FROM THIS EPISODE

Negotiating teams on the side of longshoremen and management at the Ports of LA and Long Beach sat down this week for the first time in several weeks. Truck drivers are also trying to unionize at the ports. Workers who handle billions of dollars of cargo have been working since July without a contract, and negotiations over a new one became heated this fall. And those aren’t the only labor issues we’re seeing at America’s busiest cargo entryway. Joe Mathews is California Columnist for Zocalo Public Square, and Karen Robes Meeks covers the ports for the Long Beach Press-Telegram. They spoke to KCRW's Steve Chiotakis.
