House to Consider Two Rail Strike Resolutions

The House is scheduled to take up two resolutions today concerning the potentially impending railroad strike; HJ Res 100 and H Con Res 119. The first would make binding the agreements reached by railroad managements and labor union leaders earlier this year, whether or not the union membership approved those deals. The second would amend the first, effectively adding 7-days paid sick leave to those agreements. A vote on that amendment is believed to be necessary to placate a large number of Democrats that are loath to force union membership to accept labor deals. 

If passed, the Senate would be expected to take up HJ Res 100 next week.
