Tugboat crews at Seaspan taking strike vote

Tugboat crews at Seaspan are going to hold a strike vote tomorrow, after learning the company plans to make 46 separate changes to their contract on June 9th.

Longshore Union Local 400 President Terry Engler says the union hasn’t had any input, and Seaspan is is deliberately provoking the union and the 350 workers affected won’t stand for it.

He says any job action will affect operations at Port Metro Vancouver, Deltaport and several other ports in British Columbia.

  1. the Government does the same now a private company Seaspan will try and do what Governments fail to do and that is to bust constitutional right and freedoms, in free collective bargaining protected by the Canadian Consitution! To the right wing is this what you really want gone is our Constitution that would benefit you all so nicely in the Harperist state of end Democracy! ! All they can do is bargain in Bad faith to provoke a strike and even if it’s against the laws, supported by the right whiner’s !

    • All I can say is BALONEY!!!!!!! Just exactly does Harper have to to with this impending strike? Is he advising companies to bargain in bad faith??? I don’t think so!!

      • The federal Government is in Charge of the ports along with Christy Clarks bunch! Ted they made a movie about you didn’t they is was very dirty, but funny I must say!!
