No Amtrak Strike

August 25, 1993

Amtrak and MARC trains are scheduled to run as usual today, after a federal judge blocked a planned strike by the United Transportation Union.

U.S. District Judge Stanley Harris signed a temporary restraining order in Washington yesterday at the urging of lawyers representing Amtrak who contended that a strike was illegal.

The walkout, which was called by the union amid a dispute over who should operate trains at maintenance facilities, would have begun at 12:01 a.m. today and shut down all Amtrak passenger service as well as MARC lines. (Article, Page 12A)
