Nice JOC puff piece about the chassis situation in the Ports of New York and New Jersey.
No one is talking about chassis on the West Coast because Big Bob ordered his ILWU mechanics NOT to cause any problems.
ILWU mechanics have been ordered to not question any truck driver who says his chassis is “company” owned, which makes the chassis exempt from the mandatory ILWU roadability inspection.
The chassis issue is like most problems that go away by themselves, they also come back by themselves.
I predict the chassis issue will be back for the 2019 negotiations.
