Name: Furlough retention board
Employed as: Conductor, for 1-10 years
Posted: 04 June 2012

Conditions less than 1 year

I understand what you are talking about. I am in the same boat but from
experience at other jobs and a gut feeling we should stick it out. I
hope you are not on the furlough retention board because you are marked
up 3 days and off 4 per week but, only paid for 2 days. In addition,
they have yet to pay it correctly and are not sending checks or grossly
overpaying then deducting $250/half. I don't know what contract you are
under but with ours we should be able to go to other terminals and
qualify but are being denied. I stand for 25+ jobs at nearby terminals
and cannot take one as a brakeman. I also have younger employees
working at my home terminal, marked up, and cannot take or qualify
there either. I can say that I live near several mines and the loadouts
have coal stacked to the moon but not moving. I think that there is a
lot of political posturing going on and the toughest rooster will win.
Keep your chin up!
