Vancouver truckers issue 72 hour strike notice

18 Mar

Hope they get better pay and shorter wait times…Need to do the same thing here.

Global News

Unionized truck drivers at Port Metro Vancouver have now issued 72 hour strike notice.

Unless there is an agreement they will be going on strike Thursday, March 6 at noon.

The vote to strike came after a work stoppage by the United Truckers Association.

The union represents about 400 truck drivers, who would join the non-union truckers who launched job action last week.

The group of around 1,000 non-unionized workers walked off the job over a number of issues, including long wait times and low rates of pay.

Unifor is asking for rates to rise and be standardized and enforced across the sector to prevent under-cutting.
