Corrections

December 13, 1990

Because of an editing error, late editions of the Sunday Business section contained an incorrect description of how labor contract provisions affect ship-loading operations at night at the port of Baltimore. Under the old contract, longshoremen's pay would begin at 7 p.m. even if loading could not begin until hours later that night. Since a crew at night costs about $2,500 an hour, most ship owners would choose to delay loading until 8 a.m., the next regular starting time.

The Sun regrets the errors.
