CN, UTU reach tentative terms on five-year pact for Grand Trunk Western yardmasters


Last week, Canadian National Railway Co. and the United Transportation Union (UTU) reached a tentative five-year agreement covering yardmasters in the former Grand Trunk Western territory between Chicago and Port Huron, Mich.

Expiring Jan. 1, 2009, the pact would increase wages a total of 16 percent over the life of the contract, provide full back pay, and improve health and welfare benefits, the union said.

The UTU is conducting a ratification vote among the yardmasters. Results are expected on Oct. 28, the union said.
