Here’s some unmitigated good news — a huge victory for a labor/environmental alliance a the Port of Los Angeles that stands an excellent chance of improving air quality around the port while improving living standards for the people who work there. It’ll also put pressure on the nearby Port of Long Beach to follow suit. This is the biggest port in the United States, so it’s obviously a big deal, and a big organizing coup for the good guys — the success of the labor/environmental is great news for the progressive coalition.
