Are you just plain retarded or just so bored that you have nothing
better to do than try an stir up some more jerry springer crap that
takes away from the real issues that are important. You have got to be
stupid as h...ll if you think for one moment that any wife would
believe any gossip that is posted on here about her husband. All she
would have to do is read all the trash that is posted about supervisors
on here and it wouldn't take one second for one of them to be convinced
by their husbands that everything written on here is out of spite or
hate for management. So quit trying to keep stupid topics like these
going on here and if you don't have anything seriously productive to
post that will really help the intimidated, harassed, whipped, brow
beat, stressed, and overworked employee in the field then don't waste
space on here!  Quit trying to keep this stupid game going! Whats wrong
with you and others who just want to keep digging at this "who screwed
who and who's with who" when there are workers out there that don't
even remember what day of the week it is or when they saw their
children more than 48 hour!

OH....news flash!  Mickey Ward doesn't give a rats butt who is
sleeping with who and if he did know he wouldn't care because it
doesn't have a thing to do with stock prices or how the board of
directors vote!

When CSX managers receive their annual performance appraisals, it seems
likely that employee tests and failures would be a major evaluating
factor. The same goes for on-time train departures and operating with
as few employees as possible. And it seems very unlikely that employee
morale has anything at all to do with the process. It also seems to me
that safety programs on the class one railroads have morphed into
nothing short of harassment programs. And FRA is a cheerleader for all
of this. Constant employee testing and failures make it look as if both
the railroads and FRA are really serious about safety. But the fact is
that railroads are really only serious about their stock prices and
Wall Street standings. And of course the FRA is only serious about
being a bureaucratic government agency that tries to please everyone,
especially the railroads it is supposed to be regulating. And with all
of the serious railroad accidents that have recently been occurring,
FRA's house needs to be cleaned from top to bottom. And it needs to
start focusing on how the harassment of employees and unethical call
practices are having a negative effect on safety.

BEST TO DRAW ATTENTION AWAY FROM THE REAL PROBLEMS.... WAS IT LAW? THEY

RETIRED. GOT SOMEONE IN MANAGEMENTS SHORTS IN A BIND?????

GOOD!  NOW LETS TALK ABOUT HOW SOME CREW CALLERS ARE STILL CALLING
PEOPLES HOMES AND LEAVING VAGUE BOGUS MESSAGES ABOUT JOBS THEY ARE
CALLING AND HOW THE IVR SYSTEM IS STILL SET UP TO ENTRAP PEOPLE BY NOT
LETTING THEM ACCESS TRUE AND ACCURATE INFO ABOUT THEIR OWN STANDINGS
AND POOL LINE UPS AFTER THE CALLERS HAVE STARTED RUNNING THE ROSTERS.
SURE IS FUNNY HOW YOU CANT GET ANY INFO WITHOUT BEING TRANSFERED TO A
CREW CALLER FOR IT. FUNNY HOW IT ONLY HAPPENS WHEN THEY ARE RUNNING
ROSTERS AND NEED SOMEONE TO DESPERATELY MAKE THAT MISTAKE AND TALK TO
ONE OF THEM TO THEY CAN ORDER THEM ON THE JOB. SO FUNNY HOW THE IVR
SYSTEM MAGICALLY CORRECTS ITSELF AFTER THEY HAVE THE VACANT JOB FILLED.
  CAN WE ALL SAY UNETHICAL TATICS AND AGREEMENT

IVR SYSTEM. AGREEMENT DOESNT SAY INFO MUST BE AVAILABLE EXCEPT WHEN

Being a CSX manager is one of the biggest jokes that I have seen in
years. You people think you are Gods. You're a fish on a big hook.  A
puppet, clown. CSX ONLY PICKS UP MANAGERS THAT NO  OTHER COMPANY WANTS.
Just take a look and see..   So keep strutting you piss ants... Jokes on

As sad as it sounds, you are right there is a lot of cheating that goes
on and all divisions on the railroad.when a spouse cheats on another
spouse and tries to hide things and is sneaky that truly is the
character of that person.so if you're married to someone that's done
that, they probably won't change, it is whom they are.My husband
cheated on me also with a coworker , & I have let it go, but I have not
forgotten and never will.And when he's away from me I'm sure he is
flirting and being his old self, but if I ever catch h,im cheating on
me I will take him for everything he has and in this country is 50
50.These people are stupid because the statistics show that affairs
never work out once they get together.My husband did say that the
railroaders especially management once they get to their meetings the
first thing they do is hit on women buy them drinks ,dinner or go to
the strip clubs.He said it's been going on for years they all do it,
and he was one of them Also you women and men out there don't be so
naive and think your spouse is a good good spouse when their at these
meetings, because they are not.

