Possible Delay In NW Wheat & Corn Shipments To Asia
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The union contract between longshoremen and the companies that operate six grain terminals in the Pacific Northwest expires Sunday, threatening to disrupt the shipment of wheat, corn and soybeans to Asia. Neither side has commented on how the daily talks are going. A spokesman for the Pacific Northwest Grain Handlers Association declined to say if there are plans to boost security or hire replacement workers if there is no deal by Monday.
