PORTLAND, Ore. —

Northwest grain terminal owners say they have no plans to lock out workers even though they got no response to their final contract offer by a Saturday deadline.

Terminal owners said in a statement that they believe bargaining with a longshoremen's union is at an impasse but have agreed to attend meetings with a federal mediator next week and "will approach them with an open mind."

The International Longshore and Warehouse Union has said workers intend to keep moving grain.

Northwest terminals handle a quarter of all U.S. grain exports.
