Strike by longshoremen hits Baltimore port: reports – Yahoo News

Cargo operations at the port of Baltimore were hobbled on Wednesday by a longshoremen’s strike after contract negotiations stalled, according to local media reports.

“The strike is affecting all cargo at the port,” Richard Scher, a spokesman for the Maryland Port Administration, told the Baltimore Sun.

The strike by the International Longshoremen’s Association Local 333 began Wednesday morning with groups of strikers gathering around port entrances carrying signs that read, “No contract, no work,” the Sun reported.
