  • USA: les ports de la côte ouest fermés par un lock-out
    Les ports américains de la côte ouest étaient placés ce lundi matin sous le régime du “lock-out”, c’est-à-dire que les opérateurs des terminaux avaient fermé leurs installations, que les dockers en étaient exclus et partant, c’était l’inactivité totale avec des navires à quai partiellement traités, tandis que d’autres étaient en attente. L’organisation patronale parlait d’une fermeture à durée indéterminée.

L’administration Bush suit la situation de très près, mais n’a pas encore manifesté l’intention d’intervenir.
