Soo Line, UTU agree to five-year contract for T&E workers


Canadian Pacific Railway subsidiary Soo Line Railroad recently reached a five-year agreement with the United Transportation Union affecting about 500 train and engine-service workers.

Replacing a contract that's been open for re-negotiation since the end of 1999, the pact includes a general wage increase, changes — some to contain costs — to employees' benefits plan, 401(k) enhancements and work rule modifications.

The Soo Line now has settled contracts affecting more than half its unionized workforce.

During the past month, members of the American Train Dispatchers Association and Brotherhood of Railroad Signalmen ratified agreements with the Soo Line.
