In a positive sign that the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) and the Pacific Maritime Association (PMA) are finding common ground, comes the July 26th announcement from the ILWU that the two sides “reached a tentative agreement on health benefits, subject to other issues in the negotiations.”  The previous agreement expired on July 1, 2022 and talks that began on May 10 are continuing. The ILWU has been working with the PMA and the Biden administration, which has intervened heavily in the negotiations, to keep workers on the job and prevent work stoppages.
