Hey no name/ other who posted on January 16th


Real easy for you to take pot shots at someone who posted the whole
truth and nothing but the truth. No body is going to take care of you
but YOU out here. 

You obviously don't know how the rr unions work these days. Yeah stop
paying your dues. When you have been in arrears long enough they can
officially kick you out or notify you that they are not longer
obligated to represent you since you are in violation of the members
constitution they will then notify the company that you are fair game
to target and FIRE!  Doesn't cost the union a thing but a monthly dues
payment! The new hire warming the seat at the school will be ready to
take your place! Unless a person is ready to get fired or  has another
job lined up, I would suggest they pay the mafia money because they are
NOT GOING TO BE THE SHOT HEARD AROUND THE WORLD when they quit paying
their dues!

GOOB


SCREW YOU!  You got a lot of nerve making that comment. Paid a lot for
merely staying awake. You must have been a professional train rider who
checked into the hotels, drank, chased the skirts and rode on everyone
else skirt tails. You have just insulted hundreds of hard working
employees who freeze their asses off for months in the pouring down
rain and sleet and ice storms and sweat their asses of in 100 degree
heat index and humidity you could cut a knife with. Lets not forget the
big brother watching their every stinking move along with the so called
supervisors cracking their whip at every step if they don't think they
are going to get their car quota or train departure times. God for bid
they have to listen to Jackassonville ripping their butts on the phone!
Oh and lets not forget that everything that goes wrong is the crews
fault 99% of the time! Answer to the erad, trip optimizer and PTC. Yeah
real easy coming from someone who probably rode the caboose while
drinking with his supervisor and didn't have someone watching his
every move to try and get a failure on his belt to make Jacksonville
and their lawyers happy. Go back to your easy chair and leave the
railroading to the real men! I would love to see you pass an operating
rules test these days! You wouldn't last 5 minutes in the field. I bet
they could get 20 failures on you the first 2 minutes!  We have so much
mental crap forced on us in this job it would blow your old head booze
soaked mind! 
Scan the ground, look where you walk, keep 3 points of contact,repeat
swithes are lined, Im in the clear, location, location , location! Keep
your vest closed, hands out of your pocket! Don't look behind you if
your walking, don't stand on the bottom step, don't ride a tank car,
don't forget your book, bulletin, temple stick, 6 switch tags, snow
boots when it gets cold outside, side shields! Make sure your water
bottle is in the trash of "Off with your head, your causing a slip
trip and fall hazard!" Put a big X on your ec1 or the world will come
to an end! DONT EVER EVER EVER READ ANYTHING THAT ISNT RELATED TO YOUR
JOB WHILE ON DUTY and BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH says the supervisor moving up
in the ranks!

Hows that recliner feeling!

A diatribe:

If the CEO of CSX Trans. truly earns 12 million (bonuses,salary, stock,
& that probably doesn't include expenses)
- the csx board of directors & the stock holders must be OK with that. 
12+ million.  Insane.  Vote 'em all out.

How many centuries would an average Joe blue collar worker have to
labor to earn that amount?

Like to see upper level's & the bod's attendance policy - except
don't really want to 'cause no doubt, if there even is one, it's
nothing like the ones the workforces abide by.

It's mind boggling when a so-called big shot says they worked & worked
hard for their type of compensation.   
So, someone who pounds spikes, shovels ballast, & handles ties by hand
doesn't work hard?
The maintainer out in horrible weather, the crew trying to knock cars
around in awful conditions doesn't work hard?

Can't gut reading\reviewing annual reports.  Business, whatever is
need to read.  Compensation for part-time so-called big-shots?  = 
Again, Insane.   

When is upper level management (this includes stockholders) going to
realize this outfit is nothing without dedicated, good employees?  

For at least the last 3-4 decades, the cos. have ruled a lot.

Workers & Unions perfect? Of course not. 

Hope it will not be (ever again-read history) like the company vs.
labor wars of yesteryear.

The CEO of CSX makes more than 12 mil and the reason is. He is worth it.
Feel free to apply for the job anytime you wish. If you are marked up
and taking the calls you can earn a lot of bucks, for doing very little
more than staying awake. Good lord Wake Up. The RR industry is doing
well, and CSX is doing the right thing's to make your life better.
Drop the Attitude, get a grip, and go to work.

