Port Solidarity Caravan
UPDATE: A deal has been reached in time for the holidays!
Please read the following statement from Labor Union Staff Director Glen Arnodo
"Sisters and Brothers:
By now everyone has heard the great news about the settlement of the strike at the ports of LA and Long Beach. Congratulations to the strikers for hanging tough and fighting to keep good jobs from leaving LA. And thanks to the thousands of men and women of the ILWU and other unions who respected the picket lines of the clerks. What a tremendous act of solidarity!
Thanks to all of you who responded that you were going to participate in Saturday's solidarity caravan from Dodger Stadium to the port. I can't think of a better reason to cancel an event!
Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO"
