Picketing To Resume Outside Port Of Vancouver

By Jim McCoy Thu 28th February Newslabor disputelongshoremanPort of Vancouver
Longshoremen who have been locked out of their jobs at a Pacific Northwest grain terminal have resumed picketing while they await the replacement workers who are expected to load an export ship. Pat McCormick, a spokesman for the Pacific Northwest Grain Handlers Association, says it is possible that United Grain will resume operations Thursday with replacement workers. The website marinetraffic.com shows a bulk carrier named the Long Beach on the Columbia River outside the Port of Vancouver, Wash. United Grain implemented the lockout Wednesday, saying it took the action because a union leader sabotaged company equipment. The International Longshore & Warehouse Union responded that the company has not shown the evidence to support its allegation. The union wants to resume contract talks next week.
