Canadian customs will vote over the next two months on an agreement in principle reached on March 29 , the day before the Easter holidays.
The union executive strongly recommends that its members endorse the agreement.
Local assemblies will be held in the coming weeks to organize the ratification vote. In Windsor, Ontario, home to the busiest land border crossing in the country, a meeting will be held in two weeks.
There are 8500 border services officers across the country. The Customs and Immigration Union plans to hold an electronic vote.
The employment contract of the customs officers had expired more than three years ago.
