The International Longshore and Warehouse Union of Canada (ILWU) says it has reached a tentative agreement with the Maritime Employer’s Association that could lay to rest any potential strike at Fairview Terminal in Prince Rupert.

“We are unanimously recommending the tentative agreement,” says ILWU Canada President Tom Dufresne.

“We are content with the agreement. It will restore stability to our workplaces and shows that free collective bargaining continues to be the most effective way to set our conditions of work.”

A vote on the agreement is set for Thursday, and details on the agreement are not being made public until the vote takes place.
