    ITF makes formal complaint to Mitsui over Port of Vancouver lockout
    The ITF (International Transport Workers’ Federation) has reiterated its and its member unions’ continuing concern over the unacceptable lockout of workers at the Port of Vancouver, Washington State, USA.

    The Federation laid out its views on the dispute in a formal complaint to Masami Iijima, president and CEO of Mitusi Limited, which owns United Grain Corporation, the company at the centre of the lockout.

    Union, grain firms remain deadlocked
    More than three months in, the standoff between union dockworkers and United Grain Corp. at the Port of Vancouver shows no signs of letting up, even as Vancouver political leaders urge both parties to end the bitter battle.

    Although its workers have been locked out at both United Grain and Columbia Grain Inc. in Portland, the International Longshore and Warehouse Union said Thursday that it's winning support from labor groups across the globe. That show of support, the ILWU said, includes recent protests in Canada and Hong Kong, and letters to the CEO of Mitsui & Co. -- the Tokyo-based parent of United Grain -- from the International Transport Workers' Federation and from Hong Kong labor groups.
