General business conditions, COVID, and PSR continue to reduce North America’s railroad workforce. The latest announcement of layoffs comes from CSX, based in Jacksonville, Fla. And, the layoffs occurred within the management organization.
RT&S contacted CSX spokesperson Sheriee Bowman, who provided the following statement.:
“Last week CSX announced the realignment of responsibilities to better reflect our business needs and to be more productive and efficient. The changes followed a careful review of our management organization that considered what work we should be focused on and whether that work resides in the right place in the organization. The synergies achieved through these realignments unfortunately resulted in the reduction of some management positions across the company. We thank the 86 employees impacted by these changes for their dedicated service and contributions to CSX. Each has been offered a severance package and other support to assist them with the transition.”
