Unions representing more than 8,500 Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) employees voted to strike as early as the first week of August. CBSA has announced that they are working on mitigation strategies to limit operational disruptions and has noted that 90% of employees are considered essential and will continue to provide services.
Members of the Canadian Society of Customs Brokers can view CBSA’s message here.
