Congresswoman Judy Chu stands with ILWU Workers

Washington, DC – Today, Congresswoman Judy Chu (CA-32) released the following statement in response to the developing strike action taken by workers of ILWU Local 63’s Office Clerical Unit:

 “I am proud to stand with the ILWU Local 63’s Office Clerical Unit as they strike today to prevent their jobs from being sent overseas.  These hard working clerical workers, many of whom are women, have come to the negotiating table time and again for the last two years, to no avail. These are good American jobs that should stay here in the United States for these workers and for future generations.  I urge a swift resolution that safeguards the employment for office clerical workers at the Port of Los Angeles as quickly as possible, so they can get back to work and the port can continue functioning as a vital artery to our region and the country.”
