Resistbot Petition: Railroad workers deserve fair pay and time off!

An open letter to the U.S. Congress

Railroad workers deserve fair pay and time off!

931 so far! Help us get to 1,000 signers!

Railroad workers have been on the job without a contract or a pay increase for the last three years -- through a pandemic and in the midst of rising costs on everything from food to gas to housing. Now, railroad workers have rejected a tentative agreement that continues to put the profits of the railroad industry ahead of the rights and wages of its workers. It is imperative that Congress act to prevent a potentially devastating strike. I urge you to improve the tentative agreement by giving railroad workers more paid time off. If nothing is done, a railroad strike could result in empty grocery store shelves and bring our economy to a grinding halt. Right now, railroad workers get no sick leave and are on-call 7 days per week, year round. This isn’t right. I urge you to act immediately to support workers and avert a railroad strike that could disrupt an already fragile economy.
