Menendez Applauds Deal For Amtrak Workers

Workers had been without a contract since 1999

Washington - Today, Amtrak and nine labor unions representing its workers reached an agreement to more fairly compensate the workers and to avoid a strike at the end of the month. Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) released the following statement:


"This is an important development for Amtrak workers who were without a fair deal since the last millennium, and it's a big relief for the hundreds of thousands of commuters in our state who know just how important it is to keep the trains running. The men and women who keep the system working have long deserved a deal and have endured a lot, and I am happy that they finally have gotten it done."
