Update: Port of Montreal Labour Negotiations - Universal Logistics Trade Alerts - May 29, 2024

Toronto, May 29, 2024

The Maritime Employers Association (MEA) has provided an update on labour negotiations with Longshore Workers’ Union (CUPE Local 375) at the Port of Montreal.  As per the MEA, the two sides are still in mediation once a week, with the final scheduled session currently set for June 14th.  A strike has not been voted on or planned at this point.  The MEA’s priority remains the signing of a negotiated collective agreement to bring back stability to the Port of Montreal and the Canadian supply chain.

Labour negotiations between the union, which represent approximately 1,000 longshore workers at the port, and the MEA have been ongoing since the former collective agreement expired on December 31, 2023.  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.
