    More labor conflicts expected over health care costs By Alex Veiga
    LOS ANGELES -- When West Coast longshoremen and shipping companies ended their labor dispute in January, union officials boasted that the new contract would set a standard for organized labor.

    Among its provisions was no-cost health insurance, prompting an AFL-CIO official to remark that longshoremen 'won a historic contract which sets a much-needed benchmark in health care, pensions and living standards.'

    For many of the country's workers that benchmark is already shifting, as employers face soaring health care costs and ask workers to shoulder a greater share of the burden. Workers are resisting, giving rise to labor conflicts in California and elsewhere.
