Dockworkers, Shippers Settle Contract

West Coast dockworkers and their employer reached a tentative contract agreement this week after four months of negotiations.

Details of the new six-year contract will not be released until rank-and-file members of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union ratify the agreement. Longshore delegates are meeting in mid-August to review the terms and decide whether to proceed with a full vote by the ILWU’s 26,000 longshore members.

More information appears in the Daily Breeze story.
