The Joint Coast Labor Relations Committee has agreed to revised Industry Travel Restrictions. Essentially, the new agreement means that Marine Clerks and Longshoremen may now travel within their respective areas (for Southern California Marine Clerks and Longshoremen, for example, that means travel is now authorized between the Ports of Los Angeles/Long Beach, Port Hueneme, and San Diego, but NOT yet authorized to Northern California, Washington/Puget Sound, and Oregon/Columbia River).
