Dock workers in the Port of Los Angeles resumed talks Wednesday in a labor dispute that threatens to slow the flow of goods into the United States.

Associated Press reporter Justin Pritchard says the talks are impacting 29 ports along the coast.

Pritchard also says these negotiations come up every six years. This year, the biggest issues are healthcare, and a fear that technology will invade the jobs of current workers.
