Mark Mendoza, Victor Hudak, Bob McEllrath, and Chris Viramontes ought to feel real proud of themselves for kicking the ILWU’s top activist out of the Union, for Christmas.
The family values of the ILWU are once again trashed by these Grinches, who dare to call themselves Union leaders.
Read for yourselves the letters they gave to this X-ILWU family this Christmas.
Chris Viramontes is trying to hide behind a veil of confidentiality that does not exist. He and his former business partner, Arbitrator Mark Mascola conspired to deregister a member because they did not like his political cartoons. Mascola deregistered a member because he damaged Chris Viramontes reputation.
His reputation? Yes. His reputation.
Look in your PCLCD, and tell me what Section covers reputations.
This is what happens when a member dares to question the current leadership of the ILWU.
This is also why Union membership is dropping and only about 10-20% of the ILWU membership go to Union meetings or vote in Union elections.
This is what you get when your Union is run by a closed Facebook Group of about 1300 morons.
To further add insult to injury Mark Mendoza, Victor Hudak, Bob McEllrath, and Chris Viramontes kicked the member off the Grievance Committee he was elected to, based on flat out lies, and gave him the following letters for Christmas.
It was not enough to deregister the member and then call Local 23 in Tacoma to tell them not to dispatch the man to their non-PMA rail ramp, they are going to kick him off the Committee he was elected to and out of the Union all together.
Does not matter how many free meals you give out, or toys you buy for needy kids, when you treat your own family like this man and his family are being treated by your Union, you are scum and going to hell.
Any self-respecting member who stays quite about this is guilty by association, and better start looking over your shoulder because you are next.
Fuck you Mark Mendoza, Victor Hudak, Bob McEllrath, and Chris Viramontes.
