Canada Advisory Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) Potential Strike in June 2024

30 May Canada Advisory Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) Potential Strike in June 2024

Members of the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) who work for Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), have voted overwhelmingly to strike as early as June.

Ninety-six per cent of members voted in favor of job action during votes held from April 10 to May 23, the union announced.

The union states workers will be in a legal strike position in June, which is also when mediation sessions are scheduled to begin.

Per Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat, “The Government of Canada values the important work of border services employees, and we will do everything possible to reach a responsible and competitive agreement. However, in the event of strike action, Canadians should know that 90% of front-line border services employees are designated as essential, meaning they must continue providing services during a strike.”

Prime Freight will continue to monitor this situation and provide updates as soon as available.
