Tentative deal to go to ILWU membership for ratification vote next week
The BCMEA has received communication from ILWU Canada that the ILWU Longshore Caucus approved and will recommend to their membership the Terms of Settlement that was proposed by the senior federal mediator and ratified by the BCMEA on July 13.
The tentative deal will be sent for a ratification vote by the ILWU voting membership, expected late next week, with results anticipated shortly thereafter.
The tentative agreement presented is the result of months of negotiations and mediation; we are hopeful that the voting membership, like the ILWU Caucus Leadership and Bargaining Committee, will support the fair and equitable deal as recommended by the senior federal mediator.
