IIRC Sandborn's father died of a heart attack while on duty as the new
president of ConRail. I don't think he had a son, so Cindy has to be
the son that becomes the RR president FWIW.

Not much worry for those two. Even if they're "fired" per se - Ward
would probably get some kind of big money severance deal.  Sanborn's
father still on the Board Of Directors?  Wait & see. They'll do OK.

I'm hearing Ward and Sanborn are fighting for their jobs right now. If
the investors want to see good to average results better show these two
the door. Employee morale is at an all time low so when this happens it
effects everything from results, efficiency, safety, and ethics. When
an employee is concerned about their job everyday where do you think
their mind is at? I expect an higher injury rate and more accidents to
occur in this climate. So go ahead and keep these two clown in, go
ahead and cut more jobs and close more terminals, service less
customers because of lack of manpower. If the investors keep these
people in they deserve the poor results they will get

Yeah, that kind of sums it up.  T&E employees are just numbers to the
RRs.   Thanks to the government & the unions - the RSA enacted just a
few years back; it's better than it used to be.

Working for the RR an a Engineer, or Conductor is simply a job for those
that have not a life, and no desire to build one. Sleep run freight and
sleep. That is it and Retire with a nice bunch of folks and a nice
retirement. It might kill you before you get the big payoff at the end.
That is the RR

To Peter Nickles, corporate office:

You shine a seat with your ass from 9 to 5 in an air conditioned
office.  You know nothing about the lifestyle of a working man who
works on call 24/7.  Unions are for the lazy man???  You wouldn't last
very long living this lifestyle.

Your opinion is not valued.

Am with you ape:
Read that post:  the sob doesn't have any writing skills either.
Christ, if people like that are working in corporate offices, no wonder
csx is in turmoil. Dumb, ignorant sob should be assigned to a job
sweeping floors for a living, if able to handle that.

Is this website csx sucks or rail unions suck?




Penalty Claims:
My UTU LC & GC have done quite well, as far as collecting claims for
me.  
Just make sure when 1st submitted, they're valid & if denied (usually
are as I do understand that thousands go to payroll and
have to be researched); I turn them over to the LC, along with proper
info needed; they're forwarded to the GC, & I just sit back & wait for
the $$$.    

Good luck to all.  Soon......adios to csx for me.

You all cry about the Standards and Professionalism. Unions are for the
lazy man these days. There is no 1920's style factor or employee
treatment anymore! CSX employee have some of the best benefits around
and yet you all complain. Makes sense, that all union guys do. 

Suck it up, and stop your crying and relentless search for a handout.

Cold hard facts.... Unions have no back bone and only care about losing
the kick backs they get under the table from the carrier.

The writing was on the wall when they started settling our claims for
50 cents on the dollar with the excuse it was better for the members to
get what they could settle for now than dragging it out for years

BULLSHIT!  The carrier agreed and signed those agreement fully aware of
the language that was written in it.  An 8 hour penalty claim is an 8
hour penalty claim no matter how many times a claim is submitted
because of their blatant violation of it.

If they had any balls like the old unions did they would stand their
ground and make them pay. Hit them in the pocket book where it hurts
them the most.  Instead they are soft and weak and are a total
embarrassment to unions of the past that didn't allow the boss man to
be an indian giver and take back the word they signed!  The days of the
old unions with back bones are gone!

I MYSELF HAVE WATCHED OUR UNION LEADERS CONTINUE TO TURN A BLIND EYE TO
ALL THE PROBLEMS WE SEE TODAY.  

YEARS AGO IF A COMPANY OFFICIAL GAVE ME A HARD TIME, I WENT TO THE
UNION AND REPORTED THE GUY, IT STOPPED REAL FAST.  TODAY WHEN A COMPANY
OFFICIAL GIVES ME A HARD TIME, I REPORT HIM TO THE UNION AND THE REPLY I
GET IS....."THEY CAN DO THAT." "DO WHAT THE COMPANY WANTS."  THE
UNION DOESN'T REPRESENT AND FIGHT FOR YOU ANYMORE.  THEY ARE TOO BUSY
SPENDING YOUR MONEY AT CONVENTIONS GETTING DRUNK!

