From the U.S. Chamber of Commerce
If an agreement is not reached by the nation’s six largest freight railroads and remaining unions in the next two days, our nation’s railroads will shut down, causing national economic consequences.
Businesses are already seeing delays and suspensions in service as the railroads prepare their networks for a potential strike.
A shutdown of the nation’s rail service would have enormous impacts to the economy, costing more than $2 billion per day. U.S. consumers would be heavily impacted as well.
