T&E here…With the “raise” and increase in our cost for health insurance, I’m making less now if I have to claim guarantee than I was before the “raise.” Pretty much what we all knew would happen.

What happened to the old guys that got the ax.
Get yer money and run!
Looks like they learned their lesson from last year, shutting down 11p on 24th to 11p on 25th. Guess they learned that running on Xmas would result in every terminal on system laying off sick for a week straight....

Rumor going around that NW and Southern seniority will be merged in the MOW after the new deal is signed. True?
Strike and get what you deserve don't listen to the clouds
I think that in all these years that I have been working here, I have not been more overloaded than I am now. Unfortunately, I have no other option for now, except to try to do the best I can and stay under the radar. It is clear that the goal is... — read more
I work in mechanical and we don’t get told much by our union leadership, therefore we don’t always get details. Can anyone tell me what influenced the engineers to accept the offer? As I said, we are in the dark. Thank you
If the market makes a turn soon, do you think there will be Norfolk Southern layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
Postponed till Dec 4th ? BLE / UTU you already threw the Dem’s a softball . Come on …To every union member looking into what a union objector is …
I heard from some former colleagues that they managed to get higher paid offers in this industry. Some even say that they are now paid significantly more than they were here. However, no one is saying whether and how much more they are overloaded... — read more
MOW doesn't have enough men to keep up anymore and they can't find people to hire.
Projected shipping numbers to be down 41% next month per one of our umpteen hundred VP's
Anyone here working on the project? They should be used everywhere. Very beneficial for noise pollution! "Phantom moves silently as fog." - old jungle saying
Anybody know when we will get our Backpay?
I would recommend anyone who is young get out. There’s no future in the railroad like in the past. Used to be if you were one of the few who were luck enough to get a railroad job you were set for life. Now it’s just another average at best job. Stop... — read more
Gotta watch that bottom line. The shareholders are upset about wages going up. Time to reduce the headcount to break even.
Refer to your local work locations, hilarity ensues.....
Why is it that the mechanical guys get hammered because they ratified and didn't "stick together " with transportation? Where was transportation all the years of work being outsourced? That's right, they were the first ones signing the contract... — read more

Has anyone noticed the heavy handed discipline/beat downs ramping up again, or am I just imagining it.
In the event that Union Members do not accept the latest agreement, the latest agreement will be imposed on the Union Membership overriding any voting or no voting procedure.

BLET and SMART-TD don't have it......why doesn't the Union use that strike fund that never gets touched and hire some of the lawyers the railroad uses....
Railcrews are set to ratify the best contract they ever ratified in over 50 years. Most Union Members say it's a win for everyone. Congratulate Union's for a bargain well done.
Until the railway labor act is changed we will never get a fair contract. Until we unite under ONE union we don’t stand a chance. They supposedly agreed to freeze the H&W contributions at the end of the contract. But the also had the unions sign a... — read more
I voted no on the proposed contract
Has anyone else having difficulty getting a voting ballot or getting no reasonable answers why
That's how I used to think, that somehow we could force those at the top to provide us with better working conditions. At this point, however, I don't believe in miracles anymore. The fact is, they don't care about any of us. Perhaps it's easier... — read more
