Recent Personal Injury and Car Accident News
The Island State is breathing a sigh of relief that months of failed negotiations
between west coast dock workers (the ILWU) and the vessel and terminal operators (the Pacific Maritime Association)
have finally come to an end. The 2/20/15 pact which reinstated 'normal' operations at many western ports is of
particular importance to the people of Hawaii since we rely in large part on shipping for the health of our economy.
But the ports of the western U.S. had a lot at stake also. They saw container moves drop up to 39%
during November and December 2014 as west coast ocean shipping was diverted to the east coast and to freight forwarders.
Both sides do well to remember that unreliable shipping operations can cause the geese that
lay their golden eggs to migrate to other habitats.
