ARA Co-Signs Coalition Letter on Rail Labor Dispute

Sep 08 2022

ARA and the undersigned organizations co-signed a letter with the Agricultural Transportation Working Group sent to members of Congress notifying them of the importance to act in the event rail carriers and rail labor cannot come to an agreement.

Rail roads and rail labor have until Sept. 16 to reach an agreement that would prevent a lockout or strike after the Presidential Emergency Board published a proposed settlement Aug. 17. If an agreement is not reached, ARA and the undersigned organizations urge Congress to take action to avoid significant economic damage to U.S. supply chains and further uncertainty for rail customers, such as ag retailers.
