2nd shift unexpectedly canceled Thursday, now 1st shift today

Customer Advisory - Update on ILWU disruptive actions in Port of Los Angeles and Long Beach

April 7, 2023

Dear Customer,
On Thursday, April 6, at 5:00 pm Pacific Standard Time, ILWU Local 13 crane operators and top handler drivers decided to reject their job assignments that were ordered by the employers for the evening’s second shift, impacting all Los Angeles and Long Beach terminals.
As a result, no operations were performed on the night shift. Every terminal in the harbor canceled all vessel, yard, rail and gate operations for the night shift with the uncertainty of not knowing if they would be able to resume for Friday 1st shift.
We are monitoring the situation to see if this is a single shift event, or if this will continue on Friday, April 7, which is a workday for the ILWU. Easter Sunday, April 9, is a no work ILWU holiday.
Thursday, April 6 also marked the last day of the ILWU Local 13 President’s term. The new President was sworn in and has begun his term.

The following vessels are impacted:

LOS ANGELES – PIER 400TP6 Maersk Eureka: Alongside – ETD 0500/12th
TP8 Maersk Antares: Alongside – ETD 0500/9th
Next in line: WCCA Maersk Newcastle – ETA 0800/9th
LONG BEACH – TTINo vessels alongside
Next in line – TP2 MSC Livorno: ETA 1800/20th
OAKLAND-No disruptions reported at this

The PMA is involved and we expect to have more clarity on the disruption and duration. They are expected to issue a press release on the incident on Friday, April 7.
