WASHINGTON — A group of 20 apparel and footwear chief executives sent a letter to President Obama Friday, urging him to take immediate steps to restore full operation at the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, where a strike has shut down most activity ahead of the crucial holiday season.
Calling the work stoppages at the nation’s busiest port complex “dire,” the executives — all members of the American Apparel & Footwear Association — expressed “grave concern” about the potential impact on their businesses and the broader economy, in their request for help from the federal government.
