Some shippers have reportedly begun diverting cargo from the port of Baltimore due to uncertainty about the ongoing labor contract standoff with the largest dockworkers' union, despite assurances there won't be another strike or a lockout.

Members of Local (LOCM) 333 of the International Longshoremen's Association met Thursday night to discuss the latest local contract proposed by the Steamship Trade Association, which represents port employers, but did not vote on the proposed contract, officials said.

The union went on strike in October, ceasing port operations for three days, until a federal arbitrator ordered a 90-day cooling-off period.
