IMPACT ON LABOR. RAIL MERGER STUDY. ISSUE PAPER NUMBER 3

Provisions of the Interstate Commerce Act require that merger approvals require a fair and equitable arrangement to protect the interests of involved employees. Chapters I and II explore the issue of labor protection from the standpoints of management and labor respectively. Chapter III explores the role played by the Federal Government. Appendices contain a digest of employee protective provisions of merger cases from 1960 to 1976, copies of relevant statutes and copies of actual agreements. Government's presence in labor protection is generally perceived as having reduced or eliminated the need for one or the other of the involved parties to bargain.
