December 27, 2012 – Grain Companies enforce terms of “final” offer – Dockworkers union says members will stay on the job for now

As of 6:00AM this morning grain companies started to enforce the terms of the “final” offer, and dockworkers showed up for work…under these new terms that the union just rejected with a vote.
