• Jennifer Smith at the Wall Street Journal reports that Dockworkers to Resume Contract Talks with East, Gulf Coast Ports. Contract negotiation talks stalled in December and begun again, with a September 2018 deadline. Ms. Smith wrote, “The talks are being rekindled after pressure from shippers and businesses whose supply chains face disruption if port operations should slow or shut down during the fall peak shipping season. Groups that represent retail, food and beverage, agriculture and logistics operators sent a letter last week urging both sides to resume negotiations and threatening to reroute shipments to West Coast ports as a contingency plan.” We will keep our eye on it and report on any updates.
