Several weeks ago, SEIU Local 1021 endorsed the Justice 4 Alan Blueford
coalition and our march against racial profiling by police. We thank them
for their support and we thank their members who turned out for the march.
Members of SEIU Local 1021 are now planning to strike the Port of Oakland
on Tuesday, November 20, and we would like to extend back to them our full
solidarity. Many of these workers are among the people of color who
face racial profiling in Oakland every day and as they stood with us we
stand with them. Oakland workers deserve justice on the job just as much as
they deserve justice–and constitutional protections–on the street.
Members of the Justice 4 Alan Blueford coalition will be on the picket line
Tuesday and we invite all of our supporters to join us.
