December 03, 2012|By Pat Benson and Ronald D. White

The strike at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach entered its second week Monday.

The strike has pitted the 800-member International Longshore and Warehouse Union Local 63 Office Clerical Unit against some of the world's biggest shipping lines and terminal operators. It has shut down 10 of the 14 cargo container terminals at the nation's busiest seaport complex.

Join us for a live video chat at 3 p.m. on the economic impact of the strike and prospects for resolution. Assistant business editor Nancy Rivera Brooks will be talking with Art Wong, a spokesman for the Port of Long Beach.
