MAIN VOLUME INFORMATION
For representation disputes, major disputes, statutory disputes, and collective bargaining
Meticulously researched and written by leading practitioners, The Railway Labor Act helps characterize the nature of union-management disputes and identifies how to pursue party interests. Incorporating the perspectives of management, union, and neutrals into one authoritative text, and with references to more than 1,200 cases, the text of the RLA, and the National Mediation Board (NMB) Rules and Manual, The Railway Labor Act is the definitive resource in this field.
Its comprehensive coverage includes the statutory rights and obligations that exist when employees do not have a collective bargaining representative; the process of obtaining representation rights under the RLA; the distinction between, and the resolution of, major and minor disputes once a collective bargaining relationship has been established; the collective bargaining process under the RLA; the extent of the RLA’s status quo obligations and its limitations on the exercise of economic self-help and changes to terms and conditions of employment; and the relationship among the RLA and other federal and state statutes, regulations, and common law causes of action.
