Business Operations Leadership Transportation Lana Payne serious wage offer St Lawrence Seaway strike notice

MONTREAL – Unifor says workers at the St. Lawrence Seaway Corp. are ready to strike as of midnight Saturday.

It says it has issued a 72-hour strike notice to the employer and will bargain through Thursday in an attempt to reach a deal.

The union says a strike would effectively shut down transit through the seaway.

Negotiations began on June 19 and 20 with the help of a conciliator.


The two sides held additional talks in September and resumed bargaining on Oct. 17.

Unifor president Lana Payne says in a press release that workers are demanding a “serious wage offer.”
