ILWU bankruptcy

The union is facing a looming trial over allegations it illegally slowed down operations over several years at the Port of Portland, then operated by an affiliate of Philippines-based maritime company, according to a Wall Street Journal report…

The union in August ratified a six-year contract for U.S dockworkers that improved pay and benefits for 22,000 employees at 29 ports stretching from California to Washington State.



Only 4000 workers, I would have thought it would have been more.


Shipping containers are much easier to load and unload than loose cargo in the old days.
