Port of Halifax employers and longshoremen's union reach tentative agreement

The Port of Halifax's Employers Association and the Council of International Longshoremen's Association (ILA) announced that they reached a tentative agreement this week.

The current collective agreement expired on Dec. 31, 2017. The new agreement, if approved by both parties, covers a three-year term and would run until Dec. 31, 2020.

Both the employers association and the Council of ILA bargaining committees are unanimously recommending ratification of the tentative agreement.

The Halifax Employers Association represents steamship companies and agents employing labour, stevedores and container terminal operators handling vessels in the Port of Halifax.

Details of the tentative agreement will not be released until it has been ratified.
