Algoma strike ends

Algoma strike ends

Canadian owner Algoma Central Corporation has announced that it has reached a tentative agreement with the navigation and engineering officers in the company’s product tanker fleet, ending a strike that has lasted 10 days.

A total of 54 employees of Algoma Tankers, represented by the Canadian Merchant Services Guild (CMSG), went on strike after contract negotiations broke down.

Algoma said vessels tied up as a result of the strike will commence operations as soon as arrangements are made to return crews to their ships.

Algoma operates the largest Canadian flagged fleet of dry and liquid bulk carriers on the Great Lakes – St Lawrence Waterway. It has expanded into international shortsea markets through a 50% interest in NovaAlgoma Cement Carriers and NovaAlgoma Short-Sea Carriers.
