Union, grain terminal operators end contract talks

VANCOUVER, Wash. -- Contract talks broke down Friday between representatives of union dockworkers and three Pacific Northwest grain terminal operators who returned to the bargaining table for the first time in months.
A bargaining session previously scheduled for Saturday was cancelled.
The Columbian reported that the International Longshore and Warehouse Union on Friday proposed a contract based on one ratified by TEMCO grain operators and union locals in Tacoma, Kalama and Portland.
Representatives of three grain-terminal operators -- United Grain Corp., Columbia Grain and Louis Dreyfus Commodities -- rejected the union proposal.
The bargaining session was the first since last December.
