Commentary Date
Day one of the California trucker's and Teamsters protest at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach got off to a slow start yesterday (7 July) as port operations continued without any disruption.

With no picket line to honor, members of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) continued business as usual.

California truck drivers at three major transportation companies went on strike Monday morning. With the backing of the Teamsters, they are demanding the end of purported labor law violations, including misclassification and charges of intimidation and wrongful termination for supporting organized labor.

The three firms affected by the strike classify their drivers as independent contractors instead of employees, meaning they don't have to pay various benefits. The protestors have stated that they will refuse to return to work until their demands are met. Source: GAC.
