Suez vs longshoremen situation – ?

One of the biggest container ships in the world is stuck in the Suez Canal, as everyone who even keeps half an eye on Twitter knows, and is blocking shipping in both directions. When that waterway finally reopens, there’s going to be an almighty rush on ports worldwide.

What I’m wondering is whether our longshoremen’s union is planning any labour action to coincide with what’s bound to be a massive demand for overtime at the port. They rejected the most recent contract offer over the weekend, and while they didn’t threaten an immediate strike, they’ve got to be aware they’ll be faced with a unique opportunity whenever that ship gets unstuck.
