From carmakers to refiners, industries brace for rail strike


I might Gracia reporting one union rejects a tentative deal days ahead of a rail strike deadline Members of one union have rejected a tentative contract with the largest freight railroads in the U.S. just days ahead of a strike deadline About 4900 members of the international association of machinists and aerospace workers district 19 voted to reject the contract There are 12 unions one with two separate divisions and all must agree to the tentative deals to avert the Friday strike deadline So far 9 unions have agreed to tentative deals Not only would a rail strike disrupt the nation's supply chain but passenger rail would also be impacted because Amtrak and many commuter railroads operate on tracks owned by freight railroads
