Container truck drivers at two large Metro Vancouver port trucking companies have voted to strike if necessary, according to a release from Unifor. A strike could affect almost 200 truckers servicing the Port of Vancouver and threaten overall port stability at a time when supply chain pressures are enormous.

Hundreds of truckers employed by Prudential Transportation and Aheer Transportation gathered in Surrey on November 21st and voted to strike if their employers refused the industry pattern agreement. Unifor members ratified the pattern agreement with over 100 truckers at Harbour Link Transportation in August 2021.
