Strike Notice: Update on container operations at the Port of Montreal

Please find below the last update we received from the Port of Montreal about the container operations.

Dear customers and partners,

We would like to inform you that the Maritime Employer’s Association has received a strike notice starting on Thursday July 2 at 3 p.m. and ending on Saturday July 4 at 6:59 a.m. Thus, 2 of the 19 terminals at the Port of Montreal, 2 container terminals operated by MGTP, will be stopped during these two days.

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 4 at 7 a.m. 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.

In the meantime, be aware that you will be informed of any developments as they occur.

Tony Boemi

Vice-President, Growth and Development
