Csx officials are eligible for more than 100 percent, I've been told
its due to the fact that we as engineers get awarded stock based on
availability.and they don't. They also have the option to buy an
extra
week vacation now.

They also make more than you do and qualify for two retirement
programs. But then all you do is move 3 hours out of a 12 hour shift. I
know that moving is the goal, but in reality Engineer's sit more than
they move. Their skill is waning as we speak.

The post was not from Adam. Wrong assumption. Not sure he would
appreciate his name being posted on this site. Sure you meant no harm.
Now a little education for you and other posters.

As for your comment to sick, posting on this site that the CMC managers
are being put on notice is the perfect thing to do. If you have not read
any post on this site before, the FRA as well as an appointed team for
the lawyers of CSX reads this site every day. It is a blatant violation
for a crew caller to call someone in the manner that "SICK" has
pointed out when the crew managers are well aware that this topic is
covered in the SSA and is written in black and white. There is NO GRAY
AREA! The excuse they are using now is that the IVR is violating the
rule. It is set up to automatically run the rosters and anyone in AO
status will get automatically called in the window between 2201 and
0000. NO EXCUSE!!
They are responsible for the programing of the IVR system. They have
been using this as an excuse since they were down sized and jobs were
replaced by the machine. 
If you having issues with anyone in CSX and need to point out the
problems do not hesitate to post your notice to them on this site. 
It is a fact that TM, RF and other supervisors visit this site on a
regular basis and have been heard very frequently discussing the topics
posted on here. Therefore they can not say they are not aware of
situations that are taking place and therefore they are turning a blind
eye. Yes, they do nothing about what they read but that puts them at
fault according to the ethics policy.

You should have received a copy of the code of ethics in the mail. Read
page 38 covering social media. Read the first line of the last
paragraph!

IF YOU SEE SOMETHING POSTED THAT COULD BE POTENTIALLY HARMFUL TO CSX,
REPORT IT IMMEDIATELY! The csx group who is assigned to monitor this
site regularly is NOT EXEMPT from this policy! Actions such as those
that are occurring within the CMC could easily be seen as an attempt to
create hostility.

SickOf CM,

   I'll bet those CMC callers and Managers are afraid to call anyone
now since you "Put them on Notice". Damnit man. I wish you wouldn't
have done that, they are all trembling in their shoes now and will be
afraid to call anyone for work.  

   Seriously dude, do you really think a crew caller or CMC Manager
gives two big shits about being turned in to the Ethics Hotline for
running the roster. You apparently have a very high opinion of yourself
to think that your gonna make a difference. Who do you think reviews the
cases called into the Ethics Hotline? It damned sure isn't a neutral
party that makes decisions that are Labor friendly.

ALL ENGINEERS

Official notice came in today. The Engineers bonus will be figured at
100% and will be payable on February 22nd. There have been rumors
floating around that some in upper management have been claiming they
were getting a 125% bonus. These are just rumors and nothing has been
clarified. However it does not matter. The contractual bonus agreement
states that the bargaining unit will not request an audit or review of
the corporate books to determine if your percentage is being figured
fairly.

CREW MANAGERS!!!!



ARTICLE 40(NEW LANGUAGE) OF THE SSA FOR ENGINEERS STATES VERY
CLEARLY......

IN NO EVENT WILL AND ENGINEER BE REQUIRED TO ACCEPT AN ASSIGNMENT THAT
GOES ON DUTY AFTER 2000 HOURS ON THE DAY PRIOR TO HIS SCHEDULED TIME
OFF. 

ITS ABOUT TIME YOU STOPPED ORDERING YOUR CREW CALLERS TO CALL ANY
ENGINEER AFTER 2000 AND DISRUPT OUR QUALITY TIME AT HOME THAT MICHAEL
WARD CLAIMS HE IS SO CONCERNED THAT WE HAVE. 
WE ARE ALL SICK OF HEARING THE SAME LAME EXCUSE THAT YOU HAVED NEW
PEOPLE IN THE OFFICE WHO DONT KNOW THE AGREEMENT.
YOU HAVE USED THIS OUTRIGHT LIE FOR SO LONG ITS NOT EVEN LAUGHABLE
ANYMORE.
THEREFORE YOU ARE BEING PUT ON NOTICE. WE ARE GOING TO FILE ETHICS
CHARGES AGAINST YOU FOR SUPPORTING A HOSTILE WORK ENVIORNMENT. THEN WE
WILL FILE A PETITION TO HAVE YOU REMOVED FROM YOUR POSITION BECAUSE YOU
ARE OBVIOUSLY NOT QUALIFIED TO HANDLE THE JOB. THE ABILITY TO SUPERVISE
YOUR CREW CALLERS AND THE INABILITY TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE PROPERLY
TRAINED SPEAKS FOR ITSELF WHEN OUR PHONE RING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE
NIGHT BECAUSE YOU HAVE ORDERED THEM TO GET A WARM BODY AT NO COST. DO
NOT DENY THIS. SEVERAL CREW CALLERS HAVE TOLD US THIS. THEY ARE NOT AS
LOYAL AS YOU THINK. 
YOUR TOTAL DISREGARD FOR OUR UNION AGREEMENT AND OUR PRIVATE TIME AT
HOME MAKES YOU A HOSTILE SUPERVISOR. YOU ONLY HAVE YOURSELVES TO BLAME.
BE PREPARED!

a strong union could stop HH in his tracks. CSX rendered the union weak
and powerless. Isn't it ironic the strong union that could save Mikey
and his crew were destroyed by Mikey and his crew. 

