On Monday January 26th, 2015 The International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) and The Pacific Maritime Association (PMA) reached a tentative agreement on the issue of repairing and maintaining the chassis that are vital to moving cargo containers in and out of Los Angeles, Long Beach and other West Coast ports. PMA spokesman Steve Getzug said on Monday that the tentative agreement was reached, but that no further details will be released at this time.
Jon Slangerup, chief executive at the Port of Long Beach, praised the tentative agreement reached on chassis saying, “This is very good news, hopefully this is the breakthrough that will lead to a final agreement between the PMA and ILWU. We need a settlement so that labor and management can focus once again on moving cargo quickly and reliably.”
