Posted on January 29th, 2016

The New York Times reports that longshoremen in New York and New Jersey walked off the job on Friday, January 29, a move that “surprised many involved in the operation of the ports, according to officials, and the reasons behind the move were not immediately clear.” Midmorning on Friday, January 29,  the Port of New York and New Jersey said on its Twitter feed, “There is an apparent labor walk off at all PONYNJ terminals. No truck operations at this time,” and soon after added, “Due to the current work stoppage in the port, no new trucks will be allowed to queue on port roadways. Do not send trucks to the Port at this time.”
