BALTIMORE (AP) - An arbitrator has ordered a longshoremen’s local union to pay $3.8 million in damages for a three-day strike at the Port of Baltimore that he said violated a no-strike provision in their contract.

The president of the Steamship Trade Association of Baltimore, which represents port employers, confirmed Wednesday that the arbitrator issued the ruling last week. But Michael Angelos declined further comment, citing the sensitivity of ongoing negotiations with the union.

It was not immediately clear to whom the money would be paid or whether the union could appeal. Local president Riker “Rocky” McKenzie declined comment Wednesday.

Local 333 of the International Longshoremen’s Union went on strike for three days in October, paralyzing the port, one of the largest on the East Coast. The arbitrator had previously ruled the strike invalid.

Different 333 than the defunct OS/tankerman’s union in NY I’m thinking?

There’s got to be some sort of connection there… There just has to be!

Totally different unions, Balt. longshoremen belong to The ILA. The 333 number is most likely a coincidense.
The tugboat union and the ILA are not associated .

There is no connection. However 333 striking in Baltimore had nothing to do with pay or contracts but all about McKenzie’s son being fired for testing positive for drugs in a random drug test.

There is no connection.
The 333 strike had nothing to do with contracts and pay but all to do with union members testing positive on a random drug test.
