NS Furloughs Shop Workers in Altoona

Seventeen mechanical workers at Norfolk Southern’s Juniata Locomotive Shop in Altoona, Pennsylvania, have been furloughed.

This included 10 carmen, six boilermakers, and one laborer.

Earlier news reports had indicated that NS planned to furlough mechanical workers at multiple locations in the NS system.

At the time NS described the job cuts as being made “to align our operations with the current economy.”

NS has not said how many workers it planned to furlough or give the locations where job cuts were being planned.
