U.S. President Joe Biden said on Monday he was calling on Congress to intervene to avert a potential rail strike amid a railroad labor standoff that threatens to idle shipments of food and fuel and strand rail travelers.

“Congress has the power to adopt the agreement and prevent a shutdown,” he said in a statement. “Congress should get this bill to my desk well in advance of December 9th so we can avoid disruption.”
