On April 8, some three-dozen Seafarers marched on the grounds of the Washington State Capitol in Olympia, Wash., along with an estimated 12,000 fellow union members and other supporters. The “We Are One” demonstration was believed to have been the largest rally in that state in at least a decade.

 

“Seafarers understand the slogan, ‘An injury to one is an injury to all.’ They understand that the plight of the public-sector employees is not separate from their own,” said SIU Tacoma Port Agent Joe Vincenzo.

 

Photos from the demonstration appear below. The SIU contingent included members OS Rudolfo Jordan, QMED Carl Castagna, AB Luisito Tabada, AB Desta Gebrai, AB Luvertis Alford, AB Tony Kirven, DEU Sam Elia, BREC Greg Agren, SREC Amanda Suncin, SA Hernando Basilan, SREC Manny Basas, DEU Majed Alsharif, SA Marshall Daguio, CC Nasser Ahmed, CC Abdullah Falah, AB Abdulla Ali, EL Nabil Ahmed, AB Ben Picar, CC Ingra Maddox, DEU Raul Ventanilla, SREC Steve Dickson, AB Adam Riley, SREC Paula Kaleikini, OMU Jason Babbitt, AB Sanjay Gupta, CC Jamie Serrano, DEU Virgil Tudorache, CC Julito Crodua, GUDE Henry Egran, AB Rayann Williams, Bosun Chris Tizon Port Agent Vincenzo and Safety Director Ryan Palmer.
