Port of Montreal strike: Feds poised to intervene as work stoppage begins
As longshoremen began a general strike at the Port of Montreal on Monday, Canada’s federal government was moving quickly to intervene to force them back to work, citing the disruption to the supply chain.
The 1,150 members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees Local (CUPE) 375 began the unlimited strike at 7 a.m. at Canada’s second-busiest port. As a result, all cargo operations at the port have shut down except for liquid bulk, Oceanex service and the Viterra grain terminal.
But it does not appear that it will last long.
