    Getting the courts to deny workers right to strike is simply a sleazy manipulation by the RR companies. It essentially makes the workers powerless.

    Carriers have been sleazy forever. Nothing to see here.

    Here we go...

    https://www.cnbc.com/2022/11/21/sma...-as-rails-move-closer-to-national-strike.html

    • Two of the largest rail unions diverged on labor deal votes Monday, with SMART-TD rejecting the deal and BLET voting for ratification.
    • But BLET, the engineers’ union, said it will honor the picket line with other unions that voted against the deal.
    • BRS, the signalmen’s union, can strike as soon as Dec. 5 but has the option to move its strike date to Dec. 9, to align with other unions including SMART-TD.

    If the RRs had addressed working conditions, we would not be facing turmoil.

    They clearly have no desire to. They simply want to cut crews to one, if that many.

    They'd rather pay politicians and lawyers than responsible and conscientious crews. What's a few deaths here and there?

    Yup, be careful what you wish for. The gubmint already has its fingers in too much of our daily lives as it is.
