THE TASK FORCE APPROACH: CHANGE COMES SLOWLY--BUT IT COMES

The government-industry-labor Task Force on Rail Transportation is in the fourth year of its St. Louis Terminal Project and is now conducting similar activities in Chicago and Houston. From the yard-and-terminal area it will soon expand into line-haul operations with the National Intermodal Demonstration Project. The goals are experimental modification of existing labor agreements and the provision of better service, not necessarily cutting of costs. The conclusion is that problem-solving approaches have evolved which can be used increasingly throughout the industry. It is also proving the labor-management cooperation is possible in improving the quality and efficiency of rail transport.
