Note Tony Salcido, the son of the well-known longshoreman Cristobal "Chu-Chu" Salcido, was born on May 20, 1929 In Wilmington, California. Tony had many relatives who worked on the waterfront and were active members of ILWU, Local 13. Salcido was already eligible for his associate degree when he decided to pursue extended casual work on the waterfront in Wilmington instead. In August of 1949, Tony Salcido became a Casual Longshoreman (I.D. man) and on December 5, 1951 he became a union member upon being elevated to "A' registration status. Salcido held various positions including working in the ship holds, winch operator, foreman, crane operator, International executive board member, a member of various other councils and committees and secretary and treasurer of Local 13. During the mid-1980's Salcido injured his back while working on the waterfront, which limited his involvement as a union leader. Tony Salcido retired in November of 1994 at the age of 65. He still remains active in the union by attending the ILWU Pacific Coast Pensioners' Association Convention every year and regular membership meetings.
