    Canadian border workers reach deal, but delays remain in Detroit, Port Huron

    DetroitUnionized Canadian border agency workers reached a tentative deal late Friday aimed to end a “work-to-rule” action that effectively slowed the passage of traffic across the border.

    But lengthy delays remained for commercial traffic at major U.S.-Canada border-crossings to start the weekend, including in Detroit and Port Huron.

    Late Friday, “after an intense final round of negotiations that lasted more than 36 hours,” the Public Service Alliance of Canada and Customs and Immigration Union said it had reached a tentative agreement with the Canada Border Services Agency. 

    “We are relieved that CBSA and the government finally stepped up to address the most important issues for our members to avoid a prolonged labour dispute,” said Chris Aylward, PSAC national president.

    The agreement meant an immediate end to the work-to-rule action “and ensures the flow of border traffic will return to normal as the government prepares to welcome fully vaccinated U.S. travelers on Monday,” the group said.
