CN locomotive engineers in Illinois ratify new contract

CN and the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen (BLET) announced on Monday that the 475 locomotive engineers on the Company's Illinois Central (IC) property in the United States have successfully ratified a new collective agreement.

This contract, which runs through Dec. 31, 2019, provides wage and benefit improvements in each year of the agreement, in line with the national railway pattern.

"CN is very pleased to have renewed the collective agreement with the locomotive engineers who work on the Illinois Central, which ensures uninterrupted service to our customers and the overall North American economy," said Mike Cory, CN executive vice-president and chief operating officer.

Clay Craddock, general chairman of the BLET for the IC said: "This deal represents the collective efforts of the officers of the Brotherhood and of the Company. The engineers that voted ratified this agreement overwhelmingly. "
