Canadian National is EVERYTHING "UnAmerican"!
Let me introduce myself, I am a father of 2, a dedicated, devoted employee of Railroading for the past 12 years. I will begin by saying how grateful I am to have been blessed with the opportunity of being a railroad employee. However, I stopped short of obtaining a B.S. Degree in business from a 4yr Accreditted university. I began working a a switchman, conductor and later an Engineer.
But as of late I feel disconnected and isolated from what was once a passion and love of mine, RAILROADING! It truly was, I took pride, honor in the work, often feeling the sense of self worth and accomplishment. I have sacrificed time with family, every weekend, ON CALL, Holidays, Birthdays, limited time in between calls.... I did it with committment.
But from the CEO-down to the middle, under-capacitated, ignorant, dishonest, management I feel completely and utterly disgusted with the total disreguard to the human element. AND NOT JUST THE WORKFORCE OF EMPLOYEES, but the surrounding communities, SAFETY, Industries that rely on service from THE CN who are neglected, Schools that do not understand KIDS CROSSING TRACKS ARE IN DANGER, due to the negligence in training and public awareness of Railroading in tight communities.
I NEVER FELT SO UNSAFE, UNCERTAIN, oR disconnected from something I have given my all to. I pray for resolve, I pray for fairer conditions and Union willing to stand up for Labor Acts, I stand proudly as an American hoping Corporate dollars do not encourage a blind eye. I hope America and the important qualities of the Hard working men of Unions didnt fight for these labor and safe conditions so many years ago be pushed back to late 1800 style barbaric-intimidation style rule.
