A potential strike by over 9,000 Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) workers was averted on Tuesday as the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) and the Customs and Immigration Union (CIU) reached a tentative agreement with the federal government. Negotiations were extended last week, culminating in the agreement just before a looming deadline. Details of the four-year tentative agreement include a total compounded wage increase of 15.7%, enhanced protections relative to technological changes, and better provisions for shift scheduling and leave. The potential strike, which could have disrupted border crossings and impacted the economy, has been averted pending the members’ ratification vote.
