Railroad Strike Could Cripple National Supply Chain Sept. 15

Railroad Strike Could Cripple National Supply Chain Sept. 15

Major freight railroads, in a bid to apply pressure on unions and Congress, say a strike that could come after a key deadline passes next week would cost the economy more than $2 billion a day and disrupt deliveries of all kinds of goods and passenger traffic nationwide.

The Association of American Railroads trade group on Thursday issued a report estimating the dire consequences of a strike. Their report came a day after Labor Secretary Marty Walsh took part in talks in a bid to hammer out an agreement.

A strike or lockout won’t be allowed until next Friday at the soonest under the federal law that governs railroad negotiations.

Five of the 12 unions involved that together represent some 115,000 workers have announced tentative agreements covering over 21,000 workers based on a set of recommendations that a special panel appointed by President Joe Biden made last month. But several key unions are holding out in the hope that the railroads will agree to go beyond those recommendations and address some of their concerns about working conditions.

The Presidential Emergency Board recommended a five-year deal, retroactive to 2020, that includes 24% raises and $5,000 in bonuses. But it wants unions to take their concerns about attendance policies, paid leave and expenses to arbitration or to negotiate separately with the railroads. Unions say their workloads have become unbearable after railroads eliminated nearly one-third of their workforces over the past six years.

The railroad trade group said a strike would idle some 7,000 freight trains a day run by CSX, Union Pacific, BNSF, Norfolk Southern, Kansas City Southern and other railroads and disrupt passenger operations nationwide because Amtrak and half of all commuter rail systems rely at least partly on tracks owned by the freight railroads.

The AAR also said it would be impossible for trucks to pick up the slack if railroads shut down because roughly 467,000 additional trucks a day would be needed to handle all the freight railroads deliver, and there is already a shortage of trucks and drivers.

AAR CEO Ian Jefferies said the unions should accept the recommendations of the Presidential Emergency Board because they would deliver the biggest raises in nearly 50 years and they represent a compromise.

“Should negotiations fail and result in a work stoppage, Congress must act to implement the PEB recommendations,” Jefferies said.

A Labor Department spokesman confirmed that Walsh took part in the talks Wednesday. If this contract dispute does fall to Congress to resolve, lawmakers might be forced to make some difficult decisions in an election year.

A coalition of 31 large agricultural groups sent a letter to Congress Thursday urging lawmakers to be prepared to intervene and block a strike if the two sides can’t reach an agreement before next Friday’s deadline. They say they are already dealing with delayed deliveries because railroads are shorthanded, and the problems would get much worse in a strike even if it were brief.

“Most freight railroads currently lack extra capacity to make up for down time,” the agricultural groups said in their letter. “Thus, a sizable portion of freight backlogged due to a stoppage may never be made up leading to less production from rail-dependent businesses to the detriment of producers and consumers.”

Between this railroad strike, and a pending strike by United Parcel Service (UPS) Drivers (Story Here), the nation could find 95% of its Supply Chain, crippled.   If you need to buy something which would be shipped by either of these methods, you'd better order it right now to get delivery before any strike begins.

Everybody should read the Albert Pike letter to his 2nd in command.This is all planned,has been comming towards us for a very long time,none of what's happening is just by simple chance.The people in charge are not idiots who would be kicked from the P and C committe.The people who have charge of us are under orders.What we see happening around us is the stuff that is agreed upon (ages and ages in advance) by the participants of groups such as is getting very late now in the grand scheme of things.

I really hope this is true. If there is a Jihad please Jesus our Lord and Savior let them try it in the South, because it's been centuries since anyone has even tried to challenge us here on American soil. We've armed ourselves with half of the firearms in existence on the entire planet, and honed our sniper skills in the woods wearing camouflage siting in complete silence for days to shoot animals with one shot from hundreds of yards away. Just say the words Allāhu ʾakbar and let us welcome you to the United States of America.

The Zionists were careful to point out that they were protecting the Islamic holy sites in when the Dome gets smoked and the temple mount cleared so that the Red Heifer can be sacrificed for the purification of a fake priesthood to oversee the erection of the third temple, They will point to Iran as the ones who destroyed their own Mosque. Neat trick! let's see if this goes down before Passover evening Monday Apr 22.

