What's up with AFA/ADA in San Francisco??

I ordered some stuff from them over a month and they slowly update their website every once in a while saying they haven't gotten their shipment in because of a strike at the port. I can't find any information anywhere on this strike. Anybody have any news? I can't believe this wait...

Just give them a phone call.

It's pretty bad timing to lose ADG and have a strike in San Francisco at the same time.

Watch the vendor reviews, folks.

And ADG didn't shut down. They're no longer a distributor for ADA products.

Wish I knew what the strike was about. Surely it is not directed solely at them. Anyone have a clue what's going on there?

Wow, that is very strange. I have been to that store a few times, they have some very nice planted tank their. Hopefully you can get this figured out.

I had a tough time finding anything on a strike. I finally found this piece. It seems that this is more a backlog at one group of terminals, and labor and management blame each other for the problems.
