Dear Member

The BCMEA has just released a statement indicating that it has reached a tentative agreement with the ILWU on a new 4-year deal.

The agreement is subject to ratification by both parties, and consequently, details about its contents will not be released at this time.

We will be participating in Transport Canada’s daily stakeholder meeting today at 4:00 PM EST and will share any additional information we receive about the agreement, and the resumption of operations, thereafter.
