Courtesy and Professional CSX Style

You'll do what yer told, you little &%#$@!!!

    CSX likes to picture itself as a company where all of it's employees, customers, and contractors are treated with the highest levels of courtesy, professionalism, and respect. The employees, customers, and contractors know differently....

This web site is so sad. All you MFers are a bunch of cry baby's. Be
glad you have a job that pays well in today's time and if you don't
like what you do then fucking quit. Don't get on some petty website
and cry to one another about what you don't have and be thankful for
what you do. I would almost bet money the biggest part of the people
that post on the site are van drivers.

Attention pain: good article dated 04/08! You're speaking of"railroad
vibration exposure injuries" from excessive cumulative trauma. This is
a legitimate claim if the time of notification does not exceed the
statue of limitations of three years. These injuries contributes to all
kinds of assorted illnesses including sleeping disorders and taking a
lifetime of pain medications.

FELA attorneys are fighting each other in order to represent injured
rail workers affected by these conditions!

Google "railroad vibration exposure injuries" and you will get
several hits of pass cases settled with the results. Some are 7 figure
claims.

CREWS!!!!!

What the hell is wrong with you!  You just don't see the big picture 
here! The greatlake division has been sabotaged to make the crews the
best money they have ever had. It also keeps all the new hires marked
up and the newbies coming in with a guaranteed place to go on the
boards. It also keeps the money coming in from all those engines they
leased out to someone else!

Sure, its a bitch sitting our for hours in line waiting to get into a
plugged yard because there is no power to get the freight out and make
a hole. Sure, its a bitch to sit in the hotel for 24-48 hours waiting
for a train and then finally getting dead headed home. 
Everyone is screaming to the top of their lungs about how bad
management is and how bad they run things. What???? You just figuring
this out? Come on people. The crews have been holding their hand and
enabling them for years. Everytime you pick up the phone and make all
the call to get your stupid work order the YM or TM cant get, your
doing their jobs. Everytime you call a customer and make arrangements
with them when things are screwed up, YOU ENABLE THEM! QUIT DOING THEIR
STINKING JOBS FOR THEM AND MAYBE,JUST MAYBE THEY MIGHT LEARN HOW TO
BECOME COMPETENT OF THEIR DUTIES AND THINGS WILL RUN BETTER. I DONT
CARE IF CRY BABY DOESNT WANT TO SIT AROUND AND WAIT, OR I NEED TO GET
TO HOTEL AND BACK BECAUSE I GOT A PARTY TO ATTEND. YOU ARE CREATING
THIS MESS OVER AND OVER AGAIN! You knew what you were getting into when
you signed on with the outfit!
In the meantime, Im going to get worked to death and make several
thousand a pay period, but I will do it while Im eating my pizza and
potato chips and watching spectacular sunrises and sunsets and
sing..........CHA-CHING.....CHA-CHING......CHA-CHING when I go on
overtime or they beg me to drag another train in for them for another
time ticket!

They are driving this place into the ground.  They've cut jobs in all
departments & combined them thinking that if they leave things that
way, everything will just work itself out...ITS NOT WORKING!  Lets not
forget the diesel shops they have closed, now nothing is getting fixed.
Trains everywhere are 2 to 3 days out of date, and they are throwing
time slips at employees in desperation.  It doesn't help matters
though, trains are parked everywhere from Chicago to Boston.

I also love that $28.00 PPS that never goes up.  Hasn't done anything
since the stock split.  I wonder why not? 

You can't tell that to old Al Crown though, he shines a seat with his
ass from 9 to 5 in a cubicle down yonder.  

Remember people...ITS NOT IN THE BUDGET!

The GL division is in such bad shape.  They have the trans.
superintendent working 3rds. They are pulling dispatchers to help out
the DTOs and chiefs.  They are bringing in a trainmaster, a locomotive
guy from jax, a network op from jax. Just to help out.

The great lakes division is so screwed up there is no words for it.  

I honestly believe it's worse than split date.

I wouldn't be surprised to see see some firings in the near future.

No planning.
Not enough chiefs (ACDs) to watch and help.
Not enough crews
Dispatchers are overwhelmed with taxis, where to park trains, not
knowing if we have crews, not knowing if we have recrews, not knowi

...hell with it

I used to love my job, now I freaking hate it.  The stress has gotten
to me.  

This is to the new hires coming in a few weeks.  I really feel sorry
for you.

Who do you think is paying for all the upgrades your currently seeing on
CSX? THE GOVERNMENT!  Conrail was formed by the government, and paid
back every dime after only a few years of existence, Al Crown
STUPIDVISOR.  They weren't taken over because they were in bad shape,
takeovers happen for just the opposite reason.  CSX is still paying on
there portion after 15 years, so do your homework.

