US faces possible rail strike in two weeks after largest union rejects labor deal [From the web]
NEW YORK, November 21, 2022-

The nation’s second-largest rail union, which represents engineers, ratified its own contract. But the failure of the conductors to ratify their own deal is another setback to efforts to avoid a crippling nationwide rail strike.
