14 Sep STRIKE: Railroad workers planning a potential strike for better benefits. Featuring: James Poindexter
As soon as this Friday, railroad workers throughout the United States are planning a potential strike after union negotiations have dragged on for more than 3 years. The negotiations pertain largely to employee benefits, and if a deal is not reached by the end of September 15th, then the union will authorize a strike that economic experts say will exasperate already existing supply chain issues.

News4Jax reported on the story and reached out to James Poindexter for comment on the ongoing negotiations. Read the whole story here.
