Californian ports hit by truckers strike
Operations at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach were temporarily halted yesterday by drayage truck strikes over claims of unfair labour practices.
These strikes, which have been organised by the Justice for Port Drivers group and began earlier this week, are the fourth such strikes in the past 11 months, and are said to be a “dramatic escalation” from prior actions.
In a statement released on its website, the group said: “
The Port of Long Beach (POLB) was also affected temporarily by longshoremen walking off the job yesterday, but a spokesperson told PS: “Overall, cargo flowed through the port normally, including by truck.”
Justice for Port Drivers said it will continue to strike truck yards and marine terminals indefinitely until it meets with the trucking companies.
“We’re hoping that the parties get together to resolve the issue soon,” Mr Sanfield added.
