The Federation and Mediation Conciliation Service (FMCS) has advised that The International Longshoremen’s Association (ILA) and the Maritime Alliance has reached an agreement late Friday night 2/1/13.
This agreement has now alleviated the threat of a strike on all East Coast Ports.
We are therefore happy to report that there will be NO STRIKE today or for the coming years (as the contract is in effect for the next six (6) years) Shipments will continue as normal.
Have a very pleasant and blessed day.
Thank you and best regards,
Gold Coast Shipping
