A comment to the post about a trainmaster that is a weasel. I think i
know who it may be,because the trainmaster and superindendant work
together for years and are very good friends. They worked in
chicago,alabama, and indiana. I have heard things about them before.

CMC MANAGER

WE suggest you get out of your seat and office and start paying more
attention to your crew dispatchers. One of your callers on second shift
put two, not one, but two employees on hold for 45 minutes. These
employees had vital information that could have filled a vacancy that
would have moved a train 45 minutes earlier from its terminal. One of
these employees had been called earlier to be asked to work other
vacancies and when contacted told the caller that they didn't want to
work anything but their pool they were assigned to. According to the
employee the caller had a bad attitude and hung up on them. When it
came time to run the rosters for a vacancy of his pool, they called his
house for exactly 3 seconds. They made no attempt to leave a message or
contact this employee even though he had made it clear he would work
that pool. Several of us listened to the recording of the 3 second call
and we all know what happened is true. In the meantime the second
employee who was on hold knew the other employee was trying to get
through and was trying to help get the job filled. After being on 2
telephones at once for 45 minutes as well this employee got ahold of a
supervisor at the yard and told them what was going on. He was told how
long both employees had been on hold and if he wanted to get his train
out of the yard on time he better get ahold of a manager and tell the
caller to answer the phone. This supervisor did make contact with
someone in crew management and they instructed them to put the
volunteer on the job and get the train ordered. Did they do as
instructed? NO! Did they take the volunteers call? NO! At this time
there was absolutely no one available to work the train because of
severe manpower shortage. There was even a notation put in the
mainframe on lineups that it was the end of all decisions to fill the
job after trying to fill it for 30 minutes. This wouldn't have been a
problem if they had just bothered to answer the phone. The phone calls
have been saved and proof of all times the employees were on hold has
been viewed by a supervisor. We know the callers have caller ID. I
would hate to think they deliberately refused to answer the volunteers
call because he wouldn't accommodate them earlier and refused to work
the other jobs they called him for. We are not sure why they refused to
answer the other employees call. Maybe because they knew they were the
other employee who would also be on the job and thought maybe they
might tell them the other employee wanted to work and they couldn't
refuse him because there was no one else? The only reason the job got
filled right after the yard supervisor made his call is because an
employee called in to mark up from being off and asked the caller how
long it would be before he was called and they told him right away if
he wanted to take the vacancy. If that employee hadnt called right at
that moment who knows what would have happened. Who knows how much
longer the train would have been delayed just because they refused to
answer the phone! Mr. crew manager, if you think for one moment that
your callers are not rude or they don't play games then think again.
If you think they don't show favorites, think again! If you don't
think there is a pattern of who gets PB days while others can never get
any think again! Pretty soon the straw that broke the camels back just
might be hanging on yours if you don't start paying more attention to
your subordinates! 45 minutes on hold!  ARE YOU KIDDING ME. WHEN YOU
GET HOME I WANT YOU TO SIT IN YOUR LAZY BOY AND HOLD A PHONE TO YOUR
EAR FOR 45 MINUTES. YOU THINK THAT DOESNT SOUND VERY LONG!  JUST SIT IN
YOUR CHAIR WITH 2 PHONES TO YOUR EARS FOR 45 MINUTES AND SEE JUST HOW
LONG IT IS. TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOR AND DEFINATELY POOR BUSINESS
PRACTICES! IF THERE WASNT A FIRE IN THE BUILDING OR A TORNADO OR
HURRICANE EVACUATION THEN THERE IS NO REASON FOR THE PHONES NOT TO BE
ANSWERED FOR 45 MINUTES!

HEALTH ALERT

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE EXPOSED TO UNSANITARY TOILETS ON YOUR ENGINES
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO REPORT THESE ISSUES TO YOUR STATE HEALTH
DEPARTMENT. EVEN THOUGH YOU WORK FOR A CLASS ONE RAILROAD WHO'S
OPERATING RULES ARE REGULATED BY A FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AGENCY, YOU ARE
ALSO A CIVILIAN. THE STATE THAT YOU LIVE IN CAN CONSIDER YOU A HEALTH
RISK TO SURROUNDING BUSINESSES AS WELL AS THE COMMUNITY IF YOU ARE ABLE
TO SPREAD CONTAMINATES FROM YOUR WORK PLACE.

