Rumors have it that avon is trying to get the old transfer yard added
to their yard. Right now it is controlled by the Hawthorne yard but
avon wants it added as an extension to their. Been making road crews
take blocks of their trains 10 miles out of their advertised job
assignments and setting them in a siding for outbound crews that are
not part of their territory. Even heard they took portable air out
there to put them on. Road crews are being screwed by their locals
because they are not putting a stop to the crap and pointing out this
is not yarding your train.  Sure hope the yardmasters aren't claiming
these cars as going through the hump when they get their. That would be
falsifying their car count wouldn't it?  Unions better get their heads
out of their arses and get the trip rated increased or start getting
some hostling jobs put on to go outside of the yard because the remotes
cant go out their!  The bullshit is starting boys and girls. You better
get your LC's on board quick! There are several claims here and people
better be putting them in!

masters are working 12s also.

Corrupt Union Officers And Management Under Review:

In just one large terminal, a rail carrier compensates a General
Chairman and his local chairmen, two thousand monthly [4-each] to
circumvent the Federal Rest rules. The agreement forces engineers too
mandatory undisturbed rest in order to avoid Federal Rest
requirements...and by doing so, the carrier saves approximately 
$400,000.00 monthly and or $4,800.000.00 annually for eliminating 42

The General Chairman's rationale "An engineer should not be subjected
to rest requirements when their work assignment is less than 200 miles.

The General Chairman hasn't worked in 20 years and yet is always on
the receiving end of "Company Business" assignments and in--direct
conflict of the Bylaws for "full time" paid union officers.

My prediction for this company...... As I see it, The T &E employees
hate this company with a passion.  Managers are fallen over each other,
and they lack people skills.. CSX thinks that they're employees are
disposable. Most company's protect good employees and get rid of the
bad ones.. Not this company .. If little Johnny screws up then we all
get screwed ... This company is going down hill at a high rate of
speed.. By 2020 this company will barely be floating.. Don't go in
debt because you will lose as well.....

What the hell are you talking about. What job works 8.5 and gets paid
12. I don't know of any. Almost all road crews work on trip rate and
most don't even start overtime until they have been on the job for 14
hours. Who wants to sit on a train dogged for 2 hours just to start
overtime.  The local jobs that can be set back to 100 mile day from the
130 and start overtime after 8 hours might work longer than needed to
make descent pay for all the crap they have to put up with, but not any
road crews.

Wait.... you weren't making a joke were you. You suggesting they work
8.5 and sit on their arsses the rest?   HA.... Don't know where you
work but hard to do when you got supervisors shadowing you all day and
on-boards to lie on!

From an Investor:

As far as train crew pay goes - it was the RR cos. that wanted that.
Old 100 mile day = overtime pay didn't start 'till after 10 hrs., 15
min. of on duty time for road workers.  Nowdays, with a normal day of
130 miles, overtime starts after 8 hrs. All the business \ traffic,
all the regulations/rules, the long hrs. today - it bites 'em in the

Poor knowledge, poor vision for the future, poor - on & on. 
Others have posted csx should be doing a whole hell of a lot better,
and that is no doubt true.  Gave up and moved all our investments to
better\safer areas.  At present, Csx stock is worth 1/4 what it really
should be.
Need to weed out\get rid of,  upper level managment people.

To Ray:
Sorry, you are ignorant - ignorant doesn't mean dumb or stupid.

That post is another example why people need to do some research,
know some history, learn the true facts before they blow off.
[T&E employees have had more & more work & responsibilities thrust upon
them by the carriers....obviously, you have no clue.  The UTU
afl-cio thing is another long story.]

Pissed me off.   Have seen & been around plenty of car. dept., etc.
people that get paid for at least 8 hrs. each day & aren't worth
squat. Could cite instances\write volumes. In actuality, that craft's
job responsibilities & losses are their own fault. 
Use your brain:  don't ever rely on "I thought" or "I heard".
Doesn't work.  --  Know the for sure facts.  

Keep voting conservative pro-business representatives into political
offices and things will just keep getting worse for the blue collar
working people in the good ol' usa.

Don't you people know why CSX wants high employee turnover?
Because train crews were costing tens of millions in overtime pay. If
you work 8.5 hours you get paid for 12. This rule was an incentive for
crews to work as slowly as possible. A high turnover rate prevents
employees from getting buddy-buddy and conspiring to rip off CSX. 

Now, don't get me wrong. I hate CSX with a passion. But, the
prima-donna train crews took work away from other crafts. Remember when
the AFL-CIO suspended the UTU? 

At least now it is every man for his self and not train crews vs
everyone else.

Yesterday it was brought to my attention that an employee reported to
work with a fever and laringitis. This employee could not properly
communicate with other crew members and put others in seriously unsafe
working conditions. Because the employee was in fear of being
disciplined (points applied) even though he would have had a written
doctors statement to be off he chose to report to work and put others
in harms way.

If this happens again you need to call the fra immediately and report
the incident. Second, a supervisor on duty should be put on notice of
the workers condition. If they allow them to work and someone is
injured the company will be liable. If they send the employee home they
SHOULD NOT have any points added to their progressive discipline file.
If they do they need to contact Osha and the Fra to start an appeal.

For those of you that are having trouble getting into your caps records
to review your "points" of progressive discipline accessed to you for
staying home sick, don't feel frustrated. As usual the company has
once again given out inaccurate info on how to log on.

Log into the internet through apps.csx.com  or the site you use at home
to view the crew screen for train schedules and personal info. 
After logging on to the internet explorer page enter the word (caps) in
the search bar that says "search this site". Make sure you put the
word caps in ().  Several sites will come up. Select the one that says
crew attendance points system with the word (Caps).

Four selections will pop up on the center screen. Select TITLE.
Select CAPS in the upper left hand corner and your info should pop up.
If you have problems call the chessie help desk. They have been flooded
with calls and are aware of the bad info that was given out. Just
another good laugh for them. They were expecting this to happen and
were prepare for a flood of phone calls.

I'm not a T/E guy but its unbelievable what they have to put up with
here. Their officials are so twisted and untruthful...its sad really.
They bully and harass these men. I've never had a official be like
this to me but the T/E employees have a lot on their plate with this. I
have complete confidence in our team here but it seems like their
officials are so dishonest and harass them. Is that really safe to mess
with men that are tired and just honestly wanting to do a good job and
make them feel like crap everyday. CSX really needs to be thankful they
have such good workers here. We all care so much but why cant these guys
just get a break with the harassment. We have a awesome safety record
and plan to keep it that way. Its because we come into work and are
rule compliant. Its not because of power hungry officials. I wish I
could help them...retaliation is a definite at St.Louis... if there is
anyone out there with some pull to help ..please do. This really needs
to be looked into. All of us at East St. Louis would be much
appreciated with this. thank you and be safe guys!
