Join The Inland Boatmen's Union, ILWU and Master Mates and Pilot's Union on Martin Luther King's Birthday Weekend as we RALLY & MARCH for JUSTICE!

Sunday January 14th
10:30AM Assemble at Harry Bridges Plaza in front of the Ferry Building in San Francisco
11:00AM Rally and March from Pier 3 to Pier 33

This January 14th the Inland Boatmen's Union and the Masters Mates and Pilots will increase the street heat against Terry Macrae's Alcatraz Cruises.

This past December 9th saw a thousand union members and their allies, representing 50 unions, maritime and shoreside in the largest waterfront demonstration in years. This coincided with a stop work meeting and port shutdown by the Bay Area longshore locals.

The day before Martin Luther King's birthday we will redouble our efforts to defend unionized maritime labor in San Francisco and to support the 55 working families who lost their jobs over 4 months ago.

We remember that Dr King was assassinated while supporting a garbage workers strike in Memphis. He clearly recognized that social justice is unachievable without economic justice!

Organized labor and its allies must maintain these street actions to send an unmistakable message to MacRae that a non union ferry operation in the heart of the San Francisco waterfront is unacceptable!"
