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....

Loco  

Sounds like an idiot problem in labor relations department. Real STUPID
MOVE TO SAY THE GPS INFO LOST TRACT OF ANY TRAIN! As for dispatchers
knowing where u are? NOT all the time. how about when they want to put
a track car behind u and they ask u were your head end is located? Love
it when they get smart and want to know if your still on the move after
U stopped to tone them up cause u broke down and u been waiting 15
minutes. Maybe we should all tell them to CHECK THE STINKING GPS!

They have to know where trains are. Ask a dispatcher.
Denying penalty claims (even valid ones, for whatever reason) is an age
old tactic.  Uncommon that one is paid right away.  Have to submit all
info properly to your LC when claims are denied & hope that they're
handled & forwarded. Then be patient.  May take yrs.  If valid, the RR
eventually has to ante up -- at the pay rate applicable when submitted.
 Aggravating but the way it usually is.

CALL HOMELAND SECURITY


Labor relations is at it again!  Just denied my claim and 2 other guys
stating that the GPS data system says our trains never ran on the
territory we claimed.  THEY LOST OUR FRICKING  TRAINS AGAIN! THIS IS
BULLSHIT. HOW CAN A RAILROAD LOSE THEIR FRICKING TRAINS. HOW CAN THEY
NOT FIND OR KEEP TRACT OF OUR TRAINS AND WHERE THEY ARE TRAVELING. WE
HAD HAZARDOUS MATERIAL CARS ON THE TRAIN THEY LOST. DOES THE PUBLIC
HAVE ANY IDEA HOW INSANE IT IS THAT A RAILROAD CANT KEEP TRACT OF WHERE
THEIR DANGEROUS TRAINS ARE TRAVELING.

Maybe we should be calling the USDOT and tell them whats going on too!

MALLARD

YOU are so full of shit. You better do your research a little better.
CSX is the lowest paying class one railroad in the country! Let me
guess....your a company mole who was sent to this site to stir shit and
distract posters from the important FACTS!   Clean engines and good
working radios?? I get more stinky shitters, broken seats, arm rest
missing, no visors, no reading lights, no side mirror, no ac OR fan and
radios that cant pick up shit a week than you can even count. I don't
believe you work for csx. If you do and your getting cushy engines all
the time then you must be a pet.

Guessing you don't get your union agreed pay stolen every week either.
You got to be joking. They spit on our agreement every single pay period
like they breath air.  I have had over a 1000 taken from me this year on
their yellow belly indian giving crap that our agreement gives us in
plain black and white writing. I have had claims denied with the most
stupid irrelevant answers that are so laughable you almost choke from
laughing so hard! It has happened to others. All it does is show that
they don't even read the claims, they just pull an answer out of their
asses!
Have you never been blamed for a mistake the company made???? They want
to blame the crew for fra and clearance bureau mistakes that they make
just to try and cover up their mistakes. How many times have you tried
to tone up the dispatcher with a serious problem with the train or
power just to get a dead tone or they leave you sitting and waiting for
over 20 minutes. Several of us have tried to use the emergency channel
just to have the dispatch tell us it didn't work.

Man, you must be living in a frickin fantasy world.  That really pisses
me off you saying csx pays the best. You don't know shit man!

Don't really see how bad CSX is. Worked 10 years with Nazi
Southernschwitz and CSX is much nicer to me. Guys, this ain't a white
collar 9-5 job. You are transporting freight. You're gonna be treated
like shit sometimes and you gotta deal with it. Don't come into the
industry wanting a lavish working condition. There's times when I
wanna blow up at the dispatcher, but that's just part of the job. When
you factor in CSX's pay is arguably higher than any Class 1, and the
usually well kept locomotives most with ACs and good radios, you can't
hate on the company. Time is money, and we are just little laborers to
management but that's what it's like anywhere. Go join NS if you
think CSX is bad, and I'll be sitting here laughing my ass off while
you got high blood pressure and denied pay rates. The Chicken Shit
eXpress will get even better once MJW leaves in 3 years, he'll
hopefully get replaced with someone who has bigger balls and won't
negotiate with EHH for a merge.

