Over twenty years ago, the Congress of the United
States passed the Railway Labor Act. It was
hailed by union leaders as a model for the
settlement of labor disputes.
tions in this case would soon result in the com
plete nullification of the Railway Labor Act...."
Obviously the railroads cannot be run efficiently
or economically if the leaders of the unions ignore
agreements or laws.
Provisibns of the Law Which
Are Disregarded
There are five ways under the Railway Labor
Act to settle disputes over the meaning of con
1— Decision by National Railroad Adjustment
2— Decision by System Adjustment Board for
the specific railroad.
3— Decision by arbitration.
4— Decision by neutral referee.
5— Decision by courts.
The Missouri Pacific Railroad has been and is
entirely willing to have these disputes settled in
accordance with the requirements of the Railway
Labor Act. Regardless of this fact, the union
leaders have shut dovgi that railroad.
Innocent Bystanders Suffer
Losses and Hardships
There are about 5,000 engineers, firemen, con
ductors and trainmen on the Missouri Pacific.
They are known as “operating” employes, and
are the most highly paid of all employes on the
nation’s railroads, but their strike action has re
sulted in the loss of work to 22,500 other em
ployee of the Missouri Pacific. In addition, they
have imposed great inconvenience and hardship
upon the public and the communities served by
that railroad.
The Railway Labor Act was designed to pro
tect the public against just such interruptidns of
commerce. 1
If these men will not comply with the provisions
of the law for the settlement of such disputes, then
all thinking Americana must face the fMfltfee*
“What is the next step 7“
« if
The leaders of the Brotherhood of Locomo
tive Engineers, Brotherhood of Looomotive
Firemen and Enginemen, Order of Railway Con
ductors, and the Brotherhood of Railroad Train
men On the Missouri Pacific Railroad have refused
to avail themselves of the peaceful means pro
vided by this Act for settling their disputes. They
insist that they be the sole umpire of their own
x disputes over the meaning of contracts.
There Is No Need For Strikes
With all oi the available methods for the inter*
pretation of contracts, there is no need for a
strike or even a threat of a strike, but the leaders
of these railroad unions have ignored the ordi
nary procedures established by law and insist
upon imposing their own interpretations of their
contracts by means of a strike.
The wheels have stopped rolling on the Mis
souri Pacific. They may stop rolling on other rail
roads at any time. Recently the Wabash Rail
road was forced to discontinue operation for sev
eral days under similar circumstances.
What Are These Strikes About?
These strikes and strike threats are not about
wage rates or hours. They result from disputes
over the meaning of existing contracts. They*
•over ctafezM for a full day's pay for less than a
day's work, or for payments for services per
tained by others who were fully paid for the
wosk done.
President Truman*8 Board
Condemns Strike
There is an established legal method for handling
disputes involving existing written contracts—
just as there is such a method of settling any con
tract dispute which you may have in your dally
The President of the United States appointed a
Fact Finding Board to investigate and adjust the
Missouri Pacific dispute. This Board reported, in
part, as follows:
“... it is with a deep sense of regret that we are
obliged to report the failure of our mission. It
seems inconceivable to ns that a coercive strike
should occur on one of the nation's major trans
portation systems, with all of the losses and
hardships that would follow, in view of the fact
that the Railway Labor Act provides an orderly,
efficient and complete remedy for the fair and
just settlement of the matters in dispute.
Grievances of the character here under discus

occurrence on all railroads that the general
