Hanjin Shipping Co. Ltd and the longshoremen’s union have reached a tentative labor agreement over the shipper's planned terminal at Dames Point.

The agreement still has to be approved by Hanjin’s senior leadership in South Korea, the International Longshoremen Association’s technology committee and by members of ILA Locals 1593 and 1408, said Jess Babich, immediate past president of the ILA Clerks & Checkers Local 1593.
