The labour strife continues with Metro Vancouver’s container truck drivers.
Their union plans to take legal action today against B.C.’s trucking commissioner because drivers still haven’t been paid wages owed to them from an agreement signed more than a year ago.
In March of last year, the truckers set up picket lines and shut down Port Metro Vancouver for nearly a month.
They complained of wage undercutting and long wait lines.
They eventually signed a deal with the Port and government that brought in a new rate structure.
But on Tuesday, Unifor officials claim the commissioner isn’t committed to enforced those new rates, and they’ve had enough.
