NS Recalls 18 Altoona Shop Workers

Eighteen idled Norfolk Southern workers have been recalled at the Juniata Locomotive Shop in Altoona, Pennsylvania.

A news report quoted Bob Kutz, president of the Blair-Bedford Central Labor Council, that NS has brought back eight machinists, four boilermakers, three electricians, two pipefitters, and a carman.

NS had furloughed 86 workers last July and eliminated 14 positions through attrition. The shop now has 318 workers.
