Labour deal almost struck for New York
The International Longshoremen’s Association (ILA) and the New York Shipping Association (NYSA) have announced a tentative agreement on a six-year local contract for the Port of New York and New Jersey.
The agreement is subject to ratification by ILA members and by the NYSA membership. The United States Maritime Alliance (USMX) and the ILA have also reached a tentative agreement on the master contract in June and each port concluding their local agreements is the next step in the process.
“New York is the largest and in many respects the most complex port on the East and Gulf Coasts. We have reached a tentative agreement that is beneficial to both sides,” said Harold J. Daggett, ILA president and John Nardi, president of NYSA. “We are pleased that we could finalize this by the July 10, 2018 target set after the tentative Master Contract agreement was reached.”
Details of the tentative local New York and New Jersey agreement have not been made available.
