Eugene V. Debs from the American Railway Union (ARU) joined the fight. The ARU then started a boycott of all Pullman railway cars.

More fighting and boycotting resulted, but the governments actions would cause this to eventually end.
sympathy strikes occurred in 23 states
Railroad Owners: We demand the federal government to intervene with this strike, the transportation from Chicago to the Pacific coast has been paralyzed!
Attorney General Richard Olney: President Cleveland is sending federal troops to insure the delivery of mail and to end this violence.
It's a good thing we stopped them and we can get our mail now.
