BALTIMORE (AP) - A strike by longshoremen at the Port of Baltimore is affecting all cargo operations.

The longshoremen, the largest of four unions at the port representing more than 1,000 workers, went on strike after contract negotiations stalled Tuesday. Three other unions representing port workers joined the strike.

The longshoremen are part of the International Longshoremen's Association Local No. 333. The Steamship Trade Association of Baltimore, which hires laborers to work at the port, represents management.
