Norfolk Southern Layoffs

Officials with Norfolk Southern say they’re furloughing fewer than 20 employees at the Juniata Locomotive Shop in Altoona.

Officials say they made the decision to align their operations with the current economy.

“Today, Norfolk Southern informed employees at our Juniata Locomotive Shop of the furlough of fewer than 20 mechanical employees. This announcement is part of overall plans to align our operations with the current economy.

“Furlough decisions are always particularly difficult. We will work with furloughed employees that may have the opportunity to apply for positions, as available, elsewhere on the NS system.

“NS appreciates the hard work and commitment of all the men and women on the Thoroughbred Team and will continue our strong presence in this area.”
