As Port Strike Deadline Approaches Obama Pressured To Use Taft-Hartley

UPDATE 1:10PM EST: There has been a 30 day extension to the ILA contract postponing the strike.

At 12:01 am on December 30th 14 ports from Boston to Houston will close as members of the International Longshoremen Association (ILA) covering the the East and Gulf coasts go on strike. At issue is whether Longshoremen will continue to get the per-container royalty payments previously agreed to by management.
