The Montreal Cotton Company strike of 1946 was a hundred-day-long strike in which 3,000 mill workers from Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, Quebec fought for the right to obtain a collective agreement. Mill workers in Valleyfield walked off the job on June 1, 1946 as part of a larger textile strike movement which included one of Dominion Textile's mills located within Montreal. The strikes were organized by the Textile Workers Union of America (TWUA), an international union. In Valleyfield, Kent Rowley and Madeleine Parent acted as representatives of the UTWA.

  • The Montreal Cotton Company strike of 1946 was a hundred-day-long strike in which 3,000 mill workers from Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, Quebec fought for the right to obtain a collective agreement. Mill workers in Valleyfield walked off the job on June 1, 1946 as part of a larger textile strike movement which included one of Dominion Textile's mills located within Montreal. The strikes were organized by the Textile Workers Union of America (TWUA), an international union. In Valleyfield, Kent Rowley and Madeleine Parent acted as representatives of the UTWA. By August 1, the strike had been settled in Montreal and workers had returned to work at the Dominion Textile mills after entering negotiations with the company. In Valleyfield the situation was different, and only after a violent riot on August 13 would the company seriously enter negotiations with the workers. After the riot, strikers returned to work September 9 and a collective agreement was signed November 26 between Montreal Cottons Ltd. (the parent of Montreal Cotton Co.) and union representatives.Locally, the strike was important since it was the first time that workers at Montreal Cotton's Valleyfield mill obtained a collective contract. On a larger scale, the 1946 Montreal Cotton strike was reflective of a larger national movement during the 1940s and 1950s against the extremist conservative attitudes which characterized Quebec during la Grande Noirceur under the Duplessis government.The labour activism and the role of women in this strike challenge the historical narrative of a hegemonic conservative Quebec under the leadership of Maurice Duplessis.
