U.S. freight railroads are reducing their services after two of the country’s largest rail unions failed to agree on a new contract.

The railroads began notifying customers about the service cuts. The Association of American Railroads confirmed in a statement last week that six Class I freight railroads will begin to take steps to “manage and secure” shipments of some hazardous or sensitive materials.

Other freight customers may also experience delayed or suspended service, the railroad association said, adding that talks with the remaining unions will continue.
