Update on the ILA and USMX Conflict


The International Longshoreman's Association and the U.S. Maritime Alliance say they made enough progress in talks with a federal mediator this week to agree to a 90-day contract extension, averting a threatened strike to begin on October 1 by some 14,500 workers at 14 ports on the East Coast and Gulf Coast.

“This is certainly a positive development for all who depend on international trade,” says John Nikolich, procurement director at Odyssey Logistics & Technology (OL&T). “We hope that a formal agreement will be reached in the months to come so that port operations along the East and Gulf coasts can continue without interruption or congestion.”

The contract extension is set to expire on December 29.
