Collection material in English
U.S. Emergency Board No. 133 was appointed in 1960 to settle a dispute between certain carriers represented by the New York Harbor Carriers' Conference Committee and labor organizations which were members of the Railroad Marine Harbor Council.
The dispute began with various labor unions proposing changes in and additions to existing agreements under Section 6 of the Railway Labor Act. The unions took the position that they should not be compared to or treated as railroad employees but should have the same consideration as seamen. This was rejected by the Board.
The Board also dealt with the substance of the demands regarding wages, welfare benefits, and improved holiday and vacation benefits. It recommended a two percent base increase, elimination of the cost-of-living escalator, broadened the category of employee eligible for holiday pay, and provided for a sixty day notice regarding the elimination of a position.
Consist of carrier exhibits.
The exhibits deal with general wage increases (1937-1960) for railroad non-operating employees and railroad marine employees; general wage increases (1939-1960); retirement, and unemployment and sickness benefits in the railroad industry.
