LOCAL 63 WINS TWIC ARBITRATION

In this Arbitration, the Employers denied a Longshore Division worker (longshore working as a Clerk) access to the terminal after being dispatched. The Employers, Hanjin-TTI, refused to "escort" or pay a lost work opportunity. The Member had made a good faith application for her TWIC renewal and had receipt in hand. She was awaiting TWIC card production and experienced delays during the process.

Attention Members: Please be sure to always print out your receipt when applying for your TWIC renewal. Your receipt will show that you have paid your fee. Also, take a look weekly to check your status. If the process takes more than 30 days, be sure to keep a fresh receipt with you. Print a fresh receipt at least every 30 days while you are waiting for your TWIC card. If you have any problems printing out your TWIC status, please come to the Local 63 Business Office and ask for an Officer or Robert Maynez, if an Officer is not available.
