Shutdown Announced for the Port of Oakland for February 19th

Despite the fact that talks between the ILWU and PMA  resumed on Tuesday with the U.S. Secretary of Labor Tom Perez present, officials announced the Port of Oakland would be be closed all day Thursday for a rescheduled union meeting.
The PMA has advised that ILWU Local 10 has announced they will now hold their regular Stop Work Meeting on the first shift of Thursday, February 19th, instead of the usual second shift. Therefore, there will be NO WORK from 08:00 – 17:00 hours, and, since there is no night shift, the port will be effectively shut down on Thursday, February 19th.
 RCL Agencies  will continue to monitor this situation and provide updates once available.
