Operations at key West Coast terminals threatened by pending strike action

Planners and Assistant Planners at two container terminals in the Port of Vancouver have announced they will go on strike September 7, if negotiations on a new work agreement are not successful. The work stoppage would lead to a suspension of all operations at the affected terminals, GCT Deltaport & GCT Vanterm, due to the essential nature of this service.

Measures are already underway to arrange a safe and efficient closure of the terminals.

Every option, including mediation and binding arbitration, is being considered to break the impasse.

We will continue to monitor the situation and advise as new information is received.

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