WARNING...WARNING.....WARNING....WARNING...WARNING....


THIS WARNING IS NOT A JOKE. LET US REPEAT THIS AGAIN. THIS WARNING IS
NOT A JOKE!

ORDERS FROM ABOVE HAVE BEEN HANDED DOWN ON THE GREAT LAKES DIVISION TO
FIRE MORE ENGINEERS. ALL CONDUCTORS GOING TO ENGINEER SCHOOL WILL BE
MULTI TERRITORY TRAINED AND QUALIFIED. IF YOU ARE AN ENGINEER WHO IS
NOT QUALIFIED ON MULTIPLE TERRITORIES BECAUSE YOUR SENIORITY ALLOWS YOU
TO HOLD ONE TERRITORY YOU DO NOT FIT INTO THE FUTURE PLANS OF THE
COMPANY. YOU WILL BE TARGETED FOR TERMINATION SO YOU CAN BE REPLACED
WITH A NEW ENGINEER WHO CAN BE USED AS MULTI PURPOSE AND REDUCE THE USE
OF EXTRA BOARD ENGINEERS IN TURN REDUCING THE ENGINEERS EXTRA BOARD. iN
THE FUTURE EVERY ENGINEER WILL BE EXPECTED TO ACCEPT EVERY CALL THEY
RECIEVE AND NO ONE WILL BE ABLE TO SAY THEY ARE NOT QUALIFIED ON THE
TERRITORY.

AGAIN, THIS IS NOT A JOKE. WATCH EVERYTHING YOU DO. CYA CYA CYA CYA
CYA. IF YOU FEEL YOU ARE BEING TARGETED, CONTACT YOUR LOCAL CHAIRMAN
IMMEDIATELY. DO NOT WAIT UNTIL YOU ARE PULLED OUT OF SERVICE. TAKE YOUR
TIME AND MAKE SURE YOU DO EVERYTHING BY THE BOOK. WARN YOUR FELLOW
EMPLOYEES. MAKE EVERYONE AWARE OF THIS ORDER!

IGNORE HIM PEOPLE.... YOU ARE MAKING MANAGEMENT SQUIRM. THEY KNOW THE
POST ABOUT THE NEW AGREEMENT IS RIGHT ON HEAD AND THERE ARE RADIO

THIS AGREEMENT IS A JOKE AND HAS LOOP HOLES THAT WILL ALLOW THE CARRIER
TO STICK IT UP FARTHER THAN THEY ALREADY DO. IF THE BLET PUSHES THIS
THROUGH WITHOUT BLACK AND WHITE PROTECTION CLAUSES WRITTEN UP THEN ITS
TIME TO FIND ANOTHER UNION



AS FOR THE POST ON GETTING PERSONAL DAYS.... LC WAS RIGHT... THERE ARE
THOSE WHO GET THEM ANYTIME THEY WANT AND THOSE WHO DONT.  THE SUCKS WHO
BUY PIZZAS AND SEND THEM TO DISPATCH AND THOSE WHO TAKE EVERY SINGLE
CALL FROM THE CREW CALLERS WILL ALWAYS BE TREATED BETTER. AGAIN

JOKE!!!!

BLET NEW SYSTEM AGREEMENT NEGOTIATIONS ARE IN ACTION!


AMMENDMENT OF ARTICLE 40 STATES

On the day preceding their scheduled rest cycle, an engineer at the
home terminal that is not called by 1200 for 1400(1500 for runs subject
to 3 hour call) may contact CREW MANAGEMENT indicating their desire to
be removed from the calling cycle in advance of their rest cycle. In
the event the company is unable to fulfill its manpower requirements,
the engineer may be used in other classes of service for which he is
qualified that will go off duty at the home terminal. 
IN THE EVENT AN ENGINEER HAS PREVIOUSLY SCHEDULED COMMITMENTS
SURROUNDING THEIR ASSIGNED DAYS OFF AND REQUIRE RELIEF FROM THIS
PROVISIONS, THAT ENGINEER WILL BE REQUIRED TO ARRANGE SUCH THROUGH
THEIR LOCAL SUPERVISOR OR CMC


