Possible Labour Disruption at Blue Water Bridge

The CSCB has been advised by the Federal Bridge Corporation Limited (FBCL) that it remains in collective agreement negotiations with its unionized employees, members of the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) Union Local 501.

The Corporation is committed to ensuring that the Blue Water Bridge and adjoining plaza will remain open at all times. Contingency plans are in place to deal with any eventuality and to maintain traffic flow.

Negotiations are planned for November 19th and if there is no agreement tomorrow, it is expected that a 72 hour strike notice will be given and in turn the FBCL may lock out the union workers which include toll collectors, maintenance, currency exchange and janitorial.
