U.S. Rail Strike Looms

U.S. Rail Strike Looms

Business and government officials are bracing for the possibility of a nationwide rail strike at the end of this week, while talks carry on between the largest U.S. freight railroads and their unions.

The railroads have already started to curtail shipments of hazardous materials and have announced plans to stop hauling refrigerated products ahead of Friday’s strike deadline. Businesses that rely on Norfolk Southern, Union Pacific, BNSF, CSX, Kansas City Southern and other railroads to deliver their raw materials and finished products have started planning for the worst.

Norfolk Southern and CSX said the embargoes were necessary to ensure that critical or even toxic freight is not left abandoned.

We are monitoring the situation very closely, and will advise as new developments unfold.

For more information, please call David Lychek, Director – Ocean & Air Services at (905) 882-4880, ext. 1207.
