Canada West Coast Contract Negotiations – July 31st, 2023

Posted by Expeditors on Jul 31, 2023 10:20:29 AM

Following the rejection of the deal by ILWU members during the weekend, the ILWU Canada and BCMEA published a joint news release late yesterday (Sunday, July 30th) indicating that a negotiated tentative settlement has been reached.  

The deal will be presented to membership for a vote, dates to be announced.

The ports of Vancouver and Prince Rupert are currently operational. The port terminals and rail partners continue to work through the backlog caused by the 13-day strike earlier this month. 

The situation remains fluid, please reach out to your Expeditors representative for any questions.
