CPR, steelworkers union hammer out tentative contract


Canadian Pacific Railway recently reached a tentative three-year agreement with the United Steelworkers of America’s Canadian division (USW) affecting 1,500 clerical and intermodal facility workers.

Subject to ratification, the contract would take effect Jan. 1, 2007,
and expire at 2009’s end. The agreement calls for wage increases, benefit improvements and work rule changes designed to boost productivity and manage costs.

USW represents more than 255,000 workers in Canada.
