This day in Railroad History

June 26, 1894
The recently organized American Railway Union, led by the charismatic labor crusader, Eugene V. Debs, voted to support striking Pullman Palace Car workers. The union membership meeting in convention in Chicago, called for a national boycott of Pullman cars on all the railroads in the country. Within the next three days the strike halted nearly all railroad traffic across the nation. The first and continuous focal point of the strike was Chicago. That city was headquarters of the American Railway Union and the main Midwestern crossroads terminal of major railroads from the Eastern cities and trans-Mississippi lines to the West Coast. Employees who refused to handle Pullman cars were summarily discharged. Such actions immediately led to a strike by all the categories of workmen encompassed by the American Railway Union.
