***Our carrier partner Matson, is exercising cautionary measures in light of internal labor negotiations and union contracts ending 6/30. There is no cause for alarm, this was determined to provide certainty to customers.***
Official Matson Communication:
“Matson remains in negotiations on new labor contracts with unions representing unlicensed crew on our ships serving Hawaii and Guam in Matson domestic trades. The current contracts with these groups expire June 30 at 24:00 Pacific time.
Matson and the unions have worked together without interruption since the 1960s. We remain cautiously optimistic about reaching a timely, fair, and equitable agreement once again.
Out of an abundance of caution and to provide certainty for our customers, Matson has decided to advance the sailing of Mokihana 349W….”
