A rail strike is coming. Ask Congress to Act TODAY!
It’s Ericka. As you may have seen in the news, our country is facing a rail strike in the next week that would affect all major rail operators, stop all freight trains and deliver a major blow to our economy. What you might not have heard is that rail service is already being cut. That’s why we need Congress to ACT TODAY. Refiners and petrochemical manufacturers have started receiving notice from their freight rail providers that certain shipments and deliveries of essential products and feedstocks will no longer be accepted until the threat of a strike is resolved. Without regular rail service, we could face bottlenecks at our facilities and eventual production cuts that could affect consumers at the pump and at the grocery store.
While many are expecting that Congress will do something to intervene and stop a strike, we’re worried they’re going to wait until the last minute. Congress CANNOT drag its feet.
