As President Biden signed legislation Friday averting a national rail strike, a group of railroad workers blasted both political parties for what it characterized as “despicable” treatment from both political parties.

The Railroad Workers United coalition took aim at Biden and Democrats for passage of a bill that denied unions “the right to bargain collectively and to freely engage in strike activity if and when the members see fit.” And the coalition, which draws members from multiple unions but does not represent the full array of them, was unhappy with the fate of a second bill, passed by the Democratic-led House but blocked by Republicans in the Senate, that would have added seven days of paid sick leave to the deal imposed upon them.
