Some of Amtrak’s longest routes have been suspended because some freight-rail workers could go on strike at the end of this week.
According to Amtrak, east and west bound routes between Chicago and Los Angeles, Chicago and Seattle, Chicago and San Francisco, and San Antonio and Los Angeles are all being disrupted.
Although, the negotiations do not include Amtrak or its employees, Amtrak runs most of its trains outside the northeast on tracks operated by the Freight-Rail Industry.
The Biden administration got involved during the summer by getting the sides to hold off on a strike during a 60-day cooling-off period. That period expires at the end of the day Friday.
