CN Rail receives strike notice from train conductors union CNR.TO – RTRS
TORONTO, Feb 5 (Reuters) – Canadian National Railway Co CNR.TO said on Wednesday that the union representing roughly 3,000 of its train and yard operation employees in Canada has given the company a notice of its intention to strike.
The move comes just days after the tentative labor contract reached with the company was rejected by union members.
A workers strike at Canada’s largest rail operator could disrupt a cross-country network that ships goods ranging from lumber to crude oil.
CN, which negotiated the deal with the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference – Conductors, Trainpersons and Yardpersons (TCRC-CTY) in October, had said last week that it would meet with union leaders this week to review the results and discuss how to proceed. (Full Story)
