Scarce early 1900's unusual Railroad strike pin for theIllinois Central Railroad and Harriman Lines shopmen's strike of 1911.This 1" pin has light wear with no cracks. TheIllinois Central shopmen's strike of 1911was a labor action of a number of railroad worker's unions against theIllinois Central Railroad, beginning on September 30, 1911. The strike was marked by its violence. At least 12 were killed across the country. It was also judged a failure within months, long before its formal ending on June 28, 1915.The Illinois Central and the eight affiliatedHarriman lineshad recognized and successfully negotiated with individual shopcraft unions for some time. But in June 1911, these unions[2]sought additional leverage by negotiating together as the "System Federation".The railroad simply refused and replaced the strikers. The first day of the strike was relatively peaceful, with a reported 30,000 strikers[3]walking out at 10:00 a.m. in at least 24 cities, most in the south and midwest but as far west as Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
