T&E headcount up on most railroads
Total train and engine employment on Class I railroads increased by 7.49 percent in June 2011 versus June 2010, although not all major railroads increased hiring.
T&E headcounts on CSX and Canadian National (U.S. operations) declined in June 2011 versus June 2010, but all other railroads increased their headcounts — primarily through recalls from furlough.
The following table shows the changes in headcount for June 2011 versus June 2010, as reported by the U.S. Surface Transportation Board:
|CLASS I RAILROAD||JUNE 2011||JUNE 2010||+/-|
