Official Harris & Ewing photo by Abbie Rowe of President Truman and his complete Cabinet at an 11:00 a.m. Cabinet meeting in the White House on Friday, August 25, 1950. Title of each office has been neatly printed beneath each signature. Date printed at lower right. At this Cabinet meeting, General Omar Bradley briefed the Cabinet on Korea and Secretary of State Dean Acheson discussed a U.N. speech of the previous day in which the U.S. had been branded as an aggressor in Formosa before President Truman outlined the railroad strike situation to the Cabinet. Truman announced that there was only one solution to the strike, which was scheduled to take place on Monday, August 28 - immediate government seizure of the railroads. He informed the Cabinet that the Attorney General (J. Howard McGrath) had been instructed to prepare the order of seizure to be effective at 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, August 27. On the day of this Cabinet meeting, President Truman signed Executive Order 10155 and made an announcement to the nation at 4:00 p.m., in part: "I have today issued an Executive Order, providing for taking over the country's railroads at 4 P.M., Eastern Standard Time, on August 27, 1950, and providing for their operation by the Secretary of the Army in the name of the United States Government. A nationwide strike has been called for 6 A.M., Monday, August 28, by two of the railroad labor organizations--the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen and the Order of Railway Conductors. These unions have declined to accept the findings and recommendations of an emergency board created by the President under the Railway Labor Act. In the strike situation thus confronting us, governmental seizure is imperative for the protection of our citizens...." On the date of this meeting, the military situation in Korean looked very grim. North Korean forces, which had invaded the South on June 25, 1950, had driven the defenders - including the first US and UN forces - back into a narrow perimeter around the southern port of Pusan. Not until September 15, when US forces under General MacArthur launched a daringThe railroad dispute ended on May 21, 1952, when the three operating unions, the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen, the Order of Railway Conductors and the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and Enginemen, accepted the terms arranged by the Government. On May 23, 1952, the railroads were returned to their owners after having been operated by the U.S. Army for a period of 21 months. Lightly creased. Slightly soiled at top blank margin and at lower right corner. Fine condition.
