ILWU to vote on Canada contract
The International Longshore and Warehouse Union Canada said its leadership will vote Thursday on a tentative collective bargaining agreement covering its 3,500 members.
'We are unanimously recommending the tentative agreement' with the British Columbia Maritime Employers Association, ILWU Canada President Tom Dufresne said in a statement.
A vote by the full membership will follow “shortly thereafter” the vote by the union’s leadership.
'We are content with the agreement. It will restore stability to our workplaces and shows that free collective bargaining continues to be the most effective way to set our conditions of work,' Dufresne said.
The union said details of the tentative agreement will be released after the membership vote.
