ABSTRACT
The article reflects on the salary received by executives of the International Longshoremen's Association (ILA) in the U.S. It states that about 24 ILA officials earn more than AFL-CIO president John Sweeney. It compares the compensation at ILA officials with that of the West Coast's International Longshore and Warehouse Union. The Longshore Workers Coalition (LWC) attributes the decline in union finances to salaries and other spending.
