ACE to Avert Total Service Suspension
Stockton CA – The San Joaquin Regional Rail Commission (SJRRC) is extremely pleased to hear the news of a tentative agreement being reached between the freight railroad carriers and all of their respective employee unions. However, ACE will still be operating under its previously announced modified service plan for Thursday, September 15, 2022, as a result of the negotiation uncertainty. On Friday, September 16, 2022, ACE will operate its full service. SJRRC will continue to monitor the situation and keep the passengers and community informed.
“Our agency is extremely pleased to hear the news that a tentative agreement has been reached between freight railroad carriers and all of their respective employee unions. As we promised to restore service as quickly as possible, we will be restoring ACE to full-service tomorrow which will be welcome news to our loyal passengers. We greatly appreciate the patience and flexibility of our passengers and partners. We stay committed to keeping you informed as the national collective bargaining process moves forward,” states Stacey Mortensen, SJRRC Executive Director.
