Thread regarding Norfolk Southern Corp. layoffs

They hire people just to get rid of them

Hiring is not a cheap process for any company. And what happens then? NS spends its resources looking for candidates who would agree to such working conditions and then when they finally find them, they do everything to get these people out of here as soon as possible. What's the point? What kind of management is that?

Because they don't really want to hire they are being pressured to hire by the stb .

Why would they negotiate contracts? We are all just over paid, under worked slackers in their minds. The people that really bring value are the spreadsheet jockeys in Atl.

We have college grads that are engineers in whatever field and non of them ever touch a wrench. When they make a decision and you tell them the pros and cons they say “ I have a degree in such engineering “ hahah I just look at them and say ok boss lets do it your way. When something sort of goes wrong they ask you why you did it that way hahahahahahahah I love it I love it I love it. Oh and to the management that is against your workers in the gangs please think about this. If your shop or yard shuts down and you think NS will keep you well your gonna have to move or lose your job to daaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!! Hahahahahha

I know this has been said quite a few times already, so I'll just repeat what others have said. This is modern railroading 101! EVERY CLASS 1 operates this way. They complain all the time about the cost to train new hires, but actively charge the lower management to find fault in everyone employed. The other thing is the requirements one needs to be considered for a management position. I've always wondered about that, just due to the comprehension and decision making skills the current management possesses. I know of quite a few managers that have college degrees, and are somehow managers in fields that has NOTHING to do with the degree they have. In the end, the management sits around and scratches their a55 constantly wondering why work isn't getting done. It's really not hard to figure out the problems going on. There's so many other situations that could be listed, but there's no point in doing so. Rest your minds, and take great comfort in knowing that the plans they think are great ideas will fail!

I just wish we could convince enough of the people left to leave and crash this company. Will never happen, too many too scared to leave, but boy wouldn’t it be awesome t watch them reap what they sow.

NS will fire you when you don’t go to work and they will fire you when you do go to work. No one wins here

In all fairness the hiring process determines your aptitude to work for NS, but it doesn't determine your ongoing willingness to live up to your aptitude. Thus there will always be a continuous process for weeding out the slackers. That said, NS and the other class 1's are slapping every hard working employee right in the mouth every day that they fail to negotiate contracts in good faith. 3 years without a raise is disgraceful. They should at least be giving cost of living raises while they work through the bargaining process.
