Strike ends at Montreal port

Following the announcement on 23rd April of strike action by the the Union representing the Port of Montreal Longshoremen, Bill C-29 passed by the Canadian Parliament on Friday, 30th April, ordered for port operations to resume.

While terminals have now reopened and union members returned to work as of yesterday (Sunday, 2nd May), the resumption of all services will take several days of work by port workers and stakeholders. Close to 20,000 TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent units) are currently on Montreal Port territory following the recent work stoppages with about 275-million-Canadian-dollars worth of goods usually moving through the Port of Montreal daily.
 
As a result, delays to imports/exports are to be expected over the coming weeks still. Please contact your local Woodland representative or email us here should you require any further information.
