Section 60.1 Hearings for purpose of determining classes to be included in term "subordinate official.” (a) It appearing that public hearing was had on March 15, 1920, "for the purpose of determining what classes of officials of carriers shall be included within the term 'subordinate official'," and the Commission having prescribed by regulation duly formulated and issued on March 23, 1920, that the term "subordinate official” shall include employees of the classes and ranks therein designated; and that, pursuant to petitions duly filed a further public hearing was had on October 1, 1920, after which the regulations aforesaid were modified on November 1, 1920, and further modified on November 24, 1920; and that, pursuant to petitions duly filed a further public hearing was had on December 5, 1923, for the purpose of determining with respect to train dispatchers and supervisory agents whether the regulations aforesaid should be modified or supplemented.

*For statutory citation, see note to 8 58.0. **For statutory and source citations, see note to 8 60.1.
60.3 Claim agents. This class shall include claim agents below the rank of assistant general claim agent or chief claim agent. It does not include the so-called “claim investigators." We are of opinion that such employees who are engaged in clerical work are not "officials of carriers."*
60.4 Foreman, supervisors, and road masters. This class shall include road masters with rank and title not higher than division road master, track supervisors, maintenance inspectors, supervisors of bridges and buildings, with rank and title below that of superintendent of bridges and buildings, supervising carpenters with rank below that of superintendent, supervisors of water supply, supervisors and inspectors of signals with rank and title below that of assistant signal engineer, and foremen or supervisors of machinists, boiler makers, blacksmiths, sheet metal workers, electricians, car men, and their helpers and apprentices, with rank and title beneath that of general foreman.*+
60.5 Signal foremen. The work defined as that of an employee or subordinate official, includes the work of signal foremen of the Union Pacific Railroad Company, northwestern district, and brings them within the term "employee."** [As amended Aug. 4, 1936, 218 I.C.C. 142]
60.6 Train dispatchers. This class shall include chief, assistant chief, trick, relief and extra dispatchers, excepting only such chief dispatchers as are actually in charge of dispatchers and telegraphers and in actual control over the movement of trains and related matters, and have substantially the authority of a superintendent with respect to those and other activities. This exception shall apply to not more than one chief dispatcher on any division.**
60.7 Technical engineers. This class shall include civil, mechanical, electrical and other technical engineers inferior in rank to engineers of maintenance of way, chief engineers, and division engineers; engineers of maintenance of way and and other technical engineers. We are of opinion that instrument men, rod men, chain men, designers, draftsmen, computers, tracers, chemists and others engaged in similar engineering or technical work are not "officials of carriers."**
60.8 Yard masters. This class shall include yard masters and assistant yard masters, excepting general yard masters at large and important switching centers where of necessity such general yard masters are vested with responsibilities and authority that stamp them as officials.**
60.9 Storekeepers. This class shall include storekeepers or foremen of stores who are not vested with authority to make purchases. It does not include general storekeepers and assistant general storekeepers.*+
60.10 Division storekeepers. The work defined as that of an employee or subordinate official, includes the work of district and division storekeepers of the Chicago and North Western Railway Company and brings them within the term "employee."*+ [As amended June 23, 1937, 222 I.C.C. 688]

60.11 Supervisory station agents. The duties and responsibilities of supervisory station agents vary so widely that they can not all be consistently designated subordinate officials. This class will be subdivided, therefore, as follows:
(a) Routine duties. Supervisory station agents who, in addition to their supervisory duties, are required to perform work usually performed by telegraphers, telephone operators, ticket sellers, bookkeepers, towermen, levermen, or similar routine duties are employees and, although they may have supervision over one or more other station employees, can not be properly designated subordinate officials.
(b) Supervisory duties. Except those referred to in paragraph (c), supervisory station agents whose duties are wholly supervisory and who are not required to perform routine office work, as outlined, in paragraph (a), are designated as subordinate officials.
(c) Greater responsibilities. Supervisory station agents at large and important stations whose duties are wholly supervisory, and who are of necessity vested with greater responsibilities, duties and authority than the agents hereinbefore classed as subordinate officials, may be designated officials and excluded from the class of subordinate officials.**
60.12 Trunk Line Association. The work defined as that of an employee or subordinate official includes the work of employees of the Trunk Line Association and brings employees performing the work of said association within the term "employee."** [As amended Jan. 24, 1928, 136 I.C.C. 323]
60.13 Subordinate officials; those now recognized; changes. The above definitions include all of the classes of employees whose claims to recognition as "subordinate officials" were presented at the hearings. The list of subordinate officials above prescribed may be enlarged or restricted after due notice and hearing, if and when occasion warrants.**
60.14 Procedure. Until further order, proceedings under the Railway Retirement Act and the Railway Labor Act, as amended, shall be governed by the general rules of practice of the Commission, as far as applicable. Answers shall not be required.* [Minute of the Commission, adopted July 25, 1934]
