ILWU, PMA reach tentative deal on ‘certain key issues’

By April 25, 2023No Comments

The International Longshore and Warehouse Union said in a press release Thursday negotiators had reached a tentative deal on “certain key issues” with the Pacific Maritime Association.

The longshore union did not specify which issues the new tentative agreements cover, and declined to share further comments.

The news marks the first deal publicly announced since July 26, when the two sides said they had reached a tentative agreement on the maintenance of health benefits. Prior to the start of talks in May, port employers had said continuing to offer longshore workers with “world-class wages and benefits” was one of five principles guiding the PMA in contract talks.
