Executive Order 12636 -- Establishment of Emergency Board No. 213 To Investigate a Railroad Labor Dispute
an Emergency Board to Investigate a Dispute Between
the Chicago and North Western Transportation Company and Certain of its
Employees Represented by the United Transportation
A dispute exists between the Chicago and North Western Transportation Company and certain of its employees represented by the United Transportation Union.
The dispute has not heretofore been adjusted under the provisions of the Railway Labor Act, as amended (``the Act'').
This dispute, in the judgment of the National Mediation Board, threatens substantially to interrupt interstate commerce to a degree such as to deprive a section of the country of essential transportation service.
Now, Therefore, by the authority vested in me by Section 10 of the Act, as amended (45 U.S.C. 160), it is hereby ordered as follows:
Section 1. Establishment of
Board. There is established, effective
Sec. 2. Report. The board shall report its finding to the President with respect to the dispute within 30 days from the date of its creation.
Sec. 3. Maintaining Conditions. As provided by Section 10 of the Act, as amended, from the date of the creation of the board and for 30 days after the board has made its report to the President, no change, except by agreement of the parties, shall be made by the Carrier or the employees in the conditions out of which the dispute arose.
Sec. 4. Expiration. The board shall terminate upon the submission of the report provided for in Section 2 of this Order.
The White House,
