Montreal port strike could be costly, truckers say
from Inside Logistics
After rail blockades and the Covid-19 pandemic, the Quebec trucking industry is now facing another issue as the union of longshoremen of the Port of Montreal filed a 72-hour notice indicating that an unlimited general strike will be called on Aug. 10 at 7 a.m. Operations at the Port of Montreal have been disrupted by short strikes affecting container terminals for the last two weeks. The collective agreement between the longshoremen's union and the Maritime Employers Association (MEA) expired on Dec. 31, 2018. The issue of schedules is at the core of the negotiations.
