CARM: What all importers need to know about CARM

CN strike update

Negotiations between the union and federal mediators to reach an agreement in the ongoing CN Rail strike have continued through the weekend.

CN calls on the union leaders to consider voluntary binding arbitration by an independent third party, selected by the Minister of Labour, as a means to end this labour dispute and return to the business of moving the Canadian economy safely and efficiently. CN has a small pool of qualified managers that allows the company to operate safely at approximately 10% of normal service across its extensive 22,000 kilometer long Canadian network. Currently, very limited amounts of various commodities are moving across the country.

We are continuing to see containers load to rail from Vancouver, Montreal and Halifax ports, as CN has prioritized moving container traffic to keep Canada’s ports fluid so that they can return to normal operations once the strike has ended.

We will continue to monitor the situation and advise accordingly.
