The Canadian National Railway and the Teamsters Canada Union (TCRC) are currently engaging in contract negotiations to avoid a potential strike. The TCRC represents roughly 3,000 of Canadian National Railway's conductors, train persons and yard persons.
The strike could occur as early at Tuesday, November 18th. Before official strike actions are taken, the union is required to provide 72-hour notice. An update on the negotiations is expected by Friday, November 15 or Saturday, November 16 at the earliest.
If you have questions about how this may impact your business or would like to discuss contingency plans, please contact us here or reach out to your local Ascent Representative.
