The New York Shipping Association mission is to represent the interests of its members in maximizing the efficiency, cost-competitiveness, safety and quality of marine cargo operations in the Port of New York and New Jersey.
NYSA will accomplish this mission:
Through negotiation of fair collective bargaining agreements with the International Longshoremen’s Association and the Port Police and Guards Union;
Through effective implementation of those collective bargaining agreements; and judicious management of the various funds created thereunder;
Through strong advocacy of our members interests in the public, government and business communities;
Through close collaboration with other maritime and maritime-related organizations who share common interests;
Through partnering with public agencies tasked with the improvement of the region’s transportation system; and
Through frequent communications with members to insure that their interests are well served.
To be the premier professional service organization in the maritime industry, supporting a secure, growing port with a professional and economic labor force, efficiently moving cargo in a deep, sustainable harbor located in an estuary flourishing with natural resources.
