Rail strike on hold, for now

Rail strike on hold, for now

The potential for a rail strike has been delayed until at least December.

Rail groups and union officials on Wednesday agreed to extend a possible walkout until after Thanksgiving, setting a new deadline for December 4th.

Michigan Farm Bureau’s John Kran tells Brownfield agriculture is too dependent on rail for any disruptions and the cooling of threats is positive news.

“It shows that both sides are willing to give this some more time to try to come up with the best solution—I hope that they can do that,” he says.
