Labour Dispute Ends at BC Ports

International Longshore and Warehouse Union Canada (ILWU) workers have voted in favour of a four-year contract, ending labour disruptions that recently impacted port operations in British Columbia.

Following 5 weeks of disruptions,13 days of strike action, and three tentative agreements, the new agreement will see more than 7,000 terminal cargo loaders return to work and begin to clear the backlogs at marine terminals at the Ports of Vancouver and Prince Rupert.
