Just wait, till it happens
UP lost THE APL CONTRACTS AND RAN, NOT WALKED TO BNSF. MORE OCEAN CARRIER SHIPPERS ARE COMING TO BNSF FROM UNION PATHETIC....
I recently changed railroads and they skate by with about 1/3 the people and layers of management. I would watch out because at some point BNSF will do its classic monkey see monkey due.
The BNSF Management Trainee Program is a scam. It is marketed as an elevated program with a lot of potential and growth. I did not experience that at all. In my 6 years as a foreman, I received 4 years of "exceeds" overall performance and only one... — read more
Hi everyone! Can someone inform me about the final date for COBRA acceptance and the end of our current benefits?
https://www.progressiverailroading.com/labor/news/BLET-members-approve-work-life-benefits-pact-with-BNSF--70342 What’s your thoughts on this?
Great news story on KSTP news out of Minneapolis yesterday. We need more people like Don to STEP UP and blow the whistle on the sc-mbags running this railroad. BE BRAVE... — read more
Anybody got info about Interbay Seattle and Vancouver Portland shop?
Getting pretty hard to do things mechanically when folks keep walking away from BNSF. When will BNSF wake up a fill positions instead of abolish jobs and require more with less
If the carrier agrees to something without concessions then it’s probably not good. Less Carmen IMO.
Lay off Katie Farmer, she can work train service out of Hobart and patch tie down trains from here to Barstow and Needles.
Why in Sam heck does we have to work 6 day a week in a row, and don't get 48 hours off and this railroad gets a ways with HOS violations. That is why this union, doesn't get support when it comes to it.
Starting Apr 3 machinists and electricians at large shops will be forced to work a 6th day. Looks like FIO is coming home to roost with over 500 units out of service. All technical training for mechanical craft employees put on hold for the... — read more
Layoffs are beginning in Houston.
Katie Farmer has been voted railroader of the year. How does it feel knowing that they see us as little more than filthy peasants? Let's review the facts, shall we? She can work from home. Empowered and diverse. Probably gets unlimited sick... — read more
Read over on UP rr pages they are planning a Dec 9th sick out for days. I plan on a long weekend off duty then a weeks vacation.
Bernie talking about getting those 7 sick days into the contract forced on us. The railroads will regin down he77 on attendance policies in retribution no doubt, making it impossible to take any days off by the 7 forced on them
We can’t figure out why they initially said 24 percent raise and now its 22 and also 13.5 percent vs 14.1 that was promised. Am I missing something here??
https://employees.www.uprr.com/e/news/uponline/221003-You-Said-We-Did-Attendance-Together-Employee.htm UP changes te&y attendance policy . Not sure if UP will let you click on this link.
There are still some optimists here. I wish I had at least a little optimism left, but I don't. What changes would you like to see that you think are realistic to happen?
I read that 700 BNSF train crew people quit because of hi viz attendance policy. Is that true ?
It's a no vote for me on the proposed contract. I support the train crews who need a better working schedule.
If you like the agreement, vote for it. Or if you dislike, maybe want to include a little bit add ons, vote to reject. How hard is it. So sad to see union trash talking and individuals moans about bent over shafted.
Those of you who are surprised that everything here is not ideal, that you are not valued enough, I really don't know what you expected when you applied for a job here!? Those who have been in this industry for a long time know that all railroad... — read more
Congrats, Just by reading this and your poorly decisions upon voting, hoping for the better news or what you want for yourself, you are a number among the barcode of that company owns you, doing what they want you to, you have lost your... — read more
I can wait till 2023
Now for all Class 1's. Once this tu-d contract gets ratified all the other RR's are going to debut their own version
BNSF boasting about 14 percent boost in recent profits..... GREEDY!!
BS ‘policy’ for exempts and probably union: “You received an exceeds/far exceeds (insert random timeframe ago) so we aren’t allowed to give you that this year.” I’ve heard everything from 1-4 years on this for myself and others. This was... — read more
Wonder what will happen if BNSF doesn't address the pay issues and attendance policy. Seems to me that BNSF leadership are ignorant to treating people like human beings. The economic struggle is real for many, but where do we draw the line?
BNSF is so bad to work for they can't even keep police dogs around to work for them lol
Does Katie still work at BNSF after the STB hearings ?
BNSF has fallen very far in the last 2-3 years. The STB hearings were an embarrassment to our industry, especially in listening to BNSF leaders describe it. In talking to people at BNSF, they have lost a lot of key leadership talent especially in... — read more
Just in Houston can't get electricians to come back from furlough. Good job mucking up everyones lives to save a nickel.
