Agreement to resume full operations at Port Metro VancouverBC Newsroom - Full Story
The governments of Canada and British Columbia and Port Metro Vancouver have reached agreement with members of the United Truckers Association and Unifor to end the 28-day work disruption at Port Metro Vancouver and resume full operations as of Thursday March 27, 2014.
The agreement was reached following extensive discussions between all parties, and the joint adoption of a refined joint action plan to address truckers concerns.
Federal mediator Vince Ready has been retained to meet with all parties including UTA and Unifor leaders, immediately upon the resumption of full operations to review, finalize, and act upon the plan within 90 days.
With the agreement, the Government of British Columbia is not proceeding with pending legislation that would have ordered a cooling off period in the Unifor job action.
