    Default Bus Loaded With Scab Workers Blocked At Port Of Vancouver

    Thirty community members and union supporters confronted and temporarily stalled a bus transporting scab workers to the Port of Vancouver, Washington, last Wednesday. The action came a day before the one-year anniversary of the lockout of ILWU Local 4 by United Grain. International Longshore and Warehouse Union members from Vancouver and Portland, Oregon, have endured a year of contentious contract negotiations, lost work, and harassment. Talks on a master contract for grain workers, between four big employers and four Pacific Northwest ILWU locals, broke down in late 2012. After grain workers voted down management’s “last, best, and final” offer by 94 percent, two of the companies—United Grain and Columbia Grain, which operates at the Port of Portland—imposed their terms anyway, hoping to provoke a strike. The unions didn’t take the bait, but both employers subsequently locked workers out.

    Thanks for that update. I have been following this story for quite a while. Some here know that my grandpa and his brother were longshore men in Southern, CA and I have an interest in what is going on.
