Tentative deal would mean “long-term stability” for B.C. port workers

July 31, 2023  By Global News

A new tentative deal reached between the two sides involved in a labour dispute impacting some 7,400 British Columbia port workers would mean “long-term stability” if ratified, Labour Minister Seamus O’Regan says.

The deal was reached late Sunday night with the assistance of the Canada Industrial Relations Board (CIRB).

The International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) and BC Maritime Employers Association (BCMEA) said in a joint statement they are recommending their members to ratify it. Union members have until Friday to vote on the offer, CIRB ruled.
