The union for longshoremen along the East Coast and Gulf of Mexico has agreed to extend its contract for 30 days, averting a possible strike that could have crippled operations at ports that handle about 40 percent of all U.S. container cargo, a federal mediator announced Friday.
Locked-out union workers at American Crystal Sugar said “no” to the company’s contract offer a fourth time on Saturday. Their message is clear: They’d rather stay locked out than accept the contract. They’d rather extend a 16-month lockout than take a contract that, to most observers of the regional labor market, looks pretty good.
