We are hearing up in Altoona that Squires and Ferrell were caught g–ing each other in a closet in the Goode building in Atlanta. The specifics are unknown but all we hear is it was frightening for the cleaning lady and messes were made in the floor.
It’s pretty much a disaster. Everyone is wise to NS playbook, the furloughed guys aren’t coming back. Supposedly in Toledo only 3 of 90 came back the grapevine says. Care to share your stories about your areas? No one wants to come back only to be... — read more

Why can't we in mechanical just come to work and do a day's work without being harassed, threatened, and made to feel worthless all the time? Is it like this everywhere or just at my location?
