AGC continues to urge Congress to impose a tentative labor agreement to head off a possible nationwide rail strike.
AGC continues to urge Congress to impose a tentative labor agreement to head off a possible nationwide rail strike. AGC remains concerned that any work stoppage would result in massive disruptions for the industry and economy. The industry heavily relies upon the rail network for deliveries for materials and any shutdown could exacerbate the supply of construction materials and further inflate the cost of materials.
On Monday, November 28, AGC joined over 400 organizations in a letter urging Congress to take immediate action to block a potential strike. On Wednesday, the House of Representatives passed legislation to execute a labor agreement mirroring the agreement negotiated by the Presidential Emergency Board in August, and the Senate is expected to vote on the agreement this week.
