Port of Montreal Strike Update

On Sunday April 25, the federal government gave notice that it will table back-to-work legislation in response to a dockworkers’ strike at Montreal’s port that threatens to have widespread economic repercussions across the country.

The Government of Canada issued a Notice Paper indicating that it will introduce a bill entitled “An Act to provide for the resumption and continuation of operations at the Port of Montreal” this morning. The notice identifies a process that will avoid some of the usual legislative steps to ensure a quick response to the labour situation.

While the notice paper is dated for Monday April 26, a government spokesman says the legislation won’t come before the House until at least Tuesday and could be shelved altogether if the dockworker’s union and the Maritime Employers Association reach a deal before then.

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