When CSX managers receive their annual performance appraisals, it seems
likely that employee tests and failures would be a major evaluating
factor. The same goes for on-time train departures and operating with
as few employees as possible. And it seems very unlikely that employee
morale has anything at all to do with the process. It also seems to me
that safety programs on the class one railroads have morphed into
nothing short of harassment programs. And FRA is a cheerleader for all
of this. Constant employee testing and failures make it look as if both
the railroads and FRA are really serious about safety. But the fact is
that railroads are really only serious about their stock prices and
Wall Street standings. And of course the FRA is only serious about
being a bureaucratic government agency that tries to please everyone,
especially the railroads it is supposed to be regulating. And with all
of the serious railroad accidents that have recently been occurring,
FRA's house needs to be cleaned from top to bottom. And it needs to
start focusing on how the harassment of employees and unethical call
practices are having a negative effect on safety.

Are you kidding me??? watch a game? You must not be aware that the
manpower shortage is so damn bad that no one can stay home long enough
to watch a game and if they are home they are sleeping or being woke up
by the constant ring of the phone by crew callers running rosters.  Do
you know anything about the railroad? And these links have what to do
with CSX SUCKS SUCKS SUCKS SUCKS SUCKS!

FRIEND/FAMILY......SUPERVISOR


HA!  SO WHICH POST MADE MANAGEMENT ITCH THE MOST? WHICH POST MADE YOU
COME BACK ON HERE AND TRY AND DRAW ATTENTION AWAY FROM THE TOPICS AT
HAND. LET ME GUESS...YOU WILL NOW START WITH THE LBT CRAP AND DO YOUR
BEST TO DRAW ATTENTION AWAY FROM THE REAL PROBLEMS.... WAS IT LAW? THEY
SAY SOMETHING THAT THE LAWYERS DIDNT CARE FOR?  OR MAYBE ITS FRA
RETIRED. GOT SOMEONE IN MANAGEMENTS SHORTS IN A BIND?????

GOOD!  NOW LETS TALK ABOUT HOW SOME CREW CALLERS ARE STILL CALLING
PEOPLES HOMES AND LEAVING VAGUE BOGUS MESSAGES ABOUT JOBS THEY ARE
CALLING AND HOW THE IVR SYSTEM IS STILL SET UP TO ENTRAP PEOPLE BY NOT
LETTING THEM ACCESS TRUE AND ACCURATE INFO ABOUT THEIR OWN STANDINGS
AND POOL LINE UPS AFTER THE CALLERS HAVE STARTED RUNNING THE ROSTERS.
SURE IS FUNNY HOW YOU CANT GET ANY INFO WITHOUT BEING TRANSFERED TO A
CREW CALLER FOR IT. FUNNY HOW IT ONLY HAPPENS WHEN THEY ARE RUNNING
ROSTERS AND NEED SOMEONE TO DESPERATELY MAKE THAT MISTAKE AND TALK TO
ONE OF THEM TO THEY CAN ORDER THEM ON THE JOB. SO FUNNY HOW THE IVR
SYSTEM MAGICALLY CORRECTS ITSELF AFTER THEY HAVE THE VACANT JOB FILLED.
  CAN WE ALL SAY UNETHICAL TATICS AND AGREEMENT
VIOLATIONS!!!!!!!INFORMATION MUST BE AVAILABLE TO THE EMPLOYEES ON THE
IVR SYSTEM. AGREEMENT DOESNT SAY INFO MUST BE AVAILABLE EXCEPT WHEN
CALLERS ARE RUNNING A ROSTER AND NEED TO TRAP SOMEONE! YEAH..CAN WE ALL
SAY DEVIOUS MANIPULATIVE BEHAVIOR!

Being a CSX manager is one of the biggest jokes that I have seen in
years. You people think you are Gods. You're a fish on a big hook.  A
puppet, clown. CSX ONLY PICKS UP MANAGERS THAT NO  OTHER COMPANY WANTS.
Just take a look and see..   So keep strutting you piss ants... Jokes on
you..........

