As the Port of Montreal labour lockout enters its second day, both sides are drawing battle lines and claiming the high ground. But with no containers moving in or out of Canada's second-largest port, the ball is in the court of the union representing about 850 longshoremen. "The one condition (for a resumption of negotiations) is that the union stop the pressure tactics" that include refusing overtime, said Gilles Corriveau, spokesman for the Maritime Employers Association. The association, which represents shipping companies and negotiates with port workers in various Canadian cities, announced Sunday night that gates to Montreal's port would be locked and all marine activities curtailed as of this morning. At the heart of the labour dispute is the association's bid to end revenue guarantees established during contract negotiations in the 1970s.
