Cooling period ends between Port of Baltimore workers and employers

A 90-day cooling off period between union dock workers at the Port of Baltimore and their employers comes to an end today.

While no deal has been reached, both sides say they are fairly confident there won't be a strike today.

Even so, shippers have started diverting cargo from the Port of Baltimore because of the contract dispute, according to The Baltimore Sun.

Workers at the port went on strike in October because they said management wouldn't meet their demands for workplace safety.

The Maryland Port Administration says the Port of Baltimore has a $3.5 billion yearly impact.
