Each year on the occasion of Martin Luther King, Jr., Day, the IAM encourages its members to honor this distinguished civil rights leader’s memory through reflection on his accomplishments. We are inspired by his example to work toward social justice and equality in all aspects of our own lives.


At CSX, we observe Martin Luther King, Jr Day as a National Day of Service. In doing so, we reflect the principles he stood for and the example he set as a person of nonviolent action. Consistent with his legacy, CSX fosters an open and collaborative culture in which employees of all backgrounds are encouraged to develop their capabilities in service to customers, colleagues and members of the community. 

Please note that January 16 is not a CSX holiday. Please make certain to discuss with your supervisor if you plan to take this time as a vacation or flex holiday. This year MLK Day falls on Monday, January 16, and we welcome the opportunity to recommit to the spirit of service.
