“The stakes have never been higher. Thousands of good paying union jobs are at risk. Immediate action is needed to provide necessary relief for Amtrak and job protection for our members. We are calling on Congress to pass a relief bill that addresses these concerns and we are calling on Amtrak to abandon its plan for these drastic cuts” said President Maratea.
