This is by way of Michael Munk, a (very) long-time labor activist in Portland.

Munk notes that the Portland ILWU is a conservative one. He also notes that black workers weren't accepted into the local til 1963. Good old liberal Portland!! http://www.wweek.com/portland/article-18306-dreadlocks_vs_hardhats.html
