ENGINEERS PUT STRIKE ON HOLD

 ENGINEERS PUT STRIKE ON HOLD
 WASHINGTON, June 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The Brotherhood of Locomotive


Engineers announced late this evening that it would put off any strike action against Amtrak until at least Friday. A strike, which could have begun as early as 12:01 a.m. Wednesday, would mark the climax of nearly four years of unsuccessful negotiations over wages, benefits and work rules.
 In making the announcement, BLE General Chairman Ronald E. Wiggins said, "A strike hurts our members as much as it inconveniences the public. We hope that the four agreements reached today are an indication that Amtrak finally intends to bargain seriously, and we're willing to invest in that hope."
 Although formal talks are scheduled, Wiggins noted that, "The door has been opened since we met last Friday."