This job makes me sick watching CEO make 12 mil a year in salary,
stocks
and bonus. Only to have payroll nickel and dime you to death on every
check... Seems like every 2 weeks they are hitting people for money. I
know a bunch of people last year that had thousands of dollars took
back from claims that happen 1+ years before that. Guys are scrambling
trying to figure out if it was correctly took back... On top of that
CSX has screwed the conductor extra boards out of pay raises and took
conductor bonuses...  

UTU doing a great job making these agreements and getting outsmarted
by
the company. Conductors lost majority of claims for 2$ a trip, Lost
bonuses, No pay raise on guarantees' extra boards, extra boards still
paying 85%, lost all personal days for employee's if you don't make
vacation, made a furlough board that company uses as extra board
paying
employee's 350$ a week.... UTU sucks about as much as the company.
Engineers doing great on agreements.

This is a note for all of you newbees. when i hired out on conrail, when
we had to take rest, you got that in a rr ymca,lol that name, cuz those
y,s sucked, they were set up just like a army boot camp type of thing,
you had no privacy at ALL... A big wash room with 20 sinks & 20
toilets, some even had just a cloth sheet were you would sleep like
right next to  another guy and the sounds and smells were horrindus,
plus some yards had these ymca,s right in the middle of hump yards were
you could hear those retarders squealing 24-7 and the horns blowing, and
yes some of those old heads loved those type of places and many even
bitched when they closed all of them down, I heard many a stories from
the kids the y would hire to take care of those places, some of them
told me of vomit and shit that they would find in those sleep places,
on the floor on the blankets and i know they were not lieing, and some
of bitch about laying in some motel for 20 hrs, ha ha would like to see
what you would say after spending 40+ hours in one of tose old ymca,s
and some did not even have ac, so in the summer you roast yer ass off,
that is why when i got on the less than 100 mile locals, i got another
car and kept it at that away from home terminal, many did that so they
could go and sleep at home when they were away from the home terminal,
as they say 8 hrs sleep is better at home than any other place and that
is true, and a lot of times when they the co knew we would go home
instead of taking rest in 1 of those dumps, ya dam right they would get
ordered right after the rest time,its like they got pissed off cuz we
went home and not stay in the rr bunk house dumps, and the other thing,
yes those ymca,s had a 24-7 restaurant and the shit they cooked, well
even your dog would reject the shit they served,, been in some bad
eating places on the road, but they were all better than those rr
ymca,s and that is not saying much, hell when i was in army boot camp,
that food was better than what those rr ymca,s would dream up, i even 1
time got food poison at a rr ymca, if i knew what i know now i would
have filed a major law suite against that rr ymca, but i was just 18
young and dumb, but that is how the rr sort of took care of the t&e
when they had to take rest in 1 of those DUMPS, HELL most of you today
would not even let your dog or cat stay for 8 hrs in one of those
places, But what i said is the truth, i did not make this stuff up as
that is the way the rr operated back then, i ca just imagine what it
was like back in the 1800,s a life of shit,, here is the list of the
most horrible rr ymca,s i have been in, conway,pa. enola pa, pitcarin
pa, crestline ohio, and collin wood ohio. the only thing good about
collionwood is that you could not hear the next guy to you snorting and
farting as the that place was built like a grave crypt, solid block wall
in a 24 & 24 crypt, with no windows, it was indeed a grave crypt, and
you newbees bitch about how you have it today, well lets put you in 1
of those old rr ymca,s today and see how you would like that----NOT....
And hey not really bitching about cuz i lived it, i am just telling it
how the rr did it back then cuz see we had no choice.

