    St. Lawrence Seaway workers begin strike action, union says – By The Canadian Press (CBC) / Oct 22, 20023

    Walkout to affect freight shipments on waterway between Montreal and Lake Erie

    The St. Lawrence Seaway has shut down as hundreds of workers walked off the job Sunday.

    The halt is expected to affect cargo shipments immediately along the artery that runs between Montreal and Lake Erie.

    In a release shortly after midnight on Sunday, the union said they were unable to reach an agreement with the employer by the strike deadline, despite negotiations “right up to the last moment.”

    “We cannot allow workers’ rights to be compromised. We remain open to discussion and hope that the employer will reconsider its position for the good of all,” Daniel Cloutier, Unifor’s Quebec director, said in a release.
