An influential railroad workers union on Monday rejected a labor deal brokered by President Biden, raising the threat of a crippling strike before Christmas.

The rejection by the SMART Transportation Division (SMART-TD), a 36,000-member union representing rail conductors, increases the likelihood that Congress will step in to settle the dispute before a strike begins as early as Dec. 5.
