According to todays reports the Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) has sent a letter urging both parties to continue talks and resolve the dispute before the September 30th deadline.

The last strike here on the East Coast was in 2010 and lasted 2 days.  If the workers choose to strike the week of September 30th there will be additional problems caused by the Columbus Day holiday on the following Monday – October 8th.  The strike will affect ports from Canada down to Texas including New Jersey, Charleston, Savannah, Norfolk and other major ports on the East Coast.  If you are looking for a contingency plan you have to take into account where your shipments are coming from and what route they take to their destination.
