The United States Fashion Industry Association (USFIA) joined a multi-industry letter to the International Longshoremen’s Association (ILA) and United States Maritime Alliance (USMX) urging them to resume master contract negotiations at the East and Gulf Coast ports. The current contract expires September 2018. More than 100 organizations signed the letter, which explains that failure to resume negotiations soon could result in disruptions and cargo diversions.
