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.