Before CSX took over there half of Conrail, CSX was a coal railroad. I
remember afterwards when CSX managers came out of a meeting concerned,
saying that they had never ran this much freight before....lol.

You never saw slow orders on Conrail as well.  They fixed them as fast
as they appeared. I've seen slow orders on this railroad that have
been there for years.

Still a cheap outfit today.  When they gonna replace all these old worn
out engines?  I love the fuel saving concept as well, one engine rated
for 4400 tons to pull an 8000 ton train quite often. They say "just do
the best ya can." Thats how more fuel is burned..lol.  You also wonder
why all the engines are blowing up or in the shop?

Sorry conductor 20 - 30 , before we took over Conrail, the Conrail guys

are complaining about now. Nothing changes.

CSX will tell you it is a "Transportaion" company and not a

Just remember that.

CSX and the Great Lakes Division just doesn't like the fact that the
ex-Cons knew and still know how to railroad & move freight.  This
hillbilly outfit doesn't...LMAO!

Its now taking them 3 to 4 crews to get a train across the rails of 100
miles.  The ex-Cons had no problem with crews & management working
together, EVERYONE made money!  No cameras, no officials hiding in the
weeds, no NAZI dicktaster at the top driving everything into the ground
either.  No harassment & intimidation, none needed.  The ex-Cons had
guaranteed on time delivery.  You tell me who ran a better railroad? 
By the way, trainmasters wouldn't be quitting CSX if the place wasn't
such a train wreck of an operation.  Ask Warren Buffett his opinion of
CSX, he spends money.  Not like this cheap ass outfit.

Cleaning out the Great Lakes Ex Cons and lil groups of special
interestscan be purged better.   Failure to protect previously
employees fired ahead of you and your current fellow employes will
result in moving down the line to YOU!  Rats !

Just like Nazi Gay Stop O tactics implemented by Ingram & Brown

Do you really think the G&W is better than CSX with Brownshirt running
that outfit?

Keep posting on here and get on the GL Termination List.

T&E

Im hearing that the Great Lakes Division is the only Division that has
made an agreement with the Union that any employee who gets charged
with a decertification offense will be terminated and will not get
their jobs back. This was supposedly the idea of Division Manager. Has
anyone else heard about this and if so is it going on at other
Divisions?

If its true I want to know how and why one division on CSX can
discriminate against it employees and enforce such a rule that isn't
being upheld for ALL CSX EMPLOYEES. Last I heard, the ethics policy and
operating rules were for ALL Employees of CSX!

Well CSX does it again!  The GL Division has lost yet another
trainmaster to the Genesee & Wyoming Railroad...Hahahahahaaa. 
Congratulations Connors, keep driving them all away.  EVEN MANAGEMENT
KNOWS THIS PLACE IS A BAD WORK ENVIRONMENT. Keep driving the train into
the ditch, eventually the freight won't move at all.

ATTENTION!!!!!

LISTEN UP!PAY ATTENTION!  If you are a road engineer or conductor and
have been experiencing tingling, numbness, or pain in your back, elbows
and especially the feet and hands, SEE YOUR DOCTORS NOW!  There is a
good chance you have developed the symptoms from PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY!
This is caused by constant pressure put on your nerves from being seated
to long with legs and arms bent especially pressure from arm rest. The
constant movements from lateral motions of the engines as well and
vibrations are a major cause of nerve damage. Even the slightest
movement can cause nerve damage over time.  DO NOT WAIT AROUND UNTIL
YOU HAVE NO FEELING IN YOUR HANDS OR FEET. SEE YOUR DOCTOR IMMEDIATELY
WHEN YOU START TO FEEL TINGLING AND NUMBNESS IN YOUR FEET OR HANDS.  It
can be treated if the damaged nerves can be detected. Get these symptoms
documented with your doctors as soon as possible. Occupational injury to
nerves may cause you disability later on in life.  DO NOT WAIT AROUND.
SEE YOUR DOCTORS!

I was on engine 522 or 521 last week.  It had a camera directly over the
engineer and conductor's work area.  If I were a female, I'd be filing
a suit over the location of the cameras.  The way CSX positioned them,
if a women that wasn't flat chested wore something as simple as a polo
shirt, CSX management could look right down her top.  Knowing all of the
pervert managers out here, you know not only would they be looking,
they'd be taking pictures and sharing it with their friends.  Before
long, that poor female's breast would be all over the internet, and
CSX issued cell phones
