ILA Contract Expires
October 1, 2012 @ 8:00 am - September 30, 2018 @ 11:55 pm
It has been a long time since we have experienced a strike here on the East Coast however we never forget what occurred here and in The Gulf ports due to the delayed negotiations between the ILA and US Maritime Alliance back in 2012-2013. The only good thing (sort of) to come out of those negotiations was a 6 year contract. Unfortunately we are now on year 5 and the contract is set to expire September 30, 2018. As of now both sides are talking about starting the discussions earlier as well as a long term extension. We will continue to monitor the situation and keep you updated as information is available.
