Aug 10, 2020 Washington, DC, August 7 — On August 5, 2020, 12 rail unions whose members and their families are covered by the NRC/UTU Plan and the Railroad Employees National Health and Welfare Plan, filed suit against the nation’s Class I railroad carriers in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia.

The attached chart shows how bargaining works under the Railway Labor Act (RLA). The process prescribed by law for railroads and unions like ours is much different than what is experienced by unions under the National Labor Relations Act. The entire process is designed to avoid disruptions to commerce (whether by strikes or lockouts).
