The Odds Of A National Railroad Strike Just Got Higher
Another union has rejected the collective bargaining agreement encouraged (some would say strong-armed) by the Biden Regime.
BRS announced Wednesday that 60.57% of voting members opposed ratification, while 39.23% voted in favor.
BRS represents more than 6,000 members affected by the negotiations, which is about 5% of the 115,000 union members involved in the negotiations process.
While the unions rejecting the agreement comprise only a minority of total railroad workers, between unionized labor's inherent reluctance to cross a picket line and the safety considerations of missing critical work crews, they are enough to bring rail transport to a halt.
Effectively, until all unions agree to a contract, no unions have agreed to a contract.
There is no interest rate hike the Federal Reserve can initiate which will counter the spike in consumer price inflation that will follow a rail strike.
