Canadian Pacific, short line reach tentative labor agreements
Canadian Pacific has reached a tentative four-year agreement with Unifor, the Class I announced yesterday.
Details of the pact will be presented to Unifor members for ratification. The current contract is set to expire Dec. 31.
Unifor represents 1,200 mechanical employees.
"This tentative agreement is a testament to the hard work, collaboration and commitment by both sides," said CP President and Chief Executive Officer Keith Creel in a press release. "We have now had back-to-back four-year agreements with Unifor."
Meanwhile, the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen (BLET) has reached a tentative contract agreement with the Chicago, Fort Wayne & Eastern Railway (CF&E).
Ratification ballots, which are due Dec. 27, were mailed late last week to active BLET members who work for CF&E, union officials said in a press release.
The tentative agreement governs rates of pay, benefits and work rules for 40 members.
