CN, union reach tentative labor agreement
Canadian National Railway Co. said today it has reached new tentative collective agreements with the Canadian Auto Workers union.
The railroad said it is keeping the details of the three-year agreements confidential until the union ratifies them. CAW is expected to schedule a ratification vote early this week.
CAW shopcraft, intermodal and clerical members remain on strike at CN. The strike began on Feb. 20, after the union members rejected previously negotiated ratified agreements.
CN also reached a tentative agreement with CAW members who own and operate trucks. These union members did not strike.
Shippers have suffered minimal service setbacks from the strike, according to CN.
