Two sides in L.A. port strike reach deal to end week-old strike
LOS ANGELES Dec 4 (Reuters) - Striking harbor clerks reached a tentative contract deal with management at the twin ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach on Tuesday night, settling a week-old labor clash that has idled most of America's biggest cargo-shipping complex.
The accord followed a resumption of negotiations after the two sides agreed to accept the help of federal mediators under pressure from Los Angeles Mayor Anthony Villagraigosa, who announced the deal.
