New Union Hall for ILA Local 1414

It's a proud day for the International Longshoremen's Association Local 1414. They broke ground on a new union hall right next to their old one on East Lathrop Avenue. The 28,000-square-foot building has been in the works for more than a decade.

"It only shows what can be accomplished when you come together as one," said Local 1414 president Benjamin Bryan. "What I want to do now is recognize our members who sacrificed and paid dues to have this thing come to pass."

ILA Local 1414's new union hall is expected to be finished next spring.
