Grinding to a halt: America braces for national rail strike that'll cost $2 BN per day as Amtrak slashes long-distance routes ahead of walko
Amtrak is canceling trips on several of its routes in preparation for a unprecedented strike by 60,000 railroad workers

The dispute could lead to the first railroad strike in more than three decades - and will likely hamper the country's already entangled supply chain

Starting Tuesday, the passenger rail is suspending service on three routes out of Chicago, going to San Francisco, the Pacific Northwest, and Los Angeles

Amtrak is canceling trips on several of its routes in preparation for a unprecedented strike by 60,000 railroad workers - a dispute that could lead to the first railroad strike in decades and likely hamper the country's already entangled supply chain.

Starting Tuesday, the passenger rail agency is suspending service on three cross-country routes out of Chicago, going to San Francisco, the Pacific Northwest, and Los Angeles, respectively, Amtrak said in a statement Monday evening.

Service will also be disrupted for a route along a portion of one of those routes, the company said - between Los Angeles and San Antonio.

Calling the changes 'initial adjustments' made 'in preparation for a possible freight rail service interruption' later the week, the move from the passenger rail comes as many of America's railroads have already stopped accepting shipments of hazardous and other security-sensitive materials due to the looming threat of a strike Friday.

The cancellations are intended to avoid potential disruptions should tens of thousands of freight railroad workers walk out while the lengthy trips are underway.

The two railroad unions involved in the prospective strike currently in talks with railroad carriers are demanding more quality-of-life provisions be put into a contract for the coming year, covering attendance policies, vacation, and sick days.

A deadline by the unions has been set for Friday for the carriers to meet their demand - or they will strike.

They don't really care whether the truth gets out, because the public no longer knows what's meant by "the truth."

Well, I mean, no one can tell the difference anymore between what's real and what's fake.

Anyway, the point is, I can tell you all of this, right out in the open, because it doesn't matter who knows about it. They won't know whether to believe it or not.-

It'll cripple the country. Possibly usher in the financial collapse.
political correctness is a doctrine.... fostered by a delusional, illogical minority...... and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media; which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

One of the biggest strikes in US history is brewing at UPS. Here's what it means for you.

US Railroads Enact "Contingency Plans," Preparing For Labor Strike As Union Talks Fail

FedEx Ground Contractor Dispute: What Now?

On Sunday, Norfolk Southern released a statement detailing it had "begun enacting its contingency plans for a controlled shut down of our network at 00:01 on Friday, Sept. 16." The railroad said two labor unions are holding out on new contracts, "we still do not have a commitment not to strike and must act accordingly"
