Congress Votes to Avert Rail Strike Amid Dire Warnings
By KEVIN FREKING and JOSH FUNK Associated Press
WASHINGTON (AP) — Legislation to avert a freight rail strike in the United States is headed to President Joe Biden's desk.
A bill to avoid the strike won final approval Thursday, clearing the Senate in a bipartisan vote.
The bill will bind rail companies and workers to a proposed settlement that was reached between the rail companies and union leaders in September.
That settlement had been rejected by four of the 12 unions involved, creating the possibility of a strike.
The Senate vote was 80-15 and came one day after the House voted to impose the agreement.
Biden has vowed to sign it quickly.
