Major West Coast ports experiencing shutdowns

Biden Administration asked to mediate contract negotiations.

A breakdown in longshore contract negotiations has led to work stoppages at major West Coast ports, effectively shutting down or delaying operations at the Port of Oakland, Port of Long Beach and the Port of Los Angeles. While some operations have resumed, the latest disruptions come as the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) and the Pacific Maritime Association (PMA) have failed to reach and ratify a new labor agreement following more than a year of negotiations.
