Summary of proposals

  • The Old Port of Montréal Corporation respects its employees and has offered wage increases of 9.5% over four years (taking into account the Quebec consumer index of 1.6%).
  • No freeze or reduction has been requested by the employer.
  • The proposal to unionized employees also includes the establishment of a joint committee to evaluate the overall compensation of its unionized employees in comparison to the market.
  • Between the vote on Friday and the issuance of the strike notice, the union did not indicate its willingness to return to the negotiating table.
