Tell President Biden: Grant railroad workers sick days!

This week, the Senate used a 100-year old law to short-circuit the union bargaining process for railroad workers―and overwhelmingly sided with management, who offered only a single paid sick day when workers asked for seven.

Here’s what’s so frustrating: Every railroad company contracts with the federal government. And a 2015 executive order signed by President Obama required federal contractors to offer at least seven days of paid leave.

So what happened? The executive order excluded rail workers, leaving them to bargain separately. 

President Biden can extend President Obama’s order to ALL federal contractors―including rail workers!
