Railway Labor Act
RLA

Definition:
The Railway Labor Act of 1926 (RLA) regulates labor relations in the railway and airlines industries, guaranteeing workers in these industries the right to form a union and bargain collectively. The RLA severely controls the timing and right to strike. Also, bargaining units under the RLA are usually nationwide, making it more difficult for workers to form a union.
