Key railroad union rejects contract as strike looms

One of two of the country’s largest railroad unions said Monday their members voted to reject a new wage deal brokered by the White House, moving closer to a labor strike that could disrupt some supply chains as soon as early December.

The unions representing engineers and conductors, the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen, and SMART Transportation Division were the final two out of the 12 unions reporting the ratification of votes in a protracted labor dispute.
