Update Port of Oakland

December 12, 2011

“The Port of Oakland has remained operational, with protests leading to sporadic disruptions and some delays of truck traffic and dock-worker shifts”

Protesters caused sporadic disruptions throughout the Port area, which led to delays, but the Port has remained operational throughout the morning. Traffic is now flowing into and out of the Port.

We are working with our partners – labor, community, business, truckers, dock-workers, and our government and law enforcement partners – to keep the Port operational throughout the day.

We stress again:  it’s important to keep the Port open so that workers can make a living, the Port can continue creating jobs, and we all take steps to improve economic opportunities for the community and the region.
