No the Cafe attendants on the Downeaster are NexDine employees.Do Amtrak LSA’s work those cafe’s?
If not, why don’t other state funded trains do likewise?
Unfortunately this means their pay scale is at the normal food service level rather than Amtrak union scale, so I usually try to tip generously to make up for this.
I'm not sure how the NNEPRA managed to slip this one through, I imagine the Amtrak unions were not too happy about this precedent.
