Speaking of the ILWU, the contract expired last night. As expected, the two sides have not reached an agreement and are still negotiating.

While the World Socialist Web Site demands rank and file ILWU members call for a strike vote, it is unlikely the union will do so.

The Pacific Maritime Association (PMA), representing employers, and the ILWU issued a joint statement on June 14th indicating they were not planning any work stoppages or lockouts. Additionally, the US Labor Secretary checks in with both sides weekly and receives assurances negotiations are moving forward.

We remain hopeful an agreement will be reached without disruption
