AGENCY: ACTION: The National Mediation Board (NMB) invites comments on its proposal to the information collection request as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. DATES: Interested persons are invited to submit comments on or before July 3, 2017. SUMMARY: Section 3506 of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (U.S.C. Chapter 35) requires that the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) provide interested Federal agencies and the public an early opportunity to comment on information collection requests. OMB may amend or waive the requirement for public consultation to the extent that public participation in the approval process would defeat the purpose of the information collection, violate State or Federal law, or substantially interfere with any agency’s ability to perform its statutory obligations. The Director, Office of Administration, publishes that notice containing proposed information collection requests prior to submission of these requests to OMB. Each proposed information collection contains the following: (1) Type of review requested, e.g. new, revision extension, existing or reinstatement; (2) Title; (3) Summary of the collection; (4) Description of the need for, and proposed use of, the information; (5) Respondents and frequency of collection; and (6) Reporting and/or SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\03MYN1.SGM 03MYN1 20638 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 84 / Wednesday, May 3, 2017 / Notices Record keeping burden.

Abstract: When a dispute arises among a carrier’s employees as to who will be their bargaining representative, the National Mediation Board (NMB) is required by Section 2, Ninth, to investigate the dispute, to determine who is the authorized representative, if any, and to certify such representative. The NMB’s duties do not arise until its services have been invoked by a party to the dispute. The Railway Labor Act is silent as to how the invocation of a representation dispute is to be accomplished and the NMB has not promulgated regulations requiring any specific vehicle. Nonetheless, 29 CFR 1203.2, provides that applications for the services of the NMB under Section 2, Ninth, to investigate representation disputes may be made on printed forms secured from the NMB’s Office of Legal Affairs or on the Internet at http:// www.nmb.gov/representation/ rapply.html. The application requires the following information: the name of the carrier involved; the name or description of the craft or class involved; the name of the petitioning organization or individual; the name of the organization currently representing VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:29 May 02, 2017 Jkt 241001 the employees, if any; the names of any other organizations or representatives involved in the dispute; and the estimated number of employees in the craft or class involved. This basic information is essential in providing the NMB with the details of the dispute so that it can determine what resources will be required to conduct an investigation. 2. The application form provides necessary information to the NMB so that it can determine the amount of staff and resources required to conduct an investigation and fulfill its statutory responsibilities. Without this information, the NMB would have to delay the commencement of the investigation, which is contrary to the intent of the Railway Labor Act. 3. There is no improved technological method for obtaining this information. The burden on the parties is minimal in completing the ‘‘Application for Investigation of Representation Dispute.’’ 4. There is no duplication in obtaining this information. 5. Rarely are representation elections conducted for small businesses. Carriers/employers are not permitted to request our services regarding representation investigations. The labor organizations, which are the typical requesters, are national in scope and would not qualify as small businesses. Even in situations where the invocation comes from a small labor organization, we believe the burden in completing the application form is minimal and that no reduction in burden could be made. 6. The NMB is required by Section 2, Ninth, to investigate the dispute, to determine who is the authorized representative, if any, and to certify such representative. The NMB has no ability to control the frequency, technical, or legal obstacles, which would reduce the burden. 7. The information requested by the NMB is consistent with the general information collection guidelines of CFR 1320.6. The NMB has no ability to control the data provided or timing of the invocation. The burden on the parties is minimal in completing the ‘‘Application for Investigation of Representation Dispute.’’ 8. No payments or gifts have been provided by the NMB to any respondents of the form. 9. There are no questions of a sensitive nature on the form. 10. The total time burden on respondents is 17.00 hours annually— this is the time required to collect information. After consulting with a sample of people involved with the collection of this information, the time PO 00000 Frm 00080 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 to complete this information collection is estimated to average 15 minutes per response, including gathering the data needed and completion and review of the information. Number of respondents per year 68 Estimated time per respondent 15 minutes Total Burden hours per year 17 (68 × .25) 11. The total collection and mail cost burden on respondents is estimated at $615.40 annually ($582.08 time cost burden + $33.32 mail cost burden.) a. The respondents will not incur any capital costs or start up costs for this collection. b. Cost burden on respondents— detail: The total time burden annual cost is $582.08 Time Burden Basis: The total hourly burden per year, upon respondents, is 17 Staff cost = $582.08 $34.24 per hour—based on mid level clerical salary $34.24 × 17 hours per year = $582.08 We are estimating that a mid-level clerical person, with an average salary of $34.24 per hour, will be completing the ‘‘Application for Investigation of Representation Dispute’’ form. The total burden is estimated at 17 hours, therefore, the total time burden cost is estimated at $582.08 per year. The total annual mailing cost to respondents is $33.32 Number of applications mailed by Respondents per year 68 Total estimated cost $33.32 (68 × .49 stamp) The collection of this information is not mandatory; it is a voluntary request from airline and railroad carrier employees seeking to invoke an investigation of a representation dispute. After consulting with a sample of people involved with the collection of this information, the time to complete this information collection is estimated to average 15 minutes per response, including gathering the data needed and completion and review of the information. However, the estimated hour burden costs of the respondents may vary due to the complexity of the specific question in dispute. The revision of the form requiring a new application for every craft or class will have little effect on the number of application submitted. In 2012 and 2013, no applications were filed that included a request for representation services for more than one craft or class. The application form is available from the NMB’s Office of Legal Affairs and is also available on the Internet at http:// www.nmb.gov/representation/ rapply.html E:\FR\FM\03MYN1.SGM 03MYN1 nlaroche on DSK30NT082PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 84 / Wednesday, May 3, 2017 / Notices 12.

