Come to a Public Meeting about the showdown on the Oakland Docks Speakers Include: Jack Heyman, Business Agent, ILWU Local 10* Sue Sandlin, Charleston 5 Defense Cmte.* & International Socialist Organization Saturday, July 27 2pm at the Oakland YWCA 1515 Webster in Downtown Oakland (at the corner of 15th and Webster, three blocks from 12th Street BART) Contract negotiations continue this week between 10,500 members of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union and the greedy port bosses who control the $260 BILLION worth of goods that flow through West Coast ports every year. Now the bosses want to layoff 10% to 20% of the workers to get even richer! They are getting a helping hand from the Bush Administration, which claims that the workers fighting for their rights are a threat to "Homeland Security." As unemployment rises and the stock market falls, the poor and workers are really suffering while the criminal CEO's get a slap on the wrist and golden parachutes. A victory for the dock workers will be a victory for defending good, high paying union jobs for Bay Area workers of all races. On the other side, if the bosses can force the best organized, most multi-racial & most progressive union in the country to take major concessions, it will signal open season on the rest of the labor movement and the working class and poor people in general.
