The ILWU Northern California District Council Endorses Dave Jones for Attorney General
Today, ILWU Northern California District Council (ILWU NCDC) — who represents 37,000 dock workers, warehouse workers, and members of the service industry in Northern California, and includes ILWU Local 6, Local 10, Local 14, Local 18, Local 34, Local 34 Oakland, Local 34 Delta Unit, Local 54, Local 75, and Local 91 — officially endorsed Dave Jones for Attorney General.
“The ILWU Norhern California District Council, consisting of ILWU locals which represent 37,000 dock workers, warehouse workers, shipping clerks, and other workers in the service industry, are proud to endorse Dave Jones for Attorney General,” said ILWU NCDC President Melvin Mackay. “Dave Jones has a proven track record of defending and protecting the rights of workers and working families throughout the state of California. We know that he will continue to be a champion for workers as California’s next Attorney General.”
“I am honored to have the support of the ILWU Norhern California District Council,” said Attorney General candidate Dave Jones. “The ILWU is one of the most progressive and storied unions in our nation’s history — fighting racial and gender discrimination and improving working conditions for the hard working men and women who operate our ports, warehouses, and work in manufacturing.”
ILWU Norhern California District Council joins a host of influential organizations endorsing Dave Jones after he won with 56% of the vote at the California Democratic Party Convention. Jones was endorsed by the widely respected San Jose Mercury News and East Bay Times earlier this month.
Jones was also endorsed by UPTE-CWA Local 9119 this month, which represents over 17,000 professional and technical employees at the University of California, and UNITE HERE! last month, which represents over 300,000 workers nationwide in the hotel, gaming, food service, manufacturing, textile, distribution, laundry, transportation, and airport industries.
ILWU Norhern California District Council is also joined by a host of Democratic grassroots organizations that all endorsed Dave Jones for Attorney General this month, including the Stonewall Democratic Club of Greater Sacramento, San Diego Progressive Democrats, Silicon Valley Asian Pacific American Democratic Club, Culver City Democratic Club, Porterville Democratic Club, and the Feather River Democratic Club.
