Friend at RRB told me NS is discussing an early-out incentive for all agreement employees aged 55 and older with 30 years employment.
Word is, 100 more units stored and the powers that be lay off 2 mechanical employees for every unit stored
You can of course, expect nothing good to come out of the upcoming "Town Hall Meeting" on the 16th.
We were told today we need to step up and work faster. We're already working like crazy and the car counts are high. They need to call some people back. We can't do any more. Forced overtime, lots of people off medical. Wtf
I have been working here as a locomotive electrician for many years and lately I have started to think more seriously about a new job. The only thing that kept me here is that I really love my job as an electrician, so I didn’t even care much if they... — read more

Goons at SCX today
Lots and lots of FRA items being signed off by shops because of lack of manpower! Bosses are doing the work of 20 men from inside the office. No wonder there’s so many derailments. A LCDI is easy on the computer.
I know alot of carmen at smaller yards and outlying points were recently cut off completely with no one left. So whose is doing the work now? Fra repairs, brake tests, set outs etc
Unless you want to get into management you might wanna start cleaning your locker out!
I see Bellevues best electrician old JT still leaves early. You would think after being fired once he would have learned a lesson
