Collection material in English
U.S. Emergency Board No. 114 was convened in November of 1955 to settle the dispute engendered by the request of the Cooperating
(Non-operating) Railroad Labor Organizations to the Albany Port District Railroad and other carriers represented by the Eastern,
Western, and Southeastern Carriers' Conference Committees that the latter pay the full cost of hospital, medical and surgical
insurance and that they grant an increase of 25 cents per hour to all existing rates of pay.
After one month's deliberation, the Board recommended a fourteen and one-half cent increase and that the carriers assume and
pay the full cost of the named health insurance.
