NEW YORK — Members of the International Longshoremen’s Association (ILA) have "overwhelmingly" approved a new master contract with the U.S. Maritime Alliance (USMX), the alliance said April 10. The contract covers some 14,500 workers at East and Gulf coast ports.

The USMX, which represents employers of the East and Gulf Coast longshore industry, is scheduled to vote on the ratification agreement April 17. The six-year contract was tentatively agreed upon in mid-March (, March 14).

In addition, ILA workers at the Port of New York and New Jersey, the largest on the East Coast, ratified a new local contract with the New York Shipping Association by a three-to-one vote, the USMX said.
