-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ILWU documentary film by Amy Williams depicting the 2002 contract struggle between the union and the shippers who ultimately locked out thousands of longshore workers from ports on the west coast. The film offers interviews and news clips showing all sides and actions in the 2002 struggle, which lasted nine months, and gives a history of the ILWU from its birth during the bloody 1934 west coast maritime strike through today, as a grass-roots-led progressive democratic force within American labor.
