LABOUR MANAGEMENT RELATIONS ON THE SAINT JOHN WATERFRONT: ILA LOCAL 273 AND THE MARITIME EMPLOYERS ASSOCIATION

The last two and one-half years have witnessed a deterioration in the collective bargaining relationship ILA Local 273 and the Maritime Employers Association at the Port of Saint John. This report analyses the underlying problems in the negotiating process by means of a model which identifies significant environmental variables, organizational variables pertaining to the union, organizational variables pertaining to management and collective bargaining variables. The study concludes with a description of the two different sets of problems which interact in longshoring at the Port of Saint John and makes a number of recommendations upon which ILA Local 273, the MEA and Labour Canada should act to alleviate the situation.
