Rail Stoppage Won’t Happen Before Early December

A possible national railroad work stoppage won’t come before early December.

The National Carriers Conference Committee and Brotherhood of Maintenance of Way Employees Division of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters have agreed to extend a cooling off period until Dec. 4. It had been set to expire on Nov. 19.

The maintenance workers union’s members earlier rejected a tentative contract agreement and the two sides have yet to reach another pact.

Members of another union, the Brotherhood of Railway Signalmen, also also voted to reject the tentative agreement, which has been ratified by members of seven other unions.

The two largest railroad labor unions, the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen and the SMART-Transportation Division are still voting on ratification and expected to announce results later this month.
