It takes 2 to tango, and both the ILWU and PMA are dancing.
When PMA’s Senior Counsel, Toddler Amidon, was asked whether or not the Contracts have been sent to the printer his response was; “What kind of a relationship do you think we have that you can call me and ask me a question like that?”
I was not sure what to say, because I don’t have to have “a relationship” with a person to be civil and answer a simple factual question, because my parents taught me to treat people the way I would like to be treated.
Something Toddler apparently did not learn.
When I became a man, I stopped acting like a child.
Apparently, Toddler did not, or I just bring out the child in him.
Toddler did however tell someone; “he did not know” if the contracts had gone to the printers.
Seems to me that the Industry better hope that Big Baby gets his members to agree to the extension, because with children like Toddler representing the Employers a repeat of the 2014 debacle is a sure thing.
If the Contracts went to the printers after the ILWU International and PMA were served their latest NLRB charges, they might have to be reprinted before the ink even dries.
More to come…..
