Canadian National (CN) and the Teamster’s Canada Rail Conference (TCRC) are currently negotiating in good faith to avoid a labor stoppage for 3,000 conductors, trainpersons and yardpersons. The current collective agreement expired in July. A union vote was held in September and a strike mandate was given (99.2% vote in favor). The earliest a strike could occur is November 19, 2019.
Both parties continue to work with federal mediators to resolve the situation. The next round of talks is set to begin on November 12.
Delmar will continue to monitor the situation and advise its customers accordingly.
