At least in the NW and Montana Divisions crew cost have to be through the roof. BNSF has changed or canceled numerous agreements over the past few years and the results have not been good for anyone. Maybe BNSF will finally see what they have done, probably not. It's a joke out here.

I am always interested on hearing what the folks on the ground have to say about the operation of BNSF but will you be a little more specific in your points--sometimes operational changes are painful for the employees effected but if the company makes changes according to labor agreements and the results show a positive result for the companies financials the officers keep their job if not officers are brought in to make it profitable and the BNSF had operated profitably for quite a while now
