Toronto, August 7, 2020
The Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), representing dock workers at the Port of Montreal, says it will launch an indefinite strike without an end date starting Monday, August 10th.
The move expands the pair of four-day strikes by CUPE that have diverted several ships to ports in Halifax, New York City and Saint John, N.B.. The announcement by CUPE follows escalating tensions between the union and the Maritime Employers Association amid a labour action revolving around wages and scheduling.
