ILWU membership ratifies new collective bargaining agreement 2017-08-14

In a previous news bulletin Milgram reported that the International Longshore Workers Union (representing thousands of dockworkers at ports throughout the United States) were turning to their membership to vote on whether or not their union should adopt a new collective agreement negotiated on their behalf with a group of maritime employers.
We are happy to report that that the union membership voted in favour and that the agreement was ratified on August 4th.
The general expectation is that this will bring an extended period of labour peace at the twenty-nine American ports where union members provide dockside services.
