STATEMENT ON PRESIDENT BIDEN SIGNING LEGISLATION TO AVERT RAIL SHUTDOWN FROM BBT EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR DANIELLE MELFI
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Building Back Together Executive Director Danielle Melfi released the following statement after President Biden signed legislation to avert a rail shutdown:
“This bipartisan legislative agreement keeps our economy on track, averting a disastrous shutdown that would have hurt American families and brought businesses nationwide to a standstill.
“President Biden is the most pro-union president in history, and has fought for the needs of working families since day one, including by pushing for this very deal to increase rail worker benefits. The Biden-Harris Administration worked alongside union leaders to get this deal done, and will continue to work together moving forward to secure more protections – including paid leave – for working families across the country.”
