Potential U.S. East Coast Port Strike on Agenda

Press Release
Tuesday, August 28, 2012

Possible ports shutdown at the end of September to be addressed at upcoming Inland Port Logistics Conference informs UBM Global Trade.

Current longshore labor negotiations are a hot issue being closely followed by the shipping industry in the U.S. and globally. The Journal of Commerce announce that it will add a session to the agenda of its Inland Port Logistics Conference, Sept 5-6, in Oak Brook, IL, covering this volatile and unpredictable negotiation that impacts everyone from railroads to third-party logistics providers to beneficial cargo owners. 

Responding to the recent breakdown in talks between the International Longshoremen's Association and United States Maritime Alliance, National Retail Federation President and CEO Matthew Shay said there's "a real risk of disruption." And ILA President Harold Daggett left little optimism for BCOs and other industry interests when he warned on Aug. 22, "It looks like we're going to have a strike."

The topic – "East and Gulf Coast Longshore Negotiations: Where Are They Headed?" — will feature analysis and Q&A from JOC Senior Editor Joseph Bonney, who has covered the issue extensively in recent months.
