CSX-Sucks!

Asleep At The Wheel

Casey Jones you'd better,
watch your speed...

    "The railroad is a 24 hour a day, 7 day a week operation", many of us have been told, when requesting some extra 'rest' between jobs. Unfortunately, the people that make the railroad move, like all other people, do not operate "24 hours a day, 7 days a week".

    Anyone who's worked around the clock has either seen, or experienced first-hand, the inevitable effects of sleep deprivation. Maybe it was you, maybe it was the jitney driver, maybe it was....

    The real fun is when someone tries to explain to the crew-caller that they are too tired to go to work.

Why iisn't attendance policies part of the contract?   They should and
could be.   There is enough silly shit in there.   Ingram sure had the
bid system shoved down the engineers throats when he was here.   Was
the bid system not  to control  layoff?   Is this not attendance
issues?   Anything can be placed in a contract.   I believe most Union
members want this addressed in contracts.  The ble just happened to
sign their contract right before this notice was released to the men. 
This was no accident it just didn't work out that way.  This was all
carefully planned out.

I'm all about paying union dues and being a union member.   We
couldn't work for csx without an union or at least I wouldn't.   That
being said when I pay dues to my union monthly and all my co-workers do
as well.    I expect representation.  I expect the details of a
contract to be defined and understood before it's signed.  I expect
not to be harassed by the company with silly ass attendance policies. 
I expect my valid claims to be handled and payed in a timely manner.  I
expect my LC to keep his mouth shut about me wanting a day off.  When he
is seen getting drunk on social media while he's off union.   I expect
my union brothers and sisters not to be sleeping with the enemy.  I
expect my L/C not to take company positions or safety suck jobs. 

This attendance policy effective 3-1 would never happen if we had a
union not in bed with the company.   Correct me If I'm wrong but has
the utu or ble addressed this on their websites.  No they have not! 
Just like previous attendance changes not a damn thing will change.  Is
it not funny that the ble signed their contract right before this
bullshit.

I hope it doesn't happen if right to work is ever the law of the
land.
There will be a lot of brothers and sisters stop paying union dues
because our union is so passive with all csx's bullshit.

I have been reading posts and posting on CSX-Sucks for about 2-1/2 years
now and have recently noticed a big increase in activity here. So is it
any wonder that moles like the one that posted yesterday are also
starting to pop up?

Our no good utu and ble lc are both laid off union again.   New system
notice released on attendance effective March 1st.   We all know
they're    not doing a damn thing but setting home beating their meat.
 I wish that  short fuck would work at least one weekend with the rest
of us.  Maybe just maybe this would be as issue with him.  I'm not
sure how the new utu lc will do  or where he stands but the ble lc is a
short no good bitching little fucker who thinks he's a rfe.  He handles
claims like my insane granny.  WE ALL KNOW CSX SUCKS COCK.   LET ME TELL
THOSE WHO DON'T KNOW THE UTU AND BLE SUCK  BIG COCK.  I FIND IT FUNNY
THAT THE CONTRACTS STATE HIS IS A CLOSED SHOP JOB AND THERE ARE MEN AND
WOMEN THAT BELIEVE THE UNION NOT IN BED WITH CSX.

uNION BUSINESS ON THE WEEKENDS AND HOLIDAYS NEED TO BE A THING OF THE
PAST.

HEY CINDY IF YOU HAD A REAL MAN KNOCKING THE BOTTOM OUT OF THAT THING

Talk about a good old American railroad coming in to crunch a recovering
economy by taking over a 15% increase on costs in less than 30 days.
They are pushing people into early retirement or risk being released
early to make their share holders more money.  They're making hand
over fist and now they are plotting their pricing to resemble a
expedited OTR service vs. the crappy, always late and always a problem
service they provide.   They're now going to cripple our economy by
making shippers have to pay more for their service which ultimately
will be passed on to the consumers.  Way to go CSX.... starting to
smell like Wal-Mart!

I see a few post from the kid's that are on leave from their xbox. My
comment is centered on CSX as a Corp. I see the concern's for rest
days and time off, and that point seems to only apply to T/E. The only
short checks are T/E, the long hours are only T/E. 
The horrible managers are every manager. If just one of T/E was moved
to an air conditioned office with a company car, and an expense
account, the stress would kill them.
 The trades have for years been at odds with managers, preaching never
go there, pay's less and they are suck asses. So far from the truth.
 New TM'S are educated, inexperienced, and in need of acceptance. I
suggest ya meet them, greet them, and accept them. They will remember
you down the road.
 One more point that need's to be made is about the dummies that are
running this company. Just hope they can stay dumb enough to sell
enough freight to make payroll, when many make over 70k per year, and
most over 40k. Not to bad in my humble opinion.

You want to be a manager at CSXT? Fail a drug test and 9 months later
when you come back off your rule G CSX will give you the title that
most abuse. What's that you say? you have to have a clean employee
record for a year without any absences or assessments? Those rules only
apply to those that CSX says they do.. Yeah, yeah, yeah I know CSX made
that rule but its ok, trust me! We look for the worst employees to put
in charge! Shitty employee and now a shitty manager. From someone that
use to go home after the morning call because their manager use to let
them. No management experience need, never been a foreman, no need.
Stole from the company then and sure that has not stopped. Who's going
to listen and make the difference? No one.... 

