Breaking news. Now is the time to strike. 

group representing rail unions in bargaining with railroad over a new
general agreement says the negotiations have reached an impasse,
leading them to file for arbitration.

A brief letter today (Thursday, Jan. 20) from Jeremy R. Ferguson,
president of the International Association of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail
and Transportation Workers-Transportation Division (SMART-TD) informed
other union officials of the development. It says the Coordinated
Bargaining Coalition will file for arbitration next week.

Negotiations began in February 2020 between the railroads and union
coalition, which represents the American Train Dispatchers Association,
Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen, Brotherhood of
Railroad Signalmen, International Association of Machinists,
International Brotherhood of Boilermakers, National Conference of
Firemen & Oilers, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers,
Transport Workers Union of America, Transportation Communications Union
and SMART-TD. The industry group, the National Carriers’ Conference
Committee, represents BNSF Railway, CSX Transportation, Kansas City
Southern, Norfolk Southern, Union Pacific, and the U.S. railroads owned
by by Canadian National.

Negotiations are held every five years and can continue as long as both
sides believe progress is being made.

Crew size is a key factor in the negotiations. Before negotiations
opened, railroads called for conductors to be taken off of trains to
become a “ground-based” position [see “Nationwide railroad labor talks
start …,” Trains News Wire, Jan. 15, 2020]. And the subject sparked a
lawsuit in which SMART-TD sued the National Mediation Board after that
government agency appointed an arbitrator to address the issue [see
“Railroads, unions butt heads on crew size …,”News Wire, Jan. 31,
2020].

That’s right walk up to the line don’t cross it. Rules there rules use
them, throw a fuck into these militant bastards. There job management
is to make your life difficult ,use the rules you are to work by to
throw a fuck into these, militant bastards. Don’t let them treat you
like a pee on. Field worker generate the profit ,and board of directors
know it. They will respect the workers or pay the price.

Whining on this website isn't going to do anything... start dog lawing
every train. If you run out of time, don't keep moving to a spot where
you can easily be picked up, stop wherever and let the OT add up. Have
to do work on the line of road? Walk slower and more often, ride the
bottom less. Watching a passing train by? Report every flat spot,
detect you see or hear. 
The unions are weak, the only way to get to the carrier is by killing
every train on the system causing more recrews, which they claim they
don't have enough of.

Nothing like advising others on how easy it is to break into a shipping
container.  Not to mention, how inconsequential the penalty is, if the
cops bother to arrest you.

Locomotive Operator 10-20 years? Really?
What role does the Bidum administration play in the uptick of crime?
Maybe, just maybe defunding the Police and not prosecuting criminals
for their criminal
behavior might have something to do with it! When there are no
consequences for
ones bad behavior then these acts are escalated! That's a fact based
on observation. SMH

Now about the proposed weekly testing for those that aren't vaccinated
is Ludicrous to
say the least. I know as many if not more vaccinated people that have
contracted the Rona and spread it around than not, after receiving the
clot shot. If you're going to test weekly,
 it has to apply to everyone whether vaccinated or not! The shot has
been proven to not be effective. Everyone is getting sick. If it was
proven to be 100 percent effective (and it's not) then that might
work!  Being a good sheep doesn't equate to immunity!

Yes 3 weeks ago I tested positive for Rona and I tested Negative for
living my life in fear!

Government of the People, by the People and for the People!!!!  Peace
Out!

Withholding union dues alerts UTU/SMART to the dissatisfaction of its
membership that operate under the CSX GCA. How much does UTU/SMART make
off of CSX conductors per year?

Now think about how this disrupts labor relations/bargaining. Meaning
any current talks are void, any handshake agreements with the GCA are
void, and future talks are held with a person that the workforce
actually believes in. They wont be serving tea and biscuits at the
bargaining table.

The only thing both bodies understand is money. Both sides legal
departments will have to work overtime to address the issue. Something
so simple can create  a huge headache. 

If you don’t understand. Union membership is required to work under the
agreement. If the agreement holders are not supported by the membership
then the company cannot legally negotiate with them. They can try but
then they open themselves up to litigation. How can investigations and
appeals be processed when membership declares they do not support the
union? It’s an impeachment plain and simple. 

But you can dream of striking one day if you want...

Lets say they gave us permission to strike tomorrow , would a strike
actually occur? 

If so, It would be an unpaid vacation at best, and create a larger
divide between management and labor, and do absolutely nothing for
bargaining.  

You would come back to work with unpaid claims, your current rate of
pay, and all the same union leadership. 

What would a strike accomplish? Can you explain that clearly? 

Do you want better representation or do you just want to screw the
company over? 

Think logically train man.

Unless "withholding union dues" changes the Railway Labor Act nothing
will change. You guys been out here 10 or 20 years and are still too
dumb to see who and what actually screws us. As long as federal law
says we have to ask permission to strike nothing will ever change.

Not saying the medical doesnt have issues, but I only had to wait on
line 25 minutes before they answered. That no different than waiting
for a crew caller  to answer! And yes, I've waited 45 minutes several
times on a crew caller. I've also listened to the phone ring over 50
times before it just disconnects.
So the CSX medical department isn't any worse than any other
department in CSX.
If you got an issue that CSX medical should SERIOUSLY know about and it
effects your co workers or the public you can call your county health
department. You have every right.

The days of classic railroading are back minus the drugs and alcohol-you
have all just been conditioned to move so you cant see it. 

Corporate goals have nothing to do with the employee on the ground. If
you cant class 1000 cars per minute/hour/shift/day -that is a failure
of the person who wears a suit and tie to work. 

Lack of motivation, speed, or employee availability is a failure of the
corporations leadership -not of the employees. 

The longer you fuck with employees the more you will have to pay in the
end. Universal law requires balance. 

You managers kept your hands on the scale so long you began to believe
you were in control. Slaves rebel - but of course you didn’t  know
because they don't teach that in business 101.

Just imagine Shaniqua in payroll face when she receives a box truck full
of notarized letters demanding “immediate suspension of union dues
deductions”. Thousands of letters surrounding her cubicle weighing
literally hundreds of pounds.

Legal department head will spin. GCA Chair will resign immediately.
SHANIQUA HEAD GONNA SPIN take a early retirement. System notice title
will read “YO WTF ARE YOU ASSHOLES DOING…” Your fav trainmaster gonna
hand his wife over to you because your manly balls. Investigations will
be postponed system-wide. 

NO STRIKE NECESSARY!

Withholding dues is the only way to effect change. None of the old dudes
from cockrail remember that they signed an authorization for dues
deductions but they sure remember how to read signals.

How do you keep benefits of union protection and get rid of all GCA
officers in one sweep? 

WITHHOLD DUES. 

Ask me how much money your favorite local is making and ill show you
why things aren't changing.
