Striking Montreal dockers and maritime employers conclude truce
from Maritime Magazine
Normal operations at the Port of Montreal are to resume early Sunday after the Maritime Employers Association (MEA) and the union representing 1,125 dockers today announced an agreement in principle for a 7-month truce during which negotiations will focus on a significant "modernization of labour relations." On the 12thday of a general strike, the news was announced at a rare joint press conference of the heads of the employer and docker entities in Canada's second-biggest port: Martin Tessier of the MEA and Michel Murray from the CUPE 375. A similar accord was also announced with the checkers union.
