IT’S TIME TO STAND UP! ASK QUESTIONS AND DEMAND ANSWERS!
After 10 months of longshore contract negotiations and reaching a 5-year tentative agreement (TA) the ILWU membership is still being kept in the dark. Some members have resorted to reading the shipowners’ Journal of Commerce (which now claims to have a copy of the TA) to get information. Other members have even gone to the PMA bosses’ website. Members can go to the Caucus March 30 at the Holiday Inn; 1500 Van Ness at Pine St. in SF. Find out what’s happening. That’s your right!
