OAKLAND, Calif. (KRON) — Truck drivers at the Port of Oakland say they will not pick up cargo for the next 7 days in protest of current working conditions at the Port.
The truck drivers say that they are often forced to wait as long as seven hours before they receive their cargo, which they say cuts into their ability to earn a livable wage. Other complaints include not having access to the Port’s restrooms and what the protesting drivers are calling disrespectful treatment by Port employees.
