DO NOT USE the ILWU/PMA Contract Section 13.2 discrimination procedure. It is optional, and run by incompetent corrupt Arbitrators.

Do not use Section 13 of the PCLCD or the Green Book to file claims of discrimination.

Contact us, or get a lawyer and have them contact us, if you want to win.

The Section 13 procedure is just there to protect the Union and PMA, not you.

It is a totally rigged procedure run by incompetent corrupt Arbitrators.

According to Section 17 of the PCLCD, and the Green Book, the Contract grievance procedure must be exhausted before pursuing any other remedy.

While under oath, during depositions, experts from both PMA and the Union stated that everyone knows that they Contract grievance procedure is optional and voluntary, and that everyone knows they free to go to the outside at any time.

Well, the same principle holds for confidentiality.

The PCLCD and the Green Book both claim the grievance procedure is confidential, but they know that it is not.

There is no confidentiality in the workplace, outside of the Companies proprietary business secrets.

Everyone knows that, right PMA and ILWU?
