Associations Urge West Coast Port Labor Agreement

A group of 60 associations, including the North American Meat Association, is urging West Coast port authorities to reach a new labor agreement to avoid delayed shipments. The associations in a letter to the International Longshore and Warehouse Union and the Pacific Maritime Association said, “a new contract must be finalized soon in order to allay growing concerns of thousands of businesses who rely on West Coast ports for orderly and timely supply chain operations.” The contract being negotiated coves 20,000 longshore workers at 30 West Coast ports.
