We are presented with another case involving the same issues previously decided in Cole v. Seaboard Coast Line R.R. Co., 4 Cir., 1971, 76 LRRM 2529 affirming E.D. Va., 1970, 76 LRRM 25281  and Wheeler v. Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and Enginemen, D.S.C., 1971, 324 F. Supp. 818. The details of this case are set out in the District Court's opinion, Freeman v. Grand Int'l Bhd. of Locomotive Engineers, S.D. Ga., 1973, 375 F. Supp. 81. Concluding that the result ordered by the District Court is correct, we affirm.



The decision of the Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit affirming the District Court was dated February 3, 1971, but has never been officially reported
