ILWU’s 10 Guiding Principles
August 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.
