Once again the voices of our Port workers are being silenced. At a special meeting in September, the Port Deputy General Manager asked workers to stop filing grievances and further intimidated them by using the current cases at the Civil Service Commission (CSC) for the terminated employees as an example of the slow grievance process.  “Although some of them may win their cases in the CSC, but CSC is so backed up that could be two or three years from now", stated the Deputy General Manager.  Intimidation and retaliation at the Port is keeping our members from standing up for their rights and protecting their working conditions.  Members have been fighting for a collective bargaining agreement (CBA) that has been signed and ratified since 2012.  It’s time for the Port to enforce the CBA now.
