On July 9, 2013 ILWU Local 10 mechanics and MFOW mechanics at the APL terminal in Oakland protested the violation of their contracts by APL which has transferred their work to the SSA terminal next to APL. The protest began just before 7:30 a.m. when ILWU Local 10 longshoremen blocked berths where trucks deliver and pick up supplies at berths 57-59, located along Middle Harbor Road at the port. Workers fear a loss of jobs if port tenants are let out of their leases at the port's terminals. A local arbitrator ruled midmorning that no "bona fide" reason existed for the picket line and ordered the workers back to their jobs, according to Robert Bernardo, the communications manager for the Port of Oakland but workers continued to picket. ILWU Local 10 longshore workers were also angry that the Port Of Oakland Board of Directors who are appointed by Democratic Mayor Jean Quan called an emergency meeting on Bloody Thursday July 5, 2013 when the ILWU was commemorating the death of two workers in 1934 in their fight to get a union hiring hall and a union contract.
Some workers felt that the port board wanted to get a stadium on port land and were kowtowing to developers in the transformation of the port away from maritime jobs. They also were concerned that SSA monopolization of the port would threaten the rights and conditions of ILWU longshore workers.
