                Executive Order 13711 of November 12, 2015

                
Establishing an Emergency Board To Investigate 
                Disputes Between New Jersey Transit Rail and Certain of 
                Its Employees Represented by Certain Labor 
                Organizations

                Disputes exist between the New Jersey Transit Rail and 
                certain of its employees represented by certain labor 
                organizations. The labor organizations involved in 
                these disputes are designated on the attached list, 
                which is made part of this order.

                The disputes have not heretofore been adjusted under 
                the provisions of the Railway Labor Act, as amended, 45 
                U.S.C. 151-188 (RLA).

                A first emergency board to investigate and report on 
                these disputes was established on July 16, 2015, by 
                Executive Order 13700 of July 15, 2015. The emergency 
                board terminated upon issuance of its report. 
                Subsequently, its recommendations were not accepted by 
                the parties.

                A party empowered by the RLA has requested that the 
                President establish a second emergency board pursuant 
                to section 9A of the RLA (45 U.S.C. 159a).

                Section 9A(e) of the RLA provides that the President, 
                upon such request, shall appoint a second emergency 
                board to investigate and report on the disputes.

                NOW, THEREFORE, by the authority vested in me as 
                President by the Constitution and the laws of the 
                United States, including section 9A of the RLA, it is 
                hereby ordered as follows:

                Section 1. Establishment of Emergency Board (Board). 
                There is established, effective 12:01 a.m. eastern 
                standard time on November 13, 2015, a Board of three 
                members to be appointed by the President to investigate 
                and report on these disputes. No member shall be 
                pecuniarily or otherwise interested in any organization 
                of employees or any carrier. The Board shall perform 
                its functions subject to the availability of funds.

                Sec. 2. Report. Within 30 days after the creation of 
                the Board, the parties to the disputes shall submit to 
                the Board final offers for settlement of the disputes. 
                Within 30 days after the submission of final offers for 
                settlement of the disputes, the Board shall submit a 
                report to the President setting forth its selection of 
                the most reasonable offer.

                Sec. 3. Maintaining Conditions. As provided by section 
                9A(h) of the Act, from the time a request to establish 
                a second emergency board is made until 60 days after 
                the Board submits its report to the President, the 
                parties to the controversy shall make no change in the 
                conditions out of which the disputes arose except by 
                agreement of the parties.

                Sec. 4. Records Maintenance. The records and files of 
                the Board are records of the Office of the President 
                and upon the Board's termination shall be maintained in 
                the physical custody of the National Mediation Board.
