USA Dockworkers: Further Extenstion Negotiated

07/01/2013 10:01:59

With reference to the previous communications on the possible upcoming dockworkers' strike in the USA East Coast, we want to inform you that a new 30-day contract extension has been negotiated between the workers' union (ILA) and the port assoctiation covering the Gulf and East Coast of the USA (USMX).

This new agreement wards off the threats of a possible strike, that would have begun these days and sets a new deadline on next February 6th.

In this period, with the help of the Federal Mediator, the parties will try to finally settle their divergences, many of which have actually been resolved, in order to avoid a new stall.
