Abstract:

Include files on cases brought before the U.S. Railroad Administration, the National Mediation Board and the National Railroad Adjustment Board, as well as files documenting jurisdictional disputes between the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen and other railroad labor unions.

File on the United States Railroad Administration includes transcripts of the proceedings of its Board of Railroad Wages and Working Conditions regarding railroad trainmen (1919) (10 vol).

National Mediation Board (NMB) files include correspondence of A.J. Glover (president, Switchmen's Union of North America (SUNA)), D.F. Rook and E.M. Grey, as well as case briefs re the yardmen representation question on the Aliquippa and Southern Railroad (1948-1949); petition for the re-hearing of the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen (BRT) and Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and Enginemen (BLF & E) vs. Chicago Great Western Railroad, including letters from Thomas Clohessy (vice-president, SUNA), D.B. Robinson (president, BLF & E), and J.P. Farrell (vice-presient, BLF & E); documents relating to a dispute which involved the NMB, the National War Labor Board, and the National Railway Labor Panel regarding the scope of each agency's jurisdiction (1943); statistics on NMB decisions on representational disputes between the railway brotherhoods (1934-1942); BRT recommendations regarding William Leiserson's replacement upon his resignation from the NMB (1944); and transcripts of NMB proceedings and summaries of related cases concerning the handling of representational disputes under the Railway Labor Act (1953). Also scattered documents relating to individual cases involving the BRT.

National Railroad Adjustment Board (NRAB) files include briefs before the NRAB re the request by the Pennsylvania Railroad for discontinuance of selected train and engine service (1934-1940); minutes of meetings of national railroad labor organizations for the purpose of discussing the formation of the NRAB (1938-1939); hearing regarding the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters' right to participate in the selection of a labor member for the Third Division, NRAB (1948-1949); awards, clippings, and correspondence regarding alcohol abuse among operating railroad employees (1940); an article by Whitney entitled "Sabotaging the National Railroad Adjustment Board" (n.d.); numerous fragments of files on cases brought before the Board by the BRT.

Files on representational disputes with other railroad labor unions include a printed report of evidence given in the trial of the BRT before a committee of the Supreme Council of United Orders of Railway Employes (1891); files on a 1961 dispute heard by the Canadian Board of Conciliation between the BRT and the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers over representation of Canadian National Railways and Canadian Pacific workers; files on numerous representational disputes between the BRT and SUNA, including that over the Des Moines Union Railroad, heard by an impartial umpire under the AFL-CIO Internal Disputes Plan (1967); that over the New York Central Railroad (1932-1934); over the Northern Pacific Railway (1940-1947); and the lengthy dispute over the Michigan Central Railroad (1926-1943).

The BRT's disputes with the Order of Railway Conductors and Brakemen (ORC & B) are well documented herein. Included are circular letters regarding representational disputes (ca. 1951-1958) and the alleged policy of the ORC & B of driving a wedge between road and yardmen; also fragments of documents relating to representational disputes on various lines.

Additional documents include wage and rules movements files documenting the 1946 and 1956 movements, scattered documents re U.S. Presidential Emergency Boards, and other materials dealing with dispute resolution in the industry.
