The port workers on the US West Coast and their employers have been in conflict since July 1st, and following a three day break the parties are now ready to resume the negotiations, according to a statement on the website of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union -ILWU. Together with the PMA - the Pacific Maritime Association - the union is calling for new terms in a contract for the workers, compared to the old contract which expired on July 1st.

"The parties have resumed negotiations following a three-day break during which the ILWU was engaged in an unrelated negotiation in the Pacific Northwest. We plan on negotiating into the weekend. Although there is currently no contract in place, both parties have pledged to keep cargo moving," says the ILWU.
