NFI/California Cartage Express Drivers on Strike; Picket Lines at Port of Los Angeles

September 09: Drivers demanding an end to unfair and illegal discrimination for aspiring to form a union at their company; picket lines to extend from Port of Los Angeles to the Mojave Desert.

Early this morning, truck drivers who haul heavy loads of boron – a mineral mined 300 miles east of Los Angeles that is a critical component in every day consumer products from flatscreen TVs to smartphones – from the Rio Tinto mine in Boron, CA, to America’s largest port complex, are once again protesting their employer’s persistent unfair labor practices by going on strike at the Port of Los Angeles. With the support of the Teamsters Port Division and Teamsters Local 848, drivers walked off the job at 7:00 am PST to protest unfair and illegal discrimination for aspiring to form a union at their employer, NFI/California Cartage Express (CCX).
