Vote in favor for strike – Vancouver Canada

The ILWU Local 500 Union in Vancouver Canada has voted in favor of a possible strike (98.4% in favor). The Union can go on strike in the next 60 days; however a 72-hour notice must be given.

The Local 500 Union is in favor of negotiating fair deals for longshore workers, according to a publication released on their website earlier this month. The Negotiating Committee will continue work towards a reasonable agreement before a strike takes place. 

Inchcape will keep our customers advised on any changes, or if a strike is declared.
