Statement on Tentative Labour Agreement


The Prince Rupert Port Authority (PRPA) commends the ILWU and the BCMEA for reaching a tentative agreement that provides the opportunity for short-term operational recovery and a return to long-term stability at Canadian transpacific gateways, as well as Federal Minister of Labour Seamus O’Regan and the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service for their leadership through the mediation process.

The Prince Rupert Port Authority and our supply chain partners, and local ILWU members in particular, have collectively built a global reputation for speed and reliability and together we are now completely focused on operational recovery and quickly re-establishing fluidity and productivity to build back that well-earned competitive position in the shipping industry. We are ready to restore the advantage that Team Prince Rupert has demonstrated in the past.

PRPA continues to advance its plans to further expand terminal, logistics and infrastructure capacity and capabilities to meet the future needs of transpacific trade and Canada’s trade ambitions.
