Port Workers Victorious in L.A. City Council Decision

(LOS ANGELES) – After years of protests, legal actions, and strikes by warehouse workers and port truck drivers at  NFI Industries/California Cartage – which had a lease to operate on public property at America’s largest seaport – compelling the  Los Angeles City Council and the City Attorney to take strong action leading to NFI’s abandonment of the property, the City Council today voted unanimously to demand that cargo owners like Lowe’s , Puma, and  Rio Tinto Mines clean up their supply chains and move their business to trucking and warehousing companies that comply with labor and human rights standards that are embedded in their own  corporate codes of conduct .
