Why does this website keep removing comments?

People say stuff on here all the time and it is pulled down immediately. What gives? One of the comments was saying how much a department was going to miss their division manager and it was pulled down. Well if that was deemed offensive, this site... —  read more

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.

Furloughed Employees Returning

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?

Our union s**k

Its time to give our unions the boot. We all need to form one union for all crafts . We would have more bargaining power. Our unions are in the back pocket of squire and his cronies. This is the only way to solve this. We can still have divisions... —  read more
