WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Representative Mark Pocan (WI-02), co-founder and co-chair of the Congressional Labor Caucus, released the following statement after President Biden and Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh announced a tentative agreement between railway unions and major rail companies early this morning:
“President Biden is the most pro-worker and pro-union president in our nation’s history. Today’s tentative agreement is proof of that. This is a moment for workers across the country to have their voices heard, and concerns about their working conditions, safety, pay, and sick time addressed.
“I applaud the railway unions, President Biden, Secretary Walsh, and Deputy Secretary Su for securing this agreement that recognizes workers’ needs and ensures the continued operation of our nation’s railways.”
