CHICAGO, ILLINOIS – SEPTEMBER 13: Workers service the tracks at the Metra/BNSF railroad yard outside of downtown on September 13, 2022 in Chicago, Illinois. Metra, the largest rail service carrying commuters from the suburbs to downtown Chicago, said that it would be forced to suspend service on many of its lines if freight rail workers go on strike. In addition to the Metra disruptions in Chicago, Amtrak announced that it will temporarily cancel three of its long-distance, nationwide routes that run out of Chicago and rely on freight lines, citing a potential strike by the workers. Beginning Tuesday, the Southwest Chief from Chicago to Los Angeles, the California Zephyr from Chicago to San Francisco and the Empire Builder from Chicago to Seattle will be suspended.

With the potential rail strike on the horizon, the local ABC station in Providence had me on for an interview about what is going on with the rail unions and what they are demanding. They were in a hurry and I was about to go to the gym, so yep, I gave this interview my Oregon hat. Go Ducks!
