Teamsters: Port Drivers Win Nearly $7 Million in Wages, End Misclassification

(LOS ANGELES) – On Dec. 14, the California Labor Commissioner determined that 38 drivers at leading port trucking company Pacific 9 Transportation, which hauls containers from the twin ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach for some of America’s premiere brands – including Costco, Goodyear Tires, Ugg Boots, and Microsoft – are in fact employees, not independent contractors, and ordered Pac 9 to pay them nearly $6.9 million in stolen wages

Port Driver and Warehouse Worker Strikes End With $3.5 Million In New Wage Theft Claims Filed

After five days of active picketing that dramatically impacted trucking companies and the marine terminal operators that continued to allow the trucks of struck companies into their yards, misclassified “independent contractor” drivers from XPO Logistics, Intermodal Bridge Transport (IBT), and Gold Point Transportation ended their strike on October 30. Drivers from Pacific 9 Transportation remain on strike indefinitely. Amazon warehouse workers employed by Wilmington-based California Cartage also ended their strike with the support of the Teamsters.
