A REVIEW OF THE FEDERAL ROLE IN TRANSPORTATION LABOR PROTECTION

The growing role of the federal government in development of labor protection programs for transportation workers is examined. Attention is given not only to the rationale and nature of these employee support programs, but also to their impact on transportation. To assure the future viability of transportation systems, the government must use the leverage it possesses in creating these guarantees to require labor to make concessions on work rules and operating practices. The possibility of phasing out the job support programs should be considered while emphasizing federal programs aimed at retraining and placing transport workers in other industries.
