At 2022 "Bloody Thursday", a commemoration took place in San Francisco at a memorial outside the ILWU Local 10 hall. Past ILWU Local 10 president Trent Willis spoke out about the issues facing ILWU member including covid and the shipping corporations who while making billions are taking a hard line
in current contract negotiations.

Bloody Thursday takes place every July 5 to commemorate two workers Nicholas Bordoise and Howard Sperry who were murdered on that day in 1934 by the police near the union hall on Spear St. These murders led to the 1934 general strike that established the union and won the hiring hall and ended the shape-up.

It also led to the organizing of hundreds of thousands of workers in Northern California.
