We received notification about a 30 day reprieve.

Ron Bailey, Manager of Brewster Lines, has shared information below. A 30 day extension was granted on the ILA contract discussions to avert the December 29 strike. So we will live under the possibility of an East Coast strike for another 30 days, or until the issue is resolved.
