                Executive Order 13060 of August 21, 1997

                
Establishing an Emergency Board To Investigate 
                Disputes Between Amtrak and its Employees Represented 
                by the Brotherhood of Maintenance of Way Employes

                Disputes exist between Amtrak and its employees 
                represented by the Brotherhood of Maintenance of Way 
                Employes.

                These 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'').

                In the judgement of the National Mediation Board, these 
                disputes threaten substantially to interrupt interstate 
                commerce to a degree that would deprive a section of 
                the country of essential transportation service.

                NOW, THEREFORE, by the authority vested in me as 
                President by the Constitution and the laws of the 
                United States; including section 10 of the Act (45 
                U.S.C. 160), it is hereby ordered as follows:

                Section 1. Establishment of Emergency Board 
                (``Board''). There is established, effective August 21, 
                1997, 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 railroad 
                carrier. The Board shall perform its functions subject 
                to the availability of funds.

                Sec. 2. Report. The Board shall report to the President 
                with respect to these disputes within 30 days of its 
                creation.

                Sec. 3. Maintaining Conditions. As provided by section 
                10 of the Act, from the date of the creation of the 
                Board and for 30 days after the Board has submitted its 
                report to the President, no change in the conditions 
                out of which the disputes arose shall be made by the 
                parties to the controversy, except by agreement of the 
                parties.

                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 the 
                submission of the report provided for in sections 2 and 
                3 of this order.

                    (Presidential Sig.)

                THE WHITE HOUSE,

                    August 21, 1997.
