ICTSI has issued a statement severely criticising the ILWU’s escalated industrial action at its Oregon terminal, and claimed that the union made 36 work stoppages during the 2014 holiday period. The ILWU called for a 12-hour work stoppage at the port on Wednesday, it said, and members walked off the job at lunchtime on Thursday. Productivity at the terminal is now 13.2 moves per hour. Before the dispute, which has been running since 2012, productivity was 24.8 moves per hour.

OregonLive wrote a good article on its port issues last month, here.
