Executive Order 9929 by President of the United States Creating an Emergency Board to Investigate a Dispute Between the Akron, Caton & Youngstown Railroad Company and Other Carriers, and Certain of Their Employees
See the Notes section for a list of Executive Orders affected by or related to the issuance of this Executive Order.
Whereas a dispute exists between the Akron, Canton & Youngstown Railroad Company and other carriers designated in the list attached hereto and made a part hereof, and certain of their employees represented by the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and Enginemen, and the Switchmen's Union of North America, labor organizations; and
Whereas this dispute has not heretofore been adjusted under the provisions of the Railway Labor Act, as amended; and
Whereas this dispute, in the judgment of the National Mediation Board, threatens substantially to interrupt interstate commerce to a degree such as to deprive the country of essential transportation service:
Now, Therefore, by virtue of the authority vested in me by section 10 of the Railway Labor Act, as amended (45 U.S.C. 160), I hereby create a board of three members, to be appointed by me, to investigate the said dispute. No member of the said board shall be pecuniarily or otherwise interested in any organization of railway employees or any carrier.
The board shall report its findings to the President with respect to the said dispute within thirty days from the date of this order.
As provided by section 10 of the Railway Labor Act, as amended, from this date and for thirty days after the board has made its report to the President, no change, except by agreement, shall be made by any of the carriers involved or their employees in the conditions out of which the said dispute arose.
