Safety First

Rule #1 -- Don't get hurt.

    Safety is the first priority. Er, or is it the second, after money.... Or the third after getting the trains out....

CSX had the same formula for success, with a stock that jumped to $27
from $24, and a 13 percent reduction in headcount. That is nearly 4,500
fewer employees versus last year.

After selling the container ships and major resorts I guess Ward and
Co. sell off employees. He sell his token wife?

To conductor, you will lose your trainman seniority if you transfer to
another craft, the only option i know of lets say you get layed off as
a trainman and if they need men n another craft you will not lose your
trainman seniority as long as you go back to train service when
re-called, another way is if you go into management as a tm rfe or ym,
then you will retain your trainman seniority, all depends on what rr
you work for as some roads to not let you do this.

I say leave the trainmaster's comments stay. Let people see the quality
of CSX managers and what railroaders have to deal with. This is just
another black eye for CSX

it IS POSSIBLE TO RETAIN SENIORITY IN YOUR CURRENT CRAFT IF THE CARRIER,
THE UNION WHOSE WORK YOU ARE LEAVING, AND THE NEW UNION YOU ARE STARTING
TO W0RK FOR, ALL AGREE. SOMETIMES THIS MAY BE A ONE SHOT DEAL. FOR
EXAMPLE A CLERK OR CONDUCTOR MAY BECOME A YARDMASTER, AND RETAIN HIS
PRIOR SENIORITY, BUT I DON'T THINK THE YM UNION WILL LET YOU GO BACK
AND FORTH.

I love the taste of a conductor's wife's pussy in the morning (or
afternoon).  Keep laying up in the away from home, jacking off to
PornHub on your IPad, and whining on this site.  Leave the fucking to
me and the sucking to your wife.

PS-she likes to have to her droopy nips bit a little from time to time.
 She also tells me she might suck your cock more if you would shave that
beast once in a while.

No.

Unless they changed something......
New start in another (Signal, Car, M of W, etc.) dept., seniority
starts from scratch.

Total service time WILL count towards vacation entitlement (if same RR)
& RR Retirement.

I think it's funny how this company demands loyalty from its
employees..especially the union employees. But here's a thought..Treat
your employees well and CSX wouldn't have to demand loyalty. When a
person or company demands loyalty that means they don't deserve it in
the first place. This company has went down so much..Ward and Sanborn
have killed morale. Oh well..investors should part ways with these two
before they ruin things any further.

The car operation in Selkirk has some top notch managers these days.
only a couple have a clue as how to run a yard. I'm surprised were
still employed with the back wards thinking of these guys. One just
yells and screams when things get a little screwed up. We are waiting
for him to blow up and assault some one.  Another will just disappear
and hope it all works out. Some of the others are just trying to get
through the day. I genuinely feel sorry for a few of them. Jacksonville
probably thinks they are doing a good job.

exchange , I think your numbers are off....... 7 thousand laid off?????
csx has about 28,000 people working for them and that includes t&e,
mangers, dispatch and everyone else. if they laid off 7000 people then
they would have gotten rid of 1/4 of there work force. I say maybe 2000
system wide in all departments and I'm sure that maybe on the high side

That is horrible. Sounds like CSX these days. Nobody job briefs anymore
during shift change. Reductions across the system is forcing people to
work overtime and people are given additional duties since clerks are a
thing of the past. It appears the latest Amtrak incident resulting in
the death of 2 of its workers was a result of dispatchers not job
briefing during a shift change. That is ridiculous. Hope that CSX has
better measures but I doubt that's the case. CSX will sacrifice safety
to save a dollar so they can pay executives their well deserved bonuses.

New
Think that was good? Try this one on for size.  Got called to go recrew
a train that was supposed to be tied down in ABS signaled territory. No
train at the location. Find out its sitting in EC1 territory. Crew
turned over control to the dispatchers before they left. Dispatcher
says bad turnover info given out. who the hell should be walked to the
front door and sent packing on that one? Got a mandatory directive
given on a train and its location and next dispatcher doesn't know
where it really is? We did that kind of piss poor job briefing with a
mandatory directive we would all be looking at 30 days!

L&N


U been gone too long.   Scared is right. Ive had the same thing done to
me too. And yes, we did call the dispatcher first and he didn't know a
thing about the train ever being out on the system or why it was
called. Said call chief and ask. Then after trying a dozen times to get
through and getting no where we do some research by calling all the guys
we know that know who to call else where and find out one of the trains
we were called for was already yarded at the final destination by a
crew that no one knew was asked to work out of the yard as a
favor....All boiled down to shift changes and no one doing a turnover
worth a shit. I don't know about you but we all expect trainmasters to
not know whats going on in their yards, but we do expect dispatchers to
know where every train is out their on the rail. If they been yarded
and are off the main line the dispatchers should know. If it gets drug
in by a crew who's doing a favor the dispatchers should know who the
hell is getting on it and moving it and when its off the line. Cant
count how many times we been called to recrew a train and go to where
its supposed to be just to find out its really 40-50 miles down the
road.  Real good one once, we went to get on a train just to find out
it wasn't there and when we called the dispatcher and told him there
wasn't a train there he said to just keep driving south until we find
one!  
No excuses L&N. Don't try to make any!

Re scared:  Well, let me help you out on this dilemma that you are
having . Please don't be scared it is no big deal. It is Not a lost
train the dispatcher knows where it is.  If you were called for a train
at a certain destination things happen on the railroad . If the train
ran into trouble and could not make its destination they will tie it
down on the line of road.  You will be called for a train anticipating
the train making  it's destination but sometimes that does not happen.
 A lot of things can happen for the train not to make it.  IE: train
going into emergency . First off, did you call the train dispatcher and
ask him where the train was when you went on duty.  That should be the
first thing you should do . Again, it is not a lost train so don't get
all excited.  Besides air traffic controllers just can't tie down
planes in midair.  But if you do remember here while back, they did
lose an airplane about two years ago and still have not found it, just
license...Now, that is scary. Hope this helped you out.

CSX!!!!
 

How in the hell do you lose a train????? You let csx run it across the
railroad!   How in the hell can we come in to work and be told that the
train we were called for isn't there and as far as they know it never
left its previous terminal. Then after a little more research they find
out that its  tied down outside of its destination that your were called
to take it.  


WHAT THE FRICKING @Y$#$&*&** IS GOING ON!  What in the hell is the FRA
and the USDOT doing to keep a tab on these trains. Are they just
sitting in their little padded rooms on their little padded asses and
padding their big fat pockets. Bet they didn't know that train was
loaded with hazmats either. Can you image what would happen if the
airlines handled their flights the way csx handles their trains.  They
would be falling out of the sky from running into each other!

They think this is a big fat joke and just laugh and shrug it off. Well
you can bet your bottom dollar when I leave the job Im living as far
away from a csx track as I can!  HOW DO YOU LOSE TRACT OF A FUCKING
TRAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
