Railroad workers could get raise recommended presidential board
More than 115,000 railroad workers including some that work on transports that go through the Mountain Empire like CSX and Norfolk Southern are mulling over new contracts.
Negotiations were stalled until a board appointed by President Biden studied the issues and recommended a 24 percent wage increase for workers.
The AP reports that companies are ready to talk but union reps are saying the proposal does not address working conditions.
