Courtesy and Professional CSX Style

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

Investors 
Since your never in the field it's time for your udate for the
quarter.

Not much has changed. As you know Stocks are up and down.
Trains are still outlawing and leaving terminals late.
Power is still short and repairs are behind because of staff cuts.
Wrong car/wrong train going strong.
Work orders printed backwards alive and well.
Improper recertification procedures are still in effect.
Issuing system bulletins and cancelling them in less than 24 hrs. Still
guaranteeing job security for reissues. Failure to proofread alive and
well.
New tm's coming on strong. Intimidation and bullying going just as
planned.
violation of the union agreements still going strong and making an
impact on moral and union busting.
Derailment across the system as expected with shoddy repairs and
cutting corners.
Fuel conservancy program is still inadequate. Underpowered trains for
tonage is doubling use. Travel times are increasing. Trip optimizer
program is not being utilized correctly.

Will keep you up to date. As of now things continue to run smoothly.
Same as the last quarter.

Your absolutely right. Those camera claims will not get paid and if
they do they will only pay .25 on the dollar and wont remove them. But
they wont pay a dime. It is not against the law to have cameras on the
company equipment to protect them. It is no different than having them
in store or out front on the street. Crews are not watched when they
are in the bathroom and they do not need to dress or undress in front
of them. Thousands of dollars are spent each year fixing the vandalism
on the engines. this includes the graffiti and the damage done to
equipment inside. They have every right to use the cameras to protect
their property. Making sure your off your phones is a federal order.
This is how they chose to do it.  IT WONT GET PAID!

Only the men that move trains are expected to work on major holidays. 
The worse T&E logs in more hours on call than those dickheads work.
Protecting the phone and laying at the hotel is a full time fucking
job.  Only segment of workers that abuse weekends are our union reps.

Foote said there was not a problem with worker availability, but rather

a segment of employees who consistently take weekends and holidays off.
"We have plenty of employees, but we can't have 25 percent of our
workforce take holidays off," said Foote, noting that holidays are
peak seasons for railroads. "We can't run a railroad with part-time
employees."

The board of directors must be so happy how foot cut so many staff to
get the operating ratio down. And the money he is saving on crews
letting all those loads sit in some yard and siding. What railroad
needs to generate revenue anyways. Not CSX they just sell assets that
they wonít need for six month or so. Foote the lawyer sure knows how to
spin it

About time/ape 

Try using a different name next time. Makes it look like your the same
poster as previous which you are NOT!  I would say its a waste of time
to put in complaint. Your union's won't win this one. They agree you
have too many slackers.  That's why your out of service agreements no
longer pay for charges of unavailability. They even know that you have
been pushing the envelope for too long. If your union's really cared
about you they would put up the money, time and good fight to get you
better off days. One day off definately is a joke especially when you
work into it and go home tired and have half a day to do personal
business. They know this but don't care. Just goes to show you have no
one in your corner. So get used to the changes.

I hear you loud and clear.  Our union is a joke.  We have a Dr. union
steward where I'm at and he's one short loud mouth sale out.  Both
unions have men laid off union business all the fucking time. I'm not
sure how that bullshit is justified.   Today  the utu has 4 off and the
ble has 2.  The Dr. is laid off daily vacation surprisingly but he never
has to use paid days because he's always off union and has a job with
Sat and Sunday off. 
About all I've gotten out of the ble this year for 110bucks/ month was
email saying to put in camera claims. LMFAO.  As if that shit will get
paid.

About Ike if you feel the company is violating the collective agreement,
did you submit a grievance. That is the only way you can try and get
change, and hold the company accountable. If you do nothing thatís what
you will get in return.

