Back on the Table: Teamsters reject rail deal

We are seeing the first cracks in a rail deal by the Biden Administration in an effort to avoid a devastating strike.

The Teamsters Union has rejected the deal over working conditions and sick leave, which means it is back to the drawing board for them. They have until mid-November to reach a deal.

In the meantime, four unions have ratified the deal, one of which was already successful in renegotiating, and seven are still voting.

Farmers say a strike would crush the agriculture industry at a time when the supply chain is already fractured.
