West Coasts Ports Labor Talks Make Progress

Washington, D.C. (February 23, 2023): After more than a year of negotiations on a new collective bargaining agreement, the Pacific Maritime Association (PMA) and International Longshoreman & Warehouse Union (ILWU) issued a joint press release announcing they have reached a tentative agreement on health benefits and other elements of a new agreement. Pressure to reach a deal continues to build due to a decline in shipments to Los Angeles/Long Beach as shippers look to avoid potential labor disruptions to supply chains.
