Molson Canada reaches tentative agreement with striking employees in Montreal

·1 min read

MONTREAL — A tentative agreement has been reached between Molson Canada and the union representing some 425 workers in the Montreal area who have been on strike since March.

Both the Teamsters union and the Montreal-based beverage company confirmed the deal today.

Details of the tentative agreement are not being disclosed before they are presented to members.

The dispute has focused particularly on wages amid rampant inflation, along with pension and work scheduling issues.

Local union president Éric Picotte says the three aspects of the dispute "have been addressed to our satisfaction."

Union members went on strike on March 25 and then rejected a company offer. Workers will vote on the agreement-in-principle Friday evening, with approval leading to a return to work next week.
