Wage Disputes in Railroads

Wage Disputes in Railroads

The wage disputes over the years reflect the feeling of the workers that their wage adjustments have not been commensurate with those in other industries, and that they have been subjected to national guidelines that tend to be lower than those for industries in which wages are negotiated on a local level and the workers are not enjoined by law from striking.

Railroad workers, despite guarantees under the Railway Labor Act of 1926, as amended, have effectively been thwarted from striking by congressional intervention and because of alleged dangers to the nation from such a course.
