Railway Labor Act

Jones Day’s Railway Labor Act ("RLA") practice has unparalleled experience in the representation of rail and air carriers in all aspects of labor, employment, and related regulatory issues. Our clients include many of the nation’s major rail and air carriers, as well as regional carriers, commuter rail carriers, airline and railroad service companies, carrier affiliates, and industry associations. We combine legal expertise with extensive and detailed knowledge of the businesses, labor agreements, practices, federal regulators, and unions in both industries. Our lawyers’ experience includes RLA litigation, proceedings before the National Mediation Board ("NMB"), arbitrations, collective bargaining, and Presidential Emergency Boards. We also advise on mergers and other corporate transactions, and defend against whistleblower retaliation and discrimination claims. Unlike firms that focus on only one industry, our work for both airlines and railroads gives us a distinctive perspective and the ability to develop creative solutions for our clients.
