Negotiations with Amtrak continue

Amtrak LogoContract talks on Amtrak are continuing, General Chairperson Dirk Sampson reports. 

“As these negotiations are ongoing and sensitive, I am not a liberty to release the details,” he said. 

“My main priority with Amtrak is getting this contract settled,” Sampson said. “Mediation talks are ongoing. Currently, mediation sessions are scheduled for Feb. 13 and 14 and March 20 and 21. We are still trying to resolve a few difficult issues. The negotiation team will continue to press its demands with the assistance and guidance of Assistant President John Previsich.”
