I got hired on everyone told me how the crafts were like family. Turns out not to be true. The back stabbing is something else. You show up every day. Work hard and put in some time. Make some freinds who tell you they got your back. But soon you start to notice some things. The gang leader will rat anyone out to the boss they can to look good. The lazy people when caught will throw everyone else on there shift under the bus. The rules change almost daily from your local union rep to suit that person's freinds. Say anything and you find out more than half of your coworkers are scumbags. Management and shift s—s big time but maybe you coworkers don't have to. The railroad FAMILY should mean something.

To the person who responded to the person who responded to the person who said “keep your head down and shut the f— up....” that was not a very nice thing that say. Now excuse me while I eat my soy burger and testosterone booster while trying to remember the days when my d–k would get hard without rubber bands and 2 popsicle sticks.
Sounds like this is your 1st job working the human race.
To the person who responded to the person who said “ put your head down shut the f— up and go to work”. Quit being a whiny lil b–ch and get off your moms tit and go to ducking work and shut the f— up. Then go home and f— your d—o pretending it’s your boss from work telling you to work harder.
You right but all that solidarity stuff is gone. You got to wonder if it really ever existed in the first place but those old guys used to talk about how they looked out for one another a lot better back in their day.
These union people, the gang leaders are out for themselves. They could care less about you unless you are part of the click.
No mention of the kids huh? What...to sensitive?
To the person who said go to work keep your head down and shut the f— up, I hope you keep your head down as they're escorting you off the property. You ever wonder why your wife cheated on you and your kids hate you?
Go to work put your head down and shut the f— up. Go home with a paycheck to your real friends and family
All families are dysfunctional. Why expect your RR family to be any different?
FMLA will be your best friend at this company.
It's a job! There's no friends or family! Unless you're actually related to someone. I don't get this friends and family stuff. Must be your first job.
Agreed fully. Same at our location.
