U.S. Railroad Strike Averted as Unions, Companies Reach Tentative Deal

U.S. Railroad Strike Averted as Unions, Companies Reach Tentative Deal

Toronto, September 16, 2022

The following message was issued by the Canadian International Freight Forwarders Association (CIFFA) on Thursday, September 15, 2022:

U.S. Railroad Strike Averted as Unions, Companies Reach Tentative Deal

Major U.S. railroads and unions secured a tentative deal after 20 hours of intense talks brokered by the Biden administration to avert a rail shutdown that could have hit food and fuel supplies nationwide.

The tentative deal now goes to the unions to be voted on.  Even if those votes fail, a rail shutdown that could have happened as soon as midnight Friday has been averted for several weeks due to the standard language included in such a deal.

For more information, please call David Lychek, Director – Ocean & Air Services at (905) 882-4880, ext. 1207.
