The recent rail strike in the USA has made it difficult for daily passengers to commute in the right manner. In addition to this, various businesses are facing issues because they are not acquiring the required equipment on time. A conversation took place between the rail union and business officials. Even after trying their level best to come up with a suitable solution, no mutual decision was reached.
The fear of difficult public travel and nationwide strike is still keeping businesses and railway officials in a state of worry. Various staff members of the Biden administration have been trying for some negotiations but nothing has happened between the rail companies and unions as of September.
Since no decision was taken so far, Senate Republicans forced all the rail employees to accept Biden’s proposal. However, due to some reasons, the decision was taken back by Sen and no solution was found yet. One of the officials said that he was super proud to block the proposal given by Joe Biden, the President of the USA.
Recently, a tweet from Biden’s account was made. It said that “this is a win for the economy and for the American people.
According to the research, The United States has extensive freight rail networks all over the world. It is not just making $80 billion in the industry but also takes pride in covering 140,000 miles of track. Tanya Penny, director for Excellence in Supply Chain Management said that a railway strike can not only make the government lose money but also make the situation worse. Nobody can imagine what exactly a catastrophic railway strike looks like.
More than 40 percent of people commute by rail. Therefore, if a strike takes place and it continues for a longer period of time, the situation will be worse and there will be a loss of billions of dollars in a blink of an eye, she also adds.
Even though a number of strikes have taken place in the United States, Tanya Penny says that a rail strike can be one that no one could have imagined. “The major problem is we already are suffering from severe supply chain management and having one more added to the list is not easy to digest, she says”.
You cannot switch from a train to a huge truck just because there are no sufficient workers, Perry says. There are so many issues going on when it comes to supply chain management and switching from one mode of transport to another is not an easy task.
Well, now it will be worth the wait to find out if the Biden administration will work wonders for the citizens or if a rail strike takes place for a longer period of time. As of now, the citizens are keenly waiting for an apt solution. However, with no mutual decision between the railway officials and the government, nothing can be done and said.
