ouse Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday the House will vote Wednesday on legislation to avert a railroad strike that threatens to add to supply chains problems that have already hurt the U.S. economy.

Pelosi spoke at the White House alongside Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer after Congress’ top two Democrats met with President Biden.

The president on Monday night asked the Democrat-controlled Congress to intervene after his administration, through the Labor Department, failed to broker a deal between unions for freight rail workers and the railroad industry. 

The legislation is focused on a deal tentatively reached in September.

“It’s not everything I would like to see,” she said. “I think we should have paid sick leave.”

Four of the labor unions involved in the negotiations in recent weeks rejected the deal.

“As a proud pro-labor President, I am reluctant to override the ratification procedures and the views of those who voted against the agreement. But in this case – where the economic impact of a shutdown would hurt millions of other working people and families – I believe Congress must use its powers to adopt this deal,” Biden said on Monday.
