On behalf of our more than 200 members and Casuals, welcome to I.L.A. Local 1771's new website, an integral part of an innovative scheduling, dispatching and communications programming package called RapidDispatch.

Local 1771 was the driving force behind the development of this cutting-edge, cloud-based computer program designed specifically for the ILA and, as such, is the first Local to make the multitude of benefits and services provided by RapidDispatch available to its members and dispatchers. Combining computer, internet and cell phone technology puts Local 1771 at the industry's forefront, improving the way the ILA works both now and in the future.

Local 1771, founded in Charleston, on June 9, 1950, provides Marine Clerks, Chief Clerks, Timekeepers, Checkers, Weighers, TIR Clerks, Tallymen and Inspectors for all stevedoring companies including cruise vessels doing business in one of the nation's busiest sea ports.
