Dock workers at ports along the Pacific Coast of Canada have accepted a tentative wage deal on Thursday, July 13th to end strikes at the country’s busiest ports. This news comes after The British Columbia Maritime Employers Association (BCMEA) released a statement about the agreement earlier today.  

The strike primarily affected the Port of Vancouver and the Port of Prince Rupert and involved some 7,500 workers. The Labour Minister Seamus O’Regan played a pivotal role in a relatively quick resolution as the deal was struck just before his 24-hour deadline though this is the twelfth day of labor action overall.  

The total damages due to the strike are an estimated $5 billion and a toll of around $377 million per day.

Shapiro will provide further updates as they develop.
