Railroaders File Damages For Million B&O And Union Are Defendants In Action By Two Engineers BALTIMORE W) — The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad and the Jrotherhood of Locomotive Engineers were named joint defendants •esterday in damage suits totaling : million dollars by two engineers vho say they'were wrongfully ired. ' The. two, Jack'W. Wellman and Valter H. Schaver, of Cumber- and, Md., seek to avoid dismissal rom their jobs, effective today, were discharged because hey quit the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers several years ago, and for a time took up with he rival Union of Railroad Operating Crafts (UROC). The Baltimore and Ohio has a union shop contract with the Jrotherhood of Locomotive Engineers. Engineers must belong to he union. But the union won't reinstate Wellman and Schaver. .The two engineers previously went to court seeking an injunction .gainst their,dismissal, but Federal ribunals said they had no power to get into the dispute that way. The new action, in the form.of a suit for damages, also was filed n .Federal Court here. The railroad and the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers are named joint defendants, with Wellman and Schaver each asking 5200,000 in damages from the railroad and $300,000 from the union. The two men resigned from the motherhood in 1952 to join the UROC. The railroad originally served dismissal notices on them n May of 1953. When their efforts to get an injunction failed, the railroad served new dismissal no- ices which are effective tomorrow. The damage suit charges this is .he result of a conspiracy between he railroad and the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers. Are Veteran Workers Wellman and Schaver contend :he railroad had no right to fire ;hem in the first place as long as .hey belonged to another union which met certain qualifications. They applied for reinstatement in the brotherhood in 1954 and were rejected, they said. The applicable taw, they contend, says they cannot be fired if membership in the "official" union is not available to. them on the same terms as to others. Schaver contends, in addition that he is a member of the Broth erhood of Firemen and Enginemen and therefore entitled to keep his job because it meets the union shop stipulations. Schaver has worked on the rail road for 16 years and has 20 more years to go before he normally would reach retirement.
