Video: L.A. port truck drivers go on 24-hour strike

Port truck drivers at the Port of Los Angeles went on a 24-hour strike yesterday against their employer, Green Fleet Systems, at the start of the 5 p.m. shift. They are striking to protest harassment and intimidation by company management, all unfair labor practices. The drivers are in the midst of a union organizing drive. This short video shows the beginning of the strike with workers getting their picket signs.
