Strike Notice from ILWU
The International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU), has given the British Columbia Maritime Employers Association (BCMEA) a 72-hour notice of its intention to strike as of 08:00 PST on Wednesday, June 28, 2023.
The earliest we can expect a work stoppage action that could impact port operations in British Columbia is 0800 PST on Saturday, July 1st, 2023.
CN is currently monitoring this situation very closely and will continue to keep you updated should there be a need to reduce capacity (empty and loads) given the impact of this potential service interruption on CN’s Network. At this point, we do not anticipate an immediate impact to our international services going into the upcoming weekend.
CN’s domestic and international services to ports other than British Columbia will continue as normal during this period.
