This question might sound simple and naive, but when you look at the whole business it all comes down to to that. Last time I checked railroad was still the most effective and the cheapest means of transport. I mean, we had tougher times in the... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Norfolk Southern Corp.
Carman furloughed at Bellevue
Farrells walk through of Juniata produced very positive feedback with the potential of a majority of work transferring to JLS as soon as his review of all under performing divisions are complete.
Farrell and some two other fellas toured RLS, RDC and possibly SCX today. RLS showed pretty well, no one caught standing around. Had some positive things to say about the shop
Just announced Conway Hump to close, switching to flat track switching. Major cuts to both mechanical and transportation
This week seems longer than most due to stress of the unknown. Hopefully we will all have an idea about what is going on at Juniata by Friday.
So long “brother” we’ll miss your jokes and friendly attitude, until the hearings of course. RLS will miss you. Well, some of us.
Many layoffs around our beloved company today. King Farrell is bathing in the blood!
I know that I don’t stand alone in being tired of all the rumors, in fact quite a few are just sick of hearing them daily. When is NS going to actually sack up & let us know what’s really going on? If they’re going to furlough a bunch more of us... — read more
Last rumor was Conway was suppose to get 5 trains back from Bellevue. Rumor is also 20% job cuts at Conway Engine House. No official report if either rumor is true and we probably will not hear the real truth from the company. The company was... — read more
Hear big things are happening at Juanita. Who’s getting laid off? Craft or non-agreements?
Any chance somebody can make my day (week, month) and tell me we are done with layoffs? At least for a week, if nothing else. I need to relax for a bit and get some sleep.
How long have furloughs lasted in the past?
Seems like the layoffs are done in the crafts....Now it's Managements turn.
To new beginnings! Cheers.
All the Geeps will be auctioned off. NS new operating principles are that each major terminal have a 4 axle unit to switch customers that don’t have the trackage for 6 axle engines. That's the word on the street.
Linwood yard will stop humping in September 2019
I see alot of unhappiness, fear, and hate in this forum. The hard working bashing the lazy for being worthless, the lazy bashing the hard working and labeling them as s— a$$e$, craft bashing management for everything they do, management writing... — read more
As if it’s not low enough let’s take away ALL weekend jobs. Management don’t get it keep treating us all like slaves and think that will make us work harder. Pretty sad I that a guy with 12 years in and the best he can hold is an off shift with... — read more

It was just announced in Elkhart that more furloughs are going to happen today (supposedly not here) because the company is placing more units in storage.
It was told to us this morning that we would be getting everyone back that was laid off and that we were to get increased work from shops mentioned above. Saw that POS PF today on his phone hiding out in his usual spot. Daddy can’t protect you for... — read more
