WASHINGTON — A consortium of shipping companies and terminal operators, and a labor group of East and Gulf Coast dockworkers, reached a tentative agreement on a master contract late Friday, averting a strike that could have impacted millions of dollars in apparel, textile and footwear imports.
The Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service said the U.S. Maritime Alliance (USMX), representing the container carriers and marine terminal operators at 14 ports from Maine to Texas, and the International Longshoremen’s Association, representing 15,000 members, have tentatively agreed to a final contract after 10 months of negotiations.
