UP Mallard On The Western Region:

Why is Hannah so good at getting child molesters and wife beaters back
to work instead of switch runners?

Post from Train Orders dot com.

I don't remember a "no strike" agreement, unless it was for a very
specific issue, but the Supreme Court basically decided rail unions
cannot strike except for "major disputes" around that period. Of
course in the court's eyes there is almost nothing that rises to a
"major dispute" plus rail unions have to go through a myriad of steps
before they can get to the "self help" (strike) stage.

Would like to see that............

..Side letter 20 was one of the 1986 PEB board decisions. Someone
should remember the no strike clause back in the 1980’s. I’ve been gone
14 years now and have no contact with the BLE , Lee Pruitt or Hannah
anymore.

OK. Can find all the PEBs from 12/12/1955 thru 01/11/2016. Looked at
GC Hannah's site.  Haven't found a thing regarding a side letter with
referrence to a "no strike" clause.  Would like to see that.

Another person that may need to do some real homework, ie: read/review
the RLA.  Guess I will do that too................


Yes.. and look up “Side Letter 20”  In the PEB of 1985. Email Lee
Pruitt or DW “Bill” Hannah.

If the UTU & BLE could & did in fact agree to a no-strike clause back
then, just where is that recorded?  If true, how's come there was a
short-lived national rail strike in the spring of 1991? - and, rail GCs
can still request strike authority over agreement disputes - yes/no?

The Govt. \ Federal Courts have a lot of power.  Long story short:
A strike by RRers is not at all an easy thing to do, or even
try....................


In the late 1970’s, maybe early 80’s, the BLE & UTU signed a “No Strike
Clause.” Labor disputes go to a PEB Board (Presidental Emergency Board,
a board appointed by the President). After the 1985 agreement, the
board ruled in favor, 7 to 1  for the carrier on eight disputes arising
from that 1984 contract. In other words, Engineers and lost their ass.
Harden, from the UTU had already given away the farm in that contract
and settled before the BLE did, leaving them in a bad situation.  Thus,
we have the pre-85 and post 85-people. Hope this helps answer your
question a little.

If truly only been a RRer for less than 10 yrs., you probably are just
like a lot of others who don't realize how it works.
 
Use your head & some common sense - go online, read\review & try to
understand the Railway Labor Act.    RR cos. know all about it.   

Rail service interruption which could idle businesses & thousands of
other workers will not be tolerated very long. 

The Govt. \ Federal Courts have a lot of power.  Long story short:
A strike by RRers is not at all an easy thing to do, or even try.

Look at all you bitching and crybaby Trainmen and Engineers.
I wish as a California railfan I could have a Job like yours.
We can't even get a job interview with the UP when they are hiring
and
I would love to fulfill my boyhood fantasy and be a Engineer, even for
10 bucks an hour. I have a old head Conductor that is retired from
UP and his name is Virlon Smoot and he used to have me come over to his
place and play with his backyard choo-choo train and have male and male
fun. So you guys need to stop all the crying and whinning about your
great jobs you have and enjoy working on the railroad and
keep in mind that all of us railfans  love to give good head like me
and the others on Altamont press and Trainorders.com and HeadsUPcoast
fans that would just love to have your great jobs.

Sincerely
Dick sucker
Peter Ely
Buff your knob for a train ride.

CRAZY NUT CASE CHIEF AT IT AGAIN


Just got word that the chief is playing her dirty little harassment and
intimidation games again.  We got an east end extra board and a west end
extra board. That crazy broad is trying to order an east end extra crew
to go dog catch trains on the west side when there are rested and
available crews on the west end extra board. They pointed this out and
were threatened if they didn't go work the other side their
qualifications would be pulled. This isn't just a violation of the
union agreement but its a run around claim for the guys on the west
end. They are just trying to cut cost on recrews and cover up cost of
not getting trains in on time.  Where the hell does this chief get off
deliberately cheating  west end crews out of their work and being able
to make a living. Who in the hell is letting them get away with this
blatant bullshit. This time they have gone to far. Deliberate and
blatant violation of the agreement with deliberate harassment and
intimidation tactics to save money and screw pay from hard working crew
members who need to make a living.  THIS SHIT HAS TO STOP.  ITS TIME FOR
A SIT DOWN WITH BOTH UNION INTERNATIONALS AND TIME TO MEET WITH THE
STEEL WORKERS. NO WAY THOSE GUYS WOULD EVER ALLOW THEIR MANAGEMENT TO
WALK ALL OVER THEM IN THIS MANNER. TIME FOR SOME OLD FASHIONED UNION
MEETINGS AND FIGURE OUT WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE. WE CANT STRIKE BUT BET
YOUR BOTTOM DOLLAR THOSE STEEL WORKER BOYS WILL HAVE SOME GOOD IDEAS!

