Compromise Decision
The award of the board while not
granting substantial increases over the
rates on some lines east of Chicago was
virtually a compromise decison between
the engineers and their employers In
granting the award the board stipulated
that all rates higher than the minimum
decided upon should be continued in
force The board further suggested the
creation of Federal and State wage com
missions to exercise functions regarding
labor engaged In work upon public utll
itles analogous to those exercised with
regard to capital by the public service
commissions alread) In existence.
The more important of the awards are
as follows
The minimum wage of H2j for 100 miles
or less for engineers In the passenger
service, with an overtime rate of BO cents
per hour w 1th an average speed of twenty
miles an hour a minimum of M"5 for
engineers in through freight service per

senger service at MJ5 per daj a higher
minimum rate )b established for the roads
parties to the arbitration with the ex
ceptlon of a few Jn awarding the mini
mum through freight rate of H.73 per
day, the board establishes wages for tho
district that measurably approach the
current minimum of roads now paying
the better rates. In making the rate for
local freight service 2a cents higher than
the through, freight service a general
increase of compensation is granted.
Also the effect of the twenty mile per
hour basis of computing overtime in the
passenger service the- rules regarding
final terminal delay, and other changes
In the rules ot service are all more favor
able to the engineers than existing rules
