Canadian Pacific Railway (CP) has been advised that the Canada Industrial Relations Board (CIRB) has changed the dates for voting on CP’s final proposals – for both the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference – Train & Engine (TCRC) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) – voting will now begin on Friday, May 18 at 9 am Eastern and close Friday, May 25 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.
