ILWU Local 34 Backs OEA Strike And Opposes Privatization & Charter Schools

Solidarity with the Oakland Teachers’ Strike

Whereas, Oakland school teachers union (OEA) started striking today for better public education and against the privatizing assault of charter schools, and
Whereas, teachers across the country from West Virginia to Colorado to California have been striking against these attacks with overwhelming public support, and
Whereas, Oakland school board is using the phony excuse of financial difficulties as the reason for closing schools, cutting programs and holding down teachers’ wages, and
Whereas, the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach last year taxed cargo to the tune of $10.7 billion dollars while the port of Oakland didn’t collect a penny while boasting a
record high container volume of 2.55 million TEU’s of containers,
Therefore Be It Resolved that ILWU Local 34 will support the striking teachers just demands by building and honoring their picket lines according to The Ten Guiding
Principles of the ILWU “Labor solidarity means just that. Unions have to accept the fact that the solidarity of labor stands above all else, including even the
so-called sanctity of the contract.”

Passed overwhelmingly by Local 34 on February 21, 2019
