Got this in MARC Alerts mail:
To All MARC Riders:
As a result of an ongoing labor dispute between CSX Transportation and its labor unions, CSX has notified MDOT MTA that there is the potential for a labor strike starting the morning of Friday, September 16. Since CSX owns and maintains the Camden and Brunswick lines in addition to dispatching MARC trains, any labor strike would result in the immediate suspension of all MARC Camden and Brunswick Line service until a resolution is reached.
MDOT MTA recommends MARC Camden and Brunswick Line passengers plan for alternate travel options in the event of a strike.
Penn Line service will not be impacted on Friday, September 16, and will operate full service as scheduled.
A list of alternative transit options for Camden and Brunswick Line passengers can be found at www.mta.maryland.gov/marc-csx-strike-options. If there is a strike, riders should note that MTA Commuter Buses listed would honor all MARC tickets during this service disruption. WMATA and RideOn buses always honor MARC weekly and monthly passes and Camden Line tickets are always cross-honored on the Penn Line.
As this situation develops, MARC Train will provide service updates for the Camden and Brunswick Lines. Service alerts will be sent by email, listed on our website (www.mta.maryland.gov), and posted on Facebook www.facebook.com/mtamaryland and Twitter @mtamaryland. Service alerts also will push through to the Advisories feature in the Transit app.
Thank you for riding MARC Train.
