President Franklin Roosevelt signs Executive Order 9412.  “Railroad strikes by three Brotherhoods have been ordered for next Thursday,” Roosevelt said in a statement.  “The Government will expect every railroad man to continue at his post of duty.  The major military offensives now planned must not be delayed by the interruption of vital transportation facilities.  If any employees of the railroads now strike, they will be striking against the Government of the United States.”
