Title 3--
The President  
                Executive Order 12950 of February 22, 1995

Establishing an Emergency Board To Investigate a 
                Dispute Between Metro North Commuter Railroad and Its 
                Employees Represented by Certain Labor Organizations

                Disputes exist between Metro North Commuter Railroad 
                and certain of its employees represented by certain 
                labor organizations. The labor organizations involved 
                in these disputes are designated on the attached list, 
                which is made a part of this order.

                The disputes have not heretofore been adjusted under 
                the provisions of the Railway Labor Act, as amended (45 
                U.S.C. 151 et seq.) (the ``Act'').

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

                Section 9A(c) of the Act provides that the President, 
                upon such request, shall appoint an emergency board to 
                investigate and report on the disputes.

                NOW, THEREFORE, by the authority vested in me as 
                President by the Constitution and the laws of the 
                United States of America, including section 9A of the 
                Act, it is hereby ordered as follows:

                    Section 1. Establishment of the Board. There is 
                established effective February 22, 1995, a board of 
                three members to be appointed by the President to 
                investigate these disputes. No member shall be 
                pecuniarily or otherwise interested in any organization 
                of railroad employees or any carrier. The board shall 
                perform its functions subject to the availability of 
                    Sec. 2. Report. The board shall report to the 
                President with respect to the disputes within 30 days 
                of its creation.
                    Sec. 3. Maintaining Conditions. As provided by 
                section 9A(c) of the Act, from the date of the creation 
                of the board and for 120 days thereafter, no change, 
                except by agreement of the parties, shall be made by 
                the carrier or the employees in the conditions out of 
                which the disputes arose.
                    Sec. 4. Records Maintenance. The records and files 
                of the board are records of the Office of the President 
                and upon the board's termination shall be maintained in 
                the physical custody of the National Mediation Board.
                    Sec. 5. Expiration. The board shall terminate upon 
                submission of the report provided for in section 2 of 
                this order.

                    (Presidential Sig.)

                THE WHITE HOUSE,

                    February 22, 1995.
