Over the Thanksgiving weekend, Westshore Terminals and ILWU Local 502 reached a tentative agreement that enabled operations to resume on the afternoon of October 9th. The new six-year agreement, which expires on January 31, 2028 is subject to a ratification vote by end of October 2022.  Westshore advises that the ILWU 502 agreement is the first of three collective agreements to be negotiated and that negotiations with Locals 514 and 517 will be scheduled in the near future.

The annual throughput volume for 2022 is now estimated at 24-25 million tonnes in view of the labour disruptions and expected performance from BNSF for the second half of the year.
