Retailers Urge Creation of PEB in Labor Talks

The National Retail Federation has joined the list of trade groups urging President Joseph Biden to appoint a Presidential Emergency Board to make recommendations for ending a contract stalemate between railroad labor and management.

Railroad labor unions and management have been negotiating for more than two years for a new contact.

The National Mediation Board oversaw the talks earlier this year, but recently declared the talks to be at impasse and released the parties from further negotiations under Board auspices
