CSX Transportation, Inc. Key Developments

CSX Transportation, Inc. to Shut Down its Division and Administrative Offices in Huntington, Affecting 121 Workers

Environmental regulations, low natural gas prices and continued decrease in coal rail traffic has forced CSX Transportation Inc. to shut down its division and administrative offices in Huntington, W.Va., impacting 121 of the company's workers.

CSX to Reduce Operations in Erwin, Tennessee

As CSX works to match its resources to a changing business environment, the company announced the reduction of train operations at Erwin, Tennessee. The decision, the result of significantly reduced coal traffic through the region, includes closing a locomotive service center, project shop and car shop, and eliminating switching operations at the Erwin yard. Approximately 300 CSX contract and management employees who work at the facilities and in support roles will be affected. Operations in Erwin primarily served coal trains moving from the Central Appalachian coal fields, and the diminished traffic levels no longer support the activities performed there. Affected employees at Erwin will receive at least 60 days of pay and benefits. Contract employees also may have other benefits available in accordance with their labor agreements. Many furloughed employees will be eligible for jobs in higher-demand areas on CSX's network. Affected management employees will be offered relocation opportunities as they are available, or will be eligible for severance benefits. CSX remains committed to delivering strong service to customers in the region. Remaining coal traffic, as well as merchandise traffic including grain unit trains, will be rerouted efficiently across other parts of the CSX network. Across Tennessee, CSX operates more than 1,500 miles of track, with facilities that include its division headquarters and a major yard in Nashville.
