Ridgewood NJ, nearly 5,000 railway workers at the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) voted to reject a tentative contract agreement with railroads and authorize a strike, the union said Wednesday. The vote reveals that rail workers are not satisfied with the agreement, which calls for 24 percent raises and back pay but doesn’t address workers’ demands for more predictable scheduling and the ability to take time off for doctors’ appointments without being penalized. IAM said that it would delay strike action until Sept. 29 at noon to allow union leaders to continue negotiations with railroads.

  1. The purpose of sick time and PDO is to take care of personal matters like doctors appointments. That shouldn’t be done on company time

    1. ……and the workers have no POD or sick time, thus the strike.

  2. This will be the final body blow for Sleepy Joe and his puppeteers.
