Cameras in the Shop.

From: Andrew Sandberg

Gentlemen,

        Tim Moore asked about video cameras a couple of weeks back. I found the attached Public Law Board Award that outlines one arbitrators views on the subject.  click here: Cameras in the shop

        I have found that most if not all CSX shops have cameras in them. Actually they have had them for quite some time. One case I had in Corbin a few years back involved a video camera. In that case one of our members complained about another member walking on top of a locomotive with no fall arrest attached. After hearing the complaint, management reviewed the video from the camera across the shop at least 500 feet away. CSX used still photos made from that video as evidence in the hearing used to terminate that member.

        I wish I had better news to report, hopefully we can use this as a warning if nothing else.
