Officials with Amtrak said they are working on relocation options for employees affected by the pending closure of the rail service’s Riverside call center on Lindbergh Drive.
The company on Nov. 14 emailed workers saying operations in Riverside would cease Jan. 18.
In the message, Tim Griffin, Amtrak’s executive vice president and chief marketing officer, said operations in Riverside would be consolidated with its reservation center in Philadelphia.
In a statement to the Press-Enterprise, an Amtrak representative answered a few questions regarding potential relocations to Philadelphia:
Q: If employees move to Philadelphia, will the company offer relocation packages?
A: This is currently being negotiated with their union representatives.
Q: If all 500 employees move can Amtrak accommodate that?
Q: Will employees who relocate receive the same pay
A: Yes, same pay and benefits.
Griffin’s memo stated Amtrak “will work with each employee individually to review their options going forward, which may include transferring to Philadelphia or pursuing open Amtrak positions, as their union contract permits.”
