HALIFAX, N.S. — About 60 unionized dock workers will be heading back to work after reaching a four-year agreement with Clarke Transport, a subsidiary of Halifax-based Clarke Inc.
The Teamsters Local Union No. 938 ratified the deal in a vote, ending nearly two months of a labour disruption.
The workers were locked out of the Concord, Ont. terminal in early January after a collective bargaining agreement expired on Dec. 31, 2005 and the two sides failed to reach an agreement.
The union rejected the first company offer due to unresolved issues, including hourly compensation rates, shift changes and use of part-time workers.
