Mechanical employees getting wrote up for getting Covid.
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!
at a local training location on Division. Guess they saw how we work and took that $500 partial incentive and bailed. Good for Them!
Heard it here first: callbacks to begin at Juniata in November. Can't get the numbers they need and the fleet is shot.
If you’re getting a inspection train and you’ve never had one there’s a good chance that line is for sale
I just heard all vacation destinations must be pre approved soon. No covid hot spots !
It's coming by Oct 3rd
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?!!
The NS management has their head in the sand and want to make it the best operating railway ratio in the nation and they could care less about your job OR your safety in the process. As long as they satisfy the shareholders. That is a fact Nicely... — read more
I made $400,000 last year just on my guarantee alone. I spent most of my time not being scared of being laid off and eating ice cream. I just wish I could figure out how to get my disability before I’m one of the 86.
Is it possible that NS is hiring new people with little skills while some employees who are furloughed do not have the opportunity to return? It is the ultimate expression of disrespect for people who might have even returned to this desperate... — read more
Piss poor college bred management is the down fall of Norfolk Southern.
Supervision fleeing the shops. At least 2 high level supervisor's transfer out a third desperately searching for new home.
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
Thats rite , all it takes is one of the crew to pop the covID test and no unloading .better stock up
Anyone else get the feeling that NS thought after laying people off, solely because of greed, people would be rushing back like an old used up girlfriend? Seems like they think more highly of themselves than their former/current employees.
Its expected to close Aug 15 according to the man.
Things are turning around at Bellevue car shop is booming. The locomotives will need quality maintenance get ready for your call backs soon.
Aetna will as of today its in the works
One GM out and others did somewhat of a swap. Any other changes?
Why not offer voluntary layoff time?
Lying Staya at a cookout that all mechanical is in the works to be contracted out
The cost effectiveness of not having an employee with 5 weeks vacation , prior rights or local arbitrary ? Not to mention a younger work force ? Being someone with 27 yrs I’d gladly step aside for someone else to work if we were allowed to collect . ... — read more
Are there any job openings at NS in Atlanta? Not necessarily conductor or engineer. TIA
Anyone have info on the fatality in Enola? Fatalities and dismemberment used to be few and far between.
Heard they dangled the guarantee to all conductors until age 61 in return for leaving. That is, you could work another job and get guaranteed $52,000 a year until retirement.
Still here after the last hammer blow, but morale is in the toliet. Overhead some management today, supposedly callbacks after the first of the year. PSR goals will be met and the fleet is a state of disrepair.
Why the he-l would they expand Raleigh? That place is a dump. Just short line that lost cause
Unions have to negotiate one man crews...read on between home page website?
Now what ??????
They will set a new goal. The cuts and closures will continue because now the greedy are getting a taste of blood and everyone knows how that goes… keeps them coming back for more and more. I echo this post because I think this is inevitable. I... — read more

Is starting out as a conductor remotely safe? What are the odds of getting laid off? I figured it’s at least not like mechanical where they shut down your location and that’s it no call backs ever. At least in T&E you will EVENTUALLY be called back... — read more
Here it is, record quarterly results: https://www.railwayage.com/freight/class-i/ns-2q21-record-quarterly-results/ Profits double, but how? Because of employees, of course, who gain almost nothing from doubled profits. I wish I wasn't right. — read more
