Seaway Negotiations Resume

Oct 24, 2023

The St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation (SLSMC) continues to be extremely concerned with the impact the current strike by its unionized employees is having on Canadian and U.S. supply chains and economies. It is receiving ongoing communication from various groups voicing their concern about delays in getting essential cargoes delivered.

Strike action by the UNIFOR locals started just after midnight on October 22nd. Later that day, the parties met individually with Federal Labour Minister Seamus O’Regan and Transport Minister Pablo Rodriguez, who urged them to return to the table.

SLSMC management has been working since the outset of negotiations to reach a mutually beneficial agreement with its unionized employees, and is pleased with the planned resumption of talks with UNIFOR as of Friday morning, October 27th, as confirmed by Government of Canada’s Federal Mediation and Conciliation Services.
