Organizer/AuthorGurley
For the past 2 months Bay Area maritime union members have been picketing daily in a struggle to maintain union wages and working conditions.

Terry Macrae's Alcatraz Cruises (a subsidiary of Hornblower) refuses to hire IBU and MM&P members who have worked on the Alcatraz ferry since 1973.

The International Longshore and Warehouse Union was born out of the 1934 San Francisco Maritime and General Strike.

Since then the ILWU has maintained good wages and working conditions on the entire Bay Area waterfront. The current assault by Hornblower is a direct attack at the heart of ILWU jurisdiction and demands a powerful response.

In a show of solidarity ILWU Local 10 voted for a port-wide shutdown in support of the IBU and MM&P workers.

This is a call for all union members and their allies to join us on the picket line December 9th at 10:00am
