Troop Movements in California

RUMOR that reserves in Western States being called up to break Longshoreman's strike and lock out in Seattle, Oakland, Long Beach and San Diego.
Can anyone confirm all night troops movements from Travis Airforce base? Seems like Reserves from as far away as Arizona are being called up this Labor Day weekend to act as strikebreakers on the docks of Seattle, Oakland, Long Beach and San Diego. The Longshoreman are about to go on strike, and feel this will be a real test of Union resolution and strength. I certainly hope Congressman Dennis Kucinich who is a true voice of the working man and woman finds himself on the California West Coast. When its just too quiet that's when it's time to stay in awareness. MICHELLESURA@MAC.COM

I just spoke to Steve Stallone, communications director for the ILWU. In this short sound bite, he confirms that Naval strikebreakers are assembling in San Diego to scab at docks along the West Coast in the event of a lockout.
