Give us your children's impressionable minds and we'll give them jobs. That was the deal struck this week between the local longshoremen's union and Long Beach and Los Angeles school districts.

Strip away all the statistics on worker productivity, all the talk about an honest day's work for an honest day's pay, and what happened at Southern Pacific's huge rail yard in Wilmington boils down to this: Stephanie Fortune has a job and Robert (Rake) Wargo doesn't; Linda Pitchford is earning a paycheck and Eddie Greenwood is facing bankruptcy. "I've got $81 in my pocket and $141 in a checking account," says Greenwood. "I'm struggling to put gas in my car, to buy milk for my kids."

A federal judge in Los Angeles late Friday issued a temporary restraining order against the 50,000-member International Longshoremen's and Warehousemen's Union to block its threatened one-day walkout Monday at West Coast ports.

With a labor dispute threatening to cause a one-day walkout at West Coast ports, the Los Angeles City Council on Friday agreed to ask Southern Pacific Transportation Co. to reconsider its plans to replace 340 longshoremen with other workers. Last month, the railroad announced that it will not renew a contract with a harbor area company that employs International Longshoremen and Warehousemen Union workers to load port containers onto trains.

The U.S. Supreme Court has refused to hear claims by a group of local dockworkers that the Los Angeles-Long Beach longshoremen's union engaged in favoritism and nepotism to fill 387 jobs sought by 22,000 applicants in 1984. The court's decision, taken without comment on Tuesday, lets stand lower court rulings on behalf of the International Longshoremen's and Warehousemen's Union, Locals 13 and 63, and the Pacific Maritime Assn.

Shippers at the Los Angeles and Long Beach harbors filed a grievance against the International Longshoremen's and Warehousemen's Union, Local 13, for a walkout that closed down the nation's busiest harbor Wednesday night. The action by the Pacific Maritime Assn. alleges the longshoremen violated their contracts with an illegal 13-hour strike that began after two investigators for the district attorney's office tried to arrest a union member for nonpayment of child support.
