Norfolk Southern has More Layoffs

Approximately 86 employees at the Norfolk Southern locomotive shop in Juniata were laid off Friday morning, according to a company spokesperson.

Norfolk Southern Spokesperson Jeff DeGraff confirmed that 86 active employees in the mechanical department were furloughed as part of a “long-term business plan” that the company says will “best serve the needs of its customers.”

In February of last year, Norfolk Southern had announced that approximately 85 mechanical workers would be transferring to the Altoona shop after the company closed its Roanoke Distribution Center.

Additionally, in 2019, Norfolk Southern laid off close to 150 employees in a five-month span.
