Airline and Railroad Labor and Employment Law: A Comprehensive Analysis--2006

This annual course of study, comprising more than 18 hours of instruction, examines labor relations in the airline and railroad industries, where the governing law is the Railway Labor Act (RLA) rather than the National Labor Relations Act, and the responsible government agency is the National Mediation Board (NMB or Board) rather than the National Labor Relations Board. In addition to looking at labor-management relations, the course looks at the three-cornered relationship among individual employees, their unions, and their employers. For the benefit of those with little or no background in practice under the RLA, the course begins with a brief whirlwind tour of the law and policy of labor relations in the airline and railroad industries. Following this overview, the course examines the function and workings of the Board, organizational issues, election campaigns, collective bargaining, mediation, status quo rules, strikes and other work stoppages, emergency boards, and dispute resolution. The course also considers the rights of individual employees with respect to both carriers and unions: the roles of employment, civil rights, disability, safety, and environmental laws in the airline and railroad industries. Throughout, the course looks at emerging issues affecting employment in the air and rail industries. The two biggest issues are, of course, how security concerns in the post-9/11 world affect these workplaces, and the process and outcomes of reorganizations under Bankruptcy Court supervision. Bankruptcy issues include the extent to which Bankruptcy Courts can modify or terminate collective bargaining agreements, retiree health benefit plans, or pension plans. CL040
