29 NMB No. 58
CASE NO. R-6871
May 23, 2002
The services of the National Mediation Board (Board) were invoked by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT) on March 21, 2002, to investigate and determine who may represent for the purposes of the Railway Labor Act (RLA), as provided by Section 2, Ninth, thereof, personnel described as "Pilots," employees of USA 3000 Airlines (Carrier).
At the time this application was received, these employees were not represented by any organization or individual.
The Board assigned Investigator Eileen M. Hennessey to investigate.
The investigation disclosed that a dispute existed among the craft or class of Pilots, and by direction of the Board, the Investigator was 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 Hennessey who was assigned to count the ballots in this case.

The Board further finds that the Carrier and employees in this case are, respectively, a Carrier and employees within the meaning of the RLA, as amended; that this Board has jurisdiction over the dispute involved herein; and that the interested parties, as well as the Carrier, were given due notice of the Board's investigation.
NOW, THEREFORE, in accordance with Section 2, Ninth, of the RLA, as amended, and based upon its investigation pursuant thereto, the Board certifies that the IBT has been duly designated and authorized to represent for the purposes of the RLA, as amended, the craft or class of Pilots, employees of USA 3000 Airlines, its successors and assigns.
By direction of the NATIONAL MEDIATION BOARD.
