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 guy "Randall Knutson" is selling the membership right up the
river!  His words expressed sound like words right out of the carriers
mouths.  Again, the UTU tries to sell it out and claim it was a good
deal in the end.  Have you noticed that since letting them bring in
remote control, most remote jobs have since gone from 2 man to 1 man
jobs?  Good deal ???  Say what you want about the BLET.  If this gets
passed, sure the BLET won't have much of a fight, but which union is
willing to just hand it all over?  If I were a conductor and concerned
about my job, my monthly dues would never see the hands of the UTU.

If you think the UTU sold out everyone on the BNSF why don't you do a
little checking and read he BLE / BNSF on property agreement 2007
article 2.  It appears to me that the BLE was very quick to throw their
hand up and say screw the conductor we will take the train by ourselves
and best I can remember there wasn't one word of that posted on here
or any other railroad forum.

Fellow CSX Family,

I worked for CSX over 30 years and my last position was in the
Jacksonville Human Resources Department.  My union position was to help
the SPG and Maintenance of Way employees with personnel records and
anything necessary to make their positions in the field easier.  Right
now I am in a fierce battle in the United States Supreme Court and
Florida Court of Appeals against CSX.  I am asking for your financial
support to help me to represent, not only myself, but many on this
site.  So much injustice has been swept under the rug and payoffs taken
until it needs to be exposed and REAL change MUST happen!   Please visit

PLEASE SUPPORT ME  AND PASS THIS INFORMATATION ALONG.   Thank you . . .
GOD BLESS . . .

The UTU is selling out the conductors, its own people with this proposed
contract.  This is the union that people trust and give there money?

A few years ago they sold out everyone on the health care.

Before that they sold out both engineers & conductors with remote
control that came back to bite them in the ass.

Useless Transportations Union doesn't sound very SMART too me!

Guess conductor 30 didn't hear about the conductor who got pelted with
a brake shoe that flew off a passing train he was inspecting from the
ground and it injured him.... Guess that's ok. Once in his 40 years
isn't a big deal. Well, one serious injury is ok. No one knows for a
fact how many items have flown off and were near misses.   Time for the
troops to start reporting ALL items that are flying, dragging, or
whipping around in the wind as they stand there and watch the train go
by. don't be afraid to piss the crew off because you told them they
have something on one of their cars that may cause serious injury if it
comes lose and hits the next guy watching their train go by.

Conductors who don't want to get off their ass to inspect a passing
train are driving 1 more nail into the conductor craft. Add a little
value to your job (you can do it safely, in 40 years I have never
heard
of anyone getting hurt doing this) The road conductor might stay
around
a few extra years that way. PS get up and stretch, walk around a
little
and stay awake.

Hell recently opened the gates for a railroad CEO who bribed every union
officer he could in order to throw away claims and feed the bottom line.
It just so happened...one brave soul told the feds...who then alerted
the CEO.

Various unrelenting methods of retaliation ensued until the Karma Gods
unleashed 23 months of agonizing hell until he finally succumbed!

The moral of this story: The laws of nature will prevail...so be
patient! 

The gift of life is courage and perseverance...so pass it on!

As Americans, we deserve better...!

Time to show a little appreciation to the man behind the curtain. The
man who allows you to have a place to come and vent about the company
that sooooo often breaks our agreements and their own rules. Go to his
wish list at amazon or hit the pay pal...... Have done my part every

You bet your bottom dollar! Set up a consultation with a lawyer. Get a
statement from your old union rep that states you never filed to get
your job back. It may cost you some money but your lawyer can demand
the so called info they have on you that you say doesn't exist then
Michael Ward should be notified of the companies behavior and their
vicious attempt to have you black balled from working at other
railroads. You should also let all other class 1 railroads know of
csx's behavior in this matter so they are prepared if other leave csx
and try to obtain employement with csx. DONT LET THEM GET AWAY WITH
THIS BEHAVIOR! A complaint should be filed with the EEOC as well. They
cost you possible employment with another railroad and what they did is
illegal.

You are much better off avoiding both CSX and CN. I would try a short
line. Less money, but a lot better working conditions.

I worked for CSX for 18 months. I quit on Feb 7 2013. I received my
letter in March 2014 that says I have forfeited my seniority and any
future rights as a CSX employee. I was employed in the Nashville
Division. I have since been trying to get on with CN Railroad out of
Memphis. I finally got the job offer from CN. I took the physical, did
the background check and had a date for conductor school. The last
thing they did was contact CSX. CSX told them that I was suspended for
CSX and I had a case in arbitration trying to get my job back. CN
talked with CSX 3 times and got the same answer from them. CN retracted
their job offer because of "honesty issues" they said it looks like I
lied and had not quit CSX. I have since contacted my old union rep and
he looked at my history, he said it shows me no longer working there
and there is no mention of arbitration. The way I see it is CSX just
cost me a 100k a year job and there is nothing I can do about it. Is
there anyone out there that has any advise for me? Do I need to talk to
a lawyer? Thanks for any help. Shane Robertson

Everyone!


Can someone help me out here. I have ready every single page of the new
operating book and went through the safeway and timetable and I can not
find the rule that says we have to get down and inspect passing trains.
Nothing at all!  Is it in the division notices? I don't see it anywhere
in the division bulletins.  Where is it at??? 
If it isn't in writing and its just and old rule then they cant expect
us new guys to think it is an active rule. They weren't kidding when we
where told on the property that there is a lot of old rules that have
been deleted still floating around out there and not to believe
anything that isn't in writing. How does anyone expect new hires to
know whats really going on if they don't put their rules in writing!

Conductor 30

There is  no way in hell you or any conductor can say they follow all
the rules. Especially inspecting trains. There was a rule that said you
WILL GET OFF AND INSPECT AS MUCH AS YOUR TRAIN AS YOU CAN WHILE STOPPED
IN A SIDING WAITING. How many conductors did you seen do that. In all
my years I didn't see a one but the rule was there. All of them say
they didnt do it because the dispatcher would have a cow if he had to
wait on every conductor to make his way back to the head end of a large
train. Second, he is not supposed to be on the hot side of the rail, so
he wouldn't be able to inspect a passing train anyway if he got down
and started inspecting his train. So see, the only rules followed are
the rules that are convenient to the company and their time. The
company always says we are empowered to make the safest decisions. HA
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA
