We have managed to work through our substantial backlog of shipments in France, helped by the suspension of the daily 4 hour work stoppages. Strikes have, however, been scheduled for April 28th, 2023 and May 1st, 2023. In addition, French public holidays are scheduled for May 1st, May 8th, May 18th and May 29th. With the disruption from the continued strikes and planned public holidays in May, we continue to encourage our customers to plan for longer lead times from France.
West Coast Ports Labor Update:
After almost a year of negotiations, the Times of San Diego is reporting tentative agreement on some key points which had previously stalled talks. Negotiations will continue on several other key issues until all are resolved.
