Port Security Labor Negotiations Successful, Strike Averted
Negotiations between the Port of Portland and the 25-member security force for the Port’s marine terminals have ended with a tentative contract agreement. This agreement averts a planned strike that would have shut down the Port’s marine terminals 2, 4 and 6.
“We are very pleased that an agreement was reached,” said Port Executive Director Bill Wyatt. “The Port feels its contract proposal was not only fair but generous.”
Next steps in the process will include a union vote to ratify the agreement after which the Port Commission will formally review and approve the new contract.
