Canadian Pacific Railway conductors and locomotive engineers on Friday voted to authorize a strike action that could have 3,000 workers walk off the job as early as April 21, Teamsters Canada said in a statement.

The workers, whose collective agreement expired late last year, are asking for more predictable schedules to combat crew fatigue, among other demands, a Teamsters spokesman said.

The union also said that it opposes cuts and concessions requested by CP, because the company is reporting higher profits and strong fundamentals.

Delmar will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as events unfold.