Do we even have to think twice about what was just posted in bold
letter.
First, if you can get through to a crew manager without being sent to
his voice mail your lucky
Second, if you try and reason with a supervisor who's only goal in
life is to make the white collars in Jacksonville happy you will only
get laughed out of the room. Try and tell a supervisor that your life
is more important than his local job being filled or his train leaving
on time. He will remind you that it isn't
Third, there are those who can get a PB day anytime they want and those
who couldn't if their lives depended on it. Favoritism is alive and
well and ALWAYS WILL BE
fourth, a crew callers job is to fill jobs at all cost. Leaving bogus
messages, blocking the IVR system, threatening someone with a miss call
is part of their job. They will not allow your personal business or
personal commitments to interfere with their job of filling jobs. You
will have to beg, cry and give all your personal info to them and
maybe, just maybe get lucky enough to get your blessing from them. WHEN
do you make these arrangements? Before you call and beg for this pardon?
After you call at noon? How long will you be on hold waiting to talk to
someone to get this cleared. What happens when your on hold for 45
minutes and they call your other line and tell you that its your call
and they need you. Too bad if you were on hold first. You answered your
other line like an idiot and now your busted and going to work!
How about the provision that states an engineer arriving at his AFHT on
his off day will be deadheaded home on combo service. 
DO NOT FORGET HOW BAD THEY HAVE SCREWED UP AND STILL SCREW UP THE FRA
MANDATORY RULES ON SENDING ENGINEERS HOME ON THEIR 6TH START. THAT RULE
HAD BEEN IN PLACE LONG ENOUGH FOR THEM TO GET IT RIGHT AND ITS STILL IS
A MESS. THERE SHOULD BE A SERIOUS PENALTY CLAIM FOR NOT SENDING AN
EMPLOYEE HOME PER THE AGREEMENT AND IT SHOULD GO STRAIGHT TO THE
GENERAL CHAIRMAN AND ABOVE. NO WAITING A YEAR TO GET IT PAID!
THERE ARE TOO MANY FLAWS IN THIS ENTIRE PROPOSAL AND WAY TOO MANY GRAY
AREAS. DO NOT VOTE YES ON THIS UNTIL THERE ARE DEFINATE IN WRITING
ANSWERS TO ALL GRAY AREAS. HOW MUCH INFO IS REQUIRED TO SATISFY THE CMC
OR SUPERVISOR THAT YOUR LIFE IS JUST AS IMPORTANT. WILL MANPOWER
SHORTAGES BE TAKEN CARE OF AND EXTRA BOARDS FILLED TO COVER ALL THE
CHANGES IN THIS PROPOSAL. WHAT IS THEIR PLAN TO STOP THE MASSIVE
TURNOVER RATE THAT CAUSE ALL THE MANPOWER SHORTAGES IN THE FIRST PLACE.

READ IT CAREFULLY. EVERY SINGLE WORD. DO NOT LISTEN TO GOSSIP AND
RUMORS. THIS IS YOUR LIFE AND YOUR WORKING CONDITIONS AT STAKE HERE. DO
NOT BE STUPID. READ IT!

HEY CORPORATE!!!

Want to know why people are pissed and moral is down???? Try looking at
the extra board for the conductors at AVON!  How come there are 14 guys
on the board and only one gets a Saturday off! How come they have 3
guys off on Monday, 3 on Tuesday and 3 on Thursday. Instead of giving
anyone a Saturday or Sunday they have everyone working their asses off
when most of the rest of the world and their families are home on the
weekends. How come they have so many people off on those day. Don't
they realize that make the board short as hell on mon, tues, and
Thursday because of this? They are so hell bent on no one getting a
weekend day off they would shoot their nose off to spite their faces! 
What the hell!!!!!


HEY UTU! See a problem here!

So Called Friend/SUPERVISOR

GO AWAY...Just as predicted... here you come again with your crap when
a topic is posted that obviously is making someone in payroll
itch.....Nice try


Keep deleting the box checked that you want electronic pay stubs only.
Several of us have been deleting it everyday since it showed up 3 days
ago. Some have received emails today that there had been a change made
to their payroll choices. Funny that one pay roll rep said to wait
until AFTER THE 10TH  to go in and delete the check mark because it
wouldn't work until then. If that were the case then why  would anyone
already receive an email confirming there was a change. I wouldn't
believe that email. Keep an eye on the election box in your pay until
after November the 11th. Take snap shots of each time you delete the
check mark. There are going to be a lot of people out there that are
going to get screwed because they didn't go back in and keep and eye
on this box!

