(Reuters) - Cargo operations at the Port of Baltimore, one of the largest and busiest ports in the United States, were halted on Wednesday by a longshoremen's strike after contract negotiations stalled, port officials said.
"There is no cargo being handled or ships being worked at the public marine terminals at the port of Baltimore," said Richard Scher, a spokesman for the Maryland Port Administration. "The port of Baltimore, regrettably, is the only port from Maine to Texas that is not working today."
