Strike at the Port of Los Angeles and Port of Long Beach Continues
Both sides were negotiating again all day Sunday and into the night. They have agreed to resume bargaining Monday morning at 10:00 a.m. PST.
Picketing by the OCU continues at 10 of 14 marine terminals at PoLA and PoLB. ILWU longshore locals are continuing to honor the OCU pickets; operations remain completely shut down at those terminals.
The major issue with the OCU is the language in the contract allowing outsourcing of jobs. The OCU has been offered increases of $30K more to $195K/year.
11 ships that were due to dock over the weekend have been diverted.
A detailed list from CBP in Los Angeles of the ships that have been diverted due to the OCU walkout was emailed yesterday to our customers. (Please contact your OL&T CSR if you would like this information.)
In our next update, we will include more insight on OL&T’s position and suggest what steps you might take to protect prepare yourself as the days go by without a resolution.
