More than 100 former employees sue CSX

More than 100 CSX Corp. (Nasdq: CSX) employees who were fired or suspended for their use of federally-protected medical leave filed suit Tuesday in Maryland.

The suit comes on the heels of a suit that 46 fired employees filed in West Virginia in February, which also alleged CSX disciplined employees for fraud and dishonesty without evidence.

“While CSX employees understand that working on weekends and holidays comes with the territory, they did not anticipate having to work through serious illnesses, miss their children’s births, or choose between caring for their sick loved ones and losing their jobs,” reads the newly filed suit.

Where are the trains in $8.5 billion O'Hare plan?

March 01, 2018    O’Hare is in the news again. The City of Chicago is seeking approval of its $8.5 billion airport expansion plan, which we first told you about in October. The plan would demolish the aging Terminal 2 and replace it with a new building that would link Terminals 1 and 3 and form a “global terminal” to serve American and United. Two new satellite terminals would join the existing mid-field concourse, connected to the main terminals by a tunnel. Terminal 5, currently the international terminal, would be dedicated to Delta and other carriers.

Things seemed to be going well for the City’s plan until American Airlines balked over a last-minute change to 5 gates that they were to share with United. The western suburbs are also wondering what happened to their promised “western access.” This parking and security screening facility would have allowed travelers to enter the airport from the west, then proceed to the terminals on the opposite side of the field by an underground people mover. The latest proposal scales this back to an employee-only parking lot.
