In the Matter of the
REPRESENTATION OF EMPLOYEES
28 NMB No. 26
CASE NO. R-6770
The services of the National Mediation Board were invoked by the Transmeridian Pilot Committee (TPC) on September 6, 2000, to investigate and determine who may represent for the purposes of the Railway Labor Act, as provided by Section 2, Ninth, thereof, personnel described as "Pilots," employees of Transmeridian Airlines.
At the time this application was received, these employees were not represented by any organization or individual.
The Board assigned Investigators Sean J. Rogers and Denise C. Hedges to investigate.
The investigation disclosed that a dispute existed among the craft or class of Pilots, and by direction of the Board, the Investigators were instructed to conduct an election by secret ballot to determine the employees' representation choice.
The following is the result of the election as reported by Investigator Hedges who was assigned to count the ballots in this case.

NOW, THEREFORE, in accordance with Section 2, Ninth, of the Railway Labor Act, as amended, and based upon its investigation pursuant thereto, the National Mediation Board certifies that the Transmeridian Pilot Committee has been duly designated and authorized to represent for the purposes of the Railway Labor Act, as amended, the craft or class of Pilots, employees of Transmeridian Airlines, its successors and assigns.
By direction of the NATIONAL MEDIATION BOARD.
