Vancouver's port truckers have voted overwhelmingly in favour of strike action to back their contract demands.
Unifor's Vancouver Container Truck Association says 400 of its members are set to walk out Wednesday evening.
President Paul Johal says wages and long wait times are at the heart of the dispute.
The strike vote follows a work stoppage by the United Truckers Association -- a group of roughly one-thousand non-unionized workers -- that began February 26th over similar issues