Good for you. The truth will set you free and maybe others as well.
There are a lot of employees who pack because they are scared for their
lives in some of the dark hole in the wall places they have to work at
night and there isn't a single soul around to protect them. The
railroads run through some of the worst neighborhoods and back alleys
of the country and in some of the worst industrial areas in the worst
cities. You are right though. A nut case with a mouth shouldn't have
one and if these train master know someone is packing and he kills
someone they should be charged with aiding in a homicide.
This Cameron isn't the same one from the great lakes is he?
If your new to this site, expect to be attacked and ridiculed if you
start posting info that makes officials and the company lawyers squirm.
They have moles who come on here to draw attention away from your post.
They will go to any length to discredit you and even gang up on you.
STAND YOUR GROUND AND HOLD FIRM. Don't forget to use your spell
checker. That is one of their favorite pet peeves to use against you
when they want to discredit your character!

while working as an senior engineer on watertown ny local job b778 in
January of 2014 I and another jr conductor on an other job got into an
argument that got pretty heated no punches or any threats were ever
said we have had problems before and I believe he and the engineer he
works with got together and came up with a story that I threatened him
coincidently this engineer steve spaziani was next in line senority
wise for my job and is on it to this day. they worked together for 12
hrs never called a boss even when one was present that day also work
another shift before coming up with same identical story even though
the engineer was in another room and then outside . I was taken out of
service but no cody zipparo who perpetrated the argument also I
notified the two trainmasters Michael camron and heath Mondragon that
engineer spaziani had and has been carrying a weapon(pistol which he
does have a permit to carry)they asked him about this and he told them
he sometimes get caught short and brings it to work but they still took
no action against him. I described the gun and would be willing to take
polygraph to verify the truth. the truth is, this man is dangerous, as
he has be severly beaten because of his mouth and has made statements
it would never happen again. it is a well known fact he brings it(gun)
work and mentioned the fact these trainmasters asked him and did and
continue not to do anything but me they harass me  over an argument but
as we know it takes two to argue so why me only. now just to set things
into perspective I do have a short temper have got into disagreements
in the last 40 yrs but never have I  hit or attacked anyone I have on
the whole always did my job to the best of my abilities  this no one
can deny as a final note as a stockholder of some 14000 shares in this
company it troubles me that these two trainmasters get away with what I
consider a fireable offences.. they are never around the terminal for
days on end only calling in once in a while lying about testing,
banners and such remember I work at this terminal for four straight
years and never have I seen such conduct as trainmaster Cameron and
trainmaster Mondragon it is a gross mistreatment  power and abuse of
this company. they also lie about the on board for customer service and
have as in case of Michael Cameron came to me and said just for record
you were bannered today. some will say I an a disgruntled past
employee. nothing is further from the truth. I have nothing to lie
about as I am now retired I would gladly tell much more of things on
this railroad in watertown and Massena ny but that is for another
time.

To the post below, cheaters will always be cheaters it will never end no
matter what job position they have, or what terminal they work at.
Railroaders, as well as other companies when you get men and women that
work together, there will always be cheaters. There are always men and
women that cannot be faithful no matter how hard they try (just emoral
people).The statistics show that if the spouse ever leaves their other
spouse, and gets with the person they had the affair with it will never
work out anyway.So my advice  is why don't you be good spouses and be
faithful .

Advice/Reality

Amen to both of you. You are both right. I have never seen more hens on
fence than on the railroad. I used to think women were the worst at
gossiping and starting rumors but they don't hold a candle to some of
the guys I work with. As for the clerk who posted on here, she better
keep her broom and dust pan busy. They cut our clerks and wagon drivers
down to an all time low. You cant get a ride when you need one without
waiting for over a half hour and they have hired  an outside cleaning
service to come in and do the work. Used to have a clerk, driver and
cleaning clerk on each sift. Now we are down to one.
Maybe she should consider worrying about that and talking to her union
reps about securing her job! The railroad is cutting every craft to the
bones!

