We would like to inform our customers that the Maritime Employer’s Association at the Port of Montreal has received a strike notice, which will be starting on Thursday, July 2nd at 3:00 PM EST and ending on Saturday, July 4th at 6:59 AM EST. This will result in a work stoppage for 2 of the 19 terminals operated by MGTP at the Port of Montreal, during this time.
These pressure tactics exercised by the Longshoremen’s Union, will last 40 hours. Consequently, the Port of Montreal and its partners expect to be able to resume activities as soon as Saturday, July 4th at 7:00 AM EST. Efforts will be made to make up for the delays that will be caused by this exceptional situation.
The Montreal Port Authority is closely monitoring the situation and we hope that the employer of the longshoremen, the Maritime Employer’s Association, and the Union will be able to come to an agreement quickly.
