The Canadian Office and Professional Employees' Union local 378 is set for a one-day strike at 21 ICBC locations throughout BC, but it could signal further action.
President of COPE local 378 David Black hopes the job action will put pressure on the government to come to a deal with its employees.
"Unfortunately everything we've done has been unsuccessful, so we've been left with no option but to do this now and we hope this is successful and we can get a fair and reasonable settlement, but if not then we may have to look at doing something else."
Unionized ICBC workers have been working without a contract for two years.
