Toronto Terminals Railway, CAW reach tentative accord


On Monday, the Canadian Auto Workers (CAW) and Toronto Terminals Railway Co. Ltd. reached a tentative agreement, averting a potential strike.

Contract details will be released after the pact is ratified by union members; a ratification meeting will be held soon, CAW officials said in a prepared statement.

“This is a deal that our bargaining committee is comfortable bringing to the membership and believe they will accept,” said Bob Fitzgerald, the CAW’s national representative. “We are very happy that a deal was reached in time to avert any possible disruption for rail transit commuters.”

The union represents 125 Toronto Terminals Railway workers who perform maintenance-of-way, track protection and cleaning tasks. In operation more than 100 years, Toronto Terminals Railway provides construction, operations and maintenance services in the Union Station rail corridor for GO Transit, VIA Rail Canada Inc., CN and Canadian Pacific.
