Port of Montreal: Longshoremen Reject MEA’s Settlement Proposal - Universal Logistics Trade Alerts - April 25, 2024

Toronto, April 25, 2024

The 1,200 longshoremen at the Port of Montreal rejected, by a margin of 99.5 percent, management’s latest offer to renew their collective agreement.

The Maritime Employers Association (MEA), which represents the employer side, had stated that this settlement proposal represented the furthest they could go in the current context.  Of the 1,206 members of this local of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), 1,078 were present, and rejected the employer’s offer by 99.54 percent.  The parties have already entered a mediation phase in an attempt to reach an agreement.  Wages and job security are among the main points in dispute.

For more information, please call David Lychek, Director – Ocean & Air Services at (905) 882-4880, ext. 1207.
