Strike or Lockout possible May 5 at Canadian West Coast Ports

Negotiations between the British Columbia Maritime Employers Association (BCMEA) and the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) Canada have moved into a 21-day cooling off period that expires on May 4, and would open the way for a strike or lockout at 12:01 a.m. on May 5. The association said it remains “cautiously optimistic” that the parties will achieve renewal agreements. Meetings are scheduled from April 29 to May 2; during this period port operations will continue as usual.

We will continue to monitor this situation and advise accordingly.
