PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A small Portland business operator says the slowdown at the Port of Portland is costing him money.

Pine Crest Fabrics relies on suppliers in South Korea. But the slowdown means shipments are about three weeks late.

President Tim Sheils told KOIN (http://bit.ly/16nd0XJ) the labor dispute at the port is costing him about $2,000 a week in lost sales.

The dispute between the Longshore Union and port operators affects ports all along the West Coast.
