CN locomotive engineers in Canada ratify new contract

CN announced today that the company's 1,800 locomotives engineers in Canada have successfully ratified a new collective agreement. The union and CN had reached a tentative agreement on March 23 which was approved by the Teamsters vote.

The five-year contract with the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference (TCRC), which runs through Dec. 31, 2022, provides wage and benefit improvements in each year of the agreement, in line with similar contracts in the industry, and modifies work rules that were of concern to both CN and engineers.

CN recognizes the assistance of Peter Simpson, head of the federal mediation and conciliation service, and his staff, during the collective bargaining process.