to who will be their bargaining representative, the National Mediation 
Board (NMB) is required by Section 2, Ninth, to investigate the 
dispute, to determine who is the authorized representative, if any, and

services have been invoked by a party to the dispute. The Railway Labor 
Act is silent as to how the invocation of a representation dispute is 
to be accomplished and the NMB has not promulgated regulations 
requiring any specific vehicle. Nonetheless, 29 CFR 1203.2, provides 
that applications for the services of the NMB under Section 2, Ninth, 
to investigate representation disputes may be made on printed forms 
secured from the NMB's Office of Legal Affairs or on the Internet at 
http://www.nmb.gov/representation/rapply.html. The application requires 
the following information: the name of the carrier involved; the name 
or description of the craft or class involved; the name of the 
petitioning organization or individual; the name of the organization 
currently representing the employees, if any; the names of any other 
organizations or representatives involved in the dispute; and the 
estimated number of employees in the craft or class involved. This 
basic information is essential in providing the NMB with the details of 
the dispute so that it can determine what resources will be required to 
conduct an investigation.
    2. The application form provides necessary information to the NMB 
so that it can determine the amount of staff and resources required to 
conduct an investigation and fulfill its statutory responsibilities. 
Without this information, the NMB would have to delay the commencement 
of the investigation, which is contrary to the intent of the Railway 
Labor Act.
    3. There is no improved technological method for obtaining this

    4. There is no duplication in obtaining this information.
    5. Rarely are representation elections conducted for small 
businesses. Carriers/employers are not permitted to request our 
services regarding representation investigations. The labor 
organizations, which are the typical requesters, are national in scope 
and would not qualify as small businesses. Even in situations where the 
invocation comes from a small labor organization, we believe the burden 
in completing the application form is minimal and that no reduction in 
burden could be made.
    6. The NMB is required by Section 2, Ninth, to investigate the 
dispute, to determine who is the authorized representative, if any, and 
to certify such representative. The NMB has no ability to control the 
frequency, technical, or legal obstacles, which would reduce the 
burden.
    7. The information requested by the NMB is consistent with the 
general information collection guidelines of CFR 1320.6. The NMB has no 
ability to control the data provided or timing of the invocation. The 
burden on the parties is minimal in completing the ``Application for 
Investigation of Representation Dispute.''
    8. No payments or gifts have been provided by the NMB to any

    9. There are no questions of a sensitive nature on the form.
    10. The total time burden on respondents is 17.00 hours annually--
this is the time required to collect information. After consulting with

the time to complete this information collection is estimated to

    11. The total collection and mail cost burden on respondents is 
estimated at $615.40 annually ($582.08 time cost burden + $33.32 mail 
cost burden.)
    a. The respondents will not incur any capital costs or start up 
costs for this collection.
    b. Cost burden on respondents--detail:
    The total time burden annual cost is $582.08
    Time Burden Basis: The total hourly burden per year, upon 
respondents, is 17
    Staff cost = $582.08
    $34.24 per hour--based on mid level clerical salary
    $34.24 x 17 hours per year = $582.08
    We are estimating that a mid-level clerical person, with an average 
salary of $34.24 per hour, will be completing the ``Application for 
Investigation of Representation Dispute'' form. The total burden is 
estimated at 17 hours, therefore, the total time burden cost is 
estimated at $582.08 per year.
