Wednesday, December 5, 2012

Clerical workers at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach are back at work Wednesday, the Los Angeles Times and Daily Breeze report. Negotiators agreed to a tentative deal ending a strike that crippled America's busiest shipping hub for more than a week. Retailers expressed relief at the deal, which still must be approved by union members, the Times says.