Wait until you see the NEW attendance policy for transportation. This
New policy was  created by people that have nights and weekends off.
They probably only "WORK" 4-6 hours a day.. This company gets
everything that they deserve.

I did the same thing. Called pay roll because the box showed back up
checked again. They said we are supposed to go in an uncheck it after
the 10th. That doesn't sound right if they are starting the whole
process on the 10th. Like everything else they do someone is going to
have a problem!

READ ALL ABOUT IT
 
THE POST FROM PAY WAS CORRECT. I JUST CHECKED MY PAY ON THE GATEWAY AND
THEY HAD A CHECK MARK IN THE BOX THAT REQUESTED I RECEIVE MY PAY STUBS
ON LINE AND DISCONTINUE RECEIVING THEM BY MAIL. I HAVE DIRECT DEPOSIT
AND NEVER HAD THAT BOX CHECKED BECAUSE I WANT PAPER STATEMENTS FOR
DOUBLE PROOF OF MY PAY AND THAT THEY GENERATED IT. IT DOESNT SURPRISE
ME THEY WENT IN AND CHECKED THAT BOX. THEY DONT WANT TO SEND PAPER
STATEMENTS OUT. TO CHECK THAT BOX JUST A FEW DAYS BEFORE THE DEAD LINE
IS NOTHING BUT AN UNDERHANDED...... 
THERE ARE GOING TO BE ALOT OF PISSED OFF PEOPLE IF THEY DONT GO BACK IN
AND CATCH IT BEFORE FRIDAY AT CLOSE OF BUSINESS DAY. BET YOUR BOTTOM
DOLLAR YOU CANT FIX IT OVER THE WEEKEND!

PAY NOTICE


The message that was posted on the employee gateway advising everyone
that the company was going with electronic pay stubs on line November
10th is totally wrong!

It states in black and white that if you wish to CONTINUE TO RECEIVE
your paper stubs by mail you need to go in and UNCHECK the box that
states you would like to receive your pay stub ON LINE ONLY and you
understand you will no longer receive your pay stubs by mail.

If you already have that box checked then you should not be receiving
your paper pay stubs in the mail anyway.  Correct? 

If you are receiving your pay stubs by mail go into the gateway(my pay)
and keep an eye on this box. IT SHOULD NOT BE CHECKED! Watch it closely
until after November 10th. We suggest you print out directions posted
on the pay site just in case there is a major mess up and you stop
receiving your paper pay stubs in the mail. There is a good chance this
box may show up checked at the last minute without your knowledge and
your pay stubs by mail will be discontinued.

FRIEND/FAMILY

I don't think your hitting a nerve and I think all you are doing is
looking for a topic that is no better than all the junk we see in the
media every time we turn on our televisions. Tabloid junk, reality joke
shows and things that really have nothing to do with the shape that our
economy or our job industry is in today. Dirty laundry should be saved
for those type of shows or websites. Yes, everyone has the right to
post what ever topic they want on this site, but this kind of trash has
been the major down fall to this site. Years ago this site had some
impact. It did and I know for a fact make a difference in decisions
that were made by management.  Posters would come on here with real
issues that were detrimental to our work environment and our union
agreements and get managements attention. Everyone knows that the
company lawyers as well as the FRA, customers and other class 1
railroads visit this site. What is posted on here can make a
difference. That is why every time a serious topic shows up on here
that makes the company squirm, you get the moles and management
crawling out from under their rocks and doing what ever it takes to
draw attention away from the issue. The LBT issue wasted so much space
and time that serious posters just faded away because they knew the
trash would overwhelm everything and they were just wasting their time!
It did no good either. She still is working and still does what she
always has. So if kidding or anyone else is tired of the junk on here
and doesn't need to see or read it anymore, they have just as much a
right to voice their opinion about it as you have the right to harp on
it. Its to bad this topic hasn't had once ounce of influence on
management in regards to cleaning up the serious issues that workers in
the field and their families deal with 24 hours a day. Trying to get
anything accomplished on here is basically impossible these days. I
hope you can find some peace in the future and forgive your husband for
betraying you and god for bid, if you find that you just cant stop
posting about this topic, please,please, please find some help! The
last thing any of us need on here is another Pines! One obsessed nut
job is enough!
