PORTLAND, Ore. —

Longshore workers have been locked out of a Portland grain terminal amid a longstanding labor dispute.

The Oregonian reports ( http://bit.ly/13UzqZM) that International Longshore and Warehouse Union workers were locked out of Columbia Grain Inc. at 6 a.m. Saturday. The company issued a statement accusing union members of slowing their work and using other tactics to interfere with terminal operations.

The longshore union condemned the lockout.

Columbia Grain is owned by Marubeni, a Japanese company. Managers and temporary workers loaded grain on a Panama-flagged ship Saturday.

The lockout is the second at a Northwest grain terminal, following a similar action at United Grain Corp. in Vancouver, Wash.
