The Blue Water Bridge will be open Monday despite workers going on strike.
47 workers represented by the Public Service Alliance of Canada went on strike at 6 a.m. after they were unable to reach a new contract with the Federal Bridge Corporation.
The toll collectors, maintenance personnel, and currency exchangers have been without a contract since November of 2014.
The Blue Water Bridge, which links Point Edward and Port Huron, is a major link between Ontario and Michigan and can see as many as 15,000 vehicles on a busy day.
The FBC says despite the strike the bridge will remain open and traffic flow will be maintained throughout the strike.
Contract talks broke down after the two sides were unable to reach an agreement Sunday evening. The union says the corporation demanded major concessions they say would have set workers back for years, such as cuts to workers benefits.
The Federal Bridge Corporation rejected that claim, saying PSAC refused to negotiate in good faith.
The strike comes only days before American Thanksgiving when many Canadians cross the border to capitalize on Black Friday deals.
