LA Truck Drivers on Strike

Excerpt from American Journal of Transportation | July 07 2014

Early this morning, port truck drivers from three of Los Angeles’ leading drayage firms began widespread, indefinite Unfair Labor Practice strikes at truck yards and marine terminals at the twin ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, through which more than 40 percent of our nation’s imports are moved. These unfair labor practice strikes are the fourth such strikes in the past eleven months, and are a dramatic escalation from prior actions, which, like many other low wage worker strikes over the past year, were 24-48 hours in duration.

On day one of the strike at 12:00 noon PST, drivers are hosting a press conference at a park across from one of the busiest port marine container terminals, Wilmington Waterfront Park, 1206 W. C Street, Wilmington, CA, to speak out on the details of the strike.

Scarbrough International, Ltd. will monitor the situation closely and update with changes.  Please email info@scarbrough-intl.com with any questions.
