This site is just another of the endless examples of a place for the
spoiled, crybaby railroad employees to post their petty and sickening
grievances. I have been out here for over twenty years, and I love my
job. I appreciate my pay and benefits, and the opportunity to make a
great living, and to provide for my family. Since when did anyone say
that railroading is a glamorous, easy job, with wonderful hours? YOU
crybabies knew when you agreed to be hired that it will be a forever on
call job, no excuses to mark off. I am one of those people who
appreciate my employer, and am glad that they have a good business
model, and that we are making money. With the success of our company,
the sacrifice is that many, many employees MUST dedicate their lives to
keep it afloat. I have been able to find time for my work, and time for
my family. Sick and tired of the folks who demand, demand, demand! The
reward is stable employment, and great benefits and pay! I love CSX,
and those who choose to whine about their jobs, hit the road, please.
How about a greeter at Home Depot? (PS: I work on the Toledo and
Garrett Subs)

If the land you maintained for that many years Is part of your home and
you have been allowed to "squat" on it and make it part of your home
you need to get legal advice. You were allowed to use it and paid for
its use. You invested money and time into its upkeep and if csx NEVER
EVER STATED IN WRITING that you were allowed to do so but only at your
own expense without any chance of getting anything back from it then
you need to sue for groundskeeper expenses.

Ignore the remarks on your grammar..... Go see a lawyer.... every state
is different in regards to investment rights in property.   Will be
difficult if you didn't pay any property taxes, but if you have proof
you improved the property and your lawyer can show it has risen in
value because of your time, money and improvements, you may be able to
get some of your money back. You have a vested interest in it.


GO SEE A LAWYER!

Gail,
   If it is CSX's land and they are leasing it, I would think they
could stop the lease with proper notification. I am sure it is in the
lease agreement. I do feel for you and your family. 
   But Gail, if you are trying to speak with an appearance of having
some knowledge and professionalism, you really need some help. I do not
claim to be the best at spelling or grammar, but you have made my
set-backs look like nothing. 
   I wanted to copy and past some of your examples, but I would just
about have to do the entire post. The basic spelling and grammar errors
appear to be done by either a 2nd grader or a foreigner with 3 weeks of
English lessons.  
   If you are corresponding with CSX in writing, please please have
someone other than a family member proof read your stuff.

HEALTH ALERT

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE EXPOSED TO UNSANITARY TOILETS ON YOUR ENGINES
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO REPORT THESE ISSUES TO YOUR STATE HEALTH
DEPARTMENT. EVEN THOUGH YOU WORK FOR A CLASS ONE RAILROAD WHO'S
OPERATING RULES ARE REGULATED BY A FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AGENCY, YOU ARE
ALSO A CIVILIAN. THE STATE THAT YOU LIVE IN CAN CONSIDER YOU A HEALTH
RISK TO SURROUNDING BUSINESSES AS WELL AS THE COMMUNITY IF YOU ARE ABLE
TO SPREAD CONTAMINATES FROM YOUR WORK PLACE.

WHEN YOU STEP INTO A BATHROOM ON YOUR ENGINE THAT HAS SPLASHED OUT ON
THE FLOOR DUE TO POOR MAINTANANCE OF THE UNIT YOU HAVE NOW STEPPED IN
URINE AS WELL AS FECES. WHEN YOU LEAVE THE BATHROOM AND WALK AROUND THE
CAB, YOU HAVE NOW DISTRIBUTED THE CONTAMINATES ONTO THE FLOOR. WHEN YOU
PUT YOUR GRIPS AND TRAVEL BAGS ON THE FLOOR YOU HAVE NOW EXPOSED YOUR
PERSONAL BELONGINGS TO THE CONTAMINATION. YOU CARRY THESE INTO THE
HOTELS, PTI WAGONS AND INTO YOUR OWN PERSONAL VEHICLES AS WELL INTO ANY
YARD BUILDINGS. THIS IS A VIOLATION OF STATE AND FEDERAL HEALTH LAWS. IF
YOU TAKE CHARGE OF AN ENGINE IN THIS CONDITION YOU NEED TO REPORT IT TO
YOUR SUPERVISORS AND TO THE ENGINE HOUSE FOREMAN. DO NOT....I
REPEAT....DO NOT SET YOUR BELONGINGS ON A BARE FLOOR. SET THEM ON
PLASTIC BAGS. 
RETIRED FRA IS CORRECT ABOUT FILING A COMLAINT WITH YOUR
REPRESENTATIVE, BUT YOU ALSO NEED TO LET YOUR LOCAL HEALTH DEPARTMENT
KNOW OF THE CONSTANT EXPOSURES AT WORK. YOUR FAMILY PHYSICIAN MUST KNOW
ABOUT YOUR EXPOSURES TO UNCONTAINED URINE AND POSSIBLE FECES
CONTAMINATION. YOUR DOCTOR MAY NEED THIS INFO FOR FUTURE REFERENCES IF
YOU BECOME SICK AND IT IS RELATED TO EXPOSURE TO BODILY
FLUIDS/CONTAMINATES.
IF YOU DO NOT FEEL SAFE REPORTING THIS ISSUE TO YOUR LOCAL HEALTH
DEPARTMENT, YOUR PHYSICIAN CAN FILE A REPORT FOR YOU.

