If I were a CSX customer I would be jumping ship if I could. Right now
the boards are cut to a bare minimum and trains are being delayed or in
some cases annulled. Customers are being told we have no engines for
your train when at times that is the case. But the truth is there's no
men on the board..and this is the case most times..right now it's pick
and choose which customer is more important. I think it's funny that
we are a transportation company and CSX has the mentality of we don't
care if we move the trains or not. CSX is a total joke..what does it
matter if you have engines and no men to put on them? CSX cares nothing
for their customers or their employees..If you are on the Huntington
Division hell it takes damn near 10 years of service or mote just to
hold a job..we just business away here

UTU/BLE

WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON AND WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU. HAVE YOU
TOTALLY JUST LOST YOUR MINDS OR HAS YOUR FAT PADDED POCKET THAT ARE
LINED WITH OUR HARD EARNED MONEY JUST TURNED YOU INTO A BUNCH OF
CARRIER SUCK UP LEACHES.

HOW LONG ARE YOU GOING TO LET CSX RAPE THE HELL OUT OF OUR AGREEMENTS.

ROAD CREWS FORCED TO WORK 10-15 MILES OUT OF THEIR ADVERTISED LIMITS
AND TOLD THEY DONT GET A TICKET OR A DIME EXTRA. INSIDE THEIR SO CALLED
TERMINAL LIMITS. HOW LONG BEFORE THEY EXTEND THEIR LIMITS ANOTHER 20
MILES AND START MAKING US WORK BOTH DIRECTIONS ON LINE OF ROAD. ITS
ALREADY STARTING AND YOUR JUST SITING ON YOUR ARSSES AND LETTING IT
HAPPEN. HOW ABOUT TURNING CREWS WHEN THEY GET TO THE AWAY FROM HOME
TERMINAL AND NOT PAYING THEM A DIME FOR THE TRIP BACK. WHAT THE HELL IS
UP WITH THAT CRAP. WE ARE ON THE CLOCK ARENT WE. WE ARENT IN OUR OWN
VEHICLES ARE WE. WE ARENT ON OUR OWN PRIVATE TIME. WHAT THE HELL MAKES
THEM THINK WE SHOULDNT BE PAID TO SIT FOR 3-4 HOURS IN A WAGON FOR THE
COMPANY AND NOT BE COMPENSATED FOR OUR TRIP AND TIME.
THRU ROAD FREIGHT CREWS ARE BEING FORCED TO STOP IN LINE OF ROAD AND
SWITCH OUT THEIR TRAINS TO REBLOCK THEM BECAUSE THE TMS FIND OUT THE
TRAIN WASNT BUILT TO THEIR LIKING OUT OF THE OTHER TERMINAL. AVON HAS A
HUMP. WHAT THE HELL IS A HUMP FOR. SORTING CARS! THRU ROAD FREIGHT CREWS
SPEND 25 FRICKIN HOURS IN A HOTEL AND GET SCREWED ON THE WAY HOME
BECAUSE THE TM WANTS THE TRAINS BLOCKED TO BREAK UP WHEN THEY GET IN
THE RECEVING YARD. FLAT SWITCHING AND BLOCKING YOUR TRAINS IN LINE OF
ROAD IS A BUNCH OF SHIT. POOR PLANNING ON THE TERMINALS  PART DOESNT
CONSTITUTE AN EMERGENCY ON OURS.  USE YOUR DAMN HUMP. THATS WHAT ITS
FOR. USE YOUR YARD CREWS. THATS WHAT THEY ARE FOR. 
UTU/BLE.... YOU WONT BE LINING YOUR POCKETS WHEN WE SAY ENOUGH IS
ENOUGH AND WE STOP PAYING THEM. WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO WHEN SEVERAL
HUNDRED MEMBERS TELL YOU TO STICK IT.
MAKE THEM REACH IN THEIR POCKETS AND GET THE YARD SWITCHERS BACK. TOSS
THOSE GREEN BOXES AND GET SOME REAL CREWS WORKING THE YARDS. GET THE
ROUST ABOUT CREWS BACK. WORKING ROAD CREWS 12 DAMN HOURS EVERY TRIP IS
BECOMING THE NORM WITH THE EXTRA SWITCHING WORK BEING FORCED ON THEM.
PAY THE CREWS FOR THEIR TIME IN THE WAGONS.  BEEN A LONG TIME COMING
UTU/BLE. BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE THE MEMBERS RALLIED. DONT THINK IT CANT
HAPPEN AGAIN?

I worked for CSX in all capacities and over the years I have seen good
and bad. The other railroads are similar all have learning curves.
Where employees get in trouble they take advantage of the system and
eventually get caught. Its a huge loss when you loose a job the pays 4
to 5 thousand dollars a month. There are very few jobs in the US that
pay this kind of money and the retirement is good when you draw 4
thousand a month and you wife gets another 2 thousand. Its not a get
rich deal but compared to Social Security 800 a month and work until
you 70. Take good care of what you have ignore the jerks as there have
been plenty of these people that have come and gone. The employees will
let a manager know how good of a job they do by their ability to handle
people.
The days of the drugs and alcohol on duty are gone there is no place
for it in the type of business we perform, especially when you have
someone with a wife and kids that may not see them again because of a
mistake or unnecessary action someone made. Its bad when you see
someone coupled up, kids with arms and legs cut off, head on
collisions, people walking in the middle of the track committing
suicide. You will see it all in your lifetime. Its best to stick
together and work for the changes to make things better while getting
what you want.

