Toronto, March 20, 2017
Negotiations are continuing between CN and its signal and communications employees, who have given notice that they will go on strike at 12:01 am, Tuesday, March 21, if a negotiated settlement is not reached by that time. CN expects to reach an agreement, but is nevertheless ready to maintain operations if the 700-member union, known formally as the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers System Council No. 11 (IBEW), goes on strike.
We will continue to monitor this situation closely and advise accordingly.
