predict the timing of government action should action be taken The most probably government action would be invoking the Taft Hartley injunction provision An injunction if issued would send the striking steelworkers back to the mills for at least 80 days but they would be free to strike again if no settlement was reached in that period Mitchell said Eisenhower feels Crash Rescuer Remains
