Creating an Emergency Board to Investigate a Dispute Betweent the Carriers Represented by the Eastern Carriers' Conference Committee, the Western Carriers' Conference Committee, and the Southeastern Carriers' Conference Committee, and Certain of Their Employees

WHEREAS a dispute exists between the carriers represented by the Eastern Carriers' Conference Committee, the Western Carriers' Conference Committee, and the Southeastern Carriers' Conference Committee, and certain of their employees represented by the Order of Railway Conductors and the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen, 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 the carriers represented by the Eastern Carriers' Conference Committee, the Western Carriers' Conference Committee, or the Southeastern Carriers' Conference Committee, or their employees in the conditions out of which the said dispute arose.
