The Transport Workers of America stands in solidarity with the International Longshore and Warehouse Union’s (ILWU) Juneteenth shut down of 29 west coast ports. The job action is in honor of the ongoing national protests to end systemic racism in the wake of George Floyd’s murder at the hands of Minneapolis police.
Labor and civil rights are closely intertwined. The fight for social, economic and racial justice is the labor movement’s biggest responsibility. The time for change is now.
