WorkWeek looks at the hanging noose incidents and swastikas at the Port of Oakland against ILWU Local 10 longshore workers 85% of whom are African American. WorkWeek interviews ILWU Local 10 members Sean Graham and Stacie Rodgers. They protested by walking out on May 25, 2017. They discuss the history of these incidents and the need to have direct labor action to stop these attacks.
Next WorkWeek looks at the growing number of injuries at the Tesla plant at Fremont California. We interview Doug Parker, Executive Director of WorkSafe. Workers went to WorkSafe through the UAW which is seeking to organize the workers.
WorkSafe presented a study showing that there has been large increase in injuries and these were significantly higher than other auto plants.
