Reservation Agents to be Offered Relocation Option

Amtrak said it will offer employees in the soon to be closed reservations center in Riverside, California, an opportunity to relocate to another center across the country.

The Riverside reservation center is set to close on Jan. 18, 2019, and Amtrak has said that its operations will be consolidated at another center located in Philadelphia.

An Amtrak spokesman said the carrier is negotiating with union representatives a relocation package.

Although terms of that package remain unsettled, the spokesman said Amtrak can accommodate all of the 500 employees in Riverside if they chose to move and that they will receive the same pay and benefits if they take jobs in Philadelphia.

Amtrak had told the employees earlier this month that it will “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.”
