Port deal rejected as strikes loom at SoCal ports

| February 12, 2013

After agreeing to a tentative deal Dec. 4 and effectively ending an 8-day strike that held thousands of truckers away from work, the Port of Long Beach and Port of L.A. clerical workers union has now rejected the contract terms, voting Feb. 6 to not accept the initial agreement.

A federal mediator had intervened in December to try to bring the ports and the union to an collective bargaining deal.

    Please Strike!l! Let people see you for the weak minded individuals you are! I really wish that Dubai Ports and gone through with their deal to build a super port in Baja, Mexico and bypass California and the unions all together. Then again with the widening of the Panama canal it will be no time at all before these wonderful port workers will not have a job anyway!
