A brief update of the situation on the U.S. West Coast.
Truckers with the Teamsters Union went back to work over the weekend after a 5-day strike at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach.
Meanwhile, labor negotiations continue to progress between the International Longshore & Warehouse Union (ILWU) and the Pacific Maritime Association (PMA)—despite the absence of a formal contract extension.
Mohawk will continue to monitor any developing news on this issue.
