    Traffic backs up at Canada-Michigan border crossings as workers slow entry

    Detroit — Trucks crawled across the Ambassador Bridge on Friday, delayed as much as two hours as border agency workers in Windsor started a “work-to-rule” action that effectively slowed the passage of traffic across the border.

    Commercial traffic is delayed two hours at the Blue Water Bridge, according to the wait time system. Vehicles are backed up for miles in stop-and-go traffic as far west and south as Interestate-94, according to the Michigan Department of Transportation traffic map.

    The move is intended to exert pressure on Canadian officials to meet worker unions at the bargaining table in a contract dispute that has lasted years, experts said. The work action comes ahead of the Canadian government’s plans to reopen the border to fully vaccinated U.S. travelers on Monday following a 17-month COVID-induced closure.
