A federal jury in Portland recently awarded terminal operator ICTSI Oregon $93.6M for the International Longshore & Warehouse Union’s (ILWU) unlawful labor practices.

It all started in 2012 over two jobs monitoring refrigerated containers.  These two jobs were under contract with the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), but the ILWU wanted them.  According to National Labor Relations Board and the Portland jury, the ILWU deliberately slowed their productivity as a tactic to get the terminal operator to relent and give the jobs to the ILWU, despite the fact they were not their jobs to give but rather the port’s.
