AND THEY’RE OFF….

November, 2016

The International Longshore & Warehouse Union (ILWU) and the Pacific Maritime Association (PMA) will sit down today and tomorrow to discuss an early contract extension.  The current contract expires June 30, 2019…a mereilwu-in-action-oakland 2.5 years from now.

Given the turmoil we encountered during the last contact negotiation, all stakeholders as well as the US Congress are pushing for a speedy and amicable extension.
