Update on Railroad Union Negotiations or Strike
11-22-22, Guardian -- Ole Joe Biden asks US Congress to block railroad strike that could ‘devastate economy’ ... The potential strike comes after long-running negotiations reached an impasse and both sides agreeing to a cooling-off period that ends December 9, 2022. The USA Congress has the power to impose contract terms on the workers. Congress could force the negotiations to continue into the new year. Four rail unions that represent more than half of the 115,000 workers in the industry have rejected the deals that Biden helped broker before the original strike deadline in September. Eight other unions have approved their five-year deals with the railroads and are in the process of getting back pay for their workers for the 24% raises that are retroactive to 2020... More here

9-13-22, IEN.COM -- OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — On 9-11-22, the heads of the nation's two largest rail unions said that the freight railroads' move to begin delaying some shipments ahead of this week's looming strike deadline is only an attempt to get shippers to increase the pressure on Congress to intervene and block a work stoppage by imposing a contract on workers ... The railroad trade group said there's no way trucks can pick up the slack if the railroads stop moving because roughly 467,000 additional trucks a day would be needed to handle all the cargo trains haul and there is already a shortage of truck drivers.

9-10-22, Hal Turner -- Major freight railroads, in a bid to apply pressure on unions and USA Congress, say a strike that could come after a key deadline passes on 9-15-22; it would cost the economy more than $2 billion a day. [..] Ole Joe Biden's Presidential Emergency Board recommended a five-year deal, retroactive to 2020, that includes 24% raises and $5,000 in bonuses. But it wants unions to take their concerns about attendance policies, paid leave and expenses to arbitration or to negotiate separately with the railroads. Unions say their workloads have become unbearable after railroads eliminated nearly one-third of their work forces over the past six years. [..] Between this railroad strike, and a pending strike by United Parcel Service (UPS) Drivers (Story Here), the nation could find 95% of its Supply Chain crippled. If you need to buy something which would be shipped by either of these methods, you'd better order it right now to get delivery before any strike begins. More here from CNN