      CSX is a bright shiny fortune 500 company on the outside that
gives a appearance that safety is #1 and they care. Have you seen the
areas where these trains run? Employees defenseless work in high urban
threat areas. We will wait until something happens to make changes,
just like all the other rules and regulations written in blood.

      Don't waste your time calling Ethics because eventually the
manager that is the problem will come to you ans ask for a statement
and dissolve the issue. Confidential? yea right!

      So many issues with this company and yet it is blamed on the
employee. "Oh, its just a disgruntled employee!" Is it? Why is that
employee disgruntled?

      Fact based: A statement thrown around by CSX. If you want fact
based lets pull radio records of trains that have passed. Lets pull
paper work that has been documented by and outside party. "I don't
care that 6 employees have the same story! I am going continuously
repeat "FACT BASED" and make everything your fault! Oh yea and also
keep calling you a liar!" GREAT MANAGEMENT SKILLS!!!

I really do hope that CSX Management takes the time to read this and
other railroad websites, especially TrainOrders.com. I'm sure they
view CSX-Sucks.com as entertainment, with only disgruntle employees
being the catalyst of the posters.  But, for their information, many
others view them in the same light as most here. In comparison to the
other “Big Three” railroads, CSX is, from what I can tell, a “Wooden
Axel” outfit. Meaning basically, it's run by non-railroad people at
the corporate level and the "Bottom Line" being the most important or
the only indicator of the railroad's productivity and efficiency.

Back in 1980, Southern Pacific (and other railroads) were flush with
excess operating employees, cabooses, fireman, brakemen, etc. now
history. The country was in the middle of the Carter rescission,
freight loadings were way down, locomotives were stored, mothballed in
long lines. Many low seniority brakemen and switchmen were cut-off. The
mood of management then was much as the CSX is now; harass the men,
efficiency testing all the time. If you were a promoted engineer and
cut back as a fireman, then you were fair game. The work morale was
just as the CSX seems to be today. Finally, someone broke. For you CSX
managers, these means he went “Postal.” I'm sure I need not explain
the definition of that term. One particular yardmaster, with the
encouragement of  a few Asst-Terminal Superintendents, had really be
harassing the yard crews unmercifully. As the sun came up one morning,
this yardmaster was walking down the steps from the Trim Tower at SP's
West Colton Yard in southern California. An old  head switchman walked
up a literally blew him away with a 12ga. shotgut....yes, killed him.
The man is still in a California prison. The man's name escapes me,
but I believe they called the yardmaster Pinky. After this incident,
things on the SP changed over night....at least on the Los Angeles
Division.

Now, point being; don't think this can't happen on the CSX. It can
and I would bet it will. CSX Management, listen up...people can only
take so much. From what I read and hear, many of your first line
managers are pushing people to the breaking point. Just take some poor
guy going through a divorce, a serious illness  or another of life's
traumatic situations, feeling distraught, life not worth living. Now,
take one of your company officers, overly concerned  about him
separating two cars 48 feet not 50, sights him for an investigation,
this just might be the straw that breaks the camel's back, and he goes
Postal. Don't feel it can't happen, I have shown you it has, on a
railroad. We all know it's happened many time at the US Postal
Service.

ROSELAKE....
         Idk if Aleek is still doing his pot smoking but he sure
thought it was funny that day. Like he had gotten one over on CSX.
He was even holding his hand up making the movements of smoking a
joint.

The railroad is so corrupt within CSX. I sometime can believe the
idiots they hire here. Then they let the ones go that are actually
doing good.
Doesn't make sense to me...but aleek and ryan do there own thing and
we cant stand up without being mistreated or followed in the yard with
them constantly testing us. Or in aleeks way he tests.....from the seat
in his office looking out the window.

THE SAFTY Record at RoseLake isn't what they claim...
 1st They tell you they don't want to know....
 2nd If you do tell them....they say "i didn't hear it"
 3rd Ive personally told " if you get hurt here..you wont work here 
any longer. We have ways to get rid of you here." Ryan Williams says
          SOMEONE like scott conner needs to get involved and fire them
for a change!

ROSE LAKE= Aleek Young + Ryan Williams = Terrible place to work.
    "BIG BLACK the pot smoker" + "Lyin Ryan"
These guys are insane...Not ethical at all. I have personally have sat
at the break table and over heard ALEEK talk about when he got the job
offer for Management he was in Miami smoking pot on the beach. He said
he had to tell them he would be on vacation for a month so he had
plenty of time to get it out of his system.
   RYAN he is a weirdo with a huge ego. He seems to think cuz he was a
marine he is some kind of tough guy. Not really guy...we don't like
you and your just a young ass punk. He orders old heads around like he
knows better than someone that has been on the railroad for TWICE his
AGE! Honestly we hope you just choke on your meal when you take a
break! 
   MANAGEMENT....Back off ...! We are all fed up with you attitudes and
terrible way you treat us here. Everyone might have to go out and call
Redblock one night and see how you get the 008 out...

      ANY1 ELSE HAVE ANY STORYS ABOUT ROSELAKE?
