The more than 600 members of the United Truckers Association have voted unanimously in favour of a strike at the Port of Vancouver.
The association says the vote was held on Canada Day to back demands for changes to a policy that would stop trucks older than 20-years from working at the port.
A statement from the association says the policy will impose crippling costs on drivers, but the port has refused to discuss changes and intends to implement the plan in September.
Association officials say no job action will happen in July, to give time for talks, but members will move forward with a shutdown as early as August unless there is some movement or the federal transport minister intervenes.
