The Harbor Employers Association released the following statement regarding the status of contract negotiations with the International Longshore and Warehouse Union Local 63 Office Clerical Unit (OCU):
Some media outlets have reported incorrectly that OCU workers at just three harbor employers had failed to ratify the tentative agreements that were reached on December 4, 2012, that ended the workers' seven-day ports strike. In fact, the harbor employers were formally notified by the union today that, in voting on Wednesday night, all 16 OCU bargaining units failed to ratify the December 4 tentative agreements.
The ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach continue to operate normally.