ALL CREWS


If you are receiving correspondences from anyone in labor relations,
payroll or any other department that your pay is not being issued as
submitted because information obtained from the GPS shows otherwise you
need to email Tim_ healey@csx.com. Mr. Healey is the Director of
Locomotive Engineering and oversees the installation of the GPS on all
locomotives. If there is a problem with the use of the GPS then he
should be notified immediately. This is an issue that should not be
taken lightly. Obtaining proper information from the GPS is a MUST and
any problems that are occurring must be addressed and resolved
immediately! Movement of all trains on the system must be documented
accurately. There is no room for error on this matter. The safe way is
the right way. Report any problems immediately. Your participation will
be greatly appreciated.

They have to know where trains are. Ask a dispatcher.
Denying penalty claims (even valid ones, for whatever reason) is an age
old tactic.  Uncommon that one is paid right away.  Have to submit all
info properly to your LC when claims are denied & hope that they're
handled & forwarded. Then be patient.  May take yrs.  If valid, the RR
eventually has to ante up -- at the pay rate applicable when submitted.
 Aggravating but the way it usually is.

CALL HOMELAND SECURITY


Labor relations is at it again!  Just denied my claim and 2 other guys
stating that the GPS data system says our trains never ran on the
territory we claimed.  THEY LOST OUR FRICKING  TRAINS AGAIN! THIS IS
BULLSHIT. HOW CAN A RAILROAD LOSE THEIR FRICKING TRAINS. HOW CAN THEY
NOT FIND OR KEEP TRACT OF OUR TRAINS AND WHERE THEY ARE TRAVELING. WE
HAD HAZARDOUS MATERIAL CARS ON THE TRAIN THEY LOST. DOES THE PUBLIC
HAVE ANY IDEA HOW INSANE IT IS THAT A RAILROAD CANT KEEP TRACT OF WHERE
THEIR DANGEROUS TRAINS ARE TRAVELING.

Maybe we should be calling the USDOT and tell them whats going on too!

The problem is that current RR management are not a team. They do NOT
want improvements. They are a TEAM in the sense that Hillary and the
Donald are currently campaigning as a team to help the electorate make
better choices. If you come up with a miracle additive that adds 20% to
fuel efficiency then you are the bad guy and a target. Somewhere there
is an official in charge of purchasing that and you made him look bad.
and, HE WILL TELL HIS COUSIN HIGHER UP ABOUT THE THREAT FROM BELOW.
Your trainmaster will take heat for having an employee who sticks his
nose in company business And this goes all the way to the top. A sharp
division general manager, if such exists, is a threat to many vice
presidents. A terminal superintendent makes the division guy look
bad...not good. If you want to rise on CSX you must play the not so
bright, member of the gang, absolutely non threatening to anyone
simpleton. These are good paying jobs for managers who cannot survive
in a competitive environment.And of course this absolutely means NO
action by a common engineer or clerk. Unfortunately we have engineers
with engineering degrees...very threatening, and PTI drivers with
MBA'S in Logistics...VERY scary. No way in hell do we want bright
people exceeding their pay grade. We have rent seekers observing the
Peter principle to the max. YOU are not a lifeboat selectee on this
mans Titanic, just one of the unfortunates that get letters of regret.
It should be mentioned that many officials are relatives, dear friends
and lovers, etc. So co operation just isn't in the cards.Maybe that is
true of life in general, but it is very obvious on the RR.

Engineer Mallard,  I don't think you work for CSX or you wouldn't be
saying such nice things about them.  Maybe you have been on their
Facebook page or you have some CSX engines on your model train set in
your moms basement where u reside.  CSX sucks in a big kind of way. I
could go on for hours about how they REALLY operate their business and
treat their employees, but i'll save my time as the real CSX employees
already know.

Bullshit with that. We here on this class 1 make a lot more than YOU
post-85 hoggers on the c-sucks corporation from the NS. We out here on
the West Coast know that.  Don't bullshit another BLE guy. We all know
who and what is being made. You must be blowing some of those TM's and
or RFE's over there like some of those SP Engineers in LA and
Bakersfield used to do to "kiss ass" and keep good with the officers.
Don't BS us on here. CSX sucks C*&K. 

Enough!
