Negotiations between USMX and ILA

The implication of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service in the negotiations on a new Master Contract between the United States Maritime Alliance (USMX) and the International Longshoremen’s Association (ILA) led to an extension of the deadline through to Dec 29. 

The next meeting is scheduled for Dec 10 & 11 in Newark, NJ. If an agreement is not reached by Dec 29, strikes could possibly impact all ports from Maine to Texas.
