THE RAILWAY INDUSTRY: A CASE FOR FINAL OFFER SELECTION ARBITRATION

This paper indicates the potential of economic adversities caused by the railroad industry's labor-management problems. The three significant areas are the inadequacies of the Railway Labor Act, the fragmented unions, and the long-run contractions in railroad physical plant and employment. It is recommended that the Railway Labor Act be abolished and railroads and airlines be covered by an amended Taft-Hartley Act calling for application of "final-offer selection" arbitration.
