Amtrak CEO Issues Statement Concerning Tentative Railway Labor Agreement

Amtrak’s CEO Stephen Gardner has issued a statement concerning the tentative railway labor agreement: “This tentative agreement will keep our trains moving, stations bustling, and employees proudly serving customers as we move them across this great country, stimulating local economies in more than 500 communities we serve. Railroads play a vital role in the Nation and we thank President Biden, Secretaries Buttigieg, Walsh and Vilsack, the major freight railroads and rail labor unions for their hard work and commitment to get this deal done. Thank you also to our customers for their patience and understanding, and we look forward to welcoming them back on the rails starting today and tomorrow.”

Amtrak Service Update for Friday, Sept. 16: Amtrak has fully restored service and all trains will depart from their origins today. Some customers at intermediate stations may still be impacted. Customers should check train status on or the Amtrak app for more information about their trip.
