Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request
The Acting Director, Office of Administration, invites comments on the proposed information collection requests as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-13, May 22, 1995 and 5 CFR 1320). This notice announces that the NMB has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget a request for clearance of one information collection.
Notice of Proposed Information Collection Requests
The National Mediation Board (NMB) invites comments on its proposal to revise a previously-approved information collection request as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. In December of 2012, in response to amendments to the Railway Labor Act, the NMB published a Final Rule changing the showing of interest requirements for organizations seeking a representation election. As a result, the NMB is revising the Application for Investigation of Representation Dispute to reflect that all applicants must submit the same showing of interest. In addition, the NMB is revising the application by requiring applicants to attest that all of the information submitted is true to the best of the signer's knowledge. The revised application will also only provide space for one craft or class per application, thereby requiring a separate application for each craft or class.
