For the most part, work has resumed at ports along the West Coast.
Last week, the International Longshore and Warehouse Union and their employers reached a tentative labor agreement for 29 West Coast ports.
Bill Wyatt is the executive director of the Port of Portland. He said dozen of ships are waiting to be offloaded at ports from Seattle to Long Beach.
“So this is going to create a mess that will take probably months to work out of,” Wyatt said.
Last week, pressure increased on both the union and employers to reach a deal.
