This link has news about the rally, and background information on this issue in the harbor.
The rally was huge, with the ILWU, family, and supporters turning out to show their strength. The flat caps were out in force, and in the middle of the rally, a row of trucks showed up in solidarity. People weren't expecting this, and they pumped each other up.
Negotiations between PMA and the union continue, and short reports to the truckersunite list indicate that people are itching to find out if there's going to be a strike. This reader's uninformed perception is that a strike is unlikely, even though their contract is up. If there were one, though, it threatens to slow down not only the harbor, but the truck routes as well.
