June 22, 2023 – As the cooling off period has ended, both ILWU Canada and the BCMEA are now in a position to call for a strike or a lockout. But there has not been any word from either camp. As many recall, the last time there was such action was back in May 2019, following a short 90 minute lockout and a threat of a strike. With the US west coast labour situation now resolved, focus now has switched to seeing if Canada will follow suit. We will provide additional updates as they become known.
