CN announced yesterday that less than a month after an eight-day labor strike ended, the Class I's train movements have recovered to pre-strike ranges.

The strike caused CN's network to run at about 10 percent capacity. Every strike day can cause several days of backlog, requiring time for the network to return to normal operational ranges, CN officials said in a press release.

CN announced its recovery plan after the strike ended in late November.

"We will remain focused on safety as we continue to clear the backlog caused by the work stoppage," said CN President and Chief Executive Officer JJ Ruest. "Our ongoing engagement with our customers and stakeholders as well as the dedication of our employees combined with the favorable weather, has helped this process along in a safe and efficient manner."

The strike involved more than 3,000 CN conductors and rail-yard workers who are members of the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference.
