Most of the city people I talk to are working right up to their 60 out West and have been since long before the merger. Dispatcher just can not seem to get them back in unless your not liked enough for OT.
Just recently a couple of city men were allowed to jump over to the line board. This was never allowed before. Then it was also not posted for all to bid on either.
I believe the company has always had the flexibility to make service , but the management lacks the smarts to use the tools they have been given.
