B.C. Plans Back-to-Work Law for Vancouver Port Truckers Strike

March 19 (Bloomberg) -- The British Columbia government plans to introduce back-to-work legislation for striking unionized truckers serving Port Metro Vancouver, Canada’s largest.

The government is preparing the legislation “with a 90-day cooling off period for 250 truckers who are members of Unifor, with the intention of introduction in the legislature as early as Monday March 24,” the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure said today in a statement.

About 2,000 trucks move items to and from the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority’s facility, which handled 135 million tons of cargo in 2013, according to its website.