Union Pay Facts

the highest paid union officer within the BLE, including the
international officers.

Yep..Thatís right. And I can tell you, DW is worth every dollar he
gets. Just ask any LA Div. Engineers. He would tear the CSX a new ass.
Iíve know Bill for 35 years. Every railroad division needs a union rep
as he.

AVON CREWS

LISTEN UP!!!  When you are called to work on a WORK train IT IS NOT
REVENUE SERVICE. You are to be issued a ticket under kind of service 9.
CMC had been issuing these tickets as through freight under kind of
service 2. They are doing this because they are in violation of article
47 in regards to work trains. If they call a work train at least 4 times
in a week they are supposed to put the job up for bid on the electronic
bid system. The company does not want to do this so they are hoping
that putting the tickets under kind of service 2 as through freight
will not draw attention to what is happening. Kind of service 9 is also
a higher rate of pay for a days work. DO NOT TAKE a work train out until
you call cmc and make them change it to a kind of service 9. If they
give you any trouble them you make sure they understand that you know
this is NOT revenue service and it is not through freight If they keep
your ticket under through freight then they are admitting that it is
being considered revenue service and they should be reporting the
service to the IRS for tax purposes.

His supposed specialty is getting all the [convicted felons] child

Friend and family

It is done mostly for proof when they are sued for negligence because
someone is injured on faulty equipment or slips and falls that they are
taking a strong stance on safety. If you have never read the safety
manuals or the system bulletins and system notices you wouldn't
understand the extreme levels they go to protect themselves. There are
pages upon pages of bulletins and notices listing  unsafe walking
conditions across the system all published to cover their butts if
someone gets hurt while working. There are slip, trip and fall notices
and warnings in their safety manuals. Look where you step, Scan the
ground before you take a step. Be aware of the area that surrounds you.
Check all steps and ladders and the list goes on.

Now as for harassment, that is a different matter. Since the
employee's are working under a union agreement they have to have a
good reason to fire someone. Those who get fired due to their own
stupidity is a slam dunk win for them. Easy money. In the meantime it
is necessary for them to hand out observation failures. The more the
better. Looks good in the court room. An employee gets to many failures
and he heads to the suspension corner. To many suspensions and he heads
for the streets. If everyone followed every single rule in the book to
the letter it wouldn't matter. A turn over rate due to unsafe
employee's is a plus for them. Now that the a lot of monetary safety
awards have been done away with (for the railroad) you would think
things would lighten up, but not happening. They seem to feel that
ruling with fear is their best plan of attack. 
Reducing the workforce is not a problem for them as long as the
government hands out aid/grants to the railroads to recruit and train
new employee's especially military personnel. With the unemployment
rate so high and good jobs hard to come by the railroads are not
worried about replacing those who are fired.
The problem is with the targeting of specific employee's. It isn't
hard for anyone to figure out that they are being followed more often
than others. Being approached numerous times through out each week is a
good sign that you are on a watch list. There is not much an employee
can do if he is put on a watch list. Document times and places along
with who is approaching you then meet with your local representative
and put a plan of action in motion. These are their choices. Not good
ones with weak unions! Therefore the company continues its vicious
cycle. The price of working for big business.
The best thing for the railroad employee is to come to work, stay in
the shadow and do not under any circumstances draw any attention to
yourself. There will be many other fish to fry out in the field.

Crews

Is anyone else having problems getting their information on deadheads
and held away to print when you print out your pay tickets.  None of us
can get that info to print. The only thing that prints is the standard
pay info. If you look at the activity summary all you get is the info
that's on the trip itself.  We need copies of everything we submit so
when they don't pay us what we earned we got proof we submitted it.
The LC's say we need this info for our claims.
