Why iisn't attendance policies part of the contract?   They should and
could be.   There is enough silly shit in there.   Ingram sure had the
bid system shoved down the engineers throats when he was here.   Was
the bid system not  to control  layoff?   Is this not attendance
issues?   Anything can be placed in a contract.   I believe most Union
members want this addressed in contracts.  The ble just happened to
sign their contract right before this notice was released to the men. 
This was no accident it just didn't work out that way.  This was all
carefully planned out.

Interesting, the last two posts.

Many of those types of thoughts are playing right into csx's hands.

Thousands of 1st time union members on the rr now days & most are
pretty smart, but all too many are just plain ignorant. 
Worse, is the ones that should know better.  Sad.

The attendance policy is just that - a policy. NOT an agreed to
contract. Stupid for the organizations to post on web sites their
plans.  Not over yet.

Know all about the LMRDA.  Timely representation?  See contractual
agreements  and the RLA.  Any LC or LR should understand totally their
contracts & labor laws & be able to explain to local members - - WHEN
they'll listen.  

Intelligent people have the ability to listen, learn.

Ineffective\lackadaisical  reps. can be taken to a hearing & removed 
and/or voted out, replaced.

Wish things were more simple per se, but alas, it's just not that
way.

Again, for the umpteenth time:  keep voting pro-business, anti-labor,
anti-union legislators into office - will eventually end up = poor man
\ rich man.  Want to end up being a serf slaving for a king no matter
how important you may think you are?

fortunate & lucky to be outta there

I'm all about paying union dues and being a union member.   We
couldn't work for csx without an union or at least I wouldn't.   That
being said when I pay dues to my union monthly and all my co-workers do
as well.    I expect representation.  I expect the details of a
contract to be defined and understood before it's signed.  I expect
not to be harassed by the company with silly ass attendance policies. 
I expect my valid claims to be handled and payed in a timely manner.  I
expect my LC to keep his mouth shut about me wanting a day off.  When he
is seen getting drunk on social media while he's off union.   I expect
my union brothers and sisters not to be sleeping with the enemy.  I
expect my L/C not to take company positions or safety suck jobs. 

This attendance policy effective 3-1 would never happen if we had a
union not in bed with the company.   Correct me If I'm wrong but has
the utu or ble addressed this on their websites.  No they have not! 
Just like previous attendance changes not a damn thing will change.  Is
it not funny that the ble signed their contract right before this
bullshit.

I hope it doesn't happen if right to work is ever the law of the
land.
There will be a lot of brothers and sisters stop paying union dues
because our union is so passive with all csx's bullshit.

Union members are their own worst enemies. What I and others don't
understand is why they are willing to pay their hard earned money
towards dues and not demand that they get the full representation that
they are PAYING FOR AND ENTITED TO BY FEDERAL LAW. Every member needs
to read the LMRDA! A lot of members have the idea in their heads that
the unions are regulated by the railroad labor act. THEY ARE NOT! 
There are federal laws in place that protect union members in the
United States. They are in place to protect members from "mafia" type
unions organizing and setting up shop. Every member has a right by
federal law to be represented in a timely manner. There are step put in
place to allow any union member to take his case outside of the union
and sue his union as well.  The members need to let their elected
official know they are aware of the laws and take a stance at election
time.

Another big problem is the members fear of retaliation if they file
charges against a supervisor who is blatantly showing disregard for the
union agreement. If you have a supervisor who stands there and tells you
straight to your face that he doesn't care what your agreement says and
you will do what he tells you to do and you can take it up with your
local chairman later, he needs to be reported immediately to your
general chairman. Your fellow employees who witness this need to stand
beside you and show some support. This is a supervisor who needs to be
charged with union busting, deliberate disregard for the employees
right to union agreements and protection.
THERE IS NO PLACE IN THE WORKPLACE FOR A HOSTILE UNION BUSTING
SUPERVISOR AND THE INTERNATIONAL SHOULD BE NOTIFIED AS WELL.

Unions have many faults, to be sure.  Try to negotiate with this co.
without them though & see how you end up. 

Closed shop\mandatory union membership is a must. Without that, this
particular co. for one, could & would really beat the unions, the
employees & their wages/benefits down.  Wake up & see \ smell the real
world. 

Rail unions would be much stronger if members themselves stuck together
more & would be more supportive. 

Read, learn about, the provisions of the Railway Labor Act &
contractual agreements.  Know, be sure of facts.

If a local rep. is off on a weekend, ask why. You very well may find
out that the reason is more than justified. Again, know all the
details\facts before blowing off.  
"I heard" or "I thought" doesn't cut it. 

Easy to bitch, not often easy to correct/fix things.   Help out.
Contribute a lot more than just crying on web sites and/or at the 
on-duty location. Do - at least try to do, more than just post on a web
site.  

Stated\written before: keep voting pro-business legislators into
office(s) - that & weak unions = = look out mr. & ms. middle class blue
collar worker.

csx - mentions a good culture for employees = what a crock, 
nothing but BS embarrassing rhetoric.

Glad    
Glad to be outta there 
& not have to associate\deal with disrespectful, inconsiderate,
selfish co-workers and the same like horsecrap csx management, fra,
etc.

Well mr.FRA inspector at least you got a greeting....allbeit a piss poor
one....seems to be the new way of thinking nowadays....I can tell you it
all starts at the top and as you know shit runs downhill....been on the
property 15 years now ....I have seen the infamous Posey on several
occasions....no greeting,no eye contact,no nothing..he departed and his
replacement ?....you got it ...same actions to a T...now moving on you
can put the manager of safety and operating practices in the pile and
the senior road foreman of engines in the mix as well....it must be the
way they were all taught ...MONKEY see MONKEY do.....it's obvious these
men? Don't want to be bothered with some subordinate who handles
millions of dollars a year for them to be ask what their name
is?......a proud group management must be....walk or drive or sit
around all day doing absolutely nothing beneficial to the company
except usually screwing it up worse than it already is....if that's at
all possible.....

Locomotive Engineer, for 10-20 years:

You are spot on about the nastiness of many CSX managers. On several
occasions, when I met one for the first time, I was greeted with a
gruff "what do you want?" Then when I told them I was with FRA, they
did a 180 and completely changed their tones, sticking their hands out
to shake mine and smiling. Of course when that happened I made sure
there were no stones left unturned in their yards. On some days my job
became very enjoyable.
