Group and RJCRC represent that: (1) RJCD will not connect with any other railroad directly or indirectly controlled by Group or RJCRC; (2) the proposed continuance in control transaction is not part of a series of anticipated transactions that would connect RJCD with any railroad directly or indirectly owned and controlled by Group or RJCRC; and (3) the proposed continuance in control transaction does not involve a Class I rail carrier. Therefore, the transaction is exempt from the prior approval requirements of 49 U.S.C. 11323. See 49 CFR 1180.2(d)(2). Under 49 U.S.C. 10502(g), the Board may not use its exemption authority to relieve a rail carrier of its statutory obligation to protect the interests of its employees. Section 11326(c), however, does not provide for labor protection for transactions under 11324 and 11325 that involve only Class III rail carriers. Accordingly, the Board may not impose labor protective conditions here because all of the carriers involved are Class III carriers. If the notice contains false or misleading information, the exemption is void ab initio. Petitions to revoke the exemption under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) may be filed at any time. The filing of a petition to revoke will not automatically stay the effectiveness of the exemption. Petitions to stay must be filed no later than July 16, 2014 (at least seven days before the exemption becomes effective).
