Tax the Port to Fund Our Public Schools!
Teachers and port workers unite to celebrate May Day and continue the ﬁght for the schools our students deserve! Join the International Longshore Workers’ Union to defend port jobs and properly fund our public schools. The port of Oakland is the economic engine of our city, but it is not taxed at all, ,while other US ports are taxed and contribute to education funding.. Meanwhile, our schools are starved of the resources students need to learn and grow and threatened with closure! Rally 11AM at Howard Terminal (Market st. and Embarcadero), 1:30 at 1000 Broadway (OUSD), and 2pm at Oscar Grant Plaza.
