The principal business of the Pacific Maritime Association (PMA) is to negotiate and administer maritime labor agreements with the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU). The membership of the PMA consists of domestic carriers, international carriers and stevedores that operate in California, Oregon and Washington. The labor agreements the PMA negotiates on behalf of its members cover wages, employee benefits and conditions of employment for workers employed at longshore, marine clerk and walking boss/foreman jobs. The Association processes weekly payrolls for workers and collects assessments on payroll hours and revenue cargo to fund employee benefits plans provided for by the ILWU-PMA labor agreements.
