Cong. Babin Rejects Biden's Attempt to Pass the Buck to Congress on Rail Strike

 
"Texans in the chemical, energy, construction, and manufacturing sectors, which rely heavily on railroads, I am concerned Congress’s actions today set a dangerous precedent for future labor negotiations.”

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Texas Insider Report) — "Congress has no business dictating the terms of private employment contracts," said Congressman Brian Babin (TX-36,) after voting no on H.J. Res. 100, which would provide for a resolution to the unresolved disputes between certain railroads represented by the National Carriers' Conference Committee of the National Railway Labor Conference and certain of their employees, and on  H. Con. Res. 119. which would provide for a correction in the enrollment of H.J. Res. 100.
 

“Make no mistake, a rail strike would be disastrous to our already spiraling economy,” said Babin. “As the representative of so many Texans in the chemical, energy, construction, and manufacturing sectors, which rely heavily on railroads, I am concerned Congress’s actions today set a dangerous precedent for future labor negotiations.

“The president, who deems himself the ‘union guy,’ should have been able to solve this issue long ago.

"Instead of simply extending the cooling-off period, and allowing railroad labor and management to negotiate their terms, Speaker Pelosi and President Biden chose a heavy-handed, big-government approach that I could not support.,” Babin said.
