NS isn’t sweating all of those who will be disqualified/fired/quit. They want you gone regardless. They want you to fold and walk away from a long career. Get vaxed? So NS can find a way to furlough or fire you next chance they get? I’m sure... — read more
So as I read these posts … The brothers chomping at the bit for you to quit over the vax so they can make/take that money and seniority is all I need to see … It has proven to me what I’ve always know . What the RR has always been . If some of these... — read more
Any opinions on the Walkout?
Maybe someone out there wants to pay my bills? I mean, if someone is going to pay my bills, then I'll be arguing for months over whether to receive the wax or not. Since I can’t afford to lose my job because of my family, any discussion about... — read more
Bulletin coming out tomorrow the 20th requiring Vax by Dec. 8th. Merry Christmas to you. Bow down and take it or be terminated. Sh-t just got real boys and girls.
This has become absurd…. Despite working without a contract for years . Being a essential employee pre pandemic and having to deal with Precision Railroading. Class 1’s receiving Covid relief yet didn’t sharing a dime of that money . Corporate greed... — read more
Look at the job openings on LinkedIn and other sites. They're in hundreds and the number isn't going down. They've cut too many people and now nobody wants to work here because people have figured out what kind of a dump this is. Just wait and see... — read more
John Deere Nabisco Hollywood Unions Kelloggs Mine Workers And yet BLET and UTU are clueless and toothless....
Vaccine mandated Nov 24th
Why is it that many other Unions get better results than the rail unions? I know a few other places whose unions get contracts negotiated on time, raises, vacations and fringe benefits that would make you salivate. So whats with these chumps at UTU... — read more
Isn't it ironic that an employee who works hard is rewarded with even more work, while one who works slow is spared that extra job? Here I am motivated in every way to work only as little as possible. Bare minimum and that's it! NS is a company of... — read more
Lets be clear I DESPISE UNIONS! You can drink the kool aid on it and claim all the propaganda, but the sold you out. Maybe it was a thing when workers were being ki---d working for 10 cents and hour and force to be slaves for Companies but its a... — read more
everyone is gonna get laid off in a few weeks, the shops are scheduled to close up for good and i feel bad for the people who still work there
Our Dues go to the small few at the top who take payoffs and sell members down river to stretch out their own enrichment. And when the crafts go away they move on to continue their rotten and debased political lifestyles elsewhere. Prime example is... — read more
Devils Advocate You get paid to work a job then work it. Don't cry about having to do "extra work" when they take you off a road train and make you do yard work. Don't cry because you are doing railroading but its in a different seniority districts... — read more
I think I will never leave this joke of a company because I haven't been able to find a decent job for four months. I didn't even count how many applications I sent. The biggest problem was that the competition is huge, many candidates are applying... — read more
Unions begin legal action against Norfolk Southern!
First why post on any media sight the possible intentions of a Labor Union… less is more ? Second it’s best to keep someone’s intentions in you’re back pocket . Posting on a social media sight may seem like a good idea but it’s not … Third I agree... — read more
It’s one thing to work hard, and quite another to be exploited. I feel more like I’m exploited. All management knows is to test the employee limits, how much they can handle. There used to be harder and easier days, but now every day is getting... — read more
Hearing the rumblings and local chairmen are starting to survey the locals on who would support a strike over this forced devotions to conductor from engineer.
Let’s here it? Is it ok for a company to be able to coerce you into a lifetime decision??
Does anyone know anything more about the DMMO in Lynnwood? All I’ve heard about him is that everywhere he goes things don’t turn out for the best.
Got offered a job in Binghamton even though I live in Buffalo. Don't mind the move and its a family trade. Gave me all the bs of how good it is and they don't lay off. Is it worth picking over csx or just the same song and dance?
I'm thinking of becoming a mortician. At least that career has better job security than this place. And frankly, it seems like a funner experience than working here at the moment.
I see that some are even glad that NS is now having a hard time finding new employees and it sounds like they got what they deserved after years of behaving very badly towards employees who were much more professional and much more loyal to this... — read more
People quitting in numbers never before seen in my 20 years. Recently saw a guy quit over a start minor. Said he didn't need the harassment anymore. All the old school managers at the top that still believe you have to have lots of discipline, ... — read more
at a local training location on Division. Guess they saw how we work and took that $500 partial incentive and bailed. Good for Them!
Now the new thing is if you get a road train home and finish your trip too fast they grab you to short turn before you can go home. They just started doing this and it's another kick to the groin!
If you’re getting a inspection train and you’ve never had one there’s a good chance that line is for sale
Heard it here first: callbacks to begin at Juniata in November. Can't get the numbers they need and the fleet is shot.
Mechanical employees getting wrote up for getting Covid.
I just heard all vacation destinations must be pre approved soon. No covid hot spots !
N ever S tupider
That's right, nothing good happened to me in NS. In various ways, they have shown me that they value neither employees nor their work. Still, I blame myself the most for staying here so long and not leaving earlier.......I am almost sure if I was to... — read more
I don’t know about anyone else but I used to senjoy going to work! But now it’s a struggle just to do the bare minimum and fly under the radar as not to get handled?!!
It's coming by Oct 3rd
There was a time when you got furloughed and just played a waiting game to come back. The job meant something, the pay and status meant something. Now we know the game being played, namely workers being used in ponzi scheme to get work out of people... — read more
Supervision fleeing the shops. At least 2 high level supervisor's transfer out a third desperately searching for new home.
