CN and its train conductors reach tentative agreement and avoid a strike

CN announced that it has reached a tentative agreement with the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference - Conductors, Trainpersons and Yardpersons (TCRC-CTY) to renew the labour contract for approximately 3,000 CN conductors and yard operations employees in Canada.

Details of the agreement are being withheld pending ratification by TCRC members, a process expected to take approximately 60 days.

Mike Cory, CN executive vice-president and chief operating officer, said: "CN is very pleased to have reached this settlement with TCRC-CTY without a service disruption. This new agreement reinforces CN's commitment to working together with our employees and their representatives to address workplace issues in a mutually beneficial manner."
