East Coast/US Gulf Strike Action Averted

by on 26 September 2012

The USA East Coast / US Gulf port strike has been deferred ( 90 days ) taking it out now to 29th December.

The International Longshoresmen’s Association and United States Maritime Alliance agreed to a 90 day contract extension, averting a threatened Maine to Texas dock strike at the end of this month.

“The extension will provide the parties an opportunity to focus on the outstanding core issues in a deliberate manner apart  from the pressure of an immediate deadline”. I guess time will tell.

We will keep you advised as always.
