ICHCA Welcomes ILWU CANADA
The global association representing cargo handling companies, ICHCA International (ICHCA) is delighted to welcome International Longshore and Warehouse Union Canada as a new member.
As a leading voice in a crucial sector of the global supply chain, ICHCA brings together a wide range of players that perform a vital role in driving the world economy. The addition of one of the leading labour organizations in Canada will be a tremendous asset in carrying out ICHCA’s primary mission of maintaining and improving safety in all aspects of cargo handling.
ILWU Canada has long advocated for workplace health and safety for its over 7000 members on the west coast of Canada. We believe that re-establishing our membership of ICHCA is an important step. We feel it is important for ILWU Canada in engage at the international level in the areas of health and safety. We hope to engage in work at the technical panel level with ICHCA. It is important to have workers voices at the table.
