As of Tuesday, striking federal workers in Canada have escalated their picket efforts, causing disruption to traffic and limited access to office buildings in downtown Ottawa. The Public Service Alliance of Canada, which represents over 150,000 federal public servants, has been on strike for seven days, demanding a larger wage increase and more flexibility to work remotely.

The union’s president, Chris Aylward, has promised to move picket lines to more strategic locations, including ports of entry, to have a greater economic impact. The strike has caused delays and slowdowns, with workers blocking the Port of Montreal on Monday, delaying the arrival of trucks.
