Canada Dockworkers to Vote on New Contract after Recent Strike Threat

The union representing more than 7,000 dockworkers at two of Canada’s busiest ports is set for a key vote on a new contract on Friday, potentially putting an end to labor unrest that has temporarily disrupted billions of dollars in trade.

The International Longshore & Warehouse Union will hold an emergency contract caucus to decide whether to send the deal to union members for ratification (source: AJOT).
