CSX losing all of its mechanical forces to sub contractors

I'm an electrician at NS. We lost our rep, but when they were there they didn't work on the locomotives. We still preformed all of the work. I'm not saying that they aren't looking to get rid of us and hire contractors, but the reps, theirs or GE reps didn't work on the units.
In a lot of NS locomotive shops, there is a Progress Rail field service representative placed there to handle warranty work. Yeah right! I knew it was just a matter of time ,before ProgressRail got their foot in the door to take over all locomotive maintenance and repair. Their representatives seem to know a lot of what is going on at the top.
