ILWU’s 10 Guiding Principles
Aug 5th, 2018 by Bill Floyd

SECTOR BARGAINING

CORPORATIONS ARE GLOBAL, in CHINA, VIETNAM,

MEXICO, EUROPE. UNIONS NEED TO JOIN TOGETHER in “SECTORS”

TO BARGAIN FAIRLY WITH THESE WORLD-DOMINATING BUSINESSES.

 

From the original I.L.W.U. LONGSHORE 10 GUIDING PRINCIPLES

No. VI  The days are long gone when a union can consider dealing with single employers.  The powerful

financial interests of the country are bound together in every conceivable type of united organization to

promote their own welfare and to  resist the demands of labor. Labor can no more win with the ancient

weapons of taking on a single employer in industry any more than it can hope to win through  the worn-

out dream of withholding its skill until an employer sues for peace. The employers of this country are part

of a well-organized, carefully coordinated, effective fighting machine. They can be met only on equal

terms, which requires industry-wide bargaining, & extensive economic strength of organized labor.

Year of the Native Women for Congress 2018
Jul 29th, 2018 by Bill Floyd

WOMEN RUN FOR POLITICAL OFFICE in RECORD NUMBERS

Women have dominated political headlines since the  beginning of 2018 as this year

has seen a record number of females vying for political seats. One group of women is

setting out to transform 2018 from “Year of the Woman” to

the “Year of the Native Woman.”  

Forty-eight Native American women representing 17 states are running for

state and congressional offices. Three of those women are running for U.S.

Congress: Sharice Davids, D-Kansas; Debra Haaland, D-New Mexico;

and Amanda Douglas, D-Oklahoma. The three candidates represent the Ho-Chunk,

Laguna Pueblo and Cherokee tribes, respectively.

 

Sharice Davids  – Democratic candidate for Kansas’ U.S. House District Three

Sharice Davids is a member of the Ho-chunk Nation of Wisconsin and spent the

majority of her life in Kansas. There, she was raised by her mom, who also served in

the U.S. Army for 20 years. Davids’ political career started after she graduated with

her law degree from Cornell University.   Seeking to focus on equity and fighting for

underserved communities, she completed a year as a White House Fellow as the

administration transitioned from Barack Obama to Donald Trump.

Debra Haaland

Democratic candidate for New Mexico’s U.S. House District One

Debra Haaland is a member of the Laguna Pueblo tribe and was the Lieutenant

Governor nominee of New Mexico in 2014 after serving for one year as the Native

American caucus chair for the Democratic Party. She was the first Native American

woman in the U.S. to chair a state party.  Haaland was also the first Chairwoman

elected to the Laguna Development Corp. board of directors, overseeing the business

operations of the second largest tribal gaming enterprise in New Mexico. She has

worked on many “get out the vote” efforts and volunteered full time for President

Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign. Haaland is a single mother who was raised in a

military family. She earned her law degree at the University of New Mexico School of

Law in Albuquerque, N.M.

Amanda Douglas

Democratic candidate for Oklahoma’s US House District One.  

Amanda is a member of the Cherokee Tribe and has spent her entire

life in Oklahoma, where she now resides with her husband and daughter.

Originally a business analyst and consultant, she broke her way into politics after

her daughter was born in 2016 as a way to help prepare a better future, specifically

regarding education, for her child.

ILWU Longshore “Eye of the Storm” with Big Bob McEllrath
Jul 28th, 2018 by Bill Floyd

“EYE of the STORM” Intro by PRESIDENT Big BOB McELLRATH

ILWU Documentary on KCRW.org/CARGOLAND

You know, when the lines come off the dock and the boat gets on the water, everything bad in your life goes away… You’re on the ocean.

Johnny O, The Pirate

Forty percent of everything that the United States imports — car parts, bananas, lumber, jet engines, grain, shoes, phones, sofas, and so

much of what fills the aisles of Nordstrom, Walmart and Home Depot — comes through the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. Together,

these harbors form the busiest port complex in the United States, and the ninth busiest in the world.

From a distance, cranes tower like dinosaurs and metal boxes the size of small houses are hoisted from giant ships in an inhuman, industrial

landscape.

Zoom in and you’ll see workers fighting to join the union, harbor pilots navigating massive vessels through narrow channels, and linesman

tying ships to the docks by hand.

The ports are in the midst of a technological revolution, affecting the lives of thousands of workers and their families. Automation is

changing the way cranes and ships and trucks work, threatening livelihoods that go back generations.