Sick of it


Better grow some thick skin. The company has been doing this to
employees for ever. They hit the former conrail employees especially
hard. There are claims still sitting out there waiting to be argued and
paid that are as old as 5 years or more. The mediation boards were cut
back several years ago and the UTU DOES NOT HAVE THE POWER OR THE
STRENGHT to take on the railroad anymore. The ones who try are usually
brow beaten because of the others who are yellow backed or taking a pay
off under the table. It will do you NO GOOD to fight with payroll or
labor relations. The company will give you the same excuse they have
been blowing up our asses for years.... We have new people in the
claims departments and they don't all know the agreements. We are
working with them and trying to get things straightened out. BULLSHIT.
We have heard this excuse so many times over the last 20 years that its
just a slap in all of our faces. They will treat you like you are a
stupid little blue collar worker who is dumb as a box of rocks and
laugh when they hang up the phone. It was once written in the
agreements that they could not go back over 60 days and take back a
claim that was paid. That was tossed out by the utu. The company has
claimed they are more transparent to the employee which is another
outright lie. They now take your money without any explanations and
direct you to go to the employee gateway to find out why they garnished
your wages. It was required that they notified you by mail that they
would be taking your money away from you and the reason for doing so.
Not anymore. When you discover they have taken money from you, it is
your responsibility to do the research and find out why. More back door
crap to slow down the recovery process on your part. All you can do is
educate yourself on the agreement, ride your local chairman's butt to
keep you up to date on ALL SIDELETTERS THE UNION AGREES ON WITHOUT EVEN
BRINGING THE ISSUE BEFORE THE MEMBERS and KEEP....KEEP....KEEP.....every
single time ticket you fill out. Keep every single thing that you file 
whether it is for a DH, meal, held away, class room or training. It is
the only way to prove what you submitted or worked! Employee history
disappears. Your personal time book is not proof in a court of law. You
have to be your own lawyer and do not count on your union to handle any
of your problems. KEEP EVERYTHING! We also suggest you print out a copy
of your employee history every month. Even better if you do it every
week.  Good luck, your going to need it!

INVESTORS


The company is once again starting off 2015 just as expected. In the
last 3 weeks they have managed to lose the location of trains or the
identification of their contents. A crew went to get a train 5 days ago
that was supposed to be a loaded train with 4 engines. The crew
couldn't get a work order for the thing to begin with. The work order
department didn't have a single bit of info on the train. They did
however send a sheet of paper with 4 engine numbers on it. When the
crew arrived at the trains location there were only 3 engines and the
train was empty.  You think this is a rare incident, THINK AGAIN! Now
the question you should be asking yourself is, what are you going to do
and what is your company going to be worth when they lose a key train
with highly sensitive chemical cars that are listed as terrorist
interest materials used for mass destruction. 
Better wake up and start taking a look at the internal departments and
start investing in your personal savings account!
HOW THE HELL DO YOU LOSE THE LOCATION OR THE CONTENTS OF A TRAIN. THIS
ISNT YOUR CAR KEYS OR YOUR WALLET. BIG PROBLEM HERE!

Friend/family
 
What new policy/ Where is it printed? Bulletins or notices? You talking
about proposed changes to engineers agreement or something that came out
for conductors. Have been looking for a written change and  haven't
seen it. Help us out here. You have no personal time in a hotel. You
are under the roof of the company and are held accountable the entire
time you are their by their ethics/conduct standards. They own your
soul when you go to work for them. They cant however hold you hostage
for days at a time without an acceptable reason. Even though some
chiefs seem to think its okay and sometimes play favorites on who they
dead head home. There are ways to get home if it need be.

The new policy for hard workers going into hotels on their personal time
is like taking prisoners. Who thought this was a good idea???  At least
put these guys in the HYATT!!!  There is no price tag on the time lost
at home with loved ones. Alot of good workers will be gone keeping this
in place. Really bad idea! Good luck to you hard workers going through
this if you don't desire to.Happy New Year!!!

Had a good one the other day with a dispatcher on the rb side.....let me
tell you he can stop all movement on his portion of the railroad in a
heartbeat and it lasts for hours.....doesn't answer his radio for  30
-45 min at a time ....we all know he is not that busy either.....any
other dispatcher on the rb side is excellent.....can't believe this
idiot still has a job quite frankly....asked permission by an absolute
stop signal....access denied ....he told me why it was red....and that
it would clear up soon....lol....sat there another hour and guess
what?...still had to get permission by ....ended up screwing  3 trains
now waiting on my train to get in the clear....this guy couldnt
dispatch a train around a Christmas tree.....try to help this guy out
to no avail....he is a self anointed genius ...if I did my job the way
he does his I would be gone in a heartbeat....I actually cringe when I
hear the voice knowing a 6 hour job will now be 12 plus.....an absolute
joke.....no more trying to be proactive with this guy....from now on I
will play the dumb card too.....
