"ILWU-Canada Strike Vote Results – Port of Vancouver
ILWU Local 500 posted the results of the strike vote held on May 8 and 9 on its website. More than 98 percent of the union's members voted in favour of supporting strike action against the member companies of the B.C. Maritime Employers Association, if necessary.
As noted in bulletins last week, BCMEA is "cautiously optimistic" that the two sides will come to an agreement, and further meetings have been scheduled."
