Barnard Iglitzin & Lavitt LLP Railway Labor Act

Railway Labor Act

The main purpose of the Railway Labor Act is to avoid interruption of commerce between states through the prompt disposition between employees and carriers. It also protects employee rights to organize and bargain together.

We represent clients in the full range of matters arising under the Railway Labor Act. We advise clients through the complexities of the RLA and related collective bargaining issues. Our RLA practice has used all forums of dispute resolution, including federal and state court litigation and boards of arbitration in both "rights" and "interests" disputes. The combination of our experience, expertise, and knowledge allows us to find effective solutions to labor issues that arise in industries affected by the RLA.