A LOT of cheating goes on at all the divisions! Almost everyone I have
met has had an affair that works for CSX! My husband included! So the
response to the question earlier about affairs and flirting....it goes
on all the time. My husband cheated on me for years before I found out.
It was the worst day of my life... It will be his if I ever find him
doing it again!!! Recently I have heard that he has been flirting with
some crew caller so I guess the liars still lie and the cheaters still
cheat! Don't ever trust your husband or wife if they claim they have
to work late....hire a private investigator or track every move they
make. Do whatever it takes to catch them.

In the state of Illinois a csx train CAN NOT block a crossing for more
than 10 minutes unless they are in the process of switching an industry
or they have had train trouble such as an engine breaking down or air
hose trouble. That is covered under the law created by the USDOT. If
the train is just sitting there because they are backed up and just
cant move or cant be handled by the dispatchers, it is your local
authorities responsibility to hand out tickets. It wont change anything
because a ticket is just pocket change in the ceo's pocket, but it
would add extra revenue to the local police force. Apparently they
don't need the money or they would be enforcing the law. The same goes
for officers turning their heads to gate runners who BREAK THE LAW every
single day. They don't think it is a big deal so motorist don't
either. It makes me sick how many police officers cry and whine about
how they don't have enough to run their departments but they wont take
full advantage of writing tickets for incidents that put other peoples
lives in danger. They would rather write a ticket for someone not using
their turn signal or speeding out on the interstate than things that
really cause others serious harm.  Maybe before you move you should
rally all your neighbors to get together and start pushing your local
authorities to make a stance. Getting the local news stations involved
wouldn't hurt either!

To Pissed at CSX:

Don't get me wrong with what I'm going to say, because I hate
railroad management, and the management of most other corporations in
this country. I believe that most of them are total assholes. Now,
being blocked by trains is nothing new. It's been going on since the
horse and buggy days. But railroad traffic has increased in recent
years and very few new tracks have been built to handle that increase.
Especially in Chicago. Chicago is now and has always been the largest
and busiest rail center in the U.S. Also, many dilapidated tracks were
removed in the 1980's when rail transportation declined. Another
problem is that railroads are trying to railroad with as few employees
as possible, which increases the bottom line, makes stockholders happy
and gives nice annual bonuses to managers. And now, the railroads want
to operate freight trains with only one person to reduce operating
costs even further. All of that being said, as long as there are
crossings, there will be blocked crossings. And train crews cannot do
anything about that. Trains heading for a terminal must often stop on
the main line waiting for a clear track to yard in. Other things such
as mechanical breakdowns can also cause a train to stop on the main
line. Then, other following trains must stop and wait for the problem
to be corrected before they can continue. And sometimes freight trains
must stop to give preferential movement to Amtrak trains. Although
there are things that railroad managers could do to sometimes prevent
blocked crossings, those railroad managers aren't always the brightest
crayons in the box. And I will guarantee you one thing, they are far
more concerned about the agenda of their corporation than they are
about inconveniencing the motoring public. Now, as far as the horns
being sounded at crossings, that is mandated by Federal law, unless the
crossing meets certain criteria. Even then, if it looks to the train
crew like someone might cross in front of them, they will blow the horn
anyway. And they will rightfully blow that horn as loudly as possible.
If they don't, and someone gets hit by their train, they would always
wonder if a life could have been saved by blowing the horn as loudly as
possible. I couldn't say that when I worked at FRA, but I sure can now.

I am a long-time resident of Evergreen Park, Illinois, and older,
well-established suburb on the southwest side of Chicago. 

Sadly, the CSX railroad tracks run diagonally through our nice little
town--meaning that you'll be blocked their poorly-maintained trains
not once, not twice, but a whopping three times. 

Evergreen Park, IL is in very close proximity to dozens of southwest
side suburbs. In essence, you could say the suburbs in this area are
wall-to-wall (to coin an old, cliche). More importantly, Evergreen
Park, IL is home to a major hospital, Little Company of Mary Hospital.


And our neighbor to the west, Oak Lawn, is home to another--even
larger--hospital, Advocate Christ Medical Center. Both hospitals take
all the emergency calls from the Chicago Police and Fire Departments
within about a five to seven mile radius. Additionally, Advocate Christ
Medical Center is a trauma center for all the gunshot victims on the
south and southwest sides of Chicago (if you've ever toured these
neighborhoods, you'll instantly see that it is rife with the lifestyle
that creates dozens-and-dozens of gunshot victims).

