West Coast Dockworkers Approve New 6-Year Labor Contract

Top News / August 31, 2023

Dockworkers on the U.S. West Coast have voted to ratify a tentative contract agreement reached in June with port employers represented by the Pacific Maritime Association (PMA), the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) announced Thursday.

The new six-year contract covers workers at all 29 West Coast ports represented by the PMA and is retroactive from July 1, 2022.

The vote brings to an end more than a year of uncertainty that has had major impacts on the U.S. container shipping market as the two sides failed to reach an agreement for nearly a year after the previous contract expired.
