Noatum Logistics Completes Acquisition of the Multinational MIQ Logistics. Read more.


Late Friday, August 6, 2021, the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC), on behalf of the Customs and Immigration Union (CIU), announced a tentative agreement with the government. This agreement ended the strike that had started earlier that day.

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) had been working without a contract for more than 3 years. After negotiations ended on July 26, 2021, CBSA voted to strike starting August 6, 2021. Even though 90% of the CBSA members are considered essential and were required to work, they did effectively engage a work slowdown at border crossing ports between the United States and Canada which did report longer lines and increased wait times.

The announcement of an agreement at around 8:00pm on Friday night ended the strike.
