Both Trina and I will be traveling out of town to meet up with our IBU brothers and sisters who work for the city of Unalaska. This is an opportunity that we weren’t able to take since we started in office 1 year ago. Both offices will be closed on Friday, August 30th due to the trip and will also be closed on Monday, September 2nd in observation of Labor Day.
We will be back in office on September 3rd, 2019. If there are any members willing to come into the offices for Friday August 30th to answer phone calls, it would be much appreciated. Please send us an email if you would like to get a hold of us as we are unsure that our cellphones will work in Dutch Harbor.

Kodiak Picket Line Report
A lot of Unions and their family and friends understand what we are fighting for. We have had many people urging us to stand strong. The employer (the State) will try to chip away at your confidence to hold fast. They have been making attempts to divide us within our Union and between the other maritime unions on our vessels.
Here are letters of support to let you know we are not alone in this fight.
Sailor’s Union of the Pacific Solidarity
International Longshore & Warehouse Union Solidarity
Maritime Labor Alliance Solidarity
There is a lot of confusion created by all the information and misinformation floating around.
Please see the letter from our lawyers to the State that will help answer the legality of our strike.
