Amtrak's Christmas Card
Feb 18, 2009

December 18, 2008 Amtrak Issues a Special Employee Advisory entitled "A Message from President and CEO Joe Boardman”. He writes: "At a meeting with labor leaders last month, I said that it was my intent to deliver the retroactive pay in 2009.” Are you kidding? Could you be more condescending, Mr. Boardman? We have no doubt the remaining 60% of back pay obligations will be paid in 2009. Please refer to the January 18, 2008 Wage and Rule Agreement, Self-Help, Article VI, page 14. Is it any wonder Rail Labor openly protested his appointment?

The Advisory continues "We have an incredibly dedicated workforce. It’s important to me that you know that I value the work you do, and that I will go to Congress for you." Lets see if Mr. Boardman holds these same feelings when we begin to negotiate our next Amtrak contract. We know firsthand the value Amtrak places on our labor.
