Port deal rejected as strikes loom at SoCal ports

Published February, 12 2013

After agreeing to a tentative deal Dec. 4 and effectively ending an 8-day strike that held thousands of truckers away from work, the Port of Long Beach and Port of L.A. clerical workers union has now rejected the contract terms, voting Feb. 6 to not accept the initial agreement.

A federal mediator had intervened in December to try to bring the ports and the union to an collective bargaining deal.
