100 LONGSHORE WORKERS ADDED

August, 2015

It has been a difficult summer. The on-going labor shortages in Oakland have negatively affected terminal operations and, therefore, driver productivity.
However, hope is on the horizon. The Pacific Maritime Association (PMA) has agreed to promote 100 casual to registered longshore status and hire an additional 400 casual laborers.
This news is welcomed by all using the Port of Oakland.
