Tentative agreement paves the way for labour peace at ports along U.S. West Coast 2017-07-31

In a laudable move that has the potential to provide a five year period of quiet at ports along the U.S. West Coast, the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) is due to vote soon on ratification of a collective bargaining agreement (CBA) that has been under negotiation for over one year.
 
The ILWU has in the past been involved in turbulent labour relations with port management companies and steamship lines that have on occasion led to supply chain paralysis affecting importers and exporters in the USA (including an especially bitter and prolonged case in 2002).
 
The union is due to announce the results of the vote on August 4th; both American Shipper and JOC.com published articles on the topic today.
