Thread regarding BNSF Railway layoffs

That is reasonable to expect

They can't afford to lose any more workers ... especially in the mechanical department. They are going to have a tough time this winter with their deferred maintenance program and skeleton crews. I will hold out and see if they fire me. I've got a few other jobs lined up just in case.

I agree with the poster. It would be logical for the BNSF to try in every way to prevent the loss of employees because we are very understaffed, however, there has not been much common sense around here for a long time, right?

For what it's worth... The management at our shop let it slip that we can lose 20% more in addition to what we've already lost and still be ok.

Wrong they still got fat they can trim. They will be implementing 1 man moves for mechanical 1 man crews for transportation and force when needed. You can lead a horse to water then shove a fire hose in its mouth.

As long as their jobs are safe, they don't give a sh-t.

Obviously they don't care. The bean counters already crunched the numbers. How much does it cost to let a train sit in the departure yard for hours waiting for power to come from the shop? How much does it cost when that loaded car at the RIP track accumulates extra dwell? The math says they are willing to let guys walk.

They will do as they're told. $14,000 fine per non-compliant employee. You think the railroad loves you? Cares about you? That you aren't expendable? Please. It's about money. Once you start to cost them dollars they'll gladly show you the door, and guess what? Every other decent paying company will require it too, so where are you going to go? 7-11?
