  •  The first letter from the Portland ILWU is (1+ / 0-)

    accurate. But it's not even near unanimous. No ILWU group can come out in support of this for a variety of reasons. There is support however in that very local. It' likely many members will NOT cross the picket line. On the other hand, I understand also that they may not be trying for a port shutdown in Portland either.

    The second letter just shows how the local Democratic appointed Port Commission lines up withe bosses. They represent NO WORKER at all at the port but are aligned with the private anti-union operators.
