Important Service Update: 72-hour strike notice

As you may be aware, the BC General Employees’ Union (BCGEU) has provided 72-hour strike notice. It is entirely up to the BCGEU what form the strike action will take.

The BC Liquor Distribution Branch (LDB) recognizes this news may be concerning to wholesale customers. Bargaining is a dynamic process and while we do not know the extent of any possible job action, the LDB will continue to take steps to minimize the immediate impacts to customers and industry partners. This includes continuing to maintain regular operations and customer service levels over the next 72 hours.

We commit to providing updates to industry on potential impacts as they become known and important notices will be posted on the LDB Wholesale Operations website at Any questions should be directed to:  

 We value our industry partnerships and will continue to work together to serve our mutual customers.
