By Doug Cunningham
Despite efforts by employers to stop it, long shore union workers in California are going ahead with their planned work stoppage Thursday to protest the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Jack Heyman of ILWU Local 10 expects the ports to be shut down during the day shift May 1st.
[Heyman[: “This action on May Day is a culmination of our internationalist perspective, and we’re really proud that we’re actually going to be doing this.”
