  •  I think you might not understand Hawaii ILWU (4+ / 0-)

    They've left their progressive roots and have embarked on a policy of trading unionization for acting as the PR arm of whatever corporation will unionize.

    Their members advocate for cane burning because the corporation says its going to lay them all off if it can't burn.

    IMO, they are completely out of step with National ILWU.

    Hawaii ILWU under Willie Kennison declared war on the environmentalists and threw their lot in with the developers.

    In these days of eroding union support, it just isn't smart to alienate one's natural allies and I hope that under Donna Domingo, Hawaii ILWU will integrate itself back in with the progressive community.
