USA: End the port workers lockout in Vancouver


In partnership with the International Transport Workers Federation, a global federation of 690 unions representing over 4.5 million transport workers in 153 countries .

Workers at the Port of Vancouver, Washington, USA have been locked out by their employer, Japanese conglomerate Mitsui-United Grain, since February 27, 2013. The ITF believes the lockout is an anti union attack and an attempt to avoid negotiating with workers in good faith over their collective bargaining agreement. The workers' latest agreement expired in September 2012 leaving them without a contract and open to abuse by their employer which has now taken extreme and aggressive action.