Employee friend

I think you need to read advices post again. You didn't understand the
point of it. Advice couldn't have said it better. The point is it
happens in every type of businesses, even in your churches. And advice
was right! If she has a problem with men hitting on her then she should
tell them to stop or turn them in. In the meantime mind her own business
and quit worrying about what she said was rumors and stories. Take care
of herself. The work place is bad enough without all this he said she
said crap and worrying about what every one else is doing. The way its
going these women and men who do all this gossiping about whos doing
who wont have to worry. When the company cuts the crews in half and
turns everything over to computers these so called cheaters will be
looking for work somewhere else. AND GUESS WHAT! They will be doing the
cheating somewhere else!

Mr advice, it sounds like you are probably one of the ones that like to
cheat. Ask me why the opinion? because you would not get so upset about
this woman talking about being hit on if you weren't one of the guys
that was doing it wherever you work,.the men that get upset are the men
that wants it to be hush hush and do get upset when something is brought
to someone's attention." how dare you talk about the men that cheat
,we don't want our wives to know that this goes on on the railroad, we
want them to think we're perfect husbands".

U.S. Steel for a couple years and you guys are right on the money. WHAT
AN ARROGANT ASSHOLE THIS STUBBY BASTARD IS! He has fired about 12% of
the workforce and his little natzi supervisors who drink his cool aid
are just about as bad.
Keep up your bullshit Joel and someday the sun won't shine for you!!

If you decide to quit I wouldn't apply for a job at a truck stop, bus
stop or as a flight attendant. I sure as hell wouldn't apply for a
secret service job either. Oh, wait, that was all a bunch of guys
messing with the hookers. Guess that leaves all political jobs in D.C.
out as well. Don't bother working at a hotel either!  That's one of
the worst places ever. Cleaning staff are in and out of rooms so fast
you cant keep up with them. You better just quit and head for a church
or something. Man, that might not work either even though its been
awhile since a preacher man was busted for playing with his altar boys.
How about this idea? Just tell every guy that hits on you that you
don't appreciate it and if it continues you will just file sexual
harassment against them.  Think that might work. Bet they leave you
alone! Oh and keep busy with your mop and broom and maybe you wont
notice whats going on with everybody else. They make their beds they
have to lay in them. FLEAS AND ALL!

I work at CSX in Louisville.  I'm considered a clerk, runner, janitor
or whatever needs to be done.  I'm a female and I get hit on by so
many CSX men (single and married).  I feel sorry for anyone that is in
a serious relationship with a man from my area.  So much behind the
crap goes on between the workers and also the transportation vans that
take the men from one area back to another.  PTI workers would give it
up for 5 bucks literally.  There is also so many prostitutes that hang
out along certain parts of the train routes.  The stories and rumors I
hear are pretty disgusting !

read some news about the post about BNSF and the UTU running 1 man
trains on some BNSF lines. it was voted on by UTU members of that local
and it was voted DOWN! . if it would have passed BNSF would have been
able to run certin trains with 1 crew member and master conductors
stationed at various supply points to help the engineer if needed.
remember people crew consist are not negotiated in our contract. they
are by the railroads and the unions separately property by property

You left some info out. The trainers at the Redi center have been
telling every class that comes through that they will lose 50% of every
class after they get out in the field. 

Other than lifestyle of the job and lack of quality of life there are a
lot of other reasons why. Even the trainers at the redi center know
whats going on. Why don't they just tell them the truth, the whole
truth and nothing but the truth before they put them through training.
Let them walk away then. Would they lose their grant money if they
walked away from the school?  Good question!

Csx management is one big joke. The employees in the transportation dept
are tired of getting beat to death by the Trainmasters /RFE that don't
have a clue about the rules and regulations. The "officials" are so
dumb, they don't realize that the very people that earn they're big
bonuses can also take them away. You think just because this company
gave you a title that your better than us.. Well here's a news flash
... You are still crap, (and always will be ) just like us in the
corparate eyes of CSX. So the laugh is on you..
