A deal has been reached to avert the East Coast Port strike that threatened the jobs of many. For now, the dockworkers union will be given a 30-day contract extension and after the 30 days, the union will meet again to negotiate a long-term contract. The deal was made between the International Longshoremen’s Association and the United States Maritime Alliance. If the deal was not made, all of the ports on the East Coast would have been shut down.
