Workers at Port of Montreal reject deal, raising strike fears

Home News Workers at Port of Montreal reject deal, raising strike fears

Unionized dockworkers at Canada’s second-largest port on Sunday, rejected an offer from management, a union representative said, raising industry fears of a new strike following crippling work stoppages in 2020.

A spokeswoman for the Canadian Union of Public Employees in Quebec which represents the dockworkers said the workers want to return to the negotiating table. An overwhelming 99.71% of the union workers rejected the offer, the spokeswoman said.

CUPE has been negotiating a contract with the Maritime Employers Association for 1,125 longshore workers at the Port of Montreal, after their agreement expired in 2018.

Sunday marks the end of a seven-month truce agreed to by the two sides which gave a reprieve to shippers who were hit hard last summer by the strike.
