Container ships wait at the dock to be unloaded at the Port of Oakland on Thursday. Companies that operate marine terminals didn’t call workers to unload ships Thursday that carry car parts, furniture, clothing, electronics, just about anything made in Asia and destined for U.S. consumers. The partial lockout is the result of an increasingly damaging labor dispute between dockworkers and their employers. The two sides have been negotiating a new contract, and stalled talks have all but paralyzed 29 ports that handle about one-quarter of U.S. international trade, about $1 trillion worth of cargo annually.
