The CIRB decision supports the negotiating committees of the ILWU Canada and ILWU Ship & Dock Foremen! Stay tuned for further details coming soon…
Minister of Labour, Lisa Raitt has officially referred the current round of collective bargaining between ILWU and the BCMEA to the Canadian Industrial Relations Board. The CIRB has been given the task of determining whether either party has been bargaining in bad faith, or been unreasonable in their effort to enter into an agreement.
The link below provides a copy of the letter that The Honorable Lisa Raitt has sent to the CIRB. More information will be made available to you as it comes up.
Be patient, do not bite and stay united.
Tom Dufresne, President
