    Pros

    Operate the largest fleet of Canadian vessels, providing more employment opportunities.

    Cons

    Vessels out of service due to cargo fluctuations, positions filled by Union members according to seniority.

    Advice to Management

    Company compelled to employ unionized mariners, forced to abide by collective agreements so little advice can be relayed.
