Union Finds Port of Oakland's Call for Cuts Unmerited

On Thursday, August 16 Local 21 presented its analysis of the Port of Oakland’s current finances and fiscal outlook. Local 21 members are currently bargaining a new contract at the Port and are faced with demands for 9% in concessions, despite the Port’s inability to justify concessions given its own improving revenue projections.

After conducting our analysis, we found that the Port’s demands for cuts are entirely unmerited, and that the Port can afford to provide our members with a 3.2% cost of living increase and still meet its financial obligations.