Non of this would have happened if you all didn't play games and do
everything in your power to get out of working. You may want a more
lucrative spot but most don't. they jump around and find spots that
leave them at home or give them the next day off just to sharp shoot
and get on something else that just came open after they made their
last move. No one is losing any seniority rights. You just have to wait
a few days before you get it unless a more senior man jumps in and takes
it from you. Its a pain in the butt repositioning people on different
jobs every day just because the lazy want to bounce around and not come
to work. Put in your bid for that open spot. If you want it talk to your
buddies and ask them not to put in for it. If you really want that job
and not just the next day off or wait while your turn is out of town
not to work then you'll get it and be happy. HAPPY  HUNTING!

So we throw money at a union every month to protect us and hold CSX to
their word, well I havenít seen it yet CSX does whatever they want
while these head union clowns lay on their backs. Look at this new
seniority move policy in the north, you canít make immediate moves when
able to hold a new job? Iím a fan of bids system, but thatís not our
agreement and no one is holding them to it. Itís costing money because
I canít move to a more lucrative job if it opens. And if I need a
certain day off that becomes available I canít get it. But hey one day
off a week that you sleep most of is enough time off in their eyes.
Weíre all just educated retards any way right. Pretty soon weíll be
making minimum wage with no benefits and no rest days or hos

T&E

If any supervisors "throws away" anything they feel is not approved
in your crew room and you paid for it, not only should you file ethics
charges but you should be reimbursed by the company for the cost. If
you did not keep receipts then you can find the value of the item or
one of similar make and model to submit claim. This behavior is
unacceptable and can not be tolerated.

They did same to us threw out our am fm radio threw out our coffee maker
we had in our lunch room. That was payed for by the guys. We had a
sitting area out side for breaks if you did not want to go to lunchroom
they threw table and chairs in garbage. They just want to take all the
creature comfort away. Just goes to show you how childish they are.
Once the workers are all layed off. The management crew will be
fighting for there jobs. Then you will see some back stabbing.

Just took another 10 engines out west to be handed off that were sold.
This time it looks like they are headed down south to Georgia. Mangers
at the engine houses say they are getting in 40 new SD70s and don't
know where the hell they are going to put them or keep anything up and
running since they cut so many jobs off. Not sure what the hell is
going on. Replacing older units with new SD70's? HMMM..

I was the target of a bunch of Generation X CEO,s who know  nothing of
how to operate a business.  They are more concerned with stuffing their
pockets rather than work with the workers who do their job. After I turn
60 they treated me like was something from hell. I am not surprised.
They did everything to me to force me into a corner and stab me in the
back and out the door. The generation X brats (under 55) running the
company have no respect for anybody but themselves. This explains why
CSX is such turmoil, When the previous generation ran it was slightly
better place to be. The was not as bad to work with at least they
respected for their work ethics. If had been three years older I would
made my out at 65.  I feel bad for the younger guys who have wives,
children, homes and Pick-Up trucks they are going to hurt if they get
booted out. The hand writing is on the wall for most employees stand by
for the big ram unless your the bosses boy looks they are going out.
this looks like the picture for the poor working fool.  The Gen X Me
kids whine and cry like a bunch of 5 year olds when something happens
complete with runny noses. The upper management need to grow up and be
responsible adults like there grand parents. Remember CSX will go down
the same track as Penn Central if do not know this read your history,
Penn Central went tits up

Trainmasters are going to be cut next. Study is showing that the
Yardmasters are doing a great job moving crews and trains. Company will
save millions on this move. Trainmasters are proven to be useless. This
will take place by 2020 or soon after.

Only work the hours you are required to by your contract not a minute
more. Let the phone ring off the hook looking for there important
loads. Let HQ tell the customers it will get there some day. But for
now we have to cut staff to get operating ratio down. Ceo and the board
of directors should be in the nut house for shock treatment.

Csx you want to buy back my vacation and personal days, I get sick for 3
days and have a Dr. Note and still get points, caps on personal days,
and you wonder why people go out and get FMLA..Maybe if you gave
employees an incintive for not marking off like maybe starting with
negative points , banking negative points to use for emergencies...
thanks to the unions for always looking out for us everytime the
company makes changes why do we have a contract if you allow so many
side letters  and bulletins to change shit.
