During a November 13th radio interview on KCRW News discussing the congestion in the ports of LA/LB, the ILWU admitted to slowing down.
The interview is mostly 2 PR guys spinning their respective positions, but near the end Craig Merrilees admits that longshoremen are working slowly and explains that is their way of demonstrating their dissatisfaction and frustration related to the progress of the negotiations, and port congestion.
It is what it is.
Mean while back at the ranch, the negotiators are negotiating, although it is hard to tell when everything is secret except for the income of longshoremen and the fact they have $1 prescription co-pays.
PMA should stop trying to do selective negotiating using their press releases and get down to business.
PMA should implement their last and final offer and/or lock the gates.
It will all be over in 2 weeks.
