Some 9,000 Canadian Border Service Agency workers are preparing for strike votes starting next week while Canada-U.S. border reopening talks get underway. According to the Public Service Alliance of Canada, 5,500 border services officers, 2,000 headquarters staff and other workers at Canada Post facilities and in inland enforcement jobs will begin strike votes on Wednesday, which will then continue throughout the month. The workers, employed by the CBSA and Treasury Board, have been without a contract for nearly three years and say talks broke off between the two sides in December. As the two parties try to resolve their issues, they are waiting to receive recommendations from a public interest commission they appeared before in May to present arguments around compensation.
