Hundreds of Port of Seattle truck drivers and their community supporters rallied for change today along the Duwamish Waterway with the city skyline as their backdrop.  Their message was simple:  The truckers who transport the goods that drive our economy deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. 

The drivers walked off the job two weeks ago to protest unsafe and unfair working conditions at one of the busiest ports in the country.  Since then, they have organized press conferences, a town hall meeting, and a number of direct actions targeting unscrupulous trucking companies that are exploiting the workers.

An emergency fund has been established to offer financial support for the drivers and their families during this time of need. Donations can be made on-line at or by mail to: Puget Sound Sage, 1032 S. Jackson St. #203, Seattle, WA 98104.
