Railroad workers are represented by 23 standard
unions. By mutual agreement 20 of these unions com
prising about 1,200,000 men, or more than 90 are
working under wages and rules agreed to by them and
the railroads. But leaders of three unions with enly
about 130,000 men, or less'than 10 still refuse, after
more than a year off negotiations, to accept slnjiiar
wage and rules 'agreements. These are even more
favorable than the terms recommended by the Emer
gency Board appointed by the President. . '

- On June 15, 1950, an Emergency Board
appointed by the President under the ,
terms of the Railway Labor Act an Act
largely fathered by the unions themselves '
made its recommendations on certain
wage and working conditions ("roles" in -:
railroad language), which had been in dis- ;
pute between employes and the railroads.
More Than 90 of Employes Accept ' I
Since then, terms eqpal to or better than. '
the Board recommendations have been
accepted by about 1,200,000 railroad tm
ployes more than 90 of the total of all :
workers. They are represented by 20 of v
the 23 standard railroad unions. . ;
Less Tha 10 Refuse
But three unions with about 130,000
men, or less than 10 of the totalhave
refused to accept, even after months of
negotiations. These three unions are the -Brotherhood
of Locomotive Engineers,
the Brotherhood of Locomotive riremen "
and Enginemen, and the Order of Railway.
Conductors. These are three of the so
called "operating?' unions. Already the
highest paid men in the industry, their
leaders demand still further advantages
over other workers.
, In all, there are about 270,000 operating
employes. But not all of them, by any
means, are represented by BLE, BLF&E, ,
or ORC. As a matter of fact, less than '
half 132,000 to be exact are in these
three unions. More than half about
140,000 are in other unions, principally
the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen, f
What makes the whole situation so hard '
.to understand is that these 140,000 op
. crating employes are working under wages ; -and
rules which the leaders of the other
130,000 say they cannot agree to. . ; i
7hat Do theCiTj-oads Offer?

- principles of the Mftmorandtnn Agreement
of December 21. They have been working .
. under this agreement since May 25
What About Wages?
Under the terms of the agreement, yard -engineers,
firemen and conductors would
now be receiving a wage increase of $.34 : 1 ,
an hour ($2.72 a day) and road engineers, -firemen
and conductors would now be re
ceiving an increase of 19S cents an hour
($1.56 per day). Large sums of retroactive
pay have already accrued and if the agree-
ment is carried out, will be paid promptly.
What About "Cost of living" Increases?
The White House Agreement includes an
' "escalator" clause under which wages will
be geared to changes in the Government's
cost-of-living index. Two such increases 1
Aprfland July, 1951 have already been
paid to the 90 of railroad employes cov- . '
ered by signed agreements.
What About the 49-Hour Week?
The White House Agreement calls for the
establishment of the 40-hour week in prin
ciple, for employes in yard service. The
employes can have it any time after Jan
uary 1. 1952, provided the manpower sit-
uation is such that the railroads can get
enough men to perform the work with
reasonable regularity at straight time
rates. If the parties do not agree on the
question of availability of manpower, tjba

. The continued qiHLlT cf the lenders of v
. the three unions has to ao principally with
rules changes, which have already been .
agreed to by the Brotherhood of Railroad
Trainmen, Of these, the principal one
seems to be that having to do with so
called "interdivisional service" runs .
. which take in two or more seniority dis
tricts. . " v.
The union leaders would bar progress ;
and efficiency in the industry, and .better
service to the public, by maintaining a
situation where-they can arbitrarily stop -a
railroad from eateblishing such inter
divisional runs. The carriers propose that
if a railroad wishes to set up an inter-, .
division. 1 run, the railroad ana the unions,
should try to agree on such run and the
conditions which should surround its es
tablishment, and if the railroad and the
unions can't agree, the matter will be sub-' ;
mitted to arbitration. -. ,r ' '
But the three union leaders still refuse, .,
