SEIU 1021 Port Workers are Going on Strike against Unfair Labor Practices engaged in by the Port of Oakland. The Port of Oakland has a $37 million surplus, yet refuses to give workers the proper information that they are required to by law. This is one of the richest Port’s in Oakland, the Federal Government has invested in the expansion of the Port to create good jobs in Oakland… and now the Port is refusing to Bargain.

Stop Unfair Labor Practices at the Port!
Support SEIU 1021 strike!

We are asking for your support!
Please come out on Tuesday, November 21 at the Port of Oakland:
9 AM: SSA Terminal 1717 Middle Harbor, Berth 57-59
12 PM Noon: Terminal 1 Oakland Airport
5 PM: SSA Terminal 1717 Middle Harbor, Berth 57-59

FULL SCHEDULE

Background:
After 16 months without a contract, management at the Port of Oakland still refuse to negotiate fairly. They are demanding cuts, even with a $37 million surplus… and are lying about their finances to the workers and the public. We need more, good jobs in Oakland–not line Goldman Sachs pockets.

Stand up for Good Jobs!
Stand up for Oakland!
Stand up for Fair Bargaining!!!

#DefendJodie — Take The Eviction Defense to the Bank’s Doorstep! @ meet @ Montgomery Bart
Nov 20 @ 9:00 pm – 10:30 pm

Now we take the eviction defense of Jodie Randolph to the banks’ doorstep! Again!

We’ve got round-the-clock defense of the home. We put Morgan Stanley on notice and shut down their Oakland office with a group delegation two weeks ago. We’ve shut down the phone lines to one of their executive’s offices with a 2-day phone blast campaign.

Now that we’ve got their attention, we demand that we speak with someone with decision making ability.

We are ready to negotiate a repurchase agreement and we demand a shotcaller be put on the case!

NO MORE RUNAROUND!
NO MORE EXCUSES, MORGAN STANLEY!

WHEN: TUESDAY, 1PM
WHERE: MONTGOMERY BART STATION, SF

We gather at the BART station for a pre-action briefing, then march to the SF offices of Morgan Stanley where we will deliver our demands and seek a sitdown meeting with John Sheldon, the SF managing director. Press conference afterwards.

Solidarity With the Walmart Workers. Black Friday Strike. @ Walmart, Oakland
Nov 23 @ 6:00 am – 7:45 am

As the largest employer in the country, Walmart could be setting a standard for businesses to value workers. Instead, it has become the greatest oppressor of workers everywhere.

Shut Them Down!

This action continues all night into the next day, until 10:00 AM, November 23rd.

FOOD AND ENTERTAINMENT PROVIDED.

JAB visits the Oakland City Council Public Safety Committee Mtg @ Oakland City Hall, Sgt. Mark Dunakin Room - 1st Floor
Nov 28 @ 2:00 am – 3:30 am

The City Council Public Safety Committee will be taking a report from the police on their hiring practices (e.g., as to why they hire people like Officer Masso who, before he killed Alan Blueford, tortured a prisoner in NY and then refused to call for medical aid), and also taking another report on what police standards are when dealing with the family of a victim of an officer-involved shooting (e.g., do you keep the family sitting around for hours and then misidentify the victim, as happened to the Bluefords?).

Come join us in witness and in support of Justice 4 Alan Blueford.
