Truck Drivers Still on Strike at Oakland Port

I will post more of a reportback later in the week. I am busy posting pics, updating the main story, and spending time at the docks. Come out and join the strikers for a while if you can. The strike is on indefinitely, as the workers have commited to stay out in solidarity until all the drivers get the same deal. If the workers decide to settle or any authorities decide to attack the strikers I will try and post an update within a half hour(or get someone else too).

The list of demands that were develped by drivers based out of the Oakland Port is more extensive and detailed than the demands of the drivers in Southern California. Teamsters organizers that are helping the drivers told them that they will get their list of demands to the drivers down south, to see if they can start coordinating their struggle better.

Some Teamsters showed up at one of the gates and started handing out flyers and telling the drivers how they will be helping them out, in order to make sure that they get what they are asking for. The Teamsters organizers were going to present the truckers demands to the Oakland Port Authority at a meeting at 3pm today, and help coordinate between the truckers in the Bay Area and the truckers on strike in Southern California.
