Railway Labor Act (RLA)

The Railway Labor Act governs labor relations for business in both the railroad or airline industries. It was implemented in 1926 and was extended to cover the airline industry in 1936. While many of the laws and regulations under the Railway Labor Act are comparable to the National Labor Relations Act, which governs labor relations in other industries, the RLA is enforced by the National Mediation Board and has rules specifically relating to the railroad and airline industries.