Furloughs are part of the job. It's nothing new. When I hired out in
1977 I worked 3 weeks then was furloughed for 2 months got called back
worked 7 weeks then furloughed for 4 months. This went on for 3 1/2
years and would of continued up to another 7 years if I hadn't took a
transfer to another location. If CSX didn't tell you about furloughs
don't feel bad the C&O (now CSX) didn't say anything about it
either.
lol. Welcome to railroading.

This is the other side of RRJ's comments, by other side that means
different RR different time. I will keep this short and sweet. Hired
Jan 1963 as a Fireman--paid off in 1964-rehired as a Brakeman- 1964. I
was cutoff 1 month in 1968-- was the oldest cutoff and worked at will.
Resigned in 1970. I spent many hours working with those that had been
cutoff for 15 to 17 years, and others that hired at the right time and
had never been cutoff. Just the way it has worked for years.

Posted: 22 July 2015

first off im not a csx suckhole I think 99% of managers are idiots.some
people here thinks im bitching, but im not, I really don't care about
the pools. see I have my 11 personal days , my daily vacations days and
I also mark off sick when the days I want and are taken. see I put my
time in here to have these days to use to mark off. what do people
expect? this is the railroad ,people knew what they were singing up
for. a new hire thinks I don't want to work weekends, i don't want to
work nights and I want to mark off when I want, as many times I want.
where dose it ends? csx needs to move trains that's what we get paid
to do , not " well I had 2 good trips I can mark off fmla for 3
days." and this happens every week probably every where. all I can say
is i can see csx side of this. when a hot stack train is sitting on the
main for hours on a Saturday afternoon during the summer cause they
don't have a crew for hours. I be pissed too. the pools moving dosnt
affect me at all so I don't really care. you know who should care, are
the new hires who are going to get furlough cause of a few bad apples.

Anyone ever deal with the guys in the PTC Lab in Jacksonville?  There 
is a certified nutjob running the PTC Lab on the 4th Floor. Goes by the
name of John McVeagh. Rumor has it he was about to get fired for being a
big dick in his last assignment, but some AVP saved him at the 11th hour
and dropped him into the PTC Lab so he could make the entire PTC team
miserable.  Trust me, everyone that works with that asshole during the
day goes home at night and drinks heavily. Employees and contractors
come out of the lab ready to rip out their own eyeballs after dealing
with him.

"losing road pool" and your post:
Nothing further from the truth regarding swap of pools, while there are
those who perhaps abuse FMLA, the balance of those who have FMLA have
been forced into using it BECAUSE of the Carriers attendance policies
(plural because they change week to week flavor of the day). Even those
within the Carrier have suggested to those who run afoul of the policies
that they get FMLA for legitimate reasons. There is culpability on both
sides. I'll also say that there is issues with FMLA at EVERY terminal
not just one terminal. Been that way before FMLA, it'll be that way
until the end of the railroad or other workplace no matter what
location you're in.  
As to the pools, again it's the flavor of the day. Been told "double
ended pools are a thing of the past" by Carrier officials and "this
will make it easier to regulate" (read eliminate DH) which is a
fallacy because when you have so many entities that can call trains and
none are accountable, you get what you get.
So your post is way of base as to the moves boiling down to "certain
individuals" , and as the old saying goes:
"if you haven't heard a good rumour by 10am start one"  but at least
start one that has a shred of truth to it.

Believe it has to be at least 50 workers & longer than a 6 month
lay-off.  Look up\research the WARN Act.

So, the company just furloughed 30-some people without pay or prior
notice  in Cumberland, MD. I would like to know how legal that is.
Shouldn't employees be protected under the Worker Adjustment and
Training Notifician (WARN act)?

I think that this at least violates the ethics stated in the CSX ethics
page. "Mutual respect." I think mutual respect would be to give men
and women with families and bills to pay a prior notice to these sorts
of things. If you plan on furloughing someone without pay, you should
at least give them a notice so they can arrange to be able to feed
their kids. This is cruel and unusual. Also, if you can pick up the
phone and call your employees at all hours of the night to go to work
and to notify them of being bumped.... You can definitely pick up the
phone and call them to tell them they don't have a job for an
indefinite amount of time. 

Am I right or am I right?

Alert to all

If you work at Avon be careful who you talk to about posting on this
site. A particular train master who's name has been used on here very
frequently was heard telling others that he was given a list of names
of people who have made post about him. The guy who is sucking up to
the train master claims he knows who is using each cover name on their
post. Not sure how he would know but there is a major snitch at Avon
yard. If anyone can figure out who he is let everyone know and post his
name for others. There is no doubt this train master will stalk and set
up anyone who's name was on the list. What a piece of crap! Have to be
a real low life to run to a tm and rat on fellow workers! Watch your
backs!

God Help US, this company is in trouble. I have never seen such a
mis-managed company. I could not have dreamed up such a calamity. To
all us railroaders I really hope that someone will come along and save
this company before its to late.

As for the unions, its already to late. Look at who's in the local
offices, look at who is in the national office. They never were worth a
dirty red cent. Lazy Lazy Lazy!

The co. abolishing jobs, pools, for whatever reason(s), is nothing new. 

40 yrs. of dealing with that type of crap: co-worker vs. co-worker,
employee vs. employer, terminal vs. terminal, division vs.
division......CSX does Suck.  Hell, the truth is, railroading sucks.
