Today, Tuesday, July 20th, the ILWU Credit Union removed the its ATM machine from our first floor lobby at the request of the Memorial Association for lobby remodeling. This project is anticipated to last at least 2 weeks. Local 63 and its Memorial Association appreciate your patience during this process.

We thought we would share with you a letter received by the Port of Los Angeles from a 6th grader named Troy who lives in Langley, British Columbia, Canada, thanking Longshore workers in the Port of L.A. who ensure that the grapes he loves to eat reach their destination in his city, Langley, B.C.
Please click to read and enjoy this thoughtful letter, which was part of his class project to show gratitude to those who move the goods from the farm to the table.
The CLRC has extended the face coverings requirement in the workplace and dispatch halls until at least July 30th. The Local 63 Officers will keep you updated when more information becomes available.
Thank you for your contribution to a safer work environment.
