A lockout has been declared at the Port of Quebec, the union and employer confirmed on Thursday. The Syndicat canadien de la fonction publique, which represents 81 dockworkers in the Quebec City seaport, said the move comes after 98.5 percent of the workers voted Aug. 30 in favour of pressure tactics that could include a strike.  The union has been in talks with the Société des arrimeurs de Québec, representing employers, since June 2022 and the main issue appears to be work hours. Meetings between the parties have been scheduled for October.
