    (e)    An employee of an acquired transportation system who is transferred to a position with the Administration may not be placed, by reason of the transfer, in any worse position than that which he enjoyed as an employee of the acquired system with respect to workers’ compensation, pension, seniority, wages, sick leave, vacation, health and welfare insurance, or any other benefits.
