hile President Biden is now prodding Congress to take action to avoid a national railroad strike, he was one of six U.S. senators who voted against ending the railroad strike in 1992.

“It is a difficult decision to oppose this legislation,” then-Sen. Biden said in June 1992. “I am concerned about the serious effects of a continued shutdown of our nation’s rail system on hundreds of companies in Delaware and across the country. But I am also concerned that we are rewarding a concerted decision of the railroads that would have caused fevered expressions of outrage by industry had the unions taken a similar step.”

Biden said at the time that he was “not convinced” that Congress should “act to reward the actions of the railroad companies at this time.”

The purpose of the 1992 resolution was “to provide for a settlement of the railroad labor-management disputes between certain railroads” and their employees. The resolution passed the Senate 87-6.

Biden is currently calling for congressional action to avoid a railroad strike. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the House will take a floor vote on the legislation on Wednesday. She said the bill would reflect the “tentative agreement” from September, which involved the U.S. Labor Department.
