Thread regarding Norfolk Southern Corp. layoffs

10k transfer bonus Carmen

10k to move your family and life to a yard that's terribly short staffed because the company cut to the bone to maximize short term profits. Now the local workers are sick of forced OT with Monday and Tuesday off and are finding other jobs as well. What could possibly go wrong? All for spare change in the companies eyes.

What points are they offering?

I remember when they offered that bonus to go to Linwood a few years back and then shut the point down.

I can't for the life of me figure out why any of the unions would agree to a "go team"teams". It creates and keeps an incentive to furlough. I've seen more than one occasion where a person will get in trouble at an unfamiliar location on a go team. The risk is not worth it.

They have attempted to call back laid off employees but they've found jobs where you work 4 10s or at least have one weekend day off weekly for comparable pay..

Needless go say they turned down the call back.

Well they keep offering that Carman Go Team thar no one wants to do so I'm thinking this is true. Why not just call back the laid off employees to the short staffed yards. Some bean counter created that scheme of "car dwell time" as a way to punish supervision so they don't have to pay a bonus unless they meet the goal on the cars. They have 18 hours from the time it hits the shop status til its finished.
