Amtrak Food Workers Protest Potential Outsourcing

Amtrak’s onboard service employees continued to protest last week changes made in food and beverage service, including the potential outsourcing of their jobs.

The employees and their supporters held a rally in front of Boston’s South Station, the latest in a series of demonstrations seeking to bring to public attention changes in meal service and job losses.

Members of Amtrak’s unions fear that the carrier might seek to outsource as many of 1,700 of their members who work in food and beverage jobs.

They called for Amtrak CEO Richard Anderson to be fired, holding up posters of Anderson wearing a top hat with a cartoon-villain mustache drawn on his face.

The union members also gave out fliers of Anderson in a chef hat under the headline, “All aboard the coldcut express!”
