AAFA Urges Sides to Agree to Extension of West Coast Port Labor Contract

AAFA joined 120 organizations in sending a letter applauding the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) and Pacific Maritime Association (PMA) for agreeing to early discussions on a contract extension. The letter also applauds PMA (the employers) for proposing a three-year contract extension offer, and urges ILWU members (the longshoremen) to accept the offer when they vote on the proposal later this summer. The current West Coast port labor contract expires July 1, 2019.
