N&W To Furlough 28 More Friday

The layoff of 28 more Roanoke employes was announced yesterday by
the Norfolk and Western Railway.
The employes - all workers in the locomotive department of the
east end shops - will be furloughed at the close of business Friday.
They were given notice yesterday.
Over 500 Roanoke employes have now been laid off since Nov. 15 by the N&W.
A continued decline in business is the reason for the layoffs, a
company spokesman said.
