BALTIMORE - Crews who man the Port of Baltimore are going back to work—at least temporarily.
Aaron Barnett, vice president of the International Longshoremen’s Association Local 333, confirmed the union has agreed to a 90-day “cooling off” period.
All of the workers are going back to the port, effectively immediately, on the condition of union representatives meeting with management at least once a week for the next 90 days.
The union believes they had a lawful strike because management would not meet their demands for workplace safety, Barnett said.
