Pennsylvania R. Co. v. Administrator, 360 U.S. 548 (1959)
Pennsylvania R. Co. v. Administrator
Argued March 26, 1959
Decided June 29, 1959
360 U.S. 548
Claiming that, under a collective bargaining agreement entered into between his union and a railroad under the Railway Labor Act of 1934, he was entitled to extra pay for each time he had performed service for his employer on the tracks of another railroad, a locomotive engineer retired from railroad service and brought suit for such additional compensation against his former employer in a Federal District Court.
Held: notwithstanding his retirement from service, the National Railroad Adjustment Board had exclusive primary jurisdiction over this dispute arising under a collective bargaining agreement, and the District Court properly dismissed the complaint. Pp. 360 U. S. 548-554.
258 F.2d 62 reversed, and cause remanded.
