Folks just wait until October 1 and see the new testing procedures
coming out.  This company and lost they're freakin mind...  Here is
one example " when a conductor stops you for a safety stop ( which is
one car length ) if the stop is shorter than one car length or 50 feet
( let's say it was an 48 ft stop ) which is less than the 50 foot
stop. Then the conductor is written up. The official will have a
measuring tool to check the exact footage. This is only one test of
many ....

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!

Spongebob is right, don't expect much. The unions and the carriers
conference is getting ready to submit section 6 notices now with the
hopeless goal of having a new contract Jan 1.  The carriers will ask
for things like one seniority for each railroad combining engineers and
conductors, no penalty for road/yard moves/switching, eliminating the
few remaining arbitraries etc etc. The unions will ask for 25% pay
increase, bonus, 2 more holidays, sick days etc etc.
The end result will be minor work rules changes, raises and cost of
living that will barely keep up with real inflation. The real sticking
point will be health care. Expect sharp increases in our share of the
cost or maybe trade health care in for a 1 time big raise and or bonus.
 Outside of union/carrier negotiations the government may start taxing
our "Cadillac health plan". Crew consist has always been handled
outside of national negotiations, but it's coming.

If your counting on the UTU and BLE to negotiate a decent contract,
you're outta luck.  Look forward to higher health care premiums, work
rule givebacks, and less time off.

POSTERS


Ignore the last post from LOCO...He is a supervisor trying to draw
everyone's attention away from important issues. He is also bored to
death and wants to start a nasty posting war on this site, Guessing he
is such a suck he has never had his pay stolen and his written, agreed
upon union rights violated or had another manager set him up so he
could get his failure quota.


Now back to more important things.

This site is just another of the endless examples of a place for the
spoiled, crybaby railroad employees to post their petty and sickening
grievances. I have been out here for over twenty years, and I love my
job. I appreciate my pay and benefits, and the opportunity to make a
great living, and to provide for my family. Since when did anyone say
that railroading is a glamorous, easy job, with wonderful hours? YOU
crybabies knew when you agreed to be hired that it will be a forever on
call job, no excuses to mark off. I am one of those people who
appreciate my employer, and am glad that they have a good business
model, and that we are making money. With the success of our company,
the sacrifice is that many, many employees MUST dedicate their lives to
keep it afloat. I have been able to find time for my work, and time for
my family. Sick and tired of the folks who demand, demand, demand! The
reward is stable employment, and great benefits and pay! I love CSX,
and those who choose to whine about their jobs, hit the road, please.
How about a greeter at Home Depot? (PS: I work on the Toledo and
Garrett Subs)

If the land you maintained for that many years Is part of your home and
you have been allowed to "squat" on it and make it part of your home
you need to get legal advice. You were allowed to use it and paid for
its use. You invested money and time into its upkeep and if csx NEVER
EVER STATED IN WRITING that you were allowed to do so but only at your
own expense without any chance of getting anything back from it then
you need to sue for groundskeeper expenses.

Ignore the remarks on your grammar..... Go see a lawyer.... every state
is different in regards to investment rights in property.   Will be
difficult if you didn't pay any property taxes, but if you have proof
you improved the property and your lawyer can show it has risen in
value because of your time, money and improvements, you may be able to
get some of your money back. You have a vested interest in it.


GO SEE A LAWYER!

Gail,
   If it is CSX's land and they are leasing it, I would think they
could stop the lease with proper notification. I am sure it is in the
lease agreement. I do feel for you and your family. 
   But Gail, if you are trying to speak with an appearance of having
some knowledge and professionalism, you really need some help. I do not
claim to be the best at spelling or grammar, but you have made my
set-backs look like nothing. 
   I wanted to copy and past some of your examples, but I would just
about have to do the entire post. The basic spelling and grammar errors
appear to be done by either a 2nd grader or a foreigner with 3 weeks of
English lessons.  
   If you are corresponding with CSX in writing, please please have
someone other than a family member proof read your stuff.

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.
