Port Trucker Strike in L.A./Long Beach Ends

Share This:

According to a statement released by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, port drivers in Long Beach and Los Angeles ended their strike after picketing last Monday through early Friday over low wages and employee status. Drivers were from Intermodal Bridge Transport (IBT), Pacer Cartage, Harbor Rail Transport (HRT), and Pacific 9 Transportation, who were the last to remain on strike.

“We have millions of dollars in claims for wage theft against the company and we refuse to give up our fight,” Byron Contreras, a driver leader at Pac 9 said in a statement. “But we need to feed our families, and while we’ve been on strike, the company has continued to charge us to use their trucks, to park their trucks in their yard, and to insure their trucks.”


Pac 9 is currently facing two class actions lawsuits for alleged wage theft and illegal misclassification of its drivers.
