The International Longshoremen's Association (ILA) and the New York Shipping Association reached a tentative agreement last week for their local contract negotiations for the New York/New Jersey ports. Once the local contract is ratified by the ILA members, the master contract agreement covering all East and Gulf Coast ports may also be ratified, avoiding the threat of work stoppages due to labor negotiations. The local contract agreement will be reviewed by the union representatives next week in Tampa, Florida and a vote is planned to take place the following week.
