Teamsters and CN sign agreement

Teamsters and CN sign agreement

(Posted on 20/05/19)

CN, Canadian National Railway Company has announced that it has reached a tentative agreement with the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference covering approximately 180 rail traffic controllers in Canada.

“With this tentative agreement covering our rail traffic controllers, we are pleased to conclude another negotiation furthering long-term labour stability,” said JJ Ruest, president and chief executive officer of CN. “We are committed to working together with our railroaders and their representatives in a mutually beneficial manner.”

Details of this tentative agreement are being withheld pending ratification which is expected by the beginning of June.

This comes following an announcement earlier in May that, following four tentative agreements reached between CN and Unifor council 4000 negotiators in March, union members reviewed the agreements and approved three of the four contracts in ratification votes. These tentative agreements were reached prior to their expiration. The three ratified collective agreements cover approximately 2,000 CN railroaders in Canada, including all clerks and intermodal workers, excavator-operators, as well as conductors and locomotive engineers working on the SAR internal shortline in northern Alberta. The agreements include wage increases, ratification bonuses and improved medical, dental and health-care benefits as well as modified work/rest rules.

CN transports more than C$250 billion worth of goods annually for a wide range of business sectors, ranging from resource products to manufactured products to consumer goods, across a rail network of approximately 20,000 route-miles spanning Canada and mid-America. CN, along with its operating railway subsidiaries – serves the cities and ports of Vancouver, Prince Rupert, B.C., Montreal, Halifax, New Orleans, and Mobile, Ala., and the metropolitan areas of Toronto, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Calgary, Chicago, Memphis, Detroit, Duluth, Minn./Superior, Wis., and Jackson, Miss., with connections to all points in North America.
