A truly sad state of affairs.
Scary, even. I think of those psychos who truly believe a person has the "devil" in them and must be killed.
No amount of reason, logic , facts, empirical evidence will change their belief.

The what ifs are what negotiations are all about, unless you don't care about the consequences of your decisions.
They are your "what-ifs" not the railroad workers. Why do you two keep asking me what should be done?

What-ifs are how solutions are reached, not simply agreeing to all-or-nothings.

What would you consider a success by Biden regarding the contract/s?
What is your “acceptable resolution”?
You do know the negotiations are between the rail workers and the freight companies right, not Biden? Biden can step in if these two can't work it out. As I said before, IF Biden has to step in, I hope he doesn't fuck it up.

Nevertheless, Biden & Co have been in the mix for ~3 months and still no deal. Is that "screwing it up?"
It doesn't take that long to negotiate... he is dragging it out on purpose then. Let's go Brandon!!!

OK. So this is one of those times you DO want your words to be interpreted.
Any takers on Biden screwing up the railroad situation?
Means “I hope Biden doesn’t screw it up IF he has to get involved”, even though the administration has already been involved for months, and negotiations are between the Union and the employer.

Thank you for clarifying.

The negotiations are still ongoing between Union and Employer... The Biden administration is not full in.

1) The Biden administration cannot be full in, the railroad workers are not federal employees.
2) 3 months is nothing in union negotiations. Heck, home sales negotiations can take 3 months...

Railroad is considered a necessary business for the country and Congress has powers. So the administration can be full in if they need to be.

No, they cannot.
Read up on the RLA to get a better idea of how it works.

Are you ever going to explain what would be a "screwup" or a "success" by Biden regarding these negotiations? You indicated you don't want a screwup, so you MUST be able to at least tell us what a "screwup" would be.
