Constitutional Law Keyed to Rotunda
Youngstown Sheet & Tube Co. v. Sawyer
Citation:343 U.S. 579 (1952)
CaseCast™ – "What you need to know"
The steel companies and their employees could not reach a new collective bargaining agreement in 1951 and the Union gave notice of a nation-wide strike. The indispensability of steel as a component of substantially all weapons and other war materials led the President to believe that the proposed work stoppage would immediately jeopardize our national defense. The President issued an executive order which directed the Secretary of Commerce to take possession of most of the steel mills and keep them running. The Secretary immediately issued his own orders calling upon various seized companies to serve as operating for the United States. The next morning and twelve days later, the President notified Congress of his action. Congress has taken no action.
