The Workforce

The Longshore Division of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) represents waterfront employees on the U.S. and Canadian Pacific Coast, Hawaii, and Alaska. Nearly more than 16,850 registered ILWU workers are employed at West Coast ports.

Longshore workers handle the loading and unloading of ships and barges, stuff and unstuff certain containers, handle lines, maintain stevedoring gear and perform many other activities. The Clerks process the cargo information for delivery and shipment. Walking bosses or Foremen are in charge of the loading and unloading operation and reporting to the stevedoring company superintendent.

信誉最好的十大娱乐平台 and ILWU collaborate on both coast-wide and local safety initiatives, resulting in record low accident rates in 2021.
