Thousands of Canadian Border Service Agency (CBSA) members have voted in favour of strike action, jeopardizing the federal government’s reopening plans. Workers want shift change notice down from seven days to 48 hours and non-negotiated shifts, so they can impose times worked at the 24/7 operations. According to the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) and the Customs and Immigration Union (CIU), CBSA members may strike as soon as August 6, three days before fully vaccinated American travellers are able to travel Canada.
