Tariff jitters grow at Washington state port

Sep 12, 2018
The port of Vancouver handles the West Coast's second-largest volume of imported steel, now subject to a 25 percent duty.
ILWU Local 4 President Cager Clabaugh says the tariffs are already hurting work at the port. An order for 6,000 tons of copper ore on route to China was recently canceled. The mountains of copper now sit unused in a warehouse at the Port of Vancouver.
