Thus, the schedule for the Quebec-Levis ferry remains unchanged. Departure every 40 minutes alternately from one bank to another between 6am and 8pm.
Unions that are members of FEESP-CSN’s ferry group informed the employer of the shift Thursday.
“STQ is pleased with this decision. This is good news for customers of Sorel-Tracy ferries – Saint-Ignace-de-Loyola, Québec-Lévis and Matane-Baie-Comeau-Godbout, since service will not be interrupted.” Press release.
The Société des traversiers du Québec will not comment further on the status of the negotiations.
The abolition of the strike days comes after a “great progress”, according to the union, in the context of renewing the collective agreement.
“The decision was made to leave every room for negotiation, with the aim of arriving at a speedy and satisfactory outcome for the members,” reads a letter from the Regroupement des traversiers, which brings together CSN federations at Sorel-Tracy-Saint-Ignace-de-Loyola, Quebec-Levis and Matan-Bay Como – Godbout Crossings, which represents nearly 200 members.
