This week we sent a letter to the federal Labour Minister Seamus O’Regan asking for immediate intervention with the ILWU and BCMEA labour dispute. We are urging the federal government to reconvene Parliament to implement back-to-work legislation to avoid further disruption in Canada’s West Coast ports.

Additionally, we signed a joint letter with the Canadian Chamber of Commerce among many associations, local chambers of commerce and boards of trade, expressing our deep concern of the ongoing strike action.

We believe these letters will aid government in finding an immediate resolution in this labour dispute for the interest of preventing further consequences for all Canadians.
