Last Friday President Biden signed an Executive Order ahead of a deadline to intervene in labour negotiations between freight rail carriers and their unions.  The Order triggers a “cooling-off” period and establishes a Presidential Emergency Board to help resolve the ongoing dispute. The Board will provide a structure for workers and management to resolve their disagreements and deliver a report recommending how the dispute should be resolved within 30 days of its establishment.
