CORNWALL, ONTARIO, CANADA (WWTI) – St. Lawrence Seaway employees have agreed to a new contract.

The 360 employees that went on strike for over a week have ratified the new deal. In a press release, the St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation said that Unifor, the employees union, agreed to a three-year contract.

The collective agreement reflects the important contributions Seaway employees make every
day to keep this critical transportation corridor moving and delivering for local, regional and
binational economies.

A strike of Unifor-represented employees started on October 22, but a tentative deal was made over the past weekend.

Ships started passing through the Seaway on Wednesday after the waterway re-opened on Monday.
