Stockton Trucker's Strike is over. Almost three days in the company
caved to 70% of the demands of the drivers. The drivers are back on
the job and are overall happy with the outcome of the event.
Truck Drivers in the Centrall Valley (members of IU530) are now
back to work. After winning 70% of their demands and making a
point of their problems with their workplace, the bosses caved after
nearly three days. Three days of trucking is losses in the tens of
thousands for the company and they could not suffer much more. A
new contract was signed which included the new demands. Overall,
worker's solidarity and stregnth won out.


Stockton Truck Drivers Go on Strike 9/13/04: Stockton Truck drivers
walked off the job today, in response to share-cropping conditions
under private contractor positions in Stockton area trucking yards.
Now organized under the IWW IU 530, truck drivers decided to
unionize after conditioned bad conditions of 7 work day weeks, and
swindled time and money. Many truck drivers work 12 hour days to
compensate for having to pay for their own gas, tires, and repairs. All
of these conditions create jobs that can't support working families.
IWW organizers are calling for solidarity, help, and financial support
in the stuggle for justice for the Stockton truck drivers. For more info,

direct action social struggle syndicalist union.]
