Port of Montreal Labour Update

Dear Customer,


On Tuesday, March 2, the Maritime Employers Association (MEA) provided the following Port of Montreal labour negotiations update to the Freight Management Association of Canada:


“The Port of Montreal Longshoremen’s Union and the Maritime Employers Association, in collaboration with the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service completed on February 28 another continuous 4-day negotiation period. 
Unfortunately, parties did not reach an agreement. Mediators contacted MEA representatives to summon them to a meeting on Friday, March 5. 

We are now assessing all our options and we remain ready and available to negotiate. 
Our priority is still to reach a settlement. 
In order to comply with the truce concluded with the Port of Montreal Longshoremen’s Union, the Maritime Employers Association will not comment on the ongoing negotiations. This truce will remain in effect until March 21, 2021.”


We will continue to provide updates as they become available.
