We went down to Tacoma for a "Passing the torch" education event put on by Local 23 Young Workers, and Pensioners committees. We then had a chance to sit down with Brian Skiffington, Zack Pattin, and Local 23 president Dean McGrath, and talk about the ILWU's 10 guiding principals....................This episode could really be called "Zack drops Knowledge bombs", but i don't think he would like that.
After a year of asking to come on the show we finally have time for recently retired ILWU Canada president Mark Gordienko. He joins us to talk about his tenure as president and trustee and shares some stories as a rank and file member. Thank you for your lessons, your insight and your 44 years of service to the ILWU, Mark!
