Leo W. Gerard: Hey, Union-Busters: We'll Give You a Supermajority
Corporate CEOs, union-busting lawyers, and conservative politicians who pander to the rich condemned a National Mediation Board (NMB) Ruling this week. They complained that the NMB gave railway and airline workers the ability to obtain collective bargaining rights through majority-rule elections. That's the type of balloting that occurs under universal democratic rules. Everyone qualified to vote is invited to participate, and the outcome is determined by the majority of those who cast ballots. The anti-worker-rights groups wanted the NMB to retain a different kind of election - one that requires the winner to receive votes ... market research, surveys and trends

STAGGS v. UNION PACIFIC RAILROAD COMPANY
The jury in this personal injury case was confronted with the sole, but difficult, task of segregating the damages that arose from plaintiff Curtis Staggs's preexisting degenerative disc disease from the damages that were caused by a minor traffic accident. On appeal, plaintiff asserts he is entitled to a new trial on damages because the jury award was inadequate and the trial court did not allow him to recover his past medical expenses from both defendants, Union Pacific Railroad Company and Renzenberger, Inc. Plaintiff overlooks the limited scope of appellate review, undervalues the role of the jury, and confuses the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

The Railway Labor Act was enacted in 1926 as a means to keeping the American economy flowing with out the disruption of Railway labor disputes. While, the act was passed to avoid any interruptions to commerce and operations it also was a means of protecting employee's rights to join a union.
