Major US Railroads, Union Labor Seek Biden Intervention Amid Rail Shutdown Concerns

What's next? The president ordering the railroads unions to get back to work or nationalizing the railroad system after the supply line shock of a shutdown? I would be getting ready for shortages real soon if this can't be solved.

When it rains it's pours.


Also unprecedented is a release from mediation in an election year, setting up a possible nationwide rail shutdown just weeks prior to November congressional elections. As Congress traditionally acts to end national rail shutdowns through legislation imposing a third-party settlement of wage, benefits and work rules disputes, lawmakers are loathe to cast what are politically problematic votes just ahead of constituents heading to the polls.
