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, email: harjit@equalvision.net
