Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Wayne Moisio, nicknamed Waino, was an amateur boxer and longtime International Longshore and Warehouse Union, Local 19 member. He participated in the 1934 Pacific Coast Maritime Strike at the "Battle at Smith Cove" that almost completely shut down merchant access in the area. He was known for blocking train access on the Seattle Waterfront during the event and was nicknamed the "Train Stopper" as a result. The strike was in response to the port leadership's failure to comply with the National Industrial Recovery Act and the protection of collective bargaining rights for unions. Moisio was also a member of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union Pacific Coast Pensioner's association and attended many conventions and gatherings hosted by the association.
