Local 1460 President Amy Griffin spent May 31 and June 1 on the ground talking to members, letting them know about Amtrak President Richard Anderson’s plans to cut dining car service from the Lake Shore Limited and Capitol Limited lines, beginning June 1.
Griffin was joined by Unite Here General Chair Dwayne Bateman, who stressed the importance of standing strong together in this battle. These cuts won’t only affect dining car employees, this is an assault on all working families.
