Freight Market Alert
September 15, 2022 – We are thrilled to report Rail Carriers and Unions have reached a tentative agreement through 2024. Workers have agreed not to strike until the vote is tallied and the deal is ratified. The deal has had an immediate positive impact. Amtrak is working to restore long-distance trains today, which were canceled earlier in the week to avoid stranding people across the country.
The new deal includes higher wages, annual bonuses, and improved time off policies for union workers. Brokered by Labor Secretary Martin J. Walsh, negotiations lasted 20 hours through the night, including a call in from President Biden to push talks forward. The new agreement avoids a strike and what would have been heavy economic damage to our economy and our industry.
