Canadian media reported that workers at ArcelorMittal steel plants in Longueuil and Contrecoeur-Est in Canada have almost unanimously rejected the latest contract offers from the employer. Workers at the Longueuil plant voted 98% to reject the offer, while those in Contrecoeur-Est voted 99% and office employees 98% against. The union said turnout was very high, between 92 and 95% of members. Union spokesperson Michel Courcy said the members wanted to deliver a clear message to the employer that its offers do not meet the members’ standards.The 800 workers, members of the FTQ-affiliated Métallos union, launched their strike on 2 February 2022, but negotiations have continued. With locations in Contrecoeur, Longueuil, Montreal and Abitibi-Témiscamingue in Quebec and in Hamilton in Ontario, ArcelorMittal Long Products Canada has more than 1,900 employees. The Company has steelmaking, rolling, wire drawing and scrap recycling and processing facilities.
