ILWU Shut Down Terminals at West Coast Ports
The International Longshore and Warehouse Union dockworkers were still causing disruption early Monday morning in terminals at the Los Angeles, Long Beach, Oakland, Seattle and Tacoma
ports. Dockworkers stopped job actions to apply pressure to the PMA's ongoing negotiation. The ILWU is demanding a wage increase of $7.50 per hour for each year proposed. With the dockworkers delaying workflow, instead of 25 to 26 lifts per crane per hour it has declined to 20 lifts.
