Senate votes against more rail negotiations, turns to bill that would avert strike
The U.S. Senate on Thursday afternoon voted against an amendment from Republican senators that aimed to deliver a cooling-off period so talks between rail companies and their workers could continue. The chamber now is slated to vote on a measure that would require rail companies to provide workers with seven days of paid sick leave per year. It's also planning to act on a separate bill that would impose a deal on workers to block a railroad strike.
