Port of Montreal longshoremen to vote on final offer Sunday

Home News Port of Montreal longshoremen to vote on final offer Sunday

MONTREAL — The parties involved in a seven-month truce at the Port of Montreal have not reached an agreement to date, but the 1,125 longshoremen will vote on a final offer on Sunday.

The seven-month truce was reached between the Maritime Employers Association and the FTQ-affiliated Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) local last August.

The 1,125 longshoremen will be called to vote to end the truce.

However, there was no agreement reached between the parties, even after months of discussions, with the help of three mediators, and even intensive mediation sessions. Instead, the longshoremen will decide on a final and comprehensive offer.

It is not clear whether the union will recommend that its members accept the final offer or whether it will remain neutral on the offer, leaving it to its members to decide after the details of the offer are presented.
