The commissioners gave the green light on the lease despite opposition from the local longshoremen’s union, which said it still has jurisdictional issues to work out with IRM.

“Once again we’re getting into an EGT-type situation,” said Billy Roberts, president of ILWU Local 21, referring to the union’s highly-charged battle over a lease with EGT in 2011, which lead to protests and several arrests.

A little history of the ILWU and the epic struggle that took place in Longview, Washington with ILWU Local 21 and the multi-national grain corporation, EGT.