Well, back to the original storyline: CSX Railroad. 

Without exception, our quaint little town, Evergreen Park, IL, is held
hostage on a daily basis due the the utter incompetency of this
pathetically outdated railroad company. 

For whatever reason, CSX Railroad has decided that the train tracks
that run diagonally through Evergreen Park should be its personal
parking lot. 

Conservatively speaking, I'd say that CSX railroad blocks traffic in
Evergreen Park, IL approximately 30 times monthly. Remember, folks: I
stated CONSERVATIVELY.

And when this poor excuse for a railroad decides to block traffic, the
blockage oftentimes lasts for ONE HOUR OR LONGER. 

Not only does this create mayhem and chaos in the center of town, it
blocks emergency vehicles from 14-15 suburbs from reaching their
intended destinations: Little Company of Mary Hospital; and Advocate
Christ Medical Center.

As I sit stalled in traffic due to the utter incompetence of CSX
railroad, staring at a Chicago Fire Department ambulance doing the
same, I can only wonder how many people have died inside ambulances due
to being held captive by the boobs who operate CSX.

Complaints to the Evergreen Police Department, to the Evergreen Park
Trustees, and the Mayor seem to fall upon deaf ears. Yeah...they
promise to resolve the problem, but rarely--if ever--fail to address
the root cause--a 1920s style railroad trying to operate in the 21st
century.

To give the citizen of Evergreen Park some "sense" of action, the
village posts nonsense verbiage on the Village Hall electronic
billboard, asking frustrated citizens to call CSX Railroad...as if that
is going to do any good.

For myself, at least, I'm moving the h____l out of Evergreen Park, and
CSX railroad is the final nail in the coffin that perpetuated my move.
But for the elderly citizens of Evergreen Park--of which there are
many--they will be forced to suffer the ignominy of having to deal with
captivity, loud air horns, and the outright ignorance of the CSX
Railroad management.

Use your head

Had an engineer who was boarded in the middle of the night out at an
industry by a tm who thought he was god. The engineer asked to see his
ID and he caused a scene. Told the engineer that he knew that he had
seen him before and the engineer told him he wasn't sure and wanted to
see his ID. Tried to write him up on other bogus crap because his ego
was bruised and he didn't think he had to be questioned. Sorry, but
these people think they are above the rules and safety procedures. If
they order you to move closer, you better. If you don't you will be
the target from hell and charged with insubordination.

as for a real problem on these test, its the yardmasters who are
starting to become real smart arsses. If you come into the yard less
than 5 miles an hour they are getting on the radio and wanting to know
if you have a problem with your train. One real dumb ars actually asked
the crew what the speed was in the yard. They told him if he didn't
know then he needed to stop all movement and get someone up there to
take over that knew the rules. HA HA HA HA! It was great. However a tm
jumped his butt and told him he was going to slow on purpose. The
engineer told him when he could come on the radio and tell him that his
track was clear and there were no banners in it then he would pick up
his speed but in the meantime when he was coming into a track with a 80
degree blind curve with 2 cars range of vison to see he would go as slow
as he wanted to be able to stop in 1/2 the range of vision. Tm still had
an attitude!

We are ALL SICK OF THESE SUPERVISORS and their asinine attitudes about
us following the rules that their supervisors wrote and expect us to
follow 100%!  If they don't like it, why don't they strike and put a
stop to it. In the meantime let us follow the rules and keep their
mouths shut!

To the post below, you asked is there cheating that goes on at the
Louisville division. In every terminal there are cheating men and
women. Men and women are constantly flirting with each other,and after
a short while they are going out for drinks,dinner,and then to bed.
These cheaters will lie to their spouse by saying I have to work late
(which is a lie).  As soon as a female gets hired on,if she is decent
looking you can bet an affair will start.

FRA question:

A railroad and the local union circumvents the federal rest rules and
forces the engineer to take twenty hours and one minute of undisturbed
after working four consecutive days.
The general chairman promulgates the "written" agreement. By
assisting the carrier and forcing engineers to work more without any
consecutive days off. The agreement saved the carriers $$thousands in
monthly earnings for at least thirty engineers.

What was not disclosed is that the carrier compensates the union
officers for monitoring the boards for abuse and allows the union
officer to remove their members from service for three days.

It all boils down to an unwritten "PAID" agreement to the union
officers!

The carrier does not make the legally required LM-30 disclosure of
reporting the compensation to the corrupt union officers!

Is this a violation of the RICO Act?
