Airline and Railroad Labor and Employment Law: A Comprehensive Analysis

This annual course of study emphasizes the Railway Labor Act (RLA), the Federal law that regulates unionization of airlines and railroads; and the rules and regulations of the National Mediation Board, the agency with primary responsibility for enforcement of the RLA. After a discussion of the statutory framework of the RLA and the function and workings of the Board, the course examines organizational issues, election campaigns, collective bargaining, mediation, status quo rules, strikes and other work stoppages, emergency boards, and dispute resolution (through mediation, arbitration, and judicial review). The course also considers the rights of individual employees with respect to both carriers and unions – the role of employment, civil rights, disability, workforce safety, and environmental laws in the airline and railroad industries. Finally, the course discusses emerging issues affecting employment in the air and rail industries. These include: the effect of post-September 11 regulatory developments; union participation in the management and ownership of carriers; the domestic and international antitrust implications of alliances between carriers, including code sharing; the international extraterritorial application of U.S. employment laws; and increased regulatory activity.
