Maersk reporting:

Dear Customer,

On Thursday, April 6, at 5:00 pm Pacific Standard Time, ILWU Local 13 crane operators and top handler drivers decided to reject their job assignments that were ordered by the employers for the evening’s second shift, impacting all Los Angeles and Long Beach terminals.

As a result, no operations were performed on the night shift. Every terminal in the harbor canceled all vessel, yard, rail and gate operations for the night shift with the uncertainty of not knowing if they would be able to resume for Friday's 1st shift.

We are monitoring the situation to see if this is a single-shift event, or if this will continue on Friday, April 7, which is a workday for the ILWU. Easter Sunday, April 9, is a no-work ILWU holiday.

Thursday, April 6 also marked the last day of the ILWU Local 13 President’s term. The new President was sworn in and has begun his term.

The following vessels are impacted:

    • TP6 Maersk Eureka: Alongside – ETD 0500/12th
    • TP8 Maersk Antares: Alongside – ETD 0500/9th
    • Next in line: WCCA Maersk Newcastle – ETA 0800/9th
    • No vessels alongside
    • Next in line – TP2 MSC Livorno: ETA 1800/20th
    • No disruptions were reported at this

The PMA is involved and we expect to have more clarity on the disruption and duration. They are expected to issue a press release on the incident on Friday, April 7.
