 TWIC Cards

A Transportation Worker Identification Credential, also known as a TWIC Card, is an identification card that uses smart card technology to link the individual to the credential itself. The card is used by individuals who need unescorted access to secure areas of a port, vessel or facility regulated by the Maritime Transportation Security Act such as working at the docks in downtown Toledo or at Johns Manville in Waterville.

TWIC cards are valid all over the country, regardless of where it is obtained. It is a good idea to get a TWIC card especially if you plan on  traveling. Also, members who are not on the book and are already working should consider applying for a TWIC card.

Good Union Members Respect ALL types of job actions

 A good union member is extremely careful when confronted with any type of job action.

  • He does not talk. ("Read the sign".)
  • He does not hang around near the job.
  • He reads the picket sign, handbill or banner as he leaves.
  • He knows that once a picket line is established, his business agents and other  union officials are legally gagged and handcuffed from giving advice pertaining to that job. They can only tell him if the picket line is authorized.
  • He does not allow himself to be drawn into conversations with anyone at the job site.

 A Good Union Member Knows His Rights

  • He has the right not to work behind any type of job action.
  • He has the right to decide for himself whether to walk off a job.
  • He understands that his trade may be under attack next.
  • He knows that a two-gate system means a picket line and he has the right not to work, no matter how many gates the employer sets up. 


Please read the following: 

Which side are you on?

Picketing has been described by the Supreme Court as “the working man’s means of communication.” A picket (or any type of job action) is a message to you that some of your fellow workers are engaged in a labor dispute and need your help. It is your constitutional right as an
American citizen to decide how you will respond. Under the law your union cannot help you make that decision. You can seek guidance only from your conscience, and then decide.

“Which Side Am I On?”
