    Default Oakland seaport, airport workers set to return

    My Teamster son-n-law got caught up in this.

    11/21/2012
    OAKLAND, Calif. — Custodial and maintenance workers at Oakland International Airport and at one of the nation's busiest seaports were set to end their picketing and return to work late Tuesday and early Wednesday after a one-day strike, officials said.

    Airport employees were scheduled to be back at work for the beginning of a 10 p.m. Tuesday shift, said Port of Oakland spokesman
    Numerous dockworkers, who load and unload cargo vessels, refused to cross the picket line at the port as a show of solidarity with the protesting workers.

    "These service workers have effectively shut down the port," said Jack Heyman, a retired longshoreman from Oakland who chairs the International Longshore and Warehouse Union's transport workers solidarity committee.

    Dozens of truck drivers decided not to interrupt the protest.

    Hate to belabor the issue but I wanna know where these public sector unions (SEIU) are when we teamsters need/ed them, I know! Nowhere!!! All I hear about in the news these days is how the public sector unions are taking it in the ass while we private sector teamsters are a blip on the radar.

    I don't understand your point... Maybe you can explain it in a little more detail so us commoners can understand..

    IMO, all unions are taking it in the a**. I don't like dividing the two. When we did our rally in Santa Fe almost 2 years ago, it was both public and private sector unions on that march. Total Solidarity!!
