The Port of Portland plans a $4.7 million repayment to the operator of its container terminal to cover losses from longshore labor problems.

4 Plus million to turn on a light switch. Take it from the unions that caused the loss not me the taxpayer who built the Port of Portland in the first place so they could have work.
