Even before the pandemic, decades of misclassification and lawbreaking by companies like Universal Logistics Holdings left Port Drivers without the protections we need to stay safe on the job. Now the ports are busier than ever as we are keeping this country running. But we lost our friends and colleagues to COVID-19 because of the greed of private companies, denial of essential PPE, and deadly inaction from the Port Commission.

These deaths were preventable! Help us hold Universal Logistics Holdings accountable.

Edwin Cruz was a truck driver for 30 years, a husband, and a father to his 8 year-old son. He raised his voice to get the protections drivers need to protect them from COVID-19. But Universal Logistics Holdings failed to protect him. He passed away from COVID-19 on February 28, 2021 and leaves behind his son and wife. Today and every day, we organize in his memory. May he rest in power.

Rest in Power
