    How many centers are having mandatory meetings on Thursday?

    Aren't Thursday meetings COO?

    NHS is, anyone else?

    Dunno bout Thur but we have meetings scheduled for Tues...appears a bunch of big wigs will be in town although those meetings aren’t mandatory, that means low turnout...but then again, mandatory meetings also result in low turnout.

    We generally split meetings between 2 days. AM employees on Tuesday, PM on Wednesday. These are running all day on Thursday. If memory serves, that is the format for major announcements...

    Yeah, I don't mean to start any rumors, I'm still suffering PTSD from the Merge days, so meetings freak me out - especially one's with vague MANDATORY MEETINGS - EVERYONE MUST ATTEND titles.

    Honestly, would a second line denoting the topic be that difficult?

Wong will speak to drivers about proper driving on wooden streets.....

    We had a big meeting Tues.

    6 VPs visiting, since they were in the area for a leadership conference in CLT.

    VPs from H/R, Equip. Maint, Regulatory/Legal compliance, International, N/E Region, and Mexico.

    Lots of good general info...

    Perhaps the most interesting to this group: Board approved funding (big number) for safety systems, air disc brakes, new forklifts, captive beam pups, and 200 straight trucks, this year.

    There are a lot of centers affected. Let's post the runs gained/ lost here? It's been 4.5 years since we've had a change of operations at this center, I guess we were overdue.

    FYI - never trust Thursday Mandatory meetings!!!

    We lost 17 night runs, gained 8 day runs. 4 drivers are allowed to follow freight. Everyone's job is safe...

    The changes are said to save over 10 million annually. I can't wait for that bonus check!
