J. BLAINE ANDERSON, Circuit Judge:
Eagle, et al. (hereafter "crewmembers" and/or "union" and/or collectively referred to as
"class members") appeal from the district court's dismissal of their complaint under
Fed.R.Civ.P. 12(b)(6) for failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted. The
class members argue that the district court erred in concluding that they were not the
proper parties to sue for damages as a result of Star-Kist's, etc., (hereafter
"canneries") alleged antitrust violations.
