Longshoremen at Port of Montreal Launch Four-Day Strike

Longshoremen at the Port of Montreal launched a four-day strike Monday morning. The union representing striking workers gave the Maritime Employers Association 72 hours’ notice Friday.

Union members affiliated with the Canadian Union of Public Employees will not provide any mooring services during the strike, except for supplies to Newfoundland and Labrador and for grain vessels, in order to comply with a decision rendered by the Canada Industrial Relations Board.

The union said the dispute is mainly centered on working hours.
