The railroad industry's service-interruption insurance program is examined in the wake of the Brotherhood of Railway and Airline Clerk's strike against Norfolk and Western Railway, a stoppage which subsequently spread to many other railroads. Over the first 19 years of this program, $132 million was paid to 48 railroads. In the past 25 years, railroads have funded benefits paid under the Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act of $84 million to strikers and those honoring picket lines. The industry's position in maintaining its strike insurance program is detailed.
