Port Organizing

September 24, 2014: One area where our union has made a long-term strategic commitment is the Port Worker organizing campaign.
 
In a global economy, workers have leverage at key points in the logistics and distribution chain-trucking, warehousing and ports—but only if we’re organized. Port workers are at a critical chokepoint in that logistics chain.
 
As part of the Port Organizing campaign, the union has built alliances with environmental groups and community organizations. Because almost all port drivers are wrongly classified as independent contractors, organizing is a long term project that requires a political strategy as well as organizing.
