The St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation (SLSMC) announced that it has reached agreement with UNIFOR, which represents the corporation’s 460 unionized employees, on Sunday evening to refer certain important issues to binding arbitration, also suspending the right to strike or lockout, ensuring that shippers will encounter uninterrupted navigation until March 31, 2018.

Terence Bowles, President and CEO of the SLSMC, said “I am very pleased that we have reached this agreement, which enables navigation on the Seaway to continue without interruption.”
