First Coast Railroad workers join UTU

Workers at Genesee & Wyoming Inc.'s (GWI) First Coast Railroad recently voted in favor of being represented by the United Transportation Union. The employees previously were unrepresented.

A switching railroad, First Coast was acquired by GWI subsidiary Rail Link from CSX Transportation in 2005 and provides switching services at the Port of Fernandina, Fla. The railroad's 31-mile line runs west from the port through Yulee, Fla., and then north to Seals, Ga., where First Coast interchanges with CSXT.
