ILLINOIS CENTRAL SYSTEM
Chicago, Auffunt 25. 192.
To the Shopmen of tho Illinois Central System I
Since the leaders of the railway nhopcraftn ordered the members of their or
Kanizationn to strike July 1 against decisions of the United States Railroad Labor
Hoard, constant efforts have been made to find a basis for a just settlement. I
believe you arc familiar with those negotiations and the unsuccessful efforts to
bring about a settlement which have been made by the Labor Board and indi
vidual members of the board, by members of the President's cabinet, by repre
sentatives of various organizations and by the President himself.
The final conference in New York August 23 further demonstrated that the
differences which exist are of such a fundamental nature that they cannot be
composed. We of the Illinois Central System believe there is nothing to be gained
by further negotiations on a question which admits of no compromise. Moreover,
we believe the situation has been unfavorably affected by reports frequently sent
out by leaders of the shopcrafts that a nation-wide settlement was about to be
effected, and that it can serve no good purpose to continue to hold out these false
hopes. While we are deeply interested in the general situation, we believe that
we can accomplish a great deal more for that part of the public served by us, for
, our employes and for ourselves if we concentrate our future efforts largely upon
the conditions on our own railway system.
No one rcgrcti more than we the unfortunate situation of our former employes who gave,
up their positions upon orders from the leaders of their crafts. On June 14, when the strike
vote was being taken, we addressed a letter to ell Illinois Central System shopmen in which wc
appealed to their better judgment and counseled them not to vote In favor of placing- In the
hands of their leaders the power to rail a strike. We were of the opinion then that if thry
placed such a power in the hands of their leaders it would be unrvely exercised and a strike
would be railed, resulting in untold suffering and hardships to the strikers. We had the tntereats
of our shopmen at heart and did not want to face the situation of having to fill their places. We
appreciated that in any emergency which might arise the public welfare demanded that our trains
be kept running.
On July 10, ten days after the strike had been called and some of our shopmen had com-'
plied with the orders of their leaders to desert their posts, we again addressed them. The public
had to be served with transportation and, if our shopmen who left our service were not going
to return to their positions, new men had to be employed to fill the vacancies. We did not
want to employ new men until we were absolutely sure that those who went out would not return.
It therefore became necessary for us to fix a time within which those who left their positions
could return without loss of pension, seniority and other rights. We waited ten days for our
former employes to make up their minds, hoping- all the time that they would return, and after
having waited that long we trnve them another whole week within which they could return with
out loss of any of their rights.
Holding, as we do, that service to the public is our first and highest duty, we could no long-.
er continue a waiting policy and thus run the risk of not being able adequately to take care of
those depending upon this railway system for transportation service.
After having taken every precaution we could consistently take in behalf of the men who
went out, we began employing new men. The men who took the places of those who left our
service hove courageously and efficiently assisted us in rendering to the public an unimpaired
transportation service. We believe they are entitled to very great consideration, not only from
us, but also from our patrons. We submit that no fair-minded person with a correct understanding
of the situation would have us deal unfairly by these men. j
There is no dispute about the right of workmen to leave their positions. Neither can there
be any question about tho right of others to take the places thus made vacant, nor the right of
any man to work when and where he may wish. Those rights are essential to civilization. The
President of the United States has asserted that he will, if necessary, use the full power of the
United States Government to sustain these rights. Neither can there be any question as to the
attitude of the Illinois Central System toward labor organizations. We believe in the principles
of organizations, and we stand ready to work hand in hand with those organizations which will
work with us in serving the public.
From the beginning of this controversy we have felt that the members of the shopcraft or
ganizations were being misled, and it is a matter of deepest regret to us that we were not able
to induce more of our shopmen to guard against iil advised action. We believe that the vast ma- .
jority of our employes in all department, as well as the vast majority of our patrons, feel in
their hearts that the Illinois Central System has dealt fairly by the striking shopmen. In addition
to the letters which we addressed to them, reasoning with them and exhorting them to let their
better judgment prevail, our officers appealed to them personally, worked with them and did
everything they honorably could do to induce them to vote acainst the Drooosed strike: to refuse
to give up their positions after the strike had been called, and. finally, to return to-the service
in time to preserve their pension and seniority rights unimpaired.
We hold no feeling of resentment toward those of our former shopmen who, as a result of
being misled, gave up their positions and the benefits and privileges which they formerly held.
So long as vacancies exist, we shall giva preference to those of our former shopmen who have
not resorted to violence or damaged eompuny property.
However, frankness compels us to make clear that the vacancies are being rapidly filled. Our
mechanical forces are largely depleted at only one of the main shop plants on the Illinois Central
.System. At all of our other shopi our mechanical iorces range all the way from substantial forces
to more than 200 per cent of normal. This disparity has made it necessary for us to transfer
some of our work from the shops having the smallest forces to those having the largest. The total
number of men employed in tho mechanical department of the Illinois Central System on June
SO. the day before the strike, was 13,607. On August 24, after almoat two months of the strike,
there were 12,653 employes in the mechanical department, of whom a very large percentage were
old employes who remained faithful by refusing to strike. Therefore, on August 24 we had only
8o4 fewer employe! in the mechanical department than on the day before the strike.
On July .1, the Labor Board, by resolution, called for the formation of new organizations
to take the plarea of thoae which had refused to abide by the decision! of the board. The fol
lowing is quoted from that resolution:
Wherea. in the future submission of disputes involving rules, wages and grievances of said
classes of employes of the carrier it will be deairable, it not practical necessity for the em
nloyea of each class on each carrier to form some sort of an asiociation or organisation to
function in the renre.entation of laid employe before the Railroad Ubor Roard in order that the
effectiveness of the Tranportation Act may be maintained.
Now, therefore, be it reaolved that it be communicated to rarrivra and the employe! re
maining In the service and Ihe new employe succeeding thoae who have left the service, to take
nepa as soon a practicable to perfect on each carrier such organisations a may be deemed nee
eary for the purpose above mntiund, and
He it further rewlved. that if it b assumed that Ihe employes who leave the service of th
carrier because of their dissatisfaction with any deeiaion ef the labor Hoard are within their
right In . doing it must hkewis be conceded that the men wh.i remain in th service and tho
who enter il anew are withm their riuhl in accepting tuh employment-that they are mt sink,
breakers, seeking lo impose th arbitrary will of ait employer on mplye-that they have the
moral a ws-lt as th legal rtght engage in ueh service of the American pubiie U avoid intrrrup.
tum tt Indispensable railroad tranporttion and that they are rntnled to the protection of every
department and branch nf the Uuvernment, state and national.
