#BARTstrike support action at 5pm is MOVED! Instead of West O #BART meet at Berths 30-32/Middle Harbor Park for Port of O action!
Here’s an account of what’s happened:
There was a successful picket line this morning called by striking members of ATU 1555 (with supporters from other unions and TWSC ) Members of ILWU 10 honored the picket line and refused to cross. The action targeted that facility.
However shortly before the picket line ended this morning a High ranking OPD cop (who identified himself as Chief of Operations) falsely stated that any picket line in the entrance of the Berths was ”illegal” – that the only thing he would permit would have to be on the side of the driveway or across the street.
The workers refused his ”request” plan to have a genuine picket line once again beginning at 5 pm .
All supporters of both the BART workers strike and the democratic right to picket are urged to participate.
