Home News CBSA workers to hold strike votes next week

Talks between the CBSA and the union broke off in December

A union representing 9,000 Canadian Border Service Agency personnel says Canada-U.S. border reopening plans are in jeopardy as their workers prepare for strike votes starting next week.

The Public Service Alliance of Canada says 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 June 16 and continue them throughout the month.

PSAC said their members have been without a contract for nearly three years. Talks with the CBSA and Treasury Board broke off in December.
