CP Rail Update – CIRB Sets Dates for Union Ratification Voting on CP Offers

Canadian Pacific Railway Limited (CP) has been advised by the Canada Industrial Relations Board (CIRB) that voting on CP’s final proposals – for both the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference – Train & Engine (TCRC) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) – will begin on Monday, May 14 at 9:00 am Eastern and close Wednesday, May 23 at noon Eastern.

In the event that final offers are accepted, the potential for a work stoppage will have been averted. If the final offers are not accepted, following the announcement of the vote results, a minimum of 72 hours’ notice will need to be provided before any work stoppage, including a strike or potential company lockout, could occur.

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

For additional information please contact your local Delmar representative.
