Port Metro trucking license system unfair, court rules

From ILWU Canada’s web site:

A group of Port Metro Vancouver container truck drivers who were denied licenses to haul cargo in and out of port terminals won their case in Federal Court arguing that the selection process was unfair and their applications should be reconsidered.

Unless Port Metro Vancouver appeals the decision, it means the port will have to issue additional new licenses to applicants representing about 200 trucks.

Port Metro Vancouver brought the new licensing system in as part of the agreement to end last year’s 28-day work stoppage by drivers at port terminals, which ground almost to a halt the local delivery of containers.
