Brotherhood of Maintenance of Way Employees v. United States

No. 681

Argued March 28, 1961

Decided May 1, 1961

366 U.S. 169

Syllabus

As a condition of its approval of any merger of two or more railroads, § 5(2)(f) of the Interstate Commerce Act provides that the Interstate Commerce Commission "shall require a fair and equitable arrangement to protect the interests of the railroad employees affected," including a requirement that, for at least the length of his prior service up to four years, such merger shall not result in any employee's "being in a worse position with respect to" his employment.

Held: this does not require that all employees remain in the employ of the surviving railroad for at least the length of their previous employment up to four years; it is satisfied by a requirement that discharged employees receive adequate compensation benefits. Pp. 366 U. S. 169-179.

189 F. Supp. 942, affirmed.
