The Puerto Rico Shipping Association Negotiating Committee negotiates the industry contracts with the Council of Unions of the ILA/UTM for all ports in Puerto Rico. This includes six Local Unions for all ports, Checkers and Foremen. As President of the Negotiating Committee I was instrumental in restructuring the Union contracts and establishing new rules for grievances that still are in effect.
