LA ports reopening after crippling strike



Published: Wed, December 5, 2012 @ 11:08 a.m.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Work is resuming at the Los Angeles and Long Beach harbors after settlement of a strike that crippled the nation's busiest container port complex for more than a week.

Los Angeles port spokesman Phillip Sanfield says gates at 10 closed terminals reopened Wednesday morning. Dockworkers will soon begin servicing at least 13 cargo ships that were stuck at the docks or at anchor.

Clerical workers who claimed shippers are outsourcing their jobs walked out last week and union dockworkers refused to cross their picket lines.

A tentative agreement to end the strike was reached late Tuesday after federal mediators arrived.

The union says it won new protections against outsourcing but details haven't been released.
