According to PMA 2013 Annual Report page 65, casuals worked 18.7% of the 4,905,219 hours paid to tractor drivers.
Casuals worked 917,277 hours or 114,659 jobs, but Local 10 claims none of those jobs were worked by their casuals, because they are not trained and therefore unsafe.
Funny how Bobby Olvera Jr. claims that when he was a B-man in Local 10 he got crane trained. Even though there are no JPLRC Minutes showing he was crane trained, he is certified by PMA as a crane driver.
Local 10 does what ever they want to do, as demonstrated by their refusal to fill jobs when they don’t feel like it.
PMA would rather let APL stop calling at Oakland than force Local 10 to provide longshoremen in accordance with the Contract.
In Tacoma, Local 23 has casuals (mostly genetically qualified) that drive Straddle Carriers, and San Francisco’s Local 10 claims their casuals can not drive tractors.
Time for PMA to step up and tell the ILWU to knock it off?
When does PMA grow some and tell Local 13 and Local 10; homey don’t play that, then smack them up side the head with a tennis ball in a sock?
