CN, Teamsters rail conference reach tentative agreement


Yesterday, CN announced it reached a tentative agreement with the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference (TCRC) covering about 1,800 locomotive engineers. The current contract between the Class I and union members expires on Dec. 31.

Details of the agreement weren’t released pending ratification by TCRC members, a process expected to take about 60 days, CN officials said in a prepared statement.

“To my knowledge, it's the first time we have reached a tentative agreement with CN before the expiration of the old contract,” said TCRC President Rex Beatty. “This was only possible after three rounds of intense negotiations, but without the assistance of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service.”
