Dear clients and partners,
We want to inform you that the Maritime Employers Association has received a strike notice effective Monday, July 27 at 7:00 a.m. until Friday, July 31 at 6:59 a.m. there will be a suspension of mooring services usually provided by longshoremen and cargo handling services at Port of Montreal terminals during this four-day period.
This action, carried out by the Longshoremen’s Union C.U.P.E., Local 375, will last for four days. As a result, the Port of Montreal and its partners expect to return to normal starting Friday, July 31 at 7:00 a.m.
The Montreal Port Authority is concerned about this situation, as Port activities are essential to keep the economy running smoothly and, in some cases, to ensure public health and safety.
We are therefore closely monitoring the situation and hope that the stevedores’ employer, the Maritime Employees Association, and the Union will be able to reach an agreement quickly.
In the meantime, we will keep you informed of any developments as needed.
Feel free to contact us for any questions, bookings, or inquiries. We’re always here to help 😄
