Corp

IF you really are from corporate (which I highly doubt) then why in the
hell don't you get off your ass and get out here and see what is really
going on. There is so much idiotic crap going on it will make your head
spin.  Want a good example?  No? Well your going to get one!   the
reason the company is so damn broke is because they will spend a
million just to save a dime. 
They got 3 trains running to an away from home terminal and there ARE
NO CREWS CHECKED INTO THE HOTEL!  They turn all three crews back home
and no one is there to protect scheduled trains. Six hours later they
order a dead head from the home terminal to come down and flip on a
train that was clearly on the schedule. It takes over 3  hours for the
crew to deadhead to the train. The crew has 2 hours to report so
that's over 11 HOURS TO GET TO THE DAMN TRAIN.  Now if they would have
put one of the crews into the hotel they would have been rested for the
train. Now they got 2 crews to pay and a deadhead trip which everyone
knows cost them more than the hotel charges to put them up for 10
hours.  What kind of idiotic moron would think that this is good
business.  I could give you a million examples of the stupid wasteful
spending you nut jobs do every single day. And guess who pays for it. 
THE HARD WORKING MEN IN THE TRENCHES THAT MAKE THIS RAILROAD RUN. THE
ONES WHO SIT IN THE HOTELS ON THE HOLIDAYS WHILE YOU PLAY AT HOME WITH
YOUR MONOPOLY GAMES.  WE GET A SHITTY BOUNS IF ANY WHILE YOUR
SUPERVISORS GET SAFETY BONUSES FOR US WORKING SAFELY. HOW THE HELL DO
YOU JUSTIFY GIVING A SUPERVISOR A BONUS BECAUSE THERE WERE NO  INJURIES
OR ACCIDENTS ON HIS TERRITORY. HE DIDNT WORK SAFE. HE DIDNT PREVENT
ACCIDENTS. THE CREWS DO THIS. WE WORK SAFE. SO WHERE IF OUR DAMN SAFETY
BONUS?
Answer this one. How can a supervisor write up a conductor for
accidently leaving a lock off a switch after he threw it to use it for
a switching move when this same supervisor has been told a dozen times
that another switch right next to it cant be locked because the latch
hole is broke on one side and wont hold a lock?  That switch is still
sitting there 3 month later broken and on a main line. YOU LEAD BY
EXAMPLE. TIME TO CLEAN HOUSE AND GET SOME NEW CHIEFS IN TOWN!
Happy frickin merry Christmas.   Enjoy YOUR BONUS IN LAS VEGAS!

Safety First.  
Safety is a great thing - no one wants to be hurt & no one wants
anybody else hurt. 
Come on, everyone with any experience\knowledge with the RR industry
knows the real reasons for the low amount of reportable injuries: 
employees fear harassment & retaliation.
If the RRs were to get blasted/bombarded with reportable injuries,
etc., just what would happen to all their management at all levels?  
May not work out so well for any of those that may have to move on.

Of course we are not in the knowledge based economy. We have eliminated
many of our old time labor specialists, and replaced them with failures
and ex-employees who could not make it in modern industry. Mix the worst
of the old with the worst of the new, and you have RR culture. Unless we
have massive safety failures we can run the same old procedures
unmolested, especially as most people think CSX runs passenger trains
under the AMTRAK label as our primary business. The carrier wants to
eliminate most employees ASAP, believing that most lower level managers
can operate under the direct supervision of higher level managers,
without assistance from the deplorables in craft.When it fails it is
ALWAYS the fault of agreement employees and lower management. Just look
at locations where the managers leave and get hired elsewhere. If they
are mediocre they stay, if they are big in nepotism (so common in
management) they get promoted. You will rarely see Google, Microsoft,
Accel Steel, ANY improving company seek out RR management at any level.
That tells you a lot. Rarely does anyone hires athletes from losing
teams. You won't see Cindy, Michael, etc. get job offers elsewhere. If
Bill Gates wanted a job tomorrow he would have a hundred offers
overnight in 100 different areas.

a
3 dollar bill!  He hasn't paid federal income tax for 20 years due to
his 4 bankruptcies---think Atlantic City casinos!---nearly $1 Billion!

Such a Great BUSINESSMAN---not!  Oh, and he still hasn't released his
income tax forms!  AND, he swore up and down--loudly--that he would
NEVER settle with the people suing him over his FRAUDULENT "Trump
University."  Then, right after the election, he settled with them
for
$25 MILLION!  Or did you miss that?  T-Rump is the biggest LIAR on the
planet!  What about that don't you and a lot of other air-heads /
suckers get?  P.T. Barnum was right about T-Rump voters---"A sucker
is
born every minute."  Except in the computer age, it's every

Comer, crawl back under the rock you came from.  You DON'T know the
difference between track warrants and TC.  Still waiting on your answer

BTW, how about the two CSX trains running into each other near Citra,
Florida, on Nov. 16th?  One of the Engineers told the news media that,
"I fell asleep."  Sure, and my cats are astronauts.  WHAT ABOUT THE
CONDUCTOR?  Was he asleep, too?  There is a remotely-operated track
switch where the collision happened.  Do you suppose it was
mis-aligned?  Somebody is lying about this terrible collision and
massive derailment, plus 7,400 gallons of diesel fuel spilled.  SEE:

Dear: Unfair,
The BOSS is not, nor, have they ever been PROTECTED from drug testing.
All CSX employees fall under the same rules. Testing is different
between those that are in the Transportation Trades.

Did you know that the drug testing does not include non contract
employees? The "boss" comes in drunk or high no big deal. People in 
charge of issuing orders and over seeing the safety of the crews are
protected. Think that makes any sense.  Never ever seen one single
manager ever called in to pee in a cup. Now what kind of horse shit is
that!

Attention all Crews


If you have any doubts on what will be medically covered if you must
mark off sick for a doctors appointment or procedure ordered by you
physician, call the CSX medical department and they will explain to you
what is covered.  It has just come to our attention that several
employees were not aware that colon cancer testing is covered as an
excused exam/illness if you mark off sick to have this done. DO NOT BE
AFRAID TO MARK OFF SICK. You should be allowed no less than 48 hours
off for the procedure. Just recently an employee complained that he had
taken the medication that was necessary to flush the system but was not
aware of how potent the liquid would be. He did schedule the following
day off to have the procedure done. When he was called that morning he
contacted the Chief and the dispatcher requesting he be dead headed
home after arriving at his away from home hotel.He had several giggle
and snicker from both officers and was told they who see what they
could do. Later that evening several crews were dead headed in front of
him and he was left to take a train home. We was unable to do his job
safely and with full attention because he was in the Locomotive
bathroom more than he was in the cab.   DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES
COME TO WORK if you have taken anything of this nature. The behavior of
the supervisors towards this employee was deplorable and should never go
unreported. This may have been a funny incident to them but it was not
to the reporting employee. Again, if you have any doubts whether a
medical procedure will be covered if you mark off sick call the CSX
medical department.

TO: M of W
            New FRA testing may not be fair, but it is a safety law /
regulation. AND, I doubt the RR is stalling it to protect the troops.
They are just failing to comply with government safety regulations in
an appropriate manner, which I am sure they would not permit you to do.
