Toronto, March 3, 2021
The Port of Montreal Longshoremen's Union and the Maritime Employers Association, in collaboration with the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service, completed another continuous 4-day negotiation period on February 28.
Unfortunately, the parties did not reach an agreement. Mediators have contacted MEA representatives to summon them to a meeting on Friday, March 5. All options are under review and mediators remain ready and available to negotiate, with the priority of reaching a settlement.
In order to comply with the truce negotiated 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.
