Occupy Protesters 11/28/2011

The International Longshore and Warehouse Union is saying thanks but no thanks to a call from some Occupy protesters to shut down West Coast ports on Dec. 12.


Occupy Oakland passed a resolution last week calling for a "mass mobilization" in support of the union's fight against the owners of a new grain terminal at the Port of Longview in SW Washington.


The Longshore Union is already facing heavy court fines for vandalism and

blocking trains to the port in September after a federal judge warned the workers to stop violating their contract.


Union President Robert McEllarth says in a written statement

that the union appreciates the support from Occupy protesters but

hasn't authorized any shutdown. He says only union members or their

elected representatives can authorize such job actions.
