Union ratification vote results for the deal which has reopened the St. Lawrence Seaway are expected to be published by the UNIFOR union by Friday November 3rd.

On Sunday the St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation (SLSMC) reached an agreement with UNIFOR, representing 360 unionized employees, to end the strike that began on October 22nd and blocked traffic on the Seaway.

“We will begin to implement our recovery program immediately and will start passing ships progressively as of Monday October 30th , with the return-to-work of employees at 07:00 am.,” said  SLSMC President and CEO Terence Bowles. “We know that this strike has not been easy for anyone, and value the patience and cooperation of our marine industry binational partners; carriers, shippers, ports, local communities and all those who depend on this vital transportation corridor on both sides of the Canada-U.S. border”.

Nearly $17 billion in goods were transported through this Seaway trade corridor last year alone.