Would Iran NUKING Izrael be the best thing for PEACE & pacifying the Jihadi's? NOT that I support this of course but it would be entertaining to see the antisemitic Genocidal AshkeNAZI ZIONAZI scum get their comeuppance! What IF Iran was our best 'FRENEMY' by NUKING Israel*??? *Officially PLEASE DON'T

Let’s not forget something. As much as some people hate Israel, they seem to totally ignore truths they’ve known for years.

First, Biden is and always has been a lying piece of crap. He is s probably the MOST corrupt politician in American history. His crimes in Ukraine and other countries are longer than my arm. You all know that!

Yet, blinded by the hatred for Israel (which no doubt comes from a background in the Catholic Church), you will think Biden, Sunak and the other western leaders are right, honest and doing justice??!!!!

Just look at how they acted with Ukraine and Russia. They are criminal elites who are trying to run the world.

To me, the very fact that they are against Israel makes me very suspicious of their motives.

I’ll agree the world stage is a mess. One minute the West is against Russia China and Iran. The next, they are trying to protect Iran from little tiny Israel??

What the eff is going on?? I know the Enemy of mankind hopes to somehow rule the world from the Middle East - most likely Jerusalem. I’m talking the devil through his meat puppet the Anti Christ. He will probably try to not all the Jews out of Israel and put his followers there in their place.

The Bible is clear that this won’t last (if he’s able to pull it off). Jesus the Messiah is absolutely coming g back to Earth and HE will reign for 1000 years over the entire world. That can’t be changed.

There is NO WAY that Biden, obummer and Hitlery (rumors are they are all working together) can get anything right. If you take their side,
you will lose.

This is exactly what the Jews did in Rome when they were allowed into positions of power: they let in the Vandals and the Visigoths who laid siege to the city.

Rome peaked at a population of one million and six years their population was 17 thousand.

I find it hard to believe that the Western Leaders BROUGHT military aged men in our country, armed them, gave them Obama phones, and didn’t think they were going to unleash Jihad on Americans. OF COURSE THEY DID.

It’s textbook.

But…our wicked leaders made miscalculations:
1. They had no idea the western world was going to wake up to the lies of the Khazarian Mafia.
Without carte-blanche sympathy for Israel, they have a huge problem.
This even causes problems for Brandon’s re-election theft. It’s going to be a harder sell, now.
2. They had grand plans for Islamic false flags. No one will believe ANYTHING they say now. They’ve lost all credibility. No matter what they try to sell: Terror, war, pandemic, famine, the whole world will blame the GloboHomos/Neocon Cabal, run by the Khazarian Mafia.

How this plays out here won't be good, too bad we are all scattered, I hope what amount of wolf repellent we have makes some difference, it just looks like we are living the Alamo once again, nationwide, am counting on that 91st Psalm, which was written by a Jew. Please Hal, don't bunch em all in the same barrel, this trend to blame everything on one people seems to be what some want to happen, it is an old ploy used for thousands of years, I guess it does work, but that don't make it right, the motive behind it is to kill us all, and a controversy to that will be settled to perfection soon by one who is worthy to do so, I know I am not.

Quoting :
2 Chronicles 19-2 " Shouldest you help the Ungodly, And love those that hate the Lord Therefore is A Curse upon thee, From the LORD.

This refers to the Jehoshaphat, the King of Judah aligning himself with Ahab, the evil King of Israel (the northern Kingdom). Not a non Jew.

Not so Hal. All of these powers and principalities are temple constructs serving the same controllers. Western governments let unchecked immigration happen for a number of reasons, one of which you have specified. This was by design; not policy myopia as you assert. This war is being jiinned up is also an attack on our way of life, inciting not just terrorism in North America, it will send inflation into the stratosphere if things escalate in the middle east. If you have a dog in this game, you don't understand all of the players at the table and the end game: global totalitarian technocratic control of everyone and everything. They are trying to make things so unbearable that people will beg for this tyranny. This is why we call it a "theatre of war" and an "act of war". It's a big show and they want everyone to pick a side in this theatre of the absurd. This is absolutely horrific what is happening. It's painful to watch humanity be moved like puppets on a string towards total destruction and the enslavement of the survivors in the hellscape NWO. Their plan will fail. Wisdom begins by calling things by their right name: it's a theatre. We need to quit the scripts THEY write for us, quit their theatre and start living in reality.
