Autoport strike in Eastern Passage reaches tentative agreement with employer

By CityNews Halifax Staff

There could soon be an end to the strike at the Autoport facility in Eastern Passage.

A tentative agreement was reached yesterday, after CN Autoport requested to get back to the negotiating table with Unifor.

The union’s Local 100 members have been on strike since late February and picket lines at the Autoport facility will remain until a contract is ratified.

The union had called for Ottawa to pass legislation after Unifor said replacement labour was brought in by the employer.

Autoport members will meet today to see and vote on the tentative agreement.

The processing facility ships close to 185,000 vehicles across the country annually, according to the union.
