Update Notice: Potential Nationwide CBSA Strike

As of June 5, 2024, negotiations between the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC), the Customs and Immigration Union (CIU), and the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) continue under tight deadlines. A strike is scheduled to commence on June 7, 2024, at 4 p.m. ET if no agreement is reached.

Key Points:

  • Strike Background: Over 9,000 CBSA employees, who have been without a contract for more than two years, are seeking fair wages, flexible work options, equitable retirement benefits, and stronger workplace protections.
  • Essential Services: While 90% of frontline Border Services Officers are designated as essential workers and will continue their duties, significant disruptions at borders and airports are anticipated due to increased wait times and picketing.
  • Industry Concerns: The potential strike is causing apprehension within the business and trucking industries, which fear economic impacts due to delays in cross-border trade.
  • Negotiation Status: A mediator is assisting in the ongoing negotiations. Both the union and the government are working towards a last-minute resolution to avoid the strike and its potential repercussions.

Updates will be provided as more information becomes available.
