ILA Work StoppageLast week, the International Longshoremen’s Association (ILA), which is the labor union representing US east and gulf coast longshoremen, laid the groundwork for a one-day strike to make a call on Washington DC to protest “government interference in our industry.”

The ILA has a long standing disagreement with the Waterfront Commission of New York/New Jersey.  The Waterfront Commission was created in 1953 to address the influence of the mob on the waterfront.  Today, the Waterfront Commission is responsible for vetting dock workers and businesses as well as conducting criminal investigations.

Industry groups appealed to the union to reconsider this illegal work stoppage. Frankly, we were concerned the International Longshore & Warehouse Union (ILWU). which is the union representing west coast dock workers, may participate in the work stoppage in “sympathy”  with their eastern counterparts.

It turns out, concern may not be necessary. The ILWU has indicated they will not be participating in any labor action. Furthermore, Harold Dagget, president ILA, urged his members “not to engage in any work stoppage or any other violations of our current master contract.”
