The big one I have heard about is they want the ability to make the crew work any 8 hours in 24 to cut down on overtime. Also, some travel stuff and hiring practices.

Just gossip...

What kind of cuts/concessions is CSL looking for to make the contract so unappealing?

No doubt about it there will be a strike very very soon. This wonderful patriotic company "Canada Steamship Lines " has already posted our jobs on https://www.shipout.ca/ They say that they value their employees, really !!

Looks like Csl employees refused the company's lastest offer talk of a strike in couple weeks time


This was put out by the SIU of Canada 5 hrs ago!

Notice to all Members:
With the CSL Self Unloader contract out for vote please make sure you have cancelation insurance on all flight tickets as turn around relief jobs may be very limited should strike action be voted for.

So does this then mean what was talked about on here weeks ago as far as some of the CSL ships heading into lay-up if a strike does indeed happen? I think I heard it said if I am correct that it would only effect the self-unloaders then and Not the bulkers. Just have to wonder then if a strike does happen, how long it would last and what impacts it would have on shipping? The CSL self-unloaders have been busy so far at least, hauling ore to Quebec along with Nanticoke as well. Some of their self-unloaders have taken a few grain loads up to St. Lawrence Ports including Montreal among a few of them. It will be interesting to see if any of the other fleets such as Algoma and Lower Lakes maybe if they end up hauling some loads that the CSL ships would have carried. Sorry if I am not on the right tracks here and making a big deal out of all this.
