VANCOUVER, Wash. —

Contract talks broke down Friday between representatives of union dockworkers and three Pacific Northwest grain terminal operators who returned to the bargaining table for the first time in months.

A bargaining session previously scheduled for Saturday was cancelled.

The Columbian reports (http://is.gd/cBjFRB) that the International Longshore and Warehouse Union on Friday proposed a contract based on one ratified by TEMCO grain operators and union locals in Tacoma, Kalama and Portland.

Representatives of three grain-terminal operators - United Grain Corp., Columbia Grain and Louis Dreyfus Commodities - rejected the union proposal.

The bargaining session was the first since last December.
