CBSA Workers Set New Strike Deadline

Dear Customer,


Please find excerpt from an industry updated issued by the Global News:



“Canada Border Services Agency members will strike starting this Friday if no deal is reached, the union representing workers said on Monday.


A statement by the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) and the Customs and Immigration Union (CIU), which represents more than 9,000 CBSA workers, advised that if an agreement is not reached with the CBSA and Treasury Board, the job action would begin at 12:01 a.m. ET on June 14.


The notice of action comes after it paused its original plan to begin at 4 p.m. on June 7 to allow for negotiations to continue until June 12.


A strike by CBSA workers would potentially impact border crossings across the country.


CBSA workers have been without a contract since the last one expired in June 2022.


According to the union, the two sides remain in negotiations this week with assistance from a mediator. PSAC and CIU would not provide further comment.”


We continue to monitor the situation and will advise as further updates are received.
