The members of I.L.A. Local 1351 welcome you to our website. This local has been providing labor to the maritime industry since 1934. On June 8, 2014 we will celebrate our 80th Anniversary. We provide labor in the form of Marine Clerks, Checkers, Weighers, Tallymen, Timekeepers, and Inspectors for our employers. We tally, check, and inspect the various types of freight that is unloaded or loaded from trucks and/or railcars to be loaded onto ships or that has been discharged from ships. In today's maritime industry the main focus is the maritime container that has replaced the general or loose cargo that was primarily loaded on ships for years. The maritime container has provided for a more safe and secure means of transport of freight. This local has been at the front of this technological revolution in training our personnel to adapt to this new technology. We employ approximately 300 people in these various jobs. We are an equal opportunity employer.
