OCCUPY THE EGT!
Don’t stop mobilizing until the workers declare victory!
While a contract with ILWU will not change the fact that EGT and its parent companies, specifically Bunge Ltd., are “Wall Street on the Waterfront,” witnessed by their record of despicable practices that destroy communities here and abroad, Occupy absolutely supports Local 21 in determining the terms and conditions of their labor. Our movement remains committed to fighting economic systems that pit worker against worker for the benefit of corporations that exploit our natural resources and destroy the fabric of our communities.
As confidential negotiations between the ILWU and EGT continue, we will continue to stand beside the workers of Longview. West Coast Occupations will not stop organizing and preparing to mobilize until the Longshore workers claim victory. If members of Local 21 vote to approve the contract, we will go celebrate with them. If negotiations stall or if the results are not satisfactory to the Local 21 rank and file, our caravan will be ready to go.
