Jobs with Justice Action Against the West Coast Waterfront Coalition
and the Pacific Maritime Association
Rally and March on WCWC Stores and the PMA
SUPPORT LOCKED OUT LONGSHORE WORKERS!!
While the ILWU pickets are up the docks, other unions and community members will build support in downtown Portland!
Friday, October 4--Meet at Pioneer Square at 12 Noon
(12 Noon--sharp! We will head out by 12:15pm--If you are late, try to find us at the Gap or Columbia Sportswear)
After taking our message to the stores, we will march to the Pacific Maritime Association office at 101 SW Main.
Join Jobs with Justice to tell the West Coast Waterfront Coalition and their corporate members NO MORE FEDERAL INTERFERENCE IN PRIVATE LABOR NEGOTIATIONS.
The Pacific Maritime Association closed down all West Coast ports, locking out ILWU workers last Friday, then again on Sunday. The West Coast Waterfront Coalition has gone on the offensive--telling their members to call Congress and the Bush administration to demand federal intervention. Columbia Sportswear, the Gap, Home Depot, Target and other corporations are part of the West Coast Waterfont Coalition.
We are making headway--Payless Shoesource has made statements against federal interference and Columbia Sportswear have started talking to us about it.
This contract fight not only affects the thousands of Longshore Union members up and down the West Coast, but also all other contract struggles coming up - reaching working people everywhere.
