Strike avoided as ILWU Canada Local 522 members reach agreement with SGS Prince Rupert/Vancouver

ILWU Canada news release – 10:04 a.m. Nov. 4, 2020

Members of ILWU Canada Local 522 in Prince Rupert were scheduled to begin strike action on Nov. 4 against SGS in support of their effort to bargain a first collective agreement with the employer. A strike would have meant a complete work stoppage regarding grain sampling at any facility in Prince Rupert that handles grain. 

This morning we were advised that a tentative agreement has been reached and the union had called off any action.

Congratulations to the two sides for working together to bargain a tentative settlement.
