Executive Order 11852—Creating an Emergency Board to Investigate a Dispute Between the Carriers Represented by the National Railway Labor Conference and Certain of Their Employees
A dispute exists between the carriers represented by the National Railway Labor Conference designated in lists attached hereto and made a part hereof, and certain of its employees represented by the Brotherhood of Railway, Airline, and Steamship Clerks, Freight Handlers, Express and Station Employes, a labor organization;
This dispute has not heretofore been adjusted under the provisions of the Railway Labor Act, as amended; and
This dispute, in the judgment of the National Mediation Board, threatens substantially to interrupt interstate commerce to a degree such as to deprive a section of the country of essential transportation service:
Now, THEREFORE, by virtue of the authority vested in me by Section 10 of the Railway Labor Act, as amended (45 U.S.C. 160), I hereby create a board of three members, to be appointed by me, to investigate this dispute. No member of the board shall be pecuniarily or otherwise interested in any organization of railroad employees or any carrier.
The board shall report its finding to the President with respect to the dispute within 30 days from the date of this order.
As provided by Section 10 of the Railway Labor Act, as amended, from this date and for 30 days after the board has made its report to the President, no change, except by agreement, shall be made by the carriers represented by the National Railway Labor Conference, or by their employees, in the conditions out of which the dispute arose.
