UPDATE – Pacific West Coast Slowdown

As an update to the ongoing labor negotiations:

  • The two sides remain at the table and intend to continue bargaining the balance of today and throughout tomorrow (Saturday)
  • The ILWU did not issue a public statement in response to the PMA release yesterday
  • Labor was again released for second shift yesterday in Seattle/Tacoma
  • Labor was ordered in Seattle/Tacoma for first shift, they did not show – rather sending a letter to the PMA advising they would remain at the hall for a meeting from 8-10 AM Pacific. Labor returned to work after the meeting. Reports are they are productive and decision has been made to continue operations in Seattle/Tacoma with a re-evaluation mid-afternoon.

We will keep you updated.
