CBSA strike votes begin today - Universal Logistics Trade Alerts - April 10, 2024

Toronto, April 10, 2024

Members of the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) and the Customs and Immigration Union (CIU) employed by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) will be conducting a strike vote across the country starting April 10, 2024.

As per PSAC, “After almost two years of negotiations, PSAC declared impasse in bargaining in September 2023 after CBSA refused to budge on key issues like wages in line with other law enforcement agencies, better job security, access to telework, and protections from contracting out.”

The PSAC and CBSA are proceeding to Public Interest Commission (PIC) hearings April 10th and 22nd with the Federal Public Sector Labour Relations and Employment Board. Following the hearings, the PIC will release its non-binding recommendations in an effort to reach an agreement. If members vote in favour of a strike, PSAC will be in a legal strike position seven (7) days after the board releases its report.

For more information, please call Brian Rowe, Director – Customs Compliance & Regulatory Affairs at (905) 882-4880, ext. 1213.
