CP workers announce strike plans

Two unions representing Canadian Pacific (CP) rail workers have announced they will go on strike April 21 if their demands for a new contract are not met. The workers, including engineers and conductors, want more flexible work schedules. CP wants job cuts and other concessions.

CP is preparing for the work stoppage by executing a “safe and structured” shutdown of its train operations in Canada, which will slow freight movement significantly. It is also urging the unions to continue negotiating with CP and federal mediators assigned to this work dispute.

For more information, please call (905) 882-4880, ext. 207 – David Lychek, Manager – Ocean & Air Services.
