Hundreds rally for portworkers as "mediation" drags on
10/6: Hundreds rallied at the Port of Oakland on 10/5 to show their support for the locked-out longshoresman and their struggle against the Pacific Maritime Association (PMA) - Photos. ILWU portworkers are still locked out, 9 days after the PMA accused them of a work slowdown and shut the gates at 29 West Coast ports, though military shipments and cargo to Alaska and Hawai'i are now being allowed through.

Whether Bush will invoke the Taft-Hartley Act to impose the 80-day "cooling off" period (read: put a gun to the union's head) remains to be seen. ILWU Local 10 has requested help from supporters to staff picket lines at the port of Oakland immediately, including the following docks: Sealand, Maersk, Berth 5, Jack London Square, and APL (foot of Adeline St).Picketline photos