LOCO 10-20


First lets correct your comment. The UP has had cab red zone for years.
CSX is just adopting the same procedure but calling it sterile cab to
tie it into the military process. Everything they do is geared towards
a paramilitary look to appeal to military men and women in hopes of
recruiting them to their railroad. Looks good in the investors eyes and
on the front page of the employee gateway.

The UP cab red zone rule DOES NOT ALLOW THE ENGINEER  to be on the
radio nor talk to employees in charge of work authorities when running
on approaches and more restrictive signals. In fact their engineers
never talk to the employees of work authorities. They expect their
engineers to be fully focused on running the train fulfilling their
responsibilities. With extra computer screens now stuck in their
faces(trip optimizer, smart track and soon PTC) they wont be able to
focus any time to the other side of the cab. That's why the UP is
against any one man crews. 

If the newscasters are correct about it being single track, the
question is why where they on the same track heading in different
directions, No one had said whether they were running under TWC or CTC.
All I can say is if there are two trains running on the same track
heading straight towards each other, there had to be a very serious
lack of communication between someone or faulty signal displays. This
is tragic as hell!  I just hope to god they DONT try and pin all of it
on the surviving crew. Their lives are going to be a living hell for
them for a long time. I hope they come out of this ok and not crippled
or mentally ill for the rest of their lives. 

Everyone should say a prayer for them. Even if they were not CSX crew
members, they are in the same brotherhoods(UTU/BLET) and we should not
forget one our own has fallen! Their working conditions may not be that
different than ours!

ALL CREWS GREAT LAKES


PRINT OUT YOUR TIME TICKETS BEFORE YOU BEGIN ANY JOB YOU ARE ASSIGNED.

SOME OF THE GREAT LAKES CHIEFS ARE PLAYING GAMES AND DELIBERATELY
VIOLATING THE ETHICS POLICY AND THE UNION AGREEMENTS(NOTHING NEW)

POOLS CREWS ARE BEING ASKED TO RECREW TRAINS OUTSIDE THE TERMINALS AND
OFFERED RECREW TICKETS FOR THAT PARTICULAR TRAIN. THESE JOBS ARE NOT J
JOBS THAT ARE CONSIDERED DOG CATCHING JOBS. WHEN THE TRAINMASTER ASK
YOU IF YOU WANT TO DRAG A TRAIN IN AND YOU WILL BE GIVEN A TICKET AS A
RECREW FOR THAT JOB, MAKE SURE THE TICKET IS NOT GIVEN A "J" JOB
SYMBOL. YOU SHOULD SEE THE JOB SYMBOL SUCH AS...Q12314R

IF YOU ARE GIVEN THIS TICKET, AGAIN MAKE SURE YOU HAVE COPY. SOME OF
THE CHIEFS HAVE BEEN CHANGING THE TICKETS TO J JOBS SYMBOLS AFTER THE
CREWS ARE ALREADY ON THE TRAIN AND PERFORMING SERVICE. WHEN YOU BRING
THE TRAIN IN THEY WILL TELL YOU THAT YOU HAVE MORE WORK TO DO THAN YOU
WERE TOLD AND YOU HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO DO THE WORK BECAUSE YOU ARE A J
JOB-DOG CATCHER. WHEN THIS HAPPENS YOU WILL HAVE COPY OF ORIGINAL TICKET
AND COPY OF THEIR ILLEGAL CHANGE. FILE CHARGES WITH THE ETHIC COMMITTEE
AND GIVE BOTH COPIES TO YOUR LC. ALSO FORWARD COPIES TO THE FRA HOURS
OF SERVICE DIRECTOR. AFTER LONG TRIPS AND YOU ARE TIRED AND HAVE BEEN
TOLD THAT YOU WILL ONLY HAVE TO PERFORM SERVICE FOR ONE MORE TRAIN THE
FRA NEEDS TO KNOW THAT YOU HAVE BEEN LIED TO AND FORCED TO DO MORE THAN
YOU WERE TOLD BY MANAGEMENT.

THERE HAVE BEEN REPORTS THAT SOME MANAGERS HAVE BEEN MAKING COMMENTS
THAT IF YOU ARE A J JOB THEY CAN DO WHAT THEY PLEASE WITH YOU AND YOU
NOW BELONG TO THEM. IF YOU HEAR THESE COMMENTS MADE YOU NEED TO FILE
ETHIC CHARGES AGAINST THESE MANAGERS. DO NOT BE AFRAID TO DO SO! IF
THERE ARE MORE WITNESSES MAKE SURE YOU LET THE ETHICS COMMITTEE KNOW
WHO ELSE WAS PRESENT. ABUSE OF CREWS IS A SERIOUS VIOLATION OF THE
ETHICS RULES SET FORTH BY MICHAEL WARD. DO NOT LET THIS GO UNREPORTED!

