Dear Customer,


The following excerpt is taken from a bulletin received from the Freight Management Association of Canada:


CIFFA received notice that the Longshoremen's Union CUPE Local 375 has advised its members of the following.

  • On March 15, a hearing took place before the Canada Industrial Relations Board on the issue of the union being said to be negotiating in bad faith. A ruling from the CIRB is expected soon.

On March 12, the employer, the Maritime Employers Association, put forth a final offer to the union. This is not an agreement in principle.

The union will send out the final offer to members on March 18 by email and, for those who do not have email, copies of the offer will be available at the Maison des Débardeurs office.

The Port of Montreal will be closed on March 21 from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm for a special meeting of members, during which time the contents of the final offer will be discussed.

The union will follow up with information on timing and format of the meeting in order to facilitate maximum attendance for voting on the final offer.


We will continue to provide updates as they become available.
