Location: Annapolis, MD

Governor Martin O'Malley released this statement following the agreement today to extend the longshoremen's contract for 30 days:

"I'd like to commend today's decision by the International Longshoremen's Association and the United States Maritime Alliance to extend their negotiations by 30 days to produce a new master labor agreement for ports along the East Coast and Gulf of Mexico.

"The Port of Baltimore continues to be a major part of our State's economic strength, generating and supporting thousands of jobs. During this extended period, we hope that a long-term resolution can be reached for the well-being of Maryland's hardworking families who depend on jobs and commerce linked to the Port of Baltimore."
