Shut it down! Haulers lined up with nowhere to go.

Here is the SEIU’s very recent announcement of the success of the action so far and plans for later in the day:

UPDATE 9 AM: Press conference being held shortly at 1717 Middle Harbor Way, look for the oversized rat. Port workers and their allies have effectively shut down the Port of Oakland. Port unions have respected SEIU Local 1021′s picket line. The previously planned Airport Rally for 12 NOON is canceled. Workers must maintain the picket lines at the harbor. For more information, call Anna Bakalis 510-387-5341.

The call is still out to come to the Port to maintain the picket lines and make sure the lines hold from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM.
