The International Longshoremen’s Association relocated its headquarters to North Bergen, N.J., from the union’s longtime home in lower Manhattan.
The union’s offices now are in the headquarters of Local 1804-1, home local of new ILA President Harold Daggett. The ILA’s Atlantic Coast District, covering ports from Maine to Virginia, made an identical move in 2009.
The ILA was among the few maritime- entities remaining in lower Manhattan, once the shipping industry’s hub. Much of 17 Battery Place, the office building that housed the ILA’s headquarters for 50 years, has been converted to residential use.
