TCRC ratifies four-year pact with CP


The Teamsters Canada Rail Conference-Train & Engine (TCRC) have ratified a new four-year agreement with Canadian Pacific, the Class I announced late last week.

In addition, union members ratified a five-year agreement affecting conductors and locomotive engineers at CP's Kootenay Valley Railway.

"TCRC-represented employees are integral members of the CP family; achieving a four-year agreement provides certainty and stability for not only employees at CP, but for customers, shareholders, and the broader economy," said CP President and Chief Executive Officer Keith Creel in a press release.

The TCRC represents about 3,000 CP conductors and engineers.

The agreement follows a short strike carried out by TCRC-represented train crews in May. Union officials said they are now focused on implementing the new agreement and moving forward with the railroad.

“Workers won a fair deal from CP. Moving forward, we hope to continue working with the company to improve job conditions and ease labor relations," said TCRC President Doug Finnson in a press release.
