The union representing about 7,200 dockworkers at Canada’s western ports said members plan to strike July 1 after negotiations with employers for a new contract failed. 

The International Longshore and Warehouse Union Canada “ has run out options at the bargaining table,” it said in a statement on its website Wednesday. Employees “are prepared to walk off the job at 8 a.m.” Saturday, it said.
