Amtrak to furlough nearly 2,000 workers, cut 100 managers
from Progressive Railroading
Amtrak last week announced plans to furlough 1,950 workers and cut 100 management positions due to contracted operations and pinched finances. For several weeks, the railroad conducted a thorough review of its fiscal-year 2021 operating plan and planned service levels, which revealed reduced staffing needs for the next fiscal year, Amtrak officials said in a prepared statement.
