Congratulations to Dean McGrath and Local 23 for leading the way in registration of new B-men.
On June 23, 2015 in CLRC-15-2015, the Coast agreed to register a bunch of longshoremen is a bunch of Ports on the west Coast.
Tacoma was authorized to take 100 new b-men in increments of 50, 25, and 25 per month over 3 consecutive months.
According to ilwulocal23.org Local 23 starts this Friday, July 17, 2015, with their first 50.
Local 13 has not been having LRC meetings, because PMA refuses to produce some minutes, so nothing is happening.
Local 13 put in a request for 1500 new B-men and were authorized to take 600 at a rate of 125 per month for 4 months and 100 in the 5th month. Nothing about consecutive months and no start date.
Local 13 also agreed to add 2,400 new ID casuals, the details of which have yet to be seen. I’d ask the LRC Reps if I was wanting to be on the list, and ask to see it in writing.
Interesting how Local13-bulletin-28-15 says nothing about the new casuals. Do they think that no one is interested in the casuals, or is it just another example of the leadership hiding information from the rank-and-file?
Maybe Local 13’s President could take time from his luncheon tour and get the LRC in gear and start registering like Dean’s Local?
Just say’n ………..
