CSX Brings Back Some Furloughed Cumberland Workers

April 5th, 2019 by WCBC Radio

Although they aren't supplying numbers, CSX has confirmed to WCBC News that the company is bringing back some furloughed workers to its Cumberland operation.

We've heard estimates from 17 to 35 workers have been called back, but the railroad wouldn't confirm those numbers.

There were a number of layoffs at the CSX shops here in 2017 and 2018, and there had been fears that the local operation could eventually be shutdown.

While the hump remains in place here, it has not been used to assemble trains for about two years, and a recent tweet from CSX Social Media noted the switch to flat track switching.
