International Dockworkers Council (IDC) Concludes Historic Two-Day 9th IDC General Assembly in New Orleans With Unanimous Reelection of Dennis A. Daggett As IDC General Coordinator

NEW ORLEANS, LA. – (May 26, 2022) The International Dockworkers’ Council concluded its 9th IDC General Assembly here today in New Orleans, Louisiana, with the unanimous reelection of International Longshoremen’s Association Leader Dennis A. Daggett as IDC General Coordinator.

“I get to continue serving my two professional passions: the ILA and the IDC,” said Brother Daggett at the conclusion of the two-day Assembly.

This 9th General Assembly drew record numbers of delegates and guests.

“We gather to celebrate the 9th General Assembly of the IDC,” said General Coordinator Daggett in his official greeting to the Assembly. “This assembly stands alone as the single-largest conjunction of Dockworkers’ unions world-wide. As we celebrate our history, we continue to make some, by acknowledging that Dockworkers have never been represented by a force such as the one you stand in the middle of today.”

Kenneth Riley, an ILA Vice President from Charleston, South Carolina, and the IDC’s East Coast Zone Coordinator, served as Assembly chair. Throughout the two-day Assembly, delegates from all IDC’s Zones around the world, heard from dockworker leaders and hammered out resolutions to guide the organization moving forward. The effects of Automation on the lives and livelihoods of dockworkers everywhere and how to apply the ILA’s stance on no automated terminals, became the major theme of the Assembly.
“We are energized and ready to fight,” said General Coordinator Daggett. “This has been a great two-day Assembly. Now, we begin our work.”
