Longshoremen Returning To Work At NJ, NY Ports

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Longshoremen on strike for two days at ports in New Jersey and New York are going back to work.

The New York Shipping Association, an organization representing cargo terminals and terminal operators, says an agreement has been reached to have longshoremen return to work at 7 p.m. Wednesday.

The workers had been off the job since Tuesday, leaving at least a dozen ships waiting to off-load cargo containers and bringing ports in northern New Jersey and New York to a standstill.

The work stoppage stemmed from a dispute between the longshoremen’s union and Fresh Del Monte Produce over the company’s decision to move work from a facility in Camden, N.J., to another one in Gloucester City.
