“I am deeply disappointed by PMA’s decision to not conduct vessel work this weekend. This unnecessary weekend lockout will hurt workers and their families, businesses and communities. A deal between both sides seems to be close. I encourage both parties to remain at the table working in good faith to conclude negotiations as soon as possible.”
