Longshore workers are set to strike at key Vancouver container terminals on Monday, May 27

Roughly two thousand workers will commence strike action at GCT Deltaport and GCT Vanterm on May 27, 2019 at 7:00 am.

Deltaport is the largest container terminal of the four in Vancouver, Canada’s busiest port. If it and Vanterm are shut down, it would cripple most of the port’s container traffic. Depending on how the union’s picket lines are set up, other terminals could be affected.

The Port of Vancouver is Canada’s largest, and the third largest in North America by tonnes of cargo. It handles the bulk of Canada’s trade with Asia, including container terminals, grain terminals, coal terminals and a host of other facilities.

For more information, please call David Lychek, Manager – Ocean & Air Services at (905) 882-4880, ext. 207.
