West Coast ILWU Contract – Finally Some News

If you’re wondering why our news on the West Coast ILWU contract negotiations hasn’t been updated since July, there’s a good reason.  It’s because there has been very little substantive news on these talks since then.

The West Coast ILWU Contract Expires July 1st

Just about a year ago we published the last in a series of news stories about the negotiations of the East and Gulf Coast Longshoremen’s contracts. It took more than five months to reach agreement on the new contract, which will expire on September 30, 2018.

Commodities and Currencies

The US Dollar, along with supply and demand, are the components that have the biggest impact on commodity pricing. The US Dollar Index softened a bit to 81.44 and one Euro is worth $1.33.
