72-Hour Strike From July 27 to 31 At Port Of Montreal

Aug 10, 2020

Update (Aug 10, 2020)

From Ciffa:

Notice of Indefinite Strike Action at the Port of Montreal, Effective Today

The Montreal Port Authority issued a notice on Friday afternoon to advise that the Maritime Employers Association (MEA) had received 72 hours’ advance notice from the CUPE union representing Montreal longshore workers for an indefinite general strike beginning this morning at 7:00 am.

This indefinite work stoppage will result in the suspension of berthage services normally provided by longshore workers and the handling of goods in the port's terminals.

Not affected by this situation are liquid bulk handling, the Oceanex service (Bickerdike Terminal) and the grain terminal (Viterra).

The Montreal Port Authority invites clients to contact or consult the websites of operators such as Termont (Viau and Maisonneuve) and MGTP (Cast and Racine) to learn the latest on the situation. 


From CIFFA

The Maritime Employers Association has announced that the longshoremen’s union will apply pressure tactics via a 72-hour general strike that will take place at the Port of Montreal next week, from July 27 to July 31, ending at 6:59 on July 31.

All terminals will be affected except for Oceanex services and the grain terminals.

No employees will post for new jobs and training will be blocked during this action.

The MEA noted it was surprised and disappointed by the notice.
