HAWAII SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
Dear Valued Horizon Customer:
Oakland Port Operations on Tuesday, November 20, 2012
Update #1 08:00 PST
Please be advised Horizon Lines is closely monitoring the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 1021 activities in the Port of Oakland today.
• Currently, SEIU has established ‘informational’ pickets with demonstrators and are set up at the
entrance to Ports America (PAOH), the Horizon Lines gate facility.
• The gates are CLOSED. At present, the ILWU has refused to cross the SEIU demonstration line.
• PAOH has contacted the Pacific Maritime Association (PMA) and an arbitrator will be on site
• Trucks are lined on the street. We recommend holding your Pacific 358S cargo at your own facilities
until we have a clearer picture of today’s operation.
We will keep you updated of any changes.
Thank you for your support.
If you have any questions, please contact your Horizon Lines Sales Representative
or Customer Service at 1-877-678-7447.
Thank you for choosing Horizon Lines. Always There. Always Delivering.®
