    StarStarStarStarStar Former Onboard Service in Los Angeles, California

    You must be 67 or have 33 years of service to get full retirement. I became I'll and received disability retirement after a SEVEN year battle with the Railroad Retirement Board. I got sick ON the train, and they claimed I was "too young" to receive any disability.

    Much of the benefits depends on whether or not you are in a union (agreement) or in management. Either way the company is working to provide the minimal amount of benefits, which are only the ones really required by law or negotiated. Zero sick time, no education assistance, no 401k match for agreement employees, and the pension is only given because it is mandated by law (much of it is self-funded by the individual employee). The healthcare is getting worse and will be horrible at some point. The company says they are trying to align more with other companies in the job market, which ones Walmart? Employees have trouble just getting the required FMLA. The company makes employees jump through hoops to get FMLA, denies applicants many times to make it harder, and even denies FMLA in certain areas of the country because the area/state may not have many employees even though Amtrak employs 20,000 employees. Why do employees want/need FMLA? Because the work is fatiguing and the company does not offer sick time, they also fire employees for electing to take off without pay when they are sick. Imagine being hired and getting no sick/vacation time, but they will give you 1 personal day. LOL, WHAT A JOKE! If you don't like it then talk to your union. Amtrak is not offering anything they don't need to, but finding ways to take everything away based on contract wording. It is a fight to just get the pay you are entitled to.
