West Coast Ports, Union Reach Tentative Deal

West Coast port management and the International Longshore & Warehouse Union (ILWU), the labor union representing port workers, reached a tentative deal after the intervention of Labor Secretary Julie Su, but it could be months before the full union votes to approve the deal, according to a report from CNBC.

The process could take up to several months, union representatives said.
