Title 3--
The President
                Executive Order 12899 of February 15, 1994

 

Establishing an Emergency Board To Investigate a 
                Dispute Between The Long Island Rail Road and Certain 
                of Its Employees Represented by the United 
                Transportation Union

                A dispute exists between The Long Island Rail Road and 
                certain of its employees represented by the United 
                Transportation Union.

                The dispute has not heretofore been adjusted under the 
                provisions of the Railway Labor Act, as amended (the 
                ``Act'').

                A first emergency board to investigate the dispute was 
                established by Executive Order No. 12874 on October 20, 
                1993. The emergency board terminated upon issuance of 
                its report and, subsequently, its recommendations were 
                not accepted.

                A party empowered by the Act has requested that the 
                President establish a second emergency board pursuant 
                to section 9A of the Act (45 U.S.C. 159a).

                Section 9A(e) of the Act provides that the President, 
                upon such request, shall appoint a second emergency 
                board to investigate and report on the dispute.

                NOW, THEREFORE, by the authority vested in me by 
                section 9A of the Act, it is hereby ordered as follows:

                Section 1. Establishment of the Board. There is 
                established, effective February 15, 1994, a board of 
                three members to be appointed by the President to 
                investigate this dispute. No member shall be interested 
                pecuniarily or otherwise in any organization of 
                railroad employees or any carrier. The board shall 
                perform its functions subject to the availability of 
                funds.

                Sec. 2. Report. Within 30 days after creation of the 
                board, the parties to the dispute shall submit to the 
                board final offers for settlement of the dispute. 
                Within 30 days after submission of final offers for 
                settlement of the dispute, the board shall submit a 
                report to the President setting forth its selection of 
                the most reasonable offer.

                Sec. 3. Maintaining Conditions. As provided by section 
                9A(h) of the Act, from the time a request to establish 
                a board is made until 60 days after the board makes its 
                report, the parties shall make no changes in the 
                conditions out of which the dispute arose, except by 
                agreement.

                Sec. 4. Expiration. The board shall terminate upon 
                submission of the report provided for in section 2 of 
                this order.

                    (Presidential Sig.)>


                THE WHITE HOUSE,

                    February 15, 1994.
