This week, Briahna speaks to railworker
Ross Grooters & Washington Post labor
reporter Lauren Gurley about the status of the
railworker negotiations over their leave policy. Are workers likely
to strike? Is the tentative agreement that averted a strike over a
week ago reflective of what railworkers are likely to settle for?
Will they join a strike wave that could hobble the economy and
force more progressive labor policies than we've seen in
generations? How do rail workers view the Biden administration's
role in the negotiations, and how can non-union members support
rail workers? All this and more on an episode so important, we
didn't want to paywall it.
