It is not explicitly stated which group of workers the union represents, though the industrial action at the ferry terminal and docks would suggest they represent maritime and/or transport workers.
Events of Liberty City Stories
In 1998, the ferry service between Portland and Staunton Island is under threat due to construction of the Porter Tunnel and Callahan Bridge. After failing to receive assurances from mayor Roger C. Hole that the service would continue, the workers, led by union leader Jane Hopper, take industrial action, setting up picket lines at the Portland Docks and Harwood Ferry Terminal. The ferry strike leaves Portland isolated from the rest of Liberty City. Following Driving Mr Leone, the ferry strike ends and the picket lines at the terminal and docks disperse, with the workers moving their picket to the entrance to the Shoreside Lift Bridge in Staunton Island, isolating Shoreside Vale from the rest of the city. Following Love on the Rocks, the strike finally ends after new mayor Miles O'Donovan assures the ferry workers that the ferry service will continue to operate in the city.
- Jane Hopper is the principal leader of the union. Despite publicly stating she is in support of the workers, privately Hopper appears to be corrupt and only interested in bribing city officials in order to substantially increase wages.
- Three other unnamed union leaders appear in the mission Frighteners.
