520 |aThis is a study of the strike of railroad shopmen that began on July 1, 1922, and which, for many weeks, threatened to disrupt America's most vital transportation system. More specifically, it is a study of that strike from three points of reference: how it was conducted on the industry level, how it was conducted on a particular railroad, and how it was conducted in an important shop community. Through this approach it seeks, first, to delineate the actions of the national leaders of the railroad industry, of organized labor, and of the federal government; second, to identify the unique strategies employed by labor and management on a major railroad; and, finally, to analyze the impact of the strike on typical shopmen and on the community in which they lived.
520 |aThe study begins with a brief review of railroad history between 1873 and 1920 to place the strike in historical context. An examination follows of the disagreements that inflamed labor, management, and government relations between March 1, 1920, and June 30, 1922, and crystallized into the strike's proximate causes. The bulk of the work is then devoted to the anatomy of the strike on the three levels indicated. In conclusion, after examining the strike's consequences and the errors of all parties involved, the study seeks to support the thesis that the strikers, management, and the federal government all reverted to behavior patterns reminiscent of those demonstrated during the era of violence on the railroads from 1873 to 1894.
