THE ECONOMIC COST IMPACT OF THE LABOR PROTECTION PROVISIONS OF SECTION 13(C) OF THE URBAN MASS TRANSPORTATION ACT OF 1964. PART ONE: EXECUTIVE SUMMARY, DESCRIPTION OF STUDY METHODOLOGY, ANALYSIS AND CONCLUSIONS

This study identifies, describes, and attempts to estimate kinds of costs (with particular focus on costs imposed on management) that might occur as a result of Section 13(C). The first part of the study used a mail questionnaire to estimate the frequency and size of all 13(C) cash payments made to transit employees during the years 1964-1975. The second part of the study consisted of an evaluation of the probable size and extent of (1) increased wage and fringe benefit costs in takeover situations, (2) redundant worker costs, (3) uncertainty added to the planning process, (4) costs of delays in signing 13(C) agreements and (5) negotiation, arbitration, litigation, and record keeping costs. Information for this part of the study was obtained by conducting personal interviews with management and labor officials of 13 transit systems.
