ICTSI "pleased" with ILWU violation ruling
ICTSI Oregon is “pleased” following a court ruling that the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) violated labour laws.
The statement comes after the United States Court of Appeals in Washington D.C. unanimously upheld two National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) decisions that the ILWU is guilty of violating federal labour laws after engaging in work stoppages and slowdowns at the Port of Portland’s Terminal 6.
ICTSI Oregon’s CEO, Elvis Ganda, said: “We are extremely pleased with the DC Circuit decisions because this means that the Court, as well as the NLRB, confirmed our position that the ILWU’s actions at Terminal 6 violated federal labor law. Our effort continues in federal court here in Portland to hold the ILWU accountable and obtain compensation for the harm it has done.”
The D.C. Circuit Court upheld the NLRB’s findings that the ILWU engaged in deliberate work stoppages and slowdowns, made false safety claims, and engaged in other coercive conduct against ICTSI Oregon and its customers.
The court found that ILWU committed these acts to pressure the Port of Portland to reassign the work of plugging and unplugging refrigerated containers at Terminal 6 from the port’s union-represented electricians to the ILWU.
ICTSI Oregon and the Port of Portland agreed to terminate the operator's 25-year lease at the port’s Terminal 6 after a series of problems including a lack of major clients and considerable labour issues.
