Labour disruptions in critical services continue to damage Canada’s reputation on the world stage and create uncertainty that manufacturers can ill-afford at a time when our economy is still struggling to grow, says the Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME)

“The threat of ongoing supply chain disruptions, including possible work stoppages at the Port of Montreal, Canadian National (CN) and Canadian Pacific Kansas City (CPKC) railways, have CME raising alarm bells with affected parties and with our business association partners across Canada,” the organization says in a release.

It is asking members to answer a survey of how labour disruptions have impacted manufacturing operations.

“Take our survey now, and help us illustrate the costly and immediate impact on your business, which we will use to push for a quick resolution,” CME says.

CME has also created an information hub to make it easy for manufacturers to access the information they need.

“CME has been sharing our concerns regarding critical supply chain disruptions with all levels of government and will continue to encourage the federal government to use all of the tools at its disposal to support negotiations at the Port of Montreal, CN and CPKC to prevent another round of costly supply chain disruptions. Canadian manufacturers and their workers and families are depending on it.”CME says.

It adds that it will continue to engage with decision makers and the media to share its views on the significant economic repercussions of a Canada-wide supply chain disruption.

“In the unfortunate event that strikes do occur, we will insist on decisive action by the federal government to bring them to an end,” it asserts.
