August 12, 2020 – Canada’s labour minister has rejected requests to intervene in a strike launched Monday by Port of Montreal workers. “We have faith in the collective bargaining process, as we know the best deals are made at the table,” Filomena Tassi said in a statement. “Our government’s clear expectation is for both parties to work together to resolve their differences quickly. We will be monitoring the situation closely, and looking into how to support the ongoing mediation efforts.” Canaan Transport urges that something be done about this situation which has inconvenienced our customers.
