Posted by Expeditors on Jul 20, 2023 11:18:07 AM

The ILWU issued yesterday, July 19th, a 72-hour strike notice to the BC Maritime Employers Association (BCMEA) indicating they would be in a legal position to return to the picket lines as of 08:00 PDT on Saturday, July 22. 

Late yesterday, the ILWU Canada abruptly rescinded the 72-hour strike notice, eliminating the possibility of a strike on Saturday, July 22nd at 08:00 PDT. 

The status of negotiations, or if an agreement has been reached is unknown at this time.

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