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.
