(Update: 13 July, 10:20 AM Vancouver Time)

According to various local media, the 13-day strike at the ports of British Columbia (B.C.) appears to have come to a close, as the International Longshore and Warehouse Union Canada and the B.C. Maritime Employers Association has reached a tentative four-year agreement, confirmed by both parties. The B.C. Maritime Employers Association (BCMEA) has announced that work will resume with the start of the 4:30 PM PT shift on Thursday.

VINPAC - Vancouver:

The Greater Vancouver Board of Trade reports that there are currently

63,000 shipping containers stranded on vessels awaiting unloading at B.C. ports. If the strike were to continue until the end of July, this number could potentially escalate to 245,000.