WHEN YOU STEP INTO A BATHROOM ON YOUR ENGINE THAT HAS SPLASHED OUT ON
THE FLOOR DUE TO POOR MAINTANANCE OF THE UNIT YOU HAVE NOW STEPPED IN
URINE AS WELL AS FECES. WHEN YOU LEAVE THE BATHROOM AND WALK AROUND THE
CAB, YOU HAVE NOW DISTRIBUTED THE CONTAMINATES ONTO THE FLOOR. WHEN YOU
PUT YOUR GRIPS AND TRAVEL BAGS ON THE FLOOR YOU HAVE NOW EXPOSED YOUR
PERSONAL BELONGINGS TO THE CONTAMINATION. YOU CARRY THESE INTO THE
HOTELS, PTI WAGONS AND INTO YOUR OWN PERSONAL VEHICLES AS WELL INTO ANY
YARD BUILDINGS. THIS IS A VIOLATION OF STATE AND FEDERAL HEALTH LAWS. IF
YOU TAKE CHARGE OF AN ENGINE IN THIS CONDITION YOU NEED TO REPORT IT TO
YOUR SUPERVISORS AND TO THE ENGINE HOUSE FOREMAN. DO NOT....I
REPEAT....DO NOT SET YOUR BELONGINGS ON A BARE FLOOR. SET THEM ON
PLASTIC BAGS. 
RETIRED FRA IS CORRECT ABOUT FILING A COMLAINT WITH YOUR
REPRESENTATIVE, BUT YOU ALSO NEED TO LET YOUR LOCAL HEALTH DEPARTMENT
KNOW OF THE CONSTANT EXPOSURES AT WORK. YOUR FAMILY PHYSICIAN MUST KNOW
ABOUT YOUR EXPOSURES TO UNCONTAINED URINE AND POSSIBLE FECES
CONTAMINATION. YOUR DOCTOR MAY NEED THIS INFO FOR FUTURE REFERENCES IF
YOU BECOME SICK AND IT IS RELATED TO EXPOSURE TO BODILY
FLUIDS/CONTAMINATES.
IF YOU DO NOT FEEL SAFE REPORTING THIS ISSUE TO YOUR LOCAL HEALTH
DEPARTMENT, YOUR PHYSICIAN CAN FILE A REPORT FOR YOU.

I was told that CSX hired many of the former NS management people. Is
this just a rumor? If it is in fact true, itís no wonder there are so
many labor problems. Back in the 1980ís NS had to be forced to buy
toilets for their locomotives. At that time, they gave the train crews
a bag to crap in, then toss it out the window. It got so bad that local
farmers, and others, were bitching so much, NS was forced to buy
toilets.

No employee has the authority to verbally give you permission to take
or borrow anything that is railroad property. Proper protocol must be
followed, with paper documentation provided by the appropriate railroad
representative.

Apparently, receiving anything from CSX is a crime. I remain anonymous
because I don't want CSX knocking my block off.

I collect C&S stuff and had permission to get some stuff. I can't say
locations. The matter went down the shitter quit.
I got to "choose" my equipment. I brought home something "new" to
borrow (signal)for a train show and yet again, I guess that's not
acceptable. Being young-but an adult, I didn't think anything would
happen.

CSX shit down my neck. The long story short, CSX special agents got
ahold of me on my cell from Jacksonville and wrung my neck. Threatening
to "arrest" me for it. I had no intentions whatsoever to make a scene
so I listened. Most old heads would probably shoot me. JW, the VP of
engineering wants me hung up to dry, They suspended the manager I
believe and wanted to charge me for what was considered "stolen
government property". The matter was left to bake in the sun. I
didn't want to push my luck...

My uncles are employees and they had no comments lol.

Sounds like there are a lot of wothless people working for CSX. First of
all i only see through reading these post that the men and women working
for this company, are only concern about one thing, and that is
who,where are they going to get their next piece of ass!!!!!!,strip
clubs,drinking,ect!!!!.

This company only promotes the trouble makers and do nothing with the
ones that accually do what their are suppose to.

SP

YOU GOT THAT RIGHT!!! Moral at an all time low and falling, lowest
paying class 1 RR in the country, Nazi southern ruling tactics(rule
with fear and intimidation)claims to be in a class of their own,and
refuses to sdopt GCORE rules that everyone else has used for years!
Funny though how they are slowly adopting the same rules as another rr
and shadowing them under different names. Funny how they just cant beat
anyone else for top safety no matter how much money and publicity they
throw out to the public. Funny how they have the all time turn over
rate of employees. Yeap, keep stuffing those white collar board members
pockets and whip and beat the real backbone of the railroad in the
trenches. What goes around comes around.... Karma is a bitch!

ď"Keep up the good work you bunch of girls...LOL.. Make our company
growĒĒ


Thatís a strange statement. As a CSX Officer, think about it a little.
I donít see a UPRR Sucks, I donít see a BNSF or even a NS scuk.com. on
the internet. rMaybe, just mabe some at CSX should take a close look at
themselfs. We all bitched a lot at the SP and even more at the UP, but
we didnít  have the feelings many of your employees seem to have. Just
a though from a retired SP Eng and X-Company Officer..
