The Longview Export Grain Terminal in Washington has reached a new labor agreement with the Local 21 International Longshore and Warehouse Union.
According to local media, negotiations lasted about a month and an agreement was reached smoothly.
The new agreement gives grain shippers more confidence in their supply chain as the previous negotiations 5 years ago left shippers with delays and lengthy disruptions.
