With another union rejecting a prior labor deal, businesses are asking Congress and the White House to step in.

A group of more than 300 businesses from various industries penned a letter to President Biden, urging him to step in and get the deal he brokered approved. The President approved a board of arbitrators over the summer to try and resolve the dispute to no avail.

All 12 unions must sign off on the deal to prevent a rail strike by November 19th. Six smaller unions have already signed off on the deal with four others expected to vote in the coming weeks. Two have rejected it.
