...is the ILWU still shipping military supplies and if so, why?

Anti-Fa

Local 5 is the Powell's Books union. They have nothing to do with anything involving the port, nor do they have the ability to make Local 8 (the dock workers local) do anything. Further, any decision on handling cargo is most likely taken by the larger International.

Thus, Local 5 has absolutely no control over whether the ports continue to move military cargo. You can contact Local 8 (link at left) and I am sure they would be happy to address your concerns.

However, from my experiences, Local 5 is most likely heading into a tough contract fight this fall, so it would be nice for people to attend this fundraiser to help butress their war chest.

Take your divisive bullshit elsewhere. Cheers!
