Port Metro Vancouver Truckers Strike Ends

The strike ended late afternoon Wednesday, March 26.

March 27, 2014

Vancouver truckers are back at work this morning after an agreement was reached, late Wednesday afternoon, between the members of the United Truckers Association and Unifor with assistance from state and federal governments, as well as Port Metro Vancouver.

The strike left millions of dollars of cargo stranded at the Vancouver-area container terminals and caused some freight to be diverted to nearby ports, such as Seattle. The strike included 1,000 non-unionized truckers, whom began striking in February 2014, as well as about 250 unionized truckers that joined the strike on March 10, 2014.

The brewing conflict between truckers and the port largely included concerns linked to pay and long wait times associated with traffic congestion.