We're all about to be in a world of hurt.

This is no different from the CP with Hunter Harrison & Bill Ackman
wanting to take over the NS.  They want to come in and liquidate
EVERYTHING.  Chop everything up, sell it all off to make there money,
then claim a consolidated railroad.  By this time there is nothing left
as they retire and walk away with millions in there pockets, and
thousands of railroaders out of work.   Modern day Corporate Greed. 
Watch what you wish for, these guys are hatchet men.

I'm hoping Hunter Harrison comes in and kicks out Mikey and Cindy on
the curb.  Maybe Mr. Harrison will promote people to management
positions based on  their ability rather than the current regime that
promotes people based on their skin color or other minority status. CSX
loves the positive publicity of hiring minorities and promoting them to
positions that they fail miserably in.  Take a look at Queens Gate and
Chicago for example.  These folks couldn't manage a Lemonade stand in
Siberia much less run a Railroad.

Hunter Harrison signed on with the UP for over $100 Million plus.
He resigned from the CP and forfeited a buyout of over $88 Million.
Union Pacific has a overall management problem with a lot of dim
headlights at the operational levels of management.

With all the insurmountable legal bills that's coming to fruition,
someone has to focus on efficient (not harassment operation) operation
of trains.
 
Fritz and Scott has been compromised by the SP union bosses. And both
will be out the door in a matter of days!

Good Riddance

As someone who has 20+ years with CPRS, my thoughts and prayers are with
you guys at CSXT tonight.  I had a very good job in CPRS' U.S.
Headquarters office in Minneapolis in Revenue Accounting for eight
years until late 2015 when my job was unceremoniously abolished as part
of all the slashing and burning that rotten bastard EHH did when he came
in after the proxy fight waged by Pershing Square in mid-2012.  To make
a long story short, I was eventually forced to apply for Railroad
Disability but when I see how the moral at CPRS has gone to being
practically non-existent under EHH's reign of terror, I can't say
that I miss it that much.  It's just incredibly sad what this guy has
done to CPRS and how he's not only wrecked the company and ruined the
lives of several good people there, but has also alienated several good
rail customers who will likely never use rail for their shipping needs
again.  I dread to think what that rotten SOB will do to CSXT and its
intermodal franchise out east.  God be with you guys.

Are you kidding us???   The woman ran into the side of a train engine
and you want some advice? Really?  Is she related to pines or are you?
And your saying she couldn't see it. Broad day light or night neither
matters. Engines usually have running lights, step lights, number
lights and headlights on. Your trying to distract posters. Go back to
the csx office and tell them to lay down and take a nap!

ALL CREWS

Did any of you read the latest rag mag from the greatlakes division we
just got in the mail.  Try reading the article under "Avon keeps pace
with business". Anyone know who this fletcher guy is that said the
train crews pick up the engines in the receiving yard???

Does he not know that we usually get them at the servicing fuel pad and
if not there somewhere where they have parked them after another crew
brings them in bypassing the fuel pad so they wont be held for
inspection or cleaning?
Yeah, sometimes the crews get them in the receiving yard because they
hand them right off to another crew when they are running behind
schedule and again don't want them held up for inspection. 

Not sure this guy knows whats going on with the power or he's just to
afraid to tell it like it really is!

Can any of you railroaders explain this?I know a guy that was told by
csx that he was hired for a track worker position.For some reason csx
kept giving him the run around made him take a drug test and physical 2
or 3 times but never told him he failed anything.For whatever reason he
was never hired by csx after being told he had the job and was never
given an explanation as to why he wasn't hired.Anybody know why csx
did this?

POSTERS

Did you remember the webmaster at Christmas. Did you show your
gratitude for having a place to come and post your problems and inform
the public of the true conditions of working for CSX? If not, now would
be a good time to open your hearts and send him a thankyou. Im sure
anything you send him would be greatly appreciated. You can visit
amazon.com and check through his wish list(Atom Smasher). Show some
support for the man who gives you a place to vent and brainstorm the
best ways to handle the intimidation, harassment and the day to day
insane business tactics that we all deal with!

GOOD LUCK TO ALL OF YOU!  Maybe this year will be a better year and we
will finally get paid the claims that are due us. Especially the ones
we have been waiting for more than 4 years!

Notice

Looks like Avon is taking another hit. They are supposed to be doing
away with 3rd shift in the engine repair shop. Guess they plan on
dragging the broke down junk to another terminal to be fixed. Its just
going to get worse. The writing was on the wall when they started
running the inbound engines around the engine house so they wouldn't
be held up for cleaning and inspections. Cant count how many by pass
the house to be parked somewhere else in the yard for another road crew
to take without ever being seen by the engine/fuel pad. Pretty soon they
wont even be cleaned. Just pulled out on the mainline to be fueled and
not cleaned or taken care of until the crews shop them for being filthy
dirty and the toilets stinking to high hell.  Wonder how long before
they close us down all together!
