CFIB wants back-to-work legislation for BC port strike

The union's decision at British Columbia ports to reject the mediated agreement is irresponsible and will prolong the devastating impacts of the strike, says Corinne Pohlmann, executive vice-president with the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB), in a statement. She says the 13-day strike had already done significant damage to small businesses across the country and Canada's international reputation as a dependable trading partner.  

“To let it carry on any further is negligent and will amplify disruptions of the supply chain. 

“Our economy and our small businesses do not have the luxury of waiting months for MPs to return to Ottawa before BC ports operations resume. CFIB is calling on government to pass back-to-work legislation to end the strike, clear the backlog and get our economy back on track.”
