About Us

The Inlandboatmen’s Union of Pacific, Marine Division of ILWU, represents workers on the West Coast including Alaska and Hawaii. IBU members work on a variety of vessels, including ferries, tugboats and barges, dredges, tour boats, water taxis, and more. We represent shoreside workers including ticket sellers, traffic and terminal attendants, terminal agents, warehouse workers, barge lashers, environmental cleanup techs, maintenance workers, and dispatchers.

Founded in 1918, the IBU prides itself on being one of the most democratic unions in the nation.  We represent the most efficient crews in our industry. The IBU is the largest inland union representing mariners on the West Coast. It is a democratic, politically active organization dedicated to protecting the membership’s wages, benefits and working conditions.
