RE-PORTING: Work resumed Wednesday at the nation's busiest port complex AT Los Angeles and Long Beach harbors after a crippling strike was settled, ending an eight-day walk-off that affected thousands of jobs and billions of dollars in cargo.

RUN AGROUND: Dozens of ships were stuck, officials said. Auto parts and retail merchandise were among the items that could be late in getting to destinations around the country.

CLERICAL ERROR? Clerical workers who said that shippers were outsourcing their jobs struck on Nov. 27. Thousands of dockworkers in the same union refused to cross picket lines, paralyzing much of the port complex.