I ONCE SAW AN ARTICLE A FEW YEARS BACK FROM THE UNION STATING HOW WE
HAVE TO PRESERVE THE AGREEMENTS THAT WE HAVE.  SINCE THEN AGREEMENTS
HAVE CONTINUED TO BE GIVEN AWAY FOR NO REASON.  THEY SELLOUT THE
AGREEMENTS DURING CONTRACT TALKS TO KEEP THOSE BIG PAYING UNION JOBS. 
IN OTHER WORDS, SCREW THE MEMBERSHIP, ITS ALL ABOUT ME ME ME.

WE ALSO DON'T NEED TWO UNIONS!  WE NEED ONE UNION THAT ISN'T SO TOP
HEAVY.

Until now, never thought I would write to a forum like this. A friend
told me about it.

All is interesting.  Got over 8 yrs. in on the RR now after losing
decent prior jobs account different reasons I had no control of.

Was happy to get my 1st union job. My Dad said a union is only as
strong as it's membership.   Lots of constant complaining about the RR
& the union. Nothing ever seems to be appreciated.

Been around long enough to hear and see that a lot of workers are big
loudmouths -- talk the talk but don't walk the walk.  Is the same with
the RR.  Old heads with lots of time have told me that's the way its
always been.

Not a wonderful world by any means but at least I have a job, vacation,
plds, insurance, a retirement plan.  I have to keep at it.


Csx does suck.  Many things could be and should be better.

Union, friend / family, for yrs.,

RLA: Long, drawn out National Contract Negotiations, Section 6 Notices
(wish lists), penalty time claims, Arbitration, Mediation, etc.

LMRDA: UTU's Constitution contains instructions: - Charges & Trials of
Officers.  Should a member choose, he/she could hire a Labor Attorney
and/or deal with the US DOL if they feel they've been misrepresented.
Elect to become a dues objector.  Good luck with all/any of that.

90% of the time it's the RR I get upset with. No doubt, it'd be a
real nightmare working for a non-union csx.    Back to csx sucks.

sick of hearing the blind defense of the unions and allowing them to
continue to misrepresent us. all these stone-cold union diehards need
to stop toeing the party line and admit there needs to be reforms
and/or new leadership. don't bash anyone for saying so I for one
don't enjoy paying for lobbying groups and who knows what else! We
need a strong union and lately all I am hearing is how everyone is
unhappy/fed up

Speaking of union officers:

There cannot be a worse group than on the UP side in Colton, CA. The
General Chairman and his Local officer are the highest paid within the
entire union. The GC makes more that the International President and at
least $100,000.00 more than next highest paid GC with comparable
membership.
Here's the kicker; the GC was also collecting reserve board pay
inspite of the bylaws restrictions for full-time General Committee
officers.
The west coast terminal is a proving ground for the rail carrier's
agenda for undermining agreements...because the trail of payouts are
endless!

Was told that's were I would find the bill of rights for union
members. was also told the union was supposed to tell us about them
when we were hired and they never did!  After reading everything I can
see why they kept quiet about them!

NO you got it wrong!  The RLA has absolutely nothing to do with federal
laws and regulations set down by the government for the establishment
and running of any union that represents any working group including
railroad workers. The RLA allows railroad workers the guaranteed right
to establish representation. The LMRDA clearly details how a union can
form, regulate and conduct its business within its organization and
with its members.  The RLA has NO AUTHORITY over a unions formation or
internal regulations.


If your union is corrupt or failing to represent the members to the
fullest extent possible the members have recourse and have every right
to seek outside assistance for relief. The day the union took your
first dime was the day they agreed to represent you. Failure to follow
through with those promises is a breach of agreement.

The UnionsShouldWorkForYou & union democracy posters only got it
half-assed. = =  Must be co. moles/trolls or want-to-be.

Railroaders: References to the LMRDA should also include references to
the RLA, which was enacted long prior.

Unions perfect? Heck no.  Full time big-shots do just fine income &
benefit wise.  But they can be replaced, voted out.

RR companies are not employee friendly.  Are any companies really very
caring\friendly to workers?

Any member who rags on their union organization ought to do a term or
two as a local rep. - - that alone is a real ear & eye opening
education.
 

RRs would like nothing better than to have even weaker unions -
so everyone, please think hard & long about trying to become dues
objectors.
