RT&S has reported previously on BNSF layoffs in Topeka, Kan. This week, the railroad announced the layoff of 8 additional employees. In a statement from BNSF spokesman Ben Wilemon, the railroad said:
“After further evaluation of the on-going structural decline in coal volumes, BNSF also finds it necessary to increase the previously announced reductions in Topeka by eight electricians to offset the decrease in locomotive support requirements. We value our scheduled workforce and it is difficult to make decisions like these that impact our employees and their families. The impacted employees have been notified, and we’re working to connect them with available resources.“
