The labor dispute between the Maritime Employers Association (MEA) and Port of Montreal longshoremen escalated on Sunday with the announcement that they will begin an indefinite strike today, Tuesday, April 13th, 2021.

The Port of Montreal longshoremen announced that they will not work any overtime hours as of today. In addition, they will cease their activities on weekends, starting Saturday, April 17th.

This decision by the longshoremen union will have a major impact on the fluidity of the supply chain. However, the Port of Montreal will pursue its operations.
