A COOPERATIVE PROGRAM OF EXPERIMENTS INVOLVING CHANGES IN RAILROAD OPERATIONS

The report describes the results of the second full year of activities in the St. Louis Terminal of the Missouri Pacific Railroad, where railway labor and management are cooperating in introducing improvements to terminal operations. This is accomplished through a series of experimental changes which are introduced for a specified time period, evaluated on a before and after basis, and if local labor and management agree, are instituted as permanent improvements. The thrust of the experiment has been in the areas of labor agreements, carrier agreements and governmental regulations which for one reason or another are thought to impede the efficient operation of the terminal.