Why do you ask?  You having a problem with one? Maybe taking a pole?
Answer to your question is based upon the situation. We have some that
we can count on to forget where you are and forget to line up signals.
We have(and had) some who are rude, obnoxious and control freaks who
try their best to act superior to you and try to make you look like and
idiot. They know we cant reach through the radio and choke them to death
so they wear big boy britches. what they forget is others can hear them
and they are not immune from ethic charges. However, they answer the
radio promptly and run more smoothly.
So as you can see it all depends on the situation. I personally would
rather deal with the slackers than a smart mouthed know it all who just
doesn't understand that running his mouth to a crew who is going
through a trip from hell will eventually get it shut!!!!!! Yes, they
have stressful days, but when its 100 degrees or 20 outside and the
air/heat doesn't work, the engines are throwing you all over the
place, the toilet smells like the crapper from hell, the radio has so
much feed back you want to rip it out of the cab, you power isn't
adequate and what should have been a 5 hour trip turns into an 8 and
you waited 2 hours for your paperwork and your train to show up, that
dispatcher sitting in his office in his nice chair needs to keep his
smart mouth shut and think about who is putting the butter on his
plate! The people moving the freight for him so he has a job!

Try looking at the west end dispatchers. You will find 2 that are
walking on fine ice now. Especially the newer one!  That answer your
question!

to the post below, that's all well and good but how can you keep men
away from the terminal when you have candy dangling at your face at all
times.It's like a kid in a candy store, if the candy is  there and you
want us to eat it ,we are not going to reject it.

 In my opinion she is so entrenched in negative attention,that is what
gets her excited, its called the big fix, an orgasm of narcissistic
supply,NS. She is a narcissistic person that thrive on an audience and
attention.

Narcissistic people are incapable of love or showing emotion.These kind
of people are sheep in wolf's clothing they can have an affair and 
never will get emotionally involved, and if they are married they will
never leave their spouse,as history has proved.

The only thing you can do is ignore someone like that, and don't
succumb to their temptations.

The reason she is all over this website is because people give her the
attention she wants and needs. If you think she doesn't read this
website and just eat it up then you are living with blinders on.
The more attention you give her in and out of the workplace, the more
she will gloat and manipulate. All of you have created this monster..
You continue to feed her need for attention.
Did it ever occur to you if you would just ignore her and never give
her one moment of attention except to do company business that maybe
she might just crawl into her rock cubicle and finally fade away. You
feed the fire wood and it keeps burning. NO ONE, ABSOLUTLEY NO ONE can
survive in an environment that doesn't involve interaction with their
own kind. Try what the Amish do when one of theirs steps out of line.
Shun her. And for god sakes, do something about trying to keep the
stupid over flown testosterone men away from the office. If they don't
belong there run them off!

Hey Fed Up. I'm sure there are a lot more people at CSX that step out
on their spouse besides lbt. Those people are not mentioned on here
because they do it on their own time and none of us know nor care. The
problem with LBT is that she makes sure EVERYONE around her at work
knows exactly what she is doing and with who. She thrives on the sick
negative attention. She wastes more company time on her personal
indiscretions than anyone I've ever seen. She is highly disruptive to
the workplace. And for those who see through her and choose not to
engage her --- watch out. She tears you down behind your back like no
tomorrow. Again wasting company time. THAT, FED UP, is why she is all
over this site.

UNSAFE

You didn't have to answer the phone. They might miscall you but they
would have to remove it. LC is right. Info in our agreements state very
clearly they are to have the info made available in the IVR system. This
agreement was made between the carrier and the Unions so the crews would
be able to have some idea of what they could and could not do while they
were at home. The FRA agreed with the Unions that making people slaves
to the telephone without any sense of relief while at home was creating
a hostile environment as well as not allowing employees any kind of
quality of life. In most cases where an employee was charge with a
miscall on a job that was not listed on the train line up or extra
board vacancies, there was a check into his history to see if he called
the IVR in the past 4 hours. This is why the option of choosing a 4 or 8
hour line up was made available. It is supposed to give the employee
some idea of what he can do in the next 4 hours while at home. If there
are no trains scheduled in those 4 hours and you leave to shop, get a
car worked on, visit family, etc. you should be able to do it without
FEAR of missing a last minute call.
Make sure you record the line up when you call. DO NOT use the computer
for your info. It changes constantly. A train that is scheduled can
change every 20-30 minutes. We have seen trains scheduled to be called
at 2 am and changed so many times it doesn't run until the next day! 
You are supposed to use the IVR for this info. The GLDV is out of
control again. This issue was addressed a few years back with the FRA
and some relief was seen. It is out of control again and will have to
be revisited with them. DOCUMENT,DOCUMENT,DOCUMENT, constant changes of
trains and times. Document how may times you are woke up because your
phone is ringing all night long while they run the rosters. Make sure
your local chairman is aware of each one. Send this info to the FRA
fatigue specialist as well. Poor planning on the companies part
doesn't constitute an emergency in your life! DO NOT jeopardize your
life by the lack of rest you obviously had forced upon you by bad
information in the system! If the information you accessed led you to
believe you could take a 7 hour nap and they call you in 2 after you
lay down, THATS UNACCEPTABLE.
