Tag: Passing of Capt. Josh Williams founder of the ILWU Local 10 Drill Team
International Longshore and Warehouse Union members both active and retired are mourning the loss of Josh Williams, founder and captain emeritus of the legendary ILWU Local 10 Drill Team. Brother Williams, who became a member of the union in 1959, organized the Drill Team fifty years ago. The Drill Team participated in one of the first United Farm Workers marches led by Cesar Chavez in 1966. Josh has been retired approximately 20 years as a longshoreman.
