Truckers remain waiting while port strikes continue

| December 03, 2012

While thousands of truckers remain halted due to continuing strikes at ports in Southern California, negotiations continue this week between the Los Angeles and Long Beach Harbor Employers Associations and the International Longshore and Warehouse Union Local 63 Office Clerical Unit. The Port of Long Beach had just three container terminals operational and open, while the Port of Los Angeles had only one.

    Your strike is imposing on my economic well being. In this economy be
    glad to have a job. Be grateful for a paycheck that does not bounce.
    So sick of all these Union “issues” and mostly over greed. This strike
    is messing up the rail and port system. Not just in LA but here in
    Dallas and throughout the country. 4 days and there is a mess. I had
    to see a week from now. Divert the ships and let the rails roll. We
    need to move this freight. If those folks don’t want to work; then quit
    and make room for folks who do.
