Montreal port warns of delays as strike ends
The Port of Montreal warned clients of delays and said resuming full operations will take many days as the Senate passed legislation to force 1,150 striking dockworkers to head back on the job. Bill C-29 was adopted by the Senate Friday night, a day after the bill was approved in the House of Commons.

Each of the port’s terminals opened Sunday at 7 a.m. In a statement, the Port of Montreal said there are nearly 20,000 containers on its territory due to this week’s strike.
“The return to a regular flow of goods will require several days of work by port workers and those involved in the logistics chain,” the statement reads. “Clients waiting to either import or export merchandise should expect delays in the coming weeks.” The Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), with which the Montreal port workers are affiliated, described the passing of Bill C-29 as “embarrassing” for all Canadians and unconstitutional because it prevents its members from striking.
In a statement, CUPE said it would challenge the law in court.
