STOP THE STRIKE

Negotiations between the Maritime Employers Association (MEA) and the Longshoremen's Union CUPE Local 375 have not yielded an agreement, putting the union into a strike position with 72 hours notice.

Canada’s economy cannot afford this uncertainty.

TELL OTTAWA IT'S TIME TO #STOPTHESTRIKE bEFORE IT'S TOO LATE

The Port of Montreal is essential for Canadian agriculture to export products to high value markets around the world. The continued uncertainty caused by the threat of a Montreal work stoppage is already resulting in financial losses for the ag industry and further damaging our ability to grow the value of our sector while leading Canada’s economic recovery as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic.

ADD YOUR NAME TO SEND A MESSAGE TO THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

Agriculture has been a leading driver of Canada’s economic resiliency and recovery in the past year. Our reputation for supplying the world with quality agricultural products, while hard earned, is greatly threatened by unnecessary disruptions in the supply chain. Help ensure that Minister Tassi and the Federal Government know what’s at stake and act to #StopTheStrike before it’s too late.

PREDICTABLE OPERATION OF THE PORT OF MONTREAL MEANS:

Over $880 million in annual containerized agricultural economic activity.

Canadian farmers and exporters can take full advantage of free trade with the European Union and Asia.

Less disruption to Canada's containerized supply chain, which is already under pressure from a worldwide shortage of containers.
