railway_imageThe RLA regulates labor relations for employees of airlines and railroads. Our expertise in this unique area of law and practice arose from epic battles against Frank Lorenzo’s Continental Airlines in the 1980s, extended to the creation of the world’s largest employee stock ownership plan at United Airlines in the 1990s, and has continued in the deregulation era through the post-millennium airline bankruptcies. Our RLA practice calls upon the firm’s lawyers to represent airline and railroad unions and their members throughout the nation in the federal courts, and before administrative agencies and System Boards of Adjustment. We counsel unions engaged in the often arduous and distinct RLA-defined collective bargaining process monitored by the National Mediation Board, and are familiar with the idiosyncrasies of modern application of a statute enacted prior to the advent of commercial aviation.
