a situation like that.  If
CSX were more like Conrail, people would bitch less, work more, and
wouldn't even mind spending the extra time away from home.  Conrail
paid you for your work and honored agreements while CSX steals every
dime that they can.  CSX Still Sucks!!
