Heard they dangled the guarantee to all conductors until age 61 in return for leaving. That is, you could work another job and get guaranteed $52,000 a year until retirement.
Anyone have info on the fatality in Enola? Fatalities and dismemberment used to be few and far between.
Why the he-l would they expand Raleigh? That place is a dump. Just short line that lost cause
Still here after the last hammer blow, but morale is in the toliet. Overhead some management today, supposedly callbacks after the first of the year. PSR goals will be met and the fleet is a state of disrepair.
Are there any job openings at NS in Atlanta? Not necessarily conductor or engineer. TIA
They will set a new goal. The cuts and closures will continue because now the greedy are getting a taste of blood and everyone knows how that goes… keeps them coming back for more and more. I echo this post because I think this is inevitable. I... — read more
Unions have to negotiate one man crews...read on between home page website?
Is starting out as a conductor remotely safe? What are the odds of getting laid off? I figured it’s at least not like mechanical where they shut down your location and that’s it no call backs ever. At least in T&E you will EVENTUALLY be called back... — read more

Here it is, record quarterly results: https://www.railwayage.com/freight/class-i/ns-2q21-record-quarterly-results/ Profits double, but how? Because of employees, of course, who gain almost nothing from doubled profits. I wish I wasn't right. — read more
Now what ??????
can you believe that there is a job called Director of corporate giving. If they wanted to get to 60 ratio the first thing I would do is cut that job.But no...... lets cut a conductor job..., Are these people on crack.
Did any of you guys ever read that forge thing? Its hard to beleive That These brown nosers sink to such lows. Its funney and sickening at the same time. What say you?
I made $400,000 last year just on my guarantee alone. I spent most of my time not being scared of being laid off and eating ice cream. I just wish I could figure out how to get my disability before I’m one of the 86.
Is it possible that there are people who think that some are trying to get others to quit so that they can move up in seniority? I don’t believe people have such hidden motives. C'mon, is it even possible to advise anyone to stay here? NS is a place... — read more
They have no people. They are using regular pools as extraboards all over. Guys are making obscene amounts of money due to their cutting people. So why are there people here claiming they are down and out at NS? Change crafts and go into T&E if you... — read more
I’ve been trying to find a new job for a while now and I’m worried about getting laid off before I find something new. Unfortunately, I don't have any savings, and that’s perhaps the most important thing. Admittedly, at least I don’t have a lot of... — read more
Is it true you have two weeks after being laid off to file for disability? If true what can you go out for and who do you contact? RRB? Any info appreciated.
I'm more scared of NOT being laid off and having to spend who knows how long at this place. Severance will provide me with options that I currently don't have - which is why I'm stuck here. I would be happy to volunteer but something tells me if they... — read more
Sorry to say your next the.man said so sorry cloudy adrian you have no future
When do we get our calendars? 😂
Will there be any cuts? Ever? I doubt it.
I know, it's everywhere, but it seems to me that NS leadership is first when it comes greed in this industry. Could it have gone with fewer cuts? All these cuts, there would not be so many of them if there was no great greed behind every decision... — read more

Everything I'm hearing about the job market for those of us who are no longer on the younger side is making my stress levels go through the roof. There are plenty of jobs available but if you're 50 or over, apparently your chances of landing any of... — read more

Home many total layed off at Juniata today?
Its expected to close Aug 15 according to the man.
Be prepared Brothers and Sisters, it's going to be a rough week at Juniata.
This might be specific to my department, but employees here are not given even the basic respect by the management. We are constantly lied to, gaslighted, demeaned, and intimidated. Even people who have been here for ten years or more are treated... — read more
Squires to hold non agreements accountable for fraternizing with agreement employees. Personal information being exchanged for favors not in line with core values.
